I posted about our road trip to the West Coast last week so you already know I enjoy a good road trip!
This road trip was actually supposed to be a family road trip but it turned into a road trip with just my husband, my mom and myself. I am totally fine with that because I think the rest of my family would have annoyed the shit out of me had they been in the same car.
Heading south wasn't just any road trip, this one is special from the beginning because it would be the first road trip my husband and I took as a married couple AND my brother was graduating from boot camp/AIT.
We drove straight through, only stopping for gas and some food. I can proudly say I was a much better co-pilot this trip and I actually drove close to 40% of the way. Our trip out west I only drove about 1% of the time 🤯
The day we got there it was late so we went straight to bed because it was graduation day the next day and I wanted to be the first one there.
I had never been to a base other than OAFB plus seeing my little brother it was all exciting. A dream he has had since he was kid, become a US Soldier. I probably looked like the dog smiling with dentures in because I was that proud of him.
There was only a 1/2 day of freedom that day so we took him and his battle to lunch and then let them show us around base. The next day after this really cool demo with smoke grenades and stuff if they didn't have their orders they got a free day. We could go anywhere within a certain distance, so we went to visit a friend of our in Florida.
The next morning was the last time we would see my brother until summer block so we enjoyed breakfast with him one last time.
The drive itself was so beautiful compared to our drive out west. I highly recommend a road trip through the south and to make stops along the way to explore, there is sooo much history down there. Don't wait for a reason before you go, just go!
Porte Narbonnaise is a great place to start your visit of the fortified city in Carcassonne. There is another gate that gives access to the walls - Porte de l'Aude, which is also said to be a wonderful place to watch the sunset. We wanted to do precisely that, but in the end we decided to hop into our car and visit Lastours instead!😉
Found it: My dream house 🌴.
The story behind the colorful houses (at least what I heard on Curacao): in 19th century Governor Kikkert has forbidden white houses as he got headache from the whitish colors and reflecting sun rays .., but on top, he owned the only color factory on the island 😅🌈! .
🌅 🌋 Sunrise on the active volcanic island of Stromboli. I still remember watching the sun from the ferry and disembarking to this sight. Such a small and charming island with its white rectangular buildings, plant life and friendly locals.
Nusa Penida is famous for the beautiful blue waters that surround the island 💙 🌴 And now with a staircase down to Diamond Beach you can enjoy the views from the top of the cliff side or from the beach itself! 🏖️ Which would you prefer? (📷: @strex 📍: Diamond Beach, Nusa Penida)
Hello Hanoi 🇻🇳👋
We've had a productive first day in Vietnam and we've eaten the best food we've had in months 🍜🥳 I missed this street the last time I visited. Today we started off with train spotting and good coffee. Then we visited the Vietnam Military History Museum - a very interesting day learning from the Vietnamese perspective. .
I’ve always been fascinated by Japan’s culture. But I won’t deny the fact that history class taught us the dark era of Japan during the World War II. Since we have JR Passes, we made sure to utilize its features ~ unlimited rides intercity. For our sixth day in Japan, we explored both historical prefectures of Hiroshima and Nagasaki via shinkansen from Osaka, all thanks to this incredible JR Pass!
Heart Shaped by the Ocean
Shaped by ocean waves, the heart shaped rock covered in red seaweed in the foreground, sets the mood to this tiny parish. With only a dozen or so homes dating back for centuries, time has stood still in this place. I wish I had explored this area more, but after exploring all day and just getting back from swimming in natural pools, I was beat.
The Serengeti offers good wildlife viewing throughout the year. June and July are the best months for seeing the migration and February is the best month for the wildebeest calving. The dry months from June to October offer the best general game viewing.
Serengeti National Park is one of the most visited National Parks in Africa. The Park hosts one of the largest and most diverse large predator-prey interactions worldwide, providing a particularly impressive aesthetic experience.

The Zanzibar Rock restaurant serves a wide variety of seafood which one can relish on and the food served here is always fresh as the nature’s beauty surrounding it. The food has a distinct twist of the Zanzibari cuisine which include delicacies like Fish Carpaccio, Calamari prepared with prawns and zucchini or familiar treats like Lobster Spaghetti and much more. Besides, drinks such as wine, beer and soft drinks are also served.
