5.5 Hours In Monaco, One Of The Smallest Countries In The World

monacoThe Michael W Travels family visited France during winter break of 2018.

We booked our flights to Paris due to receiving $2,700 for a bump on Delta Air Lines on the way home from the previous year’s winter break trip.

Kim and I had each separately visited Paris almost 20 years ago. This trip would be our first time visiting together as well as a first visit for the kids. When I booked the flight to Paris, I had to squeeze in a visit to a new country and Monaco was the perfect option! Continue reading 5.5 Hours In Monaco, One Of The Smallest Countries In The World

I Love Tiraspol?

Over the summer, the Michael W Travels family took a month- long trip to six former Soviet states.

During the trip, I had to visit the unrecognized state of Transnistria, a “country” which claimed its independence from Moldova back in 1990 (although no UN member states recognize the claim).

Transnistria keeps its “independence” due to financial and military support (peacekeepers) from Russia. Continue reading 6.5 Hours in Transnistria with Kids, A Country That Doesn’t Really Exist!

Philadelphia ranks as one of our favorite cities to visit if we want to get away for a day or two. Its close to home (Brooklyn, NY) and has enough to do to keep us busy.

One of the main draws for us when visiting Philadelphia, is the food, including the popular Philly Cheesesteak.

During our most recent visit, we tried and conquered the Philly Taco. Continue reading Philly Cheesesteak Fav Tony Luke’s Opening In NYC

Virgin Atlantic is changing their swimming policy for cabin crews.

My guess is that in order to be a member of an airline’s cabin crew, you need to know how to swim, just in case of an emergency.

When I saw a tweet from Richard Branson about Virgin Atlantic changing their swimming policy, I wondered if it would no long be required to know how to swim. Continue reading Virgin Atlantic Changing Their Cabin Crew Swimming Policy
