Caribbean Beach Resort

Later this month, we’re flying into Orlando and driving down to Vero Beach where my parents bought a house last year. My dad lives down there full time. He is taking us to Crab Stop and the beach.

We’re then heading back to Orlando for a quick three night stay at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. Check out the pool.

We’re only going to Magic Kingdom and EPCOT as we don’t think Paul, 19 months, will be able to tolerate a longer trip right now. We booked the trip last minute, so didn’t get any reservations for Be Our Guest. We really like the lunch there. We did get a reservation for Via Napoli for dinner at EPCOT and got FastPasses for rides. I am very excited to take the baby on rides like Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover!

We also got MagicBand 2.0s. I nearly completed my collection of the 1.0s, but never did get or want a pink one.

We’re ready to go!

The Florida Keys Babymoon

I am taking my wife on a Babymoon in April to the Florida Keys after finding an amazingly priced flight last night. I was up until almost 4 in the morning reading, booking a resort, and seeing what we can get into down there. I love to travel. I also really love to read guidebooks about where we’re going. I use them to choose things to do while we’re there, find neat little places to eat, and find hidden beaches, authentic experiences, and off-the-beaten-path places.

So, I added a few books to Calibre and pushed them to my Voyage to read over the next weeks including:

I’m on a quest to read 50 books in 2015.

8, 9, 10, 11 & 12 / 50 – Key West Travel Books

I’m leaving on a jet plane…

So, I booked my flight to Seattle today. I managed to get a direct flight, with no stops or layovers, both ways, which I thought was pretty impressive for the price! I’ll probably spend the next three weeks researching Seattle and Vancouver and figuring out what I want to do once I get there. We could spend our days shopping at Target and watching movies every night and I could care less. I definitely want to hit the bar, chill out, and have a good time.

This is going to be me and Katie in 22 days!
Me&Katie

Spending my 30th out of town!

Plans are set! I am going to Seattle & Vancouver for my birthday. My friend Katie is going to host and and deliver a “day of surprises!” I’m pretty excited to go northwest, but more excited to see Katie and get the hell out of St. Louis.

I’ve been to Seattle before, way back in 1998, and I remember a little bit about the place, but not much.

Hopefully, Katie will give me a refresher tour and show me the digs.

I’m counting the days.
