Panama cheap flights-get the office, hop a river cruise

discovery river cruise panama

Ever thought about looking into airfares to Panama? I’m telling you it’s highly underrated. A friend of mine just got back from a kayaking trip on the Chagres River on the Caribbean coast of Panama. Some of you geography buffs might remember it as the river the Spanish used to bring their treasure from Peru to Spanish Main. Talk about a nature adventure. In this hot steamy weather you’re surrounded by howler monkeys deep in the forest, three-toed sloths hanging from trees without a care in the world and vibrant … More…

The Freedom of Online Travel

the good old days

Last week when I wrote about older people and some of the indignities they have to go through when traveling, you may have gotten the impression that the good old days of travel are over. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Traveling was NOT so much better fifty years ago. Take a look: Cost For example, when have there been flight tickets for 5 dollars?

Trapped on a plane-JetBlue Shame on You

snowstorm

My husband called me from New York on Thursday and screamed down the line  “I’ve gotta change my ticket, there’s a bad storm coming.” I was like oh, come on there’s no storm, I haven’t heard a thing on the news.  He said it was supposed to be huge and the last thing he wanted to get was stuck or bumped or canceled.
