I recently traveled to Seattle, as you’re probably all aware of. I wanted to recap some of the great things I saw and did while I was there in case any of you are planning your own Seattle adventures. I should preface this post with a note on how things work in Seattle. It’s a pretty big city consisting of neighborhoods. It’s a tough town to drive around and park (but we did it, so it’s not impossible). Public transport is decent but doesn’t go everywhere, so when you’re planning your Seattle adventure you’re going to want to look into the things you want to see and do before you decide whether or not you are going to want to rent a car.
I’ve written some posts about my time in Australia before, but I haven’t really delved too much into just how awesome a city Sydney is yet. Allow me to rectify that.
You guys…Sydney is amazing. If you haven’t been there yet, you really should put it on your list of places to travel to. I’ve been to other great cities of the world and I’m here to tell you that Sydney is one of the most beautiful, most exciting cities I’ve ever been to. It’s up there in the top tier of all places I’ve been. I promise.
One of my best friends moved to Florida a couple years ago, which was sad for me since we’re not hanging out as much as we used to these days. On the other hand, it means I now have a friend in Florida to go visit, and you all know how much I love a good travel opportunity. I’ve been out to Florida to visit her already, and had an amazing time. However, it’s looking like another plane ticket out there may be in order, because I received an email from my friend one morning that read simply, “We need to go here!” and had a link to a place called Devil’s Den Prehistoric Springs. So, I clicked the link and found out that the Devil’s Den looks like a pretty amazing place! Here is what it has to say on their website:
I’m really fortunate to know people all over the United States and all over the world, for that matter, who have consistently made my travel experiences more wonderful by taking the time to hang out with me while I’m in town and to show me the little local gems that average tourists might not know about. My Seattle adventure was no exception.
I’m calling this post “part 2” because you may recall a while back when I wrote a post on Getting By Using Public Transit in San Diego. In that post, I detailed the different public transit options in and around San Diego County to help you, the visitor to my fine city, find your way around.
I wanted to highlight five places in Vegas that I think are definitely worth checking out. I would also like to note that none of these are located on the strip, so you’ll have to venture out and explore new areas of the city to discover them. Trust me…it’s worth it.
There’s something you should know if you’re planning on coming to Los Angeles: it’s a difficult place to find a parking spot in.You might laugh and think, no big deal…I can deal with that. Seriously though, I’m telling you: parking in Los Angeles is hard. Really hard. Telling you that it’s hard might be the understatement of the century, actually. Let me re-phrase that:
Finding parking in Los Angeles is an extremely, incredibly frustrating activity.
I mean, come ON. Who builds a city that has such crap public transportation that the entire city is forced to get around by car, and then NOT build in suitable parking? Honestly!

You hear it time and time again: people are afraid to travel to Africa. They are convinced the entire place is a war-torn, disease-ridden wasteland and the thought of actually getting on a plane and traveling there frightens them.
Sure. Those things do exist in Africa, but remember…it is a huge continent with a large number of countries in it and there is a lot of diversity between those countries. There are a lot of beautiful places with…yes…clean, modern cities. Here are some things to remember about traveling to Africa.
