Your First Time Visiting Mexico City

The whole time I was planning my trip to Mexico City, my dad kept referring to it as “Old Mexico.” Is that more of a 60s/70s era thing to say? In any case, Mexico City, the sprawling second-largest city in the Western Hemisphere (8.8 mil residents), is really heating up as a vacation destination. It was a lovely place to visit last December and I … Continue reading Your First Time Visiting Mexico City

Prescott, Arizona: Explore the Wild West

Prescott is a smallish city located in Arizona about two hours north of Phoenix. We drove there from San Diego—a really unique experience crossing I don’t know how many different climates in six and a half hours.

#FBF: Dublin, Ireland (2010)

Happy St Paddy’s Day! What kind of travel site would this be if I didn’t mention Ireland on this particular occasion? Since I’ve never been there, but I’m married to someone who has, I decided to put together a little Q&A “Flashback Friday” post. It would be cool to make this a regularly occurring feature, don’t you think? Contact me to participate!  Doug agreed to stroll … Continue reading #FBF: Dublin, Ireland (2010)
