Spasis: A Korean Jjimjilbang with Kids
One of the things we love the most about summer is swimming. In fact, at the age of three last year Eclair won the cannonball contest at our local pool in the 6-10 age bracket! Summer just isn’t summer without a picnic poolside, bronzed skin and teaching the babies new mermaid tricks. So, we are struggling a little bit...
The Wave Hotel, Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico, Vieques, Traveling with Kids, Family Travel
Nowhere did we see the destruction of Hurricane Maria so prominent than on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Our family visited the island 15 months after Hurricane Maria attacked the Caribbean in September of 2017. We stayed in Isabel Segunda near the ferry dock at The Wave Hotel. These days the hotel doesn’t look like much, but it...

One of the things our family loves about having a branded credit card that rewards you with points to a specific hotel chain is that you always know what to expect. Our family stays at Hyatt Place hotels never disappoint. True, the suspense and adventure of traveling to foreign destination and deciding on an airbnb simply by the inflated...
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort, family hotel, orlando, florida, walt disney world, vacation, traveling with kids
As a family who has taken annual vacations to Walt Disney World for the past decade, this weekend I actually asked myself: "Why go to Walt Disney World when I can just stay at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Hotel in Orlando, Florida?" The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort is the vacation. It’s worth repeating: The Hyatt Regency Grand...
Hyatt House Orlando Universal, Family Hotel, Family Hotel with Kitchen, family travel, traveling with kids, diapers on a plane
And I thought I loved Hyatt Place hotels! On our last trip to Orlando we switched up category hotels and opted for the Hyatt House instead of the Hyatt Place. In fact we booked the brand new Hyatt House Orlando Universal Studios located directly across the street from Universal Studios - and this just may be my new favorite...

My eldest sister and I span an age gap of 16 years. Believe it or not, she was a grandma before I even gave birth to Miss Molasses. She has four children (and now one grandbaby), all four married, and all of them went to Mexico on their honeymoon. I loved to snicker about how, of all...

True, we swore off airbnb last December after our horrific experience in Norway. But then, airbnb reached out to us personally and made good on the situation by offering us nearly a full refund back to our original form of payment. It still took us 8 months to forgive them, and we learned to be much more scrupulous in...

We’ve been visiting Walt Disney World annually since 2010, and in all those years we’ve never once stayed off property. When you stay on property, the magic begins the second you step off the plane into the Orlando airport. Mickey and his Magical Express picks you up and whisks you away to your resort. You stay on a magical...

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...
