For anyone who has traveled to England before, I am sure you are all aware of the stereotypical tourist spots such as London, Manchester, Cambridge, Oxford, The Cotswolds and Stonehenge. However, one of the lesser well known spots is located just off the south coastline of England and this really is a true 'hidden gem in the English Channel'...
As an avid golfer, every year I anxiously await the PGA Tour schedule to be released so that I can plot which tournaments I can visit. This year was no different and after visiting the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial CC in Fort Worth, TX which unfortunately had a rather disappointing field, I hoped that my second tournament of...
Rather than focusing solely on our thoughts, we want to involve fellow travel bloggers and one of our new features to achieve this will include interviews with some of our blogging friends. We want to create a community where everyone can share their ideas and what better way to do this than to learn about the best travel bloggers out...
One of the highlights of our trip to San Francisco was visiting the island of Alcatraz! The island is of course famous for the prison, but it also has other key characteristics that made this famous as a fort, a natural habitat and a Native American homeland. The tour begins on land as you embark on the Alcatraz Cruise which...
Before traveling to San Francisco, we decided to either venture north to the wine valleys of Napa and Sonoma or head away from the coast inland to Yosemite National Park. I am not sure what the eventual determining factor was but we opted for the latter and prepared a route from San Francisco that saw us first head south...
Seattle, Washington is one city that we are really hoping to visit in the near future (hopefully at some point during 2014). We are excited about the opportunities available here and the fact it is in close proximity to the Canadian border so you could make a bigger trip out of this by crossing over into Canada. As we have...
A vacation or trip to San Francisco would not be the same without visiting Fisherman's Wharf and in particular Pier 39. If you are staying in the downtown area as we were, such as on Union Square, you have two recommended options of accessing the Wharf area and I have to admit that both of these are viable choices...
When you think about San Francisco you probably all consider the likes of the Golden Gate Bridge, the beautiful San Fran Bay Area, the Wharf, Alcatraz or nearby places such as Napa Valley, Yosemite or Pebble Beach? Well you are not the only ones that think like that because these are all areas we are excited about visiting in the...
Is there anything better than taking a random trip somewhere on a long weekend break? We love just being spontaneous and leaving it until the last minute to take trips. Of course, when you are looking at international travel, for the most part you need to plan in advance because you are likely going to need to take time...
Following up on our other post regarding the National Mall in Washington DC, we had a great experience visiting a number of FREE (yes that's right, the majority of museums in the Mall in DC are free of charge) museums. Truth be told, you could probably spend at least half a day or maybe even a full day if...
