Date: February 15th, 2010 | 1 comment

As “Getaway month” continues, it’s about time we covered the often controversial (among independent travelers, anyway) all-inclusives.

Could February possibly be any busier of a month for holidays, sports and travel? I know I was just complaining that the next three day weekend is a ways off, but February is packed with events… the Super Bowl (*cough* and our free Super Bowl ad), NBA All-Star Weekend, Carnival in Venice & Brazil, Valentine’s [...]

I Can Has Spring Break?

Date: February 1st, 2010 | 3 comments

Ahh spring break… I must confess that I never actually went to Spring Break.

Date: December 16th, 2009 | 2 comments

I was an avid reader growing up, so I had always wanted to travel to London and see where so many literary classics were written. OK, it wasn’t the only reason, but when I did a summer study abroad program in Marseilles, France, I was stoked to find the cheapest options from Portland were flights [...]

Considering Travel Insurance

Date: September 29th, 2009 | 2 comments

I continue to be amazed at some of the silly travel mistakes I make, even after years of working in the travel business and thinking about travel at all hours of every day. I know I’m not alone, as I often read about the mistakes fellow veteran travelers make, but it doesn’t make me feel [...]

Date: August 27th, 2009 | No Comments

It feels like only yesterday I was packing up and returning back home after spending a month house-sitting for a friend in Milan… And yet here I am back again, subjecting myself to the torture that is Milan in August, so that I could sign a few papers and add to my Italian red tape [...]

What can change in 14 years? In Prague, quite a bit.

Date: May 21st, 2009 | 4 comments

When I was in college and preparing for my semester abroad in England, I remember talking with a friend about a side-trip I was probably going to take with my Swiss cousin to Prague. “Prague is depressing,” she said. “Pretty, but depressing.” Turns out, she’d visited the city during a high school summer trip to [...]
