Cooking Class in Thailand

Majesty of the Sea

Majesty of the Sea couples cruise onboard the Majesty of the Sea

I recently embarked on a cruise on the Majesty of the Sea. I know you aren't going to believe this but my husband had never been on a cruise. He was a naval officer so we never planned a trip on a ship because I didn't think it would be something he would enjoy. The truth is I was wrong.  He absolutely loved the Majesty of the Sea.  I loved the time we spent together. I loved not having to worry about anything. The service on The Majesty of the Sea was second to none and the price for the cruise was very affordable. I was amazed at how much we didn't spend. We chose to not drink on the … [Read more...]

Did you know sunscreen kills? Are you using reef safe sunscreen?

Reef Safe Sunscreen at the lake

Okay okay so maybe my first question is a little dramatic but I am serious and concerned about the effect of sunscreen on aquatic life. Studies have shown that the chemicals in sunscreens are killing coral reefs around the world. All water eventually ends up in the ocean so even if you are not going to a beach anytime soon I want you to know about reef safe sunscreen. We recently went swimming at a lake. The lake had a platform out in the middle where you could jump off a diving board and go down a water slide into the lake. While we were hanging out on the platform I noticed an oily … [Read more...]

Head To The Vortex For The Best Burgers In Atlanta! Disclosure: I was provided a meal at no cost to facilitate this review, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own!   I don't know about you, but when it comes to picking a destination to visit, the food scene is a big factor. What can I say, we are a family of foodies. Which would explain why I drove 4 hours from Nashville to Atlanta for a burger. (Okay, that wasn't the only reason, I also went to see my awesome cousin and shop at Ikea, but it was still a big reason). If you have heard of The Vortex before, it might … [Read more...]

James Bond Island

James Bond Island is a fun place to visit when in Phuket Thailand

While on our trip we ventured to what is know as the James Bond Island. It is so named because the movie The Man was the Golden Gun was filmed there. The James Bond Island is located off the shores of Phuket, Thailand .   You will have to take a boat to get there. We did so as part of a tour. I would  recommend  a tour . I also wouldn't pay more then the child admission for adults. You can  haggle the price and I would do so pretend to leave there are a lot of places that sell the tours and you are going to find one somewhere. They are all the same item so get the best price. … [Read more...]

Thailand Kickboxing

Thailand Kickboxing Two fighters in the ring

What do two girls do when in Phuket, Thailand for a night out? Well, they go and watch Thai Boxing. This is also an event that is better to book prior to getting there. We chose the cheap seats since we didn’t plan to stay for long. We did however, end up staying for the entire event. We sat on the stone bleachers which as the name suggests were hard and not comfortable but it suited us fine. We bought tickets that included to cab ride to the location. We were told two girls should not walk back from there. I gather it is in a rough neighborhood. We didn’t hang out to see. The tickets, cab … [Read more...]
