On a trip to Boston quite a few years back, Kim and I had a really fun time on a Duck Tour.

The Duck amphibious vehicles take you around town on land and on the water, which is definitely an interesting way to be shown around.

Duck Tours are offered all over and I figure that at some point in the future, we’ll take our kids on one of these tours. Continue reading Duck Tour Boat Capsizes In Branson, MO, 13 Dead

Border Jumping: Kansas & Missouri

$348.65 + 71,906 Points= Trip For 3: Air, Hotel & Car Rental

For one reason or another I’ve long enjoyed stopping for a photo at border crossings, especially those with some sort of sign or marker.

The first time I could think of doing this was when we walked across the border from South Africa to Namibia. I also had some fun jumping by the border of Kosovo and Albania during our trip last summer to the Balkans.

During our most recent trip to the Mid-West, we found a border marker at an unlikely place, on the middle of a bridge! Continue reading Border Jumping: Kansas & Missouri

Our Mid-West Mini Roadtrip In A Nutshell

Earlier in the summer, Kim, Lucas and I spent five days checking out a part of the U.S. that was pretty much new to us during our Mid-West Mini Roadtrip.

While there weren’t really any amazing sites and things to visit, it was still a fun trip for a relatively low cost. It actually ended up being a great trip for Lucas due to the amount of things that we visited which appealed to him.

During our long drive from Kansas City, Missouri to Omaha, Lucas got to see lots of trains. We also stopped at a couple of transit museums which were right up his alley!

A highlight for me was getting to finally try out some of Kansas City’s famous barbecue! Continue reading Our Mid-West Mini Roadtrip In A Nutshell

With our most recent trip being planned last-minute (and during the trip), I didn’t have the time to write a trip-planning post. However, I still wanted to share all of the details now that the trip has come to an end.

Earlier in the year, Kim, Lucas and I set out on A Quick Euro-Roadtrip where we got a taste of 3 Countries In 4.5 Days. I can’t say that I love driving but I did enjoy this trip since it was quite different than the norm for us. While thinking about where to go during our end of school year break I kept focusing on Missouri. I’ve been wanting to visit St Louis and Kansas City for a while and this seemed to be the perfect time. Continue reading $348.65 + 71,906 Points= Trip For 3: Air, Hotel & Car Rental
