You may never have heard or read the letters R-T-W before.  If you don’t know their meaning, that’s all right.  If you do know their meaning and have contemplated taking one, then you have come to the right place.

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 ...

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 ...

How to Cope with Spending the Holidays Away From Home

Many RTW travelers take a trip like this because they want to get away.  Whether it’s getting away from work, the real world, a relationship gone bad, or simply getting away to experience something new, RTW travelers adapt quickly to different surroundings. I know for me, change and uniqueness is part of what I love about travel.  I love nothing more than entering a foreign country, where people don’t speak my language, where customs and the culture is completely different.  It gets my juices fl...

The Kindness of a Stranger Makes Memories in the Marquesas Islands

I sometimes wonder what makes a trip memorable. I’ve traveled around 97 countries and six territories and, honestly, there are times when I can’t remember what country I am in, much less which city. My memories of destinations are sometimes indistinct. I can see the houses, the streets, the people, and even recall specific situations, but for the life of me, I can’t remember where they occurred. On the other hand, some places are indelibly etched into my psyche. The ancient Incan city of Machu P...

13 Travel Books That Will Give You Serious Wanderlust

Updated: 10/16/2018 | October 16th, 2018 The end of the year is just that time for favorites lists – and I’ve written about the best travel books many times over! I love talking about travel books. Why? Because part of the tool belt of any traveler is a good book. Long bus, train, or plane rides can get pretty boring and can give you a lot of “dead” time if you haven’t mastered the art of the 10-hour blank stare. Additionally, reading travel books helps you learn about the destinations you are ...

11 ways to say YES to the world

H aving a love of travel doesn’t necessarily mean a person knows how to say “yes” to the world. What they’re saying “yes” to might be a very manicured, pre-packaged, guidebook-approved set of experiences. Travel doesn’t always equal mind-opening, life-altering moments. It doesn’t automatically mean you’re living life to the fullest. And the opposite is also true — you don’t have to constantly be traveling to say “yes” to the world and its breadth of potential. All you have to do is be open to ...

Scenes from Prague & The Emergence of Overtourism

The city of Prague has intrigued me since my brother told me tales of his adventures from when he visited in the late 1990s. One of my most fun friends is also from the Czech Republic so when she asked me to come visit her, I was more than happy to make the trip. I started by spending three days in Brno then we drove together to Prague to explore it for another three days.   Prague is a beautiful city, but if you really want to appreciate the architectural beauty of the old town, you need to do ...

Underrated UNESCO heritage sites

You’ve heard of the Vatican, Athens, and Iguazú — heck, you’ve probably been there. These sites draw the big crowds, thanks in part to the UNESCO statuses they gained for their cultural significance, natural beauty, or both. What you may not know is that there are 1,092 UNESCO World Heritage sites across the globe, each chosen for the same reasons. For reasons stemming from difficulty to access to a lack of hype in guidebooks, many of these sites see far thinner crowds than others. If you’re ...
