The Seychelles has a special place in my heart–I went there on my honeymoon in 2005, visiting Mahé, Praslin, and Desroches islands. Fabulous destination, especially if you’re a scuba diver, like me. Biggest, densest schools of fish I’ve seen anywhere, and I’ve gone diving all over the world. Tons of octopus too, which is pretty cool–I saw 8 in one dive alone. Continue reading
HAPPY HUMP DAY EVERYONE! Great news from the travel industry. Remember when we talked about Expedia buying out Travelocity, effectively reducing the entire US online travel industry to three companies? (And why that was such a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea?) In case you heard that and were like, “Why, three companies? For all of the good ol’ US of A? That’s simply too many!”, then YOU’RE IN LUCK! Because… (drum roll please…) Continue reading
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
In case you hadn’t heard, online travel giant Expedia just bought Travelocity for a supposed $280 million. (Or, for those of us who glaze over at numbers larger than their monthly rent: that’s 2,800,000 Benjamin Franklins. Or, like, 280 healthy Orca whales, since they apparently average about about a million a pop. But I digress.)Continue reading

Monocle, an esteemed London-based magazine covering culture, global affairs, business, and design, has given Portland, Oregon a significant nod to its “livability” (which is awkward considering the fact that former Nike CIO and London native Anthony Watson left the company because Portland was “too boring.” Oops). According to KGW, Monocle’s annual Quality of Life Survey ranked 25 cities based on data from crime rates, healthcare, state-funded education, and business climate, along with a liveability assessment that considers green space, culture, sunshine, and local businesses. Portland placed 23rd (out of 25), right behind Lisbon, Portugal. Which doesn’t seem so impressive, except that it’s the only city in the US to make the list. Continue reading
