Great Places to Stay

Great Places to Stay

Where to stay when traveling is as important to me as the destination itself. I want family friendly lodging, something unique, affordable and fun. I put a lot of research and consideration into finding great places to stay… read all about my favorites.

Visit Cappadocia Turkey

Cappadocia Turkey Fairy Chimneys

Visit Cappadocia, Turkey. It’s a magical, historical, friendly region of Turkey whose fairy chimneys will capture your imagination. My daughters loved the idea that fairies lived inside. It was easier for them to believe the houses were for fairies instead of Turkish families. Wonderful hikes and tours abound.

Discovering Love in Barcelona

Gaudi's Rooftop Guards of La Pedrera in Barcelona

I found an old love in Barcelona. I stumbled upon him with my 7-year-old daughter. It was our Mommy Daughter Day, one of those days when my husband and I split up and each take a daughter to explore. She suggested we return to Le Pedrera and brave the line.

Quaint Gaucin Village House

Gaucin Village House

This is our first rental house in a Spanish village, and I have been looking forward to finally experiencing the nooks and crannies of these houses we’ve been walking by on the steep Spanish streets. Find out more about my real experience in Gaucin, Spain.

Visit Pompeii and Experience History

House of the Faun in Pompeii, Italy

“Mom! Mom, this is it! This is the house I read about!” My ten-year-old daughter was standing at the entrance to what was a house 2,000 years ago in Pompeii, Italy. We had come to Pompeii to experience history, but for me, the real experience was seeing it through her curious and eager eyes.

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

We are in Barcelona, home to Gaudi and his Sagrada Familia, Holy Family church. We came up out of the metro station into the bright blue Mediterranean sky and it’s there, on top of me, calling my eyes to the sky.
