Why I Slept in a Hammock for a Week

I had an amazing experience studying Spanish for one week with the Na'atik Language and Culture Institute in Felipe Carillo Puerto, Mexico. Since John has limited vacation time and isn't as interested in learning Spanish as I am, this was a solo trip for me. This small Mayan town about 3 hours south of Cancun offers genuine hospitality with smiling locals and authentic Mexican cuisine along with endless opportunities to practice speaking Spanish (or Mayan if you'd rather!).

Snæfellsnes Peninsula Road Trip

Iceland offers endless road trip opportunities. During our first visit, we road tripped around the Ring Road. Our second drive was much shorter but still full of spectacular stops along the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.

Try Some Mole in Puebla

If you're like us, after a few days in a big city it's time for a break. We chose to escape by visiting the little city of Puebla. In our short visit, we tried authentic mole, enjoyed the nightlife, and visited the forts from Cinco de Mayo.
