Things you should know about driving in France

I was happy to learn that, thankfully, this North American driver was in for roughly similar rules of the road and generally easy driving. Still, there are a few things I found helpful to know ahead of time, and a few things I learned along the way, so I wanted to write up this post for all of you who might be heading to France and hitting the open road. So, without further adieu, here are the things you should know if you’re planning on driving in France…

Annecy, France is an Underrated Gem

For most Americans, a trip to France involves Paris, of course. Perhaps they also venture down to Provence or the Southern coastal towns such as Nice. But there’s so much more to France. Might I suggest Annecy?

Day Trips From Las Vegas, Nevada

While I could spend a whole weekend exploring strange museums and attractions, catching shows, eating at fabulous restaurants, and doing a number of unique activities (roller coaster through a casino, anybody?), this particular post is for those of you who want to escape the city altogether and enjoy some of the awesome attractions the area around Las Vegas has to offer.

Spend an Epic Day in La Jolla, California!

If you’re going to be visiting San Diego, California, chances are that one point or another you’re going to end up in La Jolla. It’s known all over for being a beautiful place with awesome things to see and do, so it’s no wonder tourists and locals alike flock to the little beach community of La Jolla whenever the sun is out (and…this is San Diego, so the sun is usually out). If you’re planning on visiting the area and would like to check this awesome town out, you might be wondering just what to do when you get there. I have a few suggestions…

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.

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. Last time I was there, I did the whole tourist thing and visited the obligatory landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Elysses, and of course the Louvre. This time, however, I’m on a mission to dive a little deeper and discover some new and amazing things in the French capital. 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)…

Have A Rip-Roaring Adventure In Zimbabwe

I’m excited to announce a contribution from freelance writer and mother of two, Jenny Holt. She loves nothing more than getting away from it and taking her pet Labrador Bruce for long walks, something she can do a lot more now she’s left the corporate world behind. She has written a post for us today about visiting Zimbabwe. I hope you enjoy her article!

Downtown Las Vegas: The Overlooked, Oh-So-Cool Cousin of The Strip.

When one thinks of Las Vegas, one generally thinks of the Strip. All those pristine, towering themed casinos with fake pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, and all other manner of grand displays. The strip can be a whole lot of fun whether you’re a gambler or not (I should know…I’m not and I’ve found plenty to do on the Strip). That being said, Downtown Las Vegas is the often overlooked, older cousin of the strip. It’s really a shame it’s overlooked so much, because it’s a seriously cool place to be.
