A B-R-E-A-K is just something we all need. Whether it is a Sunday or a day off from our routine 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. punishing schedule - we yearn for it!
Just announce that the entire family is going on a holiday and we are in for a visual treat when we see several pairs of eyes literally dancing with merriment.

Don't go to this hotel and this restaurant - this one is much better and
Not all of us are lucky to know people who have been to places that we are planning to visit. More importantly - NO ONE HAS THE TIME TO HELP US WITH THE INFORMATION - RIGHT NOW! They are much too busy to help us out. They do know of people who have visited the place we are planning to go to - but do not wish to disturb them too.
So...where does this leave us? What is the next best option?
Nothing wrong with our best friend 'Google' but we know - simply know - that
