Friends, Futbol and Bar-hopping in Boston: US Men's Soccer vs Haiti at Gillette Stadium

Friends, Futbol and Bar-hopping in Boston

Most of the stops on our U.S. Summer Family and Friends Tour had us feeling slightly out of our element. We weren’t on vacation, but we weren’t working, either. Things were the same, but different. Our two-day stop in Boston, however, was like taking a page out of Weekends From Our Past, complete with friends, a sporting event and bar hopping.… Read the rest

No better way to spend a Sunday in London than on a boat ride down the River Thames.

How to spend a Sunday in London

Tradition, royal, proper. These are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of London. Keen on experiencing a Sunday in London with those words in mind, we attended a service at Westminster Abbey, sat down to a proper Sunday roast and spent the afternoon voyaging down the River Thames.… Read the rest

Sightseeing in Dalat, Vietnam: 6 things to see

When we chose a four-day stopover in Dalat as part of our three-week journey through Vietnam, we did it based on a single reason: the promise of cool, mountain weather. We didn’t care about the sights or tours or food, we just wanted to escape the heat.… Read the rest

Day Trip from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise: How To Get There

The skyline of Surfers Paradise is clearly visible when looking north across the water from Coolangatta Beach. The iconic Q1 Building is the most recognizable as it pierces the sky at 230 meters. After spending a week in Cooly, it was high time we took a day trip from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise to check out the oceanfront skyscrapers that give a big city feel to the Gold Coast.… Read the rest

A Sunday in Wellington, New Zealand at Te Papa Museum JetSetting Fools

Sunday market and Te Papa Museum in Wellington

On our last full day in Wellington we wanted to roam the city. We no longer needed to look at a map, we knew our way around. We didn’t, however, know where we were going. It was a Sunday and rainstorms were threatening, so things were a little quieter than we’d seen them during the week.Read the rest

Exploring Punta del Diablo Uruguay JetSetting Fools

Exploring Punta del Diablo

I stepped off the 4-hour bus ride from Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, directly into the different world of Punta del Diablo. Within seconds, I fell head over heels in love. I could hear the roaring ocean on my right, which, since many of the dirt roads don’t have street signs, would serve as a compass for the next two weeks while exploring Punta del Diablo.… Read the rest

The morning after a pub crawl is never greeted bright-eyed and bushy tailed, and our morning after the Flagstaff Ale Trail was no exception. What was worse was the daunting task of the road trip south on I-17 back to Phoenix.… Read the rest

Our interest in locally crafted beer is what led us to the Flagstaff Ale Trail pub crawl. The official $6 Passport isn’t necessary, but it does offer discounts, introduces you to places you might not otherwise go, supports the local community and, besides all that, you get a fun, stamped souvenir.… Read the rest

Over the years, I have had many “Perfect” San Francisco Weekends. From our first visit when I discovered the Sea Lions on Pier 39 to the weekend we sneaked off to get married to a birthday celebration with friends. But, this past trip ranks as our most perfect San Francisco weekend.… Read the rest
