Adios...


By the time you read this we will be in Mexico. Our toes buried in the sand. Our fingers salty from the ocean water. Ours eyes squinting from the sunshine we have not seen since summer.

Last year, on vacation, three year old Lola learned that a hug was universally understood. That's why traveling is our thing. However, you don't have to travel far to be a tourist and experience the world around you. Become a "tourist" in your own city. How? As a mommy globe trotter I shared one of my greatest traveling secrets here on Cleveland.com.

P.S. Our torches have found a wi-fi hotel in Mexico so I will be updating daily pictures for my 365 project that you can check out in my sidebar. Right there ---------------->

Adios!
