Cost of smoking over your lifetime

Not that smokers walk around justifying their habit as a sound financial decision, but when you break down the numbers, it’s almost as painful as that perpetual hacking cough. WalletHub, the personal finance website that researches and ranks everything from hotel rewards programs to best cities to keep your New Year’s resolution, broke down how much it cost the average smoker over their lifetime in each state. And the answers are uglier than an eighth-grade health class slide of a black lung...

Why you need to visit French Guiana

During the 2014 World Cup , French Guiana got the geographical equivalent of 15 minutes of fame. A place a good portion of the world didn’t know existed, much less could find on a map, was highlighted in numerous maps of World Cup stadiums around Brazil, as well as the subject of a number of “interesting places to travel around the World Cup” stories in the months leading up to the event. And that was the last most of the world thought about it. It’s not the world’s fault, really. Getting to t...

Travel: No ship of fools for these cruise performers

Garry Carson has heard it thousands of times from cruise passengers before showtime: “I don’t like magic, but let’s see if the guy is any good.” Some entertainers would have bruised egos overhearing such comments, especially on a crowded elevator ride to the deck of the theater. But after 500-plus cruises over 22 years, the seafaring magician knows the life of taking an act on the road where there are no roads. “These people aren’t there because they love or even like magic,” said Carson, pointi...

Best places to travel this February

Though for much of the world February is the cold, barren home stretch of winter, it’s also one of the cheapest times of the year to travel since everyone is still feeling the burn in their wallets left by the holiday season.

Tips on travel to Antarctica

A mere hundred years ago, going to Antarctica was exclusively the realm of hardened, grizzled explorers who didn’t mind being away from home for years and losing a toe or three. Flash forward to 2019, and you’ve got ships with wine pairing dinners and butler service making dozens of trips there a year. Though getting there’s not cheap, the White Continent is now fully accessible to anyone who can afford it. But it’s still not as simple as taking a 10-day tour around the Caribbean. Because Ant...

Sun Country Grows Every Which Way

In recent history, Sun Country has been an afterthought. It was a small airline that during the best of times was marginally profitable. It focused almost entirely on flying people from Minneapolis to… everywhere. Things have been slowly changing under new leader Jude Bricker. We’ve heard Jude talk about what he wants to do, but now we’re seeing the network strategy really ramp up. “Strategy” may be a loose word. The airline’s strategy appears to be looking for any random opportunity that ...

The Gift I Received from My Birthday Trip to Italy

  My friend and former TV news colleague, Denise Vickers, recently returned from a trip to Italy with more than just travel souvenirs and photos. She brings us this reminder that travel is truly all about people and connection.    By Denise Vickers For years I romanticized about spending my 50th birthday in Italy with my husband, Mark. I had been there roughly 25 years prior with my mother and had convinced my husband that my milestone birthday would be unsatisfactory if my passport did not re...

2018: 6 Countries, 32k Miles, And Some BIG Changes

This post 2018: 6 Countries, 32k Miles, And Some BIG Changes appeared first on The Professional Hobo. While spending December 2018 at a friend’s place in Florida, I was trying to remember when I did “that crazy detox retreat” in Thailand. Looking back, it felt like it was at least a year prior. When I realized it was actually only earlier the same year, I was floored. For some reason I thought 2018 had been more sedentary than it was; I couldn’t possibly have visited six countries – including si...

The Circle is Complete: ExpressJet’s Long Journey Ends Where It Began

It has been a long road for the regional carrier ExpressJet, but the recent announcement that ExpressJet would be acquired by United (through a subsidiary) brings the airline right back to where it started. It returns to its roots as a partner-owned regional airline flying only for that partner, Continental’s corporate successor. ExpressJet began life as many regional airlines did… by rolling up a bunch of different operators into one bigger one. In this case, it was the doing of Frank Lore...

The craziest travel stories of 2018

This year may go down as the year service animals finally got a little too extra. Though we’d tolerated dogs, cats, and even the occasional mini-horse onboard planes to help keep people sane, this year’s abundance of ridiculous emotional support animals culminated with Delta banning them on long-haul flights and Popeyes offering emotional support fried chicken. But ridiculous animals weren’t the only crazy travel stories to emerge from 2018. There was also a human heart erroneously left on a ...

Best month for cheap flights

Traditionally, January is the epitome of winter misery. The bright lights and festive music of Christmas have all come down, and all you’re left with are 4:00 PM sunsets and an ice scraper to keep you warm. Tack that on to credit card bills from the holidays that literally make you avoid opening your mailbox, and it’s time for a little escape from reality. You shouldn’t let those astounding holiday bills keep you from it, either. Not that we’re preaching financial irresponsibility, but accord...

Why you should visit Ft. Lauderdale

Usually when you see the name Broward County, it’s followed by something embarrassingly Florida. An election recount, maybe. Or a TV show where police officers arrest people who’ve been using alligators in very inappropriate ways. In reality, Broward County is a seaside, tropical locale with 23 miles of coastline and a population of two million, smack between Miami and Palm Beach County. It’s a vacation oasis to millions from all over the world — but somewhere along the line, Broward got an ...

Where to see sea turtles in Florida

If you love animal encounters but don’t want to support activities that lack a conservation angle, your options for compassionate ways to spend time with wildlife may be limited — but they do exist. On Florida’s east coast, the best way to see marine wildlife in a safe, ethical, and educational way is to head to Loggerhead Marinelife Center. About two hours north of Miami and open daily, the sea turtle hospital is a sanctuary for creatures who have been injured or are experiencing health issu...
