Visiting Jamaica can feel as if you've fallen into an advertisement for the good life: palm trees sway in the Caribbean breeze while reggae music plays in the background. With a year 'round average temperature of 80° and more than 250 days of sunshine, a visit to Jamaica is meant to be spent outdoors.
Aside from the incredible snorkeling, hiking, and scuba diving that can be done all around the island, there are several outdoor attractions of note in Jamaica, many of which focus on the beautiful rivers and waterfalls that dot the island.
So, when you're planning your next time to the Land of Wood and Water, add a few of these outdoor activities into your itinerary.

A little bit of fun, a little bit of work: isn't that how every good weekend should be?
Landon, my husband had been feeling terrible all week, so we had a night in on Friday catching up on the last season of The Walking Dead. Only a few more weeks until we find out what really happened with Negan!!

In recent years, Iceland has hit the travel scene in a big way. And, given that the country is very safe for visitors, has gorgeous scenery straight off of a postcard, and is where you can often see the Northern Lights (a major entry on my bucket list that still needs to be checked off!), it's no wonder that people are clamoring to book their trips here.

Well, this isn't quite the post that I had planned for today, but my daughter decided that she was deathly ill on the way to school. Instead of heading to work at the coffee shop to finish up the post I was going to run, I got to bring her back to the house where her mysteriously hurting stomach cleared up suspiciously fast after a two hour nap.
In other words, I've been conned by my three year old. What a way to start the week!

I was provided a MunchPak free in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
Whenever we travel somewhere, my husband and I love to focus on locally owned restaurants and shops. Doing so allows us to have more contact with the flavors and textures that make up whatever region we find ourselves in that day.

Cruising: it seems as if everyone has an opinion on it.
Some people refuse to go on anything else, while others refuse to even consider the idea. I fall in between--I've been on several cruises and very much enjoyed them, but like to vary my travel methods between boat, rail, car, and plane.
Variety is the spice of life, after all!
If you're one of those people who can't understand why anyone would spend a week or more aboard the same ship, this post is for you...and you might be surprised at what you find.
Here are my top 8 reasons why I love going on cruises.

Hello, readers (if any of you are still out there)!
I have been a bad blog friend. I haven't updated this blog since late April...and, to be honest, I have even forgotten that I had a blog at times.
Did I intend to take such a long hiatus? Not at all. As with so many things in life, it just happened. And the longer I stayed away from it all, the harder it seemed to jump back into the swing of things.
