It was surprisingly difficult to eat GF in Japan, but I found ways to make it work. I ended up saving a lot of money in the process, and it was all part of the adventure. Read on for some of my tips…
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!
In 2007, I traveled to Italy on my honeymoon. Our first stop was Venice, and it was every bit as incredible as I had imagined it would be. Our second stop on the grand Italian tour was Florence. Usually we travel on a budget and stay in some […]
What can I say about Venice that hasn’t been said so many times before? Yes, it’s true that it’s incredibly beautiful. It’s so beautiful it’s almost surreal. In fact, you can find beauty and old-world charm in just about every corner of the city. It doesn’t really matter where you go…you’ll find beauty. Yes, there are iconic, amazing landmarks that you absolutely must see. But there are also amazing places around random corners.
A few years ago, my parents went to Belize. I was supposed to go with them but through a combination of unfortunate circumstances, I wasn’t able to go…and I was devastated. However, looking at their photos and hearing about what a wonderful time they had really fueled my wanderlust for the small Central American country, and I’m still bound and determined to make it there someday. If you’re unfamiliar with the beauty of this amazing little country, allow me to introduce you to Belize, the topic of this week’s Wanderlust Wednesday.
The moment my plane touched down at the Venice airport, all the wariness and exhaustion of the last several days of traveling left me. All I had left was excitement. This was, after all, my first time in Italy, and I was about to explore one of the most beautiful cities on the planet.
It was the first day of my honeymoon and I had just landed in Venice, Italy. It had been a harrowing journey. We had originally planned on flying into Milan, where we would spend the night, explore Milan a bit, and then take the train into Venice the next day.
These plans were foiled, however, by my old nemesis of LAX. I don’t know if you’re noticing a theme in this blog yet or not, but nothing good ever happens to me at LAX. In my opinion, it is a pit of despair. Still, Los Angeles is the cheapest airport to fly out of internationally in my area, so I do find myself there more often than I would like.
In the first post in this series, we talked about some tips to make the trip more entertaining. This post is about preparation for a road trip. It’s all the boring yet necessary stuff you should probably do before you hit the road.
When you mention Rwanda to somebody, they will likely recall some pretty brutal images of war in the mid-90’s. However, things have calmed down considerably since then and in general, it’s a safe place to visit. There are still issues from time to time, however, but if you are vigilant you should be fine. Besides, Rwanda is a beautiful place that has so much to offer those who are willing to pay it a visit! Take a look at some of the beautiful images from the country, below, and imagine yourself on a trip to this beautiful African nation.
The Great American Road Trip is a beloved pastime in my country. However, as my country is also enormous with large areas of unoccupied wide open spaces, it can also be boring. If you’re planning a road trip (in any country!), you might want to follow a few of these tips to make your journey smooth and entertaining.
