We had a bit of airplane drama while travelling from Martinique to Puerto Rico which resulted in a one night stay at a resort in Guadeloupe! If you’re going to have flight drama the Caribbean is a solid choice. Also, flight drama seems pretty common when flying between islands because there are often many stops […]
Naturally, we wanted to explore more of Martinique so we decided to rent a car for a couple days and hit the road! Martinique is a small, but super interesting island with rainforests, volcanoes, and magnificent beaches.
Fort-de-France is the capital of Martinique. We stayed just outside of the city so we could enjoy beach life better and we visited the city about 3 times. While I don’t have other Caribbean islands to compare Martinique to, I have been to other French cities and I definitely felt like I was in a […]
(My Castle on the Beach, imagine it sung by young Cosette from Les Misérables.) I shall share Schœlcher on the sea shore. A delightful aspect of the way John and I travel is that we have a lot of flexibility in where we go. The only place we “needed” to be was San Francisco at […]
Strasbourg is the cutest town I’ve ever visited probably. We also got to visit one of John’s university friends from Iceland who now lives in Strasbourg with his wonderful family. They kindly hosted us for the weekend, showed us the best of the city, and played some card games with us. It was such a treat […]

I’m not sure I even have the words to describe how amazing the Palace of Versailles is. It’s like every indulgence I’ve ever known, every long bubble bath I’ve enjoyed, every delicate pastry I’ve ever eaten wrapped up in gold with some diamonds sprinkled on top. The Palace in itself is almost endless with its […]
Paris Continued. I wrote a bunch of garbage at the bottom. I just have so many feels about Paris!
OK, so many of you know by now that I’ve fallen madly deeply in love with Paris, like, sorry John if Paris was a person we would have to work out some kind of inter-relationship deal where I could hang out with Paris on the side. My five weeks in Paris was just perfection. Everything […]
I’ve been mostly using this blog to share all the highlights and the best of my adventures but there are an equal amount (probably more) lowlights on my travels. While I might be writing the most boring blog post ever, I feel the need to share these dull things for your non-tertainment.
