While there may not be as many kinds of trips as there are travelers, there’s certainly a variety of reasons for why people travel.

If you could choose a warm and exotic destination to fly to within the next few months, what would that be? And please, leave Mexico and the Caribbean out of the question now (not that we don’t like those places, but now it’s all about exotic!). Thailand definitely springs into mind. Bangkok is one of the most tourist-friendly cities in Asia and a great introduction to the Thai and Asian culture. Did I mention the weather in lovely there right now? So what are you waiting for?

Do you remember the months after Crocodile Dundee came out? Every person and their mother wanted to go to Australia. And then they looked at a map and realized that is was slightly further away than Alabama and slightly more expensive to travel to. Ah, the sound of travel plans shattered by money and distance. It is one that brings sadness to my ears. We’ve all experienced it.
The good news is that even without the Croc man on the big screen Australia is still a desirable place to ... [read more]

Gone are the small little alleys and side streets that were unique to Beijing. In are new, modern buildings, an improved infrastructure and an increasing number of residents living a middle class ...

Even if you live on the West Coast of the United States it is a long way to China, Japan and Vietnam. Modern airplanes have cut the travel time but you’re still looking at a ten-hour plus flight. That is great if you enjoy breathing stale air at 50,000 feet while you are forced to watch a Will Farrell movie (I swear, every plane I have been on for the past three years has shown one), but if you are adverse to flying or don’t have a ton of vacation days ...
