Looking Back: Should You Take Your Toddler To Oktoberfest?

With Oktoberfest 2017 underway (and ending on October 3), I felt it would be a great idea to re-share a post which I wrote about the festival a few years back.

Take a look at my post, “Should You Take Your Toddler to Oktoberfest“. ¬†Feel free to share your thoughts. Would you bring your toddler to Oktoberfest or would you rather experience an adult only version? Continue reading Looking Back: Should You Take Your Toddler To Oktoberfest?

During our 5 week summer trip around the Pacific, our first stop was the Kingdom of Tonga. Sundays are a very quiet day on Tonga. Most things are closed so we spent a day on Pangaimotu Island.

There aren’t a lot of must- do activities on Tonga’s main island, Tongatapu. Regardless, we had a really fun time, renting a car and driving all over the island to various sites.

We love animal- related experiences, so when we read about Tonga’s “famed fishing pigs” in Lonely Planet, we wanted to see these porkers in action. Continue reading Tracking Down The Famed Fishing Pigs of Tonga

It’s been a busy first full week back to work. It definitely takes some adjusting, getting used to after being away for 5 weeks.

I can’t recall the last time I checked TripIt and my account said no new trips. This bothers me! I had to do something about it so I booked a short domestic trip to a new state for all of us. We’ll be going away in a few weeks from now which will be nice. Then it’s back to looking for trips for various breaks we have throughout the upcoming school year.
