By JEANNIE WONG SACRAMENTO — This is a portion of what I wrote on Sunday afternoon while sitting in the Orlando airport: Going home! After five days and four nights at Disney World, we are pointing ourselves back toward Northern California. Although tired, my girls are rallying over the smalle.../ ➝

Where would you go, if you HAD to go? It’s a question guaranteed to come to your mind at least once in your life — and if you’re black, probably more than once: If, for whatever reason, I couldn’t live here anymore, where would I live? Where could I live? The same question fa.../ ➝

By JEANNIE WONG ORLANDO — In childhood parlance, we got a do-over. The days are back to being sunny and bright, with no signs of the thunderstorm that had chased us away, sopping (but surprisingly happy), from the Magic Kingdom earlier this week.

By JEANNIE WONG ORLANDO, Fl. — Well, that wasn’t so bad. After five hours-plus across country, we landed in Orlando at 9:30 p.m. Eastern time with two tired but extremely happy little girls. They were so cheery, in fact, that they had refused to be beaten by the cramped and crowded plane.../ ➝

By JEANNIE WONG SACRAMENTO, Ca. — Let me start by saying that, since having kids, I’ve become a travel weenie. I’d heard all the stories and, admit it, you have, too: The tantrums! The inconsolable crying! The nasty looks! And that’s just between the parents. Of course, I sal.../ ➝

Renting apartment or homes can be a great alternative to hotels, but if you’re one of those who ignores the details, you could be in for a hell of a time — and not in a good way. Early on in the founding this blog, I wrote about the pleasures of vacation rental apartments over […].../ ➝

Our newest guest columnist is a veteran journalist and mother of twins who used to travel quite a bit. And then, well…twins! After leaving her full-time job as a newspaper editor to spend more time with her family, however, there were no more excuses. So last summer, she and her husband strapp.../ ➝
