I took the ferry today from Cancun to Isla Mujeres, an island north of Cancun’s Hotel Zone. The ferry took 15 minutes. You can easily explore the island by renting golf carts or scooters – circling the island takes about 30 minutes. The last time I was here, I rented a golf cart for the afternoon for … Continue reading
Today I am staying at Moon Palace Golf and Spa Resort in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. I have sent many, many happy clients and arranged several destination weddings at this resort. I’ve always recommended the resort based on the wide range of restaurants, bars, and entertainment. I also love their rooms – all with double … Continue reading

Cozumel is popular with divers and snorkelers due to numerous reefs that are just off-shore. Cozumel Palace is within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, a movie theater, and entertainment. The resort does not have … Continue reading

It’s Canada Day today, which is just like our Fourth of July. We biked around the sea wall of Stanley Park, crossed the Capillano Suspension Bridge, and watched the Canada Day parade and fireworks over the harbor.
Today we went white water rafting and zip lining. We also took the Peak to Peak gondola to the top of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains where we had a snowball fight! On the way down the chair lift, we saw a mother and baby bear playing in the grass.
Whistler was the site of many Vancouver Olympic events. The drive from Vancouver to Whistler on the Sea to Sky Highway was absolutely beautiful – we stopped at the waterfall where Twilight was filmed. The village of Whistler has many restaurants, shopping, bars, and entertainment. We parked the car and walked everywhere.
We took the monorail north to Seattle Center. The Space Needle is the most famous part of Seattle Center, but there is a beautiful museum dedicated to glass sculptor Dale Chihuly. Chihuly Garden and Glass was gorgeous! Seattle Center also has a cool museum dedicated to music, movies, science fiction, and pop culture. It’s called … Continue reading
Our son gets to choose our family vacations, and he picked Washington State this year.

We started the day eating donuts … Continue reading
