Why Traveling Alone Can Be The Best Experience

When you think of traveling, you might think of a big family vacation, a group of friends setting off to see the world, or perhaps a couple’s romantic getaway. What you might not think of is traveling by yourself . However, solo traveling can be an amazing experience, and there are so many benefits that if you’ve been tempted to visit a far-flung destination but didn’t have anyone to go with, you really should just book your tickets and head off to explore!

How to save on New Orleans Attractions with the New Orleans Sightseeing Pass

I totally geek out on discounted attraction passes. Why? Because I love tours. They offer you insight into the local history and culture that you may not necessarily pick up on your own. Sometimes you can. You can spend hours wandering and reading plaques, but that can be an exhausting experience. Depending on your mood for the day (and distractions) you may only take some of it in. And you don’t get the local lore and myths woven in – those stories that leave you wondering if you’ve just been h...

14 Major Travel Scams to Avoid

Updated: 12/28/2018 | December 28th, 2018 Travel scams are real. When I started traveling, I fell for them too. On my first big non-tour trip, I got scammed twice on the same day. My friend Scott and I had just arrived in Thailand. We were in Bangkok trying to find a boat cruise to take us up and down the Chao Phraya River. A taxi driver suggested this one company; we went there, and found out that an hour-long tour was only $30 USD. Not even thinking about whether that was a deal or not, we ...

Best budget destinations in 2019

Around this time of year, “Where to Travel in 2019” stories seem to pop up on your newsfeed about as much as pictures of your friend’s chihuahua dressed up as a reindeer. They’re fun to read, but unless you managed to land that New York Times gig where you get paid to visit 52 locations, visiting even a few places in those stories can put a serious dent in your finances. So what about a “Where to go” list for the cost-savvy? The spots that are going to be big in 2019 but aren’t going to cost ...

A Vape Guide to Travelling Across the Globe

Not only is vaping becoming increasingly popular across the globe, but it’s contributing to a decline in the number of active smokers. To illustrate this, the number of vapers rose from 7 million in 2011 to 35 million just five years later, while research group Euromonitor estimates that the number of adults who vape will reach 55 million by 2021. At the same time, the number of smokers has continued to decline falling from 1.14 billion to 1.1 billion since the turn of the century. In the domest...

How to Become a House Sitter and Never Pay for Accommodation

Updated: 12/24/2018 | December 24th, 2018 A lot of readers were interested in learning more about house-sitting (watching people’s houses while they’re away in exchange for free accommodation). I’ve never done it, but Dalene and Pete from Hecktic Travels do it all the time, so I brought them in to talk more about the subject. Enjoy!

What to see and do in Moscow

If you think Russia is a frozen, barren land dotted with drab Soviet buildings, you need to make your way to Moscow. The city is filled with world-class museums, modern parks, and jaw-dropping architecture that’ll bust those stereotypes once and for all. As for food, it’s not all about spuds and thin onion soup either — once you try a hot, savory blini and a bowl of borscht, you’ll never want to have a can of Campbell’s ever again. Plan a trip to Moscow and hit these nine cool spots to experi...

Best way to see Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

One minute you’re marveling at the countless towers of rock rising up from the emerald green waters of Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay. And that’s all you get. Just one minute. Because every other second of your two-night boat excursion has you surrounded by countless other tour boats rather than the natural wonder you came to observe. Even at night, the serenity is usually shattered by an ‘OOMPH, OOMPH, OOMPH’ echoing off the moonlit cliffs from a closely anchored party boat. There is a better way to ...

My Year in Review and Holiday Greetings

Happy Holidays! I can’t believe it’s my 12th year of doing these holiday videos!  I’m not a video person mainly becuase I hate editing video.  It takes me a full 10 to 12 hour day to get this video done.  So every year I don’t think I’ll make the video and then tradition (and guilt) wins out. I traveled more than ever in 2018! One of the things I have come to realize since having a home base, I spend a lot more time on planes than I used to.  Each time I go on a trip I now have a home to come ba...

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 ...
