Using Twitter as a Travel Tool

Date: July 20th, 2010 | No Comments

I confess, I missed the time when plane tickets were booked via travel agent (or even at the airline counter), when travelers cheques were the only way to carry money on the road, and when the only portable resource available to most travelers was a dog-eared copy of a possibly outdated guidebook. You see, I [...]

Summer Travel Destination: National Parks

Date: June 22nd, 2010 | No Comments

It’s finally technically and officially summer around here, although we’re still suffering from unseasonably cold and wet weather in Portland (remember this, people, next time you ask me if you should move here). I can tell from all of the “OH MY GOD IT’S SO HOT” updates on Twitter and Facebook, however, that bona fide [...]

Summer Road Trip Tips

Date: June 16th, 2010 | No Comments

This is the time of year when many people organize road trips, which makes sense. While some parts of the world experience decent weather year-round, summer is when you can count on good weather – and, in particular, good driving weather – in more places. And although a good road trip includes a list of [...]

Avoid the Crowds this Summer and Save

Date: May 4th, 2010 | 2 comments

Summer is one of the most (if not the most) popular times of year for North Americans to travel. Most kids are out of school for the summer so families plan their big trips in summer; high school and college grads set off on epic adventures before they return to the “real-world” of college, grad [...]

World Cup Mania

Date: April 9th, 2010 | No Comments

It’s unofficially Get Excited for World Cup week around here! I don’t consider myself a soccer fan, as evident of mistaking a photo of a rugby field for a soccer field this week (in my defense, the photo was really small so it was hard to see the poles, yes?). So in preparation for World [...]

What is Adventure Travel?

Date: March 26th, 2010 | 3 comments

I love adventure! Occasionally, I’m reminded that not everyone else in the world shares my enthusiasm for adventures, but I tend to disagree. To me, the beauty of adventure is that everyone has their own idea of an “adventure.” Now I most certainly don’t consider myself to be one of those Everest-aspiring hardcore adventurers that [...]

My favorite travel stories this week: Best Architecture Cities in the World Stellar photos of the gorgeous Parc Guell in Barcelona, the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, and a few more.

South America Dreaming

Date: February 22nd, 2010 | No Comments

South America is probably on most travel-related life lists. I have yet to check out the “other America,” but after spotting crazy, cheap flights to Peru last week, I’m tempted to move it up the list! There is no shortage of information about the standard South America “circuit” of sightseeing (which undoubtedly are impressive), so [...]
