During our stay in Costa Brava, we tested accommodations at different price points. Here is a list of each of the places we stayed along with their pricing
We’ve been in Asia awhile. More specifically, we have been in Southeast Asia for quite some time. Perhaps too long. We arrived in Kuala Lumpur in February of 2013, thrilled to have escaped Central America. We felt instantly like we were home. And, here I am, writing the ten things I hate about Southeast Asia. […]
A few years ago I wrote a guest post about being a big chested woman traveler. A recent incident happened to me in Danang, though, which made me realize it is time to revisit the topic of traveling with big breasts.
I have been watching travel TV shows for years, looking for inspiration, living vicariously through the hosts. I remember spending the weekends in the basement of our Chicago condo while planning our first round the world trip, watching GlobeTrekker, Samantha Brown, Rick Steves, and Anthony Bourdain.

At least they waited until our second flight. After attentive customer service while on the ground in Amman, due to some Twitter […]
We are Air Asia frequent fliers. We have gotten some great deals on flights. I was surprised, however, to hear about the Air Asia Island Transfer Service, which allows you to pay for a flight, bus ticket, and ferry, all at once to help you get to various islands throughout Thailand. Although a little hesitant to […]
