The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 10,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I know, I know… 6 more weeks of winter.

Now don’t get me wrong…I too am enjoying this wonderful mild winter!  Now that the famous groundhog has “officially” declared another 6 weeks of winter, aka 60-70 degree of weather.   I know all of those ski bunnies are wondering what about us?

No need to worry!  Whistler is calling your name!!!

Now here’s a combo I never thought I would mention in the same blog!  Martha Stewart & Big Bird?

But it is true!!! 

Thanks once again, to the geniuses over at Beaches Resorts, they have partnered with Martha Stewart to exclusively offer five unique Martha Stewart Crafts Studio classes using Martha Stewarts Crafts tools to glitter, stencil, paint and more, in which Beaches Resorts guests will come away with a handcrafted, personal souvenir of their stay. 

Postcard, punch and stencil fashion and glitter classes are recommended for family members ages six and up with scrapbooking and stencil fashion classes recommended for ages nine and up, but younger kids are welcome if accompanied by an adult.  All classes cost $10 each with the exception of the Postcard Class, which is $8.

In regards to the arrival of Big Bird – well it’s about time!   He joins his friends down in the Caribbean – Elmo, Zoe, Grover, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, The Count and Bert & Ernie for the Aventures with Sesame Street.

There is no better time than now to book that dream family summer vacation to the Turks & Caicos or Jamaica.

I know this is not travel related, but I feel Patrick Swayze deserves a special mention.  No, it’s not a surprise that he passed away today, but still very sad.  It is moments like this that makes me wonder…This man fought so hard to stay alive, but still was taken from us.  However, instead we are left with a piece of crap named Kanye West!

Hi Everyone!

So this is my first attempt at blogging. My goal here is to keep you informed about daily travel specials, news in the travel industry and my personal travels. I might even throw in a personal tidbit from time to time!
