Advancements in technology have completely changed the face of travel in the past decade, and new travel apps are continuing to make booking travel, planning trips, eating abroad, splitting costs, and tracking your movements easier every day.

Nothing ruins a vacation faster than getting sick. You’ve planned your trip, taken time away from work and spent your hard-earned cash on flights, hotels, and tours all to get hit with an illness that leaves you stuck in bed.  Unfortunately, it happens pretty often.

Christmas lights at night with decorated Christmas tree.

Christmas will be here before you know it — and by “here,” we mean everywhere!  That said, not every country celebrates this festive winter holiday the same way we do in America.  For instance, although Santa’s red suit and white beard may seem completely inseparable from Christmas to us, some children await their annual gift delivery from an ancient pagan…

Butternut squash wellington on white plate on red table cloth.

Though historians debate the origins of the British classic Beef Wellington, many believe it owes its name to the Duke of Wellington, who famously defeated Napoleon.
