Just a casual traveler with a home base in KC.
My style of travel is active, finding fun things to do in an area or community.
I prefer B&B's or rentals over resorts...
My favorite vacation spots have been Hawaii (Kona), and Key West.
Hawaii: Trip to Hawaii (Honeymoon) in September. Looking for recommendations :-)
Hawaii is fantastic! We honeymooned on Kona, and vacationed in Maui last year. Before your trip, if you can grab the Hawaii Revealed books, they are fantastic at lining out the places to stop in each area of the islands. For Kona, I would recommend (like others) to stay... See More
Costa Rica: Driving in Costa Rica?
We are looking into vacationing in CR in December or January, it will be a group of four adults... We are staying for a week, and are debating staying in two separate locations. For those who have been, how is driving in CR? Is it easy to get around? Should we try to stick... See More
Maui: Suggested excursion for Maui's west side?
We plan to spend a day in Maui driving along the west coast, and checking out the scenery and taking in the natural surroundings. Our trip is in early November. We are saying just north of Lahaina, on Ka'anapali beach. We are considering heading to Nakalele Blowhole,... See More

Key West: Clearwater area or The Florida Keys
Key West is an awesome place for an adult-centered vacation. It's not very family oriented. Their are a lot of great things to do, but if you are interested in making the beach the center of your trip, you may want to go with the Clearwater area. We stayed at Anna Maria... See More
Maui: Best type of rental car for the Road to Hana?
We are six months out from our trip to Maui, and I am researching rental cars. We are staying in Lahaina and plan to take a day trip driving the R2H. I've read the road can be narrow, so compact cars are recommended... In the next review, people say JEEP!! Any recommendations?... See More
Charleston: Suggestions for a Mother/Daughter trip to Charleston and Savannah?
My mother and I took a trip to Savannah this past May. We really enjoyed it! We are 35 and 65. The weather was ideal. We stayed at the Forsyth Park Inn, which is a B&B along the edge of Forsyth Park. We stayed in the The Cottage... See More
New Orleans: Looking for a fantastic restaurant in the French Quarter for my birthday!
My husband and I will be visiting NOLA, and staying in the French Quarter. We are looking for a nice place to have my birthday dinner. We are good with jeans and tshirt, or dresses and jackets! Thanks! See More
Key West: Where to eat in Key West?
We had our best meal at Seven Fish. It's a TINY seafood restaurant on a quiet street just off Duval. They are only open for dinner, and only take reservations by phone, and reservations are a MUST. The seafood is fresh and delicious, and the... See More
