So Friday we made our way to the front desk of our resort to load the boat and head towards the Malè. It was sad watching the island we had spent the past week at slowly fade away until we could no longer see it. Once we got to Malè we boarded our flight and… Continue reading Our Way Home
On Thursday we opted to do some laying out on the pool deck to get some more color before leaving the next day for our journey back home. We also decided to snorkel! And I am so glad we did because we got to see a giant sea turtle. It was such an incredible experience!… Continue reading Maldives Day 4
Day 3, or Wednesday, consisted of lots of beach time as well as a nap! Woo! Catching up on some Zz's. So starting our day we actually got up in time for breakfast! It was pretty delicious. And let me stop to tell you how wonderful the wait staff are here. They are extremely friendly… Continue reading Maldives Day 3
So we struggled with sleeping and getting up. The Maldives is 9 hours ahead of Fort Wayne, Indiana, so the struggle was real! In fact, so real that we missed breakfast. And breakfast food is my favorite! So Day 2 we spent a lot of time in the pool, in the ocean, and getting our… Continue reading Maldives Day 2
After a 10 hour flight from London to Colombo, Sri Lanka and an hour flight from Colombo to Male, Maldives, we had finally made it! However, we still had to get to the island we were staying at. Ellaidhoo. An hour and a half speed boat ride or 25 minute sea plane ride. We went… Continue reading Maldives Day 1
So Ben & I went to the Maldives for the week. Our flight departed from Chicago, Illinois and headed straight for London, United Kingdom.

Day 2 started out early and scrumptious. We headed to Torchy's Tacos. This establishment started out as a Food Truck that grew into a restaurant. You may think tacos in the morning may not seem delicious, but they have breakfast tacos that are delicious. We got bacon, egg, and cheese tacos. Mmm. If ever in… Continue reading Surprise Vacation: Houston, Texas. Day 2.
So Day 1.. Our flight was early! 8 A.M. Everything went smooth. From checking in, to security, to flying to Houston. Now, if you have never flown Southwest, let me explain how it works. Everything is the same when it comes to domestic traveling. Until it comes time to board. Instead of being assigned a… Continue reading Surprise Vacation: Houston, Texas. Day 1.
So as mentioned in a previous blog post, we decided to go on a 3-day weekend surprise trip. What we did is each of us wrote out 3 different U.S destinations as our "bucket list", we flipped a coin on who's list we would pick from, and the other secretly planned a trip. Ben happened… Continue reading Surprise Vacation: Houston, Texas
As I have mentioned before, we live in the United States. In fact, in the state of Indiana. While cooking dinner I thought about the international trips we have planned and how excited we are for them! But then I thought about the states we have yet to travel to in our own country. So… Continue reading 50 State Travel Challenge
