I Want To Go There: An Airplane Hotel High Above The Costa Rican Jungle

There’s first class and then there’s FIRST CLASS.

Joining the mile high club just got so much easier thanks to the genius who decided to turn an emptied-out Boeing airplane from the 1960s into a hotel suite situated high above the Costa Rican jungle. Keep reading »

Mommie Dearest: Tales Of An American Mom Traveling Abroad

Mommie Dearest: Tales Of An American Mom Traveling Abroad

I’ve been out of the country for the past two weeks, spending almost the entirety of that time in Israel. Along the way, I’ve learned some interesting things about taking an extended global trip while parenting.

Contrary to what you might think, there are some pretty sweet perks to traveling with a child. I made the trip out to Israel with just my son and while there are some challenges traveling as a solo parent, I also noticed some up sides. People tended to treat us with more patience and kindness then when I travel solo (and I do, often). We bypassed regular TSA security to go in the fast lane, where shoes blissfully remain on and you don’t need to take out laptops or toiletries. We were also allowed to board first if we wanted to, we got meals served to us earlier, and there were more smiles and less scowls from airline employees —  although perhaps this is just an Air France thing? They were pushing the free booze … Keep reading »

11 Things You Have To Do While Studying Abroad

If you don’t want to hear a rambling soliloquy of stories that have nothing to do with you, don’t ask me about Australia. Not only will I blabber about about it for hours on end to anyone that asks (or doesn’t), I will try to strike up a conversation with any stranger in my near vicinity who has a whiff of an Australian accent. But in my defense, I just really, really loved my study abroad experience. I made friends for life, did things I thought I would never do (um, hi skydiving) and truly had some of the most epic nights I can (barely) remember. So in case I was too subtle, I recommend studying abroad. But a great experience doesn’t just start and end with a passport. Here are some things you need to do to have that “Crap, I really wish I got a green card” experience:

I love traveling — it’s basically why I work. That, and to feed my cat. But sometimes it’s difficult to scrape together enough money to get on your way — plane tickets are murderously expensive and it can be impossible to take time off work. And that’s why, when I’ve gone through a stretch of not traveling, I like to read a travel memoir or two. If nothing else, a good travel book can help you figure out where you’d like to go when you actually have the time, money and inclination. And come on, you were sick of re-reading Eat Pray Love, weren’t you?

So we’ve compiled some of our absolute favorite travel books, so you can go around the world in 180 pages (ugh, sorry). Check out our list–along with picks from some of our travel writer and author friends–and share your favorites in the comments. Keep reading »
