Top 7 Disney Park Tips! 

Originally posted on Me, Myself and Everything Else:
I’ve been thinking about this post for what seems like forever now and am so excited to finally be sharing it! I’m sure I’ll be back with more because we all know I’ll post this and immediately think of another tip… Anyways! Let’s get real, Nick and I love Disney! We always have. We both loved it when we were younger and together, the love has just grown more! Disneyland was one of the first big trips Nick and I ever took together and then Disneyworld was the first really big trip we took together! We always have the best time and now we still pinch ourselves that we live so close! And no, we don’t get sick of it! If anything, it makes it better in my opinion because on days where its just so crazy and we don’t feel like waiting in line, we don’t have to! We can enjoy what we want and then go somewhere else! No stress of super long days! I’ve…

Do Yourself a Favor and Buy That Damn Plane Ticket Already

“Travel is never a matter of money but of courage.  I spent a large part of my youth traveling the world as a hippie. And what money did I have then? None. I barely had enough to pay for my fare. But I still consider those to have been the best years of my youth.The great lessons I learned has been precisely those that my journeys had taught me.” -Paulo Coelho I know you. You look through countless of travel blogs, browse through the travel section of the bookstore, read Lonely Planet guidebooks, and National Geographic magazines. You’re in love with city maps, atlases, and globes. You get shivers down your spine when you run your fingers down the tiny blood veins on a map as if it was breathing and coming alive. And it says to you, “Buy a god damn ticket and explore me.” But you don’t, because you look out the window and you’re in the 22nd floor of a building and your sitting in your cubicle with a deadline…

How to Spend One Week in Barcelona

Українська | English Привіт-привіт! Ой як же непросто після двотижневої  подорожі в сонячну Іспанію повернутися додому, в домашню рутину, а тим більше попрощатися з літом. Але куди подінешся – час не питає дозволу йти собі далі. Лишається переглядати фото з відпустки і поринати в солодку ностальгію. Свою відпустку ми з чоловіком спланували ще весною, як і годиться завбачливим туристам,  –  заздалегідь  придбали квитки на літак (ми летіли іспанським лоукостом Iberia), забронювали готелі, визначилися з маршрутом подорожі та розробили детальну екскурсійну програму. Скажу наперед, що спочатку ми планували відвідати три місця – Барселону, Тоссу де Мар (бл. 100 км на північ від Барселони) і мальовничий Кадакес неподалік Франції (в цьому містечку жив і творив Сальвадор Далі разом зі своєю музою Галою, там же знаходиться його будинок-музей). Ідея щодо останнього народилася спонтанно після покупки аромату Sea & Sun in Cadaques Salvador Dali.  Щоб задовольнити цікавість з приводу містечка Кадакес, полізла у Вікіпедію, де й дізналась, що воно дуже красиве і атмосферне, з милими білосніжними будиночками. Однак до Кадакеса ми, на жаль, так і…

What to Pack for a 3-Day Getaway

Have you ever wondered what to pack for a three-day vacation, only to realise that you have over-packed your bags despite planning early and ahead of time? Yeah, that happens to me quite frequently. Also, I don’t travel often so mistakes are inevitable. For every five websites I visited, each would tell me the necessary clothing I should bring on my three-day vacation, from swimsuits to evening gowns. But they rarely ever touch on what are the activities and/or hobby items that you can pack when you’re away for only a handful of days.

My Ultimate Travel Bucket List Destinations

Although I could probably put almost every city in every country (not even kidding!) on my travel bucket list, I will stick to the ones that are calling my name the strongest. I would also love to hear your own bucket list destinations! Tokyo, Japan I’d love to visit Tokyo, not just because I have a deep passion for sushi, but because it seems like a crazy, chaotic city, with lots of culture. I can’t wait to stay in one of their ‘capsule’ hostels, eat at the robot restaurant and visit the Harajuku district to see everyone dressed in the craziest fashions.

Prague is also one of Eastern Europe’s inexpensive cities that will be sure not to break the budget.

Airline Review: American Airlines (Regional First)

Originally posted on travelux:
The American Airlines regional First Class is available in several different configurations. This review features the American Airlines Airbus A321 First Class. To be precise, the review features the “normal” Airbus A321 First Class, not the one used on the transcon flights! Yet, the product is absolutely solid! American Airlines regional First Class is without any doubt one of the most comfortable ways to get around in the US. Airplane: Airbus A320 Cabin Class: Economy Daytime: Evening Food: Snack Seat Pitch: 38 Inch (97 Centimeter) Seat Width: 21 Inch (53 Centimeter) After spending some time in the amazing Qantas First Class Lounge Sao Paulo, which I was able to access with a companion due to my oneworld Emerald status, I boarded the American Airlines regional First Class for the first time. The American Airlines regional First Class comes with four seats per row In this airline review I’ll actually feature not only this particular flight from Los Angeles to Dallas, but also the return flight two days later! For what it’s worth, we’ve also…

How to Choose the Perfect Travel Buddy

Originally posted on Becca's Journey:
Solo travel isn’t for everyone and sharing the experience with a friend can bring you closer together and leave you with long lasting memories… or it can be a total nightmare. I’ve travelled with a few different people over the past few years and here is my guide to ensuring you have the perfect travel partner. Budget: If you both have similar budgets it will be a lot easier to choose places to eat, accommodation types and activities. For example if you’re on a tight budget then you’ll obviously be staying in cheap hostels and seeking out cheap meals and free or cheap activities. However, if your travel buddy has tons cash to splash, then it’s going to be awkward when they really want to do something that you can’t afford. Sleep: I like to sleep in and generally when I’m travelling I still like to sleep in a little bit, especially if I’m out late. If you like to sleep for half the day and your travel bud…

4 Vital Points for a Cheaper Japan Travel

Originally posted on Stylishwanderer:
Japan has an image of being one of the most expensive countries in the world, and if you’re staying in hotels, eating out, and traveling around a lot, then it can really cost you a bomb. It is never going to be as cheap as other destinations and while it may be an expensive country to visit, there are plenty of ways to make this country affordable. To me, budget travel is value travel. So, I have listed 4 vital points on how you can cut down the costs and make this country affordable: 1.) TRANSPORTATIONTransportation is one of the most expensive aspects of travel in Japan and this will surely eat up your pennies. The bullet train, while awesome, comfortable, and fast, is not cheap at all. Individual rail journey can cost hundreds of dollars when added altogether. So in order to reduce your train costs, get a Japan Rail (JR) pass.I repeat, do get a JAPAN RAIL PASS and here’s my BIG NOTE: You only can buy this pass outside of Japan and only people on a…

22 Travel Tips We Learned the Hard Way So You Don’t Have To!

Originally posted on The Adventures of Paul and Sue:
Throughout our travels we have made plenty of mistakes. Here’s a list of travel tips we’ve learned the hard way so you don’t have to! Tell your bank where you’re going so you can use your bankcard there. Get good walking shoes.  Shop at local supermarkets and cook for yourself. Locals don’t eat out all the time and neither should you! Buy a small backpack, forcing yourself to pack light. Always pack as light as you can. Pack a needle and thread.  When you go out, take only the bare essentials. Bring the amount of cash you plan on spending. Don’t bring your bankcards and passport with you every time you leave the place you are staying. Make extra copies of your passport, flight info. and other important documents. Put these copies in different bags and if you’re traveling with a buddy; carry a copy their documents and vice versa. If something happens you will be able to get a new passport easily. Pack a flashlight or headlamp.…

Transportation in Paris

Originally posted on travelux:
Transportation in Paris is not very easy to understand for tourists as not only the city is very big, but also comes with several different means of transportation. Transportation in the city centre is operated not only by the metro, trams and buses, but also partly by RER trains, which are kind of a commuter rail service. Find more content about Paris on our city page! Paris is one of the biggest cities in the world and also a real centre for tourism. All of that makes transportation in Paris a crucial thing. However, the city didn’t really streamline the transportation system, making it rather tough to understand till today. Paris has different train stations Getting to Paris got easier in the last years though as there are not only the two main airports Paris Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly, but also several high-speed railway connections to cities like Madrid, London, Brussels or Frankfurt. Surely, there are also several regional train services connecting Paris with cities in the approximate. RER…
