• Beaches Ocho Rios – A Family Vacation in Paradise

    Hello fellow travelers! My family and I recently returned from an incredible stay at Beaches Ocho Rios in Jamaica. If you have never experienced an All-Inclusive Resort, you are truly missing out. I compare it to a cruise on land, but there are certainly some key differences. From the moment you clear customs in Jamaica, […]

  • Traveling to Orlando with New Guidelines

    Who would have thought even just 6 months ago that we would still be facing ever-changing requirements to travel? Even as sailings get canceled, masks are required just about every where you go and COVID tests are being required to leave and return to your home state, it is absolutely possible to travel safely IF- […]

  • Sandals Royal Caribbean and Montego Bay – Luxury All Inclusive!

  • Returning to Walt Disney World

    Last week I headed to my second home…Walt Disney World. I really wanted to experience the parks and how they are operating since re-opening. What I saw was incredible.

    I just returned from an EPIC visit to Universal Parks and Resorts in Orlando and wanted to share my experiences with you!  First, I have to say, I could not have been more impressed with all of the measures Universal put in place to ensure guest safety. They also have U Rest Stations throughout the […]

  • Bringing Disney Magic to Your Home!

    Hey – It’s me again. I know it’s been a while since I posted a Blog, but honestly, I really struggled about what to share during this unprecedented time.

  • Surprise!

    I did it! I actually pulled off a surprise vacation! It never fails – I try to surprise the kids with a vacation, a special reservation while traveling or an extra activity on a trip and they figure it out before I can surprise them. This time, I actually succeeded. Last year, my oldest and […]

  • Thanksgiving Surprise!

    In my last blog entry, I discussed what sparked my family to travel over Thanksgiving. Several of those trips had been to Williamsburg over the years. It had been many years since we spent Thanksgiving in Williamsburg. The idea of going back had come up a few times, but I always dismissed it for something […]

  • Thanksgiving Reflections

    While today’s blog still deals with travel, it is also a bit more personal than my usual posts. Quite honestly, I have never been a fan of Thanksgiving. I’m not really sure why. I don’t have a traumatic experience that made me dread the holiday. I think I basically just found it dull. I understand […]
