Savannah,Georgia-4 day family itinerary

We're all undecided where to go during Thanksgiving week considering our first plan was to go in Hawaii though we can't afford two big trips for a couple months after our  Disney Dream Vacation and hubby has 1 week vacation left so Hawaii is not a perfect timing for us.  My parents-in-law come down for Thanksgiving week to spent Thanksgiving day in our home. We asked them, if where they want to go and say they have never  been in Savannah, Georgia so we researched in internet what are the top things to do in Savannah,Georgia.

              Savannah,Georgia was founded in 1733 by James Oglethorpe as the first settlement of the British colony of Georgia.Savannah is one of the top 10 Most Beautiful Places in America. 

 This trip is different from our vacation though my father-in-law can't walk longer because of his knee surgery and we have a child so all attractions we visited is more on sight seeing and tour.

   Savannah,Georgia-4 day family itinerary:
Day 1-Shopping-its not good if  my mother in law is around " shop till we drop" lol.
           Cathedral of St. John the Baptist 
           Colonial Park Cemetery  
Day 2- Paula Deen Tour and Historic 
            River Street Savannah
            Riverfront Plaza
            Roundhouse Railroad Museum
Day 3 :Tybee Beach
            Tybee Lighthouse and museum
            Fort Pulaski National Monument          

Day 4 Forsyth Park
           Bunaventure Cemetery

As we stroll the Historic District we are  impressed in their   architectural  and still remember the "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" our guide tour told us something about this movie.

Please, stay tuned as I bring you in Savannah Georgia.

So don't worry too much about finding the perfect presents enjoy the "Spirit of Christmas" like a kid and don't forget to attend fellowship. The other things I've done last year was the Christmas tree of love-where we gave some gifts to some families/kids, we don't know them but I  buy all what they need and give it back to the church, so I'm planning to do this again.

If you ask me, what I want for Christmas, I'll be honest I don't need  any material thing, what I want is  the total healing for my father as he  suffered  kidney trouble for many years.

How about you? What do you want  for Christmas?

Through Technology makes Travel easier

Through Technology  makes travel easier? Do you agree?  Whether we like it or not today's technology makes our life easier and well-organized. Imagine yourself without technology. I speak for myself, the reason why I discovered some places is through technology and  social media and helps our planning where to travel next or it will pain in the ass.

I'm happy with all the technology innovation and one I saw that caught my interest through technology we gather information, research in one corner  and  learn more opportunities in our lives that we never have before. 

Technology makes travel easier and simple  planning, we don't need to go out of our way, all we have is to be connected in wifi or have internet connection and all is done in one corner. This is only simple things but make a huge difference in our lives.
