Road Trip Survival Tips

2021-02-18T18:31:36-05:00February 12, 2021|Travel|0 Comments

              Travel of any sort with kids in the mix has its challenges, but for many people, the thought of the whole family being trapped in the car for a day or more together sounds horrifying. I’m happy to fly with my kids, but there are times when it’s not the best option. I’ve made several 12+ hour road trips with my kids, one of whom is a toddler, in the past year. It might seem a little overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be stressful! One of the first things you can do [...]

“The human world… it’s a mess”  I bet we are all feeling a little like Sebastian from The Little Mermaid right now, wishing we could be Under The Sea, am I right? With news of quarantines, social distancing, and closures world-wide, it’s hard to not feel down about the current state of things. Not to mention, it’s even harder to feel positive about the state of things when your vacation has been cancelled!    Disruptions to the travel industry are normal - expected even. We deal with disruptions every year during hurricane season! But there’s a first for everything - [...]

10 Tips for a Great Carnival Cruise

2015-03-24T06:00:00-04:00March 24, 2015|Travel, Travel Destinations|1 Comment

Whether this is your first cruise, or your tenth, you'll find some useful tips here to improve your upcoming trip! 1. Get your passport. On my recent cruise on the Carnival Magic, the embarkation lines were crazy long. Once we got through the ID checkpoint and into the line for room keys, my group was singled out and moved into a different (much shorter!) line. Why? Because we had two things going for us: we had passports and we did the 2. Online check-in. You can give the cruise line all your information ahead of time, print out a boarding [...]

The Atlantis-Paradise Island, Bahamas

2015-03-18T06:00:00-04:00March 18, 2015|Travel, Travel Destinations|0 Comments

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Paradise. Well, Paradise Island in the Bahamas, but it’s pretty close to Paradise! You’ve seen this hotel in movies and on commercials. It’s made to look like as though it rose from the ocean. It’s a very large resort with beautiful architecture. There is some of the bluest water in the world in the Bahamas. One of my friends even called it “Aqua Marine” and I believe she is right! There are also some of the friendliest people there that I’ve ever encountered at the Atlantis! The staff at the Atlantis all seems [...]

2014-06-29T09:06:25-04:00June 29, 2014|Travel, Travel Destinations|0 Comments

The End of the Road Day 14 - After breakfast today, I stopped in the office at Pismo Lighthouse Suites and asked the desk clerk how find the sand dunes we looked for during yesterday's frightful adventure. It turns out that we had the right place the very first time! The place that had a flashing sign asking for permits and papers was just for people who want to DRIVE on the dunes. There's a restaurant just off the road where people can park and walk onto the dunes and beach. Knowing this, we had to go there after we [...]

Death Match 2014 – Day 8 trip report

2014-06-22T07:00:00-04:00June 22, 2014|Travel|0 Comments

UNIVERSAL HOLLYWOOD Background: About a year ago, I got a great idea for a road trip. I'd take my kids, fly from my hometown of Houston TX , to San Diego CA, and then drive from San Diego to Oakland. We'd stop and see all the sights along the way, and then fly home from Oakland. Then I asked my friend Gina, who lives in California, if she'd like to come along. With her kids. She agreed, and Death Match 2014 was born. Two ladies, seven kids, and a 15-day road trip up the California Coast. Day 8- Today was [...]
