Is this mistake hurting your hotel tech sales? | By Jeremiah Magone

If sales haven't been as strong as you'd hoped in 2018, there are probably as many reasons for that as there are ads on the Internet… But over the past 6 years, as a copywriter and marketing strategist for hospitality tech companies, I've found that a lack in sales generally comes down to one key problem: sending the right message, but at the wrong time. The big problem with this is - if you don't address that issue first, you're going to keep struggling. Because even if you have the be...

Norwegian liquor travels the world

People have different definitions of what it means to be well-traveled. For some, it means a big portion of your time is spent exploring new places. To others, it simply means racking up passport stamps. Every drop of Linie Aquavit, a spirit from Norway, is well-traveled regardless of how you define it. In fact, all of the Linie sold since 1821 has seen more of the world than the vast majority of humans. Before being bottled, Linie is aged in 500-liter barrels that previously held Oloroso she...

The healthiest countries to move to

Being healthier is one of the most popular of New Year’s resolutions. For some, this may include making big life changes — like moving — that make it easier to get and stay healthy. And healthy places aren’t just those with lots of gyms and juice bars. Places to make lifestyle changes are those that share a worldview of health — where physical health is important but so are access to outdoor activities, mental health, low-stress levels, fresh food, quality healthcare, and strong, supportive ...

Japan's New 'Sayonara' Tax on Travelers Is Here

Thanks to a bevy of flight deals and new routes, it's now easier than ever to get to Japan — but it also just got slightly more expensive to leave the country once you've had your fill of Tokyo sushi, Okinawa beaches, and Kyoto temples. On Monday, the country began collecting a "sayonara" tax from visitors. The new fee of ¥1,000 ($9.23) will be tacked onto plane and ship transportation fares of all passengers when booking, regardless of nationality.

Travel News: January 11, 2019

Air France leans toward pulling plug on Joon Travel Weekly Joon, the Air France subsidiary promoted as a hip new airline for millennials, appears to be on the verge of closure, just 13 months after launch. “After much discussion with employees and customers alike, and in consultation with the unions, Air France has decided to launch a project studying the future of the Joon brand and the integration of Joon employees and aircraft into Air France,” Joon’s parent said Thursday as part of a statem...

Eating raw chicken sashimi in Tokyo

When it comes to eating sashimi in Tokyo, fish is by far the most ubiquitous offer. But it’s not the only one. Restaurants also serve shikasashi (deer), basashi (horse), and — perhaps most hotly debated of all — torisashi (chicken). The name loosely translates to “raw bird,” and it’s exactly what it sounds like: thinly sliced raw chicken breast served with a flavorful salt or sauce. I never thought I’d order raw chicken sashimi-style. Like most Americans, I grew up deeply terrified of salmon...

Reptile bar in Tokyo

If you’re sick of the traditional bar scene, Tokyo’s Bar Yatonokami might be the change you’ve been looking for. Just west of Tokyo’s city center, this bar’s aesthetic resembles a shady club, with blue fluorescent lights, pictures of reptiles covering the walls, and an attic-like second-floor location. When you open the door, you’ll be greeted by rows of reptile terrariums, home to over 100 creatures. 本日もオープン夜刀神! 雰囲気は変わってきましたが相変わらず、よくわからないモニター脱皮中で汚いけれどご愛嬌 ……なんだろ、これ

Chiang Mai trip report – the provincial powerhouse of Southeast Asia

Every time I return to Chiang Mai (which has been often) I marvel at how hard this inland provincial city punches above its weight. After thinking about this I looked at a map of Asia, and I can’t think of a non-capital city (and not a port/coastal city) that has as much to offer as Chiang Mai. Sure there are bigger inland cities in China, but not with the international appeal as Chiang Mai. In the future I think Da Nang will be the city to watch, but it has some way to go to catch up with the...

Tofu town in Korea for vegetarians

South Korea is famous for its tabletop barbecue and pork-heavy bulgogi. While delicious, it can make dining a significant challenge for vegetarians. The solution for a meat-free fix of kimchi and tofu is to head to Gangneung, a coastal city along the Sea of Japan that’s famous for its beaches, its tourist attractions, and, increasingly, its designation as “tofu town.” Also known for being one of the three primary locations for the 2018 Winter Olympics, Gangneung might just be the best place i...

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

From a Year on the Road | By Larry Mogelonsky

As 2018 draws to a close, I'm taking stock: a month in Japan, a wedding in Australia, three work trips to Europe, eight sojourns to the USA and half a dozen domestic journeys (within Canada). I don't think of myself as a road warrior but rather an enthusiastic traveler, with the former classification reserved for those who 'have to' and the latter for those that 'want to' travel.

Dark tourism destinations

How to Be Less of a Traveling Asshole in 2019

Everyone likes to think that they’re a good traveler. But are you as good as you think you are? Probably not. “How dare you call me an asshole?! I’m one of the good ones!” I mean, we’re all assholes. We all cause damage. There’s no such thing as a perfect traveler or trip. We can all strive to do better.  I often say that the best thing the travel blogging community has done is raise awareness about elephant rides. Elephant rides are universally abusive to the animals — there’s no such thing ...
