$127 For 3 Bottles of Water At Hotel

I’ve always felt that buying bottled water was one of the biggest scams out there. The only time I find it really worth purchasing is when traveling to countries where the water is not safe to drink.

As we all know, the price of bottled water can vary based on the brand and where you purchase it.

However, based on a story I just read on Fox News, the prices at The Wellesley Hotel in London are just crazy! Continue reading

Send Your Kids to North Korea For What???

After keeping Lucas home with a babysitter for around 2.5 years, he started camp this summer. It’s been a little over 3 weeks of camp and he seems to love it so far.

Lucas’ camp is less than a five-minute ride from home. As a kid I wanted to go to sleepaway camp but didn’t get a chance to. Maybe when Lucas gets to be a little older Kim and I should consider sending him to sleepaway camp in North Korea! Continue reading

Review: Diggerland, An Awesome Construction Theme Park


I recently wrote about America’s Wackiest Theme Parks which was based on an article from Yahoo Travel. While I don’t enjoy rides and am not much of a theme park fan, a few parks from the list sounded like they could be a lot of fun.

A couple of days after writing my post, I was happy to get invited to a park from the list that (I’d probably say) I most wanted to visit. Best of all, it happened to be only around a 2 hour drive from home!

This past Saturday, Kim, Lucas and I headed to Diggerland USA to see just what this “Construction Theme Park” was all about.  Continue reading

Plane Makes Tragic Emergency Landing On Beach

I’ve written about small airplanes making emergency landings a few times in 2014. During these landings, luckily nobody was seriously injured and they made for great stories.

I just came across a story from Sarasota County, Florida about a plane that was making an emergency landing on a beach. This time, unlike the other times, the landing had a sad and tragic ending. Continue reading

United Adventure Bear Program, Help A Child In Need

I received an e-mail from United about this program a while back and totally forgot to write about it.  With the offer expiring at the end of the month, there is still some time left to help.

United is looking to help children in need but they also could use some help from us. With the United Adventure Bear Program, the airline’s mission is “to bring smiles to children in need across the globe”. Continue reading

Plane Hits Truck While Landing On Highway

I don’t know what’s going on these days but pilots of personal aircrafts seem to like landing them on highways. Luckily in this most recent incident, nobody was seriously injured.

Last week I wrote about a man landing a plane on the Sunrise Highway in Long Island, NY two times in a period of 8 days. At the beginning of 2014 I wrote about a plane making an emergency landing on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx,  NY. Continue reading

World’s Coolest Tram Rides

Table Mountain Cableway, South Africa

If you happen to be afraid of heights then this post is probably not for you!

When visiting a new place, Kim and I love when we can take a cable car (aerial tram) up to a site. It can be very interesting seeing a place from way up high and can make for a totally different perspective. (It can also sure beat walking!) Continue reading
