While I love traveling, cruises are definitely not my thing.

I’ve been on a cruise once in my life and it certainly didn’t leave me wanting to go back for more. Some things that I don’t like about cruises are that you are stuck for long periods of time onboard and when you do stop, you usually get a short visit wherever it might be. Also, the day seems to revolve around the meal schedule and (at least on our cruise) there weren’t enough lounge chairs by the pool.

I will add that the cruise we went on wasn’t one of those mega-ships. If I was to try a cruise again, I wouldn’t mind trying a river cruise. I’ve read positive things about them and I’m guessing it would be a very different experience.

Why am I writing about cruises if I don’t like them? Continue reading 86 Year Old Spends $164,000 A Year To Live On Cruise Ship

First off, I want to wish all of you a Happy New Year’s and hope that 2014 was a great one in all aspects of life (including travel of course)!

from Buzzfeed article

Last Friday I wrote a post to remind everyone to beware of Uber Surge Pricing On Halloween. Apparently one young lady in Maryland missed my post!

In my post I wasn’t sure if surge pricing was expected all over the country (since the e-mail I received and it was from Uber NYC), but apparently it was.

This Halloween was more trick than treat for 26 year old Baltimoron Gabby Wathen. Continue reading Apparently She Didn’t Read My Beware of Uber Surge Pricing Post

Can You Pass: Middle School US History Test

Back when I was in school I always excelled more in English & Social Studies than /Math & Science. I probably consider Social Studies/ History to be my favorite subjects.

While it’s been some time since I’ve been in school (even grad school for that matter), I’d still like to think that I’d do well with basic US history questions. Continue reading Can You Pass: Middle School US History Test

Quiz: How Many Countries Can You Identify From A Photo

How well do you think you know countries around the world?

Maybe you know their history, politics, food and culture. But what if you were given just one picture? Do you think you’d do well then?

When I came across a new quiz from Buzzfeed- How Many Countries Can You Identify From Just One Picture, I didn’t think I had much of a chance. Continue reading Quiz: How Many Countries Can You Identify From A Photo

Woman FAKES Amazing 42 Day Vacation

It really is amazing what stories could be told using Facebook and Photoshop and not all of them are what they seem.

Imagine telling your friends and family that you were going on an amazing 42 day Southeast Asia vacation and then posting photos during your trip to Facebook. Imagine doing this all without leaving your home town.

That’s exactly what a Dutch woman, Zilla van den Born did.  Continue reading Woman FAKES Amazing 42 Day Vacation

Quiz: State Fair Foods- Real or Fake?

The state fair is an event that I’ve been wanted to experience for quite some time. I’m trying to figure some things out so we can finally get to go to one next month.

When I think of a state fair, rides, bizarre competitions and local & strange foods come to mind.

Over the summer I wrote a post about 10 Best State Fairs in the US. My post (which is about an article from Fodor’s) prompted me to look into the idea of finally attending a state fair before 2014 comes to a close. Continue reading Quiz: State Fair Foods- Real or Fake?
