WELCOME TO ICELAND

Foreign Films with A Movie Lover’s Review

I am beyond thrilled to write this post today. Besides traveling, I would say my other love in life is movies. I try to go to the movie theaters at least once a month, and I usually need to see the hottest blockbusters on the Thursdays they come out. But I also love Netflix and…

Why Wales Should be on your Travel Bucket List

Conwy, Wales has, in fact, taken the spot for my most favorite place ever (previously held by Cannon Beach, OR). Wales is the small, neighboring country of both England and Scotland, and although it isn’t as tourist heavy – it should be.
