What’s your favorite observation deck?

U.K. requiring self-isolation period upon arrival. – I traveled to London in August, shortly after they re-opened to U.S. travelers. It was a hassle and expensive for testing with a required Day-2 test and departure test. New regulations are even stricter now with the Omicron variant. Before I was able to walk around while waiting for results, but now you must self-isolate until your results come back negative.

Allianz survey: Top 3 international holiday destinations are all in Mexico. – If you’re planning on traveling internationally during the holidays, there’s a good chance that Mexico is on your list. We just came back from the new Hilton Cancun All-Inclusive (review coming shortly) and are visiting the InterContinental Presidente Cozumel later this month. Are you planning on traveling to Mexico this winter?

A Reader Suggestion That Changed the Way I Travel. – I never thought about this, but it does make sense. Jeans offer more protection and wearing them instead of packing them saves space in your suitcase.
