In the wake of recent events in London, I’ve heard a lot of people talking about being worried about traveling to London. I’m on several travel-related groups on Facebook and several people have brought up the, “should I cancel my trip to London?” discussion.
Have you always wished you could be one of those people who traveled the world? Have you had thoughts along the lines of, “must be nice,” or “someday when I have time and money…”?
As somebody who is constantly on the lookout for ways to make travel an affordable reality in my life, I’ve naturally taken an interest in ultra-budget airlines such as Spirit and Frontier. For a while I actually shied away from them entirely, opting to fly with Southwest Airlines for nearly all of my domestic travel (I do love Southwest Airlines). However, airlines such as Spirit and Frontier do have some of the most affordable rates around, so they are worth taking a look at.
I’m going to touch on a subject that has been on my mind lately. I’ve heard a lot of talk about people not traveling to various places around the world for fear of terrorism.
Here’s the thing…the world is indeed a scary and dangerous place, but it’s also a wonderful, beautiful, friendly place full of amazing cultures, delicious food, beautiful architecture, spectacular art, and wonderful people. You have this life to live. You have this time on Earth and it is important that you make the most out of your time while you’re here. Don’t let alarmist news reports be the reason you don’t do the things you have always wanted to do in life.
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:
If you’re like me and you like to stay healthy and fit, you’ll know the struggle of coming back from a trip with a few extra pounds on. All that delicious food and interruption of a regular fitness routine can take a toll on the body, but it doesn’t have to. Fitness is something you can squeeze into any trip if you plan your time wisely. I previously wrote a post on staying healthy and fit while on the road, but today I want to delve into some specific workouts you can do inside your hotel room because, quite frankly, sometimes that’s your only option.
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.
Two things you should know about me: I live in San Diego, California. I do NOT surf.
I generally like to spend my free time scouring the internet for travel-related stories, websites, products, etc. I’m pretty intrigued with the following products, which I wanted to share with all of you.
It’s my ten year wedding anniversary. I’m taking a look back at my awesome Italian honeymoon.
