As 2017 approaches, I reflect back on 2016 and fondly remember where I went and what I experienced. I look back and think..."Did I go everywhere I wanted to?" The answer is usually. No. I am extremely ambitious and want to go just about everywhere, so I guess you could...

This past fall I took my first trip to Washington D.C. I have wanted to go for sometime, but never really follow through with the planning part. A couple of years ago our close friends re-located to the area. We went down to visit them for the first time, and had the m...

Long weekends are one of my favorite things to do during the summer. There is something extremely refreshing about venturing out for just the weekend - long enough to explore, but short enough to keep you wanting more. Maine  is a great place to explore. It offers a pi...

Recently over a long  weekend I traveled to San Francisco.  As a city I have been dying to visit, I made it part of my mission to see and do as much as possible in the short about of time that I would be there.  With no set plan, I gave San Francisco everything I had....

One of the best days I had in Iceland was on a road trip to Vik. Visiting the black sand beaches of Vik had been at the top of my to do list, and it did not disappoint. Google maps estimated the trip would take 2.25hrs from Reykjavik. I knew the ride would be long, but...

In May my family and  I took a cruise to Alaska. The ship left out of Vancouver and ended in Seward. Alaska is by far one of the most beautiful places I have been to. The rich beauty offered by nature is unquestionably astounding in every way. It was every bit as breat...

On our NCL cruise through Alaska last May I stayed at Hotel Alyeska in Girdwood, AK for two nights prior to flying out of Anchorage. Not only did this hotel get amazing reviews, but it was also a halfway point between Seward and Anchorage. My plan was  to grab a taxi t...
