Pirana Fishing

When Brandon and I decided earlier this year to make a second trip to Peru, focusing our visit on the Amazon rainforest, I immediately told him I wanted to try my hand at piranha fishing.  I’ve always loved fishing, even though Brandon holds little interest in it.  In fact, the first time Brandon ever went […]

And more specifically York, England. I’m a planner through and through.  I plan out my vacations 6+ months in advance, picking out everything from hotels to restaurants to activities we plan on doing.  After all, it’s pointless to spend a night in a town if there’s nothing in that town that interests me.  So when […]

Today’s post highlights the best restaurant I have eaten at to date, Puerto Madero.  Brandon and I visited Puerto Madero on a weeklong trip to Cancun.  He had just returned from a 3-month deployment and this was our little celebration vacation.  I wanted to find a nice restaurant where we could have a quiet, formal […]

While perusing through it I saw the Maine Windjammer […]
