Getting Jiggy with it.

 There was a creature in our bathtub last night.  Just when I was starting to LOVE this hotel.  Apparently, New York has something called "water bugs".  Uggghhh I can't talk about it anymore.

Ok.  on to better things....learning alot this trip.  For instance, how to avoid lines and save money on tourist attractions and how to keep the kids happy without driving yourself insane. A key element?  Naps.  Even with pre-teens.  My kids haven't napped since they were 2, but this city can wipe a girl out! Also, wine for Mom is essential.

More to follow; hotel reviews, tourist attraction reviews, and lots of photos.

About Me

My photo
I didn’t dip my toe in an ocean until I turned 25 and my friend Sandy and I traveled to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. After that week, I was hooked. I loved being somewhere new; smelling the smells, tasting new food, seeing how other people lived. It energized me. As luck would have it, I landed a job that allowed me to travel all over the US and often to Canada. Being a sports event television producer, I was on the road all the time. That's when my love affair with travel began. Now, its 20 years later and still no one gets more “geeked up” about planning a vacation than I do. All I need is a destination and some travel companions and my fire is lit! I start delving into my favorite hotel sites, sifting through photos and reviews, comparing, contrasting -it’s like an addiction. The travel shows with tips and trends? I study them like a playbook. I LOVE doing the things most people hate doing before they go on vacation. Whether it be searching for a food tasting tour with a local or discovering a romantic B&B in the middle of New York - I’ve found it and I’ll share it with you. So....where should we go?
