Iceland: Our Blue Lagoon Experience

Bucket list item: ✔️

My fiancé and I had planned a trip to Iceland for the longest time. It’s been on my bucket list ever since I heard about the blue lagoon and when we saw the opportunity to go, we took it. Well, we knew that the blue lagoon was a hot commodity, what we didn’t know is that you MUST book tickets a week in advance or you could end up like me.

I went on the site and their were absolutely no tickets available. So what do I do, I stay up refreshing the page all night until something comes up. Well………..SOMETHING CAME UP! I refreshed at 0400 in the morning and their were 2 tickets available for the 2000 time slot. I immediately booked them and hoped for the best.

After that, I started doing some research and that’s when I saw a blog that mentioned you should have at least a 2 hour time block but a maximum of 4 hours. I cringed. I purchased ours for 2000 and it closed at 2200. I was so scared that we wouldn’t get the full benefit and experience of being there but to our surprise, we got more than what we wanted.

We arrived to the blue lagoon around 1940 and they happened to let us go in before our time which was definitely a plus. No hassle getting in, changing clothes, and getting into the water. You will get a wristband that will literally give you access to EVERYTHING!

The initial view of the lagoon was BEAUTIFUL! The water was actually blue and although their were many people in it, it is so big that we had plenty of space to fully enjoy all of the amenities. We purchased the comfort ticket which in reality that’s really the only one you need. We didn’t even need a robe because we stayed in the lagoon the entire time and we didn’t need slippers for that same reason.

The drinks were great, we were able to try on the masks, and we walked around the whole lagoon viewing the waterfall and heading into the oh so very hot sauna.

It did rain but it wasn’t bad at all. Honestly the weather was on and off but you didn’t even notice it with taking in the blue lagoon.

Overall we had a great experience and definitely feel like it’s something we could experience again!

Weekend Getaway: Viva La Mexico!

What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo weekend than in the Country it’s known for?! So we thought. Unfortunately they do not celebrate this American Holiday so my friend and I brought the celebration with us! That’s right……We celebrated in Mexico and WOW was it amazing and beautiful. I always hear about everyone going to Cancun and I’ve seen amazing pictures but I wanted something a little different. So, I called up one of my linesisters and we were on our way to Tulum, Mexico.

I’m going to let the pictures speak for this post but a little back story. I did a little research on my way there due to Tulum being about an hour away taking the cheapest route which was the ADO bus. The total cost in pesos for 2 one way was about 483 pesos. About 12 dollars each. I would recommend the super shuttle for $30. (It’s faster).

We stayed at an all inclusive resort that was absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend staying there and I would stay there again. El Dorado seaside Resorts by Karismo. They had a ton of amenities and their food was amazing! The views were amazing as well!

We had a full list of things for our short time there and made sure to do all of them!

first stop: Tulum Mayan ruins

second stop: Cenotes Casa Tortuga Tulum

of course we had to end with a Photoshoot..

But the most rewarding part was the Massages on the beach! 🤗

Overall, this was by far one of my top 5 places to visit again!

Big 26 in London!

Since moving to Korea I have made a pact to myself to do something big for my birthday. My 25th I spent in Thailand and for my 26th Bday, I was able to spend it in London. I absolutely loved everything about it but most importantly I went for one reason. I am a hugeeeeee Harry Potter Fan. Like a HUGEEEE fan. My close friend was able to meet me there and we had the time of our lives! Here are a few pics to sum up our trip.

Just a few of my favorites: the food, the scenery, the big red buses, the red telephone booths, the people, and the Partying!

This isn’t even half the pics that were taken but all my favorite spots in London! I will definitely have to go back soon! 🙂

#HAPPY TRAVELING!

Thank“FULL” in the Bahamas! Thanksgiving Getaway.

You ever feel like you need to get away? So overwhelmed with life that you would go anywhere? That’s exactly how I have been feeling for the past couple of months. I just needed to get away from the stress, the negativity, the feeling of needing to do and be better. I have wanted to see the swimming Pigs and what other way to spend a vacation then getting on a flight 2.5 hrs away and checking it off your bucket list.

I had no itinerary when I booked this trip or landed. All I knew was that I wanted to get away and see the piggies. When I got to the airport everyone was sooo friendly. I booked my entire stay at the airport with the lady at the information desk for an amazing price. I was able to stay at a hotel downtown Nassau and enjoy all the amazing beaches and restaurants.

I then did the all day trip with 4C’s Exuma Excursions that was recommended by a friend which I highly recommend to you. They were absolutely amazing with their customer service and they took it upon themselves to be my personal photographers. Check out the pics of my trip below!

Recommendations: I did the speed boat trip to Exuma and back from Nassau and it was more time on the boat (9 hours to be exact). If you get sea sick I recommend flying to Exuma then using the company!

Fish Fry is a must visiting Nassau. The food there was absolutely AMAZING! You can definitely feed two with one plate it’s Soo much food and worth every penny. (Try the Snapper fish…I fell in love)

The holiday Inn Express Was literally right downtown Nassau and in walking distance of everything. The perfect place to stay with great prices for 3 Days.

I literally enjoyed every moment of this trip and the pics don’t even justify the views so make sure you visit it for yourself! 💫

HAPPY TRAVELS!

California Wine Tasting: Half Moon Bay 

If you know me, you know that I absolutely love a relaxing day of drinking wine and reading a good book. So when my friends and I were headed to the beach in Sunny San Francisco, California, we saw a sign that read, “NEBBIA WINE TASTING”. I immediately requested we stopped at the sign that said Wine tasting. I am soo glad we did because the location was ABSOLUTELY beautiful. I have always wanted to attend a wine tasting in California so glad I was able to check it off my bucket list. 

Once we got out of the car, I immediately fell in love, it was a small wine tasting garden but it had great views. The signs of the building were really nice and I instantly thought to take a picture. 


When entering the building, it was $10 for 5 tastings including the wine glass. The Host was really nice and she explained every wine in depth. She was extremely friendly. There was also this amazing vinegar mustard dip that was made at the garden that was PHENOMENAL. I don’t even like vinegar but this time I made sure to not miss a bit. 



Behind the wine tasting building was a beautiful garden you can go and walk around and enjoy the view. The flowers were gorgeous, it was super relaxing, and the girls and I absolutely loved it. We stayed here for about 2 hours soaking up the sun. 


Wine: so In regards to the wine. We found 3 wines that we were in love with and for our last 2 we doubled up on the ones we liked the most. We all wanted sweet wine so the host gave us her most sweetest ones. 


Black Muscat- red #1

Orange Muscat- orange #3

California Sparkling Wine- white #2

All 3 are dessert wines and were very good! We ended up combining the black muscat and the California to make an Amazing mix. 


California has never failed me yet with a new wine that I have to go back and try again!

4 Reasons You Should Visit Fiesta! 

                  VIVAAAA LA FIESTA

ARRIBA! ARRIBA! ARRIBA! That is the phrase I took away last night after attending one of San Antonio’s famous traditions. It is when the city comes together and celebrate for 10 days straight. This year it fell on April 20-30th! 

The streets of the riverwalk were completely filled with people in their colorful accessories representing the traditions of Fiesta. My friend and I started on Main Street and that’s where we got our directions to start from central market and work down from there.

FOOD. Being from California, I Liveeeeee for some Corn in a cup, Carne Asada tacos, or a Juicy Gordita. Living on the east coast and overseas, aunthentic Mexican food is definitely hard to find. Welp, thanks to Fiesta, I was able to get some AMAZINGGGG authentic Mexican food, candy, and drinks! 

LIVE MUSIC. There was soo much Live Music from performers on stage, DJ’s playing music on the sides, or just random people on the corner with their boom boxes. It ranged from Country to hip hop to Spanish. There was so much music 🎶 that it was fit for any age and crowd. 

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. If you’re into Margaritas, beer, wine slushes, or more beer, then you would definitely enjoy Fiesta. The Beer is a little pricey ranging from $3-$6 but when you’re having a good time, who’s really counting! 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ the margaritas were premade so in reality it was juice but the wine slushes were AMAZING! Totally worth trying. 

DANCING. Now for the best part. I did not expect to be out all night on a Thursday knowing I had to work the next day but it was totally worth it. My friend and I walked down to central Market following the directions we received and we stayed down there the entire time. There was so much food, beverages, and music. Plus the decorations were beautiful. We ended up walking to where we found the DJ and the younger College students. It was suchhhh a good time. The party was outside but it did get extremely hot to the point of sweat rolling down! 😩😩 (AGAIN, totally Worth it). We danced all night to Literally every type of music. The DJ was awesome and the people were definitely lively. Not to mention the Spurs won that night! 

Seriously, if you are ever in the San Antonio area during the month of April, you must put on your list to attend some Fiesta activities. Promise you won’t be disappointed! ❤️
