Roaming around New York City

We just got back from a short trip to New York City. Having unused upgrades that we didn’t want to lose was a good incentive, so we looked around for a good travel deal. The New York Times Travel Show was coming up and that was an excellent excuse to return to the “Big Apple” for a few days.

Sometimes people ask me why I’m doing this and I’m happy to Continue reading Beach cleanup efforts

We’ve often thought, especially on those far away trips, that after traveling 20 or more hours to get to a destination, you really only start to Continue reading Going on a long trip: here are 12 tips on how to prepare
