Washington state is often eclipsed by the city of Seattle, but there’s more to explore. The low-key vibe of the Pacific Northwest encompasses the whole coast. You just have to decide whether to stay in the city, visit one of the islands, or head out into the wilderness.

Washington state’s tourism industry revolves around the water. The ferry boats run between the mainland an...

You may have never heard of SeaTac before, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that it isn’t somewhere you should visit.

Just like how each and every destination differs from the other, each airport will also always be different from another. The same as wandering through a new city, having to navigate through a new airport could be quite a challenge. You would probably feel hungry and would look for your favorite food house such as Ivar’s chowder or SeaTac for mac cheese but don’t have an idea where to find it. Or you would probably look for a yoga sports house like the SFO’s over at Terminal 2 while waiting fo...
One of the most common New Year’s resolutions people make is to travel more. It’s right up there with eating better and going to the gym more.
And, like so many other resolutions, this one starts with the best of intentions and motivations but often fails.

On my first big non-tour trip, I got scammed twice on the same day. My friend Scott and I had just arrived in Thailand. We were in Bangkok trying to find a boat cruise to take us up and down the Chao Phraya River. A taxi driver suggested this one company; we went there, and found out that an hour-long tour was only $30 USD. Not even thinking about whether that was a deal or not, we agreed. To us — still thinking about prices back home — that offer seemed like a fair price. It was only as the boa...
As much as I love hostels and other forms of cheap accommodation, there is something nice about the luxuriousness of a hotel: the clean room, comfy bed, desk, iron, strong shower, and bottled soap for the taking (errr…I mean borrowing). They are quiet, relaxing, and a respite from the world.
But luxury comes at a price. Hotels certainly aren’t cheap, and I hate spending money on a room I am only going to be in for a few hours. After all, it’s just a place to sleep (and take soap). It’s why I ...
