Greek Islands

The Greek islands was a vacation out of a fairy-tale.  Every island had its own story to tell and sights to see.  Our Greek adventure was ten days long on the Sea.  My family chartered a boat and we got to live the life like a sailor.  We wined and dined the entire vacation and…

Taylor River Lodge, CO

Hiking Trails, white water rafting, and smoldering bonfires; Taylor River Lodge, Colorado.  As soon as we stepped off the plane, we were overwhelmed by the extraordinary natural views that this unforeseen, remote part of Colorado had to offer.

Paris, France

  Wine, truffles, and charming train rides; what more can you ask for, Paris, France. Our trip to France began with us flying from Chicago to France for a four-day weekend get-away.

Skiing, snowboarding, and cheese fondue, what more can I say; Sun Valley, Idaho.  Waking up with elk outside our window, with a cup of warm coffee in hand, contemplating our winter sports filled day, makes for the perfect winter wonderland.  Everywhere in Sun Valley is absolutely stunning, with picturesque views of the mountains everywhere your…

Scotland

A trip filled with castles, whiskey, and lochs; Scotland.  During our Scotland adventures Jalen and I were not able to sight the Loch Ness monster while nestled in our cozy hotel that over looked the Loch Lomond Lake, but this destination is one of our top choices.  Scotland to us, was a vision of rolling hills,…

Puerto Rico

One of the easiest and most relaxing destinations we have gone to, Puerto Rico.  With a direct flight and no passport needed this is a must see island.  If you do plan on visiting Puerto Rico I have two suggestions for you; go during the off season and rent a car!  Renting a car was…
