What exciting news!  I was thrilled to find out on Twitter that Elizabeth from Elizabeth and Dale Abroad nominated me for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!  Thanks so much, Elizabeth!! This award is an opportunity for female travel bloggers to recognize each other, support each other, and get to know each other better.  I loved reading Elizabeth's answers, and it's been really fun to think about my own!  Plus, it's just really heartwarming to be so welcomed and supported by the female travel blogging community even though I'm so new to it!  You all are the best!

Check into our next casa, then explore. Have already heard from multiple sources that Santa Maria, the neighboring beach, is better, so head that way.

No idea what to do or what might happen, or how to find out what to do or what might happen. Repeatedly replay the interaction with the immigration officer in my hea
