I Left My Heart In Puerto Rico…

But I’m going back to get it!

If you haven’t been to Puerto Rico, what are you waiting for? It’s beautiful all year long! Just pick a time and go!

The locals are warm and welcoming!

Special thanks to Tamara and Yari for a great time at Cafe’ la Plage
Met some great folks in PR!

One of the ladies I met put me on to a site called Couch Surfers. It’s the world’s largest traveling community. You can host a group traveling or travel and be hosted by a group in different parts of the world. Check it out!

I Took My Afro: To El Yunque Rain Forest

What an exhilarating experience!

Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday I relaxed after a fun and exhilarating weekend!

Friday morning, friends and I hiked through the El Yunque (yoon-kay) rain forrest in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. El Yunque is the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Forest system.  It’s really beautiful. To hike to the top would have taken 4 hours, so we opted to just see the waterfall, which was a 35 minute hike each way. Though tiring and at times a challenge, we made it to the top! I’m so proud of us! I also discovered that I really enjoy hiking; it’s a great workout and a great way to see the beauty in nature all around us.
