How to Ensure the Safety of the Airlines?

Anil Verma ·
Traveling via the air is becoming more often for the explorers to explore the horizons of any part of the earth, then the reason or purpose of the visit does not matter.

How can Selected Accommodation Improve Vacation ?

Bob Pitter ·
While most people put so much effort in picking out a country to travel to, as well as, in picking out sights to tour, they often overlook selecting a proper accommodation.

It Can Give You a Taste of the Authentic Culture Depending on where you choose to stay, you can end up with an increased dosage of culture, or a rather bland experience. Here’s where a very common...

Re: Flight Attendants favorite foods

DrFumblefinger ·
I've spent a few flights at the front of the plane, and they clearly care to do a decent job with food up there. But if you're paying a thousand dollars extra for that seat (not counting upgrades), you're better of using that money to buy a bunch of great meals on your vacation in my humble opinion. I've had some pretty bad airline food at the back of the plane, PHeymont. On a recent flight from Amsterdam, the food was so bad my wife and I couldn't eat it (we keep some Protein bars at hand...

Re: Update: Loyalty Programs and Credit Cards

PortMoresby ·
A very useful bunch of information, PHeymont. I've been an AA/Citibank cardholder for over 8 years now and am a satisfied customer. I realize I might squeeze more points out if I open new accounts but I prefer to not have to think too much, be the tortoise and concentrate on piling up the points in 1 place by putting every possible purchase on the card, never spending more than I normally would. Also, when making large purchases, all other aspects being equal, I choose a company that accepts...

I do remember watching that show and seeing the setting shots of this house. I'm a little surprised that it's the second most photographed in the USA. I would have thought that might belong to Graceland (Elvis Presley's home).

Re: Brady Bunch House (Where Gumbo was #363)

Travel Rob ·
The Brady Bunch was a huge success after it went into syndication I remember it being on constantly in the 70's as a kid. And it's stayed popular through the years. The HGTV series on the renovation last year was the channels most successful to date bringing in more than 28 million total viewers.

Re: Road Trips with Kids: 5 Things that Will Help You Make Them Safe and Fun

PHeymont ·
Thanks! Not only a bunch of good ideas, but also revived memories of years ago, traveling with our 4 kids in an undersized Ford Fairmont station wagon. We joke that we had to stop every half hour to let the hostility out, but the truth is that an assortment of fruit, nuts, songs and especially games made it work. The games includes not just alphabet and license plate spotting, but free-range imagination games such as "I'm going abroad, and with me I am taking..."

Re: Oct. 20, 2016 The Callanish Stones, Scotland

PHeymont ·
It's always seemed to me that new faiths and cultures getting started absorb some of the symbols, and often ideas or practices, of predecessors, so it doesn't surprise me to find pre-Christian crosses and the like. I'm only surprised that no one has come along since and built a big church on the spot... Your point about the far north folk interested me; in Iceland, at an ethnographic exhibit, we learned that many of the early settlers, back around 950, came not directly from Scandinavia, but...

The best time in life is on the road

gordon ·
  1. Dissatisfaction in the world is a common thing. There are very few people who can obey you and make you do what you want. If you have to worry about it, no one person or one thing will satisfy you. If a person lives for a lifetime, he will ask for peace of mind, so why not live with himself. The heart is one inch wide and the road wide.   Second, life is not about obtaining, but about letting go. Whether it is prosperous or desolate, don't be too attached to the scenery you have seen.
