My Five Favorite Destinations: The Brittany G Edition

My Five Favorite Destinations: The Brittany G Edition
When Lost Girl Brittany Gotschall wrote to share some of the places that she’d already visited by her early 20s, we had to tip our caps. When it comes to the sheer number of passport stamps and miles traveled, she’s almost got the three original LGs beat! Since she’s she’s quite...

The 10 Best Tours in America

The 10 Best Tours in America
While I’ve always been a fan of independent travel-exploring a place with little more than a map, a phrase-book and a sturdy pair of walking shoes to guide you-there’s still something to be said for the packaged tour. By putting yourself in the hands of someone with considerable local know-how,...

Earlier this summer, while friends were pulling out shorts and bikinis in preparation for Memorial Day barbecues, I was cramming tights and sweaters into a carry-on bag and preparing to go Down Under for the winter. Why head to Australia just as the chilly weather has arrived? I made the journey from...

Lost in Beijing…Continued

Lost in Beijing…Continued
I was lucky enough to have an expat to show me around (my friend Jen who worked with me at a magazine in New York before moving to Beijing for a year). Well, two expats actually. A man named Tak, a Singapore-born and Beijing-based entrepreneur, met up with us after finding me through this blog. From...

Lost in Beijing

Lost in Beijing
Beijing attracted worldwide attention as the home to the 2008 Olympics. Now that all the hype has died down, it’s the perfect time to visit. The city is a mix of modern (in part due to the government’s onslaught of construction to prepare for the influx of tourists during the global games)...

Three Reasons to Visit: Iowa

Three Reasons to Visit: Iowa
by Molly Fergus When a host on an Iowa talk show called “I love Dubuque” said that “Iowa is more than corn,” I laughed out loud, mostly because we had just driven through a neighborhood where backyards met up with cornfields that stretched on for miles like oceans. But then,...

Off-Season Travel: Niagara Falls

Off-Season Travel: Niagara Falls
by Molly Fergus After running from three hurricanes this summer, I have some (justifiably!) mixed feelings on off-season travel. Sure, the lines are shorter, crowds thinner and prices cheaper, but none of that matters if Hurricane Dolly cuts your beach getaway short. Nonetheless, my co-worker Amanda...

Our Favorite Underrated Cities

Our Favorite Underrated Cities
by Molly Fergus The downside to having a job that’s a giant road trip: We don’t get to pick where we go or how long we spend in our favorite spots; that’s our manager’s call. The upside? Sometimes we end up in cities and towns that we wouldn’t choose to visit but end up...
