Chicago is such an awesome city to visit: full of history, world-class museums, shopping, fun dining options and kid-friendly attractions. If you are thinking ahead to spring break or summer vacation, Chicago is definitely a place to keep on the list of musts for family trips. I have visited Chicago at least a dozen times over the years. Some trips were for business, some for a girls' only weekend, a few have been a one-day up and back Chicago day trip and, of course, the family…Continue

I've asked myself this question a few times over the past 8 months. You want to go somewhere that may not necessarily be infant friendly, and are wondering how they'll take it.

Escapism at its best!
About the Book: What if you discovered a portal that took you to the 12th Century, where you met, fell in love with, and married a princess, had a child together, and then you discovered that you might never see them again?
Lucky finds himself in this peculiarly unique situation when he discovers he no longer can access The Time Portal.
Because of obligations in the present, Lucky…

My last trip away from home was the Singapore getaway in the middle of September, seems like a long time to me though it was only around two months ago. So when my friend suggested to go Taiping for a short trip, I didn't hesitate, after all, Taiping is just less than an hour away from Ipoh...
I started the journey early on Saturday and we had a nice stroll at the Taiping lake... due to the rain, the plants and the trees glitter and the lake is not "drought looking"…

It was a simple quest.
Andrew and I were going to take a relatively quick 5 1/2 hour road trip to the Capital District so we could get India from college for the summer.
But someone had decided her van wouldn't make the 30° grade of the Driveway From Hell over the winter and parked it. Not in the barn on the hill, where it would be protected. Nooo. I parked her in the driveway and let her sit - under 3 feet of snow…

It was after 5pm when we strolled down to the town, it was quite deserted by then. Most of the shops are closed at 5pm, except for a few eatery shops but we didn't take our dinner there. We bought some frozen pizzas from the grocery stall and micro-waved them in the guest house. (Saves some pounds and pennies!) LOL..
Let me tell you…

Nothing is worse than having your credit card declined, especially when you're trying to buy your family subway passes at a kiosk under Times Square surrounded by early morning commuters.
Don't get me wrong, the people around us were very understanding, if misguided in assuming we'd run up our line of credit. I think someone did offer to help pay our fare in the confusion, but just about everyone else was focused on catching their train.
It didn't help that when you're that far…Continue

When I made the decision, really made the decision, to adopt a greener lifestyle, I had people say to me “I’d love to go green but I can’t afford it.” Have you ever said that? Thought that? If so, I will refrain from telling you what I said in return.
The point is that if you think about it,…Continue
