Dublin Free Walking Tour, a Quick Review

Every major city in Europe is great for weekend trips. The majority of the tourist sites are usually located right in the center of town and are pretty easily navigable by just walking. At the same time, almost every major city offers a free walking tour. Quick weekend trip to Dublin Back in January we decided that if we were going to be cold and miserable for a weekend, we could either choose Seattle (where we live) or Dublin (where...

Flight cancelled because of weather? Here’s what to expect

Modern airplanes can pretty much handle any type of weather. They’re designed to take lightning strikes, travel in snow and heavy rain and can even handle windstorms. But when an airline deems the weather too unsafe to travel and your flight is cancelled, what should you expect the airline to do for you? As always with everything in life, your results may vary. Here’s a basic guide. Flight cancelled or delayed? The first thing to...

Quit that Damn Rock Stacking Fad!

To many, many people, the art of rock stacking (apparently called cairns) is a beautiful thing to do as it gives them peace, relaxation and gets them in touch with themselves. For many, many others like myself, who like to enjoy nature in its natural state, it drives us insane. And I do mean insane.   AHHHHHHHHH! Stop doing this crap! #rockstacking #cairns #rockpile #Santorini #Greece #Oia #travel #tourism A video posted by Ben...

Zambezi River Cruise, Zambia

As we only had a few days left in our trip, and just three days, two nights in Zambia in particular, we didn’t want to just do nothing. So we decided to book a River Cruise tour of the Mighty Zambezi River instead, which would allow us to wine and dine while at the same time requiring no extenuating activity from out part. We booked it once again from Euma Tours, who arranged a hotel pickup not too long after we had arrived to...

Zika Prevention for Rio 2016

So here we are, en route to (being en route to being closer to getting to) Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic Games. As we sit on the Delta Sky Club lounge in Atlanta, we wanted to share with you how we made sure to mitigate the risk of contracting Zika while we’re down there. As much as we love supporting Team USA (and Team Argentina and Team Italy for that matter), we don’t want to come back with a nice Zika surprise....

Zambia: Walking with Rhinos

Since our visit to Kruger National Park in South Africa, I had been dead set on seeing rhinos, at least from a shorter distance. It turned out it wasn’t meant to be until we got to Zambia. It is worth noting that in 2010, the population of white rhinos in Zambia was a shocking total of 1. Yes, ONE. Thankfully, the country sprung into action and relocated 4 white rhinos from South Africa to Zambia’s Mosi-oa-Tunya...

Route 66 goes Green

Since its creation in 1926, this popular route has definitely seen better days, but after 90 years it will see some great improvements courtesy of Science and Technology. Route 66 is one of the earliest official federal highways, and although it cannot be driven uninterrupted from end to end (Chicago to Los Angeles) it is about to go down in history as the first highway to go green. And we don’t mean the color, that would...

Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve

Now, for an interesting change of pace, we decided to do a safari drive outside of Kruger Park. There are plenty of private game reserves (once again, just make sure it’s not one that allows for game hunting…) and you can do a different kind of safari if you choose the private options.
