Behind the Scenes (again) with TravelingSpoon

Once again on a trip to Malaysia I had the opportunity to serve as an ambassador for TravelingSpoon, testing out a new food experience for them in Kuala Lumpur. I was thrilled to help out this awesome company by offering up my stomach and camera to make sure the meal was up to their high standards.

Overnight in an Onsen: How to maximize a 9 hour layover in Tokyo

Staying overnight at an Onsen was a fabulous use of my brief Tokyo layover, but I had a very hard time finding this information online. So I’m sharing the details in case others in the same situation want to consider this option. The backstory: I booked a crazy cheap ticket to Malaysia and included in it what […]

Dental Tourism: Saving Money for more Traveling

TL;DR: Americans can save lots of money getting dental work done in Spain. Or save even more going to other countries. For many years I associated medical tourism with women getting plastic surgery. This is probably because I first heard about this phenomenon in Costa Rica where they have resorts devoted to just this sort of […]

Bowls, Cups and Other Local Learnings from a Spain Homestay

Staying with locals provides an entirely different experience from what I see as a tourist. While I’m out on my own I do basically the same things I would do in any city, namely walk around a ton and sample lots of local food and drink. But I learned some interesting things that I didn’t anticipate after 3 […]

GoCambio Exchange Review: Three Weeks in Madrid

My three week GoCambio exchange in Madrid is over and it’s time to sum up the experience, which was overall fabulous. I enjoyed an immersive taste of Spanish life while making new friends and spending very little money. In fact I’ve been raving to my friends about this experience and several of them have already […]

Free is better than cheap: Lisbon home exchange success

I booked an Airbnb stay in Lisbon for my two day quick exploration of that city. It was for a spare room in someone’s apartment. The price was only $28 per night for a location in the heart of the city, and with a host who had tons if fabulous reviews. It even included breakfast. I was pretty […]

Running Drugs to Colombia

I still can’t think of the Colombian city Medellín without automatically filling in the words “drug cartels” as in “Medellín drug cartels.” I think this speaks to the power of the American media in the 80s and 90s during the Reagan-initiated “war on drugs” since I know very little about that country otherwise. Ironically, here I am […]

Exploring the Sharing Economy for Travel in Colombia

In anticipation of my upcoming trip to Colombia (super cheap airfare deals from both American Air and Delta) I came up with some sharing economy travel services that seem to have traction in that country. I’ll be trying out some of these and reporting back after the trip.

Ridesharing in Denmark

I wrote about all the ridesharing services in Scandinavia in anticipation of my trip to Sweden and Denmark. It turns out the public transit in Sweden is so easy and efficient that I was never inspired to try out ridesharing in that country. Also I loved Stockholm and was quite happy to stay in the city for […]
