San Juan, Puerto Rico

November 27, 2018

Today John and I took a taxi into Old San Juan, and we walked around a bit. We decided to grab a drink at this place called El Asador Restaurant. While we were there, the bartender gave us a taste of the mushroom risotto, and we were blown away by it, so we decided to have lunch there. We ordered the shrimp risotto and Puerto Rican style pork chops with rice and beans. The entire experience was great. I highly recommend going there. 

The weird Chucky doll was on someones luggage cart so I took a picture of it.

St. Petersburg, Florida

October 26, 2018 

Today we decided to take a drive to St. Petersburg to visit a friend of ours.

If you are ever in St. Pete’s make sure you stop and grab a bite to eat at Fresco’s Waterfront Bistro. The food and atmosphere are excellent. Make sure you tell David (The owner) John and Maria Selloni sent you!

Next time you see a Banyan Tree you know what you need to do!

Charleston, South Carolina

September 3, 2018 – September 6, 2018

Our first stop on the tourist list of Charleston was the Historic Middleton Place which has become one of South Carolina’s most enduring icons. It was pretty impressive. I would definitely recommend a visit there.

The next thing we decided to check out while in town was the Charleston Tea Plantation. On the way, we decided to check out the Angel Oak Tree which was truly impressive. The tea plantation was interesting I never knew so much went into making tea.

The last stop was Patriots Point we got to see the inside of a destroyer and a submarine.
