November 3, 2018, Hartford, Connecticut For once, I got up when I actually anticipated. I think it's because of scheduled itinerary; if I have to be somewhere at a certain time, subconsciously my mind and body make sure I perform in that acquired, timely fashion. Due to that performance, I headed back down to Connecticut … Continue reading Golden Shades of Twain
Today's only stamped itinerary was Madame Tussaud's at noon. At least that was the slot I planned to get in. I got there a little early so, like at the London Eye, I had to wait just before it was appropriate to get to the specified line. But I was in there within two minutes. … Continue reading Timeless Figures with Labels
Day Two: October 21, 2018, London, England To make a commitment to various spots on your travels, I honestly think it helps when they're booked in advance. Flights and hotels aside, of course, as they are deemed mandatory. I say this because if certain attractions weren't scheduled online ahead of time, I, particularly, may have … Continue reading The Tower & The Stage
Hey it's Katie. I'm back from London and each post will be a day-by-day account. So here goes...

When planning a trip, it often comes up at the end of a booking process... Trip Protection. It may seem an unnecessary expense when you consider what has already been paid towards a trip, however in the end it may prove a worthy investment when you consider what might be lost in the event of … Continue reading Travel Protection: Do I really need it?
Bittersweet. If I had to choose one word to best describe this next adventure, that would be it. New beginnings. It means closing a chapter and starting a new one, but sometimes it comes with some tears. This next Sunday, the two of us will embark on a road trip of nearly 800 miles from … Continue reading Adventure: Road trippin’ to Boston
You have your perfect carry-on packed and you settle into your seat for a long-haul flight. You pass the time napping, or reading, listening to music or watching the in-flight film. Hours later, you arrive at your destination, looking a little worse for wear with disheveled and flat hair, next day breath and slightly greasy … Continue reading Avoid the jet-lagged look!
