Ghosts and goblins might be closer than you think...like on your street! New York City has quite the haunted past and many iconic landmarks are still home to some of their former patrons. Guest host Justin Weiler, Tripfilms' filmmaker of the year recipient, and Kelley Ferro scour Manhattan's streets for spooky haunted sites, and few suggestions of where to go to get your scare on this Halloween.

If you're in Washington DC or the surrounding area, I recommend taking a look into an upcoming 2-day class on travel writing taught by the tough-but-fair editors at WorldHum. I wanted to post about it simply because I think they're great and I appreciate their strong online presence and terrific content that you won't see anywhere else.

OoOoOoo…spooky season is upon us. The next full moon will be on the night of November 2nd (meaning Halloween will be very bright as well!) There’s something about traveling that gets me outside, yearning to soak up every bit of the experience, and that usually means I see many more sunrises and sunsets, and make much more time to gaze at the night sky. Here are 7 intriguing places to… Continue

(From my previous trip to Egypt in May 2009)
We have been in Cairo for three days now. I am sitting in an internet cafe called "interland" in Central Cairo, taking care of a few things before we head back to grab our bags and then take a taxi (supposedly our new friend Wagghie is picking us up from the hotel) to the Giza train station. There we will board our 12 or 13 hour overnight sleeper train to Aswan.
The last couple of days… Continue

I love to read. I have loved reading since I was little and had to go to my mom's bookstore after school and wait for her to finish working. There was a big, old ceramic heater that spanned the entire front window of this bookstore and I used to sit there and read my little heart out until Mom was ready to close up shop for the night. I have not been the same since. Boyfriends over the years have elected to get me books or gift certificates to buy them instead of some ole' stand-by flowers.… Continue

The impetus for this post came from an off hand comment made by Jen Leo before one of our podcasts a few weeks ago. I mentioned that I was going to a trip sponsored by Princess Cruise Lines in November. Jen is an experienced travel writer who has worked in the publishing industry and currently works for the LA Times. She commented that I can’t take those trips if I want to write for the New York Times or the LA Times, because they don’t allow writers to take comped tours. What struck me about… Continue

When most travelers confessed to me, one topic seemed to come up quite a bit and that was “I have never been to…”. Below are some places that these vagabonds have yet to mark off on their “to see” list.

First up in the confession booth is Gabe Saglie
, Senior Editor and “Travel Guru” at Travelzoo.com
, who revealed to me that, “When it comes to hotels, I always check-out with 2 things: amenities and stationary. Amenities are something hotels identify with, and even advertise, especially the upscale hotels. So this started years ago, when my traveling really began to pick up and I found myself forgetting where I’d stayed. Those… Continue

It’s that time of year, people! Hopefully you’ve already figured out what you’re going to be for Halloween. It is right around the corner, ya know.
I’m the type of person who usually waits until the last second to pull something together, which is why I almost always end up feeling insecure about my costume, a crap costume, which only leads to a miserable night out – that is if I even go out! It all depends on just how crappy the crap… Continue
