May 19th 2010 3:25PM If you don't have a friend who can come to your house and watch your pet, you can also hire a pet sitter. For an extra fee, many dog walkers or pet sitters will stay overnight rather than just dropping by a few times a day. For dogs who freak out in unfamiliar surroundings, it's a better (though usually more expensive) option than boarding.
Apr 28th 2010 12:21PM I met a family in Argentina who had a young son that was deathly allergic to nuts as well. Their solution was to learn Spanish as a family and then travel to all of the Spanish-speaking countries where they could communicate the allergy. The child had been learning Spanish since he was a toddler and now spoke even better than the parents.
They'd been all over Spain and to Argentina, Honduras, Costa Rica, Mexico, Colombia and Guatemala, and the mom said that now the son wanted to learn more languages so that he could travel to more places.
Mar 30th 2010 10:25PM I was just in Medellin (and Bogota and Cartagena) this month and loved it. Sure there are shady areas, but overall the city is gorgeous, the people are friendly, and I never felt as though I was in the slightest danger.
Feb 26th 2010 10:53AM Holy cats, this is a great giveaway guys! Bangkok has been on my dream list for a long time.
Jan 26th 2010 12:52PM Thanks, everyone! I'm glad I can help others avoid the mistakes I've made :-)
Dec 7th 2009 5:10PM Thanks for this Brenda! I'm headed to Colombia in March and this will be really helpful for planning. Though when we booked our tickets, we were told Colombia law doesn't allow you to fly in one city and out another (told by two different airlines).
Nov 10th 2009 8:15PM Welcome to the team Andrew! We'll have to talk Iceland sometime. It's my all-time favorite country. . . well, so far.
Oct 19th 2009 6:36PM I can vouch for Bonsoiree in Chicago and Restaurant Zoe in Seattle. Both are fantastic.
Oct 15th 2009 10:52AM Great post Kraig.
Every time I read one of those "go before they're gone" posts, I think about this. By encouraging more people to go see these areas that are being affected most by climate change, are we contributing to their demise? Is it selfish to want to see them "before they're gone" and is there a way we can do that doesn't make us part of the problem?
Aug 20th 2009 11:55PM Dude, I am so not a hipster. I don't even own skinny black jeans, I've never worn black plaid and I don't drink PBR. Okay....so I drink PBR sometimes. But only because I can't resist a $1 beer.
