January Recap

January has been quite busy. I re-entered the classroom, became acquainted with my students and adjusted to the workload.  It feels good to be settled.

Lately, I’ve been planning upcoming travel and preparing notes to speak at the New York Times Travel Show. I was asked by the Family Travel Association to join a panel and I gladly accepted.

This weekend, I nervously entered the stage of the Family Travel Pavilion for the panel discussion.  My husband and son were there to support me and once I started talking about my family’s love of travel–I felt calm.

I can’t wait to share my upcoming travels with you! I’ll be sure to post my latest published work on all social media accounts. Until then, safe travels.

Final Roadtrip of 2016

It has been a while since my last post, but I couldn’t let 2016 go without a final note. The year was busy and exciting for me with life events (15th anniversary) and a career shift (I’m a teacher–again!). Throughout it all, I continue to write about my love of family travel and I hope you’ve come across my recent articles and posts.

This year, I traveled to some old and new favorite destinations.  In the coming year I look forward to continuing my travels, writing more and sharing it all with you.  Before the new year, I wanted to share one more roadtrip from 2016.

For Christmas, my husband and I decided to give our son the gift of experiences. So, with mild weather, limited French and a longing to escape– we drove to Montréal. Midway, we stopped in Saratoga Springs for lunch then continued on to the Canadian border.  Once cleared, we headed to our hotel in Old Montreal.

Our few days in this beautiful city were fully booked. We took a bus tour, visited the Olympic Park, the Biodome, Planetarium and Science Center. We had many delicious meals and treats in between.  It was so enjoyable to experience French culture just hours away from home. More to come in 2017…
