There is no shortage of things to do on Miyajima. You can play with deer, visit the Itsukushima Shrine and Grand Otorri gate, eat fresh oysters, go hiking, play on the beach, visit the aquarium, explore the neighborhoods and streets, take a gondola ride high into the mountains, and hike up Mt. Misen. It is a children's playground! ► Ranking:...

Across the street from the Granary Burying Ground is Beantown Pub. For some reason, a joke we heard about the pub runs through my head everytime I think about this site: “This is the only place you can get a cold Sam Adams while looking at the cold Sam Adams.” I don’t know that it’s particularly funny, but it’s...
Salem, Massachusetts, Tales & Tombstones, Haunted Trolley Ride, creating family memories, family travel, traveling with kids,
Salem, Massachusetts didn’t prove to be quite what we expected. During our trip to Boston, we carved out a day to spend touring the most iconic Halloween destination in America. Rather than festive Halloween celebrations, however, we found little more than a torture chamber of silliness. While we infinitely enjoyed learning about the history of Salem, and touring the...

With over 10 million people visiting the Great Wall of China every year, it’s safe to say this place is on everyone’s bucket list! Remember a few years back when a huge section of the wall crumbled into nothing? If you were like me, you thought: “Gah! If I don’t go now will it even exist by the time...

While touring the Kuranda rainforest in Cairns, Australia (post coming soon) we had our first encounter with the DUKW. This is an amphibious vehicle that puts the all terrain, in all terrain. DUKW is not an acronym, like you might think, it’s actually the manufacturer's factory serial letters. This bad boy can cover any swath of land you throw...

Dolphins, Sharks and Manatees, oh my! We joined the Time and Tide Tours in Port Canaveral prior to our sailing on the Disney Fantasy and it was an awesome way to learn about the port and the history of the area. We got to go fishing, see and hold aquatic wildlife, and watch a pod of dolphins swim in...

I have a dedicated fondness for high intensity situations. I love romance because it's thrilling, I love moving because it's apprehensive and impulsive, I love baking because it's ambitious and demanding, and I love traveling because it’s adventurous and unknown. I love Halloween because of the unexpected and bizarre, because it is treacherous and risky, and because at no...

On our first trip to Mexico we were only able to visit one cenote: Dos Ojos. It was love at first sight. Swimming in a cave clear as crystal, shared with local fish where you can see to the very bottom depths, surrounded by a natural cave in which stalactites are covering the ceiling while wading in crisp fresh...
