A Note From Globe Trotting Brenda

Well hello again, Brenda here! 2013 has been a busy year for me and I wanted to share some of the wonderful family friendly destinations I have visited. Maybe you are making a bucket list?  Be sure to consider these! 2013 had me criss crossing  the globe & the USA to some interesting family destinations.  I tried out the new Icelandic non stop flight Denver to Frankfurt and visited my son in Stuttgart, Germany  for Christmas week.  After years of catering to him in his youth, the tables were…Read more

My Medifast Update #2 – Down 32

Family Travel In The Electronic Age

Family Travel In The Electronic Age

Should kids be allowed to be connected electronically when the family travels? How much is too much and what limits are appropriate? As a mom of 3 teenagers aged 17, 15, and 14 I have watched my kids get sucked into the vortex that is social media.  I can hardly blame them as media technology has swept over society like an electronic tsunami.  Any news item at all is followed in real time as it happens and even the most trivial post can go viral seen by millions worldwide in…Read more
My Medifast Update #1–Down 15

My Medifast Update #1–Down 15

I’ll keep this short and sweet. After a month, of eating flavored cardboard described as “nutritional food” I am seeing a lot of progress. Actually the food is not all that bad. There is some that is horrible (to me) and much of it is very tolerable to the point where I do not think of it as a chore to eat. The cardboard meals are supplements with their “digestive health pills” Vitamin B-12 and some “Super Omega 3″ fish oil pills–I hate fish…good thing they are in a pill.…Read more
What’s the big deal about gambling at sea?

What’s the big deal about gambling at sea?

If you’re looking for fun-filled vacations in the deep blue seas, then a cruise is one of the best entertainment solutions available. In addition to all of the activities and pots of call, there is so much to do on a ship; you may never want to leave. One thing that might surprise you if you have never cruised, are that there are casinos at sea. You no longer need to go to Las Vegas to gamble.  And once you hit international waters, the casinos will open. To give you…Read more
Follow Along On My Journey

Follow Along On My Journey

Usually I am a chicken and will take the easy way out. I think everyone does to a certain degree. But I am going to step out of my comfort zone here and document a significant change in my life. Over the years, I put on the freshman 15, the sympathetic pregnancy weight, and all of the other excuses one can come up with to justify being overweight. Last week, I decided that I was going to take control and get back into shape–other than one that is round! And…Read more

Tenerife: Top Three Family Attractions

Tenerife: Top Three Family Attractions

Any parent will know that travelling with kids is very different to vacationing when you were young, free and responsibility-free. When little ones come along, itineraries change and days get based around them, but that shouldn’t mean a summer holiday can’t be thoroughly enjoyed. The trick is to book holidays to suit you but plan activities to suit them. Tenerife is a superb destination choice for this way of thinking, because there’s something for everyone. From exploring the Teide National Park to lounging on the beach, you can guarantee that…Read more
