5 Awesome Airport Apps You Should Be Using

Awesome Airport Apps You Should Be Using I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This means part of my makeup is over analyzing and over thinking everything—including when I fly. When I fly everything needs to be in order and I MUST know everything. Airports give me anxiety so if I can know the makeup of the airport, what eateries are available, how long the lines are, etc; then I can function more calmly. Trying to make your way through airports…

6 Reasons You Should Ride On Amtrak

I’ve been using Amtrak as a means of travel for 17+ years. My first trip on Amtrak was from New York to North Carolina to visit the man who would become my future husband. Since then I’ve been hooked on using them because of the ease and non-hassle they provide that airlines don’t at times. And, if you don’t prefer flying then this is the perfect mode of travel. I’ve had my share of traveling in every class of seating they…

South Of The Border: The Best Roadside Pit Stop For Fun Instagram Photos & Cheesy Family Memories On i-95

One of my favorite memories was when I was 10 years old and drove with my family from my home in Long Island, New York to our family reunion in Charleston, South Carolina. It was the first time we took an 11 hour road trip of any kind—it was the first time I discovered the cheesy, but awesomeness that is South of The Border. No, I’m not referring to the real South of the Border that leads to Mexico. I…

Mommy Alone Getaway: A Relaxcation At The Alexandrian Autograph Collection Hotel In Alexandria Virginia

As I get older taking time for me is very important to me. I believe in the saying that “you can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself.” That said I am very much a hermit who suffers from severe anxiety— especially about going out into public places alone. I wasn’t always this way and want to break free of whatever this is. Additionally, I work from home which means I have very little interaction with…

How To Use Lyft Or Uber …For People Who Live In The Suburbs

I don’t live in an Uber or Lyft friendly area. However, I use ride sharing services all the time when I travel. Lately, I prefer Lyft over Uber as I think the drivers are treated better by Lyft —and therefore treat the passengers better. Shockingly, many of my suburban friends have never used either service. Some hesitate to try ride sharing services (even when traveling) because they live in areas where Lyft and Uber are not as accessible as in…

6 Things You MUST Know About Before Booking On Frontier Airlines

Recently, my best friend and I embarked on a week-long girls trip to Las Vegas in which we flew Frontier Airlines. With such a long trip we wanted to cut costs where we could and so I turned to Expedia to book our flights. I have always found that the fares for flights are significantly better on there. Of course, Expedia didn’t let me down, and I found a nonstop flight to Las Vegas on Frontier Airlines for $229 a person.  The cost of flying has increased so much and it normally costs more for non-stop flights, so I immediately booked the flight thinking I was good to go. After I book flights on Expedia, my normal routine is to head…

My Celebrity Cruise Lines Experience: 4 Days To Cozumel Mexico On Celebrity Reflections

In the past when booking a cruise I was looking for something with more of a party scene and that was affordable. At 36 years old my finances are better and I am seeking quality over quantity when I travel–within reason of course. Back in December I decided that I didn’t want a physical Christmas present, but more of an experience. Additionally, my spouse and I had never been on any major vacation together without the kids. With that in…
