re: Cinque Terre -- tell me about your experiences - BlueSharpie
I think you will enjoy it! We stayed a few days in Matera (also highly recommended) and then took the local train over to Bari and then on to Polignano. From there, we did a day trip over to Alberobello and some nearby hill towns with an absolutely NOT recommended guide. But, other than that dude, ...

re: Cinque Terre -- tell me about your experiences - BlueSharpie
Cinque Terre remains one of my absolute favorite places on earth. We were there in July of 2017, but I researched ahead of time to be there when no cruise ships were in port nearby to avoid the crazy crowds of day trippers. We arrived by train and had no problems doing so. Easy. We stayed three ni...

re: Easy Jet flights within Europe - BlueSharpie
Sometimes we’ve flown “business class” on those types of flights (which usually includes checked bag, seat assignments, priority boarding— so you don’t have to worry about added fees) for cheaper than the regular fare on the big name airlines. I know Ryanair often has sales where business class is €...

For our family trips,we have Disney at Easter, followed by our first time going to Universal. Then we have two weeks (latter half of July) in Switzerland, followed by a short Lake Como stay. In the fall, my husband and I will do a Caribbean/Mexico trip with other couples, but that’s not planne...

re: Looking for recommendations on all inclusives in the Caribbean - BlueSharpie
We have been to a few AI’s over the years with other couples. All were adults-only, which is nice and I’d definitely recommend that for a honeymoon. Here’s a brief summary of the ones in which I’ve stayed- Secrets The Vine- in Cancun, good food, nice rooms, lots of people, plenty of activities, e...

re: Traveling and safety in Rome and Florence - BlueSharpie
We (husband, me, 3 elementary aged kids) visited both cities in July, walked pretty much everywhere, and always felt safe. We stayed in apartments rented via vrbo or FlipKey. In Florence, we were across the street from the Academia. In Rome, we stayed in a residential area right by Piazza Navona. ...

re: Punta Cana - Anyone know how bad the Zika Virus is down there? - BlueSharpie
We stayed at that very resort last October. (It was kind of a disappointment, btw...) Anyway, they had warnings re: Zika everywhere and sprays for guests to use, etc. The only time mosquitoes got us was when we went on a day trip away from the resort (which was the highlight of the trip in spite of ...

re: Birthday trip for husband- your opinion - BlueSharpie
That brings up a question that maybe some of you can answer- Will the roads be easily drivable at the end of October? If any special knowledge of winter driving is needed, I'm not sure if driving ourselves is a good idea. Anyone that's been in late October/early November remember what road conditio...

Birthday trip for husband- your opinion - BlueSharpie
I'm planning a fall trip for my husband and have narrowed it down to two options. Before I go too far with my planning, I thought I'd ask for opinions, given that he may share similar interests with many of you. He likes hiking, visiting new places, and LSU football. We like to stay in nice/safe/c...

re: Electronics ban expanding... - BlueSharpie
Yeah, iPads make flying overseas with kids so much easier. We'll be fine (if this goes into effect before our summer italy vacation) with the movies on the plane, books, notepads, etc., but, seriously- what's the difference between an iPad mini that my eight year old would be playing on and my iPhon...

re: Initial Stages of Planning my Italy Trip - BlueSharpie
Thanks for the advice (if you were indeed replying to me). We travel with our three elementary aged kids (6, 8, 11), so I have to have at least a rough plan of what we will be doing so I can make sure to include things that they would like in addition to things my husband and I would enjoy. So, even...

re: Initial Stages of Planning my Italy Trip - BlueSharpie
Sounds great! We're doing a very similar trip this July: Venice 2 days, Florence 3 days and a day trip to Volterra and san gimignano from Florence, 3 days in riomaggiore (cinque terre) stopping in Lucca to bike the city walls on the wall there and in pisa for the leaning tower on our way back from c...

re: Across America on a motorcycle - BlueSharpie
My dad drives one of his antique motorcycles across the country every couple of years in the Motorcycle Cannonball.

re: NYC with Kids - BlueSharpie
We went to NYC when my youngest two were similar in age to your children. They loved Statue of Liberty (especially the ferry ride over/ back), Top of the Rock, riding the subway, and especially Central Park. The Met was also a hit with them; MoMA was not. ...
