San Francisco is one of my favorite cities to visit. Every time we visit we see something new. Tony Bennett could not have said it better...I left my heart in San Francisco, high on a hill, it calls to me. To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars. The morning fog may chill the air, I don't care...We crushed as much as we could into two VERY full days. From the upper most hills at Twin Peaks to the Golden Gate bridge and beyond we saw it all.... read more

We are all headed out to Bali for Mary's daughter, Mariah, wedding. So included in this year's trip are our children! Before arriving in Bali, we decided to take a 2 day stop over in San Francisco. What an adventure we had to start. From fitting 4 adults and 8 suitcases along with 4 backpacks of 'essentials' into one taxi to Patrick getting up close and personal with TSA (yes, he got the full search!). Poor boy, they thought his carry on of snacks was contraband. Everything settled down after that and we arrive at our San Francisco hotel after 11:00pm.... read more

Today was all about FUN IN THE SUN! We shot the rapids, swam with the sharks, and plunged down the mayan slide. Most importantly, we relaxed at the pool.

This non-stop aquatic thrill ride features over twenty million gallons of water, incredible Atlantean themed towers, thrilling high speed water slides, a mile long river ride with rolling rapids and wave surges, and 20 swimming areas.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Today was about tough choices...visit another museum or go to the doctor. We decided on the later. Mary's cold was getting worse and Nancy rolled her ankle. The first doctor's office we were referred to was closed but there was a note on the door...of course not in English. Thank goodness another 'sick person' stopped by and told us the note was referring us to another office. When we finally arrived, there was another note...of course not in English, but it had a time written on it - 14:00. We figured we had 4 hours to kill. Since Nancy was doing the slow hobble, we decided on breakfast in the Sky Café overlooking the skyline of Vienna - delicious. After 3 hours, Viennese meals are REALLY slow, we returned ... read more
