Ebola Outbreak Information

index

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. The CDC is warning travelers to “avoid non essential travel’ to Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone as well as alerting travelers to “practice enhanced precautions in […]

The Ailing Airplane

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. To that end, I manage to fly the air without bringing a cold home. After international flights, however, I’m not always so lucky. Let’s face it. With the small enclosed […]

To piggyback off the last post, we thought we’d share some of our favorite free language translation applications we use when we travel to foreign lands. Translator with Speech: With over 54 languages to choose from, this application is very much like iMessage. It also picks up words and phrases very easily in the audio […]

Say what?

If you think you can travel without a basic knowledge of your destinations’ native languages, you should give it another thought. Westernization has definitely made an impact across the world.

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.

Thanksgiving is an ideal time to visit with family while sharing your love for Grandma Lena’s homemade mashed potatoes, but we have a better idea. 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 […]

I’ll be leaving in the fall, oh!

Autumn is upon us, and there are so many great places across the world that amplify the beauty of the fall. My suggestion? As a person from north Georgia, I’d personally recommend cracking a beer and surrounding yourself in the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains by traveling to Asheville, NC. Asheville is known for being […]

Day of the Dead

Some of the best times to travel are during the holidays, but when we think “holidays”, we tend to focus on our own winter holidays. While we know different cultures celebrate different holidays, we would get so much out of traveling if we experience those foreign holidays first hand. Since our Halloween is coming up, […]
