Top Must Sees in Iceland

Iceland holds a special place in our hearts. We traveled to Iceland for our honeymoon and it was Mark’s first international flight. Instead of going somewhere tropical or romantic, we wanted to do something more adventurous. The beauty of Iceland is something you can’t describe. You feel like you’re inside a postcard everywhere you look. Even though it rained or snowed every day the 5 days we were there, we had the most incredible time. It’s simply one of the most stunning places on Earth. Iceland is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for adventure and enjoy being outdoors. This isn’t a place where you’re going to relax.

My 21 Must-See Places to Visit in Colombia in 2019

Posted: 4/18/2019 | April 18th, 2019 From the blue waters of Tayrona National Park, the sweeping views of the Cocora Valley, and the ruins of San Agustín, Tierradentro, and the Lost City, to the white colonial buildings of Popayán and the hustle and bustle of its metropolises, Colombia is packed with things to see and do. I’d wanted to visit Colombia for years. And after spending six weeks there, I must say, it lived up to the hype. I mean I’ve been fawning over it a lot in my last few posts. And I know I’m the millionth blogger to do so, but it really is as incredible as people say. (Even getting knifed there couldn’t stop me from loving the country.)
