Amalfi Coast

Two trains and one crazy cab ride we arrived at the Amalfi coast.  The train ticket cost 8 euro.  Getting someone to help us figure out how to buy the train ticket cost us 15 euro. Crazy taxi ride was 50 euro.  Laughing the whole taxi ride because our driver was a little nuts (and … Continue reading

Colosseum Day, Rome

This was by far my favorite day.  We got up early to visit the Colosseum.  This was built 2000 years ago for the people of Rome to enjoy the “games”.  It was big enough to seat 15,000 people.  The first game of the day was all sorts of different animals (elephants, lions, tigers, panthers, etc) … Continue reading

Vatican Day, Rome

Oh dear God…  Day 2 was spent at the Vatican City.  We were able to see the Vatican museum, St. Peter’s Church and the Sistine Chapel (Michelanglo’s painted ceiling).  We could have done it in 30 minutes but had to stay with the tour that took 3 hours. Ryan wanted to kill me and leave. … Continue reading

Rome Day 1

Our hotel is a small bed and breakfast 2 minutes from the Pantheon.  Super great with updated bathrooms (which I guess is a rarity in  Rome).  Ryan and I are still trying to figure out how to use a bidet. Offering up different suggestions after a bottle of wine with dinner has been our greatest … Continue reading

The Wedding

Three days of events.  Fun and totally exhausting.  I need some serious social recovery time.

Welcome Liberty Sweetland Jeffers

Costa Rica April 2012

Our first big vacation just the two of us and my 34th birthday. So we zip lined 660 feet in the air at 35 mph and that wasn’t the adventurous part.  The true adventure was driving 350 miles on the horribly unmarked roads in shoe box car in a third world country.  It might have … Continue reading

Kauai January 2012

What a great couple of weeks in Kauai!!  Lots of great home cooked meals, laughs and amazing whale watching right from our back yard.  Jen was 4 months pregnant with baby Libby.  Our last family vacation as kid-less, free spirits. This was Ryan’s first introduction to the Jeffers gang.  Ryan gets major props for his … Continue reading
