Since my daughter was born we have taken her just about everywhere with us. In just two short years she has been to San Diego, Cape Cod, Vancouver, a cruise through Alaska, Turks and Caicos, Iceland, and a road trip through Vermont. My hope is that she loves to travel...

As I begin packing for our upcoming trip to Germany, I started to contemplate sharing a suitcase with my daughter. Come to think of it, this always goes through my mind when packing. I have no issue packing her own suitcase, but as always the lighter you travel the eas...

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...

My second stop on the Big Island was Mauna Kea. It is one of the five volcanoes that form the big island, and is Hawaii's largest. I wanted to pick the perfect day to make the trip. Weather is an important factor for the view at the top. The forecast for the week was g...

I can't imagine getting around the Big Island without a car. It was perfect for going from one place to the other. I did some research on which rental models were best suited for touring around, and it really depended on the activities that I wanted to do. As, I previo...
