Mugshot Monday - “American Homestead Spring Coffee Mug” by Currier And Ives with Morning Glory Signature Blend by Peace Coffee
This weekend we took the boys to Baraboo, Wisconsin to do some snowboarding & downhill skiing at Devil’s Head Resort and rented a VRBO called “Grandma’s Cottage”.
It was 10 mins from the ski hill and oh man did this place totally live up to it’s name!
Check out this vintage mug I used all weekend for my morning coffee: A delightful Currier & Ives “Spring” mug.
It matched the living room decor -- even the couch and love seat. So amazing.
The mug made me smile. Maybe it was a good reminder that we’ll get past these temperatures that barely made it above 0ºF!
The boys had a blast on the slopes despite the frigid temperatures and it was a super fun get-away from the cities. Cheers! 💥 ☕️ 😀

Tips on Traveling to Kauai, Hawaii During Covid (Plus photography)
Tips on Traveling to Kauai, Hawaii During Covid (Plus photography)
All photos snapped by LMSattler Kauai is one of my “happy places”! Unique topography juxtaposed with a “tropical attitude” makes this Hawaiian island a true treasure. I have traveled to Hawaii several times and prefer Kauai to the other islands because of the “old world” feel it exudes. However, traveling during the Covid pandemic made this trip much more challenging than any of the previous.…

Short-term rental platform Vrbo is not following Airbnb’s lead in canceling and refunding all stays in the Washington, DC, area for the week of the Inauguration. More troubling, it isn’t canceling or restricting guests known to have been involved in the siege on the US Capitol on Jan. 6.
After being contacted by BuzzFeed News, Vrbo issued a blog post Friday afternoon, stating, “If you mistreat people, there's no space for you on Vrbo. We reserve the right to remove anyone from our marketplace who violates these principles, and we are encouraging hosts to cancel bookings during this time if they believe a guest intends to violate these policies.”
This announcement leaves the onus on property owners to screen guests who might be members of a hate group and planning to commit more violence in DC, or who were involved in the violent attack on the Capitol. Local officials have urged people not to come from out of town to the inauguration.
Airbnb announced this week that it would cancel and refund all reservations for the inauguration, as well as block any new ones in the area for those days. The announcement said, “Airbnb will cancel reservations in the Washington, D.C. metro area during the Inauguration week. Additionally, we will prevent any new reservations in the Washington, D.C. area from being booked during that time by blocking such reservations.”
Ben Arfmann, a video game writer for Marvel Comics, had planned to travel from Pasadena, California, to attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. He booked three nights in an apartment on Vrbo for a total of $900.
However, after the events at the Capitol, he changed his mind. “Friends and family reached out and told me, ‘You can’t go to DC, it’s crazy, it’s not going to be safe,’” he told BuzzFeed News. When he reached out to Vrbo to ask for a refund, the company told him that it was up to the property owner to refund him. The owner refused, citing her 30-day cancellation policy.
Arfmann was resigned to losing the money until he saw Airbnb’s announcement. He thought Vrbo should do the same. He started tweeting about it, and eventually a representative from the company called him. According to Arfmann, the Vrbo official told him, “Unlike AirBNB, Vrbo will not be discriminating against people's political beliefs.”
Except Airbnb is not discriminating against people’s political beliefs, it canceled everything, all DC rentals across the board. Vrbo is too fucking greedy -- or maybe not doing well enough financially -- to do the same thing.

12 Useful Cozumel Tips & Advice
Tumblr media
Here are our 12 Useful Cozumel Tips & Advice
Headed to Cozumel on your holiday and searching for tips on how to have the best time? First, recognize that you’re likely to have a lot of fun. But visiting a different country can lead to many questions about what to expect. Below, we’ve rounded up our top tips and recommendations for visiting Cozumel. Covering everything from money, getting around, and safety, these are pointers that you don’t want to go without.
Your Phone may perform in Cozumel
There’s an excellent chance that your cell phone will work on Cozumel with no added charge. Even if it doesn’t, you can usually include service in Mexico for as little as $10. Over the past several years, the fight for your cell phone business has forced many carriers to provide new advantages. One of those is service in Mexico and Canada. Many plans now have Mexico included in the plan for no extra charge. There’s no need to get a new SIM card or jump through hoops. And if it’s not included? Call your provider and tell them you’re headed to Mexico. They can advise you on the opportunities you have for service in Cozumel. Often you can obtain service extended to the country for about $10 per day.
No Need to Worry About Pesos
There are advantages of using pesos to acquire things in Mexico, but in the tourist hotspots like Cozumel, they accept US dollars. In fact, bills from restaurants will appear with a price that’s both in pesos and dollars and you can determine which way you want to pay. You will usually pay less using pesos because of the exchange rate levied by the establishment. Still, if you don’t choose to change money over, you don’t have to. Keep in mind you might get change for dollars back in pesos.
Sunscreen, you must wear it
Even if you come to Cozumel from a tropical place, like Florida, you nevertheless aren’t equipped for the sun at lower latitudes. Here the sun’s rays are more direct, meaning that you get their impact more than you would back home. Use sunscreen and reapply often. This isn’t so much for health reasons, but for your enjoyment of your vacation. You don’t want to be inside the room because you got burned on your first day at the beach.
Use the number 20 to Figure Exchange Rates
Need to know how much something is in dollars? Just take the price in pesos and divide it by 20 to get a rough estimate. Likewise, you can use 20 times the number of dollars to figure out how much it is in pesos. While the exchange rate will not be 20 pesos to the dollar, it’s close enough to give you an idea. Take something that costs 1000 pesos. Divide by 20, and you know it’s about $50 in U.S. currency. Likewise, if you want to know how much something is in pesos that cost $30 US, then multiply it by 20 to see that it would cost 600 pesos.
Know the Time to Travel
You can travel to Cozumel year-round, but you have choices. Summers are sultry, with frequent thunderstorms that can blow up seemingly out of nowhere. June through November is hurricane season, and yes, hurricanes can affect this area of the tropics. Many people prefer to visit in the winter, but this is the prime season where rates rise because of snowbirds looking for a warm place to visit. That’s why we don’t think there is a perfect time to visit Cozumel, but just be aware of the general outlook for the time you plan to visit. Our favorite time on the island is around April or May when it’s warm and prices are lower.
Bank ATMs get you the Best Exchange Rate
The two ways to get the most favorable exchange rate are to use a credit card, or to take cash out at a Bank’s ATM. We recognize that many people may not be comfortable using their cards abroad for the risk of identity theft or skimming. If you plan to use cash, you’re better off using a bank’s ATM than trying to change money at another exchange booth. You’ll get a favorable rate that’s as close to the real exchange rate as you’ll find.
Prepare for Propinas
If you’re Spanish isn’t great, a propina is a tip. By the time you leave Cozumel, you’ll know the word. As a tourist destination, people’s incomes rely on the cash that tourism brings. That means just about everyone will expect a tip. That includes drivers, waiters, maids, and whoever else provides any direct service. How much to tip depends on you, but figure about 10% of the bill or a few bucks a day for things like housekeeping.
Be Ready to Negotiate With Vendors
Find a souvenir you like? In most shops, that price on the item is a launching point for negotiations. You’ll get a feel for where you can barter and where you can’t. Places that seem like the stores you’d find back home have set prices. But smaller vendors you can negotiate with. The rule of thumb is to offer about half of what they list the item at and then work yourself up from there. Don’t feel comfortable negotiating? You’re on vacation. You shouldn’t do anything you don’t want to do. It’s ok to pay full price, just know that it might not be the best deal.
Make Sure You’re Drinking Purified Water
Even today it’s an excellent idea to drink purified water when you are visiting Cozumel. Restaurants go out of their way to either serve you a bottle or let you know that they purify the water. Still, if you aren’t sure, it doesn’t hurt to ask if they purify the drinking water. A little prevention by being vigilant and making sure can benefit you save a lot of stomachaches later on.
Prepare for the Hawks at the Airport
Maybe it’s a coarse description of people just seeking to make an income, but it can feel you’re a mouse walking out of the Cozumel airport with hawks circling you. That’s a nickname for all the people selling timeshares. The delightful news is that they will take no for an answer, but they will make you say no again and again. Let them know you aren’t interested in their services with a courteous “no, gracias” and they will move on to the next person.
You Might Win the Prize in the Airport
Ok, it’s not a real prize, so don’t get your hopes up. Passing through customs, each person will walk up to a red and green light. Hit a button and hope that you get green. If you get the green light, then you’ll pass right on through the sliding doors and leave the airport. They stop those who get the red light and inspect their bags. Don’t think you did anything wrong or look suspicious. It’s a random draw on who gets green and who gets red.
Keep Your Wits About You While Having a Good Time
We know Cozumel for being laid back. Go out, have a splendid time, and make some friends. But it’s important to keep your wits about you. Remember, you are in a foreign country and while it might seem Americanized; it binds you to follow the rules and laws of Mexico. Don’t think it is a “Disney” experience where nothing bad can happen or that the laws don’t apply.

Water's Edge Vacation Rental
Water’s Edge Vacation Rental
I had the privilege to stay for the weekend at this waterfront property on Chincoteague for a weekend recently. This house was so much bigger than I thought it was going to be honestly. Nothing will top having the water from every vantage point in this home. Literally everywhere you looked, you could see water. There were pros and cons (as with everything) but some of the cons I actually thought…

Why Day Trip to Playa del Carmen
Tumblr media
It’s painful to accept that this charming seaside city was full of impenetrable jungle brush only a few brief decades ago. Just a handful of fishermen and their families occupied the secluded inland.
In the 1970s, with the reputation of Cozumel growing, visitors widened their sphere of exploration. They constructed ferry docks to welcome guests from the Cozumel cruise port. Construction started with a few modest inns and beach bars until the early 1990s when the expansion and real estate sectors exploded.
All dirt trails are paved in Playa now. Neighborhoods are full of schools, clinics, shopping plazas, cinemas, and galleries. Hundreds of thousands of visitors arrive to spend a few days relaxing in Playa del Carmen.
Location Location Location
For starters, it’s only 45 minutes on the Cozumel ferry. It has likewise picked up a reputation over the years for being a nerve center for wild spring breakers. While Playa receives its adequate proportion of party people, it has nevertheless upheld its picturesque fishing village vibe. Most of the activity that tourists seek happens in the vibrant neighborhoods on the eastern sector of the federal highway. Here you approach the white sands, lively dining, shopping, and entertainment district by foot when visiting Playa’s east side.
Safe, International Community
Playa del Carmen is an excellent retirement haven and snowbird destination. Playa draws ex-pats to the safety and modest cost of living. Friendly residents from France, Italy, the United States, and Canada make up the greatest ex-pat groups and it is easy to establish long-lasting friendships with people from all over the world.
Impressive Gastronomy Scene
Playa del Carmen has a wealth of options for dining. There is no scarcity of unprecedented international or traditional Mexican cuisine. Foodies will rejoice in eating their way through menus of savory casual and upscale fare. Those who enjoy great food will rejoice in satisfying their taste buds in Playa del Carmen.
Breathtaking Beaches
The beaches in Playa del Carmen are broad and stretch along the entire segment of the city. It is challenging for beach bums to take off after a fascinating day of splashing in the surf. Since the shores of Playa border the Caribbean Sea, the water is almost always crystal clear, and the color is striking shades of aquamarine.
If you prefer to park yourself on the beach with a cocktail or encounter the views from a closer viewpoint, there are so many interesting options in either case. Chic beach clubs for the hipster traveler, watering spots for fun-loving snowbirds, and laid-back ocean side eateries the entire family will enjoy all along the palm-fringed coastline. Ocean enthusiasts can soak their feet in the turquoise waters via paddleboard, parasail, or even a catamaran. Every day is extraordinary when spent outdoors under the brilliant Mexican sun.
Electric Nightlife
If the nightlife in Cozumel is a little lame, you might pick up the pace and in Playa del Carmen’s buzzing nightclub zone on Calle 12. It’s tough to know which day of the week it is because the disco clubs and bars come alive every night in Playa del Carmen. At Coco Bongo, exciting performers reach the stage, DJs spin all night, and a charismatic staff creates such an entertaining environment that you never wish to leave. Mandala just down the avenue is a 3-level club with a trendy roof balcony, walls of video screens, and a local DJ who plays until the sun comes up. For the finest underground disco in town, Santanera is the place. La Santanera embodies the nightlife scene of Playa del Carmen with its sensuous, tropical atmosphere.
Let us not forget about the Shopping
Times sure have evolved over the past 15 years. There was a time a while ago where I could not get clothes to fit me here in Mexico. Playa del Carmen now includes everything a big man requires. With Old Navy and American Eagle Outfitters a short ferry ride away, I can no longer complain. There is also the “Ultimate Man’s Store” now convenient to us – HomeDepot. That alone will get me off my recliner.
If you have not yet had the chance to visit the Playa del Carmen, it’s time to experience all the elegance and magic for yourselves! There’s something for everyone after a brief ferry ride.
