    The wife and I are planning a trip down to southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas in late September/early October. We're planning on hitting some national parks along the way - Fort Scott NHS, George Washington Carver NM, Wilson's Creek NB, etc. It's gonna be a leisurely "We'll leave from Kansas City and start driving and see where we end up" kind of trip. There's no set itinerary other than we'll be down that way for about 5 days or so. I've requested the usual travel guides - state of Arkansas, state of Missouri, Springfield Mo CVB, etc. But I'm looking...

    I travel to Europe every other summer. My mother is Italian and she spends about 6 months out of the year in Southern Italy. She comes from a village nestled in the mountains in South-Central Italy, in the Puglia Province. In recent years, she has indicated that the mass migration of foreigners has changed the make-up of the province -- more crime, more drugs, more trash and more people wandering about, homeless. Crime in her little hamlet had increased by 70%! I told her that I would not be visiting any European countries who have been jerks to President Trump,...

    This is a dilemma: the 4th of July, is on Wednesday, so which weekend is technically “4th of July weekend” this year?  I checked my State’s fireworks schedule to see if that would give me a clue but it looks like those communities that don’t actually shoot them off on the 4th are split between the weekend before and after. This leads me to conclude that Wednesday is the perfect day for the 4th as you can log a 9 day, two weekend holiday by spending only 4 days from your vacation bank. I haven’t worked (for compensation) for a...
  • Hillary Clinton's Leisurely Caftan Is About to Be Your New Go-To Vacation Dress

    On a personal trip to India, Hillary Clinton seemed to stick to an easy, breezy dress code. The former presidential candidate decorated linen separates with gorgeous jewelry, including one long pendant and a ribbon-clad sun hat. Hillary worked loose cropped pants and chunky slides as the foundation to her look, and she flaunted two vibrantly printed caftans that made her stand out in the crowd. With temperatures in the high 90s, it makes sense that Hillary chose lightweight pieces, but we love that she kept things modest and chic. Any passersby might have given her a nod - but Hillary's...

    If you ever needed proof that fate is real and that some relationships are just meant to be, hold onto your cynical hats. Let’s rewind back 10 years. Verona Koliqi, who now lives in London but is originally from Kosovo, was visiting a beach in Montenegro with her family. They look the classic family holiday pictures and probably thought no more about them. Until Verona, a decade later, was examining one of the photos from the beach trip with her fiancé Mirand and noticed that the little boy floating on a lilo in the sea behind the Koliqi family. ‘He...

    Blames husband Weiner for failing to notice extra $30K paymentFederal investigators formally investigated top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin for the crime of embezzlement after confirming she took a “Babymoon” vacation and maternity time at the State Department without expending her formal leave, resulting in thousands of dollars of pay she wasn’t entitled to receive, The Washington Times has learned. The probe also gathered evidence she filed timesheets charging the government for impermissible overtime and excessive hours after she converted from a fulltime federal employer to a State Department contractor. Those timecards were filed during a period of time that...

    If you were to tune into Deep State Media you would hear their continuing lamentations over Washington D.C. being destroyed by Trump. Interspersed would be breathless coverage of the Summer of Resistance and grumblings about Trump’s 17 day “working vacation” – his “fifth trip in six months” - to his own golf club in Bedminster,  NJ. Their real complaint is that they can’t all go to Martha’s Vineyard for a “17 day working vacation” like they did while covering the The Won. Indeed, the Obamas vacationed for a good part of August on this elite resort island every year they...

    New England's got a bone to pick with New Jersey, apparently. Many are coming to the defense of the Garden State after two writers from The Boston Globe penned an article criticizing President Donald Trump for breaking the tradition of spending his presidential vacation at a New England destination. Trump kicked off his first summer getaway as president Friday at his golf club estate in Bedminster, New Jersey, whereas former President Barack Obama spent his days in Martha's Vineyard. Obama is heading back there for his first time post-presidency this weekend, too. The headline of the story published Friday reads,...

    The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News. Ex-presidents, understandably and un-controversially, go on vacations immediately after leaving office. But the level of luxury the Obamas enjoy on their vacations is unprecedented for a modern-day president, say travel experts. Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali -- where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; Indonesia; a Palm Springs...

The 2nd is that if Trump were not president he could still do the same thing.</p>

Have already contacted our Senator about getting approval to tour. I'll sit back and enjoy (while writing things down.) Also tell me what to avoid. Thanks!
