Unusual Things To Do in Bristol Bristol, you sassy thing, you. You’ve always been hard to define. All pastel palette pretty in some quarters yet home to subversive Banksy in others. So close to London yet with an accent so far away it may as well be another language, me babbers. Bursting with…

One Teacher’s Summer Plan: Solo Travelling to Tel Aviv

Categories: Best OfTravelingBody: When you’re a teacher, you spend the whole school year in the four corners of your classroom with your students. However, when it’s summer, you get the chance to temporarily leave that classroom and explore a new place.  Travelling solo has been on the rise and is becoming a trend.

Coworking in Marrakech, Morocco with Flexpat

Becoming a digital nomad and being location independent with the ability to work anywhere is a dream for most. It’s a dream I had years ago and made it happen. I’ve worked from around the world for years and loved it. Last week I was in Marrakech and for the first time ever, went into an overseas coworking space. Coworking in Marrakech with Flexpat changed my idea of what it’s like working around the world. To say a coworking space is beneficial for a location independent digital nomad is an understatement. One of the biggest problems digital…

Lisbon totally exceeded our expectations! Here’s what we did.

What we did on our trip to Lisbon, Portugal We’ve returned from our trip to Portugal and have several memory cards filled with photos and video from our time exploring this under-rated European nation. We spent 2 days in Lisbon before making our way north to Porto, where we joined a river cruise up the Douro River. Initially, when we learned our river cruise itinerary began in Lisbon, not Porto, we were a little confused. On the surface, it made more sense to have guests arrive at …

Texas Road Trip – Houston

This week I’m once again working with Marriott International and my good friend Brendan Van Son, but this time instead of Route 66 we’re exploring more of the great state of Texas. Although I’ve visited a couple of times in the past, I’ve never really experienced very much of the state which is why I was so excited for this new adventure. The first city on my trip was Houston, a destination that I don’t think gets …

7 Ways to Fake a First Class Experience in Economy

Long-haul flights are the worst. If you’re on a 10-hour flight, cramped up with legroom that even a dog couldn’t fit in, food that is only fit for a prison cafeteria, in seats that I can only imagine are filled with more germs than a toilet, you’re in for one hell of a ride (literally). But…

Flight Into Timelessness

I’ve been wanting to fly business on JAL since practically the day I posted my ANA business class review last year. But while I took several economy flights on the carrier (and a couple in the interesting “Class J” cabin offered on domestic Japan routes) during late 2017 and early 2018, it wasn’t until a few days …

We went on Sunday and our driver picked us up from The Veranadah Resort and drove us to English Harbour in English Harbour Town. There we met with another group who were…

Unusual Travel Types Most Of Us Can Relate To

In spite of what Instagram may lead us to believe, nothing in this world is perfect. There are no perfect people, places or even experiences. Just like any aspect in life, travel mimics that imperfection in nearly every way, many times serving as a mirror to our own unique personalities. Even those of us who consider travel to be their jobs have not mastered the art and science of seeing the world, and anyone who says differently is lying…
