El Salvador Series: Four-Hour Hike To and From Santa Ana Volcano

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I told them, I swear I did. My friends downplay how adventurous I tend to be. I warned them that this wouldn’t be one of those cute girl trips where we sit by the beach or pool and do nothing but drink and take selfies. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But, you can do that, anywhere.

How To: Travel as a Picky Eater with a Selectively Diverse Palate

Conversing with an acquaintance a short time ago brought up the concept of being a picky eater while possessing a diverse palate. Until then, I never considered it. While I’m welcoming to trying nearly anything to familiarize myself with different customs, I’ve perpetually deemed myself a fussy eater rejecting the thought of expanding my limits at times. I’m here to inform you that both are unquestionably possible simultaneously.

25 by 25: Attempting to Hit Travel Goals During My Second Quarantine Birthday

25 by 25. Such a nice ring to it. For as long as I can recall, I anticipated visiting 25 countries before 25 years old. The fact that I’m turning 25 later this month is absurd. I turned 24 in total lockdown, and it is ridiculous that a year has passed since. I don’t feel a day older than 23. I planned to surpass this goal in 2020. Everything was arranged, and I would’ve been closer to touring 30 countries by 25. However, that wasn’t God’s plan. I don’t understand the reasoning, but I will not question it.

Ryanair Vs. Spirit Airlines: Global Battle of the Affordable Airlines

What is a budget airline?

Before we battle the most prominent and flourishing budget airlines of North America and Europe, let us determine what that incorporates. Simply stated, affordable airlines cut expenses by not contributing to particular amenities. Sequentially, the consumer can purchase tickets for a bargain in comparison to other airlines. As a result of cut costs, the interior of the aircraft is unquestionably austere. Legroom is restricted, seats are not satisfactory, and supplementary fees apply for carry-on’s required to be stored overhead. Plus, additional charges are calculated that most airlines include in airfare. For instance, refreshments and snacks typically included in airfare are not incorporated in low-cost carrier tickets. Ensure that you are checked in with your boarding pass printed before arriving at the airport. If not, this will result in an added fee. To avoid unexpected payments, get familiar with the websites and identify what charges to steer clear of. While it demands time and attention, low-cost carriers potentially save you hundreds of dollars if executed correctly.

Solo Travel Diaries: An Overtly Suggestive and Bold Taxi Driver in Cyprus

I came across his business card recently. It felt as if I nearly allowed his memory to escape me. Inadvertently or on purpose, I’m not quite sure. One thing for certain, an impression was left. I almost allowed the way he treated me to dictate if I would ever travel solo again. I assumed he would leave a nasty stain on the concept of me wandering this world alone. He did not. I couldn’t permit that.
