The Eras Tour

As some of you may remember from my last blog about concerts, I was looking forward to this summer. Two weeks ago I went to Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, Night One, in Philadelphia. I had been looking forward to this concert for months, and I can’t believe it’s already over.

City Dining

One of the best parts of living in Philadelphia is the food scene. There is no doubt that, over the last 10 or so years, Philly has earned the title of one of the best cities for food, backed up by the number of famous chefs and restaurateurs who chose the City of Brotherly Love to open their restaurant and gift Philadelphia with their delicious love language.

Maui Attractions

Near the end of our recent family vacation on Maui, we made a visit to  Maui Tropical Plantation in the Maikapū Valley among the West Maui Mountains. It sits on a former sugarcane plantation and mill and now is a working farm that raises over 40 different crops and hundreds of native plants and botanicals, with over 1,500 acres of farmland. It offers the opportunity to experience another aspect of the diverse landscapes and history of the island, with the 60 acres immediately around the plantation complex hosting a restaurant, coffee roasting house, tropical gardens, shops offering artisan goods, a farm stand store and even two zip line experiences!

Night One in Madeira

To jog your memory about my last blog, as I’m sure you are following along on my journey through Portugal, we were departing Lisbon and heading to Madeira. Early on Sunday morning we departed our Airbnb and headed to the airport, where we boarded our EasyJet flight to Madeira. Funchal Airport, officially Cristiano Ronaldo International Airport, is known as one of the most difficult airports to fly into. Luckily, we didn’t have any issues during our flight and made our way through the airport to where our rental company was picking us up to take us to their lot to receive our car.

Play in the Sand at North Myrtle Beach

Just north of the city of Myrtle Beach in coastal South Carolina, North Myrtle Beach has grown from a tranquil farming region into a prized leisure destination. Way back in 1737, landowner William Gause built a tavern that became a welcome stop for vacationers and others traveling along Kings Highway, a route stretching from Boston to Charleston. Today, this sunny, friendly beach town is a popular endpoint all on its own.
