Helping You Make Memories Through Travel


We want to help you find the best vacation to help you make memories with your friends and/or family. Travel allows you to make wonderful memories, just like we have with our four children. We traveled with children for a number of years. Now that they are all adults, we can still enjoy making memories.

Our blog not only includes travel information, it includes some of those memories we’ve made.

I remember one of those favorite trips to Walt Disney World. Our youngest was three years old. Our older children, their grandma, and we had been to Disney World so many times that, even though we all loved it, there didn’t seem to be anything new. That changed with this trip. We all lived it through our little one’s eyes. Everything was new and exciting to her.

Travel Protection vs. Travel Insurance

Is there a difference between Travel Protection and Travel Insurance? Yes, there typically is. Usually travel protection is sold by the vendor (the cruise line, tour operator, resort, etc.) and is limited. You may only get a credit for future use instead of a refund....

Liberty of the Seas – Balcony Stateroom
