On the Trail of Fairies and Ghosts in Greenan Maze, Ireland

“I have always been a bit of a lazy mum when it comes to Halloween, but this year I have noticed my kids getting quite excited about it, and so I decided to organise something special for them. If fun but scary is what Halloween is all about, then I think I came up with the perfect plan: we are going to a haunted maze in County Wicklow!” – READ MORE from Learning Escapes

 

Hiking the Harding Icefield Trail

“Alaska is quite possibly the best place to hike in the world. Well one of the best places anyway.

The sheer wildness and diversity of the landscape coupled with the emptiness of the State make it a dream destination for nature wanderlusters like me.” – READ MORE from The World is My Necklace

 

Carry-On Only: Travel in 11 Pounds

“Packing has always been a fun experiment in minimalism for me. Hey, I played a lot of Tetris as a kid. Nowadays it’s even becoming more necessary to go more minimal with your luggage, as so many airlines’ restrictions are tightening up all the time. There are a handful of international airlines that have restricted both their allowed carryon luggage’s weight and size dimensions and also a bunch that only allow one carry-on bag. So, what’s one do to avoid checking your bag and paying fees? One lightens up. Like, a lot.” – READ MORE from Burger Abroad

 

Holiday Countdown

“When counting down for a holiday any day is a good day, especially for us the other day when a package arrived.

Trieste By Night

“The Northeastern Italian port town of Trieste is absolutely gorgeous. Once an Austro-Hungarian empire, it boasts spectacular architecture so impressive it will leave you wide-eyed (and most likely gasping loudly, like I did) at the beauty of every piazza you’ll stumble upon.” – READ MORE from The GO Fever

Swimming With Whale Sharks in Cancun

“I sat on the edge of the boat, clinging to dear life as the waves tossed our vessel about.

Casa Lomo – Toronto

“I recently had the opportunity to visit Casa Loma in Toronto with one of my closest friends. Since she’s also a photographer, you can bet we had a great time, and stayed until we were kicked out!

Captivating Catalina

“I’m not even sure how we first heard about Catalina Island. It was many years ago when we made our first visit. But once we went, we knew we’d be going back again! First of all, we wanted to share the experience with our children. And we happen to like getting away from the busy-ness of southern California, without having to travel very far or dip into our wallets for airfare.” – READ MORE from Postcards and Passports
