Travel Tips and Insights
With nearly two decades of destination hopping under our belts, we have travel tips and stories to share.
Like the time our flight arrived in the U.S. from Costa Rica with only 30 minutes to make our connection. They were closing down the jetway by the time we cleared customs and were arriving at our connecting gate.
We made it home, but our luggage enjoyed a nice two-day journey around the continent before making its way back to us.
Or the time our flight got delayed on our way to Disney World of all places and a member of our party got smacked over the head by an irate passenger once the plane was finally boarded.
Or the time our rental car - a "Toyota Camry or similar" - was magically transformed into a Dodge Charger at the Salt Lake City airport. Hubby/Dad loves that one.
While these amusing stories provide some great memories, they've also made us rich in travel wisdom, and as mother-daughter travel bloggers, we'll share what we learn as we learn it.
This page is where you can gain insight into smart ways to travel as well as tips to make any trip easier or more enjoyable.
