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. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. Hard Rock Hotel, Dominican Republic
The recently opened Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Punta Cana, ushers in a new era for the music themed chain. The 1700 room property in the Dominican Republic is the Hard Rock's first all-inclusive. The beachfront behemoth, comes with a conference center, a casino and sometimes free concerts.
8. Ecuador’s Andes Mountains
we came to explore Ecuador’s Andes. Instead of the Galapagos' frigate birds, tortoises and blue-footed boobies, we discoverd a different, but equally alluring landscape of mountains, towering volcanoes and glassy lakes.
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. 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?
