    Ah, it’s that time again. Time to begin planning yet another vacation (the sixth for this year). And time for well-meaning (I think) friends and family to ask, “How do you afford to go on so many vacations each year when we can’t even afford one?

    Next week my family and I are going to Arlington for a military spouse funeral. Being the teacher that I am, I want to make the most of this experience for my kids (and my parents). There will be 5 adults, a 9 year-old, a 6 year-old and a 3 year-old. I saw a sight for a trolley tour of the...

    I have been reading about people who travel lightly. Their stories are fascinating. In fact, there's one clothing company (ExOfficio) whose tagline is something like "6 weeks; 8 countries; one pair of underwear." Basically, the travel light crowd does exactly that -- rinse out clothes and...

    I highly recommend taking the Turquoise Trail http://www.turquoisetrail.org/ between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. It was a very pretty drive and really cool little towns between there. Santa Fe is beautiful! There is this tiny museum called the Tinker Town museum. It's so worth seeing...

    I’ve been researching prices for a cruise later this year and I am astounded to see how much prices have risen since we cruised last year. After speaking with some travel agents, I’ve learned that this is largely due to increases in the prices of fuel and food. The cruise lines have to pass on...

    We're looking into doing a long weekend for our family vacation this year and want to stay close to home. Dave doesn't like camping, so that is out. And Cape Cod is a possibility, but it doesn't really feel right to Dave to vacation there as he grew up there. So, any other...

    I was watching the news last night, they were saying that Air Canada just announced 2000 layoffs as well as route cancellations. They are citing gas prices as the reason. Now, the reporter said an interesting thing. Air travel is reverting back to what it once was, that is, too expensive for the...
