Back from the Sunshine & An Interview with To and From Magazine!

We are back from 10 wonderful days in the sun! Our first few days were spent pigging out on grilled 'frango piri-piri' and sangria in Lisbon, Portugal, with my twin sis and her hubby then we island-hopped our way down the Croatian coastline--which was absolutely incredible. Lisbon quickly climbed our list as one of the absolute best cities in Europe and we almost instantly agreed that Croatia was the most beautiful place we've ever been--seriously

I'm excited to post some pretty pics in the next few weeks and cannot speak more highly of Lisbon and Croatia! 

But I'm also really excited for another reason--a few weeks ago I had the honor of being interviewed by Diana over at To & From Mag! I was totally floored when she asked to feature Let's Be Adventurers :).

Check out the article hereThanks Diana!

Here are a few iPhone pics from our sunny days in Lisbon and Croatia...
