It's hard to resist free wi-fi when you travel overseas so if you, like me, are going to give in and use it here's how to do it safely.
The temptation to use free, available wi-fi when you travel can be too much to resist. Here are steps you can take to be sure you're using that wifi safely.

I have to confess to being happily surprised by how interesting this place was!
The Ringling in Sarasota has a Clown Museum, an Italianate villa, an art museum and gardens. Learn why you may want to visit.

I has such a wonderful time in Patagonia and El Calafate played a major role in that.
El Calafate is an interesting and active destination in Patagonia. If you spend a couple days you can have a lot of fun and adventure.

I can't resist entering travel contests so if you're the same way here's an interesting one.
Together with Scuba Diving & Sport Diver, we'll award a lucky winner a $2,000 voucher that can be used for any Arenui cruise!

Just writing this post about all of the places I'm going to go this year has me ready to run out the door!
We put a lot of thought into our 2016 travel plans. The 6 trips we have scheduled combine nature, history, and culture from expert travel providers.

I very recently (as in still have jet lag from the trip) returned from Iceland. One of my goals was to learn to take photos of the Northern Lights. I learned how and found out that it would have been helpful to have known a little more ahead of time so I'm passing that info along!
Going to see the Northern Lights and coming home with beautiful photos is an exciting prospect but you need to know some basics before you go.

Personally I like the grumpy cow the best but these are all interesting and entertaining cultural celebrations in Portugal.
Lazarim celebrates carnival in traditional style with masks, costumes, public shaming and burning effigies followed by steaming stews and music.
