The Difficulty of Finding Cheap Summer Fares to Europe

Date: March 8th, 2011 | 2 comments

It’s that time of year again, when people are knee-deep into planning their summer trips. Despite the rising cost of airfare thanks to those pesky fuel surcharges, thousands of people will still head for Europe this year. It’s the kind of trip you plan for over the course of years, and for many it’s a [...]

Wanted: Vitamin D

Date: January 25th, 2010 | 2 comments

It’s about this time every year that we find ourselves dreaming of a winter getaway. The excitement of the holidays are over, the next three day weekend is months off, and summer seems years away (and yes, I realize that’s not a logical thought). What to do? Well I’m always inclined to find a deal, [...]

Romantic Getaways for Valentine’s Day

Date: January 20th, 2010 | 1 comment

True story. In November, a group of BootsnAll staffers were sitting around a table trying to make a list of holidays coming up for which we needed to line up material for our sites. We jotted down the biggies – Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years – and then paused. I jumped right ahead to Memorial Day, [...]

Holiday Travel Tips from BootsnAll

Date: December 8th, 2009 | No Comments

I know I sound like everyone else this time of year, but I seriously can’t believe it’s December. I have clear memories of the 2008 BootsnAll party – so clear that it feels like it was yesterday – even though it’s the 2009 party that was just this past weekend. Time is flying, and I’m [...]

BootsnAll is Here for You, Budget Travelers

Date: November 18th, 2009 | 1 comment

We’re beginning to hear on the news that the economy is starting to recover (or at least it’s less bad than it was), but most people I know haven’t felt any improvements yet. There are still plenty of people who are unemployed or underemployed, and – as it impacts BootsnAll – many who are postponing [...]

Heading north to see the Olympics in Vancouver?

Date: November 11th, 2009 | 1 comment

Many moons ago when my parents moved my brothers and I from Connecticut to Oregon, we drove cross-country and spent much of our trip north of the border in Canada. I don’t remember much in the way of details about the places we saw, and as an adult I’ve only managed to make it back [...]

To say that I love Italy is a bit of an understatement, and I consider myself extraordinarily fortunate that I get to write about Italy as much as I do for work. But people who know my Italy writing are sometimes surprised to hear that I write about other things for work, too. No, really, [...]

A Visit to the Philippines: Good for You, Good for Them

Date: June 3rd, 2009 | 4 comments

I’m a Europhile. I have always had (and probably will always have) a major crush on Europe, despite the fact that for years she’s sapped my bank account dry for even the shortest of trips. I’m enjoying a trip to Italy right now that’s a helluva lot cheaper than other recent trips to Italy have [...]
