Ten years of travel: Love

“I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.”  Mark Twain.  If that’s the case, then what we’ve found out in 10 years of travel is that we actually do like each other.  The secret sauce to a good…

Ten years of travel

December 13 is our ten year wedding anniversary. That means we’ve been exploring the world together for ten years.  I’m only 30, so realizing that 10 years is one-third of my life is crazy.  But, I wouldn’t have it any other way.  In celebration of the anniversary, I thought I’d start a series on my…

Travel Guide: Iceland

Travel Guide: Iceland

Between the cheap flights and the hundreds of beautiful outdoor sights including hot springs, Iceland has quickly become THE place to be.  In fact, there were six times more tourists in Iceland in 2017 than the people who live there!  It is definitely a tourist hot bed.
