Backpacking Through Europe in the 1990s

Galina Nemirovsky | September 24, 2016 | Travel
Before TripAdvisor and Yelp, before cell phones and before 9/11, I had Let's Go Europe, an oversized bright yellow softcover book which served as our travel bible. In the summer of 1998, my boyfriend at the time and I backpacked through Europe. Completely contradictory to my naturally controlling...

5 Things I Discovered on My First Cruise

Karin E. Baker | September 23, 2016 | Travel
I never had much interest in going on a cruise, and I've noticed that that's a fairly common sentiment. If you fancy yourself the adventurous sort, or love delving into culture when you travel, it's easy to turn up your nose at the idea of spending your vacation time on a cruise.

Colorado Hot Springs Loop: Year-Round Soaking Beckons Roadtrippers

Joshua Berman | September 22, 2016 | Travel
It is Week Three of our month-long discovery trip through western Colorado. My wife, three daughters, and I are water-soaked, wizened road warriors, more than halfway through our quest to visit every major hot springs in Colorado. The car smells like sulphur and campfires; bathing suits and towels are draped over seat backs and we are on our way to the next set of pools.

Jeryl Brunner | September 22, 2016 | Travel
For many of us Anaheim makes us think of Mickey Mouse and Disneyland. After all, the theme park has drawn hundreds of millions of people since it opened in 1955. But unexpected treasures can be found just outside Disney's walls.

What Is Luxury Travel and Who Calls The Shots?

Dane Steele Green | September 22, 2016 | Travel
This is one of those cases where a term is used so often that it loses its meaning: "luxury travel." Almost anything today can be "luxury": travel, cars, apartments, food, spirits, clothes, Jacuzzis, rehab centers, and on Airbnb I found a listing described as a "luxury church." Thomas Aquinas is spinning in his grave on that one.

Shannon Ullman | September 20, 2016 | Travel
Going to an actual place of work doesn't have to be a bad thing, especially if that place happens to be in an interesting destination. There are a lot of odd jobs to be had in short periods of time and I have experienced picking up barista work in Thailand, farming work in New Zealand, hostel jobs in Europe and movie extra gigs in Vietnam.
