Taking trips as one family, meaning one couple, and all their children and the children’s families is really in. Trips are a great way to reconnect as a family.

Have you ever wanted to visit the West Indies? Maybe you’re just looking for an exotic vacation spot. Or maybe you want to be a better explorer than Christopher Columbus, at least you’ll get where you meant to go. Either way, you might want to try visiting Barbados. And here are some reasons why.

The first reason is the people. One good thing about the people, especially for tourists is that thevendors usually ask you just once if you want to buy a certain thing. So there is little pressure to buy, buy, buy. Most everyone is warm and welcoming.

You are also going to enjoy the food of this place. Barbecue is one thing they have in abundance here. And of course, since this is an island, you are going to find a lot of great seafood too. You are going to find some great fish sandwiches, and some tasty fried foods as well.

And then there are, of course some beautiful beaches. You’ll enjoy them whether you love to walk or just want to enjoy walking on the beach. There are some great hiking paths. There are also some beautiful places to scuba dive.

Summer is a time to relax, a time, to get away with family and friends, or maybe also a time to get away from them and just be with the one you love most.

If you are a newlywed, or maybe you’ve had your first baby and just want to take a little break. If you have an older family, you might want to do one family vacation and one vacation as just a couple.

More on Harmony of the Seas

630x355 (3)

Having the largest cruise ship in the world is big news, so let’s look at this more today.

This ship is actually divided into neighborhoods to make things more manageable. The neighborhoods pretty much all have shops, restaurants, and entertainment in them. Anyone in the crew should be able to help you find anything you are looking for.

One thing you’re likely to want to try is Royal Caribbean’s popular restaurant called Johnny Rocket’s. This is a burger joint which will make you feel like you were back in the sock hop era. They have a real soda fountain where they mix syrups with soda water. They will have cheddar cheese to put on your hamburgers. And of course, you can’t leave until you try their apple pie.

You will probably want to go to this restaurant after catching their performance of Grease. Their production of this classic is a little different than everyone else’s in that they mix the Broadway and the movie. They have some great actors in this show as well as a live orchestra. This sounds like a show you’ll not not want to miss.

This is one place I would love to go and see myself. Let me know if you are interested.

Royal Caribbean has built the world’s largest ship, though I’m sure their competitors are trying to come up with something better.. The ship is named Harmony of the Seas. Let’s look at some cool features.

For one thing this ship has a huge slide. And in case you are asking, no, this is not a water slide. It is a huge dry slide. You’ve be riding down in things like sleeping bags to get the very best ride.

They do have water slides as well. Three of them make up what is known as the Perfect Storm. Two of these slides are known as the official racing slides. So if anyone in your family is competitive, this will be perfect for them.

The ship actually has an aqua theater. Here you can watch the players put on all kinds of water shows. They will be doing things like high dives and and acrobatic tricks. I think we are going to look at this more tomorrow. I would love to know your thoughts.

Other things to do in the Bahamas

Bahamas is a great place to do beach things. They have beautiful beaches whether you like lying on the sand, playing in the water, or just watching the beauty. But what should you do when you get tired of doing the beach thing? Here are some ideas.

The Bahamas is home to some of the world’s phenomena. Among these is the world’s largest colony of pink flamingos. Did you know flamingos are pink because of the shrimp that they eat? They also have one of the largest reefs in the world. You will probably want to go see both of these.


Taking your ski boat to the Bahamas isn’t likely going to happen. But there are plenty of places to rent boats. They also have several Full service marinas. You can go off with just your families, or else you can what is like a boat caravan. This is probably the safest way to do things until you are more familiar with the area.

You and your family can also learn how the locals live and play through cultural tours. The Bahamas is made up of seven hundred islands, so there’s always something to do and explore. Go see some of the lighthouses they have.. And Bahamas is one of the few places you can swim with the pigs.

I would love to know any questions you might have about the Bahamas. Please let me know.


Secrets of the monuments


I don’t know how much I am going to be working this week. My Grandma’s funeral is Thursday. I’m not sure how much I am going to be online Wednesday through Friday.. I hate that Grandma is gotten, but find great comfort in knowing where she is.. But anyway.

Today we are going to explore some secrets of the monuments.. The first one we are going to look at is the secret room behind Mount Rushmore. This room was actually going to be much larger, but there is a small room right behind Lincoln’s head that holds all kinds of important documents.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to to breathe free,” are the words of the Statue of Liberty. Most everyone is familiar with those words. But did you know that there is a broken chain surrounding her feet, symbolizing freedom to all.

There is a hidden track at Grand Central Station. FDR grew up in the state of New York and used to take this track all the time. It was hidden from public eye so that he could continue to keep his disability hidden from the world.


And you’ve heard of the Golden Gate Bridge, right? It wasn’t supposed to be red. Red was just what they were using for a primer. But they decided they liked the color so mch, they left it red.

Do you have any traveling secrets you would like to share? I would love to hear them.

Visit San Antonio

630x355 (3)

Have you ever been to San Antonio. My family went once because I have a brother who was in the Air Force, and we went to see him graduate from basic training. We stayed with a family and had a lot of fun with them.. But today let’s look at some reasons you and your family might want to go.

I know that they have Sea World in the area. Their newest attraction allows you to interact with dolphins. Dolphins are my favorite animal, so I think that this would be very cool. You are actually going to be able to swim with the dolphins. They’ve also recently expanded their dolphin area.

There is a museum full of Mayan artifacts. Here your family can explore different aspects of the Mayan culture. And it is very much a hands-on museum, which will be a good thing for the little people in your family.

This city also has a Six flags. And of course, like most amusement parks, they’re always adding new rides. This is especially true of roller coasters.. I’m assuming they’ll also have water rides for those hot summer afternoons.

Do you have a disabled child? You might want to try Morgan Wonderland which caters to the disabled. This park welcomes everyone, having something everyone can enjoy, no matter their disability. Their newest attraction is the ferris wheel.

Have you ever been to San Antonio? I would love to know your thoughts.
