Have you ever been somewhere and just fell in love? Believe it or not, I completely felt that way about Chicago. I have heard (and read) so many terrible things about this place: the crime is horrific, the city is corrupt, the weather is shit, the list goes on. Despite all of these things you’ll hear, this is a beautiful city, and if you ever get the chance to go. Please do. Continue reading “CHICAGO”
This being my first trip out of the country, I thought I’d be scared or have a complete culture shock, but to my surprise, it was the total opposite. There are things that I found to be peaceful in Tokyo that would drive me crazy back home. Maybe because of where I was or maybe it was how people in Tokyo dealt with things differently that made it so easy to slip into the daily activities with no problem. Whatever it was, it made me happy to experience it and terribly sad to go. Continue reading “Tokyo (Part III)”
Now that I finally have Randy’s pictures, I can finish up Part Deux. Randy and I went to 7 districts total. I know, not a lot, but these places were a MUST on our first trip and we spent all day going through shops, eating, shopping, and, did I mention eating? We LOVE to eat, so we spent a lot of time doing that. Continue reading “Tokyo! (Part Deux)”
Whoo! What a ride. I’ve been back from Tokyo for almost 3 weeks, and I’m just getting around to writing this. It’s been pretty crazy with final exams, trying to catch up with my job, and recovering from an AWESOME trip. I don’t even know where to start… I guess, the airline? How many people actually talk about that? haha Continue reading “Tokyo! (Part 1)”
Before we got married, my husband and I made a deal that we would travel to at least 1 country and 1 state a year. A little ambitious for us since my husband is a cook and works weekends at a place that doesn’t offer paid vacation. I mention weekends because if we both had weekends off, weekend trips out-of-state would be a lot easier.
This is my list of places I am constantly staring at on Pinterest, Google Images, and other blogs. This list will change based on our adventures. Continue reading “Oh, The Places We’ll Go…”
I got married last August to the sweetest guy ever. We had booked our flight for our honeymoon about 5 months before we were supposed to leave on Spirit Airlines. A friend of mine had told me about Spirit Airlines and how cheap their flights were (you pay extra for luggage and better seats). We got two round trip tickets for an 8-day (Tuesday – trip for about $500, but after adding 2 carry-ons ($70 each for a round-trip – you pay $35 each way), bumping up to their BIG Front Seats for another $70 each for a round-trip, and taxes, our total was almost $800 which was not terrible to me because I was a complete noob about travelling.
