Best hotel libraries

Even for those who love books, a good library is usually not one of the most sought-after hotel amenities. But if you’re on vacation, or even traveling for business, sometimes it’s nice to have a handy resource for downtime reading material or just a place to escape the chaos of a big work trip or family vacation. Though they’re not as popular as hotel gyms, hotel libraries are still becoming a point of pride for many properties around the world. Here are 11 you should, obviously, check out. ...

My testimony to the National Commission on Military Service

I've been invited to testify as part of a panel of expert witnesses at a hearing on the the military draft and the Selective Service System, including whether draft registration should be ended entirely or extended to women as well as men, on Thursday morning, 25 April 2019, before the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service in Washington, DC.

North Atlantic right whale baby boom

Finally, there’s good news coming from our oceans.

Orbitz will pay your travel taxes

“Doing taxes” and “going on vacation” usually live at opposite ends of the enjoyment spectrum. While saying “I’d rather do my taxes” is reserved to describe unpleasant activities like dinner with your in-laws, “having a drink on a beach in Florida” is used a generic way to describe doing anything but work. This year, Orbitz is somehow putting them together, and saving you money in the process. As April 15 looms large over American taxpayers, Orbitz is giving you a reason to get excited about ...

Visit Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach, Florida , used to be synonymous with spring break. From massive beach parties to the legendary La Vela nightclub, you probably know someone who’s had “the best time of their life” down in PCB. But now that the destination has cracked down on beach drinking and taken other measures to temper the spring break chaos, it’s even easier to have a memorable time and experience the real PCB — especially in April and May. This is the perfect time of the year to visit, as the blisteri...

Six Unexpected Places to Stay in the USA

With the United States so close to the Canadian border, you would be hard pressed to find someone who has never visited at least once. It’s right there, it’s easy to get to, and Canadians can visit with fairly lax limitations. Many go to take advantage of shopping, of the warmer temperatures down south, and of course to see the world-famous cities and national parks. The issue, however, is that the United States is a huge place, which means many Canadians who visit often end up going to the same...

Best green walls in the world

While plants and vines have always grown on walls of their own accord — and the concept of nurturing this kind of growth dates back to the famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon — vertical gardens as we see them today didn’t really hit the scene until the early 1990s. Since then, they’ve been improving air quality and adding some natural beauty to cities and urban landscapes around the world. Here, we take a look at seven of the most amazing green walls around the world. 1. CaixaForum Museum, Mad...

7 Travel Mistakes I Made in Guatemala

This post 7 Travel Mistakes I Made in Guatemala appeared first on The Professional Hobo. I recently spent six weeks in Guatemala. It was supposed to be three months, but I cut the trip short. I’ll admit up front that the reasons I left Guatemala early have little to do with the country itself; rather, I did a poor job of planning this trip and I made some travel mistakes that somebody of my tenure in this biz should have been able to avoid. But, that’s how the cookie crumbled, and now that I’ve ...

Better Deal Just Announced: $7.19 Per Day For Rental Cars Leaving Florida One Way — Spring 2019

When I first reported in this article on Friday, March 22, 2019 that “this year, the going rate is no less expensive than $14.95 per day — and that rate is only offered by Avis Rent A Car System and Budget Rent A Car System”, Hertz had not yet tossed its hat into the discounted drive-out from Florida for 2019... ...but if you are able to position yourself to rent a car from Florida and drive it out, now is the time to do so: how about a rental rate of as low as $7.19 per day for rental cars leav...

Boeing 737 MAX emergency landing

The saga of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft continued Tuesday when a plane operated by Southwest Airlines reported an engine problem en route from Florida to California. The plane landed safely, albeit about 2,500 miles from its intended destination of Victorville, California. Thankfully no passengers were on board this plane as it was being ferried by another aircraft to Southwest’s storage facility and not in service. The airline reportedly owns 34 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and has moved 15 of th...

St. Petersburg, Florida Beach Resorts: Sirata Beach Resort Review

  This winter was quite dreary in Chicago. I was looking for an affordable warm-weather escape for me and CP. We wanted a break and more of a relaxing resort vacation but when we dug into the all-inclusive resorts in places like Mexico or the Dominican Republic, it was above our budget. While those resorts and the aggregator websites tout ‘deals’ for pre-packaged trips, in my research many were still quite pricey. You can fly to Florida from hubs in northeastern and Midwestern cities for a very...

what i'm reading: jackie robinson: a biography

I finished reading this fine biography a while ago, but I've been having trouble writing about it. It was very good. If some parts were a bit too detailed for me (which is bound to happen if a biography is comprehensive), parts were thrilling, fascinating, sad, and very moving.There are many biographies of Jackie Robinson out there, but Jackie Robinson: A Biography by Arnold Rampersad is said to be the most accurate and complete. Rampersad, who has also written celebrated biographies of Langsto...

Best things to do in Tampa, Florida

Going to Florida for vacation has been an American tradition since the invention of air conditioning. But for business? Outside of Latin American finance and quote-unquote “exotic” imports, folks usually didn’t come down this way to do anything that resembled “serious.” But that’s changed in the past couple of decades, and as business in Florida booms so does the number of people who come here for work. Since the sunshine state was a vacation destination to begin with, it’s also the perfect p...

History of popular condiments

Condiments can make or break a meal. They’re the addition that saves a dry sandwich and the extra touch that spices up a bit of sushi. No matter what you’re eating, there always seems to be a condiment on the side that is there to at least improve a dish, if not save it entirely. It’s something that has been done throughout history — something that’s immediately clear as soon as you take a deeper look at where your favorite condiments come from. This is how your favorite condiments came to do...

Summer Lovin’ Had Me a Blast; Summer Lovin’ Happened So Fast

This post originally appeared on Nomadic Chick. It all began, fittingly, on the first day of summer with a game called ‘tangled’, where everyone puts their hands in the center of a circle, grabs two random people’s hands and then proceeds to untangle themselves to make a circle as this is “team-building” and “creates friendships”. It was our first day as counselors at an American summer camp in up-state New York and we were wondering just what we had gotten ourselves into. In the fray of hand g...
