The rise of the International Budget Carriers

There has been something wonderful happening with the airline industry lately. Budget carriers are starting to take us to more and more fabulous international destinations! It wasn’t too long ago when the prospect of an international flight was an expensive one, indeed. However, I’ve noticed a trend lately where budget carriers are adding some pretty great destinations to their itineraries. Hooray! If you’ve been wanting to get out there and explore the world a little more, now just might be the time.

Wanderlust Wednesday: Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is a beautiful, impressive, famous waterfall which is located on the border between the United States and Canada. On the U.S. side, it’s just outside Buffalo, New York, and on the Canadian side, it’s not terribly far from Toronto. I’ve always wanted to visit this natural wonder, and it would be great to combine a visit to the Falls with a tour of the region on both sides of the border. This Wanderlust Wednesday, let’s explore what a possible U.S.-Canada journey centering around Niagara Falls might look like.

Wanderlust Wednesday: Toronto, Canada

I’ve always wanted to visit Toronto, Canada, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I know a few people from there and others who have visited and by all reports, it’s a wonderful city. It’s clean, modern, and has an absolutely beautiful skyline. There are always tons of things going on in this vibrant metropolis, and the dining and entertainment options are top notch. Let’s take a quick look at this vibrant Canadian capital and get inspired to do a little traveling on this Wanderlust Wednesday.

A Lovely Getaway to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

I had the good fortune to spend five days in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico recently and it was magical. I wanted to share with you the beauty of this wonderful little town at the tip of Baja California as well as a few travel tips, of course. If you’re from the U.S. West coast, it’s really quite a short flight there as well (only two hours from San Diego or Tijuana airports and not too much more from Los Angeles). You could be away in the beautiful Mexican state of Baja California Sur quicker than you might think!

That’s why today we’re going to explore some of the images of the classic Route 66 road trip. Enjoy!
