Unfortunately, our kids are not as adventurous when it comes to eating…actually they are downright P-I-C-K-Y.  Truthfully, our son has been diagnosed with a food sensory disorder (also has nut allergies) and he despises certain textures and odors. Definitely makes traveling stressful at times. Nevertheless, we do our best and tend to grab street food […]

So we opted for less vulnerable option, a true jungle river cruise — well, unless you are afraid of sharing the river with crocodiles. To start […]

We had been married less then a week and headed off the grid for our honeymoon. When I say off the grid, I mean OFF. So far off, we were encouraged to register with the U.S. consulate office, since our destination was considered a “security risk” and the government there was “questionable.” Nevertheless, we headed […]
