I was in #Italy last month for the first time ever. I grew up in a Sicilian family and wondered how I would feel in Italy...many many emotions #ilikemarche   #italy   #adriatic   #heritagetravel   #tbdi2014

My least favorite part of taking a trip is packing. I'm happy my kids are older now and almost completely in charge of packing themselves! What other tips do you have for traveling families? #family   #travel   #travelwithkids   #luggage

Is #Australia  on your bucket list? After meeting several people in the last few months from Fort Douglas I'm convinced I'm meant to go visit! 
Where to stay in Port Douglas. Beautiful Port Douglas, Queensland, why go there and where to stay. A look at hotels and hostels in Port Douglas.

Great ideas! Love the golf ball tip!
Travel bloggers love to talk packing, they love to make packing lists & most claim to have the secret to the best pack. So what do travel bloggers pack?
