All Inclusive Getaways? It’s Not Just for The Caribbean

For many of us the idea of going to an all inclusive resort brings up images of a young couple enjoying a Caribbean getaway during the colder months or maybe a family getaway.

If you aren’t to familiar with the all inclusive resorts, the concept is fairly straightforward. When you book your stay everything is included, everything! All meals, all drinks including beer and mixed beverages as well. Many places also include activities such as sailing, tennis, and live shows as well. I have to say that heading off to an all inclusive resort has more of the vacation vibe vs a “traveler” feel to it. Ever got back from traveling and said aloud “I need a vacation”? Then this is it. Sometimes you just want to have fun and leave everything behind, why not leave your wallet behind too. You arrive, put your wallet in your room safe and there it stays while you chill out and indulge into good food and drinks with no bill at the end!

The Pros and Cons of Flying Norwegian Air

20140622-073334-27214683.jpg

I recently began flying Norwegian Airlines, a relatively new carrier to the U.S. that is making a big push into long haul routes. Billed as a low cost airline, their expansion has offered some eye catching fares. Though these low prices haven’t been without their pitfalls. There isn’t much “Norwegian” about this airline’s long haul […]

Tough Mudder- Here We Go Again

20140608-172608-62768819.jpg

After doing two Tough Mudder’s last year, I definitely had the urge for more. It would be eight weeks between events and now, being a veteran of one, my plan was to one up myself and not simply finish. I recruited my brother, an accomplished Ironman triathlete to run with me this time. Although he […]

A Taste of Mongolia in Dublin

The idea of stopping to eat at The Mongolian BBQ while in Dublin just didn’t seem right. Ireland, Mongolian food? Well I had my share of Guinness stew and part of the fun of being in a large city is the vast array of food from different cultures. I had passed by this place on […]
