APeople always ask my must-packs—what's one thing you never travel without?

 Just my phone.  If I don't have that with me, I'm in trouble. See More

QWhich airline would you choose for a long coach flight?

Let's say you were going to fly to the other side of the world and it would be in coach.  Which airline would you choose?  Forget if the airline actually flies there or not.  (If you want to pretend you could fly JetBlue to India, then go for it.)   Which would... See More

AYou can only travel to one place the rest of your life. Where would it be?

Maui​ - is that boring?  Maybe, but there's no place on Earth I've found more relaxing.  So if I had to pick only one place to go to over and over again, that'd be it. See More

ATurkey: Agean Airlines Baggage Policy, Tips?

You do get a free carry-on, but how big actually depends on what aircraft you're flying.  If you are on one of their Dash-8 prop aircraft (which do operate Athens to Santorini on a couple flights), then you can carry on board the plane 1 piece of hand baggage, weighing... See More

ABest option to purchase airplane tickets for a long-time trip?

AMaui: Best spots for hiking in Maui?

My favorite hike ever was in the crater of @Haleakala. But the standard in and out hikes aren't as great as what we did camping in the crater for two nights and coming out the Kaupo Gap. See More

QIndianapolis: Your Favorite Holiday Events in Indianapolis

I spend the holidays with my in-laws outside Indianapolis every year (in Fishers).  We don't usually do much, so it got me thinking that there might be some good things we're missing around town during the holidays.  What's your favorite thing to do during... See More

AEurope: National airlines in Europe?

For travel within Europe, the budget carriers are usually the way to go.  Ryanair, easyJet, and Vueling are good options.  But it really depends where you want to go specifically. See More

ABooking Flights: One-way or Roundtrip?

Unfortunately no.  Most airlines stopped allowing open returns.  Just look for fares with low changes fees on them.  Many airlines allow you to change the return for just the change fee as long as the original class of service is available.  So fly during off peak times... See More
