Our 2 day trip to UAE far exceeded my expectations.

2 days in Munich, Germany

Neuschwanstein Castle Germany

Munich, Germany

As a treat for Jana’s 8th grade graduation, I decided a trip to Germany would be a nice idea. Jana’s paternal grandfather was born in Germany and some of my family members on my mother’s side also originated there. I figured this would be a good opportunity for her to see some sites, learn about the culture and fulfill her desire to visit.  After a bit of research, I decided on Munich. Once we nailed down the weekend, we extended the invite to our other favorite travel partner, Grammy, and planning began. Continue reading

Philadelphia Museum of Art

2 Days in Philadelphia

Visiting Philadelphia, the city where one of my very dear friends (Keli) lives, was a very memorable experience.  What could be better than having your very own personal tour guide show you everything good Philly has to offer?

Philadelphia is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; it’s the “City of Brotherly Love”.  There is so much to do in Philly yet we were able to cover so much ground in just a couple days and about 3 short miles.  Keli had planned out our 2 day fun-filled adventures prior to my arrival and she did a great job.
