Recently, I wrote about a family that received $11,000 for giving up their seats on Delta Airlines. The family agreed to voluntarily give them up and cashed in!

On the opposite end of the spectrum you can be selected to be bumped when a flight is over sold. This can cause many headaches, especially if you have a pricey dream trip already booked at the destination you are flying to.

VooDoo Doughnut

Most of you would probably agree that food and travel go hand in hand .

When visiting a new destination, I try to do some research to findĀ popular places to try out. Most of the time this means the best burgers and pizza in a city.

During our trip to Portland, Oregon in late 2016, besides a couple of famous pizzerias, I had to make a stop at VooDoo Doughnut. Continue reading Tragedy at the Famous VooDoo Doughnut
