Remember my Kickass European Itinerary I shared with you last month?   Well I’m finally settled back into real life and football mom life so it’s time to get back into the groove of sharing my travel stories and tips with you from that amazing adventure. Strap in as I tell you all about how I stayed in a European castle for free. Yes, I said free!!!

Rainforest Hike and Waterfall Adventure in Puerto Rico



I should have titled this post “How to conquer the world in 3 hours!”  Alas that went against my goal to use more SEO friendly blog titles.    Anywho, last month I traveled to Puerto Rico for a destination wedding of a good friend and sorority sister.  I had known about this trip for quite some time, but the planning for Trinidad and the Caribbean cruise had commanded all of my attention in the months prior.   I’ve actually been to Puerto Rico twice before this trip so I was looking forward to returning.   We did all of the usual touristy things on that first trip, the forts, Old San Juan, El Yunque rainforest.  It was awesome but this time around I was determined to find a new adventure in Puerto Rico.
