San Antonio's Healthy Hot Spots

Deep in the heart of Texas, you’ll find San Antonio. Home to the Alamo, Tex Mex and the Riverwalk. With tons of family friendly things to do and see San Antone is a beautiful city full of history as well as some pretty hip stuff. I had the chance to spend 5 fantastic days there, immersing myself in San Antonian culture, having been a contestant in the 1st annual Race to the Alamo! It was an experience I’ll never forget as my husband and I teamed up to form Team Healthy Voyager, taking the gold 2 out of the 3 race days!...more

Are you prepared for an emergency while travelling?

My kids and I drove to San Diego from Phoenix last weekend for a family event. As any parent knows, it’s important to have water, snacks, games and extras of EVERYTHING in the car when travelling with kids. (Ever been caught without a diaper or baby wipes? Yea, been there. Done that. Won’t do it again.) Little did I realize how important those extras would be. I pulled into San Diego just in time for the large power outage (caused by human error in Arizona, no less). I knew something was amiss when I got off the freeway around 3:30 p.m....more

The French love dogs. At least that's what I decided after viewing the final episode of “Sex and the City,” where Carrie, sitting in a café, glances over at the diner seated next to her—an enormous bull mastiff. So, when the opportunity arose to spend two months on the Côte d’Azure with a side trip to Paris for work, I decided to bring my shih-tzu, Jersey, with me. We flew Continental—our favorite airline—to Paris, where we were scheduled to switch to Air France for the flight to Nice.Jersey on the Riveria....more

Eating My Way Through My Canadian Vacation

Being Canadian and living in the United States, it amazes me that there are so many differences in our foods. I understand that some things are different since Canada has a marked British legacy, as it only gained full autonomy from the U.K. in 1982....more

Trip to Africa... Sezione Due

I don't know why I did that in Italian other than I just love the language :)So, I think I've narrowed it down to where I what I want to do for my trip to Africa. I felt like I kept getting all of these signs for Kenya. It was always Kenya this, Kenya that, etc etc, but as I've done research, I think the trip that I keep circling back to is in Ghana...more
