A Day in Grand Haven Besides Holland, Grand Haven has one of my favorite beaches in Michigan. So, that is exactly where I went for the day! It is only a 40 minute drive from Grand Rapids making it an easy day trip or half-day trip. Just like Holland, the Grand Haven beach is in […]

One of my favorite activities is hiking. Unfortunately, Tampa Bay isn’t exactly known for great hiking trails. So, while in Michigan, I jumped at the chance to break out my hiking boots. Well… not exactly boots. More like Chacos (sandals). Western Michigan provides unique hiking trails combining dirt paths and sand trails. Sometimes you climb up dunes […]

A Day in Grand Rapids We planned on getting up early and going out for a nice breakfast before Nisheet headed to work. Who am I kidding? That didn’t happen. Not even close. I planned on spending the day in Grand Rapids. I wouldn’t need the car, so I took my time getting ready while […]

Traveling to Michigan Nisheet had to travel to Michigan last week for work and I tagged along.

I missed the amazing beer, good food, and salt-free shark-free beaches. I […]

  Best Bites Around the World: As you have probably realized by now, Nisheet and I love food. But, more than that, we love snack foods. Sure, sitting down to a 3 course meal down a secret alley in Paris can be a heaven on earth, but snack foods are what we are best at. […]

Lake Michigan Circle Tour The very first trip Nisheet and I took together was the Lake Michigan Circle Tour (it’s an actual thing, highway signs and all). It was a very spontaneous trip. We worked for the same company at the time, and it was the day before Labor Day Weekend. Neither of us had […]

  Michigan’s Best 15 If you had asked me about Michigan 10 years ago, automobiles, manufacturing, and a declining economy would have been the first few things to pop in my head. Not to mention all that government bail out stuff.  I didn’t know anyone that lived in Michigan let alone vacationed there. But then things […]
