It’s that time of year again: Memorial Day is coming up. A day to celebrate those brave men and women who have fought for our nation and continue to battle for the freedoms we enjoy each day. Also, it’ll be fashionable acceptable to wear all forms of white clothing, the kids are anticipating the school year’s end, the weather’s warmed up, we’ve gotten past those April showers and into the May flowers and it’s finally time to fire up the grill (kabobs for everyone!).
The summer holidays are upon us, folks. Slather on that sunscreen, grabs some water bottles, compile a radiantly carefree playlist and make some plans! We hear Memorial Day travel is on the decline this year, but maybe all everyone needs (besides some extra cash flow) is a little motivation. Here’s an idea: go sailing.
You see that fellow in the photo to the above? The one jumping into the ocean like flipper’s protégé? Well, you can’t see his face, but we’re willing to bet he’s one happy sailor, and the young lady to his right is definitely enjoying herself. All this enjoyment could be yours! Read More »
Travel Washington DC Tours
Are you taking the family to see our nation’s capital this summer? Do you have a list a mile long of what you MUST see? You should, it is a wonderful place to visit. But, the worst feeling is when you think you have so many things to see and know this means you might miss something. This really is where booking a tour is so helpful. There are many different way to take a tour in D.C.

Whatever the reason, this tour will give you a look at some of the D.C. sites and then end up at the stunning Arlington Cemetery. It will be a day to remember.
Audio Washington Tours – Do you LOVE an audio tour? Once you take one, you might never go anywhere without one. These tours have different subjects and focuses and you can pick! They are very detailed and you will have learned so much about each of the sites.
I’ve got a confession to make: I may have a “thing” for floating markets.
Here in the United States, rivers and streams are reserved for fishing, rafting, swimming and a plethora of other exciting activities. Grocery shopping, however, is not on that list. This is why the idea of experiencing commerce on-board a canoe is just plain intriguing. How does everyone navigate around each other? Is it anything like rush-hour traffic? Do they offer up samples like in American markets?
If you follow us on Tumblr, you may have already noticed we show some serious love to the floating market. You might have some similar questions,which is why we’re happy to announce our new tour, dedicated to these mercantile gems! Read More »
I’ll admit it, I question some holidays on our calendar. Yes, George Washington made serious history as our nation’s first president, but do the banks really need to close in observance?
Some people write Valentine’s Day off as a fake holiday, but personally, I welcome the abundance of love when there’s so much hate in this world. Then you’ve got occasions like Sweetest Day, Boss’s Day & Secretary’s Day (politically corrected as Administrative Professional’s Day). They work their crafty little way into our calendar each year, and because we love our sweethearts, admire our bosses and treasure our admins, we shower them with flowers, candies and tastefully clever greeting cards – yes, greeting cards.
