I've always been a passionate hostess and traveler. Growing up, airports were my favorite place in the world. Then I became an adult, got married, had 3 kids, and had to start planning trips for my family. Man, it's so stressful! It takes so long to figure out what to do, browse through dozens of websites, deciphering conflicting reviews... When coming back from my youngest first pediatrician visit, and thinking about it, it occurred to me that my best trips are the ones where I can talk to a local friend and get his/her help on finding out what's best around them.
