    Malaga, Spain

    Okay, now we’re going to get into the good stuff about our honeymoon cruise. If you missed the nitty gritty about what it means to win a honeymoon check that out here. To recap, we won a cruise that left from Malaga, Spain and ended in the Canary Islands on a sail powered cruise line. I’m going to break our trip down into a few posts so it doesn’t get too crazy to read all at once. In this post I’m just going to cover Malaga, Spain and the cruise ship itself, since that’s where it all started. Then I’ll do the actual sailing & Morocco and finally, the Canary…

    Mexico for Christmas

    This year we did Christmas a little different. Mauricio and I had talked about it many times before, but this year we actually gifted ourselves a vacation for Christmas. We had two invitations to go to the same area on the same week in Mexico, the week before Christmas.

It seemed like the absolute perfect opportunity. We decided to take them both up on their offers and do 3 days with each of them. We booked our rooms…

Everything from personalized napkins to wedding toppers to videographers. They had so many little giveaways going and every time you entered one you got another entry into their grand prize giveaway for a honeymoon. They did two honeymoon giveaways per year and this one was for a cruise. So you better believe I…

    San Juan, Puerto Rico

    Two years ago, almost to the date, we were on our favorite island, Puerto Rico! ?? We’ve been to Puerto Rico twice, once in 2015 and again in 2017 for 1 week each time. We did two very different trips and I’m going to split them into two posts, otherwise it would be really long and I might skip over some good stuff. Many people don’t realize it, or maybe they do since Hurricane Maria, but Puerto Rico is a US Territory. This means that traveling there is just like traveling to any US state. You can go there without a passport and you don’t have to have a visa…
