We first discovered 'The World's Greatest Hot Sandwich' on our first trip to Disney World: May 5, 2010; it is commemorated on Facebook. The location is just down and across from Goofy's Candy Company in Disney Springs with a huge marquee that you can't miss....

Currency in Iceland, Icelandic Money, Krona, Bankers, Economy, Diapersonaplane, Diapers on a plane, creating family memories, family travel
The local currency in Iceland is the króna, kr or ISK. Similar to all Scandinavian countries which utilize a version of the krone. Króna translates to crown, a nod to declaring autonomy in 1885 by printing their own banknotes, and ultimately gaining independence from Denmark in 1918.  Iceland is no stranger to the trouble with its currency.

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!

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...

I have a dedicated fondness for high intensity situations.

I love Halloween because of the unexpected and bizarre, because it is treacherous and risky, and because at no...
