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...

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...
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...

Our home state of Utah is a treasure trove of National Parks, and we’ve worked hard to visit them all throughout the years. It’s so interesting to consider that people from all over the world travel to our home state for a holiday, and here we are just itching to go see the rest of the world. Despite our...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
