CA to NJ: Day 4 — Nebraskan Fossil Beds

Finally, the road trip officially started!  Pop Pop and I left the Fort Collins Best Western on Thursday, Sept. 24, but we made sure to stop at my favorite pancake destination, Urban Egg, which I discovered last year on the road trip out to California. It was my first time eating indoors during the pandemic,… Continue reading CA to NJ: Day 4 — Nebraskan Fossil Beds

CA to NJ: Day 2 — An Open Road

On the road again, and seemingly forever. Pop Pop and I were behind the wheel by 7:30 in the morning on September 22 with nothing but driving on our minds. The road trip back to NJ was definitely less relaxed than the trip to CA, because while we had about the same amount of time,… Continue reading CA to NJ: Day 2 — An Open Road

Cross Country Road Trip: Utah

June 11, 2019 The western-style breakfast did not disappoint this morning with French toast, classic biscuits and gravy, eggs, fruit, yogurt and more.

Cross Country Road Trip: Colorado to Utah

June 10, 2019 I really wish I could have stayed longer in Fort Collins with my family. Besides just being very artsy, Fort Collins seems to have a very outdoorsy culture with many activities centered around the nearby mountains. I was of course just thankful to see my family and my mini-me cousin, since I… Continue reading Cross Country Road Trip: Colorado to Utah

Turks and Caicos: Snorkel Cruise

What a way to end vacation! We signed up for a “Snorkel and Conch Cruise” with Caicos Dream Tours, which is a four-hour snorkeling and lunch cruise around the waters of the Grace Bay area. A shuttle bus picked us up at our hotel at 8 a.m. and drove us to another resort, where we… Continue reading Turks and Caicos: Snorkel Cruise
