Hosting International Travelers: What I learned at Pike Place Market

Buy Kids a Nintendo DS Adapter for Europe Travel

We prepared thoroughly for our dream vacation to Germany last summer. Gathered over a period of months: travel books, passports, Google maps, email hotel confirmations, fanny packs, and of course, International Plug Adapters for all the electronics. We knew that nearly every day we’d need to charge the laptop, the digital camera, the second digital […]

Tube, U-Bahn, Subway – Family Travel Safety
