Trudeau International Airport, Montreal, 8:30 p.m.

Nantes Atlantique Airport, July 19, 2018 “Are we in France, already?” We walk by a couple kissing passionately outside the departure hall, in front of gate 12. The guy is also holding the stub of a hand-rolled cigarette between two fingers. It does look like typical French behaviour. I’ll never know what language they speak, though. They’re not chatting, they’re communicating… ahem, differently. But maybe they are locals, after all—this is Montreal, some of our disgusting French habits made it ...

The Unexpected Perks of Staying in a Hostel

5 Financial decisions that helped achieve my travel goals

While most of us have different reasons to travel, there are some who find reasons to travel. That’s how profoundly travel has taken over us. Work hard, save up and travel far is probably the motto of travellers these days. Though we save up money for various reasons, saving up for travel is not something all can relate to. We save money to buy a phone, a bike, a car, a house or anything that fancies our mind. Most of us don’t save up to spend it largely on travels and experiences. But i...

Traveling to Venice? Here’s the ultimate shortlist of recommendations for how not to spend your time, money, energy, and dignity while not further tourist-ing this delicate island city to death. 1. Do NOT go to Harry’s Bar.

He speculated that Mr. Cip’s unique business plan for Harry’s...

Get Rid of Your Timeshare, Start Traveling to Different Places Instead

Timeshare travel has been considered outdated. However, millennials are gaining interest in this form of vacationing.

Considering millennials as the generation that values experiences over material possessions, this is a surprising trend.

Trevor’s Travels: Fawnskin is a wonderful community well worth visiting

For those who do so, they will drive through the village of Fawnskin. As the saying goes, it’s best not to blink or you’ll miss it; Fawnskin is that small. It’s been getting sm...
