5 Great Off-Strip Places to Eat in Las Vegas

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.


A Day in Australia’s Hunter Valley Wine Region

Thankfully my Australian friends were absolutely amazing hosts and took us out for the day to some truly awesome places. I’m so thankful for that. One of those places was the Hunter Valley Wine Region. This is an area of New South Wales that one can reasonably drive to in a day trip out of Sydney.

How to change your career to allow for more travel: Part 2.

Ok, so last time I told you a little about my story and the steps I took (and continue to take) in order to achieve a lifestyle that allows me the flexibility to travel. This time, I’m going to talk a little more about what kinds of career options are out there for those of you who can’t just drop everything and start traveling.

On finding parking in Los Angeles.

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!

Hungry? Try one of these sandwiches from around the world.

Ah, the humble sandwich. We’ve all eaten them, and we’ve all enjoyed them. However, a sandwich is more than just something you might wrap up and pack in your lunch box. Cultures around the world have taken the sandwich and brought their own distinct flavor to this culinary staple food, so it’s possible to travel all around the world eating sandwiches and try something completely new each time.

It Might be Time for a Staycation…

We can’t all travel all the time. I wish we could! However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun lives full of new and exciting experiences, relaxing getaways, and fun filled weekends. I tend to lean heavily on the staycation as a means to get me through the boring parts of life between “real” travel experiences.

Although I tend to gravitate more towards cities with historical significance, a different culture, or perhaps just some incredible nature than I do “tourist cities”, I do find myself curious about Orlando. Would I like it? Would I not? I suppose one of these days I’ll have to go check it out for myself and find out. For now, let’s take a look at what Orlando has to offer on this Wanderlust Wednesday…
