Five Reasons Not to Miss Brooklyn on Your Next Trip to New York City

Five Reasons Not to Miss Brooklyn on Your Next Trip to New York City

When I think of New York City, I picture Manhattan. From Central Park, the Empire State Building, 5th Avenue, to Broadway, but to truly experience New York City you have to branch out of Manhattan. New York City is made up of five boroughs (divisions) including Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. Brooklyn is the largest of these boroughs with about 2.6 million people! So whether it’s your 1st or 10th trip to the big apple here are…

30 Hours in Victoria B.C.

Recently I had an opportunity to visit Seattle and called my long time friend Cindy in Portland to join me for a whirlwind trip to Victoria. Here’s what we did and how we quite easily managed to fill in the brief 30 hours we spent on the island. We decided that this trip we were going to treat ourselves and not be TOO concerned with the cost of things. Cindy neglected to share this up front with the hubby, but…

European Itinerary Part 1 – London, Bath and Stonehenge

European Itinerary Part 1 – London, Bath and Stonehenge

      How do you fit in all that Europe has to offer in less than 3 weeks? Cities, culture, theatre, history, nature and more… First, don’t try to do everything. With each place I visit I always assume I will return again. Have a plan, but don’t overbook yourself. You don’t want to be so booked you can’t do and see the unexpected. Be flexible. Even the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Stop and breath. You…

European Itinerary Part 4 – Amsterdam

European Itinerary Part 4 – Amsterdam

Day 14 | Amsterdam I fell in love with Amsterdam at first sight. There is something about it that I can’t quite describe, it just felt different than the other cities we had been too and I loved it. We arrived by train and it was a quick 5 minute walk from Central Station to Dam Square. It was raining when we arrived but that didn’t stop the crowds. Floating down Amsterdam’s canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover…

European Itinerary Part 5 – Windsor and Trip Reflection

      When we booked our flights to Europe we were able to get a good deal but it required us to fly in and out of Heathrow airport in England.

Day 17 | Windsor Flying into Heathrow airport, it was a…
