The way to rank high in Google to get links. That's it. You need links. Links with the text you want to rank high for. There are over 600 members on TBEX. That's a lot of link potential as some people might even have multiple sites. Let's work together and swap links so we can help each other out. Since none of it is paid, it's all up and up with google. I mean who doesn't swap blogroll links? right? right.
If you need help with links, I have 10 travel… Continue

Every one gets Irish for a day each year in mid March for to celebrate St. Patty's day with a round of Guiness. Thousands gather in cities like Chicago and New York for massive parades replete with bagpipers shamrocking out and revelers painted green.
Meanwhile in Palmerton, PA at Blue Mountain they have a bit different tradition: the annual pond skim and cardboard box derby.
Every year for this much anticipated event, skiers and riders line up to speed down the hill and… Continue

Viva Las Vegas! With its flashy casinos, palatial hotels, shotgun weddings and all-you-can-eat buffets, Vegas is the real 'Sin City' - even the city's tourist board proudly gives you a get-out clause... 'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas'!…

I love your site! I actually got signed on with an airline and waiting for my training date. My first concern is the job security and wondered what you think about the future in the airline industry as a flight attendant. I have waited for my son to grow up and now he has, my husband was laid off last year and still hasn't found work.
I'm in retail and have a pretty decent job, but I just want to fly. I'm so burned out on retail. I finally have a chance… Continue

Sure, those first few months were horrendous, the witching hours, the incessant crying, projectile...err, hang on, what am I writing about?
Ah yes... What would I be prepared to live with to ensure that I can enjoy the now daily ritual that is Twittering? Tweeting to my tweeps. Gettin' twitty. Building connections, partnerships, friendships and all that stuff !
It must survive !
Sure, Twitter is not short of VC funding, nor conjecture on how… Continue

According to my mother, it was time to replace my favorite pair of navy blue Me, Too flight attendant shoes. She made it very clear the last time I saw her in New York when she said, "You're not going to walk through the terminal in those
, are you?" staring at my feet.
"Why?" I said, quickly kicking them off and running to the closet for my back up pair, a boring pair of black Nine West heels that look more like loafers than heels. I… Continue

The Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal is celebrating the 40th anniversary of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s infamous “Bed-In”, which was the couple’s way of protesting the Vietnam War.
The original plan was for the peaceful duo to lodge in New York, but due to a 1968 cannabis conviction the Beatles singer was not allowed in the United States.
Therefore the two hopped a plane and landed in Canada on May 26, 1969 for a… Continue

Enquiring minds want to know.
The Savvy Navigator – gay travel guy extraordinaire – has been barraged with requests from friends to share the story of how and why he got invited to the Playboy Mansion West this month. In a nutshell, he could not believe his good luck, and was elated that this lifelong dream was fulfilled. Imagine, a guy who spends his life jetting around the world organizing and leading gay tours, gets to spend the evening… Continue

Checking your watch for the umpteenth time, you sigh, because you're on the airplane waiting in line to use the bathroom and you've been waiting in line for a very long time. What's strange is you're next to go and have been for some time now. What the heck is going on in there?
You probably don't want to know. What you do know is the passenger who went in there ten minutes ago can't be doing that
, at least not with another person,… Continue

With over 40 ferias (street fairs, flea markets) in Buenos Aires, how do you decide where to focus your time? While I have not visited all of them, I have done extensive research and enlisted the help of my Buenos Aires correspondents (aka my cousins Isa, Pilar and Carol) to point out the best ferias. Aside from this post, check out my Quick Guide

We all know the feeling of annoyance/regret/unfocused rage when you know you have something at home that would really help you out but you don’t have in the here and now. If this can happen on a two week beach holiday, imagine what it is like for a long term traveller. Never have that feeling again with our 10 back pack essentials you might not think to bring!…

Busy working on a post about fear (on and off the airplane)

Just back from our second fabulous stay at Club Med Punta Cana. Already wishing that everything at home was as close as the beach there and as beautiful... I would go back tomorrow if I could!!!

I never realized just how important a pair of tennis shoes (or running shoes as I use the terms interchangeably) are to good travel! Back story: I'm a fan of boots and have worn them almost exclusively for the last 15 years or so. Sometimes I'd wear flip flops or sandals but not that often. I just never had a need for a pair of running… Continue

Out of nowhere you feel it - fear. You're not sure why you feel it, and because it doesn't make sense, at least not yet, you choose to ignore it. Perhaps you just don't want to be rude or look stupid in an effort to avoid whatever it is you can't quite grasp that is scaring you. Well I'm here to tell you there could be a very good reason you're afraid, and it doesn't always have to make sense and it's okay to look stupid or act rude, even if you are a… Continue
