This is the last weekend before school starts!  We are going to Pittsburgh for a long weekend to celebrate Jack's graduation to middle school.  He wants to go to a Pirates game and I want to tour Fallingwater.  In the meantime, here are some places I am wandering to on the web...

We are definitely including some of these recommendations in our plans this weekend.

I seem to be reading about Mexico City everywhere, most recently here

Love this monthly update on new places to eat.

Road trip around New Zealand in a vintage VW van?  I'm in!

As someone who recently bought new luggage, I think this is a great idea.

We are headed to the Berkshires tomorrow to check out the Van Gogh exhibit at the Clark Art Institute and to get in some hiking.  We may even try to grab lunch at one of our favorite spots.  And here are some spots I am wandering to on the web...

Loved this piece, especially considering we just had our own bat-related rabies scare.

Great tips on finding cheap airfare.  I will definitely be checking out XL Airways the next time I am looking for a flight to Paris.

This family has the right idea when it comes to traveling.  I relied on their Paris tip sheet heavily when we were planning our trip.

Am editing my carry-on checklist to include all of these things

Bookmarking these for restaurant ideas in the future.

Dreaming of tulips and spring.  And here is where I am wandering to on the web...

Five luxury vacations for families.  I have my eye on Nicaragua.

Will definitely be taking along some of these the next time we travel.

The High Line, phase three.  We want to walk the whole thing once it warms up a little.

Pizza is always a favorite with the kids when we travel.

Great ideas for what to pack in a kid's carry-on.
