December 2018- San Juan, Puerto Rico.
At the end of November, we took a quick weekend trip to Puerto Rico. Even though it was a quick trip, we had a ton of fun walking the streets of Old San Juan, visiting the Castillo San Felipe del Morro and San Juan Gate, eating local foods (always a must for us), and of course getting in some beach time. There is so much to do on this beautiful island, and because our trip was short we did not get to do everything. But that just means we will have to go back!
October 2018- Stopover in Paris
In October we enjoyed a 3 day stopover in Paris! Though it was a quick stay, it was jam packed with activities as there was so much to see! We strolled through the Jardin de Tuileries and walked along the Seine River. We visited Les Invalides, which contains museums and monuments all related to France's military history and where the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte stands. We saw the Mona Lisa at the Louvre Museum and watched the Eiffel Tower sparkle at night when we took a boat ride in the evening. Paris at night is beautiful! We also didn't want to miss the Notre Dame Cathedral or the Fontaine Saint-Michel. We always love trying new foods so when in Paris we tried foie gras and brie de Meaux, both delicious. The cake on the top though was watching Moulin Rouge! Such a great show!
