Trouble at Sea: Our Red Sea Dive Trip in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia

The Red Sea is one of the top diving destinations in the world, but Saudi Arabia is a very restrictive country to get into. That alone would have made the trip memorable...but then things went south and the Saudi Coast Guard and a hospital got involved.

Our Expedition to Jordan

Highlights included tracing the steps of Indiana Jones into Petra, following Lawrence of Arabia into Wadi Rum, and floating in the Dead Sea.

Discovering Turkey

We emersed ourselves in Istanbul, explored the white travertines of Pamukkale, and traced history through Laodikeia, Hierolopolis, and Cleopatra's Baths.

Legoland Denmark

Our first real trip with a baby was to Legoland in Billund, Denmark. Well, the visit to Legoland was for me...everyone else was on the trip was there to visit the church where some of their ancestors were married. We all have our own priorities, right?

Legoland is lots of fun, but not so much for a little baby. If you're a blond child, you will probably look like half of the visitors in the park.

While Billund isn't really on the way to anything else in Denmark for the average tourist, it's definitely worth a day trip to visit the home of one of the greatest toys on Earth and the open air gallery/museum/showcase displaying all manner of things that Lego can build. TOP:
