Throwback Thursday: Road trip USA 2002

For this blog post, we’re going back in time a little far… 17 years to be exact. That’s when my family and I went on a road trip in the South Western USA to conclude our time living in Arizona! We saw a lot of cool things, so I decided to make a post about it! Arizona Obviously since I was seven years old at the time, I don’t remember this road trip as if it was yesterday. I will also 100% recount things in the wrong order, but the most important part is that y’all know where we went,…

We took a direct flight from Washington D.C. to San Juan and arrived somewhat early in the afternoon. We thought that because we were so early we could probably head to the beach that same day!

El Yunque Rainforest

During my vacation in Puerto Rico, my family and I took a small tour of El Yunque Rainforest, which is Puerto Rico’s national forest. The company we did the tour with, El Yunque Tours, is completely independent from the forest administration, but our guides knew a lot about the forest and its history. I found the tour and the information they gave along the way so interesting, that I decided that El Yunque deserves its own blog post! The rainforest is not far at all from where we were staying, but still we had to get up pretty early! It…
