Disney World Late August 2020

Hurricane Laura made her grand appearance in our area one afternoon in late August. Our electricity is quite finicky at our house, it goes out every time it even thinks about bad weather. As usual, our electricity went out with the first gust of wind amid clear blue skies and not a drop of rainContinue reading “Disney World Late August 2020”

Disney World August 2020

Shortly after returning from Disney the first week of August we were really missing it! You can read about that trip HERE. While we were on that trip the farm got a much needed rain. A really good rain. The crops were looking good and we started gearing up for harvest, but everything was aContinue reading “Disney World August 2020”

Disney World July 2020

We were actually supposed to have 2 Disney trips in July. The first week of July our trip was cancelled due to Disney still being closed. It was a major bummer because we really needed out of the house, but thankfully they reopened and we were able to make it there at the end ofContinue reading “Disney World July 2020”

Can You Backpack Through Europe With Small Kids?

The short answer is yes, absolutely!! When we told people we were planning on spending 3 weeks in Europe as a family of 6 with 4 kids under 5 and nothing but 2 backpacks we got a lot of *unsolicited & mostly unhelpful* advice! Everyone was quick to tell us that we were crazy, butContinue reading “Can You Backpack Through Europe With Small Kids?”

Destin Florida May 2020

As soon as the farm got a big rain and Florida reopened their beaches and restaurants, we were outta here! Even though it was just a quick 4 day trip, it was a much needed break from being cooped up in the house for 2 months! Especially with our travel obsessed family! Several years agoContinue reading “Destin Florida May 2020”

Walt Disney World February 2020

Considering we’ve been confined to our homes for over a week now due to COVID-19 and social distancing you would think I would be caught up on my travel posts by now, but I am not, of course. This is the last post in our winter travel adventures though so I wasn’t too far behind!Continue reading “Walt Disney World February 2020”

Disneyland Paris

It’s no secret that we are huge Disney fans. We visit Walt Disney World 5+ times a year and enjoy every second of it! So one would think that it would be a no brainer for us to visit Disneyland Paris while in town, but that was not our plan! We only had 5 daysContinue reading “Disneyland Paris”

Paris France January 2020

If you have a fantasy like dream of visiting Paris sipping espresso and eating macaroons beneath the Eiffel Tower in a picturesque setting then I advise you to stop reading now. I too had romanticized Paris. I took French throughout school as my foreign language and was smitten with it. When cheap flights to ParisContinue reading “Paris France January 2020”

Getting Around Germany by Train

Germany has an amazingly efficient and expansive country-wide rail system. You can go basically anywhere in the country quickly and cost effectively. Your public transportation options include high speed ICE trains, regional trains, S-bahn, U-bahn, Trolley/Street cars, and city buses. Germany also has long distance buses but they are not as efficient as train travelContinue reading “Getting Around Germany by Train”

Munich Germany December 2019

We arrived in Munich on December 26 to find that the city was all but shut down. Apparently this is called the second day of Christmas and is still celebrated as a national holiday just like Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Who knew? We had planned on visiting some of the museums and monuments inContinue reading “Munich Germany December 2019”
