Join our fun email tribe!

It was a tough call, however, Larissa from Changes in Latitude edged out the competition and snagged the extra entries for our favorite comment. Larissa, great use of the word fracking!

Without any further ado. Here are the contest winners.

First Place prize of $100 in Roomorama Accommodation Credits goes to Sofie from Wonderful Wanderings!

Second Place prize of $50 in Roomorama Accommodation Credits goes to Larissa from Changes in Longitude!

Thanks to all our entrants and especially Roomorama for helping us set this up. It was a fun way to kick off our European adventure and we look forward to sharing more prizes with everyone in the coming months!


For the last few months, we’ve been yearning for churros con chocolate for breakfastTurkish ice creamGreek appetizers and walks along the Italian seashore. And now it’s almost here.

We’re headed to Europe for the very first time as a family this month! No firm itinerary. No must do lists. Just the four of us, and a continent to explore.

But why should we have all the fun?

To celebrate our European adventures we’ve teamed up with the folks at Roomorama to give away $150 of accommodation credits. 

What is this wonderful and mysterious Roomorama creature, you ask?

Just one of the best websites for short term apartment rentals in the whole internet. As a family, we love renting condos and apartments. We can usually get a stylish apartment with a separate bedroom or two with a full kitchen (and free WiFi!) for less than the cost of a hotel room. Check out this beauty in Madrid, our first stop.

Not sure what to say?

Here’s a hint:  Outrageous flattery and references to ice cream, superheroes, coffee or kitten videos are all a good way to get our attention. If you can somehow make use of the words frack, mega, monkey or banana then all the better. 🙂

So… go ahead. You know you want to…
