Traveling Family Tokyo Japan Asia Tokyo Celebration Hotels Wish Discover
Tokyo is an expensive city, and when the hotels charge per person, instead of per room, you can imagine how things add up when you add three kids to the bill. One way to offset these costs is by booking an airbnb, which we really enjoyed during our trip, but when it came to Disney, we wanted to have...

Nothing happened according to plan this trip to Norway. And I mean that in the most literal sense. When we arrived at the Scandic Hotel, chosen because of how often we’d seen it pop up in search results in Google and we just wanted a sure thing, it was early in the morning after our Hurtigruten cruise. We couldn’t...

After chasing down the Northern Lights unsuccessfully in Iceland four years ago, this unfulfilled dream of ours has never left the forefront of our thoughts. When we read that Tromsø was the one place on Earth where the Northern Lights appeared more than anywhere else in the world, Norway soared to the top of our adventure list. We immediately...

We plan all our travels last minute. Part of it is a perk of the job. We get great last minute discounts as part of interline perks. The other part is flight loads. You can’t very well plan everything out not knowing if you’ll even get on a flight where you’ve planned out an intricate vacation. The last part...

We made a lot of mistakes when we first started traveling. The first mistake we made was thinking we could always come back. We’d forgo doing things because they were either too expensive, or the line was too long, or we couldn’t squeeze it in. Traveling isn’t like going to the mall, or stopping at Target on the way...

When we see the name Wyndham slapped on a hotel, we are slightly weary of what will be waiting for us on the other end. Ages ago, we attended a Wyndham timeshare presentation, sucked in by the promise of a free stay. Nothing in life is free, and we paid a dear price for that presentation. The sales person...

As card carrying members of the World of Hyatt club we definitely try to choose a Hyatt Hotel when we can. The more we stay at Hyatt, the more we can stay at Hyatt. We chose Hyatt as our card of choice because they were offering a sweet bonus for signing up, and the points transfer point for point...

The Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground opened 10 years after Disneyland debuted to the public and was the first good neighbor hotel located in proximity to the park. It’s a five-time winner of TripAdvisor’s Top 25 Hotels for Families in the United States, and claims to be the #9 family hotel in the entire country. A bewildering...

We’ve been visiting Walt Disney World annually since 2010, and in all those years we’ve never once stayed off property. When you stay on property, the magic begins the second you step off the plane into the Orlando airport. Mickey and his Magical Express picks you up and whisks you away to your resort. You stay on a magical...

Flights didn’t look good departing from Oslo to Amsterdam on December 30 but if nothing else we are risk takers. What do a couple too few seats even mean to a standby traveler? Anything can happen. After all, we made it on a flight from Kirkenes to Oslo that morning when the odds were against us, and not just...
