Skagway Review – Discover the Yukon Adventure Tour and More

Day 5 of the cruise brought us to Skagway, Alaska. One of the popular things to do here is to go on a Tour of the Yukon. There are 2 ways to do this – either by bus or train. We decided to do the “Discover the Yukon Adventure Tour” by bus (both ways), and […]

Juneau Review – Mendenhall Glacier & Whale Quest (and more)

On day 4 of the cruise, we docked at Juneau, Alaska. We decided to do the Mendenhall Glacier & Whale Quest tour, and did the excursion through Princess. As I got off the ship and saw how many people were doing this same tour, I was worried. I couldn’t believe how many full school buses […]

Ketchikan Review – Coastal Wildlife Cruise & More

The first stop on the cruise was in Ketchikan. So this was our first real look at Alaska, even though we had seen the shore most of the day before while on the day at sea. When I woke up early that morning, we had already docked, and the picture to the left shows what […]

Coral Princess Cruise Review

As I’ve been (slowly) writing about over the last few months, last June I took a cruise to Alaska on the Coral Princess. In this post, I thought I’d talk about the Coral Princess itself, and how I liked it compared to other ships I’ve been on, and what I thought about it for the […]

Make Travel Planning Easy (and Fun) with Gogobot

Since I love to travel, I spend a lot of time planning my trips. Sometimes it’s not easy though. You have to go to one site to try to find reviews on hotels, another site to figure out what to do on your vacation, and another site to find prices and book your hotel. Plus, […]

Longwood Gardens Review – May 2012

Last Thursday I took a day trip to Longwood Gardens, in Kennett Square, PA. Longwood Gardens is just what the name would suggest…beautiful gardens that you can spend the day walking through. They have both indoor and outdoor areas to walk around. The Conservatory is 4 acres, and is always filled with beautiful flowers, and […]

Take Home Your Favorite Hotel Pillow – $25 off $50 at Pacific Pillows in May 2012

It might seem a bit odd to talk about a coupon for a  pillow and bedding store on a travel website, but in this case it should make perfect sense in just a few seconds. When you go on vacation, you hopefully stay at a hotel that is comfortable and has comfortable bedding so that […]

7 Day Voyage of the Glaciers Review (Northbound Cruise on Princess)

In early June of last year, I went on a 7 day “Voyage of the Glaciers” cruise that went northbound, starting in Vancouver and ending in Anchorage. I went on the Coral Princess, which I’ll review separately in another post. I know there are a few different itineraries that go to Alaska, and later in […]

Vancouver Review: Capilano Suspension Bridge, Grouse Mountain, and More

Before embarking on the ship to start the cruise, I had a half day to see more of Vancouver. I had done a hop on hop off tour and the Vancouver Aquarium the day before, so I had wanted to see something else, and make good use of my time. I’m all about nature, and […]

Vancouver Aquarium Review

Stanley Park is so much more than just a park. There is a lot to do there, and you could easily spend days walking around trying to see everything. There are landmarks to see, really nice gardens, family activities, and the main reason I went to the park, The Vancouver Aquarium. While I would have […]
