Just a few days ago I went to Manitou Springs Resort and Mineral Spa in Watrous. Being so used to the cold, the mineral water felt amazing as it was so warm. At the spa I also had lunch and it was perfect since I didn’t have to change when the time came for when I wanted food. Another great part of the resort is the gift shop. At the gift shop you can buy face masks, bath salts and more. On the ride home I always like to use one of their face masks. Manitou Springs Resort and Mineral Spa really is an ideal place to go to in the winter.
I made sugar cookies last night. The recipe was from the book “The Silver Palate Cookbook.” They took a couple of hours, however they turned out really well! Photos are down below.
One of the treats I am having for Christmas is meringues. https://www.incredibleegg.org/cooking-school/eggs-baking/make-hard-meringue/ I used this recipe. Here is what they looked like while making them and then the final product.
The day after…
and swimming with Dolphins!
Iberostar Mojito is a wonderful resort in Cayo Coco, Cuba. My mom booked our flights and stay at the resort just a couple of days before we left to go there. The all inclusive resort and our flights there and back cost about $3000. The trip lasted a week and was during spring break and a few days after. Here’s some photos from my stay there!
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
Out on the streets
On my trip to Amsterdam in 2015 I stayed at the hotel Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam! The hotel was in a great location for traveling in Amsterdam. I would love to stay here again sometime. Amsterdam was so beautiful, I have some photos just below this paragraph so you can see some of my vacation photos!
During my summer in 2014 I went to Nova Scotia as I do every summer. Although this year I went to Prince Edward Island as well. Some photos and more explanations are just below.
Dalvay By the Sea
Kate Middleton and Prince William had been at this resort before I had. There was a cardboard Kate Middleton and Prince William by the entrance. It was fascinating to know that Royals from England had previously stayed were me and part of my family were. I really enjoyed being so close to the ocean as well. Here are some photos from my stay!
Our other adventures in Prince Edward Island included Anne of Green Gables close to Charlottetown and in Charlottetown. Some photos are here!
I settled into the hotel room at Hotel Due Torri and had gotten ready for the day exploring. I decided to begin the day by walking without a planned direction and within 5 minutes I arrived at the Pantheon. By the Pantheon I enjoyed some gelato.
On my first night in Rome I visited Trevi Fountain. Around Trevi Fountain was very crowded. There was a movie or commercial shooting there, however I don’t know if thats really the reason for the crowd.
On the second day (July 9, 2016) I went to Castel Sant’angelo.
Later in the day I enjoyed a Merangue at Antico Forno.
I began my third day in Rome (July 10, 2016) at Borghese Gardens.
After visiting the Borghese I went on a Viator tour of the Coliseum.
The Fourth day (July 11, 2016) was a trip to Pompeii and a climb to the top of Mount Vesuvius. I didn’t plan my outfit well, but still made it to the top of the Volcano after exploring Pompeii.
The next day (July 12, 2016) started with a Viator tour of the Vatican.
After the tour with Viator I walked around the city and found the Vittoriano.
There was a tour with Viator that was for a dinner at a family’s villa Casa Sospisio. The tour begins as a walk to the villa from a meeting point. Once you arrive at the villa there is a tour of part of the villa. One room in the villa was a theatre. Theres a part in the theatre where they discovered a ruin that was hidden by a wall before. Once you’ve been shown around the villa there is dinner. A good part to know about is that purchasing this tour helps the family keep the villa as their home.
The last day I had in Rome I visited the Trevi Fountain for the second time. It was much less crowded compared to the time I visited before.
For the rest of the last day I had in Rome I visited the Capitoline Museum and Hotel de Russie for treats.
