Oslo, Norway: One Outstanding Day (Photos, Tips, Things To Do)

When we first researched the eight cruise ports on our 12-night European Capital Cruise with Princess Cruise Line, I wrote "not as excited about this port" about Oslo. How wrong I turned out to be! In a word, Oslo was outstanding. Breathtaking in beauty. Vibrant in culture. Rich in history. Gorgeously green. Oslo's population struck […]

Utrecht, The Netherlands: University Town, Rich with History

When we first researched our 12-night European cruise and saw The Netherlands on the itinerary, I envisioned us going to Amsterdam.

Bruges, Belgium: Storybook City (9 Things To Do + Photo Tour)

Hershey, the town was originally designed for factory workers. Milton Hershey, however, had much more than economics in mind. Hershey envisioned a community where […]

Travel With Kids: Virginia's Historic Triangle (Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown)

"How do you like living here?" I asked an acquaintance nonchalantly during a summer visit to the Historic Triangle in Virginia. She leaned in conspiratorially as her face broke into a genuine smile, "THIS is the very best place to raise a family. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!" Her reply didn't surprise me […]

The county actually encompasses a very large area and includes a number of small towns, which weave into each other seamlessly.
