  1. Alternative Flight Services: Blackbird Air

    Alternative Flight Services: Blackbird Air

    $0.00

    As a frequent traveler, you can't possibly see the world without flying. Planes are essential to your lifestyle—and that's not a bad thing. But you might think it is, because flying is so unpleasant. You have to get to the airport three hours in advance, and wait in TSA lines that can take most of your day to get through. You're restricted by luggage and liquid requirements, and hit with unnecessary fees for services that should be offered as basic courtesy.

    Soviet Surprises in Tallin, Estonia

    $0.00

    If you sign up for a tour in Tallin, Estonia, you may encounter a few surprises. After finishing a lovely coffee break at a historic Viennese-style café, our small group strolled out into the cobblestone streets of Old Tallin. While admiring the flowery and flowing medieval architecture, we were suddenly jolted into another era. “Halt!” a man shouted! He was a uniformed police officer, who, with a heavy Russian accent, demanded that we “Stop taking photos!”  He pulled us aside and ordered us to present our passports and papers.  Our group members looked at each other wondering what could possibly be wrong.  “Be quiet! Stand against Wall!” The office demanded.  He then pulled out handcuffs and began hand-cuffing my friend.  We were all a little bit frightened (or at least uneasy) until we noticed that the hand-cuffs were wrapped in pink velvet!

    $0.00

    No one has ever explained to me why the hairs at the back of my neck stand on end when I listen to a choir in full voice, but, what I do know is that it’s a ‘good to be alive’ feeling all the same.

  12. Havana Street

    Havana, Frozen in Time

    $0.00

    Havana is absolutely beautiful. Such a classic and vintage city! As you walked down the street, the colorful vintage cars passed by on the street, more variety of colors in the buildings than ever, bicycles zooming by, and the smell of the ocean fills your nose! All of this “newer” city, taking almost 100 years to build, has been “frozen” since 1959. The city has received no maintenance, hardly even a paint job, for the last 50 years. There is truly a sense of cultural beauty without franchise name ads like McDonald’s, Starbucks, or KFC. Instead the shops and stores are all owned by “Ma and Pop stores”.

    Tips for Ranging Out Alone in Cuba

    $0.00

    Most probably, you will be traveling to Cuba with a group. Your trip will have been organized by professionals, and transportation and lodging will have been taken care of in advance.

    Depending on the size of the group, you will be picked up by a van or a bus belonging to one of the government run tourist companies. These vans and buses will be staffed with one or two drivers –depending on your immediate destination, whether the City, or a resort further away, that requires longer driving-- and a guide/interpreter who will accompany your group most of the time during your visit.

    Cycling with Critical Mass: San Francisco

    $0.00

    Pedaling around Civic Center Plaza, a carousel of exotic creatures rises and falls with the landscape. Reggae and rock music blares from speakers bungied onto rear racks. Bike bells ring, car horns complain, and onlookers hoot and holler and wave as over a thousand cyclists pass by. I turn into the plaza and stop to get a better look: there’s a guy in pink bikini bottoms, a guy with a long brown braid sticking straight out, a musical fish bike with cds for scales, and a lot of Pippi Longstocking socks. I’m in the middle of a Dr. Seuss bike parade. Its rush hour on the last Friday of the month in San Francisco, and this is Critical Mass.

A genuine connection that I made was with my roommate, Etienne Pretorius, a native of South Africa. Our relationship would lead me to an amazing journey to South Africa.

    When you begin your research to places you wish to venture, I strongly advise not to limit yourself to the “top ten things” from most visitor websites, but instead to find a novel indigenous to the area either fiction or non-fiction.  Goal - to gain a deeper understanding about the city and or country you wish to visit.

    Dateline 2014 Juneau Alaska: Part 1

    $0.00

     A smothering mattress - for it was far too thick to be a blanket- of enveloping fog and chill morning mist was just beginning to claw its way free from the Earth; as we few, we very few left of the once mighty band of explorers who previously swelled the opulent deck of the Norwegian Pearl peered anxiously towards the East in search of the winged chariot which would soon spirit us to the very apex of the Great White North (or at least to Mendenhall Glacier).

    So why am I telling you about a place in Florida that's not on the beach? Because it's really cool and is located in the “best walking town” in America according to “Walking Magazine.” Dunedin sounds like it should be in Scotland, but it is about 45 minutes from the Tampa Airport and believe me, you'll be pleasantly surprised at what this area has to offer.
