  • Paris through the eyes of Expedia’s Local Experts

    Paris through the eyes of Expedia’s Local Experts

    We had never been to Paris so when the opportunity arose for us to see the city of lights through the eyes of Expedia local experts, our bags were packed before you could say merci beaucoup.

    Through Expedia you can arrange a private standard car fromCharles de Gaulle Airport to your hotel. The entire process was very simple. I went online, entered all the flight information, pre-paid ($63.00 from the airport to the hotel) and the driver waiting for us at baggage claim. Having never been to Paris before, this took the stress out of navigating from the airport to the hotel after an 8-hour red eye flight.

    Kale and Strawberry Salad from @FSMaui #Recipe #PictureMaui

    When we travel our souvenirs are our memories. And recipes. We collect recipes. We like to bring back some of the flavor of places we have been to recreate the experience long after we are home. On a recent trip to Maui with the Expedia Viewfinders, we had the pleasure to lunch at Ferraro’s at the Four Seasons, Wailea’s only beachside open-air restaurant.  A spectacular view, gentle trade winds, bright blue skies and the incomparable Four Seasons hospitality made for […]

  • Romantic Destination:  Hawaii Island

    Romantic Destination: Hawaii Island

    Rick and I have an amazing partnership. We have been business partners for many years and have over 50 years of marriage between us, to other people! There is in fact, a Mrs. Griffin and a Mr. McKenna. Our spouses, Denise and Ralph, are the often-unsung heroes of our business partnership, keeping the home fires burning as Rick and I jet around the world writing about incredible places.

    So, when Expedia released the results of the 2015 Expedia Heat Index, it got me thinking about romantic destinations, and a Hawaiian vacation I took with my mister that conjures up memories of love, luaus and leis.

As co-host of Midlife Road Trip, it breaks my heart to think that children with certain diseases, including cancer, may have experienced their midlife before they even started kindergarten. When I was a kid, my cousin, Terri, died of a rare bone cancer when we were both only 10 years […]
