Do You Call It Putt-Putt or Mini-Golf?

Putt Putt

Last year when we were in Orlando, Logan asked one morning if we could go play “Putty-putt.” And Kora asked a little while later if we were going to play “Golf-golf.” They had us laughing. We did get a chance to go and had a great time, complete with holes-in-one all around! When we paid […]

Have You Ever Traveled By Train?

Railroad Tracks

The question of the week is have you ever traveled by train? I did a few years ago with my mom when we were traveling to Toronto for a mom & me weekend getaway. Things went smoothly. Boarding was easy and it wasn’t long before we were on our way. The ride was nice because […]

Do You Exercise When You Travel?

What Are Your Must Have Hotel Amenities?

Hotel Amenities

What are your must-have hotel amenities? Do you like the little soaps and lotions? The traveler’s pack of Q-tips? The shower cap, the sewing kit? What about the in room safe, the continental breakfast, the swimming pool, the fitness center, or spa? Whenever we stay at a hotel I always check to see what amenities […]

Have You Ever Felt Like This?

Vacation Sign

While I love vacations where we relax on the beach, play in the sand and surf, and don’t do much of anything, some of my favorite vacations have also been those where we are on the go all the time. The memories that are made when we visit a busy city, tourist destination, or amusement […]
