  • Parrotheads Rejoice: New Accessible Oasis in Falmouth Jamaica

    My family recently went on a terrific cruise aboard Oasis of the Seas.  One morning we docked in Jamaica, not Montego Bay, or Ocho Rios, but Falmouth Jamaica.  The port was fine, but most activities were at least 1 hour away.  I was aware of some security issues outside of the port area as well.  We did not want to spend time in the bus, and my husband was not able to walk long distances, therefore we slept in and just disembarked.  We noticed a lot of vendors selling their wares, which was interesting, but a little chaotic, so we moved on.

  • 9 Tips for Grandparents to Make the Most of a Disney World Vacation

    There is no doubt about it, a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth requires more planning than most other destinations. From where to stay to what time of year to visit, there are many decisions to be made, each of them with numerous options. But with thoughtful planning comes great reward, and when you’re taking in the fireworks in front of Cinderella’s Castle, you will no doubt think you’ve been sprinkled with pixie dust.

  • Through Silence flows Wisdom: John Rylands & the British Library

    This summer I was fortunate to travel with my granddaughter to the UK. She is only 15, and I truly feel the trip for her was life changing.  I never expected that she would be so engaged in reading original ancient manuscripts from biblical 7th C fragments to the Magna Carta.

  • Surf Studio Beach Resort: Cocoa Beach, Florida

    Hello Boomers! Remember when you went to Florida for Spring Break? Well, I was lucky enough to do that in college and just ran across a motel where I stayed back in the late sixties! It’s still there and owned by the same family! I was really excited to see the place and it brought back many fun memories. Oh no, I won’t be telling any stories - what happens in Cocoa Beach, stays in Cocoa Beach.
