Traveling is expensive, and that’s no secret. It’s especially expensive for a family. When you add in the cost of airlines tickets, hotel stays, transportation, food, fun activities, and souvenirs, the costs can add up very quickly to where a vacation within the USA can add up to almost $10,000 or a vacation to Europe can easily add up to almost $15,000 for a family of four.
What if you could have one of the major expenses removed such as the airlines tickets? Well, there is a way to do that. In many cases, the airline ticket can be almost half of the cost of the vacation, so if you can get your airline tickets for free, you are basically getting a 50% discount on your trip. (more…)
When you think of good barbecue, you typically think of Texas, Tennessee, or the Carolinas, and though I would agree that the best barbecue comes from those states, you can also find really good and even comparable barbecue right in Salt Lake City, Utah.
How good are they? Well, they won awards in Utah Barbeque contests and California Barbeque contests. This place is not some average corner BBQ meat market, this place is the real deal in Utah and I don’t hesitate at all to say it is the best BBQ in Utah!
Most major cities across the USA have something unique that they do for the holidays. New York has the Rockefeller Tree and Chicago puts holiday lights all over the Chicago Zoo. Salt Lake City has their own thing too. As you know, Salt Lake City is the headquarters for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, also known as the Mormon Church. The original Temple is in Downtown Salt Lake City surrounded by other historical buildings, and this area has become known as Temple Square.
During Christmas, they decorate Temple Square with an abundance of Christmas lights and nativity scenes. It is really unique and worth seeing for a few reasons:
One large part of traveling that is often not thought about and where a lot of vacationers just go with the flow is where they eat while traveling. Even though there is nothing wrong with going about your travels this way, it can turn into a wild-goose chase if you’re in a city you don’t know. Ask my wife Irina about one of the nights of our honeymoon.
So if you happen to be traveling to or from Salt Lake City Utah via I-15 from St. George, Las Vegas or southern California and you are looking for a good diner, look no further than One Man Band Diner in Lehi Utah, about 30 minutes south of Salt Lake City right off the Lehi Main Street exit on the east side of the freeway.
Why is this restaurant worth a visit? (1) the food is good, and (2) the restaurant was in a movie starring Danny Glover!

What is Travel Insurance?
Before I can answer the question whether it is worth the money to buy Travel Insurance, I need to make sure you fully understand what travel insurance is. Simply stated, travel insurance is meant to insure your trip against financial loss due to trip cancellation, illness, injury, lost luggage, stolen items while on vacation and much more.
If you were to ask the average individual who never visited Mexico what food they would expect to eat there, they would probably guess tacos, refried beans, Mexican rice, guacamole, carne asada, carnitas, molé etc. Although this answer would not be incorrect, there is so much more to the cuisine in Mexico than just your stereotyped Mexican food, especially with food in Cancun.
In fact, making the assumption that Mexicans only eat these foods is tantamount to someone in Europe assuming that Americans eat Burgers, hot dogs, fries, and country fried steak every day. In the USA, we eat all types of food. Yes, we do eat the foods mentioned above, but we also eat Mexican inspired food (Tex Mex), Italian food, Asian food, sushi and a lot of everything.
I have news for you if you haven’t traveled much, most other countries eat the same way. They have their own food, but they also eat popular foods from outside of their country. Mexico is no different, especially in Cancun.
