Sitting in our private cliff-side pool with a fire warming the cool evening air and the warm water soothing our tired bodies, we stared deeply into each other’s eyes. And with quiet minds and happy hearts, we let our love fill us completely – washing over every worry and thought that usually distracts us. We didn’t have to come to such a special place to remember why we married each other six years ago. But the healing waters and beautiful scenery we enjoyed during our romantic getaway at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa definitely helped.
Since deciding to become full-time RVers a few months ago, we have been filled with many conflicting emotions. Although we know we will be back to visit Colorado, we can’t help but feel a little sad to leave this wonderful place behind. However, we are beyond excited for life on the road! So, before our next chapter begins, it only seems right to take some time to reminisce on our 4.5 years here. And although we have had countless unforgettable days, we have put together our 20 favorite Colorado memories to share a small snapshot of how amazing this beautiful state is!
Iceland has become a very popular vacation destination in recent years and the reasons why are quite obvious if you have seen any pictures of this amazing place. One of the most iconic and well-known bucket-list destinations in Iceland is the Blue Lagoon. However, the Myvatn Nature Baths are an amazing, very similar option too. But, which is best for you? Here’s a handy comparison to help you decide between Iceland’s Blue Lagoon vs. Myvatn Nature Baths:
After not one but two trips to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon (because we just couldn’t bare to cut our time there short), we started on our way back East. We had plans to grab lunch in the cute, little fishing town of Höfn before starting our East and North Iceland explorations.
We have officially returned to the real world after two weeks of exploring some of the most breathtaking places we’ve ever seen. I spent months creating our Iceland camper van road trip itinerary and drooling over pictures. But nothing could have prepared me for what we experienced while we were there. And since our return, I have been struggling with answering one seemingly simple & inevitable question: “How was your trip?”
We saw waterfalls, canyons, glaciers and cliffs. We hiked a haunted mountain path, drove on terrifying dirt roads with steep inclines, almost got blown away by insane wind, saw where a troll-man used to live, experienced Reykjavik on a Saturday night and laughed hysterically while being herded by a sheep dog … plus so much more! So, when I blurt out “great” or “amazing” when I’m posed with this deceptively difficult question I feel extremely guilty, like all the Icelanders in the world are collectively shaking their heads at my verbal inadequacy.
