Last Chance to Get to Greenland on the Cheap

Last Chance to Get to Greenland on the Cheap Okay, it's not at the top of many people's travel lists. Who thinks about Greeland? Well, I do, and I've wanted to go for a while.

Road trip tip: How to sleep comfortably in your car

I have slept in a car once on a road trip. When I drove from Odense, Denmark to Paris where people are smiling more than when I was there, my friend and I pulled off of the road somewhere to sleep. We could have been in France. I can't remember. What I do remember is that it...

Gadling's guide to Summer music

Gadling's guide to Summer music Summer. Music. Could any two words in the English language possibly go so well together? There's just something about warm weather that makes you want to be outside, bare feet touching soft grass and dirt underfoot, hands in the cool night air, eardrums fluttering to the...

5 study abroad destinations you've never considered (but should)

5 study abroad destinations you've never considered (but should) "I hate when people who have just studied abroad try to talk me into doing the same thing," a college friend of mine once told me. "Yeah, that is annoying," I told him after I had just returned from a semester in Morocco. "But you really should." Studying abroad is not only...

Problem with using credit card in Europe? Try these

Problem with using credit card in Europe? Try these This read by Ed Perkins of Tribune Media Services reminded me of a problem I had in Amsterdam this past December. When trying to buy a train ticket at one of the kiosks with my credit card, I was asked for a pin number. If I have one, I can't know it. I ended up going to a...

Need New Year's Eve ideas? Crash some plates!

Need New Year's Eve ideas? Crash some plates! I assure you that when the ball drops on the last day of 2008, I will not be in Times Square. I will be nowhere near Times Square. So, unless you like the thought of being shoulder-to-shoulder with people you've never met while freezing and lamenting the lack of public...

Pickpockets in Copenhagen: Gadling blogger's victim story. Part 2. Was it Romanians? I can still see the pocket of my daypack gaping open right before I got that panicked, sinking feeling. It was a feeling that I couldn't quite believe I was having. Up to that point, my trip to Denmark though Amsterdam had happened without a hitch, and I had yet to do the...

Pickpockets in Copenhagen? A Gadling blogger's victim story. Part One

Pickpockets in Copenhagen? A Gadling blogger's victim story. Part One Yep, it's happened. My wallet was taken out of my daypack-style backpack in Copenhagen, Denmark on Monday. And yes, I know better than to have my credit card with it. As much as it was a bummer to lose the money, the credit card put me on edge. I think I'm better now. I...

Would you leave The States if Obama loses?

Would you leave The States if Obama loses? Election day is next Tuesday and Americans are poised to make one of the most critical decisions in US history.
