Experience Val d’Isère – From the TOP!

Our family has long subscribed to the travel theory that if a place is semi difficult to reach it is WELL worth the effort.

On our three hour tour of Porto we learned many things, among them that Porto, the second largest city in Portugal and one of the oldest cities in Europe, has only become a viable tourist area in the last 6 to 8 years.  When Ryan Air added Porto as one it’s mainstream stops, access to the city grew.  Poof, a tourist destination was born…

As a person who likes to grab her group and go, it should not be surprising to learn that I am a GIANT fan of the destination wedding.  The destination wedding is the ULTIMATE expression of grabbing one’s group and going.  This post is about the destination wedding we attended in Paros, Greece last summer and the amazing experience we had on the island. If you are interested in traveling to Greece, you should read this…
