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...

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...

One of the distinguishing characteristics of a Disney cruise is the luxury factor. The grand lobby, the glass elevators, the exquisite foods, the private island… This even extends where most cruises stop: your stateroom. On a Disney cruise your stateroom is one of the largest. Though you won't be spending most of your time here, it makes all the...
Costa Rican Airbnb, Costa Rica, Traveling with kids, Family Travel, Diapersonaplane, Diapers On A Plane
Our trip to Costa Rica started with a plan to watch the sea turtles hatch. I was enamored by the idea of watching the sea turtles arrive back to the beach where they were birthed, lay their eggs, and then watch one by one as each baby turtle gained their footing and embarked on their life journey. Circle of...

Renting Your Home on Airbnb: Part 1 How To Make the Decision to Open Your Home to Guests Within our first two years of marriage, Gabriel and I co-managed a small apartment building in Downtown Portland directly next to the Max (local transit train). Our building would literally rattle every time it went by, and our window sills were full of...

Having never been to Japan, choosing a place to stay was a daunting task. Typically I spend weeks, or months, depending on how spur of the minute trip it is, researching the place we are going. I attack it from a historical perspective, and a cultural one, including figuring out all the top attractions and things to do (post...

We’ve stayed at every type of resort Disney has to offer. And while we’ve mostly enjoyed our stays, we can, and will, and want to, freely admit that some visits have been more magical than others. The value resorts at Walt Disney World are catered towards families on a budget, which is hilarious considering the nightly price tag, and...

We knew it would be an adventure to travel for Christmas, especially through two different climates and with a suitcase full of Christmas presents, but we didn’t quite anticipate everything that could go wrong, would go wrong. On our first leg of the trip from Salt Lake City, Utah to Galveston, Texas one of our bags of luggage was...
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...

Across town, in the opposite direction of the graffiti and promiscuous pictures was where we found our home for Christmas. This darling airbnb, with red cupboards in the kitchen and four single beds laying side by side each other in the bedroom, was perfect for our celebrations. Though we longed to be in Tromsø, we were finally in a...
