Europe’s culture and history is one of many things visitors find appealing. Oftentimes, popular attractions draw large crowds. But, what if two similar attractions in two different countries offered two opposite experiences? How would you know which one offered more of an authentic experience?
Hard to believe it is time to write up another quarterly travel round-up! Am I the only person who thinks this year is flying by? For anyone new to my quarterly travel roundups, these posts highlight our travel activities by offering glimpses of things that haven’t made it onto the blog yet! Here we go!
Many people are like us. Working adults with responsibilities as well as dreams of far-flung destinations. We fit a different type of travel mold than that of the younger end of the millennium generation. Long ago, we traded in the possibilities of a traditional gap year for the security offered by full time jobs and […]
Planning a Mediterranean cruise is exciting. In fact, going on a Mediterranean cruise is regularly described as a “once in a lifetime” travel experience.

Here I am, in July already, thinking back to the incredible adventures we’ve enjoyed from April through June. These quarterly posts highlight our travel activities by offering glimpses of things that haven’t made […]
Another year is coming to an end, which is really hard to believe. I feel like time is going by faster and faster with each passing year. That being said, we had some great trips this year! As in years past, we still believe it is possible to travel big without quitting our normal 9:00 […]
