Eating Gluten Free on a Flight

If you’re like me and you have dietary restrictions of any kind, you’ll know the routine of packing your snack bag before a flight. While many airlines do offer special meals to accommodate a number of different dietary restrictions on their long-haul flights, I know from experience that the food you receive may or may not satisfy you. Furthermore, you never know when unexpected delays are going to leave you spending the night in an airport with limited (or no) options for you. I always follow the rule that it’s best to be prepared, and it never fails to be a good decision.

One Week on O’ahu

What’s nice about going in the Fall is that there are often some really good deals on flights from the mainland West Coast. As a result, I usually go to Hawaii in the fall. Our accommodations weren’t too expensive either (see next section), so really the biggest expense we faced was the rental car. Although I would have liked to forego the car, I love the freedom that comes with being able to drive anywhere, any time, so it was worth the cost.

Prepping Your Technology For Travel

When you’re preparing for a trip, you might be thinking about getting all your travel documents in order and packing your suitcase, but you should also think about digitally preparing for your journey, as well. I’ve often found myself leaving this step until the last minute and regretting the decision. Let’s explore some of the things you might want to prepare with your technology before you head out on a trip:

Artistic Inspiration: Mike Barr’s Beautiful Australian Cityscapes

I love featuring artists from around the world on this blog who do beautiful works that inspire me to travel. Today, as I was looking around online as I usually do, I discovered an awesome artist by the name of Mike Barr. His specialty is beautiful cityscapes of Australia in the rain (as well as some non-rain landscapes and paintings as well) in the impressionist style. What could be more lovely? As both an art lover (and a huge fan of impressionism) and a travel lover, I can’t stop looking at these beautiful paintings and imagining myself in the scene. I had such an amazing time in Australia and these paintings are definitely making me want to go back for another visit. Check out some of his beautiful work.

Music That Will Inspire You to Travel

A while back, I did a post on Country music that will improve your summer, but if you’re just not that into Country music, you might be in the mood for a little travel inspiration, too! So, I decided to bring you a second post with even more inspiring travel music, this time with no Country songs…I promise.

Places to Catch Incredible Views in Paris

I’m headed to Paris soon! Hooray! This will be my second visit to what is, in my opinion, one of the most amazing places in the world.

I’ve been doing my research and I wanted to share with you all about the wonderful places I’ve learned have incredible views of Paris! Read on if you’re headed to Paris (or if you just want to read about Paris)…
