Big Sur with Kids

This past Christmas my husband and I spent 3 days in the central California area known as Big Sur. I am sharing our travel tips geared towards travel with kids as we were traveling with a 2 year old and an 8 month old. Hope you get something from it. I welcome any questions and comments. 
The drive from San Diego is just shy of 7 hours. I know what you are thinking….”7 hours in a car with two kids! Are you F ing crazy!” Maybe, but we had no other choice. Travel by air to this area is complicated and we would need to lug around 2 car seats, still rent a car and deal with 4 total hours of security & waiting at an airport. As you can see, we just drove. Load up the tablet with YouTube videos and snacks for the road and we were off. 

Day 1
We took highway 1 from Cambria all the way up to Monterey. This stretch took us a little under 2 hours. If you are prone to motion sickness, you may experience a bit of it as the roads are one way winding, but it is GORGEOUS!

Big Sur
Stopped at a restaurant called Nepenthe. This was a total surprise. Beautiful view, bathrooms (no changing tables) a cute cafe and gift shop. The view was gorgeous and a tranquil place to stop after all that driving.

Photo opportunities at McWay Falls & Bixby Bridge.

Night Monterey
We stayed at the Marriott Monterey and had dinner at Rosines Italian restaurant . The food there was delicious!

Day 2
Monterey Aquarium– LOVED IT! I know that at almost $50 a person for adults and kids over 3 pay it could be hard for most families to go, but if you can stretch your dollar, I total recommend it! The exhibits at the aquarium are some of the best I have ever seen and I’ve gone to quite a few.

Cannery Row– The aquarium is right in this area so walking this area right after or before is convenient. Lined with souvenir shoppes, seafood joints and other cute shoppes!

17 Mile Drive/ Pebble Beach– We then headed to the start of the 17 mile drive. It is about $10 per car, but again worth it. The scenery is gorgeous which makes for awesome Instagram worthy photos. The whole drive took us about an hour or so to complete. This is with us stopping often.

Carmel By The Sea– It is just a short distance from the end of the 17 mile drive. We headed to Ocean drive the downtown area and ate at a very good Greek restaurant called Dametra.
After dinner, we walked down to the beach just in time to play in the sand and watch the amazing sunset.

Day 3

Roaring Camp Railroad- This camp is in the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park national park about an hour north of Monterey. My daughter is totally into trains so I had come across this railroad through a travel group and knew I wanted to bring her. The ride is on an old steam engine open air train which takes you up the mountain. The ride is about an hour and half round-trip. Bring snacks and check the weather. 

Santa Cruz Boardwalk– I lived in New Jersey for several years, and this boardwalk was impressive! It rivals the East Coast boardwalks. Super cute! Lots of rides and carnival game booths.

Fisherman Warf Monterey– Came back for an afternoon stroll and dinner. This pier is lined with your typical tourist souvenir shoppes and restaurants serving mediocre food.We fell for the tourist trap and had dinner here. Nothing spectacular, but again, you eat for the sake of eating and the ambiance.

Day 4

Dennis the Menace Park – Super cute and well thought of park in Monterey. It was designed by the creator of the hit TV show…no wonder it is so well thought of. It is a kids paradise! If you are between 1 and 100 you will like it. Cute view of a man made lake with ducks. You can rent little boats to ride and the park offers endless options for kids.

After a morning at the park, we checked out of our hotel to head back. Overall the trip was a great option for a long weekend getaway.

8 Tips Disneyland with Toddlers

If you are planning a trip to Disneyland and have toddlers read my tips below. I recently visited the magic kingdom with a 2 year old and a 8 month old. I admit I was a bit hesitant to go. I didn’t know if it was worth our time, money and the hassle. However, with proper planning and my tips below your trip to Disneyland can be as magical and awesome as was ours!

  1. Stay at a Hotel WALKING distance.

Even if you are only able to visit Disneyland for one day, book a hotel! There is so much to do and see that you want to take advantage of the entire day. The park does stay open late. This is the day to break all bedtime rules and have fun! Our hotel  Spring Hill Suites was 2 blocks away. We parked the car there and walked to and from Disneyland. 

2. Bring Your Comfortable Stroller.

I can not stress enough how important a stroller is… a COMFORTABLE one! I opt for my tried and true Double BOB stroller. When taking a flight I use the Uppababy G I know that thing is gigantic, but it rides so smoothly and is roomy and my kids can be comfortable in there. Not only that, but the thing is a tank and it can lug around all the crap you need to pack when you travel with kids!  Prep the day before and load that puppy up. Wipes, diapers, snacks, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, etc. 

3. Head Straight to Toontown for Characters.

Ok so Toontown is where Mickey and Minnie live… yep they have houses there and for some reason Mickey has a big’ol house while Minnie house is small :/ come on Disney! Anyway you and your kids will need to wait in line we waited 20/35 mins for each, but it was so worth it! My daughter flipped out when she met Minnie. They have a photographer there taking pics so see tip #5.

4. Download Disneyland App

So like I said they have photographers at all these character experiences and you will want to see the pictures. Well if you have the app, not only can you view the photo gallery you can and SHOULD add the MAXPASS that day its an additional $10 if you add that same day and you have access to ALL the photos taken during your visit. yup ALL the pictures instead of paying $15 each photo! Also the app you can see the wait time for rides, view a map and pre order food so you don’t have to wait in any lines. 

Best day ever

5. Take VIDEOS

Ok so since you have the app and access to photos take VIDEOS when your kids meet their dream characters! My daughter must have watched the video of her meeting Minnie like 100 times the next day! You will get a photo anyway if you do what I suggest above. 

6. Take a Mid Afternoon Break.

Even adults will need a break. Your kids will be tired and being able to walk to your hotel to take a nap and refresh before coming back to the park for the night parades and shows. 

7. Bring Snacks.

Ok so $10 for a corndog is never ok… I mean seriously Disney… I have a love hate relationship with you on this! Not only are kid friendly healthy and inexpensive snacks and food hard to find, when your kid is hungry they need something like NOW, not when you can locate it.  You are able to bring in snacks and water. 

8. Dress in Layers

So we went in December and I thought it would be a bit cold. Thank goodness I dressed us all in layers. I was sweating! Better to remove and put on clothes than to be too hot or too cold. 


Two Week Spain Itinerary with A Toddler

Located in the southwestern region of Europe, Spain offers more than just tapas and beautiful architecture to enjoy. Here I will detail our two week itinerary through Spain. Not only that, we traveled with a 16 month old baby and I was 5 months pregnant!

Day 1 Flight to MADRID- We booked direct night flights to do the cross Atlantic haul. If you are flying with an infant under the age of 2 ask the airline for a free of cost baby cot.  Check out my 10 Tips To Flying With A Baby for more details. Those seats where the cots are available provide extra leg room huge bonus!
We stayed at the Westin Palace Madrid. A beautiful historic hotel with all the modern luxuries!

Day 2- Madrid sightseeing & tour bus

Parque el Retiro, museo de Prado, Madrid Mercado San Miguel & shoe shopping at all the great leather shoe stores is my fave! Speaking of shoes. I wore a pair of ankle boots made by BORN. AMAZING! Comfortable and water proof so if we happen to have a little rain they would survive and I would not be worried about slipping. Again, I was 5 months pregnant at the time.

Day 3– Day trip to Toledo

Toledo is such a cool medieval city surrounded by water.

Day 4– Train to Sevilla from Madrid.

We were traveling with a toddler so I was not on any timed schedule… going where and when we could so I did not buy tickets in advance. When we showed up to the train station the next two departures were already sold out. If you do not mind waiting an hour, then just buy your tickets the day you are leaving if not then I suggest you pre buy them.

Day 5- Sevilla
Top places to visit Alcazar de Sevilla, Plaza de España, Cathedral de Sevilla. Sevilla is best viewed on foot and by bike. I would avoid the hop on and off busses here, but do rent a bike!  Our hotel in Seville was Petit Palace Santa Cruz.

Day 6- Day trip to Cordoba. Cordoba is less than one hour away via train. Once you arrive to the train terminal take a taxi to the main square where the famous mosque de Cordoba.

Later that evening we went to see a flamenco show at Casa De La Guitara.
Day 7- Bus to Granada
I researched a lot! On how to get to Granada from Sevilla and the best way we found was by bus. Prebuy your ticket so your seat is reserved and assigned.
Day 8– Granada
The Alhambra really requires a full day. Its gorgeous and they are super picky as far as the time you are allowed to visit the Nasrid Palace so book in advance and allow ample time to make it there on time. This is the direct link to purchase tickets

Day 9– Granada
Day 10– Flight to Barcelona
What felt like a hop and a skip away was our short flight to Barcelona. In Barcelona we stayed at the W Hotel right on the water! It is the hotel that looks like a giant sail! If you want to read more about the sights of Barcelona visit my last post from my first trip there here 3 Days in Barcelona
Day 11– Barcelona
Barcelona really feels like another country the culture there is very different than the restof Spain. No wonder so many wanted independance.  For Barcelona we did opt to do the city bus tours. I like doing this in big cities to get a good feek for the city and all there is to do. There are two companies that do these tours look at the stops each makes and select what best suits you.  Our first stop was La Sagrada Familia. Its my second time in Barcelona and to this awe dropping cathedral. Pre buy your ticket to go inside and view this magnificent work of art.
Day 12– Barcelona
We opted to head straight to Park Guëll. My daughter loved it here and so did we!

Day 13 – Barcelona
On this day we strolled through the famous Ramblas, toured the old Olympic park and did some shopping.. I mean this is Zara land!
Day 14– flight back to USA

10 Tips For Flying With A Baby

Traveling has always been something my husband and I have loved to do. Sharing with you our 10 tips for flying with a baby is important since we love to travel and never wanted to stop doing it after having babies. Together we have visited  9 countries and countless cities. When our daughter was born we knew we wouldn’t be able to travel as much, but didn’t want to become paranoid parents that didn’t travel in fear of dealing with the temper tantrum kid crying the entire flight. Yes I did fear being THAT mom. Traveling with babies let alone toddlers isn’t easy, but I can assure you it is much better than you think. I have a few tips, but for an ultimate guide please check out FLYING WITH A BABY website.
Here are a few tips

1. WAIT TO TRAVEL WITH BABY UNTIL THEY ARE 3 MONTHS OLD: This is a suggestion given to me by my pediatrician… At 3 months a baby has built a stronger immune system and also has undergone their first major set of vaccines. An airplane is a giant hub for germs even healthy adults can easily pick up a bug and get sick… Let alone a baby.

2. TRAVEL WITH BABY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN BEFORE THEY START WALKING: Once you have a little moving, exploring human being… Well… Things just become a little more challenging as far as keeping their attention for the duration of the flight. So enjoy travel during those months prior to them becoming mobile.

3. ‎BOOK FLIGHTS AROUND THEIR SLEEP SCHEDULE: Especially true for longer flights. When we traveled to Spain, I booked a nonstop evening flight. It was perfect! Babies sleep anywhere from 10-12 hour night stretches. My 15 month old literally slept almost the entire flight. Making a 12 hour flight more bearable when they are only awake for 1-2 hours.

4. ‎BRING A LIGHTWEIGHT STROLLER AND WEAR YOUR BABY: Yes… Wear your baby like as in use one of those baby carrier things. My fave is the Ergo Carrier. This way when you pass through security you don’t have to worry about taking your baby out of the stroller and having to carry them. For strollers I love the Maclaren Quest… has a huge sunshade, operates nicely with one hand and easy to fold and carry. I prefer it over the Uppababy hands down!

5. ‎WHAT TO PACK ON BOARD: On board, you will want to pack an extra set of clothes, bibs, snacks, favorite toys, bottles yes with your milk! At security they will swab it. Never let them open it up… Test should be done to the bottle not the milk.  Extra set of clothes is a must always! I learned the hard way. I had my baby have a nasty poop on a flight and there I was desperately trying to get her clothes out of my check in bag. So instead keep extra with you handy in your baby bag.

6. ‎USE FAMILY PRIORITY BOARDING: Almost all airlines and airports have a designated and usually much shorter line for check in, security and boarding. So ask and look around for this.

7. ‎ASK FOR A BABY COT ON INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS: If you are planning an international flight contact the airline as soon as possible. Not all airlines and flights offer this, but airlines such as British Airways offer a limited amount of them at no cost baby cots. Not only is this a very helpful feature… The seats where these baby cots are located have TONS of leg room. I’m 5′ 8″ and while seating in one of these rows I was able to fully stretch my legs out.

8. ASK FOR EXTRA SEAT: Get to the gate early and ask the agent if there is an empty seat next to you or if there is any way you can be moved next to an empty seat on the plane. 99% of the time they will if the plane is not full. When she was 3 months old we brought the infant car seat with us and at check in asked for empty seat. They quickly accommodated us.

9. ‎NURSE ON TAKE OFF AND LANDINGS:I don’t know if this is an old wives tale, But I did it and recommend you do it anyway! They say the motion of them sucking when breastfeeding helps them to avoid having ear pressure pain.

**When traveling abroad they will make you attach an orange seatbelt to your seatbelt and fasten the baby in it. So keep that in mind so you aren’t caught off guard.

10. MEAN PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS BE MEAN, BUT MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE SUPER NICE AND HELPFUL: One of my biggest fears when flying with a baby was that my baby would be that baby who would just cry and cry and cry the whole entire flight AND that I would have to pull a mom rage on some passenger if they happen to say something negative to me… yes I would be that mom that would have the United flight stopped because there was a fight on board! Hahahaha. What I have learned is 99% of strangers are actually extremely helpful and understanding of babies. Luckily we have not come across any negative or rude people and I doubt you will too.


Conquering Half Dome – Yosemite National Park

As spring is coming before us, I wanted to how I had the opportunity of conquering Half Dome at Yosemite National Park. I was able to check yet another item off my life bucket list… Conquering Half Dome at Yosemite National Park! What is even better? I got to do it with my fiance, my brother & his fiance!

It ain’t as fun when you do it alone. Half Dome is not for the light at heart. IMG_1179


Here are some quick facts:
It is a 14.2 miles (22.7 km) round trip via Mist Trail which is the trail we took.
Half Dome Elevation: 8,842 feet
Hiking Time: 10 – 14 hours

Why put yourself through such torture some may think?
Half Dome is the ultimate day hike you have to do before you die and you just may feel like its your last hours while doing it!

If you want to make it all the way up to Half Dome you’ll need a permit to access the cable section of the trail. This is what the cable part looks like

We went in June which is typically high season and found the trail fairly busy so plan ahead and get your permit.

Yosemite National Park has so much to offer! This was my second trip there and there is still so many things to do and yet to uncover!

How To Get Cheap Flights

How to get cheap flights is something everyone wants to do, but few people know how to. I recently booked a non-stop round trip ticket to Athens & return from Istanbul for under $700!! I will share with you 5 simple steps on what to do to help you to get cheap flights.

How to book cheap flights

How to book cheap flights

Now if you know me you know that I am very savvy with my money. I am not a cheap ass because I love to splurge and buy and live in luxury, but I also do not like paying extra for no reason at all. So unless I am traveling more than 9 hours I will 100% of the time fly coach class anything more then  see the need to sprawl out and fly first class. I just do not see the justification to spend extra when I could buy and use it for something else or help a sick kid pay for his hospital bills! Needless to say I am a sucker for scoring great flights for cheap and I will share with you what I do here.

1. Plan To Depart & Return on Tuesdays or Wednesdays    

Whether you are planning a family vacation or just going home for the holidays. If you  are able to schedule your trips for Tuesday and Wednesday departures and arrivals you can save up to $100 or more per person. Be a little flexible and realize that not all vacations needs to start on Fridays or Saturdays. If it is a matter of work days off, again see what coming in 2 days later to the office can do for you in terms of the money you will save.

2. Buy Flights on Tuesday Evenings EST

I read and researched this few years ago and discovered that in deed if I were to go online and search for airline tickets to buy on a Tuesday evening I would be more likely to find lower fares than compared to the same search on the same sites on any other night. Don’t believe me? Check out this study by found this was the best time to buy airline tickets and shop for domestic travel.

3. Use Internet Sites. Avoid Travel Agents

Who uses travel agencies anyway… right? Well I like to use sites like Kayak or Flightfox to give me an overall idea of the best prices on the market. I do however once I find certain flights that can work I end up being loyal to my Expedia or Priceline site and buy directly from them. If you haven’t done so already make sure you sign up for an account so you can start accumulating points.

4. Trade In Your Rewards Points On Your Credit Card or Earn More!

I have earned free flights or had to pay as little as $60 for a round trip ticket just because I used one of my reward credit cards to purchase it. I currently have the CitiCard Thank You Network , Discover card and American Express Travelers rewards card. Anytime I need to spend more than $50 on something I usually charge it on the card. You would be surprised how much a little does. Once I have enough points I trade them in or use it towards my purchase. ** Please note you must be responsible when using credit cards and PAY THEM OFF.  🙂

5.  The 24 Hour Rule

Once you have purchased your ticket check the fare of the same flight on your airline and all others. If you happen to find a cheaper flight whether it is on the same airline or a different one often times the airlines will allow you to cancel your flight with no penalties and you can book the cheaper flight.

If you follow my steps this will never be the case, but hey if you happen to slip once and buy on a different night, then try it out.

Hope you have enjoyed these tips. Happy Travels!

Ayutthaya day tour for under $40

If you are planning a trip to Bangkok area visiting the ancient original capital of Thailand may be something you want to do. I will share with you how to plan an Ayutthaya day tour for under $40!  With most tours starting at $80 per person this is clearly an easy way to save some money and best… do things on your own terms and time! You can accomplish this tour for much less per person should you be traveling in a group of 4. Ayutthaya was the original capital of the land known as Thailand and still complete with many ruins and a well deserved day visit, but I was not so enthusiastic about spending an entire 8 hour day with a buss full of people so I search for a less expensive method to visit the city on my own terms and time and will share how.

First hope on the very easy to use MTR and head to the National Monument easily accessible via the MTR. Exit National Monument and head towards the outer rims of the square to look for ticket stands and white minibuses.

vic monumentbangkok_victorymonument_tickets

Just ask anyone for the bus to Ayutthaya and someone is sure to point you to the right bus.
Fully air conditioned,  clean and seat about 12 passengers the round to Ayutthaya will set you back 60  baht ($2 USD). Minibus looks like this:


We hopped on and were met by a group honeymooning also from Spain a father and son traveling from France, a loan woman traveling from mainland China and 3 other locals headed back home. After about an 1 and a half journey you will be dropped off in what seems a rather shady little stop in Ayutthaya where there is likely to be a tuk tuk driver or two. The tuk tuk drivers charge $200 baht per hour to drive you around.  That is the going rate. You can try to negotiate less, but hey 200 baht is already a steal!  The tuk tuk fit up to 4 adults comfortably do not attempt to squeeze in more… You will hate yourself for it.
Although these drivers are NOT tour guides they know the area well enough to guide you to the must see ruins. You can either do your homework before your trip or guide yourself by the English written signs outside each ruin.
All the attractions have a fee to enter and vary between 20 to 100 baht.

Ayutthaya is a big city.  I do not recommend trying to view everything by foot as everything is spread out quite far.  I also do not recommend viewing by bike on any of the hot months…  Walking around alone makes you sweat as if you are in a sauna let alone peddling on a bike! Scooters are at your own risk. I found the rounds to be too risky with drivers driving however they wanted and at speeds not recommended. Best bet is to hop on a tuk-tuk and be driven around everywhere you want to go.

Enjoy Ayutthaya!!  Travel Often!

3 Day Itinerary at Beyond Krabi Resort

Our first stop in our 2 week visit to Thailand included 3 days in the beautiful scenic area of Krabi. Here is my 3 itinerary for Krabi. If you can spend an entire week lounging on the beach then that is great, but being from Southern California we decided to just stay 3 days and head to other areas of Thailand, But Krabi stayed in our hearts and we loved it!

While in Krabi we decided to stay at a resort located about 3 miles from the Aonong center. We stayed at Beyond Krabi Resort and so glad that we did. The resort is on a beautiful property landscaped perfectly and the rooms well kept and clean. The lobby is spectacular as it overlooks the Adaman Sea and the resort is fully stocked with a gorgeous infinity pool and lounge chairs. Check out this hotel!



Staying here means you are not walking distance to the Aonong downtown if you are into more of a touristic feel then you may want to opt to stay cost to Aonong. The hotels near downtown seem a little more dated and the amenities are not the same. From Beyond Krabi Resort you can easily take a tuk tuk for about 30p bhat or taxi for 409bhat. We decided to rent a scooter for 300bhat all day to go around the beach town. TIP: leave a cash deposit instead of your passport.

We rode our scooter to Aonong and then for 100 baht took a long tail taxi about a 10 minute ride to Railey Beach. I loved Railey beach! Very calm beautiful warm waters. Walk to the east bay via the main road and then walk through the monkey trail to get to Phrang Nang Bay another gorgeous beach! Here you can eat great food right on the beach from one of these little beach long tail cafe boats. Fully stocked!


Enjoying our yummy Thai chicken!!!

Second day we reserved a snorkeling tour to Phi Phi Islands which we reserved through a local tour guide located right outside of our hotel. The tour made a stop at Maya Bay where the movie The Beach was filmed and then a stop at Emerald Bay for snorkeling.. Both were breath taking!
Once we finally reached Phi Phi I was greatly disappointed… It was a run down, over crowded tourist trap. It was dirty and there was little to no charm… all the other islands and beaches were much more prettier than Phi Phi Islands.

Our third and final day we spent it at our lovely resort enjoying of Thai massages on the beach, cocktails and complete relaxation!

Happy Travels!
