Exploring Playa del Carmen: Mayan pyramids

When we started planning our trip to Mexico, the top thing I wanted to do was see the Mayan pyramids. I’ve never seen pyramids in person, Mayan or Egyptian, and I love learning the history and cultural significance behind ancient archaeological sites.

Hiking Oklahoma: Kite Trail

While the rest of the Internet has fully embraced fall, southwest Oklahoma can’t seem to make up its mind. Some days don’t get above 50°F and others we’re still seeing high 80’s. So when we found ourselves with a warm day, we headed straight for the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge and checked out Kite trail!

Hiking Oklahoma: Charons Garden

One of the great advantages of moving west is a change of hiking scenery! My east coast self equates hikes with forests, rivers and mountain views. Here in Oklahoma it’s more cacti and rocks, but we’ve still managed to find some mountain views at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Charons Garden trail.

My favorite Montreal restaurants

My series on visiting Montreal ends on a high note: Montreal restaurants! I’ll be honest: the thing I was most looking forward to about visiting Montreal – outside of my friends, of course! – was the food. Living in a small town has meant that I crave great restaurants even more when I travel.

Montreal Canal Life

Part three of my series on visiting Montreal might be my favorite! We spent the morning exploring the Montreal canal area. It’s close enough to downtown to walk, but far enough to lose most of the city feel.
