Last week, dog lovers spent a couple nights watching the Westminster Dog Show, watching as Malachy the Pekingese took home “Best in Show.” It’s an example that Americans seem to be more attached to their pets than ever before. Certainly, the number of people traveling with their pets – even internationally – is on the rise. Many people feel as…

I’m pretty sure that your bucket list – like mine – includes visiting Carnival in Rio at least once. Well, here’s your shot. It starts tomorrow (Saturday, the 18th) and continues through Fat Tuesday.

For most of us, it’s unimaginable to think that you might have to live without a mobile phone for even a couple of hours – and that includes when you’re traveling internationally. More and more, your smartphone is an invaluable travel tool. For this reason BlackBerry owners have to be concerned with the avalanche of bad news surrounding Research in…
