August 14, 2013 69 comments

July 10, 2013 15 comments

Most of the time, when we think about “travel”, we are out and about  — on road trips, flying across countries and continents, sailing the high seas or memorable rivers, riding the rails or even hiking on our own two feet.

Ibuprofen

As Boomeresque readers know, my husband, Steve, and I returned from a trip to Hawaii at the end of February. We live in Philadelphia, so despite the curious fact that the island state of Hawaii actually has roads that are denoted “Interstate” highways, this meant our trip involved about 24 hours in various airplanes to […]
