My Favourite Photos in New York City

Weve visited New York City twice now. Once in the fall of 2015, and again in the fall of 2016. We quickly fell in love with the city, and made it a mission to see as much of it as we could.

BROchetas Restaurant Review, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

I had been hearing about BROchetas since our last visit to Playa in early 2016. We finally made it in for lunch last week, and it became a fast favourite- especially for Seth! So much so that he convinced me to go back 2 more times that same week! Brocheta translates to ‘skewer’ in English, so it’s not hard to guess what we’ll be having for lunch!  I noticed they had a special that included 2…

Patriots Point

Today we went to patriots point. Its a war museum in Charleston, South Carolina. It has a Vietnam war reenactment and a WW2 submarine, destroyer and an aircraft carrier. My favourite part was the aircraft carrier, the USS Yorktown, because its the most unique ship I’ve ever seen! On a normal ship every thing is centered but on an aircraft carrier the bridge is on the right side to allow planes to take off and…
