I Arrived in Greenland

Exploring Greenland
Visiting Greenland has always been in the back of my mind but I feared putting it on my yearly bucketlist because I didn’t think I’d never make it happen. I guess that’s the entire point of a bucketlist. It’s a long way to go for an experience and it’s cold, but my gosh, it’s worth it! The expansive natural beauty is remarkable. Yesterday we arrived in Nuuk, Greenland and today we spent our first full day discovering the beauty that surrounds it.   Continue reading

Gourmet Meals at Home without Cooking

21st Century Food - Montreal
Admittedly, I hate cooking. I always have. I do it more often now because I feel obligated to make healthy meals for Athena but it’s certainly not because I like it. With our recent move to Montreal and Athena starting school, I looked for another solution to bland meals or monotonous dishes that I make for us.  I heard of healthy catering services for diets before so I searched for something similar but for busy families or just parents like me who hate to cook and I found my heaven. 21st Century Food prepares fresh, healthy, gourmet meals and delivers them right to your door! We had restaurant quality food every night this week and it was delivered to our door.   Continue reading

Sea Marina Del Rey with Mojo

Marina Del Rey, California
It’s no secret that I love sailing. There isn’t much that makes me happier than spending an afternoon on the ocean with my family. For the last few weeks, we’ve been living in Playa Del Rey, California and we’re within walking distance to Marina Del Rey. Watching the boats sail by brings up my happiness level tenfold but, of course, I want to be on every one of them. After looking into the sailing options from Marina Del Rey, I found Mojo Sailing. We booked an afternoon with Captain Jim and enjoyed the best part of the day from aboard Mojo.  Continue reading

Legoland Water Park the Bucket List Way

Legoland Water Park, California, USA

Legoland is our favorite park in California. We love the staff, the rides, the food, and the hotel, but we never make enough time for the water park. With so much to experience in one day, I usually feel like we need to choose between spending the whole day at the water park or the whole day in the main section. Last week, though, we found the perfect balance between the main park and the water park. Here’s how we explored Legoland Water Park the bucket list way.  Continue reading

2017 Bucket List – Coachella

Coachella

California has been a magical dreamland of wonder. When I first moved here, I had visions of beaches and palm trees but I had no idea it was such an endless world of entertainment. Sure, I was aware that it was home to movie premieres and countless celebrities, but I didn’t realize that I would attend ballets, musicals, and concerts on a regular basis. One major entertainment event that reminded on my list all this time, though,  is Coachella. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. From the best people watching in the world to world class art, Coachella offers numerous experiences to enjoy along with the music. So this year, I decided it was time to cross it off my list.  Continue reading
