One of the advantages of living in her part of Long Island is that people throw out quality,…See More

Especially traveling 18 hours halfway across the globe! The last time my husband and I traveled overseas with child, was 6 years ago when our now 8-yr old was only 2. Now that our family has gone from party of 3 to party of five, the stress level for traveling has gone up quite a few…See More

Dreaming of sunshine series part 2

SUN LOVERS HAVEN # 4  ST. LUCIAOne of the advantages of traveling to St. Lucia or any of the Caribbean Islands, is its proximity to the east coast. Just a few hours of  jetting and you’re in paradise.St. Lucia is simply stunning. Located midway down the eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, this exotic destination is only 14 miles wide and 27 miles long. On the eastern shore of the island is the Atlantic Ocean while its west coast delivers the calmer seas of the…See More
