Come Dance with Me

  The first dance I ever went to my mom chaperoned. I was okay with that because at thirteen what mattered was that I got to go to the dance. Before arriving at the dance my mom told me, "Whoever asks you to dance say yes. It takes courage to ask someone to dance and you are here to dance. When the music starts if no one has asked you to dance, then ask someone to dance with you or go out and dance by yourself." for good measure my mom added, "I do not want to see you sitting around, just dance...

Neutrino employees who once worked for a controversial surveillance tech company will leave Coinbase

Last month, Coinbase’s acquisition of blockchain analytics startup Neutrino was criticized because of the founders’ ties to a controversial surveillance technology company called Hacking Team. Today Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong said in a blog post that employees of Neutrino who had previously worked at Hacking Team will transition out of Coinbase, instead of joining its team in London as originally planned.

Obese Airline Passengers: The Debate Continues in 2019

A passenger reportedly charged a fellow passenger $150.00 for taking up a third of his seat space aboard an airplane due to his being obese — despite attempts by the large passenger to squeeze himself into his own seat as much as possible. Whether that incident actually occurred or not is not the point. Rather, the debate over obese passengers aboard airplanes is as controversial as ever. “Most people don’t know it but you can actually... The post Obese Airline Passengers: The Debate Continues i...

ETW #5 Gay Travel Trends | Interview with Robert Sharp

Gay travel is a complicated issue which is why we interviewed LGBT travel expert Robert Sharp, CEO of OUT Adventures to help us better understand the latest trends and what everyone should know.

The best things to do in Ruidoso

If you ever want to disappear for a while, there’s no better place than the hidden mountain town of Ruidoso in southern New Mexico. It’s so remote that you could drive the lonely interstates 10 or 25 that slice across the seemingly endless desert of without ever knowing you’d passed it. Make it your destination, though, and you are in for a treat. Drive first toward White Sands National Monument and continue to the imposing Sierra Blanca mountain range that serves as the monument’s backdrop....

Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama

Any mention of Mardi Gras in the US usually makes people think of New Orleans. While the Big Easy has the biggest and most famous Mardi Gras party, the first official Mardi Gras in the US actually took place in Mobile, Alabama, in 1703. Mobilians are proud of being the location for America’s first Mardi Gras. So much so that the state tourism board put up a billboard outside of New Orleans stating in all caps, “You are 114 miles from America’s original Mardi Gras.” And while the wasted horde...

Best surf spot in Central America

Central America has long been a hot surf destination for Americans. It’s easy to see why. The tropical region is right in our backyard, there are direct flights, and many of the surf spots exist in thriving, yet somewhat touristy, towns that make traveling convenient and comfortable. Few locations maintain the exotic appeal of surf travel’s origins — back when surfers were explorers who set out into the unknown. But Playa Venao, Panama, does just that. It’s remote, protected, and surprisingly...
