Cozumel, Mexico is a beautiful destination that caters to many different types of travelers during all times of year. Having had the opportunity to visit Cozumel twice in the last few months (both times on a cruise), I’ve been able to scope out some of the best beaches and attractions on the island. Since I was only on the island for one day each time, I wanted to make the most of my time there and fully immerse myself in the local culture as much as possible during my short stays. That’s why I decided to rent a scooter to…

Long gone are the days when cruises were just for old people and families seeking time away together. Nowadays, with over 20 million people taking cruises annually, the cruise industry has become a trend and attraction for the younger population as well. And who can blame them? Cruises appeal to the masses because there is something for everyone. Whether you’re a pool bum or a casino junkie or a concertgoer, you will be able to find something right up your alley on a cruise. Having gone on two cruises in the last two months, I’ve had plenty of time to analyze…

If you asked me where the oldest city in America was two months ago, I would’ve guessed somewhere in New England. To my surprise, the oldest city in the U.S. is actually a historic beach town in Northeast Florida called St. Augustine. Once you arrive in St. Augustine, its rich history shines through as you start to feel a mixture of different cultures coursing through the town. It is part Spanish, part Caribbean, and part lazy beach town. The combination of different influences in St. Augustine makes it impossible to describe the city in one word – and also makes…

Going on a road trip is a great opportunity for adventure and exploration. You can set your own schedule and take detours as you please. See something that catches your eye? It’s easy to go off course and dedicate a day to visiting new, unexpected places. After all, there’s only so much research you can do. The best way to experience a country is to visit it, and once you’re there, a car gives you the flexibility to create a trip that’s perfect for you.

Having lived in Toronto from 2010-2015 and visiting frequently since, I have seen its increase in popularity as one of the hottest up and coming cities in North America for tourists, and especially young people, to visit and even to relocate. As the city has increased in popularity, its food and drink scene has also spiked, with plenty of new restaurants and bars opening in the last few years to accommodate the increase in travelers. If you’re one of the many people visiting Toronto for the first time, you will not want to miss trying out the restaurants and bars listed below.

If you read my post from last month on how to travel 120 days each year with a full time job, you know that the best way to travel more with a full time job is to take advantage of your weekends. With that said, there are certain cities that are more ideal for weekend trips than others. Having traveled to most of the U.S. states and most major cities in the U.S., I took a minute to think about what is most important to me in a weekend destination and compiled the list below of the 10 best weekend…

A couple of weekends ago, I had the fortune of arriving in San Francisco on the first day of nice weather the city’s seen since 2017 started. I had visited San Francisco once with my family back when I was in high school, but it’s never the same visiting a city as an adult with adult friends rather than parents. One thing I always note in the back of my mind when I travel to a new city is whether the touristy sights are indeed just that – touristy sights – and nothing more. As much as I hate feeling like I’m succumbing to tourist…

This is perhaps one of our most highly requested posts yet. I had mentioned in an earlier post that I would frequently travel to New York City (NYC) from Boston with $20 USD or less, including all transportation, accommodation, and food, and received an influx of messages asking how it is possible to spend so little money in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Thus, I’ve put together this step by step guide to show you how I traveled to NYC for a weekend with $20 USD, and how you can do it, too.
A huge component of travelling…
