Adventures in Film: Puerto Rico

In Adventure Life, Creative Life by Jenn0 Comments

I’ve been to Puerto Rico four times since 2011, which might make it my most traveled destination besides Science Guy’s hometown of Louisville. We boarded our honeymoon cruise from San Juan two summers ago and also went there for our first big vacation together  back in 2014. So it’s safe …

Acting Out

In Adventure Life by Jenn0 Comments

I was a wannabe theater nerd in high school, which means I wasn’t even cool enough to be a real theater nerd. Let that sink in for a bit. Confession is good for the soul, kids. At my high school, the theater department was populated by a vaguely edgy/racy band of bohemians …

Reflections on Travel: Jamaica 2012

In Adventure Life by Jenn0 Comments

One of the things I miss most (and will probably continue to miss for a long time) is the ease of traveling sans baby. Because it is cold and evil outside and because I probably won’t be traveling anywhere fun anytime soon and because I’m *finally* backing up the last …

I’m in a Float…Spa

In Adventure Life by Jenn0 Comments

About two months after Fire Monkey’s debut, Science Guy and I decided it would be fun to try floating. Therefore we finally did a few weeks shy of his four-month birthday, but who’s counting? New parents can never have too much relaxation, we figured, so we packed Fire Monkey off …

Week 21…Reflections on Travel

In Adventure Life, Mom Life by Jenn0 Comments

We spent this week in Arizona taking a somewhat spontaneous babymoon. This makes us sound way fancier than we actually are, believe me. I had photographed a friend’s wedding in Michigan this summer and in lieu of my standard fee, her mom gave us a stay through her vacation timeshare. …

A rather extreme example of bad impulse control

To break up the stream of reflective, somewhat emo posts about the end of school…I went skydiving yesterday! If you don’t already know, I do not like roller coasters. Hate is maybe a strong word, but I really do not enjoy them. I do not find the fluctuating G-forces fun, …

Castillo San Felipe del Morro

In Adventure Life by Jenn0 Comments

El Morro and Castillo de San Cristobal are sort of the must-see destinations in Old San Juan, so we high-tailed it to El Morro after touring the Bacardi factory. If you’re not too deep into Spanish colonial history, it can be done in about an hour, hour and a half. There’s lots …

Casa Bacardi Distillery Tour

In Adventure Life by Jenn1 Comment

After the first two days at Vieques and El Yunque we took a day off to tidy up the apartment, hang out at the beach, and generally decompress and get some much-needed rest. The following day we went to Casa Bacardi Distillery. First we took a bus to Old San Juan …

El Yunque

In Adventure Life by Jenn1 Comment

The second day of our trip was significantly less crazy-making than the first, though still pretty physically taxing. We slept in at the Sea Gate Hotel until 9:00 (which is pretty unheard of for me), but not before several roosters crowed at exactly 6:00am. Still in a sleepy fog, I …
