Manufactured Fun & Fake Scenes: On my Twitter feed, I saw this article shared by @TheDealMommy: What I Saw in Paris Made Me Rethink My Job as an Influencer. This article really resonated with me. Please don’t miss out on your real vacation just to get that perfect shot! I have never gone as crazy as the scenarios mentioned in the post at the Eiffel Tower, but I admit that I’ve spent too much time on photos.
DFW Getting New Terminal: That’s just what we need, more traffic at DFW! The airport, together with American Airlines, just announced the construction of new Terminal F. See more details here. My family actually prefers to fly out of Dallas Love Field because it is so much easier to get in and out of. But, we have to fly out of DFW for most international destinations and non-Southwest flights.
Walking Off Amtrak: I just read Shawn’s post about his big delay on Amtrak’s California Zephyr due to a snow storm and crew timeouts. Such a bummer! My kids and I rode on the California Zephyr from Emeryville to Denver two years ago, and I will always treasure the scenery. My kids are asking to do another cross-country train trip. If the Amtrak Visa has an increased bonus this summer (which it usually does), we might go for it.
Best Family Resorts in Orlando: This collaborative post from DQ Family Travel lists travel bloggers’ favorite non-Disney family resorts in the Orlando area. There are so many good ones to choose from in the area. Competition is a great thing for getting better prices and amenities.
Enjoy the long holiday weekend!
