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...

My Top 11 Hostels in Budapest in 2019

Updated: 1/9/2019 | January 9th, 2019 Budapest has become one of the premier backpacker destinations in Europe.

Rhum Bar 1802 and MASHA Restaurant

In my younger days, I was a full out disco king, going out to clubs like Studio 54 or Area in New York almost every night of the week. Strutting my best moves on the dance floor, I was stiff competition for John Travolta aka Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever.   Nowadays, I don’t go out much anymore at night except to have dinner at restaurants. I’ve put my platform disco shoes, shiny shirts unbuttoned practically to the waist, and bell bottom pants into storage and now wear furry slippe...

Kayak travel hacks best times to fly

Getting tips on travel is kinda like getting dating advice from relatives at a wedding. Every time you look up, someone is offering some sage wisdom about how to time it right, avoid the pitfalls, and get the most for your money, so to speak. And listening to all of it gets you so overwhelmed that you just wanna say “forget it” and stay home with a bottle of Chianti and Netflix. Of course, unlike with dating, the travel world has actual, quantifiable authorities who base their advice on more ...

Best VPNs for China 2019 (that still work despite the ban)

Update January 2019: As many of you know, China spent a good portion of 2018 cracking down on VPN usage throughout the country and even threatened to ban all non-state sanctioned VPNs. Obviously, that hasn’t happened (expats are still using VPNs today). So what’s the deal? Do the best VPNs for China still work? As an expat who has spent over a decade in China, I’d like to offer my thoughts and recommendations. Sadly this website, like many others, has been blocked in China since 2009 ...

Week 5: New Years in Gruene and Big Bend, Texas

We stayed longer in Texas Hill Country then we planned. A few challenges sprung up during week 5 of our USA road trip which had us problem solving for the optimal solution.

10 Creative Ways to Save Money in 2019

I don’t know about you, but money has been on my mind a lot recently. Probably because I’m anxiously awaiting several end-of-year payments from work I did last year, and also the fact that it’s the NEW YEAR and I’ve got to start planning for the future…I guess. As a freelancer & business owner, I’m always a little anxious about my fluctuating income. And with the volatile market the past month, my future is increasingly…worrisome.

LEVEL budget airline review

In 2017, a new budget airline called LEVEL took its inaugural flight from Barcelona to Los Angeles. It’s owned and operated by IAG (the same company behind British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia, and others) and is based in Barcelona. The early impression from flight experts like the team at The Points Guy weren’t great — even for a budget airline — but just over a year into the company’s short life, LEVEL is hitting its stride. Like many late-20s professionals, I’ve been experiencing the newfou...

The biggest ways 2018 changed food

A lot changed about the way we eat — and the way we think about food — in 2018. We lost Anthony Bourdain, a man who opened people’s eyes to other cultures and changed the way we think about how food and culture interact. Samin Nosrat, the author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat and host of a show of the same name, taught everyone with a Netflix account a new way to think about cooking around the world. There was more authenticity in restaurants, and some places the media had written off for dead were...

Week 4: Discovering Homegrown Gems in Texas Hill Country

We finished our time in New Orleans catching up with our friends who we made while in NOLA for MArdi Gras at the beginning of the year. I love how travel is like the superglue of friendships. You can meet someone so briefly, yet can quickly become great mates. That’s Whitney and Mike, and their two daughters. We were stoked that the stars aligned and they were in town at the same time as us. We stayed an extra day so we could see them. They took us to a cool neighborhood eatery in Marigny, the N...

Week 3 RV Road Trip: Christmas in New Orleans, LA

Rain, rain go away. That’s what I found myself singing a lot at the start of week 3 of our USA road trip with Goldie and the Beast. For two weeks, we’ve mostly had rain and snow. It’s amazing how quickly you can get cabin fever and your mood can plummet due to inclement weather. We left Huntsville for New Orleans. Not wanting to make the seven hour drive in one day, and wanting to delay our arrival into NOLA so we could make some later scheduled Christmas events, we stopped off into Birmingham, ...

Why and how you should apply the Netflix model to your hotel | By Nancy Huang

It's easy to forget that Netflix started out as an ambitious DVD-by-mail company that nearly went out of business. Back in 2011, Netflix was being savaged by the media and its stock price was plummeting. Today, it's the second-most valuable media company in the world and boasts 125 million subscribers.

'The Crown' costumes on display

Netflix may be giving the axe to shows left and right, but The Crown seems like it’s sticking around for the long haul.
