24 Hours in Milan: How to Spend One Day in Italy’s Fashion Capital

How to Spend One Day in Milan Milan is a big city… A huge city, actually. It’s roughly the size of Paris, France, or Dallas, Texas. But the tourist sights are located relatively close together, so if you only have one day in Milan, you can easily hit the high points. Although, it will leave…

5 Times Traveling Stretched Me

One of the things I love most about traveling is that it forces you out of your comfort zone. The language, the food, the architecture, everything around you is unfamiliar and foreign.

How the EgyptAir Crash will affect Tourism

It has happened again… Another plane crash, and all signs are pointing to terrorism. EgyptAir was the unfortunate target this time. Sixty-six innocent victims, including three children, were senselessly killed. I hate that this happened yet again. My heart breaks for those families, and especially for those babies who were robbed of the chance to…

My Perfect Match

A Quick Solution to America’s TSA Shortage

Too many travelers… Not enough TSA agents. Airports across the US are seeing extremely long lines at TSA checkpoints and wait times that we haven’t seen since the days following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Some airports, like Denver International, are advising airline passengers to arrive THREE HOURS early to ensure they make their flight. Denver…
