Beer in Situ: Something Brewery (Brighton, CO, USA)

Originally posted on Reverse Retrograde:
The Pertinents 117 N Main St A, Brighton, CO 80601, USA Founded in 2012 The Space It’s a big bar with a lot of space, and it feels very modern for the quaintness of downtown Brighton. I liked the ‘porch’ on the front of the place, so that you could sit outside and enjoy the amazing skies Eastern Colorado offers. They have long opening hours and a breathalyzer in the back, just in case. It’s clear that they’ve done a great job bringing in a slightly different crowd from your average hipstery brewpub, and that they work in the community to foster ties as Brighton grows and changes. Every night of the week has a different theme, from flip night to Cards Against Humanity. The Beer Overall, good. Not awesome, but good. They have created a line of tea-infused beer that is interesting and fresh-tasting, and vanilla seems to play a big role (at least in the beers we tried). The smooth¬†Charon’s Obol is a yummy Irish Red Ale. I…

Havana Nights

Originally posted on Charlotte Fox:
always making new friends ūüėõ Happy New Year to all!! I went to Havana, Cuba with friends to ring in the New Year and I’m so happy I went! We had a really great group (very different from the solo travel I’ve done this year) but it’s always fun when you have a good crowd around you that’s enthusiastic about the same things as you. Havana was very inviting… we actually hired a driver for our stay which I definitely recommend doing. Ricardo made everything so simple and we kind of bonded with him. One night we realized one of our friends wasn’t actually in the car when we got to our next destination and our driver was so scared but we found her. haha. After that we joked with him about “counting all the chickens” when we got in the taxi. He was even nice enough to invite us over for New Year’s Eve celebrations with his family. Part of the celebration included teaching us dances and at the…

The Legian Bali really made me enjoy my quick holiday on Bali. The property offers not only brillant pools and very nice suites, but comes with a service, which is out of this world! My first impressions could hardly be any better. Stay tuned for an extensive review here on traveluxblog!

¬†Follow¬†my instagram¬†for more of the above photos¬† Dear Reader, If you’ve been reading my blog for any period of time, you likely know my¬†opinion¬†on California is not very¬†favorable. That being said, I am here until I leave for France (next week!!) and have been trying my hardest to see the best in everything. In a turn of events, I have succeeded to an extent thanks to my newfound addiction to film photography. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks taking pictures of things I find beautiful here (feat. my¬†incredible¬†friend and muse Shawn/love for neon signs). I¬†hope you¬†find¬†them beautiful too.

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…

A Paradise of Foods, and Summerland Fruit Stands.

Originally posted on HappyHealthyHouseholds:
Guests, a home full of extra babies, sister, great friends and love. Fruit stand hoping, camping, beaches, still guests, and I might have even got married in the midst of it all! So much has happened already and we are really just headed into the 2nd full week of summer holidays (3rd full week for some!) We have packed so much summer into such a short period of time, I feel like we are much farther in than the 11th of July. So remember that one time, I talked about all the excitement of the season of fruit stands and farmers markets? Here in the Okanagan there is really no shortage. While we were lucky enough to have the other half of HHH stay with us an extra week after the wedding, I also had Jeff… the HUBBY… off for a week on holidays as well! What better time to get a few things crossed off my producey-bucket-list. So fruit stand hoping we did. The first round consisted only of 4…

4 Vital Points for a Cheaper Japan Travel

Originally posted on Stylishwanderer.com:
Japan has an image of being one of the most expensive countries in the world, and if you‚Äôre 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…

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.…

Traveling Is My Therapy

Originally posted on Sublunar Reflections:
I do my best thinking when I travel. Whether it’s a short commute to work or a bus ride out of town for the weekend, I feel like that absence from being somewhere, that constant state of motion, really helps me to focus. When I‚Äôm traveling I can let my mind wander, let my thoughts come to me naturally. I can give up control for a few minutes while someone else drives and just feel. I remember once, when I was living abroad in Belgium, I was having a particularly bad day. In that moment I felt my homesickness as a sharp ache, a heavy feeling on my heart that I couldn‚Äôt seem to shake. So I got up, left my house, and even though I had no where in mind to go, I took the tram from the end of my block all around the city. The whole time I felt like I was on the verge of tears, but watching the scenery streak by out the window for…
