One of our family’s favorite outdoor activities is tubing in Ichetucknee Springs. We hope our tips will help you plan your own Ichetucknee Springs tubing adventure!
We love traveling as a family, but one of our favorite places to visit is right in our own backyard. These are some of our favorite things to do in St Augustine, Florida – the weird and wonderful town that we are proud to call home.
Check out our travel tips for a (relatively) meltdown-free family visit to Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Last fall, I took my older daughter to Kennedy Space Center. She’s always been interested in science and technology, and she’d just recently finished a school project about Sally Ride which sparked some interest in aerospace science. I was going to be out of town for her birthday, so this was an early birthday present […]
This post contains affiliate links. Travel for Mortals What exactly is “Travel for Mortals?” Well, it’s travel for families like mine. Families with real people, real budgets, and real obstacles. We can’t afford to quit our jobs and travel around the world (retirement goals!). Our vacations must be carefully planned around school calendars, work schedules, […]
Don’t tell anyone, but my husband is an aspiring travel blogger. Unfortunately, his actual job as an engineer already keeps him a bit busy. But lucky for him, his work takes him to some pretty cool destinations, often from the unique perspective of the locals. And lucky for me, he loves writing about his experiences. […]
This post contains affiliate links. When I met my husband a bazillion years ago, he’d never been on an airplane. But in the past decade or so, he’s become quite a seasoned traveler. He’s been all over North America and beyond, and he’s traveled to some beautiful, remote, and interesting (read: weird) places. Recently, he took […]
My family’s trip to Seminole County was sponsored by the local CVB. Many thanks to Orlando North/Seminole County for hosting us in your lovely community! For most Floridians, planning a family vacation is a no-brainer – we head to Orlando and hit the theme parks. Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, water parks, themed resorts…fun for the whole […]
My 2015 trip to Israel and Jerusalem Marathon registration were paid for by the Israel Ministry of Tourism. All opinions and race experiences are my own. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more information. It’s strange to think how much can change in just one year. This time last year, I’d just run ZOOMA Florida, the first […]
It’s still hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that I’ve been to Israel twice this year. And not just this year, but twice in the last four months. I mean, what are the odds? Both trips seemingly materialized out of nowhere. Both were affordable (one was all-expense paid, the other was heavily […]
Long time no talk! I’m stuck at the airport for a 9 hour layover after missing my connection on a 12 hour international flight. You could say it’s been a long day. But I’ve just been on the most beautiful and spiritual adventure, and I’m trying to train my mind to see the positive in […]
Today’s post comes from the vagabond crew at Bonafide Traveler, a group of traveling friends who love sharing their passion for traveling! Bonafide’s goal is to spread the travel bug and help make your next trip as memorable as possible. And as I set off on some traveling of my own, this seems like a great […]
It’s crazy how things work out sometimes. Last year, my cousin Lisa got engaged and started planning a June 2015 wedding in Stowe, Vermont. My husband and I wanted to attend, but there were some obstacles – expenses, schedules, and what on earth to do with the kids. And then when I found out that […]
I have a lot going on. I say that a lot, apparently. At least according to my mom and sister, who snicker whenever I say it. I guess it’s my go-to “I’m busy so leave me alone” excuse. Seriously, though. It’s been a busy couple of weeks. It’s actually taken me 4 days just to […]
My trip to Israel and the Jerusalem Marathon registration were paid for by the Israel Ministry of Tourism. All opinions and race experiences are my own. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more information. I’m a yenta. So when I received the itinerary for my press trip to Israel, one of the first things I did […]
This jet lag stuff is no joke! Yesterday (my first morning back in the States) I woke up feeling nauseous and dizzy, and I had a pounding headache. I felt much better this morning, but I was wide awake by 5:00 a.m. (11:00 a.m. Israel time). Thank goodness it’s spring break, so the kids and I don’t have […]
