Let’s just call Castaway Cay what it is. Castaway Cay is Treasure Island. ► Ranking: #cleandiaper Disney Cruise Fantasy Port Stop: Castaway Cay, Bahamas Excursion: N/A We anticipated visiting Castaway Cay from the moment we knew it existed.

Every time we eat at the Whispering Canyon Cafe the shenanigans get better and better. This themed restaurant is set in the backwoods of Splash Mountain where dinner is cooked in skillets, drinks are served in mason jars, and the food never stops coming. Including the bottomless milkshakes! ► Ranking: #cleandiaper Whispering Canyon Cafe (TS) 901 Timberline Dr Orlando, FL 32830 Walt Disney...

When we traveled to Iceland, during the middle of December and the dark of winter, we had to pick our activities deliberately. With approximately four hours of daylight we couldn’t see everything, it just wasn’t mathematically or cosmically possible. The Golden Circle is 300 kilometers of Iceland’s most popular sites and attractions, including incredible sites that you can’t find...
Worldschooling the Korean Alphabet in Korea
Today was glorious. We had no agenda and nothing to do, and we let the baby take a nap. Gabriel had a presentation at the Global Campus, so while we waited for him to finish we practiced saying yes in Korean: 예. Today was all about saying yes. The kids love to travel, but no matter how old you...

I can’t help but think of Koko’s Kitchen in Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game when I think about Nishiki Market, also known by locals as Kyoto's Kitchen.

Flying standby is never without a high risk of hazards and rewards. If you’re willing to chance the opportunity of flying at the last minute, in whatever open seat is available, to whichever destination the pilot happens to be flying, you’re going to have a great story at the end of it. Such was the case when we flew...
Family travel to Puerto Rico
The first time we traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico I had just barely started my job working in the airline industry. It was just Gabriel and I and we had no idea how to fly standby or what all the terminology meant. We were just winging it, and affectionately refer to this trip as our trial by fire....

Our visit to Walt Disney World in 2017 fell in between Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria. Orlando broke several heat and humidity records during our visit, and we undeniably felt the heat.

That’s right. We said not! Not good to eat. I mean, I don’t get it. Paula Deen, the Butter Queen herself, is from none other than the sweet state of Georgia and yet we had the hardest time finding a decent bakery in all of Atlanta. And we tried! We struck out four out of five times! If there...
