Norcross to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta airport; a simple enough 45 minute journey. A man in a roughed up Honda pulls up to the hotel (more like motel), we pack in my small bag and head off to the airport to New York City. Little did I know I would meet the Afghan Uber Driver Who Touched My Heart. Continue reading “Afghan Uber Driver Who Touched My Heart”
I had the wonderful opportunity to sail through Germany on the City of Lights cruise through Viking River Cruises (as a young person!). The cruise hits the Main river, the Rhine and the Moselle, and allows you time in Prague, Luxembourg and France (I added time at the end in London). I share my experiences and 11 tips on sailing Germany on a Viking River Cruise. Continue reading “11 Tips On Sailing Germany on a Viking River Cruise”
I recently enjoyed a 24 day trip to Europe, which included 12 days on a Viking River Cruise; City of Lights! These cruises are generally geared toward the more “experienced” crowd… aka, older folks.

After traveling from Parrita and the Clandestino Beach Resort, all 9 of us (with 5 children!) made our way over to Manuel Antonio, about a 2 hour drive through a lot of dirt roads. We stayed at a rental home with a guest house and a wonderful treehouse, which quickly became an office (when air conditioning wasn’t needed!) Thus began the week of working from a treehouse in Costa Rica in Manuel Antonio!
Traveling with children to Costa Rica can be quite an adventure. With the right combination of things to do and good accommodations however, it can make for a wonderfully unique, nature-rich trip. I went with another family for two weeks. Total count: 5 children! Our first stop was in Palo Seco, Parrita, close to the Central Valley! The location we settled into was 2 hours from the airport and well off the beaten path. I highly suggest at least two GPS maps!
