Current Timezone: Island Time

While I don't think the slow pace of island time is anything I could ever get used to, it sure is relaxing for a few days :) and it looks like we couldn't have picked a better time to go! Look at what my family back at home woke up to vs what I woke up to!

time for island time yet?

A buddy of mine whom we're meeting down in Grenada posted a few pictures up on Facebook and I can't help but share! I highly suggest playing the below song by the second most famous beach bum in the world in the background while you close your eyes and imagine yourself soaking up the sun ....

The only thing standing between me and a Caribbean escape is another 90 minutes of work.

Oh and packing. Always packing to be done.

MIA with no trip to blame

Eiks, it's been a second hasn't it. I wish I could blame being holed up in the amazon somewhere without any access to internet but I don't have a good excuse. 

What would be a cool excuse would be that I've been living it up at SXSW, though I think that requires tweeting and instagramming your every move (I'm halfway there!) so in the end that's a bad excuse too! But it did get me thinking that I really wanna go to SXSW some day. And someday soon when I can still pull off the too cool for school hipster look and not look terribly out of place at the industry parties (because yes, I will obviously be invited).

Future Mr A & I performing with our pet wolf

I feel like I'm always saying, 'Oh! I've always dreamed of going/doing _____' so it's about time I started keeping track so the next time Mr A say's hey we need to use miles/hotel points before they expire I have something to say!

PS next time I go MIA, you can stay in touch with me via insty or twitter

Grenada > Snowquestration

Water cooler convos this week we're all about the snowquester (or Saturn as the NWS is calling it). The anticipation of 5-10" brought me down from my Grenada daydreams back to a cold reality (no fair, didn't I just get back from Moscow!?).

Alas, DC has yet to really get anything but rain. So back to Grenada daydreams I go!

Grand Anse Beach, the stuff day dreams are made of
Luckily Going to a Caribbean paradise doesn't require much planning beyond which bikini and sundress to bring (answer: all of them).

#FriFotos [3/1/13]

Wowza, March already? This week's #FriFotos theme is trees which made me immediately think of Bali! I couldn't pick just one photo so here are some of my favorite lush Bali snapshots

Sacred Monkey Forest

An honorable tree mention to this tree (errr vines that took over a tree) in Peru
