WHERE IN THE WORLD...
Can you guess where I am?
This statue stands right outside the main entrance to our hotel.
🇺🇸 Hello guys, I’m a full-time RVing mom of three boys 👨👩👦👦👦 We enjoy the adventurous life of exploring the USA & Canada. Follow us here on IG @bucketlistmoose and on Facebook facebook.com/bucketlistmoose 🙌
Factory tours are fun and educational outings we enjoy doing as a family. One day we decided to go to the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, California. This tour is fun for all ages, takes only ~40 minutes and it’s free!
🍬As you step inside the factory, you are greeted by large Jelly Belly jellybean character statues. You’ll immediately smell the sugary sweet scent of the delicious candy produced in this factory as you come through the main doors. Think chocolate🍫, fresh fruit & sugar. Yum! 🤤The ceilings & walls are decorated with colorful art, even the carpet has candy-print.
🏭 Guided tours start every fifteen minutes🕐 First, we were given a paper Jelly Belly factory hat to wear & a sample of candy. The hallways are filled with windows where you can look down over the machinery used to make all of the beans
🌈 It’s fun to see all of the great colors of the jellybeans move along conveyor belts in & out of the machines and different molds used to create the individual pieces of candy. Did you know that it can take up to 20 days for a single jelly bean to be created?😯
🥰 Besides watching the employees make the candy, we’ve read about interesting facts posted on the walls of the hallways, have seen amazing art made out of jellybeans & had fun with some guessing stations where you can smell the scents of different jellybeans to see if you can name that jellybean’s flavor. Our boys really enjoyed it. Near the end of the tour, we found an interactive jellybean game that we played on a digital screen🕹And the best part is saved for last – free small packages of Jelly Belly jellybeans!
🍔In case you didn’t have enough jelly beans and are still hungry, there is a café on site. It offers regular foods, like hamburgers that are shaped like jelly beans. An awesome experience overall!

Do you collect something specific when you travel? I collect tattoos. 🤣 I have tattoos from Cambridge England, Munich Germany, Springfield Missouri, St. Louis Missouri, Singapore, and now Edinburgh Scotland!
Another Paris place on my Top5 favorites: Jardin du Luxembourg. 💚
The place has such a zen feeling and I love how the typical park benches are replaced with chairs (ok, they are metal and not very comfy 😂) but they give people the liberty of moving them around and sit with friends in different setups.
Also, I liked to see many people out on the grass at picnics, reading, or just chilling with friends or by themselves. 😊
So I did the same, chilled on the grass and eating my "homemade sandwiches". Oh, the little things make life so good! 🙏😊
On my Top 5 places I liked in Paris is the famous Louvre Museum. 🔺️
The entrance is right through the Pyramid in an huge open space room bathing in natural light (I would have loved to catch the sun out in that place but it was a very cloudy day). The Palace in which the art is displayed looks amazing! The decor is jaw-dropping for an old-buildings-enthusiast like myself.
And there were some paintings 🖼 (just a few, I admit) that called out to me even as I walked in the room. I never thought about myself as a paintings lover, but I found myself almost drooling 😅 next to some.
Oh, and the Mona Lisa was pretty adorable. I don't regret staying 30 min in line to see "her".
*the joy of walking and the panic of getting lost*
Oh, the joy of walking the streets of Paris... I had a blissful smile on my face the whole time and the Sun smiled back at me everyday! 🙏🌞 I spent hours and hours walking and taking 💯s of photos, which, at some point, got me to the point of panic! 😂😬. I was 40 min out from my stay and I was using the Google Maps GPS to find my way when, all of a sudden, my battery dropped from 25% to 8% and I got the worrying sign "Charge your phone". My face expression went from 🤨 to 😱 fast! So I started walking faster and faster and in the same time looking at the map to memorize the way if my phone shuts down. Being lost in that big city was not the best idea and I was too tired to come up with good ideas to find help.
Made it back, but this got me to: Note To Self: don't forget your external battery when you use your phone non stop!🤦♀️ For sure Paris is a city to put on your walking shoes for!
*It is amazing how each time I grab some acrylics and fine art papers (like Fabriano and Arches), and my favorite scissors, something surprising happens in front of me. It will never end: the puzzling sensation when seeing how colors and forms can still produce new results. Each time will be a new visual adventure, a very enriching endeavor.* “Goldenwood trail”, 01, 02, 03, and 05, series, 2017.
