Dag Dag had been closed for several months for “renovations.” Now I’m not sure what was renovated, but it’s a homey little restaurant that’s run by a somewhat older couple. The husband is a jokester from the UK and his wife is from Mexico City, and somehow they came to running a fish restaurant in Cancun. … [Read more...] about Winter Break 2015 Trip Notes Part 2: Cancun And The Riviera Maya
Afterward Rafi and I went plane-spotting (After flying on some 87 flights he knows his planes!) and compared the 767 parked at the gate bound for Sao Paulo to the 777 parked at the gate next to it bound for Tel Aviv, 2 destinations that we’ve taken the family to within the past year. He made quick friends with another kid on his way to Brazil and told him about the 767 plane he was about to board. Then it was off to our final plane back home to Cleveland. On the flight home Rafi and I eagerly plotted our next trip to burn the old mileage stash on. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Eating Our Way Through Montreal

It was probably the best thing we did (and our most expensive activity) as the pictures of our little one are just priceless. I did a lot of searching and found at least a dozen places that will do a photoshoot and give you the entire DVD of the shoot with prices ranging from $150 to $600. In the end in came down to their galleries of past shoots and we decided on Wailea Photography. Just as we decided they actually raised their prices from $275 to $399. Jonelle, who is incredibly talented behind the lens, graciously honored the $275 price and did an awesome job helping set up different poses and taking pictures. She took pictures for a good 90 minutes (instead of the promised 60 minutes) and gave us a DVD the next day with over 150 awesome high-resolution pictures of our sunset photo shoot. I can definitely recommend her work, though … [Read more...] about Traveling To Hawaii…With A 5 Month Old!

I thought I’d be smart by driving past the $15 parking garage and opting for street parking a little further away. Alas the street parking had variable pricing and was $3.50/hour for the game, so all I wound up saving was a buck. But hey, a dollar saved is a dollar earned…or something like that. Plus the meter took credit cards, so I earned 3 points per dollar on my Sapphire Reserve. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: A Father & Son Private Jet Ride To Minneapolis
