Hotels.com Reward Booking Headache Ends With Great Customer Service

Hotels.com is one of our favorite sites to use to book hotel stays if we’re not booking direct or staying in a hostel or Airbnb. (*You can actually book some hostels on the site, too.)

A Stop On The Anthony Bourdain Food Trail: Hiram’s Roadstand

While planning to visit new places, I look for ideas where to eat based on places featured on Food/ Travel shows. Places recommended by Anthony Bourdain tend to just about always be really good.
