Cuba might just be the most talked about destination for Americans after rules loosened up on visiting the island nation. Find out about the changes in an article from the Washington Post.
For Americans, visiting Cuba is a bit of a pain since currently only charters fly there from the US. For those that have visited, it usually meant flying to the Caribbean and catching a flight to Havana from there.
As of this morning, one online travel agency is now selling flights to Cuba from the U.S. Continue reading

At the beginning of the month, Kim, Lucas and I got stuck in Orlando during our first trip of 2015. Our flight was cancelled due to a potential snow storm that was supposed to hit the NYC area on Super Bowl Sunday. From what friends told me, around the time our flight would’ve landed, the weather really wasn’t so bad…

I came across an article from Fox News which wondered “Are these America’s happiest airports?” Continue reading
