This year as a family, we visited Cartagena, Bogota, Panama City, London, Zürich, Paris, Venice, Rome and Milan. Closer to home we visited Niagara Falls, Niagara on-the-Lake, Toronto and Ajax.
Although we would not rate any of the hotels we stayed at anything less than a B+, the family consensus is that the best hotel we stayed at was the Park Hyatt Milan. jetBlue is hands down our favorite US airline. There is strong competition for our favorite Non-US airline this year. We enjoyed our Avianca and Copa trips, while Virgin Atlantic also treated us quiet well. Flying On Air France/HOP and BA was a mistake, Europe is meant to be done on train!
