Motorola MJ270R Talkabout Two-Way Radios

Radios? I hear you say. In this day of SmartPhones that can almost do your laundry for you, why would I be recommending old-style radios? Well, we’re an active family who likes to bike, hike and ski and my boys are getting older but there’s still four years between them. This means that when we Read the Rest…

Mountainsmith Modular Hauler: A Rave About A Bag

I never thought I’d rave about a bag. I mean, there are legions of people who rave about fashion bags and I, in my jeans-and-t-shirt-wearing, geek gal style, am not one of those. But I have a weakness for things utterly practical – my husband likes to joke that Storables is my favorite shop – Read the Rest…

I was asked this question by many of the people I spoke to during the course of Virtuoso’s Travel Mart.

Choosing A Kid-Sized Backpack

I realize that with so many novel wheeled luggage products for children available in stores today a backpack review may seem a little misguided. But backpacks still have their place and it’s worth taking a moment to learn what to keep in mind when choosing one for your child. We love to camp, but we Read the Rest…

Travel Toys To Keep Your Kids Entertained

Last week I wrote about handheld video games, kids and travel. It seems fitting that I should follow up with a list of the board and card games which we also usually bring with us when we travel. To be clear, these are not just travel games, we play them at home and on the Read the Rest…

Handheld Video Games, Kids And Travel

My kids travel with their Nintendos I’m not particularly proud of this fact, but that’s because I have a love-hate relationship with video games in general. I love the way they keep my children entertained – sometimes for hours at a time – but I can’t stand the way they keep my children occupied to Read the Rest…

Four Tips For Finding Vacation Rental Accommodation

I was shaking in my boots (ok flip-flops) on Friday when, at the pre-arranged time, I called in to the DreamList Radio show to be interviewed by the host Melissa Borghorst, author of the Dream List series. The 30-minute interview passed in a flash and I’m so happy I had the opportunity to answer Melissa’s Read the Rest…
