Spending 9 days in Southern California celebrating my daughter’s graduation.  We were able pack in so many new experiences we haven’t done including snorkeling with sea lions

FAVORITE HOTEL
The Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World.  We upgraded to Club Level and having that concierge service and amenities were well worth the extra cost.  The South Pacific feel and location was perfect for us

FAVORITE VACATION MEMORY
My siblings and I were in Germany, and took a train to the wrong town. We arrived very late in this tiny town, as did a small group of Australian students. A woman who worked at the train station gift shop took us to her home for the night and returned us to the station the following morning. The woman eventually visited me in Iowa with her two sons!

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM VACATION?
I would like to take my family to hike in the mountains of Switzerland

WHEN PACKING FOR VACATION, WHAT ARE THE 5 THINGS YOU WON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT?
I pack everything in packing cubes to stay organized in my suitcase and in hotel drawers; Camera; a small empty bag to transport things to the pool, shopping, etc.; a small spray bottle I fill with water to spray wrinkles out of clothes, tame my curly hair, or mist our faces when we’re warm; contoured sleep mask to block out all the lights in hotel rooms

TRAVEL ADVICE
“Unexpected changes happen a lot during travel. But often, that change forces you to discover something else you may have missed out on had your plans not gone awry. Keep an open mind and bring along the phone number for your travel agent, just in case!”
