    Making memories with your smartphone #VZWbuzz

    We travel around the world. It seems like we’re always going somewhere or heading home. We are memory makers and our business is sharing them. Smartphones make it effortless.

    Memories are powerful. They tug at your heart strings. We’re very visual. Capturing our memories in photographs and video is a way to hang on to those feelings of joy, a way to remember those no longer with us, and to keep us connected to our past, our roots in a profound and lasting way.

  • Cross Country Train Trip on Amtrak

    Cross Country Train Trip on Amtrak

    Riding the rails on a cross country train trip had been on our Bucket List for a long time. So when Amtrak offered to take us from Chicago to Los Angeles aboard the Southwest Chief, we jumped at the chance! It was an adventure of a lifetime that included eating Chicago style pizza in Chicago, going to the top of Willis Tower, watching the sunset over the Mississippi River, riding in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque, and exploring beautiful […]

    Home Security for the Traveler

      As professional travelers we spend a lot of time away from our homes. Verizon recently sent each of us a Canary Home Security device that allows us to monitor our homes with our smartphones from just about anywhere in the world. Of course as travelers with completely different travel styles we each had our own take the Canary but we agree that it is great home security device for the traveler. His Way After setting up the Canary I […]

  • The Perils of Family Travel: What the Guidebooks Don’t Tell You

    The Perils of Family Travel: What the Guidebooks Don’t Tell You

    I have read dozens upon dozens of family travel blogs and magazine articles about the merits of family travel with beautiful photos, in exotic locations, everyone looking flawless and fabulous. What the guidebooks don’t tell you about, are the perils of family travel. Always the optimist, I look forward to traveling with my family, but somehow when my clan travels as a quad, things never seem to go quite as smoothly as the articles I read. I feel like the […]

  • Talk to Strangers!

    Talk to Strangers!

    I sat around a table last night exchanging travel stories among Airbnb guests. We somehow came to talk of food. “The best pasta I’ve ever eaten was in Cortona, Italy!” I exclaimed. The lady beside me told us about the time she was in Cortona. She arrived at a restaurant as they were closing. Seeing her disappointment, the man locking up said “Come with me.” I interrupted her, looked at the young fellow at the end of the table, and […]

  • #Travel highlighted in  #Superbowl Commercials

    #Travel highlighted in #Superbowl Commercials

    #Travel highlighted in 2015 #Superbowl Commercials. There were three stand-out Superbowl commercials that put travel in the spotlight. Of course, they caught our attention. We love cruising and found the Carnival Cruise Lines super bowl commercial inspiring. It combined beautiful visuals and the words of John F. Kennedy: “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” Then, they invited us to come back to the sea. We accept!

    The Doritos commercial was just downright funny. As frequent travelers, at one time or another, we have all sat next someone who has done one or all of those things.

    Jeep’s super bowl commercial featured the 2015 Jeep Renegade around the world in amazing places, with “This Land is Your Land, this land is my land” rolling acoustically in the background. Anyone ready for a road trip?
