Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Eight: Casa Batllo

Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Seven: Park Guell

Epic Honeymoon ReCap – Episode Seven: Park Guell

Unlike Sorrento, Rome, Florence, or Palma Majorca, when Vince and I got to Barcelona we were there to stay for awhile. Which meant I bought multiple travel guides and even a pocket English-Spanish book thingy that I didn’t use once. Pro Tip: Rick Steve’s guide […]

And the Caribbean Cruise 2012 Scent Is…

Okay maybe I should have polished that bottle before photographing it… my bad. Anyway. Every time I go on vacation I allow myself one extravagant purchase: New perfume! And our Friend’s Cruise this September was no exception. The challenge this time: I already own most […]
