From Alaska to the Atlantic Down My Nervy Right Side

It’s 3:26 A.M. and I’m awake. This is my new normal. There’s a shooting pain coursing down my right leg thanks to a shifted disc getting too cozy with a nerve, like a drunk guy leaning on the shoulder of a young lady at a bar. He reeks of strong […]

Ottawa

We were beat tired. Tired like the punchlines from her kid sister’s joke book. The two of us, dad and daughter. We’d completely run out of steam. After a long night and early morning of driving… After 75 minutes of hurling ourselves around a frozen curling court… After hours spent […]

If pressed, and thankfully I wasn’t by the questioner on the […]

Memories of The Burren in Ireland with Kids

Ireland with kids was lovely. But Ireland for us was complicated. As I wrote upon returning home from vacation last summer, the Emerald Isle proved something of a cataclysmic glitch in our epic U.K. holiday and, ultimately, in our marriage. We overcame, barely, and have grown significantly as people and […]

Travel Photography: Giant’s Causeway Northern Ireland

Any time your family has the opportunity to visit a seaside archeological site created by a volcanic eruption from 60 million years ago that happens to also have a pretty rad mythology behind its creation, you kinda have to get there even if it means blowing past Belfast and your […]

Cruise Port Review: The VIP Treatment on the Beach in Ocho Rios Jamaica

Sometimes you know immediately that you’ve made the correct decision. It took me about, oh I dunno, 25 steps or so to see that in choosing the Bamboo Beach Club VIP excursion during our Ocho Rios port of call stop while cruising on the Carnival Splendor this fall, we absolutely […]
