Hi Travelers! The holidays are before us- Thanksgiving is just a week away! Families will soon be reunited, and you better believe airports will be packed!

The Ebola outbreak has made international news, and all the information can be a little overwhelming. Thankfully, the CDC’s website is thorough, informative, and a great source for travelers.

In recent years, airplanes have been exposed and their filth, revealed. I pride myself on my outstanding immune system; I rarely feel under the weather.

This last week in Chicago has been pretty eventful. I was about to hop out of a cab the other night when a woman frantically jumped in and yelled that she had just been mugged. She also said she was punched in the head and started to file a police report. Since my friend and […]

In view of the fact that I’ve been suggesting fall travel destinations, I thought I’d include a city I recently visited, two days ago! Indianapolis, Indiana is a perfect fall destination.

Wouldn’t it be fun to do a Throwback Thanksgiving where it all began, in Plymouth, Massachusetts? Where it all began: Maybe. Plymouth, Massachusettes is home to Plymouth Rock, the Pilgrim […]
