Tips and Tricks


“Where to next?” It’s mount question that crosses my mind on a regular basis. I get all giddy thinking about upcoming travel plans.

When one trip is planned, all I can think about is making plans...

All year round, we find ways to get outside in Boulder. In the dead of winter we will sometimes have a 60 or 70 degree (Fahrenheit) day where people will head out for a jog, hike, or bike ride.

In short, yes, travel insurance is worth it. We all know the critics out there, and the confident travelers who believe they are so invincible that they don’t need travel insurance. While it is a personal decision (security won’t kick you off the plane if you don’t have it), buying travel insurance is smart and safe not only for your health but also for your...

I never know what to expect when I tell someone about an upcoming solo travel trip. While some people are overly enthusiastic about how amazing it’s going to be, there will always be critics who just don’t understand what could possibly make me want to travel all by myself in a foreign country that I have never been to before.
