Why you should Visit Hawaii Right Now

Covid cases in the United States have been rising out of control over the winter, and most Americans are looking for some sort of a reprieve from the mandates and restrictions in their hometowns. With Hawaii opening up for business and tourism in October, many have been trying to find a way to experience the islands for themselves. We’ve just returned from a week on the islands, and without a doubt we can tell you that if you’ve been...

Is Flying First Class all it’s Cracked Up To Be?

We get a lot of sideways looks in our daily lives when we tell people that we only travel in first class. People like to assume that it is because we’re made of money or the blog gives us tens of thousands of dollars a month in income (hint, it doesn’t). Ben and I made a pact back in 2013 that we would do everything possible to fly in first or business class on every single flight that we take, and at the MINIMUM fly in...

A day in the life of Male, Capital City, Maldives Review

Male is a bustling city, the capital of the Maldives with over 130,000 people. In fact, it’s one of the most densely populated islands in the world. We decided that it wouldn’t be a trip to the Maldives if we didn’t at least hang out here for one night to get a real experience for the island life. Upon reflection after the fact, we probably should have just gone straight for the island. Our flight from Abu Dhabi landed at 2pm, which...

How to survive traveling with little kids: Part 1 – The Airport

When I imagine heaven, I see a picture of my 3 kids running around in a park laughing, giggling and screaming with joy. The sun is shining brightly and their infectious laughter can be heard for miles on end. However, when I imagine hell, I picture dragging those same 3 children through an airport as we are running to catch a plane that we are in jeopardy of missing. One is crying and the others are walking frustratingly slow. I...

Explore the West Coast via Train. Seattle to Los Angeles for only $97

I was talking to a friend of mine who travels a lot by train last night. I’ve only traveled on short routes between Portland and Seattle, so I was incredulous when she said she liked long train trips. There was an event in Las Vegas she wanted to attend, and being that she lived near Chicago, she mentioned that signing up for a train ride across the country was the way to go. As you can imagine, the first thing that I said was...

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...
