This post was more a hypothetical statement rather than a let’s go to Africa right now kind of idea. I’m very glad that Kim and I have had the chance to visit Africa a few times. We took many safaris and those trips are some of our fondest travel memories.
When the time is right I do hope to return to Africa. I can’t wait to see Lucas’ face the first time he sees elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras and a variety of other animals roaming freely where they belong. It is this image that most makes me want to return to a continent that I’ve had such great experiences in. Continue reading Flight Attendants Making Ebola Kits?→
Find out at the end of the post how to get free coffee today, September 29!
When it comes to coffee, I’ve never been too interested. I don’t like the smell or taste and for that matter I don’t really care for hot beverages. However, I do find it interesting how beans are grown all over the world, making for a wide variety of flavors.
I wouldn’t claim to be a Five-Star Hotel kind of guy.
Since we always like to stretch our budget (both when using miles & points and when paying), an easy way to save money during a trip is by staying at budget accommodations like guesthouses, hostels and with airbnb. I’m not saying that we don’t like nice hotels, we just don’t like paying for them.

When I ask the same question in an upscale hotel, I am usually told about their in-house restaurant. Continue reading European Cities with Cheapest Five-Star Hotels→
I’ve never really thought much about what the most visited countries in the world would be. I do know that France and the United States are usually at the top of the list though.
If I had to guess which other countries would rank highly, I’d go with the U.K., Spain and hmmm I don’t know if I really have any other good guesses! Let’s go with the Czech Republic since it seems like so many people have visited Prague.
At home I try my best to be a law-abiding citizen and I’m happy to say that I’ve never had any legal issues.
While traveling to new places I like to think that I am always following the law but many times things are done differently. I’ve never had any legal problems while visiting a foreign country but I could see others getting caught doing something that they didn’t even know was illegal.

When I think of the term comfort foods, unhealthy is the first thing that comes to mind.
According to Merriam Webster, comfort food is “food prepared in a traditional style having a usually nostalgic or sentimental appeal.”
I wanted a better definition of the term so I turned to Urban Dictionary which says that comfort food is “defined as food that gives emotional comfort to the one eating it, these tend to be favorite foods of childhood, or linked to a person, place or time with which the food has a positive association.”
