Traveling Abroad? Here’s what to do first.

For our honeymoon, we are going to St. Lucia. That requires a passport and tickets. If you go to other places, you might need shots and a few other things, but if you're like us, you might be starting the process from scratch. I've done some research recently, so I thought I'd share what I know.

A Truly Romantic Honeymoon on a Small Budget

When we were planning our honeymoon, we looked up budget honeymoon locations. We kept getting "under $5000 honeymoons", not exactly what I would call a budget. That's why I made this, more idea generator, less exact list of places to go. These are general ideas, made to get you thinking about how and what you could do to make a romantic getaway on a budget. I have no exact numbers or sites, just ideas and past experiences to draw from. Read through each idea, think if it could work for you and how you could make it happen.

Top 5 Budget Friendly Places You Have to Eat in Portland, Oregon!

This is the second in what might be a few posting on our adventure to Portland. Previous to this you can see our post on family friendly adventures. This will be about all the places we recommend you eat. Next, I plan on writing our adventure, the fun stories and pictures from our trip. Who doesn't like food? It seems like it would be a boring life to live. I love to try new foods, MadMan likes to call me a foodie, I just say I like to try new things, food included. For that reason, Portland was awesome. We tried some local, some western chains (some chain stores we'd never heard of before), and some other. We've listed the one's we've tried, the good ones. If we go back When we go back, we will add to this list, maybe even with some date night budget places.
