What Staying at the TWA Hotel is Really Like

The Golden Age of flying instantly conjures images of attractive couples dressed to the nines as they board a small jet to whisk them away in what must have seemed like no time at all. Onboard they’re served decadent meals with all the finishes and afterwards they smoke a cigarette while enjoying an after dinner drink in the plane’s lounge. The modern traveler hasn’t experienced this kind of luxury in decades and that’s not likely to change any time soon. This desire to return to a more civ...

Reasons to use an online visa service

Electronic visas, otherwise known as eVisas, have been around for quite some time now, and the list of countries that adopt the electronic visa system grows longer and longer each year.

But we already have government websites that offer this service, so why would we refer to a third-party company? The answer is simple, though. You get more ...

The best hikes in Santorini

Santorini is one of the most-visited places on Earth and certainly a favorite in Greece.

Yet Santorini, the outer rim of an exploded volcano, has a fascinating geologic history that makes for breathtaking vistas and worthwhile hikes.

Limited-Time Free Opportunity: 5% Rebate on Discounted Hotels and More

Despite marketing claims by the big chains, you can often get a better price on a hotel booking through third party websites. That's even more the case with independent hotels. What I've found is that the more expensive the hotel the greater likelihood you can find a deal through a small online travel agency website. You'll usually give up hotel loyalty points and elite status credit, but you may receive other perks. At a minimum it's worth checking before you book. Right now there's a new ...
