Last week I wrote about having a change of heart and our decision to head to Oktoberfest.
With the big festival ending in Munich the week before, we decided to head to an American version in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Some of you might wonder- why Oklahoma? My typical answer when asked why I am going to a place is, why not? (With a variety of travel goals and one being to visit every state in America, this would get one more checked off the list!) Continue reading
Over Lucas first 2+ years traveling, he’s visited just a shade under 50 airports.
Over this time we’ve come across some airports which have really fun play areas for kids. As great as these play areas can seem, there have also been times where we’ve had to avoid or distract Lucas from seeing them. When you’re in a rush to catch a flight, there isn’t always time for a play pit-stop! Continue reading
Earlier in the year I wrote about a couple of options to become the owner of your own town! Sounds pretty cool and what’s more impressive than saying you own a town…
There was a European town available at the bargain basement price of $0 although it would certainly cost a small fortune to bring it back to live-in condition. If you are more interested in staying close to home, a town in the U.S. was going for a cool $1.5 million. This one came with a general store along with some other buildings in better shape than the one in Europe. Continue reading
I’ve been buying less and less offers from deal a day sites like Groupon and Living Social over the past couple of years however here is one that might interest some of you.
Living Social is offering a deal with Virgin America where you can save up to $50 on an upcoming flight! Continue reading
Twitter has been an amazing tool for interacting with companies, (virtually) meeting new people, winning various prizes and for doing something as simple as following news stories.
Could you imagine using Twitter to tweet yourself to freedom? Well that just what an American tourist in London did. Continue reading
When I think of Airbnb, another option to find budget accommodations when we can’t find a hostel or hotel that feels right comes to mind. In places with limited options it can open up the possibility to loads of places to stay.
But what if you looked at Airbnb in a different way? Continue reading
Last week Kim, Lucas and I had a very nice stay at IHG’s Even Hotels in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Some of you might wonder why we’d go out of our way to stay in Norwalk. The area actually has an excellent children’s museum and a few other things to do close by. However, the real reason was to complete one of my offers for the Into the Nights promo. Continue reading
Back when I was in school I always excelled more in English & Social Studies than /Math & Science. I probably consider Social Studies/ History to be my favorite subjects.
While it’s been some time since I’ve been in school (even grad school for that matter), I’d still like to think that I’d do well with basic US history questions. Continue reading

I love coming across different kinds of “hacks”. Whether they be useful in everyday life or to help with my travel obsession, it’s always great to learn a new trick or two.
I came across an article (with a video) from Yahoo Travel which shares a few hotel travel hacks. Only one of these tips was new to me while the other two I wouldn’t typically think of as a hack. Continue reading
