So while I love Moroccan food, I’d be a little nervous to go to Morocco because they might go hungry. Amanda Mouttaki, an American expat who lives Marrakech, Morocco […]
The slogan “Pure Michigan” has enticed me for some time, but a trip to Michigan has yet to make onto my travel schedule. Now I’m even more intrigued thanks to this fantastic guest post about exploring Michigan’s Great Outdoors by Dr. Jessie Voigts of WanderingEducators.com, a travel library for people curious about the world. Founder […]
With all of the surfing, hiking and general beach-ing you’re bound to be doing in Aljezur and the surrounding area, you’re bound to work up an appetite. For the self-catering types, you can check out Aljezur’s Mercado Municipal, which is located in the square just near the bridge in town. It offers for purchase fresh fish, fruit and vegetables every day.
If you prefer to let someone else do the cooking for you, there are numerous restaurants in the area serving excellent Portuguese cuisine…
A few months after I had started in my blog in 2009, Elizabeth Montalbano contacted me because she wanted to write a guest post about a life-changing trip she took to Aljezur, Portugal, to learn how to surf. Little did she (or I) realize just how life-changing that vacation would be. Fast-forward four years later, she contacts me to let me know that she moved to the charming little town of Aljezur and would I be kind enough to let my readers know about her guesthouse, Casa Boa Vista, which she rents out. Here, she describes why Aljezur is such a special place that you should at least visit it — and possibly even move there!
When my friend Felicity Loughrey told me she wanted to write a guest blog post about Fitzroy Island, my response was, “Where’s that?” She told me it’s the best resort you’ve never heard of, and that it’s good enough to bring the grandparents. There are plenty of blogs (like this one!), articles and websites about […]

Guest blogger Jill Martin Wrenn and her family (three kids under five!) had a great time visiting all of the children’s attractions during their weekend in New Orleans. But you can’t go to New Orleans and not indulge in the fabulous food, so they made sure to go to some kid-friendly restaurants that the grown-ups were […]
When you hear New Orleans, you think “let the good times roll” not “let the strollers roll.” But Jill Martin Wrenn, family traveler extraordinaire (you may remember her guest posts about Italy, Birmingham, England, and Disney World during Thanksgiving), just spent the weekend there with her three kids and found that there’s plenty for little ones — and […]
