Most women are obsessed with buying shoes or clothes or purses. Not me. Those things just aren’t important to me. My obsession seems to be buying luggage. About 11 years ago when I started preparing for my study abroad trip to Salamanca, Spain, I ended up getting a huge suitcase so I would be able […]
After our trip to Antarctica, Amanda and I flew to Iguazu Falls to see some of the world’s most spectacular waterfalls. Since we’re not big fans of organized tours, and had just spent two weeks on a cruise ship, we decided to make our own way to this semi-tropical region. We booked two nights in […]

The three weeks of vacation I have aren’t nearly enough for a travel addict like me. In order to squeeze more travel time into the year, I try to plan around holidays whenever practical. I decided the four day Thanksgiving weekend was too much free time to pass up, so I tacked on my last vacation day […]
