Brule River Barn Wedding

Today I visited the Brule River Barn's open house located in Brule, WI. I met the owner, Jill Clemmer on arrival as she told me the story of how they renovated this barn for their daughter's dream wedding and have continued making dream barn weddings for so many others. They went from remodeling their barn to adding small buildings into the wedding options and finally turning their home into a rental place for 10-12 people. Great for a wedding party to relax after the wedding as well. They have so many different options from the Cottage, the Milkhouse, the Wedding Tree, the Summer Kitchen, the House & the Barn. It's a destination wedding barn that is a must see! The Honeymoon Cottage For

Sandals Barbados 2015

Our stay at Sandals Barbados Resort in May, 2015 As most of my close friends and family knows, April or May is our vacation time for us. This is our time to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my birthday. We always try to go to a new destination just to try something new. This year we went to Barbados and stayed at Sandals Barbados. This was our first time on vacation at a Sandals Resort. For those of you who have already stayed at Sandals will completely understand my WOW expressions. We were unsure of how busy the airport would be so we booked the Barbados Fast Track upon arrival. We were greeted by a Bajan who was holding a sign with our names on it. She was so sweet and spoke

Scuba Diving in Barbados with Sandals Resorts

Sandals Barbados Aqua Center Diving with Sandals Aqua Center crew was a blast. They were a great crew & always making sure that safety came first. The dive boat isn't at the beach area like most resorts. Because of their strong waves, they don't have a dock on location. The location is about a 20 minutes away. It's a nice ride. You will register with the Aqua Center near the swim up pool area and then from there you can get your times of diving set up. You will meet in the lobby and from there be transported to the Aqua Center dive shop and dive boat. Sandals owns their fleets that are used for diving and snorkeling so you can bet they are top of the line boats. There aren't any large f

THERE ARE LOT'S OF DIFFERENT THINGS ABOUT CUBA THAT MAKES PEOPLE WANT TO FLOCK TO THEIR COUNTRY AND WITH THE RICH CULTURE & HISTORY, WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO TRAVEL THERE.
