Disneyland

You might be surprised at some of these items banned from Disneyland as the likelihood is you have a few them on you right now and would have innocently wandered in. Be warned!

Disneyland is known as the happiest place on Earth, but if you try and take these things in, you will find your smile turned upside down.

Some of these banned items make sense and you’ll be grateful for the rules (I’m looking at YOU skateboarder), but some of the other things I had no idea about and could have quite easily swanned in carrying the offending contraband.

Spring Vacation Solo Travel Destinations. With my updated spring vacation recommendation, I risk being (rightfully) criticized for boosting my own home town, Washington, DC. However, it is a solo travel destination that has something for everyone. Although it can be pricey, I included some of my personal budget recommendations.

One special reason to travel in spring is that both airfare and lodg...

Travel Destination France Great Prices: France, a perpetually favorite destination, always seems expensive. As much as I love it, it is always a question of how to stay on budget, especially in Paris.  The highest price, after airfare, is always lodging.

After nine trips to France, here are the top ways I have found to save on lodging while still keeping a level of quality:

  1. Traveling off-season. This provides an immediate discount of up to 50% off. I have stayed in the heart of Paris Left Bank in a 4 star hotel for half-price. My charming guest room featured oil paintings and the style for which Paris is known. I was walking distance from everything from Notre Dame to the Musee d’Orsay...

We think all travelers develop their own packing method over time. You start to see what works for you and over time you get better and better at it as you travel more.

We’ve heard repeatedly that rolling your clothes is the best way to keep them from wrinkling. Hummm… It’s never worked for us. Maybe it’s the way we roll them. Our backpacker friends swear by this. For big items like pants, skirts, shirts, blouses, and sweaters, lay your item face down. Fold the sleeves back… get everything pretty flat and then roll the item up from the bottom.

Frankly the times I’ve used this metho...
