You Just Can’t Get Away From The Guinness

You can be in a remote town in Mexico, way off the beaten tourist path and there it is, right in front of you: a Guinness sign with the signature address from your home town and the iconic Irish harp logo. As my brother-in-law (who took this photo) said: “You just can’t get away from Read the Rest…

Reading on Vacation

Earlier this week, I wrote about our stay in Akumal, Mexico in 2006. This photo was taken one evening on that trip while I was reading aloud to BigB – I think we were reading from a chapter book from the Secrets of Droon series. I love how the colorful tile in our apartment stands Read the Rest…

Akumal Mexico With Kids

Akumal Mexico is one of my all-time favorite destinations for a family vacation. This is one of my favorite photos from our travels. It was taken in Akumal, Mexico in 2006. (Check out the bear in CAM’s arm – that bear truly has traveled more than most adults!) Akumal is a tiny pueblo between Playa Read the Rest…

Four Days To Pandemic

That, folks, is a picture of the H1N1 influenza virus – just in case you were wondering what it looks like. Barely a week ago, I hadn’t heard of the so-called Swine Flu and was happy in my ignorance. Since then, I’ve visited my sister and her beautiful new baby; juggled work, kids and travel Read the Rest…

In-Motion Geography Class in Mexico

Last weekend, we visited the Lake Chapala area of Mexico. The focus of our trip was to assist with a family matter and since we were only in the country for four days, our general plan was to hang out with family while the kids played in the pool. We knew that we’d have a Read the Rest…

A special way to celebrate a new family member

I’m a huge fan of using vacation rental properties for family vacations. I’ve been renting apartments, condos and houses for our vacation accommodation since BigB turned two – and we discovered that two young children in one hotel room can be problematic for everyone’s sleep needs. I’ve recommended using vacation rental properties in my WanderTips Read the Rest…

CAM and BigB in Tulum 2006

mayan ruins and water parks in mexico

It’s Photo Friday again. Brought to us of course, by Debbie at DeliciousBaby. My photos this week were taken in Mexico in 2006 (when CAM and BigB were 10 and 6 respectively). We planned our summer vacation gambling on the weather that year: we vacationed on the Mayan Riviera (the Caribbean cost of the Yucatan Read the Rest…
