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.
I recently went on a trip to Northwestern Florida, and brought back with me a few insights on what you should pack when visiting the region. Here are my suggestions.
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.
Today, you can drive across the country on one of our many interstate highways, which are much quicker than the slow, meandering journey that is Route 66. Still, for those who are willing to put in the time, there are still delights to be experienced should they choose the historic route. That’s why today we’re going to explore some of the images of the classic Route 66 road trip. Enjoy!
Attention, San Diego area locals and visitors: there is a volcano in our midst! Yes, I said that right. There’s a volcano in our midst! (I had to repeat myself for dramatic effect). Nestled in the relatively sleepy seaside town of Carlsbad (a.k.a. home) is the Calavera Nature Preserve, where one can go on a leisurely afternoon hike past a tiny lake and to an extinct volcano! Who ever said there’s nothing cool in the suburbs?
Ok, so it’s not summertime at the moment, but I wanted to put this out there for you now so you’ll have plenty of time to think about it and get prepared before Summer arrives. I just found out that the state of Alaska recruits tons of people to come work seasonally every summer in their tourism and commercial fishing industries. There aren’t usually enough Alaskans to fill all the positions, so those of us from the lower 48 (and Hawaii) are in luck!
If you’re going to be visiting North County Coastal San Diego in the near future, allow me to be the first to welcome you to the neighborhood. I know when I’m hanging out in a new place I like nothing more than sleeping in and then meandering over to some restaurant where I can be served a delicious brunch that I will linger over for far too long.
A fair warning: I’m going to pick on New Yorkers a bit in this post. I do it all with love and good humor, I promise. You’re tough, you can take it.
New York City and Los Angeles have long been in a sort of friendly battle over which city is better. Residents of both have their reasons for why their city is the best, and both have really compelling arguments. Honestly, both cities are awesome and have many things going for them. This post isn’t about inciting a New York vs. Los Angeles battle, because I know how heated those can get! Besides, having grown up in L.A., I’m more than a little biased on the subject. (Still, if you feel like making an argument for your side in the comments, I welcome a friendly debate).
