India is the most chaotic place I have ever visited. My mouth was wide open in shock for the first few hours I was in the country because everything was just so different and amazing. I witnessed 6 lanes of traffic in a 4 lane road, water buffalo roaming the streets, pigs rummaging through the trash, and locals herding goats down the road.
Las Vegas is full of glitz, glamor, high rollers, and sweaty tourists. The whole city is a giant gambling empire, but what if you’re not a big gambler? Or if lady luck has left you high and dry with an empty wallet?
Don’t fear, there are plenty of things to do in Sin City for free. You can stay busy for a week and not gamble at all.

Almost all persons who go traveling – except some financial giants – consider the budget initially before finally deciding which place they should choose and which not. [Read more…]
Each cruise line has something for everyone, but there are many reasons to sail with Royal Caribbean. My last cruise was a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise that visited Belize, Honduras and Mexico, and it was truly one of my most enjoyable vacations ever. The trip was completely worry and stress free, and I found it easy to relax and enjoy every moment. As I’m sure you’ve seen on my About Me page, I’ve been to quite a few places, and sadly it’s getting a little more difficult with every trip to find brand new experiences. On this one trip I had multiple new and amazing experiences, and that’s really saying something for Royal Caribbean. Below are 10 reasons I would sail with them for my next cruise.
Around the year 0, Rome was no longer considered a city. It was considered the whole civilized world and everyone else was a barbarian. They no longer believe this, thank goodness, but there are so many well preserved structures from that time. Each one tells an amazing story about the past, and it’s fun to discover them. There’s enough to see and do in Rome for a tourist to keep busy for at least a week, but if you’re like me and only have a limited amount of vacation days, this 4 day itinerary hits the highlights. It’s packed full and has a strenuous pace, so you might need a vacation from your vacation if you follow it entirely, or you can shave off a few sights to have a more relaxing trip.
Alaska is an amazing place to visit and offers so many wonderful and adventurous experiences. It’s a Bucket List vacation spot for many people, and for good reason too. Natural beauty is abundant and adventure lies around every corner. However, goods and services tend to be more expensive than in the continental United States because much of these items must be delivered via ship or plane. Luckily, there are so many free activities to partake in that a visit to the 49th state doesn’t have to break the bank.

Ohio’s Amish country is a great place to experience something truly unique. Holmes County, Ohio holds the largest Amish community in the world, and it makes for a memorable vacation.
The Amish people are of Swiss and German descent. They immigrated to Pennsylvania in the early 18th century to avoid persecution for their religious beliefs. They speak a dialect called Pennsylvania Dutch, which is most similar to German, but they also speak English as well. Known for their plain clothes and a way of life that condemns modern conveniences such as cars and electricity, they lead humble, simplistic lifestyles that keep religion and family as their main focus. Horse and buggy is their main mode of transportation, but they also walk and ride bicycles. Their food is all homemade, and traditional foods include fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, pickled garden vegetables, fresh bread, cold salads, and plenty of cookies and pies.
They don’t call it the city of lights for nothing. It’s a large, bustling metropolis, where traffic and scammers abound, but if you can get past these obstacles, Paris can be truly magical. There is more jaw-dropping art than you can see in a week of constant viewing, the towering churches are out of this world beautiful, and the food and wine is heavenly. The feelings experienced while in this city made for lovers will stick with you long after you’re gone. In fact, after some time away, you might find that the bad experiences fade away, and the good memories will have you yearning to return.
Florence, Italy is the birthplace of the Renaissance, and in the pedestrian-only city center it’s easy to imagine yourself back in the 1500’s. There are no modern buildings, and the narrow, cobblestone streets twist through the city to provide a feeling of true time travel. The major sights are close together and can be experienced in just 2-3 days if you’re willing to travel at a decent pace. Shave off a couple of lesser known sights if you are short on time or want a more relaxing pace for your trip. Even two days will give you a good feel for this charming city.
