Now that we’ve got this newborn baby situation mostly sorted, time to start thinking passport. (Who am I kidding, our lives are a mess! But still.) Back when we had
In general parlance, you usually hear that lap infants are “free” until they turn two. That’s generally true – if flying domestically you can bring your under 2 year old
Eilean Donan is a picturesque castle on the road between Inverness and Skye
After four amazing days in Skye, we made our way to the picturesque river town of Inverness. We
We spent four nights in Skye, but I would have happily spent more. It really is the type of place where one can just enjoy taking their time and exploring.
Hopefully my picture post piqued your interest in the Isle of Skye. It truly served as the highwater mark of our trip – quite literally at times since we got
I mostly chose the title of this trip report “Surveying Scotland” due to the alliteration. Surveying turned out to be the right verb, though. I once read in Rick Steve’s
I know people don’t care too much about hotel reviews but I still find them useful, so here are some quick impressions of the Hyatt Regency London: The Churchill (what
One of the benefits of visiting a city repeatedly lies in familiarity. Having visited London multiple times before we had kids, we know our “favorite” places and areas to hang
One thing I neglected to research before leaving was accessibility in London and Scotland. Did you know that the majority of Tube stations in Central London, where the bulk of
Here’s the thing. When you take a redeye (or any flight) to Europe, you lose five hours that you will not get back. Not until it no longer matters at least.

Two kids creates more than twice the work. That holds true for regular life and travel. Nonetheless, we took it upon ourselves to travel to the United Kingdom to celebrate
Since our daughter was born, it’s been our goal to continue traveling regularly with our kids. Maybe not as often or as far, but still enough to make it “regular”.One
Now that I’m a family man, we’ve been gravitating towards the Caribbean more and more. Shorter flights, nice beaches, and less hassle overall. Last year we visited Turks and Cai..
For someone who hadn’t been to Disney in a long time, the trip seemed daunting. So much has changed since I was a kid and of course I wasn’t planning
When I started this series, I talked about how there is so much to absorb when going to Disney and that I was looking forward to figuring things out. As
180 days before our trip, I made some advanced dining reservations (ADRs). Out of those, I kept Via Napoli, Biergarten, Chef Mickey’s, Be Our Guest (lunch), and I made a
At this point we’ve traveled enough with our three year old (and even our seven month old son) to have a general idea of what to consider when making those
So I haven’t decided whether I’ll do a ride by ride analysis for Magic Kingdom like I did for the other parks, but what I would like to do is
They say that you should always be prepared for it to rain at Walt Disney World – for us the rain came the morning we planned to go to Animal
OK, I’ve gotten a little bored about writing about saving money and maximization, so I’m gonna take a break from that stuff and get to the fun stuff – parks!
So I mentioned in my last post that I saved money by staying off site, but I should have saved more. It’s downright shocking to me, but it would have
When I had originally booked this trip, we originally had booked two rooms at Port Orleans: Riverside for seven nights at a rate of about $200/night. After much thought, however,
