Ways to Alleviate the Symptoms of Jet Lag

jet-lag-action-planAs we are getting ready to take a long flight later this month and started thinking about jet leg. We’ve have traveled to Europe many times, but it has been a few years. Thus I decided to do some research and share ways to combat the effects of jet lag here on my travel blog. For those of you who haven’t flown on a long flight at 35, 000 feet, I want to share that jet lag is a temporary sleep problem that can affect anyone who quickly travels across multiple time zones.

Nebraska State Capitol in Lincoln – The Cornhusker State

 On a trip to see some friends and visit the State Capitol in Des Moines, Iowa, we decided to spend a few nights in Nebraska and check out their capitol in Lincoln.  The Nebraska State Capitol is often known as the “Tower on the Plains,” and its 400-foot tower can be seen as far away as 30 miles   Continue reading Nebraska State Capitol in Lincoln – The Cornhusker State

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza – Dallas

Sixth Floor MuseumAs I write this post, it is the dawn of a very sad day in American history. It is the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, TX. With that said, I wanted to share our visit to The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in his honor. It was eye opening and very sad. I wasn’t born yet when he was assassinated, but my mom and grandma have told me stories about remembering where they were and what they were doing when they heard he was killed. Not surprisingly, that day will still probably elicit memories from people here in the US and around the world.  Continue reading The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza – Dallas

Our Summers Spent Fishing at Mono Hot Springs, CA

Mono Hot Springs Sign When I saw the Word Press word today was Fish, I was taken back to my days as a child. Every summer we’d pack up the truck with food, clothes, and camping gear to go spend three weeks to a month swimming, fishing, and hiking up at Mono Hot Springs in the High Sierras. It was always an adventure filled with lots of fun and surprises, but always the same too.  Continue reading Our Summers Spent Fishing at Mono Hot Springs, CA

What do you Relish in Life? Experiences or Stuff?

beach-day-10-1Today’s Word Press word is Relish, so I have to ask, what do you relish in your life?  Is it the perfect job, the most amazing spouse, or the most intelligent children?  Or is it having the biggest house in the best neighborhood with the most expensive car in the garage?  I have never really been the type of person that was always trying to keep up with the Jones’. However, there might have been a little bit of desire in high school. I remember everyone always trying to outdo the next person, but I tried not to get sucked into it, and eventually it didn’t matter anymore. Continue reading What do you Relish in Life? Experiences or Stuff?

Giant Multnomah Falls on the Columbia River – Oregon

multnomah falls 1While spending some time in Portland we took a short 30 miles drive outside of Portland to see Multnomah Falls.  On the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge, these giant falls are located east of Troutdale, between Corbett and Dodson, along the Historic Columbia River Highway. This 611 foot tall roaring awe-inspiring cascade of icy water lets you experience the power and beauty of nature up close and with ease.

Adorable Tiny Dolls at American Girl Place, Manhattan

agp-bldgThe word press word for the day is tiny. My immediate thought for some reason was the miniature dolls we saw at the American Girl Place. We checked out their amazing store when we were in Manhattan last year. Not sure why my thoughts went there, expect maybe that my niece just had a baby and she looks like a tiny little doll. Then again, I am probably bias, lol. Either way, I thought about these little 18 inch dolls and decided to share our experience.

Some of the Top Underground Cities Around the World

undergroundLiving in Colorado for a few years now I have heard some of the controversy about whether Denver has an underground city. I did some searching and couldn’t find anything concrete, however I did find quite a bit of information about other cities around the world that do have underground cities. Thus, I decided to share this information and hope you may find it interesting too. If you know of, or want to share other underground cities, please feel free to share in the comments below. Here are a few of the cities I found: Continue reading Some of the Top Underground Cities Around the World

Animals Love Road Trips. At Least Our Dogs do.

 I was very happy to see the subject for our post this week – Animals.  We have traveled through a few countries,  but try to do a lot of road trips here in the US, so we can take our two little fur babies with us. Sometimes it is hard trying to find a place to stay where we can have the dogs or places where we can eat with the dogs, but it is all so worth it. We love having them with us and they love going with us.  Continue reading Animals Love Road Trips. At Least Our Dogs do.

Don’t Panic at the Airport. Here are Ways to Save Time.

airplaneWe travel a lot and I enjoy it mostly, however flying has become less enjoyable every year. There are a few reasons for this, but the main one of course is TSA. I will not go into what a pathetic use of tax-payers money this organization is (what’s the point) or how I don’t feel much safer flying, as this is not what this post is about.
