If you’ve been following along thus far, you know we had a great time exploring the Yucatan Peninsula a few weeks ago. True to form, I couldn’t just have fun…I had to get home and analyze the entire trip. But let’s be honest, this is part of the fun for me anyway. (more…)
I’m excited to announce that I’ve finally booked another trip! I was itching to go somewhere, and we finally settled on exploring the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico!
As I mentioned a last week, I planned a little trip to Florida for the end of February! The main idea was to visit some family that lives outside of Orlando, but it kind of fused with some more family staying at Walt Disney World the same week. Since they live out in South Dakota, I jumped at the opportunity to get everyone together. One of the first times we’ve had the South Dakota family, Florida family, and Boston family together in a long time, and only the second time in my son’s life!
Obviously, we couldn’t leave without spending a bit of time at Disney World with them…
We’ve also benefited hugely from the South Dakotans on this trip. They do Disney (in part to visit the Floridians) almost every year, so they know the all the ropes. I do not. And Disney has a whole mess of ropes to learn.
Give me a timeframe, location (read: not Disney), and budget and I’ll plan you a great trip! But Disney? Kind of complicated…and expensive.
Winter’s finally here in Boston. We got spoiled a little bit in December and November, as Mother Nature spoiled us with a little more warmth than usual.
Now it’s zero degrees with windchill, ahh that’s more like it. So, who wants to go to Hawaii?
I know, me too. Unfortunately it’s not me going, but my brother. However, he’s entrusted me with booking the flights, which lets me experiment a bit. Lucky for him, I actually love finding the cheapest flights, analyzing the routes and travel times, and figuring out the best way to get from Point A to Point B.
I had the pleasure of spending over 2 weeks in Peru this past August/September. We flew out of Boston on August 28th, 2015, and didn’t come back until the 14th of September. We spent one week volunteering in Cusco, and the rest of the time we just explored. Peru was absolutely amazing. We were able to do the most of the “Gringo Trail” as the locals call it, and see the all of Southern Peru. We spent time in Lima, Cusco, Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, Arequipa, Huacachina/Ica, and Paracas.
Further down the post I’ll outline my budget and packing list for anyone that wants to plan a similar trip.
