Is Grace Bay Beach In Turks Caicos The Best Beach In The World? A Review.

Is Grace Bay Beach In Turks Caicos The Best Beach In The World? A Review.

One of the reasons we decided to go to Turks and Caicos for our second overseas getaway since Jacob was born, was because of all the fanfare that Grace Bay Beach had earned the top spot on TripAdvisor’s “Best Beach In the World” for two years in a row (2017/2018) AND managed to make the top 5 in 2019 as well. That’s a pretty strong case for being the best beach in the world. So does it live up to…

A Final Note On Bermuda – A Real Island Of Mystery

A Final Note On Bermuda – A Real Island Of Mystery

So it’s been a few months since Ariel and I went to Bermuda for our 4th wedding anniversary. Our plan for the trip was to just go on our first real relaxation trip since having Jacob. That… is not what ended up happening. Bermuda has so many beautiful beaches and resorts, but there’s just too damn much to see! The entire country is tiny (less than 30 miles end to end and only a few miles across at its widest…

Toronto With A Toddler

Toronto With A Toddler

So aside from our fun excursion to Niagara Falls, Ariel, Jacob, and I, have been hanging out all around Toronto. This trip is actually a big step for our little family, because this is the first time the three of us are truly on an adventure on our own. When we went to Jamaica, the whole idea was that we would be utilizing the incredible personalized nanny service at the resort we stayed at. Our 2 week trip to Israel…

Exploring Niagara Falls On The 4th Of July With A Little Guy

Exploring Niagara Falls On The 4th Of July With A Little Guy

For a change of pace this year, we decided to spend July 4th outside the US. Ariel had never been to Niagara Falls and had always wanted to go. Plus Jacob is still little enough that he gets to do a lot of stuff for free. Anything tourism-related in the USA on Independence Day tends to be zoo, and besides none of us were really feeling extra patriotic this year. So we decided to fly up to Toronto and head…

Rental Car In Bermuda Review: The Tazzari Zero Is The Worst Thing I’ve Ever Driven

Rental Car In Bermuda Review: The Tazzari Zero Is The Worst Thing I’ve Ever Driven

Let’s talk about Bermuda rental cars, specifically the Tazzari Zero. Cars have been an integral part of my adventures since before I even met Ariel. I once spent about 50 days living out of a car while driving over 14,000 miles around the United States. Nearly every trip I’ve ever been on (aside from backpacking across Europe) has involved a rental car. I love cars, I love driving, I love the open road probably more than any other form of…

Tel Aviv With A One Year Old Baby: A Review

Tel Aviv With A One Year Old Baby: A Review

Unlike our pre-Jacob adventuring days when our itineraries necessitated almost daily movement, for our Israel trip we mostly stayed at one location. Let’s face it, moving around a base of operations with a one year old means packing up noise machines, baby monitors, changing equipment, suitcases full of diapers, baby food, bottles, milk, and on and on and so on and so forth. Not a great experience. So for this trip we spent all but one night at the same…

Franklyn D. Resort: A Review

Franklyn D. Resort: A Review

During our first journey abroad (or really anywhere) with Jacob, we decided we would opt out of our usual adventure-style travel, in exchange for some much needed rest and relaxation. After spending a couple of weeks exploring possible options like Bermuda, Arizona and Florida, we settled on a place we had not really considered. Jamaica. Specifically the Franklyn D. Resort in Runaway Bay. While we hadn’t really expected to be traveling to any foreign country with Jacob before going to…
