I’d be lying if I didn’t confess that part of our enjoyment in travelling is finding great local places to eat. Although we didn’t have a lot of time in Kentucky, here are some great local finds from our snowy week in the state. Turtlelini’s | Horse Cave, Kentucky When you’re driving from Lexington to […]
Kelly and I have long wanted to “do” the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. We like bourbon and we really like to see how things are made. Here’s a summary of our first trip on the Bourbon Trail (cut short due to weather) and some tips and tricks if you’re interested in planning your own trip.
So our niece, A, came to stay with us for a week – her first-ever flight, her first-ever long week away from family, her first-ever time to stay alone with us. Good times. Really – it was good times. We only had one bout of homesickness, no preteen meltdowns and a remarkably sunny attitude from […]
Ever wonder how many laps of a secluded small island equal one mile? Eleven. Runners are weird. And speaking of weird, we ran 17 miles at DisneyWorld last weekend. By the way, it takes 20 laps around the Epcot resort area lake to equal 20 miles. Not that I was counting or anything.
While in Belize, we collected an enormous amount of shells. Well, maybe not a ton of shells, but plenty of pretty ones. They made me happy – both searching for them and bringing them back to remember our wonderful island experience. There was just one problem: Some of the shells had a musty odor and […]
Of course, no vacation can last forever. Otherwise it wouldn’t be vacation. Or it might be life in Kenya. But that was 16 years ago for me. I digress… I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the one thing that I talked about nearly non-stop while we were on the island: Dolphins. I wanted […]
We travelled off Waterfoot Caye two times: Once on an inland outing with the other resort guests and the second to visit the local markets and grocery stores (a must for us on any international trip). I could go into the disaster that was the former trip, from a too-small vehicle (sitting square and on […]
We had an all-inclusive package (except for alcohol). That was perfect for us – good food, fresh juice and plenty of water, plus the occasional drink that we purchased as a splurge. The chefs at Yok Ha were inventive and talented. Plus they fulfilled our two main requests from day one: dairy-free for one of […]
So what would you do on a secluded island – one that doesn’t include a lot of fuss and fanfare? One that only has five cabanas (with a maximum occupancy of 16 people)? You kayak: You look for seashells: You read: You sunbathe: You do yoga: You snorkel: You wander about with your sweetie: You […]
