Rustic Weekend Getaway to Virginia

A major perk to living in Washington, DC is its proximity to beautiful countryside in surrounding Maryland and Virginia. This always makes for perfect weekend getaways! At the tail-end of summer, we were in search of a getaway to round off the season and what better way to do that than with a couples trip into the Virginia countryside.

Where to Stay in Iceland

One of the main reasons to travel to Iceland is to witness its spectacular volcanoes, picturesque waterfalls, and black-sand beaches. So wouldn’t you want to stay as close as possible to it all? Carrie and I were determined to not only do just that, but to find the perfect rustic cottage for our memorable trip to Iceland.

With the Dead Sea receding in the distance behind us, my excitement grew.  I had been looking forward to returning to Madaba since I left nearly 8 years ago. 

Jordan Road Trip Part II: Aqaba to the Dead Sea

After a few days of lounging around in balmy Aqaba we packed our car yet again and drove north to the Dead Sea.  Even though Albert and I both lived in Jordan for two years, neither of us had taken the Jordan Valley Highway.  This highway spans the length of the country from Aqaba in the south to just near the border with Syria in the north running along the Dead Sea and Jordan River.

Jordan Road Trip Part I: Amman to Aqaba

After spending a few days in Amman, Albert and I packed up the little Hyundai we rented from Budget and headed to the furthest point south in Jordan, Aqaba.   Situated on the Gulf of Aqaba and bordered by Saudi Arabia and Israel, with Egypt off in the horizon, Aqaba has a desert climate and makes a perfect escape in the colder months.
