TRAVEL TIPS

No one does Christmas like London does. I don't care what you say. The city is filled with festive decor, amazing Christmas markets, delicious food, strong cocktails, and endless activities. The days might be cold and short, but the warm glow of Christmas lights at nig...

Traveling during the holidays is an expensive nightmare. So why do people even bother? Most would say they brave it to see family or escape the cold, but for me, if I decide to venture into the chaos, it's because I'm out of vacation days. Not joking. I put up with ins...

I'm sitting here searching hotels for my next trip and I keep coming across open concept bathrooms. Why are these becoming more and more popular? I get that glass walls make the room appear larger, but I'd rather feel cramped than watch my co-worker clean their crotch...

I’m a frugal diva. I'll admit it. I like nice things, but I refuse to pay full price for them. Travel is no exception. Whether it's flights, hotels, food, or spas, I can always find a way to enjoy luxury items for less.

Oh, Express Deals. I have such a love-hate relationship with them. On one hand I can save a ton of money, but on the other I'm taking a big non-refundable risk.

If you're not familiar with Express Deals, they are heavily discounted hotel rooms on Priceline. The only cat...

The trick to a cheap trip is to limit yourself to a carry-on bag or large personal item. Stop freaking out. It’s possible, people.

Most major transatlantic airlines will allow a personal item, a carry-on, and one or two checked bags, but their flights can be hella...

The first time I stayed at a hostel was during my first trip abroad in 2009. I was 22 years old, completely alone, and absolutely clueless. Please keep in mind that the internet was at a much different level back then. This is back when Blackberry phones were the most...
