5 Tips for Traveling with the Kids

When traveling with the kids, remember to take a deep breath and everything will be okay. (Good advice for helmet diving, too.)


Do you have a family trip abroad planned for 2011?

Why the heck not?

Too many parents get intimidated by the thought of international travel with the kids.  But it’s really not daunting, if you have the right mindset.

Here’s some advice I recently contributed to Destination Go, the blog for Go Ahead Tours



Now’s the Time for Bald Eagles in Maryland

I write a lot of content about the Mid-Atlantic region for print publications so I try to reserve this blog for the really fun stuff — exotic, or at least far-flung, travel locales.  But today I’m making an exception and posting about something close to home — the zillions of bald eagles that congregate at Conowingo Dam in Conowingo, Maryland during the fall and early winter.   

I spent an unseasonably warm day at Conowingo  last week checking out those eagles and wrote about my experience in my weekly “Native Delaware” column for The (Wilmington, Del.) News-Journal.

Here’s a link to that piece. And, okay, I didn’t see a zillion eagles but I did spot a dozen in less than an hour. How cool is that?
