Happy Fat Tuesday!!!

Posted by Brad Maniscalco on 2/17/2015


Fat Tuesday marks the last day to eat rich and spoil yourself before the Lenten season begins. Therefore, today needs to make up for 40 days and 40 nights of a lack of meat and partying.  With that being said, our New Orleans trip has commenced. 

Below are some little known facts of the festive celebration.

Dare to Head Off the Beaten Path This Year.

What is your definition of vacation? 

Most of us think a sandy beach on a resort with all inclusive drinks and food. Basking in the sun with other tourists nearby. Nights are often filled with seafood dinners and resort entertainment by the ocean. Although there is nothing wrong with aforementioned "getaway" we generally like to think of the word vacation quite differently. Our vacations consist of a single piece of luggage and several check points along the way and much improvisation between. 

For example, many have been to Puerto Rico, yet few travel away from the main city of San Juan. Recently a friend and I took a trip to Puerto Rico and planned on spending only a day in the tourist-filled capital. We rented a car and with nothing more than a fold out map, we hit the backroads of the 51st state. We were able to take a "vacation" few have experienced. Witnessing some of the most beautiful and secluded beaches we have ever seen. Although a little more risky and unknown, we choose the UN-beaten path every time.

As another year begins, we have all made resolutions. Some of us have resolved to be more kind while some have resolved to get into shape.  Whatever our resolution, unfortunately we will probably enter 2016 without it being fulfilled.
