The Morning Shave

Avoid Award Phone Ticketing Fees. – Sometimes you just can’t get the itinerary you want when booking online.  And airlines want to charge you for everything if you want to actually talk to someone.  That’s why I love tips like these!

Bahamas Swimming Pigs Were Given Alcohol. – Swimming with the pigs is totally on my bucket list.  This totally pisses me off.  In one of the saddest (and dumbest) pieces of news today.  Come on people, you gotta be smarter than this?!?!


Please don’t harm these cute little guys.


I miss my grandma. (yes it’s travel-related). – A reminder to put family first, above all else.  And when you’re together, create memories to last a lifetime because your loved ones won’t always be around.

The One Trick To Prevent Your Bag From Being Checked. – Risky, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.  I avoid checking my bag whenever possible… even when traveling with two young children.  I just hate the fees that some airlines charge and the wasted time waiting at baggage claim.

Best Job In The World? A Company Is Offering Two People The Chance To Travel Europe For 6 Months, All Expenses Paid. – If I didn’t have a stable job and kids, this would be a dream assignment.
