Legoland New York Delays Opening Due To Coronavirus

Legoland New York

Back in 2017 I first that a new Legoland New York location was supposed to open by 2019. It turned out that the park didn’t announce an actual opening date until late in 2019.

We were very excited that a Legoland would be opening around two hours drive from home. (We really loved visiting the Florida park a few years back and have also been to the smaller Discovery Centers.)

Legoland New York was set to open on July 4, 2020. Continue reading Legoland New York Delays Opening Due To Coronavirus

Yesterday I shared news about a limited time Shake Shack x Pat LaFrieda Collab: Steak Fries to go.

This special menu item would only be available at two locations, one in New York City and one in New Jersey.

To get out and still practice social distancing, we decided to drive to Shake Shack’s West Village Innovation Kitchen to give the steak frites a try.

Last week I wrote about how Avianca had canceled our flight in Ecuador from Guayaqil to the Galapagos.

When I found out that our flight was canceled (we would’ve canceled if the airline didn’t), Avianca stated that the ticket would remain valid until we had a new travel date.

When an airline cancels a flight, I think it’s fair for us to expect a refund not the opportunity to pick a new future travel date. Continue reading Where Do We Stand With Getting A Refund From Avianca?
