So, you want me to shoplift it...?

Ah, the joys of being mildly unreasonable.

I found a neat little shop with some great shirts, suit jackets, and gloves that all had a nice design and fit me perfectly. I wasn't going in to get a lot of stuff, but their pieces were really cut just perfectly right for me. I picked a lot of stuff out to buy.

When I was checking out shirts and jackets, I wanted to see how one would look with a tie. I picked up a nice skinny black tie off a display mannequin and put it on. Verdict: The shirt looks good with a tie. But hey, this tie is pretty nice too. But there's no price on it. Hmm...

I go to check out, and the girl explains to me that the tie is only for sale with a particular shirt - it comes with that shirt. That shirt, however, is ugly and expensive. They don't sell the tie standalone.

She keeps trying to take it from me and put it back on the mannequin. I say, "No. Look, I want the tie. How much for it?"

Puerto Rican Paradise

On Imported Blog

With a travel list as long as mine and a mindset to cross each destination off one-by-one, I never thought I visit a place I never wanted to leave. I traveled to Puerto Rico in April with my boyfriend and instantly fell in love. The locals were extremely friendly, the culture is so interesting, and the sounds of the Coqui frogs at night is simply music to my ears.

I returned to this precious land in October with my Mom to celebrate my birthday. This time around, I stayed in Isla Verde, which is 15 minutes away from Old San Juan. My last stay was in Rio Grande, which was 45 minutes from San Juan and an $80 cab ride to Old San Juan. Yikes! I wanted this trip to be even more memorable than the last, so a trip to Culebra and Culebrita - two islands right outside of Puerto Rico - had to happen. It is said that Culebra has the best beach in Puerto Rico.

Booking a trip to Culebra and Culebrita is something one should consider when traveling to Puerto Rico. I highly recommend booking at the excursion offices located in your hotel because it will save you a few bucks. This particular package included snorkeling, and was appropriate for swimmers and non-swimmers. Non-swimmers can enjoy the boat ride to each stop, food, drinks, reggae music and the amazing views. However, if you are daredevil like me, get a life vest and hop in that water!! Life is too short not to overcome our fears.

While the second stop, Culebrita isn't much of a snorkeling site, we still enjoyed the beach. Since most boats are too big to get close to shore, you will have to swim your way over. The life guards on the boats are nice enough to swim with you there and back.
