After visiting so many wonderful places over the last year on the road, we wanted to return to one of our very favorites for the holidays – Athens. Greece in December? Yes! It is lovely. We were in Athens the entire month of December and most of the days were sunny and in the mid-60°s […]
Say “Niagara Falls” and thoughts instantly turn to the massive, majestic natural wonder that is one of the world’s most famous waterfalls. But, Niagara Falls is actually a region with three waterfalls – one in Canada and two in the United States – and two cities, all falling under the Niagara Falls title. View the Niagara […]

September is a popular month to visit Toronto, with comfortable temperatures and bright blue skies in abundance. September is also […]
Living on the road full time so much over the past few years, we spent 227 days in Airbnb apartments in nine countries and some have been great, some okay, and a couple of spots – well, we left and went to a hotel. At the top of our Airbnb annoyance list – #2 would […]

Move over peanuts and Cracker Jacks®, food at MLB ballparks has definitely improved in recent years. Sure, peanuts are still readily available (and consumer), but these days going to a ballgame doesn’t have to mean abandoning food preferences or simply not eating at all. We stopped by Seattle on our way to Miami from Vancouver […]
After 45 days of roaming around England, Scotland, and Ireland, we were ready to settle in one spot for a month. Seeking cool temperatures to avoid the summer heat and some good dining options, where better than Canada? We found a great apartment in the heart of Vancouver with stunning views and settled in for […]
We shouldn’t love Venice. It’s touristy. It can be very crowded. It can take forever to go a short distance as packed water buses slowly navigate canals. Yet, as our train pulled out of the station toward Milan as our month in Venice ended, we were leaving somewhat reluctantly as we departed the charming city […]
Is January a good time to visit Paris? If you don’t mind the colder weather and prefer a quieter Parisian experience with far fewer tourists, then January is perfect. Monuments and museums have no lines and you can actually walk up and see the Mona Lisa. Like fashion and bargains? The Soldes d’Hiver (winter sales) […]
Sitting on the tarmac in a Southwest Airlines jet, I looked out the window as an American Airlines plane rolled by.
