What a Deal: The Best Cruise Parking in Fort Lauderdale

April 8, 2018 | 1

Tomorrow we set sail aboard Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas for an 11-night Southern Caribbean Cruise. The best way to feel refreshed for the start of a cruise is to arrive a day or more before the cruise. No need to stress or fret about missing a flight, missing a connecting flight, lost luggage, or any other reasons that may delay travel to the port. We’ve tried those cheap budget park n’ rides and actually parking at the cruise port, but I think this was the best deal for cruise parking we’ve ever experienced. Read More

REVIEW: Zombie Farm Paintball Hayride

October 27, 2017 |

Our first Halloween in Florida and about 30 miles from home, we found a Zombie Paintball Hayride on the Smith Family Ranch, in Lakeland. The first time I heard about such an activity was on the Travel Channel. I don’t know if the episode was talking about Millers Thrillers (Spring Hill, TN), Night of Terror (New Jersey), or ScareFest (St. Louis, MO). Read More

REVIEW: Tampa Lowry Park Zoo

September 20, 2017 |

If you’re patient enough to stay in one place and observe the animals, you typically can witness some different behaviors on every visit… especially for any newborns (i.e. on our visit – the orangutan newborns) at the zoo. We have an annual pass… only $129 / 2-person and there’s so much to see still after only two(2) visits so far this season. There hasn’t been a crowd yet as we’ve visited on weekdays. Read More

Review: Fernandos Hotel (Sorsogon, Philippines)

December 29, 2014 |

For a combo Christmas / New Year’s celebration, we had the help of Jessica of DonsolEcoTour.com to help arrange a 10-day Bicol Region Vacation Itinerary which started in Legazpi. Our first hotel was at Fernandos Hotel in Sorsogon, about 1-hour from Legazpi Airport. We enjoyed our stay here for 3 nights. Read More

Review: (Airbnb) SM Jazz Residences Studio in Makati, Philippines

December 26, 2014 | 3

We enjoyed staying in Debbie’s New & Clean Makati Condo w/Balcony between Dec.16-26. Fairly new travelers renting from owners versus staying at a hotel, you always have some doubt if the ad matches what you actually get upon arrival. Happy to say that the pictures, represented on Airbnb, matched what we saw when we walked into the studio. Read More

Review: (Airbnb) Avida San Lorenzo Tower Studio in Makati, Philippines

December 7, 2014 | 5

We enjoyed staying in Jayme’s Brand New Studio Unit in Makati between Dec.3-7. Fairly new travelers renting from owners versus staying at a hotel, you always have some doubt if the ad matches what you actually get upon arrival. Happy to say that the pictures, represented on Airbnb, matched what we saw when we walked into the studio. Read More

Review: Seeker’s Hive – Vacation Home Rental (Orchidland, Big Island)

October 31, 2014 | 2

Centrally located between Hilo and Kalapana on the East side of the Big Island, we had chosen Seeker’s Hive – A Home Away From Home. We rented the Pele Room for $49/night. Glad we did and in the future will rent again from these salt-of-the-earth hosts: Jay, Vijay and Sangeeth. They had just recently moved to the Big Island from Minnesota so they shared their passion for their new home! Read More
