We recently got back from filming an episode in Taos, NM which will come out very soon. We were there to check out the Taos Summer of Love 2009, and it was quite a lot of fun.
The tourism office brought us down so we could check out everything Taos had to offer. I've gotta say, I was surprised at just how much there was to do in the area. Taos turned out to… Continue

I have doubled the travel quotes section on the site. When I compiled the list a few months ago, I did not realize it would be so popular with readers. I personally love travel quotes and felt that it needed its own spot on my site. Glad you all enjoy it so much. So check out
the updated list and if you feel the need to add one of your own, simply leave a comment below.

An American Airlines pilot was busted at London’s Heathrow airport Wednesday when he failed a breathalyzer. Great just what we need now, pilots more trashed then the gentleman sitting next to me when I fly.
American stated that the pilot was given the test Wednesday after airport security staff alerted police. The pilot’s name is currently being kept private, but it has been released that he was suppose to fly 204 passengers from… Continue

Yeah, try pronouncing that name! This popular lake, located in Webster, Massachusetts, has been bugging locals for years. Seems that even the residents have a hard time pronouncing the 13-syllable lake’s name properly.
Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg is the longest place name in the United States and 6th longest in the world. The 49-letter name (the picture above abbreviates the name to just a measly 45-letters)… Continue

Broadway has undergone quite a change in the last 48 hours. If you are from the New York area, then you might have already heard the news. But for people that may be visiting the city that never sleeps, things might look a little different next time you stroll down the iconic thoroughfare.
Mayor Mike Bloomberg ordered that the streets in Times Square and Herald Square be shut down to automobiles and open to foot traffic. Broadway will now… Continue

I am a travel junkie.
Seriously, I am.
I probably look at travel news, stories, deals and journals more than anything else during my weekly activities. It is an addiction and something that I may need to eventually get help for (is there a Traveler’s Anonymous?). In any event, while my travel bug is still active, let me say that one of the things that makes me want to log onto Kayak or TravelZoo and book my next trip comes… Continue

My friend Cady gave birth to a baby boy recently - okay fine, so it wasn't really all that recently, considering the kid is like two months old and seventeen pounds already! Which is why I need to go see her - NOW!
Because Cady lives in Florida and I live in Los Angeles, we don't get to see each other very often. Actually, we get together about once every two years, which is pretty much never, but we do leave each other these phone messages that are so long they drive my husband… Continue

Lake Toba, or Danau Toba in Indonesian, is the largest year-round lake in Southeast Asia. Although it is smaller in size than the Tonle Sap of Cambodia, unlike the Tonle Sap, Lake Toba is pretty consistent in its size. Also, being a volcanic lake, Lake Toba is much, much deeper than Tonle Sap. Hence, it holds much more water than Tonle Sap, 240 km3 vs about for Tonle Sap.
Scenic view of Lake Toba. Samosir Island is on the top left.

Recently on Twitter.com Times Travel asked me who I thought the worst type of passenger was. I wrote, "a business class passenger who does not get an upgrade and ends up in coach."
But not all business class passengers who end up in coach are bad. In fact, business class passengers are actually my favorite passengers. They know the drill. They know exactly what to expect. So there's no "on my last flight..." or "what do you mean there… Continue
