WHO ARE THEY? - These are my top secret friends. I know that they are a young family with two kids under three, but other than that, I don't know that much about them. Under these circumstances, I think we're free to make up whatever back story we like. I'm going with exiled members of the Norwegian Royal Family, but you can fill in the blanks any way you see fit.

WHAT DO THEY WRITE ABOUT? - Justin (hmmm...doesn't sound Norwegian..) writes about their travels as a family, but he also writes about how to afford those travels. Their site is a great resource for any kind of travel deal or points promotion that might be going on at any given time. For instance, unless you're ridiculously knowledgeable about all things Broadway, everybody should be following his site for the Audience Rewards answers alone. Unless, of course, you already knew what theater the 1999 Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun played at. In that case, you're excused.

WHY YOU SHOULD READ THEM - You're going to save some money. That's for sure, but while you're doing it, you're going to be entertained. I follow a lot of sites that have information on travel deals, but most of them are pretty dry when there's not much going on. InACents is filled with great stories about traveling with their young kids, and despite their royal heritage, I can assure you that their kids behave the exact same as all other three and one-year-olds. Which makes for great reading.

WHERE YOU SHOULD START - Unlike my site, InACents is all neat and organized, so I'm going to suggest that you start your visit on their Deals page. Go ahead and scroll through and see if there's any great promotions that you should be sure you're signed up for. If you're not looking for deals but just for some entertaining reading, then I suggest you start with....

MY FAVORITE POST - If you've ever traveled with kids, you have to read "A Chocolate Crime Scene at the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber". I understand that the culprits received suspended sentences, but the lack of justice doesn't make the story any less funny. They should just be happy that the trial was held in the U.S. and not back in Norway. From what I understand, crimes of chocolate aren't tolerated very well in the Nordic countries.
