Four Things You Should Know About Crystal Cruises

Why you need to go skiing in Lebanon

Lebanon is known for its rich culture, ancient ruins, medieval architecture, and meld of tradition and modernity.

Kayak travel hacks best times to fly

Getting tips on travel is kinda like getting dating advice from relatives at a wedding. Every time you look up, someone is offering some sage wisdom about how to time it right, avoid the pitfalls, and get the most for your money, so to speak. And listening to all of it gets you so overwhelmed that you just wanna say “forget it” and stay home with a bottle of Chianti and Netflix. Of course, unlike with dating, the travel world has actual, quantifiable authorities who base their advice on more ...

Why you should visit Nicaragua now

The signs at the beach bars and hostels along Playa Santana were a little misleading. Hotels and bars that didn’t look like they’d been touched in months were promising parties, happy hours, and imminent reopenings. “Closed until summer,” said the black scrawl outside Taberna 99. It’s unclear which summer, exactly, the sign was referring to. Could be 2019. Could be 20-never. “Back next season,” read the one hanging in back of Buena Onda Beach Resort. “Next” being a relative term. “Beach party...

Five hours early to the airport? No, says Sea-Tac, shutdown hasn’t slowed security lines

Wait times at Sea-Tac haven't been much different than usual. That could change after Friday, when federal employees will miss their first paycheck if the government is still shut down.

Tofu town in Korea for vegetarians

South Korea is famous for its tabletop barbecue and pork-heavy bulgogi. While delicious, it can make dining a significant challenge for vegetarians. The solution for a meat-free fix of kimchi and tofu is to head to Gangneung, a coastal city along the Sea of Japan that’s famous for its beaches, its tourist attractions, and, increasingly, its designation as “tofu town.” Also known for being one of the three primary locations for the 2018 Winter Olympics, Gangneung might just be the best place i...

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid.

You Never Know When a Moment Can Make up for Another Moment

  A glorious winter morning, crisp clear, sunny we did not need a coat while sitting at an outdoor cafe along the port with a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice and a croissant. A Wannabe Friend came along with soulful eyes that spoke gently without saying a word. I smirked, not in a mean way, but as to say, "Out of all the people in the cafe you came by me?".

Brazilian desserts you need to try

Brazil is known for its meat-based meals, but the food goes way beyond barbecue. Brazilians know how to end a meal just as well as they know how to grill one. The country’s cuisine is influenced by native cultures, Europeans, and Africans, and nearly every meal is accompanied by a little something sweet. Sometimes that means something simple and fruit-based; other times it means an elaborate pastry made with sweetened condensed milk and loaded with coconut. Often, desserts are variations on P...

Delta Will Stop Automatically ‘Upgrading’ Elites to Extra Legroom Seats on 7 Routes (‘Temporarily’)

Delta calls moving from regular coach to extra legroom coach ("Comfort+") seats an 'upgrade' the way other airlines call coach to business an upgrade. When you buy a ticket you don't just assign yourself an extra legroom seat, your upgrade 'clears' into the extra legroom section of the plane. This process is going to create a problem on several routes beginning in March. Continue reading Delta Will Stop Automatically ‘Upgrading’ Elites to Extra Legroom Seats on 7 Routes (‘Temporarily’)...
