Took too many photos on your vacation?

If you're anything like me, you're constantly taking pictures throughout your travels.  The problem with this is, in a time where we no longer use film and each picture can easily be deleted, we end up with hundreds of photos at the end of the trip.  I came back from a three week trip, and literally had hundreds of photos to sift through on my computer.  I really wanted a simple and quick way to have my pictures printed and displayed nicely in my home.  Here are my suggestions for you.

Sunshine, Salt Water, Winding Roads, and Limoncello

The highlight of my entire trip in Europe was my travels in Sorrento, the Isle of Capri, and the beautiful Amalfi Coast! I would love to live there. Everything about it was amazing - the food, the atmosphere, the scenery, and the beaches.

My Busabout Adventure

For the month of August I traveled around Europe with the amazing Busabout!  We got ourselves a Flexi Trip pass which allowed us to go wherever we wanted on the bus network, whenever we wanted.  If you're not familiar with Busabout, it is a hop-on, hop-off network of busses that travel to most of the major tourist cities, as well as the most beautiful smaller tourist spots.  Depending on the type of pass you purchase, there are many types of adventures to be had!

Six Awesome Hostels in Europe

Last week I returned from my month-long European adventure. We wanted to save as much money as possible on this trip, especially on accommodations, so we chose to stay in hostels. While many people are weary about hostels and have heard horror stories, there definitely are some really great hostels to be found. Check out the rest of this post for some of my hostel recommendations in Italy, France, Switzerland, and Germany.

Top things to do for free in Europe

In about two months from now I'm heading to Europe to do some backpacking through Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands.

Having just finished college recently, this trip must fit in a fairly small budget.  I want to experience as much of the culture and history in each city as possible, but not come home completely broke. This seems to be the case for most students and youth that come into my office wanting to travel through Europe.  Having researched each of the cities I plan to visit, I have come up with the top things to do for free.

Cruise Line Comparison: For the Budget Traveller

Thinking of cruising the Caribbean, but you're on a budget?  At the agency where I work, I have lots of people asking me which cruise line is the most affordable, and what the big difference is between each line.  I find that people may even write-off cruising, simply because they are overwhelmed by the many cruise lines to choose from, or because they're under the impression that cruising is not within their budget.  However, there are many cruise lines that are affordable and ideal for young travellers.  Even though these doubts still exist, more and more people are choosing a cruise over a typical all-inclusive resort vacation, and for a good reason.
