Te Mando Saludos de Puerto Rico: ¿Donde como? (Where to eat in PR)

Happy Almost Friday! Today My Pocketful of Thoughts comes to you LIVE from Carolina, Puerto Rico.  If you read my prescription post on
Vacation you’ll recall that this year for Christmas, Daniel and I gave each other the gift of spending quality time. How is your holiday shopping going? Well I hope!

While we’re here I thought I’d share some tips!

Tip 1: Your hotel may have great places to eat within its walls, however, the price for convenience may bust your budget! DO RESEARCH! Or you can take a quick walk around the area of your hotel to see what’s in the vicinity for options. Also check to see when restaurants are open. Some are open for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our local favorite so far is Mi Casita located on Isla Verde. Great staff and authentic Puerto Rican dishes like Mami makes! Who can ask for more?

Until then,

Vacation, Can you hear it calling your name?

Yesterday I was sad.  :(  (see that’s my sad face)  I got back Sunday evening from a long weekend away in Cape May, NJ, fully rested and ready to take on the world!  I wanted to write to you, it didn’t matter what, but I wanted TO WRITE!  I got on my laptop and connected to my router and NO INTERNET ACCESS.  I was sad. But I was ready to write, how could this be?  I tried my old laptop, same thing, DSI (yes i have a DSI) same thing…So I’m here, at Panera Bread this early morning, writing.  I am excited. Awakened.  I owe it all to my little getaway weekend.  I feel rested.  I feel relaxed.  I was able to do things this weekend that I do not ever get to do.  Vacation is awesome.  I took a ton last year and because of a tight budget this year I put off even thinking of one.  BUT what was I thinking?!  I read an article last year that vacation is necessary for everyone to take, for mental and physical health.  EVERYONE.  YES YOU!  We need to take a break from our every day lives, to stop and smell the roses.  It allows us to reset, for lack  of a better term.  It allows us time to think and re-prioritize. What are the things that I’m doing that I need to stop?  What are things that I should really make time for?  Or just spending that quality time with some loved ones, delicious food and beverage, and relaxation (CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH!) is exactly what the doctor ordered.  LITERALLY.  Don’t believe me, look it up!

So anyways, I am rested after my mini vacation, and can’t wait til the next one.  In the mean time I am focused and you’ll be seeing me more often than not :)  Although I promise you that I will occasionally fall off the focus wagon as that is on my list of things to work on this year and I haven’t gotten that far on my list :)

What?  You say you can’t afford a vacation?  Well you came to the right place.  I will share my travel tips.  I also get deals from a variety of different companies and I’ll be posting the ones I see that are worth the money.  OR have a place in particular, send me an email :)  Can you here Vacation calling your name?  I hear it, LOUD AND CLEAR.  I’m coming Vacation, I’ll see you soon!

Until Then,
