Honduras “Christ Statue” El Picacho

If you’re going to be in Tegucigalpa, Honduras I’m going to tell you about a “not-so-secret” must-see monument. While spending a week in Honduras, my husband and I spent a day sight seeing and tasting the local food. One of the destinations on our tour was the “Christ Statue” on the hill El Picacho. The Christ at El Picacho is in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. The city is amazing and overflowing with culture. As soon as we stepped off of the plane onto the tarmac at Toncontin International Airport, we knew we weren’t in the U.S. anymore. I’ve travelled to several continents and have never landed on the tarmac, so that alone was worth the trip. After spending a few days in the guest [Click here to continue reading]

Amsterdam, Netherlands One-Day Walking Tour

A few weeks ago while traveling to Kenya, my husband and I had some time to kill on a layover in Amsterdam. We could either spend six hours sitting in the airport, or go out and see the city. We knew we’d be a bit tired once we arrived in Amsterdam, so we didn’t want to plan a hectic itinerary. Instead, we opted for breakfast and a walking tour of the Netherlands. I really wanted to see the canals in person and get some waffles. After leaving the airport and getting our passports stamped, we hopped on the train to the Amsterdam Central. It took us about 10 minutes to make our way from the terminal, through customs and over to the train station. Then [Click here to continue reading]

Six Flags Over Georgia | Family Getaway

Our Six Flags Over Georgia family getaway was sponsored in part by Six Flags. They invited us out to experience the park to facilitate this post. This has been a long month y’all! All of the back to school shopping, registrations, physicals, dentist appointment and eye exams have worn me out. This has always been a busy month for me when it comes to preparing for back to school. With all of the running around, I wanted to get away and do something fun with my kids before they got busy with school assignments. My two middle children are in high school and the youngest is in junior high. Their schedules get very busy with assignment once school is in session so I knew now [Click here to continue reading]

My husband and I just got back from an amazing time in Africa that included time spent on safari. While the sights were breathtaking, no on told us what a toll the actual ride would take on our bodies. The Safari we went on was in northern Kenya, where the Samburu and Turkana tribes live. Our job there was serving the people of those two tribes and we had to drive between where we stayed and where the tribes lived. The terrain was breathtaking, but [Click here to continue reading]

Best Attractions in New York City

New York City is one the the most exciting cities on the planet. It’s made up of 5 boroughs full of amazing things to do, see, smell, hear and taste. Growing up there allowed me to have so many experience I know I would have missed out on growing up any place else. Now that I no longer live in the city, I love growing back as a tourist. One day one I visit friends, family and my old stomping grounds, but for the rest of my time there I do touristy stuff. Since I grew up there and now go back as a tourist I want to tell you the top three places I recommend you go if it’s your first time in New York.  World [Click here to continue reading]
