Over the summer the Michael W Travels family spent 5 weeks in the Pacific. During our trip I visited six new countries while Kim, Lucas and Theo visited five.
When visiting a new country we always try to visit McDonald’s to see what interesting local menu items might be available. Lucas also loves getting a toy and having some time to play in the playground.
I booked our flights from JFK to LAX and LAX to NAN using points on different airlines. We chose to have the long layover in Los Angeles since we didn’t want to take a chance on missing our international flight. We initially figured that it would be a good opportunity to wander around LA.
If you enjoy ice cream and live in or are visiting NYC, you might have a problem. With so many great options, it might be hard to decide where to go for your frozen dessert fill.
It’s hard to pick a favorite, but some of our top picks (in no particular order) are Ample Hills, Blue Marble, Davey’s, Van Leeuwen and OddFellows Ice Cream. You also can’t go wrong by ordering a cone from a Mister Softee truck!
Despicable Me 3 comes out today, June 30. While this might not be of interest to most of you, it is exciting to Lucas since he’s a big fan. I promised Lucas that I’d take him to see the movie one day so that means I’ll most likely get a decent nap!
