Departure – 10:30pm (ouch)! Destination – Iceland (Yes)! I finally scored a work trip with good friends to this new hot spot. The destination on everyone’s bucket list.

Especially … More Iceland…tours, travel and so little time!
Milan is Italy’s second largest city. Under fog and drizzle much of the winter. Sultry and hot during the summer. When you visit will definitely dictate what you decide to do.

There are cities that always resonate with people; Rome, Paris, New York…for me I tend to forget about one of the best cities…London! Offering fantastic food and world-class museums. Family friendly excursions, think Harry Potter attractions, entertainment and shopping! The weather might not always cooperate but that’s what an umbrella is for. Meeting an old … More Perfect predictable London…well almost!

Speaking french wasn’t even on my radar. I was consumed with the details…Easter in Geneva? What will be open? What will the weather be like? How to fill our days?
