A role changer

If you follow the travel industry at all, then you're probably aware that Disney is about to make some HUGE changes in the next couple of months that will influence tourism and travel as we know it. Read this. These bracelets are going to be a major game changer for vacation companies, especially the all-inclusive sector... like cruise ships!
 It is my prediction that once Disney prefects this technology, it's only a matter of months before it's in the cruise ship! Mark my words.
Happy Travels,

Travel Mentors

There are loads of shows out there today where you can watch as people set out to explore the world! I'm extremely envious of these people and am still trying to figure out how they get to be so lucky. But until that realization strikes I'll just have to be content watching from my couch. Here are some of my favorites and I highly suggest them!

Samantha Brown has hosted several series including Girl Meets Hawaii, Great Vacation Homes, Great Hotels, Passport to Europe, Passport to Great Weekends, and Passport to Latin America. My personal favorite was Passport to Europe, but Great Weekends was fun if you were just going to be passing through a city. Her shows are full of local information and hidden gems, so if you're plan for a trip double check to see if she has an episode on the location.

Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations is a great show, I can't deny that. I, personal, think this guy is a huge asshole, but still find myself enjoying the show... especially the episode of Croatia! I have a lot of respect for people who appreciate the simple things in live: Food, Wine, and simply walking the streets. Anthony Bourdain does, but he's just a condescending douche about it. SO if you can put up with that, then no problem!

Karl Pilkington is one of the FUNNIEST people in the world. He hates change and fears the unknown... so his best friends, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant send him out into the world for kicks and giggles! It's hilarious and educational. I think I'm the most jealous of this situation, because he's doing all these amazing this and experiencing locations I might never get the chance to see... and he HATES it! It's like an elaborate prank that they've videoed for the last 3 season. Watch "An Idiot Abroad", you'll love it.

Comedian Zane Lamprey hosts a humorous trip around the world sampling the local well-known (and little-known) food and drink while also engaging in local alcohol-related customs. This is like every man's dream, right? The show's called "Three Sheets" and some times you can catch on the travel channel late at night. It's funny and educational, especially if you're interested in how alcohol is made and the history of your favorite drink.

So there you have my 4 key travel show mentors. If I missed one of your favorite, feel free to post their names! I'll look them up, since I'm always up for a good guide show. Happy Travels!

Comparing Frequent Flyer Miles

Everybody wants to know which airline has the best frequent flier program, but there's no one-size-fits all answer. Its based on who you fly with most often, where you're going and how do you want to spend your points. Here are some general guidelines about award-bookings rules and fees that may sway your loyalties. Most programs have similar rules and award levels, except for JetBlue and Southwest, which award points- not miles.
Besides fees to make changes or book a ticket at the last minute, you usually have to pay taxes and security fees when you travel on an award ticket sometimes a surcharge of $10-$30 if you book over the phone.

Program      Cost to Change      Fee to Redeposit Miles     Surcharge     Days Before Booking

Alaska Air        $75 or free within 3              $75                    $60 within 3           330
800-252-7522    days of booking                                      weeks of departure

There you have it, you can make your own decisions from here. Each person has different goals, so find the program that works best for you!
Happy Travels,


So you're strolling along the picturesque St Charles Bridge in Prague or the crowded stalls of La Rambla in Barcelona, taking in the sights while an amazing limber thief is taking in your wallet!  Pickpockets are rampant in large cities and can lift a wallet in under 20 seconds if their target is distracted. So here are some tips for your wallets long... or short-term attachment to your person.

  1. Never carry all your important documents together. This is asking for trouble. Now I'll admit that I have a beautiful leather passport carrier which also acts as a wallet, but I never keep my driver's license in it. Try to keep your government issues ids separate.
  2. Most credit cards have an international toll-free number to call in the event of theft or fraud. I keep a list of them in my suitcase. That way if the wallet is lifted, I can call right away.
    • here are the U.S. emergency numbers:
      • Visa: 800-847-2911
      • MasterCard:800-622-7748
      • American Express: 800-333-2649
  3.  Flying with an ID is possible, but difficult. If you're forced to do this, you'll need to contact the airline to find out what exactly they'll need from you. Prepare for the worst from the start by keeping photocopies of our Driver's License and Passport. Also keep a back up id, like student's card or work id.

The 24 hour Rule

Most travelers don't know but when you purchase a plane ticket, you usually have 24hrs to change your mind and receive a full refund. That grace period was originally established by the Airlines Reporting Corporation, which handles ticketing services  behind the scene for more than 130 airlines. It was adopted long ago to give customers a chance to address any second thoughts or for a travel agency to review and correct any issues.
Most  airlines and travel agencies still offer customers 24 hours to cancel and get a full refund. Companies don't go out of their way to inform you of this, which is why I'm here! If you get your ticket receipt via email, read the fine print- you'll most likely have to call for any chances.
Just keep in mind, that if making changes you can only book currently available fares!

Book Review

One of the best reads ever about travel is "Adventures of a Continental Drifter" by Elliott Hester. It's a re-account of his travels around the world and in his words "An around-the-world excursion into weirdness, danger, lust, and the perils of street food." This is one of the funniest books on travel out there.
This book is more about the crazy tales that traveling gives you. It will inspire you to explore areas of the world you never had considered before, like Addis Ababa in Africa or Mysore, India. This book was one of the reasons I was so excited when I visited Tallinn. I highly recommend this read, full of laughs and thought.

To get travel insurance or not?

People buy travel insurance mainly to protect their investment if they have to cancel a trip or get medical coverage when they're traveling abroad. Once you're outside U.S. borders, most private health insurance companies and Medicare don't provide any coverage, even in an emergency- a fact travelers tend to learn about only after their claims from foreign hospitals are rejected.
3 Main Types of Policies:
  • Package travel policies that offer multiple benefits, including coverage for trip cancellation, lost baggage, and emergency medical expenses.
  • Policies that cover only emergency medical care, either for a single trip or multiple trips within a year.
  • Medical evacuation policies, which cover primarily the cost of transportation to a decent hospital if you're injured or get sick.
If you're considering buying travel insurance, it's important to understand that it covers only precisely defined circumstances or events- and there are a lot of exceptions lurking in the fine print.
Travel insurance prices are based on a combination of factors: Age, amount of coverage, and cost/ length of trip. A general guideline is that package travel policies cost 4 to 7 of a trips price and medical policies cost roughly $20 to $50 for $50,000-$100,000 worth of coverage.

Travel Insurance Sellers:
Here are some of the main travel insurances providers in the United States. All sell insurance direct, but you can also purchase their policies through third parties, such as
  1. Access America
  2. CSA Travel Protection
  3. International Medical Group
  4. Medjet Assist
  5. Travel Guard
  6. Travelex
In the end, weather you travel insured or not is entirely up to you. My suggestion, ask yourself some key questions, like are you willing to cancel this trip for an emergency? And decide if the price of the trip warrants the additional cost of the insurance. The more expensive the trip, the more likely you NEED insurance. Finally, where are you traveling? If you're headed off to some place with less than reliable health care, like Honduras or Columbia then you may want the coverage.
Safe Travels!

Places for Travelrs Who like to Feel at Home: B&B or an Inn

The idea of staying at a bed and breakfast tends to elicit strong reactions among travelers. Many are decorated in a certain "ye old time-y" style or  a L.L. Bean catalog. It is for this reason, that many of these establishments are going to great efforts to avoid the title of B&B. They have take to preferring terms like, lodge, guest house, or inn. Outside of the U.S., the same type of accommodation might be called something else entirely: In France- chambre d'hote, In Italy- pensione or agriturismo
So basically, what we are talking about here is a smaller lodging establishment where the owner is involved in day-to-day operations and breakfast is served to guests. This usually involves some amount of mingling with other travelers and closer quarters then you'll find in a hotel.
The problem is that these places don't necessarily show up on Web sites that list bigger hotels and resorts, so here's how you go about finding them... and finding the right one for you!

Where to look:
For the traditionalism, start at, a site that claims to list more that 25,000 establishments around the World... however, most are in the U.S. Another web site,, smaller selection and slightly less polished but great to cross reference a potential booking.
Another strategy is to do an Internet search for your destination and "bed and breakfast" or "inn", which often turns up direct links to local establishments. The Professional Association of Innkeepers International also has links to state associations. Also, reference your guidebook. Those are well researched and trustworthy.
Questions you should be asking:
How many guest rooms are there?
Will you have to share a bathroom?
What's for breakfast?
What time can you eat?
Can you get Internet access?
What's the cancellation policy?
Are extra guests allowed?
Are there any common areas besides the dining room?
Is there a curfew?
Is the rate negotiable?
 Depending on what's most important to you will direct your decision.

How to camp like a pro.

I’ve put together a list of projects and ideas to help around the campsite, things that will make your camp-out easier. Lots here and I’ll be adding more goodies in future posts. Enjoy

1. Mildew remover spray:
                           Step 1: Mix 1/2 cup of Lysol in 1 gallon of hot water. Wash your tent with the solution (use a sponge) and let it air dry.
                            Step 2: Mix 1 cup salt and 1 cup concentrated lemon juice in 1 gallon of hot water. Wash again with this solution and let it air dry.

2. Starting a Fire:
     Don't have kindling? No problem. Always travel with a bag full of dryer lint! It's highly flammable and no chemicals needed!
     If you are starting a fire too cook with, there is another method. Save your cardboard egg containers and place a charcoal piece in each holder. Then when you light the cardboard it will burn slowly enough to catch the coals completely.
3. DIY Camp Kitchens:
     Here's a pretty comprehensive list. Check it out.
     Another idea is to buy a shower organizer for all your utensils.

    This one is the best! Old tic-tac containers to hold your spices and seasonings.

I'm sure there are a hundreds more as far as great camping tips go, but these are the ones that have served me best!

Camping Site Suggestions

Over the years I have gone on many epic camping trips. My friends from college and I have made it an annual trip. Mostly we have this lake in Central Kansas that we love: Lake Wilson It's a wonderful spot, and most people under estimate the beauty of Kansas. Here are some of my favorite pictures.

But I've been camping since I was 2months old, and all over this amazing country. Here are my top selections for roughing it in the great outdoors.

For the 1st timers:
Disney's Fort Wilderness- Discover charming woodland trails, a pristine beach, spectacular pool areas and rip-roarin’ entertainment at this picturesque backcountry retreat. Disney will even rent you the tent... and cots!
Yosemite National Park- This might seem like the quintessential camping location, perhaps too much for a first timer? Not at all! Permanent tent structures such as those available at Housekeeping Camp have the comfort and convenience of modern amenities.

Must See:
Glacier National Park- Enjoy the crackling of a campfire and sleep under the stars in Glacier National Park. With 13 different campgrounds and approximately 1,009 sites to choose from, options are plentiful.
The Black Hills- Footsteps from Mount Rushmore, the property is beautiful. I have lot of fond memories in this national park. My dad's favorite campground is the KOA, and I've never stayed a cooler one as a kid.

For the Pros:
Paonia, Co.- McClure Campground is located on the south side of McClure Pass. The historic town of Marble is nearby. The campground sits at the head of Lee Creek.
Parksville, Tn/Cherokee National Forest-This beautiful remote area offers mountain vistas, waterfalls and clear mountain streams and is a sanctuary for black bears. The 8,358-acre Big Frog Mountain Wilderness / Wilderness Study Area offers about 35 miles of backcountry trails. This natural setting provides outstanding opportunities for solitude and primitive camping, fishing and backpacking.

Backpacker's pantry

For a while now I've been interested in creating a reoccurring post about the joys of traveling BROKE... something I know all about. This is the first of those posts and it's all about a traveler's favorite experience: Food.
When traveling on an extreme budget, it's best to choose your meals wisely. I try to eat a solid breakfast, maybe even a local one. Then at lunch, pack your own! I like to shop at open air markets or a local grocery store. If you make or buy a type of trail mix or dry mix to snack on between meals. Finally, dinner is a best from a cheap cafe or dive bar.
Here's  what the type contain I just to travel with when I'm backpacking.  This image has a lot of junk mixed in it, but if you're buying from a market then you can pick up some local goodies!
Another good tip for cheap meals while traveling is favor packets like this.
These are a collection of mostly German brands, but they make more than sauce. Lots of great flavor packed up in one of these little envelopes. I've mixed them in with Eggs or just grounded meat. Them make some pretty killer burgers!

Look forward to the next post on Backpacker's post!

I'll have an Orlando, hold the theme parks

To a majority of the world, the City Orlando is synonymous with places like Disney, Sea World, and Universal... and those places are lovely. But do you ever wonder what the city would be like with those giant companies? What else does this city bring to the table?------ A whole lot!

The City of Orlando is comprised of several small townships, which like any major city. However, just like in New York City, these townships still feel a sense of pride and independence from the city as a whole. If you were to ask someone from Winter Garden where their from they would be quick to assure that Winter Park is NOT Orlando... despite it being mere minutes from the downtown area. So this post may require some maps, because I'll be list the sites by their township. And now, onto the hidden gems.

Yellow Dog Eats, 1236 Hempel Avenue  Windermere- The owners took a dilapidated farm house and turned it into one of the coolest sandwich shops in the world. Get the special (no mater what it is) if you're there before it runs out!
Hamburger Mary's, 110 West Church Street, Orlando- There are a couple of these out in the state, but this one is the best. The waitstaff is SASSY and your check comes in a pump... what more could you ask for?!
4 Rivers Smokehouse, 1600 W. Fairbanks Ave, Winter Park- Serving up traditional TEXAS smoked BBQ in a cafeteria style service. 
YumYum Cupcake Truck*, 3042 Eaglet Loop, Orlando- If you can find it, just be prepared for such awesomeness your tasted buds have never know!
    *If you are here on the right night, the city of Celebration hosts a Food Truck Night about once a month or so. 851 Celebration Ave. It's pretty epic!

The Wine Roon, 270 Park Ave S.  Winter Park- If you're a fan of wine, then stock up on some Advil for the next day! This place is pretty hip. You fill up a card with a desired amount of money and then each pour/tasting costs a certain amount. It's awesome for a Ladies Night.
Eye Spy, 54 North Orange Avenue  Orlando- It's hard to find, but it's worth it for the night of fun and mystery ahead of you!
Kitty O'Shea, 8470 Palm Parkway, Lake Buena Vista- A little close to Disney, but it's a total dive bar with the prices to match. One of the most affordable places you'll find here in Orlando.

Harry P. Leu Garden, 1920 N. Forest Ave, Orlando- This 50-acre botanical garden is Orlando's equivalent to The Secret Garden: a maze bursting with color and unusual greenery.
Wekiwa Springs State Park, 1800 Wekiwa Circle, Apopka- Pronounced Wahk-EYE-vah, it is a 7,000-acre park where the waters are crystal - clear and stay at a comfortable 72 degrees all year.
The Shops on Park Ave, Winter Garden- I love to just stroll along this area. The squares have hidden walkways and shops. There's even a French Pastry Shop!
Skycoaster, 2850 Florida Plaza Boulevard, Kissimmee -Good for you, go for it! Me, I'll keep my feet on the ground... but my friends rave about this gravity defying experience. Undoubtedly one of the scariest adventure activities in Orlando, the SkyCoaster slowly hoists you backwards with a cable 300 feet into the air. The cable stops and there you hang until on of the riders has to muster up the courage to pull the release cord, which sends riders plummeting toward the ground, then swings back and forth a few times.
Florida EcoSafaris, On my to do list, I'm really looking forward to a zipline next time I'm free in Orlando!

As you can plainly see, there's more to Orlando than roller coasters and character meet'n'greets... Also I still love Disney, look for that post soon ;)

Never risk it!

Your health is something that you should take serious, no matter where you travel. I was surprised by how much I didn't know! Make sure you know better than I do!,TravelQuiz

They're coming to the States!!!!

Chicago in April

Some of my friends are wanting to plan a girls' getaway in April. Since we're spread out across the country I've decided that a central destination is a good choice. We also want to have a place that meets all our need: Nightlife, Food, and Points of Interest. I've had a lifelong love affair with the city of Chicago, so it seemed a natural choice!
The Windy City is a great example of the midwest mindset meets big city living. The people are friendly and look you in the eye, while the shopping, dining and entertainment can't be beat. The mainstream tourists will hit all the must sees: The Bean at Millennium Park, The Field House Museum, and Navy Pier. I prefer the local side. Here are my Chicago Must Dos:

Chicago Pizzas and Over Grinders, 2525 N. Clark St.- They make the best pizzas upside down!
Twin Anchors, 1655 North Sedgwick St- It's hidden on the north end of Old Town, but the BBQ sauce will have you going in search for it again and again!
The Wiener Circle, 2622 North Clark St- Because who doesn't like to be cursed at while enjoying the best hotdogs in Chi-town.

Fair warning- I'm a pub and dives sort of girl, but Chicago has some of the nicest bars I've ever been too.
Big, 151 East Wacker Dr- A bit upscale for me, but so much fun. I'm definitely including this in the girl's weekend.
Mother Hubbard- 5 West Hubbard St- Sports Bar/Dive, the people are so friendly!
Cape Cod, ground floor of the Drake Hotel- The best bartender in the world has sadly retired, but this bar still has that something. Great place for a cocktail, and the bar that made me fall in love with Martinis!

Lincoln Park Zoo, 2001 N Clark St- Free to the public and the animals are all a bunch of showoffs!
Goose Island Brewery, 1800 North Clybourn Ave- The tours are harder to schedule, but the people there know their stuff.
The Second City, 1616 North Wells St- Catch a night of laughs from the people who brought you Sassy Gay Friend!

Travel Well Friends!

Not your Grandma's museum.

Admit it! Even as an adult, you hear the word "museum" and there is a lot of internal groaning. The fact is museums are boring build full of too much history and facts that simply take too much effort to process. "How long do I stare at this painting?" "Why is this place so depressing?!" I mean, we're all thinking it. But fear not, my friends! The winds of change are blowing.
In the last decade, a new breed of museums have been popping up across the world! These interactive, historical master pieces are changing the way tourism has approached storytelling for the last century or more. I liken it to Disney's Imagineering, because it starts from the concept design of a building and carries through to day guests pour through those doors. Every facset of the building is meant to enhance a visitor's journey, bring them into that specific time and place. Letting the visitors feel what was happening at that time.
There are 3 major museums that come to my mind when I think about this leap for tourism.

The National Holocaust Museum, Washington D.C.: Everything about this place is meant to transport you back to this terrible time and place. The tour starts on the ground floor where you board an elevator, stuffed to the max. You then watch a film, which sets the scene of Germany leading up to WWII. The doors open on the top most floor and you file out into a narrow hallway which leads you on a journey through the terrors of the Holocaust. You feel like cattle and the whole area is gray and muted in tones. It is truly bone-chilling. No windows. No doors. Trapped, just as the Jews must have felt.
A recreation of "the room of shoes", found in a German Concentration Camp.

Work Will Set You Free
The Sixth Floor Museum, Dallas: Built in the very building from which the assassination took place, the museums goal is to chronicles the assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy; interprets the Dealey Plaza National Historic Landmark District and the John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza; and presents contemporary culture within the context of presidential history. With both audio and visual counter parts, each visitor may work at their own pace.
From the 6th floor's most right window, the shot was fired.

The Grassy hill just off the parade route!
The National Civil Rights Museum, Birmingham: It begins with a video of post civil war activities, then the screen lifts away and you are able to walk through the lives of a segregated nation. Visit the places they worked or went to school. See the public areas of segregation. Then is transitions into a literal uphill battle as the civil rights movement begins and leaders step to the forefront. The most touching in the videos of the Freedom Riders, after they were mobbed and bombed. It was a little difficult to watch.

And these are only the beginning. Tourism is changing and it's for the better. We are a generation of technology and gadgets. It's important that tourism embraces this if it want to keep the public's attention for long.
Happy Travels!

Birmingham, Alabama

The weekend before Christmas I was able to get some time away from work and drive up to visit my best friend, Daniel in Birmingham. He had to work for most of the time, which was completely understandable and kinda fun because it left me free to explore this new place. What I found was very surprising!
It seems to me that this city is a small town that's simply expanded into the outlying small towns. There are lots of beautiful "downtown" districts with shops and restaurants. The city also has a ton of history, especially centering on the Civil Rights movement. But the most surprising part of all was the amount of green spaces there where. The city is littered with parks and squares, most notable was the Mountain Brook park which holds the zoo and the botanical gardens.

Here's my itinerary. I highly recommend visiting these places.

Day 1: Brunch at Tracy's in Five Points. This small village is a great area to relax and simply enjoy the beautiful day. I then took a walk through the park and admired the area. Birmingham has a lot of joggers so always be aware of who may be approaching you. By this time I was in desperate need of some coffee so I headed to the Mountain Brook village and strolled through the area with my Gingerbread latte. Saw several great places that I made note of wanting to visit in the future.
           Then I got into my car in search of the "downtown" but got very lost. See, Birmingham is at the foothills of the Smokey Mountains, so it's street twist and turn until you have no idea where it's taking you- I HIGHLY recommend a GPS in this city. I finally stumbled upon another park area- The Vulcan. It has breathtaking views of the city. It's a bit of a climb from where you park, but worth every moment of it.
            I wound down the evening by cooking in my friend's awesome kitchen, but had to run out for supplies. Groceries consist of Publix, Piggly Wiggly, and Walmart- but we found this great store called Western. They have an amazing wine selection and the guy working really knew his stuff. They didn't have the exact bottle I was looking for, but said they usually did and was able to make recommendations accordingly. I couldn't get over the level of service!
Day 2: Brunch at Bistro V in Vestavia Hills. This place is award winning and they hold the claim to the "Best Eggs Benedict in Birmingham" which won over Daniel right away! I had the brisket omelet, which came with grits- a first for me. Over all, very delicious- but I'm not sure I LOVE grits.
            A majority of the day was spent in the Downtown area, he knew how to get there! We walked along the freedom trail which hosted the civil rights march through the white districts of Birmingham. It lead us to Kelly Ingram Park. This park is an interactive walk-through of art and history to help visitors better understand exactly what activists went through on the march. Parts were a little terrifying for me, but overall a great tribute. The park is directly outside of The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. We visited on a Sunday and tours were free, but you may still donate. Please donate! It is well worth $5. This is one of the best museums I've ever visited.
              The night ended back in Mountain Brook village at one of the restaurants that had caught my eye... well, two restaurants actually! Avo & Dram, where I had the special: Roasted Boar Chops and Daniel had a burger. Both were cooked perfectly and even though the place was super busy, the service was good. Plus they carried one of our favorite wines: David Bruce Pinot Noir.

Even though this was a short trip, it was still fun. I had ample opportunity to explore and see the sights. I'm really looking forward to a return visit in the near future!

Happy New Year! Welcome 2013

Wow, I've been a terrible blogger the last few weeks! I can't believe the new year has come already. It seems like only yesterday when I was struggling to balance working 30hrs a week with 18credit hours and being president of a campus club. Now I work FULL-TIME for one of the largest Tourism companies in the world. I have a nice apartment and my car is... functioning. Live is good and I am grateful.
I'm not much for resolutions, but I resolve myself to think outside of the box this year. To find unique experiences for my guests and make great adventures for them. Of course, I want to get in better shape, everyone does; but my goal is to simply enjoy a healthier lifestyle. That means, stop eating so poorly and realize what I'm stuffing in my gob! And my biggest resolution is to be a better communicator- in all aspects of my life! Friends, Family, and Workplace.
Happy New Year to you!
