No Carry On, No Problem: A Travel Hack for Budget Airlines

July 13, 2017

Even though you know 3 Ways to Travel like a Pro, sometimes ending up on a budget airline is inevitable.  With such cost-effective fare, you lose the luxuries other airlines provide unless you’re willing to pay a hefty fee. I recently flew Spirit and the cost to take a carry-on roundtrip was damn near close to another flight! To make matters worse, they had just reduced the size of their free personal item to “18 x 14 x 8 inches (45 x…

July 6, 2017

Many of us wish to travel but often don’t do so because of the many costs associated.  But what if I told you that you could take these trips by simply making these (3) slight adjustments to your current thought process & lifestyle.

Adventures in Puerto Plata, D.R.

June 8, 2017

This year, thanks to a deal my friend &  I discovered on Groupon brought us to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

A Labor Daycation

August 31, 2016

Summer ’16 you’ve had an amazing run but with all good things must come to an end.  In reality, this means nothing to us in South Florida except being most people’s last 3-day weekend of the year; the rest of the world is trading back in their swimsuits & sandals for layers and coats with the season’s official wrap this Monday. From previous posts you all know I’m definitely not one to pass on taking the opportunity to travel; as normally with extended weekends (whether holiday or self-created) come Friday I would be on…

Waves, Caves & Flying Fish

June 6, 2016

Every year on the Friday before Memorial Day you’ll find me with passport in hand & bag packed; ready to escape the city for the extended weekend. This year the destination was the beautiful island of Barbados. With an informative yet anxiety filled cab ride to the hotel; the taxi driver filled me in about the different parishes of the island, historical buildings, various attractions, events, and most importantly the whimsical method of giving way at the roundabouts. Exploring the…
