A budget for any vacation/holiday is a personal topic. It’s scary to allow others to see how we chose to spend our money. We risk judgment and ridicule. However, the benefits of sharing go back to the theme of all my blogs which is to share all parts of our Camino experiences despite what others […]

All Blogs, Recipes

In the midst of the COVID virus pandemic, we purchased a 21-pound turkey for two and it’s a good thing we love turkey leftovers!

It’s critical to focus on the positive when you’re deep in the weeds working on your goals. And, oh my gosh, these weeds are thick! At the of each day, we want to be able to say, “we did everything we could.” We want to say that but some days we just soak in our […]

Camping & Hiking Glacier National Park

We were quite apprehensive about camping and hiking Glacier National Park. With a bit of research, asking questions of those who have gone before us, and a lot of preparation, we changed from being apprehensive to filled with anticipation and excitement.

Campground Review Camp LeConte Luxury Outdoor Resort

During our Spring Break in March, we visited the Smoky Mountains and stayed at Camp LeConte Luxury Outdoor Resort for the first time. We loved this campground.

During our recent extended trip to Providence, Rhode Island, we didn’t really have time to explore too much of the local craft spirits scene. There are two iconic Rhode Island beverages that we tried, however, that we felt were perfect candidates to work well as a cocktail. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our […]

Not only do we love to try local food when we are traveling, but we also love to search for local wineries, breweries, and distilleries. See our Florida Cocktails post for a great example. While visiting the Smoky Mountains, it is difficult to get out of the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville area without trying two […]

Meet our new YouTube Channel!

By on March 27, 2019

For some reason, we have been really nervous to start a YouTube channel. I think that watching our favorite vloggers such as Keep Your Daydream, Less Junk More Journey, and Gone With the Wynns has created some pressure that was just overwhelming. We tried shooting a video back over the summer but never pulled the […]

We have rung in the New Year in some fantastic ways, but there is nothing like ringing in the New Year on a beach! We have been celebrating New Year’s Eve together since 2006 and always try to make it memorable. Before the RV, we celebrated in Chicago near my family. But now that we […]
