Take a Spontaneous Trip with Last Minute Travel Deals!

Sometimes it’s nice to just be spontaneous with your travel. If you’re looking for a last minute deal on a little getaway, there are a dizzying array of sites and services out there looking for help you out with that. The thing is, many different travel-related companies such as airlines and hotels are looking to fill their open spots at the last minute and they are usually willing to give you a deal in order to fill up those spots. From their perspective, giving you a discount will still make them more of a profit then leaving those seats or rooms empty, so it’s a win-win scenario.

Anyway, if you’re interested in a last minute, spontaneous trip, here are some resources for you to find a deal:

L.A.’s Norton Simon Museum is an Underrated Gem!

Located in downtown Pasadena on Colorado Blvd., the Norton Simon is a smaller, often overlooked museum. However, step inside and you’ll discover that although they are small, they pack quite the punch with an impressive collection. It’s actually one of my favorite museums in Los Angeles!

Traveling Through Your Taste Buds: Bibimbap

Today I wanted to talk about one of my favorites: Bibimbap, which is a dish from Korea. Bibimbap literally means Mixed Rice, but it’s so much more than that. If you’re new to Korean food, this is a great introduction to the cuisine that I find to be pretty versatile and accessible to most palettes. If you’re a Korean food fan already, then you’ll love having this for dinner at home. If you’ve never tried Korean food before, this is an easy, accessible place to start. So, without further adieu, let’s sit back, relax with a hot bowl of Bibimbap, and imagine ourselves strolling the streets of Seoul. Bon Apetit! (or maybe I should say 잘 먹겠습니다)

The Southern Arizona Road Trip

A few months ago, I went on a Southern Arizona road trip. While the purpose of my particular trip was mainly to visit relatives, we did take some time out to have fun and explore, of course, and it got me thinking that I should probably write a blog post on cool things to do in Southern Arizona. I think a lot of the time, Northern Arizona gets all the glory. Home to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff, and Antelope Canyon, Northern Arizona is an absolutely amazing place. But if you find yourself in the Southern part of the state, there are some cool things to enjoy there as well. If you find yourself visiting the area or just driving through, check out some of my recommendations and have a great time!

A budget plan for your next getaway!

I’ve often heard people state affordability as a major factor in why they don’t travel. I’ve gone on some pretty expensive, far-flung trips in my time, and I’m certainly not rich. How do I do it? It comes down to simple prioritization and budgeting. I’ve talked about this a lot in my blog, so I won’t get too far into the why’s or how’s or anything like that.

On Being Prepared for Anything

This is, primarily, a travel blog. However, I do occasionally like to delve into slightly different topics that I think are interesting or useful to know. We all love traveling for leisure, adventure, and fun…but what happens if we find ourselves suddenly in a situation where we need to travel unexpectedly? I’m talking about emergency situations, here.

What Kids Can Learn from Traveling That They Can’t Learn in the Classroom

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 the benefits of traveling with your children. I hope you enjoy her article!

Stuck in a Rut? Travel!

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in a rut? I know I do. Sometimes, the routine of doing the same things day after day, driving to the same places, sitting at the same desk, eating at the same restaurants, and going out to the same places starts to get to me. It’s almost like a case of cabin fever, except the cabin isn’t just my home but the entire city. I get to a point where I need to get out and explore. I need to do something, anything, that’s out of my routine. It starts to ache I yearn for it so badly.
