1. Airline Ticket Cautionary Tale
It seemed like a simple request, but it turned out to be one with as many answers as there were American Airlines service people handling our calls.
2. The Best of Aruba
Aruba is a good choice for a summer visit to the Caribbean. Like Bonaire and Curaçao, Aruba is situated below the “hurricane belt” in the Southern Caribbean. As a result, big storms remain unlikely, although possible. Here’s a guide to some of the best of Aruba.
3. Fredericksburg, VA, More than the Civil War
Two reasons to visit Fredericksburg, VA, besides its historic battlefields: award-winning bourbon from the A. Smith Bowman Distillery plus dinner and an overnight at the historic Kenmore Inn. Fredericksburg, VA, is 60 miles south of Washington, D.C.
4. Washington, D.C, Cool Fun in Summer
There are many ways to have summer fun in Washington, D.C. Paddle the Potomac River, run through a spray fountain in Georgetown, soak in a splash pool and then cheer the Nationals during a baseball game. Then head for an air-conditioned, indoor “beach” of balls at the National Building Museum.
5. Tips on How to Fly with your Pet
Should you take your dog or cat on an airplane? If your pet can’t be in the cabin with you, then don’t put him on the plane. That’s the advice of the Humane Society of the United States, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and many other pet organizations.
6. Using Frequent Flyer Tickets
Once in a lifetime trips,often begin with a plane ticket. Because cashing in frequent flyer miles delivers dream destinations almost for free (you pay taxes and award fees), we booked tickets--or tried to- from D.C. to Africa. Here’s what we learned.
7. Share a meal when traveling?
MealSharing.com, a new website service, connects travelers with locals who, in their own homes, cook meals for visitors, often for a small fee to cover the cost of the food. Does this interest you? Would you do this?
8. Inspiring Adventure Quotes
There are many quotes about adventure and adventure living, crazy and interesting, thought provoking and inspiring; here are some of my all-time favorites.
9. Shopping in Shanghai and Beijing, China
For those who consider shopping a trip essential, China is magic. The vendors at Shanghai’s and Beijing’s markets hawk everything—tea pots, Buddhas, pearl necklaces, scarves, jade bracelets, cheap watches, "designer bags," silk shawls and more. But you need to know where to look and how to shop.
10. Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, VA
On Assateague Island the breezes bring the sounds of snow geese honking and the neighs of wild ponies. Misty, the pony from Marguerite Henry's book helped publicize Chincoteague, but the area also has sunlit beaches, wetlands and in fall thousands of migrating waterfowl.
