Dewey Point, Yosemite National Park, California

Our October hike to Dewey Point took us under towering mossy trees, some meadowlands and three stream crossings. One stream had a wooden bridge built over it which kept us all dry. The other two stream crossings had makeshift logs put into place over the stream. We managed across the streams, with only one of us getting our foot wet. The hike under trees went on for over 4 miles before we saw a clearing indicating the granite canyon ahead.  If you love hiking under trees, you'll love this hike!

Germany

A few summers ago (summer 2015), my husband got­­­ an opportunity to travel to Munich, Germany for a month long work exchange. We excitedly jumped at the opportunity to tag along and prepared to explore all that Germany had to offer.

Family Travel Budget Tips

In order to travel often, we try to keep costs as low as possible while trying not to miss out on worthwhile experiences. We travel on weeklong holidays as a family about 3 to 4 times a year.  Our typical trip nowadays usually involves a destination within United States for a week totaling $1000 or less for accommodations, flights and car rental for our family of five. Here are some methods we use to achieve a low cost but awesome travel experience.
