These Have Got To Be THE BEST Travel-Related Twitter Accounts Ever

Social media…what would we do without it? Well, probably quite a lot, LOL! Twitter, in particular, has a lot of fans and a lot of naysayers, and I’ve seen and experienced both sides of that coin. But I do have to admit there are a lot of corporate Twitter accounts out there that are very well done and just, well, FUN! In between their plain ol’ ho hum tweets, places such as Wendy’s, Charmin, Netflix, and even Moon Pie will throw out some zingers that can definitely put a smile on your face, and even an occasional, “Oh no (s)he di’in’t!” 😉

But there’s a handful of travel-related Twitter accounts that I find particular helpful, fun and informative. Check these out:

Tourism Slogans Of Every Country In The World: The Good, The Bad & The “Did Someone Pay You To Make That Up?”

Not surprisingly, countries do quite a bit to market themselves in an effort to increase tourism, and one of those things is to use slogans. I know, who knew, right? Anyway, a U.K.-based website called FamilyBreakFinder collected all of them a few years ago (there are 38 countries that don’t have a slogan, but all the rest do) and put them onto one big map.

In looking at the map, some of the slogans are lovely (Bahamas: “Life is Grand”),  others make us wonder if they couldn’t have worked a little harder to make up a nice one (Slovakia: “Travel in Slovakia – Good Idea”) and still others make us a little bit sad (Syria: “Always Beautiful.”). It was also kind of fun to see the countries who tried to be as creative as possible (i.e. Djibouti’s is “Djibeauty,” and Slovenia’s is “I feel sLOVEnia”). Here they all are:

You’re Going to WDW & Have Friends or Family Who Can Buy FL Resident Tickets. Here’s What You Need To Know.

It’s no secret that tickets to Walt Disney World (WDW) are EXPENSIVE. As in “over $100 per day” expensive if you buy tickets for just a few days, and several hundred dollars if you decide to spring for an annual or seasonal pass. Granted there are a few ways to try possibly get them a little cheaper:

The above being said, Florida residents are eligible for specially priced park tickets and annual/seasonal passes at Walt Disney World. But what proves residency? And what if you live out of state but have a friend or relative who lives in the state, can they get you tickets or passes? What about your kids? Read on, friends…

Save 20% Or Earn 20 Points Per Dollar On Airfare With This AMEX Offer

The AMEX Offers program by American Express provides targeted discounts or bonus point earning opportunities to cardholders when they’re logged into their account. These offers are great because the savings you earn offset the annual fees that American Express charges for many of their points earning credit cards. While looking at my account this month, I found a new AMEX offer that’s really appealing. We received this offer on several different cards and the offer was different depending on the card it was offered on. Since you can only attach an AMEX Offer to a single card (once you select it for one card, it disappears on all your other cards), it’s important to check all of your card accounts before selecting your offer.

Here’s the offers we received for charges from JetBlue:

Don’t Forget To Bring This On Your Next Trip (Like I Did)

I’m usually good about remembering to bring things when I travel. Given, I still need to use a packing list but if that’s what I need to keep myself organized, so be it. This trip I didn’t bring something with me that I should have because I THOUGHT I didn’t have any use for it. Little did I know, before the end of my travel day I would end up wishing I had this item with me. I now know one thing I didn’t know before:
