Right up there with, “How’s the weather in THIS PLACE during THAT MONTH?” (PSST! We have an answer for that – just click here), this is one of the most-often travel-related questions I see on vacation/holiday/travel message groups:
“When is the best time of year to go to THIS PLACE?”
The answer to that would vary greatly, depending upon wherever THIS PLACE is – it all depends on where in the world it is, weather and other “nature” factors, etc. Well, some folks from the UK were able to gather all the data from all the places 🙂 and came up with this very helpful resource that will allow you to see the high, medium and low travel season of every country in the world throughout an entire year:

l’ve already posted about how you can sign up for hotel programs and, not surprisingly, I’ve certainly signed up for quite a few. In fact, when I look at AwardWallet, I see that I have accounts with these hotel programs:
- Starwood Preferred Guest
- Marriott Rewards
- Hilton Honors

- IHG Rewards Club
- Le Club Accorhotels
- Wyndham Rewards
- Choice Privileges
- La Quinta Rewards

Sometimes international travel can be a breeze. Just have a plane ticket, a valid passport and sometimes maybe a visa, and you’re free to go to almost any country you want. But sometimes you may be traveling to a country that may not have the same health care standards as where you live and you’ll need one or more vaccinations to ensure you’ll stay free of diseases and other health issues that may be present in the place you’re visiting. The issue becomes even more complicated if you’re traveling with children or if you yourself have a chronic disease or are immunocompromised or pregnant, among other issues.
So if you have to go somewhere internationally, what do you do, and how do you find out what steps in need to take, in terms of vaccinations, you should get before you travel?

We always use a VPN while traveling and connecting to the internet over a public Wi-Fi network. It keeps our private information, well, it keeps it private. We’ve been using WiTopia for several years but we recently had to look for a new provider.
See, when we started writing the blog, we needed to look for a inexpensive laptop that would allow us to write articles while on the road. Our MacBook Air was showing its age and we didn’t want to spend that much on a computer we didn’t need to use that often. We decided to get a HP Chromebook. It did everything we wanted, cost a fraction of a comparable Mac product and had a much longer battery life.
After buying the Chromebook, I tried to install the personalVPN from WiTopia onto the Chromebook. Major fail. I checked the help page of the WiTopia website and found this disclaimer:

When you’re traveling by plane, you can sometimes be a little more disorganized than usual. You’re holding a carry-on, personal item, suitcase and maybe a coat and a bag of lunch, too. So when you’ve finally checked in, your boarding pass may be the least important things in your physical and mental list of “stuff.” That notwithstanding, here are some things you should NEVER do with your boarding pass:
