Moving to Europe

Thu, 22 May 2008 16:09:02 +0000

Hi all,

I'll be moving to France in July, and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice, funny stories, etc. to share?

Thanks!

Travel Ideas

Thu, 06 Mar 2008 22:15:24 +0000

I am a young college student trying to study how mothers go about planning vacations and where they go. I would be very interested if any of you mothers would take this survey. It won't take long at all and is perfectly safe for your computer. I would be so grateful!

Also, feel free to respond to this post and let me know some of your favorite vacations. It will help with my future planning.

Thanks!




I Love Vancouver

Mon, 11 Feb 2008 05:04:42 +0000

I love Vancouver. And apparently, I'm not the only one - not by a long shot. The Economic Intelligence Unit rated Vancouver, British Columbia as the most livable city in the world. Because some of the factors that figure into livability are quality and availability of good and services, low crime, and access to arts and culture, Vancouver is also a top vacation city. Sure, it's cloudier and rainier than some may like, but hey - nowhere's perfect, right?

Now, many people visit Vancouver en route to Whistler Blackcomb for skiing. No harm there! If it's just an easy overnight you seek, I recommend staying at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel. It's the best airport hotel I've ever been in (for both incredible convenience and the luxury standards of the Fairmont brand), and an experience you won't soon forget. But, if you're planning an upscale vacation in Vancouver, or a day and nights as a pit stop of an Alaskan cruise, please check out Stanley Park and the Vancouver Aquarium. Stay at one of the best luxury hotels in Vancouver, or narrow your choices to those within the Fairmont chain. Fairmont hotels are more than reasonably priced 4- and 5-star luxury hotels, they are also leading the way regarding conservation and sustainable tourism. Lucky Vancouver has three, soon to be four Fairmont hotels, so there are plenty to choose from! It's nice to feel good about where your vacation dollars are spent.




Share Your Travel Stories: Shameless Self Promo and GIveaway

Hiya travelers,

I'm giving away a copy of Chuck Thompson's "Smile When You're Lying" - a scathing and super funny critique of the travel writing industry. I loved the book, if you're a working travel writer, you might too, though I'd be surprised if you don't feel the sting, too. Anyhoo, all you need to do is post a link to your not gonna be published anytime soon travel story in my comments,we'll take care of the rest.

Go here:

Travel Nightmare?

Tue, 31 Jul 2007 10:33:31 +0000

I've been having a bit of a travel nightmare. OK that's an exaggeration. It's been hell. Pure hell. It will be hell until I manage to get home. Which I'm hoping will be today. This is not the way I wanted to end BlogHerCon 07.

Do you, by chance, have any travel nightmares? Have you blogged any? Share a link or three please. Maybe Pam will write about our stories....




Airstream?

Sun, 29 Jul 2007 11:14:33 +0000

My partner does not like camping and thinks campers are dumb. Except for the Airstream. She thinks those are cool and she wants one. I'm not sure she wants to camp in it, I think she just wants to park it in the backyard and sit in it or drive it around town or something. I'm not sure. She's weird.

I thought about Airstreams today because of biggirlblue's blog post, Seeing Canada. Would you even for one moment consider traveling across Canada in a camper with your in-laws and your dog and your cat? And remember, before you say anything, once you get across the country in that camper, you have to come back again....
