A Vacation for Every Member of the Family
November 15, 2019

Photo by Holland America Line Here’s one vacation I’ve found that can please every member of the family. I’m talking about a cruise. Some 40 percent of grandparents are traveling with their grandchildren, AARP reports, and Holland America is the best choice for multigenerational groups. Families enjoy Holland America’s upscale, mid-sized ships ranging from 1,258 to 2,666 guests -- smaller than many megaships but with plenty of onboard entertainment. Photo by Holland America Cruise Line Sail to the Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale or Tampa; to Mexico from San Diego this winter; Alaska or the Mediterranean next summer. Young “Frozen” lovers want to visit Norway and northern Europe. Visit the Panama Canal. Nearly all Caribbean itineraries include a stop at the private island Half Moon Cay.  Or join a bucket …

October 31, 2019

I recently went on a trip to Finland for the first time with the Tortuga Travel Tribe (a group of travel writers) and experienced the Finnish way of life and find out why Finland is the happiest country in the world.

We stayed in Helsinki and Rovaniemi for a few days.  The first few days we stayed in Helsinki at Hotel Katajanokka and spent a lot of time around the Market Square which has six squares for outdoor markets (opening hours for Market Square vary depending on which market and what day) and plenty of transportation to get to places like the islands.  With a single ticket you can hop …

What to Pack when Traveling with Indegestion
July 19, 2019

I travel a lot for my job, and when you're traveling you can't always predict what you're going to eat. I always cave into the spicy, interesting food that I don't usually eat at home. Traveling gives me a freedom to try new things and see new places. We recently went to California and I took the necessities with me: bathing suit, sunblock, face cream and my leggings. I took my leggings because I knew I may indulge in some awesome foods. I know what to pack when traveling with indigestion. But I also took something with me knowing that my love for discovering new and interesting food or local cuisine might lead to some stomach issues. I took Acidil. These quick-dissolving, unflavored tablets melt under the …

Why Greece is a one of the Cheapest Countries to Visit in Europe
May 7, 2019

Greece is probably my favorite country to visit in Europe.  The fact that I am half Greek probably makes me bias. I grew up visiting my Yia Yia every summer in Glyfada, Athens, a beautiful beach town on the outskirts of Athens.  I can still hear the watermelon truck passing by during our siesta and feasting on it after a long day at the beach.  To this day, the smell of Coppertone takes me back to my youth, playing with my cousins on the beach. I have the best memories of visiting the islands and spending time with my family. Best Time to Visit A lot of people visit during the summer months, but it is hot.  Not to worry, the beautiful beaches will cool you down! April …

Travel Essentials for a Family Road Trip
May 4, 2019

We took a 8 hour long trip to California last month and the last time we did a cross country road trip from Florida to Arizona we depended on snacks like Munchpak, My Keto Snack Box, and Lucky Bars to get us through that week long road trip.  We also used Precidio Drink Box's and Snack Box's. This time our road trip was filled with mostly the same travel essentials! Precidio Drink Box and Snack Box We don't go anywhere without our Precidio Drink Box. There's nothing worse than carrying around a heavy thermos.  The Precidio Drink Box is light weight and looks like a juice box, except without the leaking and it's reusable. We also use the Snack Box which has a divider so that you can add sweet and salty.  It's all …

How to take a Solo Vacation Guilt Free
February 15, 2019

How many times do people tell us moms to take a vacation solo? "You need to get away", they say, "have some time to yourself, without the kids." Well, it's easy for them to say but not so easy to do.  So, when I had the opportunity to take a vacation by myself, at first I said yes right away.  But then a little mom-guilt set in.  My boys were asking why they couldn't go.  I had just come back from a press trip to Costa Rica.  I had mom-guilt all the way! We do go on a lot of family trips, like the one where we stayed at the Wyndham Sedona. We go to Disney, Universal and Legoland and so many family friendly places. It …
