When it comes to traveling, the best motto is probably “Keep It Simple, Stupid.” It’s really easy to overwhelm yourself by packing too many things, or making too many plans.

There are little things you can do to make the most out of your travel experience — whether you’re going to the next city over, or around the world. After the jump, 26 travel tips that’ll help you get the most out of your next vacation. Keep reading »

Our “The Great Gatsby” obsession just reached a fever pitch: the Plaza Hotel in New York City has debuted a suite that will transport you right to the Roaring Twenties. Filled with grey and sea foam tones, Deco-furniture and chandeliers, the Fitzgerald Suite — so named for The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda Fitzgerald — on the hotel’s 18th floor also features a library nook and a built-in bar (natch). The 700-square-foot suite was designed by Catherine Martin, set designer for the upcoming Carey Mulligan/Leonardo DiCaprio “Gatsby” remake. The only problem is that at $2,795 a night, the Frisky staff will only have to pool all our collective rent money to afford it. Boo!

I hate flying. Hate it. Just thinking about being on an airplane makes my lungs tighten and my blood pressure rise. I’ve flown many times before (across the country, across the Atlantic, etc.), but it’s never been remotely pleasant for either me or the person stuck sitting next to me. I cry, I hyperventilate, I get diarrhea, I grip the arm of my poor seatmate. I actually once canceled a vacation to San Francisco and Los Angeles because I was too afraid to fly alone.

Yeah. It’s bad.

For me, my fear of flying isn’t so much about the fear of being in the sky, but about claustrophobia: the fear of being in a confined space in a long period of time with no way to leave. Although I realize it’s very different, for the past couple of years I’ve tried to train myself on stalled subway cars or trains to take calming breaths and not freak out. But even that challenge is difficult. Keep reading »

When it comes to people-watching (and its astrological variation: sign spotting!), you really can’t beat the airport. There are so many intriguing people from all over the world converging at the same terminals, food courts, and painfully long security lines. In keeping with the theme of Wanderlust Week, we though it would be fun to do a roundup of how to spot each sign at the airport. Which sign is trying to charm the desk agent into a first class upgrade? Which sign is making a scene at the TSA checkpoint? Which sign just realized they forgot their passport? Read on to find out… Keep reading »

A few weeks into my relationship with “Ben,” I left town for about two months. The week after we moved in together, I left again. Every couple comes into a relationship with baggage, but mine was a little more literal. I’m a travel writer, and my job sends me on the road regularly. As much as it’s awesome to go to Mexico City or Copenhagen to report stories, my on-and-off travel schedule has made it hard to build relationships. And when it came to building a relationship with a dude I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, I had to learn how to make it work – even when “it” was an ocean away.

In some ways, our relationship is just like any other long-distance relationship. We chat on Skype, keep in touch on IM, and make a point of checking in just to talk about normal stuff like what kind of mischief the cat has been up to. But it’s hard to get rid of the guilt I feel when I’m sitting on a beach or in an outdoor café when I know that Ben is chained to his computer at the office or going to boring meetings.

You’re paying hundreds of dollars a night to escape from your lumpy mattress and your cranky neighbors and your mold-stained shower that you don’t feel like cleaning and your pile of laundry that you’re actively trying to avoid.

Below, some tips for getting the most bang for your buck in your hotel room. Keep reading »
