Big Day at the Beach!

Traveling for work isn’t so bad since I haven’t had to go anywhere for about three years. This year rolled around and I ended up having to travel for work. I tried to get out of it but I just couldn’t. Last resort would be if for some reason my travel wouldn’t be approved due to lack of funding, then I’d get to stay at home. Who wouldn’t want to spend almost 2 weeks at the beach, beachfront Well I ended up traveling during June for work. It’s not bad spending the afternoons and the weekend on the beach, but the fact I’d be away on my birthday. Well I was blessed that my hubby came down with me for the first four days and we got to spend some of my birthday together. He took me to breakfast which was awesome!

Maybe next year we’ll head back to the beach for fun, and not for work. It was nice getting up early, sitting on the balcony and taking walks on the beach before work. Happy Birthday to me!


If your wondering where I stayed – I’m staying it is the Wyndham Garden in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
Great place! I had a small kitchen with a full size fridge so I was able to shop for groceries and not have to eat out every day.

Ireland – Questions Answered

Someone asked me about this picture from my blog header.

Isaacs Hostel Dublin! A great place to stay! We loved it!

So to answer the easiest thing would be to refer them to this post from last summer. The picture is of Isaacs Hostel in Dublin.  We stayed there during our trip to Ireland.  You can read about it here:  Ireland  and More Ireland

Never say you are too old to stay in a hostel!  Do your research, read reviews, search Google for blogs that talk about where you want to stay, and then contact them directly with any questions you have!

Several years ago I took a leap of faith and traveled to Italy to visit a friend while I was on spring break. While I was visiting we did a little sightseeing and decided to drive from Aviano Italy to Munich Germany. I could not believe all the castles and ruins that we saw along the way. I’d like to go back one day and take my husband with me. This was my first international trip all by myself. Since then we’ve traveled to Ireland…no more putting things off, waiting till later or the when the ‘time is right’. We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow so go for it today!
