My Night at the Museum: The 21c Museum Hotel in Oklahoma City

I love great hotels and it’s a segment of the travel industry that I pay a lot of attention to. So when a few years ago a new player in the industry popped onto my radar, I was immediately intrigued. Although we’ve seen in recent years a growing trend of so-called boutique lifestyle hotels, the fine folks behind the 21c brand weren’t just early adopters, they well and truly paved the way for others to follow. With all of this in mind it was with no shortage of excitement that I finally had ...

How to Explore Tajikistan on a Budget

Posted: 02/10/20 | February 10th, 2020 This year, I’m going to try to visit Central Asia in the fall. I’ve never been to the region and it’s long one that’s held great appeal to me. It seems raw, beautiful, and unspoiled. So, when someone reached out to write a guest post on a country there, I was excited. It was a chance to learn a little before I (hopefully) go. In this guest post, traveler and writer Paul McDougal breaks down what it’s like to travel Tajikistan on a budget. Aptly and romanti...

Storm Ciara sea foam fall in France

Storm Ciara battered most of Europe from west to east this weekend, leaving a trail of damage in its wake and some seriously shaken air travelers.

The combination of 55- to 62-miles-per-hour winds and a tidal coefficient of 100 sent high and violent wa...

Southwest Airlines Employees Won’t See Most Of Profit Sharing In Their Paychecks

All of the reporting about Southwest Airlines employees receiving 6 weeks of extra pay in their paycheck next month turns out to be inaccurate since most of the money is required to go into a retirement account that is separate from employee 401(K)s. That's good for employee retirement, but not as valuable as cash for those who want access to the funds today.
