Flying from Puerto Rico to Atlanta, then to New Orleans. Our accommodation, how we got around, what we ate and what we wanted to do. Get the low down on the Big Easy.

Central America is not known for it’s fine cuisine. You can’t go to a “Guatemalan” restaurant in Australia or anywhere else I know for that matter except in Guatemala. We really struggled with decent places to eat in Antigua. So the gems we did find I t…

Hotels that cater to children are a vacationer's dream and San Juan Marriott resort will sure live up to that standard. But can Chuck E Cheese?

When one steps into such an magnificent rainforest home with killer views, you can feel two ways. One: overwhelmed, over cautious, pretentious. Two: at home and want to stay forever. I definitely felt the second one.

A date with our daughter in Antigua, where the bright coloured walls make a perfect backdrop for some simply stunning photos. See Antigua through our 4 year old daughters eyes & her father's camera lens.

We had such delicious fun it wasn’t right not to include the kids. Picture a 2 & 4 year old making chocolate, “one for the mold, one for me, one for the mold, two for me, one for the mold…” You get the idea.

Quite rightfully this is the number 2 thing to do in Antigua on TripAdvisor. Two hours went way too fast and I was literally giddy with glee the whole time. I washed my hands consistently (as I’m a finger licker)... Before I knew it we were done and the f…
Mar 14, 2013 Ambergris Caye, Belize
When we first got to this little island I was disheartened, we had tried a few places with not much success. The food was downright crappy. The supermarkets were expensive, the fruit and veg not fresh and it seemed there was nowhere to eat. Then...

Tikal is huge! Our tour was about 5 hours long and over 6km. That’s a lot of walking with a 2 & 4 year old who got up at 4am. The morning started with the quickest (and rare) glimpse of a Jaguar on its way home from a late night party obviously. We also s…

I am petrified of sharks. I come from the land down under where the Great Whites plunder (rap not intended). I rarely swim in the sea and if I do it’s more like a wade where a quick exit is available. And now here I sit. On the edge of a boat gazing at a …

Ever met someone on holiday that convinces you to do a tour? You actually know nothing about the tour, but your husband wants to go because it’s Mayan ruins and that has to end well, right? Next time do your research or you too could be on a 6-hour journe…

Where did we stay? How did we get around? How much does it all cost? Where's the beach? How about shopping? We got all the details written down for you here.

Wildly out of control in pitch-blackness with only the downward slope of the tunnel and the gushing water giving you direction… then BAM! You are out of the tunnel spinning around and around in a large dark cavity. But wait! There is a small hole in the m…
Jan 22, 2013 The Bahamas
It’s a beautiful sunny day. I am sitting in Serenity, the 21+ pool area. There are screams from the nearby waterslide and snoring from an old man on the deck chair beside me. I am overlooking the back of the boat. I can see Nassau, Bahamas & Paradise Isla…

A shout out to the relatives we stayed with in New York who were generous to the max and whom my kids still talk about. Plus a few Jewish Kosher food tips you might not have known.

Vegas, the city of sin is home to many of the 7 deadly sins and gluttony is high on the list. Everywhere you look there is a buffet. While in Vegas we did head to a few of the buffets, generally one every second day with a few squished in at the end that …

We had use of a hire car in San Diego and it was my first time driving on that side of the road. Luckily that scary experience was mixed with the most amazing Penthouse we could have found in San Diego.
