We headed to Cancun as a last resort option. A last resort, because Cancun has never been at the top of our list for places I was remotely interested in going. Whenever I think about Cancun all I can think about are spring break bikinis and young adults with extremely poor judgement getting plastered all the livelong day. But,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

When planning our trip to Iceland we knew we’d be stuck inside for a majority of our time. Between the four hours of daily sunlight, the cold winter weather, and considering the fact that the city shuts down entirely for two full days, we wanted a hotel with a pool that we could take the twins swimming and help...

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...

“Boy Howdy Howdy”, is the one thing you’ll have running through your head year after year when you think back on your stay at the Hotel Cheyenne at the Disneyland Paris Resort. It’s like the song that never ends. Now, hear that in your head, and then add a french accent. It even sounds silly in your head. This...
