Pic(k) of the Week: Life on the Edge - Cliffs of Moher

Ahhh it feels nice to be back on track with posts. I really did miss writing, plus I actually have some substantial stuff to write about now.  You guys will just have to put up with some super-amazing-awesome Expedition Evans tales.

My pic(k)s of the week this week are from beautiful Ireland. We visited the Cliffs of Moher on Tuesday, April19th - straight from the Shannon, Ireland airport (yeah, we're hard core like that). The scenery was breathtaking and we got some great shots. 

Unfortunately the photos just don't do it justice. I did manage to wear appropriate shoes that day, and also managed to NOT embarrass myself too much. Although I do believe there is footage of me running through the green fields with the Cliffs behind me - think Sound of Music meets Ugly Betty (I was wearing my glasses that day). I'll spare you guys the horror of seeing that. I will share these with you though: 

Pretty cool, right? Courtesy J-Mills for the pic(k)s. 

Have a good weekend everyone!

What's the deal-io: Costa Rican Inspirations/Aspirations

There's nothing like coming back home after a trip and being bitten by the "travel bug". Immediately upon exiting the flight the other day, we all came to the realization that being home after a great trip was not going to cut it. I always have these crazy ideas about planning future trips whenever I get home from one. After we got home from Florida last year I had this crazy idea of traveling to Japan to see Tokyo Disneyland (I know). 

My deal-io for this week is from my trusty travel-partner-in-crime - you guessed it, Travelzoo. Anybody up for some Costa Rican hot springs? For roughly $700 a person including airfare from NYC, accommodations, car rental, and breakfast you can explore this tropical paradise, and get a killer tan. *Sigh*...............A girl can only dream.....

Ya tu sabes ;)

Jaunt Across the Pond

Hello my dears! Oh I know how much you have missed me, and I'm happy to tell you that I AM BACK! Where was I, you might ask? Well, Bud and I just returned from our "jaunt" to England, Wales, and Ireland. Or, as we like to call it, THE MOTHERLAND since we both have some roots in both countries (yes I am that dramatic and that much of a nerd). 

So of course you know what that means - a series of fun and informative blogs highlighting what we saw during our 12 day trip. I'll pace myself with all of the details, but we really had an amazing time. Not only did we share a lot of laughs with our fellow travelers, the Miller Fam, we took the cities/towns of Manchester, Chester, Liverpool, London, Dublin, Dingle (LOL), Cork, and Adare by storm. Somehow I managed to stumble, trip, and wear the most uncomfortable shoes ever, yet maintain an awkward grace throughout the whole time. I like to pride myself in that. It wouldn't be the same Expedition Evans experience without some awkward and embarrassing stories - and pic(ks) to boot.

I won't regale you with the details on how this trip came to be, but with much help from the Miller Fam and Travel Zoo's hot deals (I post these deals for a reason, kids), it really was an unforgettable trip. So, I'd like to use the phrase that I'm "back and better than ever", but this is a classy blog and I don't roll with clichés. I will say though, it is nice to be back States-side, but a little piece of my heart will always be across the pond........(yeah, that's not cliché at all).

Crazy Evans Weekend

My friends! How I have missed you! Shame on me, it has been awhile since I've posted. I am firm believer in "no excuses" but things have been quite crazy around here.

In the past few weeks I've battled sickness, work stress and all the while managed to help Commuter Justine get down the aisle (congratulations Justine and Joey!!!!!!). More pictures to come on that.

So my friends, this is a little note that I *promise* that there will be some "good stuff" coming your way. Think of your favorite TV show - you know when the take those super long hiatus' and you are left with re-runs and it's like super annoying? Well, I hate to say it, but I'm doing that to you guys LOL.

Stay tuned everyone!

Pic(k)s of the Week: From Ground Zero Up

Happy Friday everyone!

Just following up from Wednesday's post with some pic(k)s of the Millennium Hilton Hotel. We stayed on the 29th floor of the hotel, with a sick view of the work being done at Ground Zero: 

Here are the pic(k)s from the pool area:
