We’re now a month into 2016 and hopefully many of you have or are planning lots of great trips for the new year.
When picking where to go, many factors can come into play. Maybe we pick a destination due to a great airfare, award flight availability or maybe it’s just somewhere we’ve long wanted to see and explore.
When I think of islands, lazy beach vacations come to mind. You know the kind where you sit around and drink those colorful drinks with umbrellas sticking out of the glass. As for the romance part, add in a massage or two and that could sum up a romantic island. (I’m probably leaving out a few important parts of the recipe…) Continue reading 10 Most Romantic Islands in World→
When planning our travels there is a wide variety of places to stay. You can stay at hotels which fit all kinds of budgets, stay in hostels which can range from 20 person dorms to private rooms with ensuite bathrooms, go the Airbnb route or even camp out.
Are you the kind of traveler that likes to go on the same kind of trip whenever you have a break from work? Do all-inclusives or beach vacations sound like the perfect trip for you?
While we had a really good time on our trip to the Dominican Republic, that’s not the kind of travel that we usually enjoy. Much to Kim’s dismay, I don’t see many more trips of this kind happening in the near future.
We all (including Lucas) enjoy exploring new places and meeting new people.
Travel gives us the opportunity to have a wide variety of experiences and get out of our comfort zone. (Although getting out of one’s comfort zone might just be the thing that stops so many from traveling.)
When we started traveling with Lucas, he was 11 weeks old. At the time, finding kid-friendly activities was (obviously) not a priority. To ease back into traveling, we headed to Barbados figuring a Caribbean island would be simpler than running around and doing tons of sightseeing. It turned out that we did find quite a bit to do during the trip. We rented a car and drove all over the island even checking out the loud and busy Friday night Oistins Fish Fry.
Around a week back I wrote about a Yahoo slideshow featuring 10 Hand Gestures To Never Use Abroad. The slideshow showed how easy it could be to offend people while visiting a new place and doing something as simple as a hand gesture innocently.
Soon after writing about the “Hand Gestures” slideshow, I came across another article related to this potential offense (while traveling abroad).
Budget Travel has an article with some interesting tips on How Not To Embarrass Yourself In A Foreign Country.
Budget Travel is giving away a 6 night trip for 2 to the British Virgin Islands.
The winner will stay on the island of Tortola in the BVI. From what I know, there isn’t a whole lot to do there but for those of you looking for a relaxing vacation this could be a great trip! (I can’t say that it’s really for me.)
