Trading Divorce for Travel

Reflecting on it now, it seems appropriate that my husband and I took a weekend trip to sign our divorce papers.  At the time, I was living in New York City and he in San Diego.  In an attempt to be amicable, we decided to meet in Palm Springs for the “official” signing.  It was a typical Palm Springs weekend that we’d experienced dozens of times before: the air hot and dry, with oily and glistening leathery women sprawled out on chaise lounges around the pool.  The difference this time was that...

Travel: Largest cruise ship ever to be based year-round in Southern California coming to Long Beach

Come December, Southern California cruisers will say “ahoy” to the new 4,000-passenger Carnival Panorama, currently being built at the same Italian shipyard where the ship it’s replacing, the 3,100-passenger Carnival Splendor, was constructed a decade ago. Just months away from a sea test at the Fincantieri shipyard near Venice, Italy, the Panorama is the third vessel in Carnival’s Vista Class, following the 2-year-old Carnival Vista and 9-month-old Carnival Horizon. It will not only be Carnival...

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...

Crystal Cruises: What The Luxury Cruise Experience is Really Like

In 2003, I boarded a large cruise ship on a sailing of the Western Caribbean. I call this itinerary a training wheel cruise for would-be travelers because they offer a good first insight into what the experience is all about. Since then I’ve been on many other cruises in nearly every corner of the world, averaging at least one or two a year. It’s not how I always decide to travel, but it is a style I enjoy and over the years I have fine-tuned what it is I like and don’t like about certain compa...

What are social community hotels?

Hostels, when you’re young , are great. Places where you pay almost nothing to stay and get to interact with like-minded young people from all over the world. Where you can share a cheap beer and discover a city with a group of strangers, staying out until sunrise with your motley crew of new best friends. But for most of us, as we get older, the idea of sharing a bunk room with a bunch of dirty backpackers starts to lose its appeal. The cheap beer tastes cheaper, and the idea of staying out w...

Travel to Eat: My Favorite Food Moments of 2018

I write about food a lot on this site, but with good reason. I firmly believe that it’s the most important aspect of the travel experience, forming some of our strongest memories through taste and smell. It’s also the fastest way to learn about a new culture and what the people value. More than anything else though, it’s just a lot of fun. There’s nothing better than snacking your way through a foreign market, or tentatively ordering a meal, not quite sure what you’ve gotten yourself into. It c...

Follow Me On A Different Sort of Holiday Getaway

Over the course of the last 8 years, I’ve developed a kind of holiday tradition of traveling to Europe the week or two before Christmas. It started as a way to take advantage of an air deal, but since then developed into a full-blown habit. I’ve stayed in rented condos, taken river cruises and enjoyed some incredible hotels from Belgium and France to Germany and Austria, all the way south to Italy and as far east as Hungary. It’s been a fun way to learn more about the Christmas traditions uniqu...

Southwest Prepares for Battle in California With Fare Cuts (Analysis – Part 1)

Ever since I attended the Boyd conference way back in August, I’ve been meaning to look at Southwest’s intra-California strategy in more detail.  Facing new competition from the combined Alaska/Virgin America, Southwest has really ramped up the rhetoric about California, and it has made some changes to the way it prices its offerings in the market.  It took me awhile, but I’ve finally been able to sit down with the data (thanks to Atmosphere Research’s Henry Hartveldt for sending it over) to see...

Alaska’s Basic Economy is On Sale in Three Markets

Last week, Alaska released its first Saver (aka Basic Economy) fares into the wild in three test markets for travel in a 10 day window between December 6 and 16.  Presumably Alaska didn’t want to test this over the holidays when less experience travelers are flying. Let’s see if it lives up to what was expected. Initial Markets The three markets that received the test fares are all from San Diego.  Fares are filed from there to Baltimore, Salt Lake City, and Puerto Vallarta.  That’s a good c...

Top US Day of the Dead festivities

The Day of the Dead , or Día de Los Muertos, may take place around Halloween and share many of its macabre themes, but it’s not simply “Mexican Halloween.” While Halloween is defined by spooky costumes, haunted houses, and horror movies, Día de Los Muertos revolves around embracing death rather than fearing it. Through the decoration of altars — called ofrendas — with photos, flowers, candles, and personal items, the holiday is meant to be a celebration of deceased loved ones and a way of keep...

The 7 best US cities to see by bike

Driving can be a cumbersome way to see a city, what with traffic congestion and expensive parking. And while walking gets you up-close and personal, it’s hard to cover a lot of ground on foot — especially when the places you want to visit are far apart. Touring a city by bike, on the other hand, gives you that closer look while getting you farther in less time. Plus, fantastic cities like Seattle and Washington, DC, are becoming even friendlier to cyclists by adding bike lanes, welcoming bike...

Top drunk-food restaurants in the US

The best part about going out on Friday isn’t the bar or the dance floor, it’s the late-night snacks you eat before the night ends.

So, when it comes to getting the scoop on what, exactly, America’s favorite drunk food is, who better to ask than Lyft drivers? Yes, the patient, saintly Lyft drivers who cart drunken 20-somethings around town, praying they don’t puke in the car. Food & Wine asked Lyft for the data on th...
