Reno Air Races: A Family-Friendly, Must-See Event for Every Aviation Enthusiast

From the time my child was an infant, he was fascinated by airplanes. Before he could walk or talk, my husband and I would take him for a daily stroll around Tempe Town Lake in Arizona. We chose this man-made lake for our daily walks because it was close to our apartment and close to

Island Hopping in Bohol: An Adventure to Cabilao Island

There is a special kind of beauty about traveling to quieter areas around the Philippines. Yes, the beaches are beautiful, but ultimately, the people are what make the Philippines so incredible. I may be a little biased because part of my roots originates from this country, but after being away for 11 years, I got

Danao Sea of Clouds: A Sweaty Hike to Beautiful Views

Around the second week of our trip to the Philippines, we were desperate for some exercise and adventure. As an active family, it was hard for us to lie around on the beach all day and do nothing (I know, poor us!) I shared my need for exercise to a family friend who excitedly exclaimed,

If you follow me on Instagram and happen to catch me on the mountain on Instagram stories, you’ll most likely find me at Keystone Resort at least once a week.

Legoland Florida Resort: Hotel and Theme Park Review

I have a few favorite hotels that have made our vacations very memorable. I still rave about the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Banff and the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort in New Mexico. Both hotels won me over with their incredible views, beautiful rooms, and the attractions/amenities the properties had to offer. On our recent

Isla Mujeres: Real Mexico or a Real Tourist Trap?

From the moment we arrived in Cancun, we were told: “you must go to Isla Mujeres.” I was craving some R&R on a beautiful beach and I wanted to get away from the noisy resort we were staying in. Isla Mujeres sounded like the perfect spot to do both. With high expectations and a ton of

As an American, Cuba has always been a fascinating place, a forbidden land of mystery.

Prior to our trip, I googled information, read several blogs on tourism in Cuba,

Redwood National Park

I’ve mentioned several times on this trip how the feeling of insignificance constantly emerges whenever we go sightseeing. I can still say that the most intense feeling of insignificance was definitely during our trip to see the Redwoods in northern California. Standing at the foot of these trees and looking up a couple hundred feet
