A weekend getaway|Burlington, VT

This weekend, we took a road trip with our friends to one of our favorite spots, Burlington, Vermont. We always seem to visit Burlington when it rains or when it is cold, but it is still a fun town with lots to do and see (and eat!). We had a great day! Ian and I... Continue Reading →

Check-In to Airbnb

Here is a guest blog post by my husband, Ian, about our experience with Airbnb! We have now used Airbnb for two trips which officially qualifies us to have an opinion. We have received many questions about this service. While we were a bit hesitant at first and were still hesitant after just an OK,... Continue Reading →

Ireland | Cliffs of Moher

Today is our last day in Ireland and what better way to close out an amazing trip than a trip to the Cliffs of Moher! This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we couldn't recommend it more to everyone. It's a must-see. The cliffs are magnificent; it is a truly magical place. We found ourselves speechless...

Ring of Beara | Healy Pass

On Friday, March 15, we hopped in the car and drove around the Ring of Beara. The Ring of Beara or Beara Peninsula has two mountain ranges: the Caha Mountains and the Slieve Miskish Mountains. We explored the County Kerry side and took the Healy Pass which was cut during the Great Famine as a... Continue Reading →

Today, we arrived in Fanore, a small village in County Clare on the west coast of Ireland. After a long drive and dinner at a nearby pub, we are back in our Airbnb... Continue Reading →

Dublin | Day Two

On Tuesday, March 13, we woke up to sunny skies and a busy day ahead of us. Note: Ireland is chilly (all the time!). Even in the summer, it doesn't get past 67-68 degrees. Make sure you wear layers so that you can take them off/put them back on throughout the day. I always wore... Continue Reading →

Dublin | Day One

Greetings from Dublin! The past two days have been a whirlwind of walking, eating, and gawking at the beauty this city brings. We arrived yesterday morning exhausted from our plane ride but still hoping to get some of Dublin in before crashing. We made it to our Airbnb and we were not disappointed. It's literally right...

Take the plunge

Currently, I find myself sitting in a beach chair listening to the sound of the waves crash against the snowy, white sands of Miramar Beach. A few weeks ago, when we were invited on a spontaneous trip to visit family, my husband and I immediately hesitated. We thought about our jobs, about school, and about... Continue Reading →
