A Survival Guide to Dining Alone

When I first set out on my lone travels, one of the things that worried me was going out for dinner on my own. I was worried about things like what I would do while I was eating? Would people feel sorry me for being on my own? Would I be bored? All of these things seem so silly now, because after a while, eating alone became one of my favourite things to do. If you are worried about dining out alone, here are some top tips to get you through it....more

Travel: Bisons in Traffic & Other Fun at Yellowstone

One of the main reasons to visit Yellowstone, aside from Old Faithful Geyser and beautiful scenery, is the wildlife. From Day 1 at the park, we were constantly scanning the forest, the meadows, the valleys, and the riverbeds for wildlife. We had our hawk eyes on so much that when we got back home to New Jersey we were still looking around while driving, just out of habit....more

I Was a Tourist In My Own City (NYC Double Decker Bus Tour)

A few months ago, my grandma casually mentioned that she's always wanted to go on a Double Decker Bus tour around NYC. She's lived in Brooklyn for 20 years now but has never been on one of those tours. Conveniently enough, her birthday was coming up and I decided to take her on the tour. Maybe she planned it that way all along. Hmmm.......more

A few minutes spent on any sailing-type website is pretty much enough to make you want to book your ticket to paradise.

Home Town Tourist: Chicago's Navy Pier

I've lived in Chicago for going on 12 years now. And although I've lived here for so long there are quite a few touristy (and even local) things that I haven't done. I've never been to a Cubs game (I know GASP!) nor a Bears game. I've never gone to the Southside St. Patricks Day Parade. Last year was my first time going to the Festival of Lights Parade and I've never gone to a music festival here in the city. I typically stay away from touristy things in the city because it truly is part of my love/hate relationship with Chicago....more

Would You Like Fries With That? How to Eat While Abroad.

The meal consisted of what looked like red tofu surrounded by a red sauce, white thin noodles and herbs (or was it a vegetable?) that looked like twigs. It was piping hot, almost as hot as the air around me, and my lips immediately swelled with the heat of it.I later found out the ‘red tofu’ was actually coagulated blood….and when you bite in to it...it gushes....more
