Funny Signs Spotted When Traveling

South Africa - Loo with a View

One of the favorite things I love about traveling is sign spotting – coming across the funny signs that don’t quite translate very well into English, or that have an interesting history or strange reason for being. I’ve put together a sample of some of the unusual signs I have feasted my eyes on over the years so you can have a few giggles yourself.

The Dos and Don’ts of Booking a Safari in Kenya

Giraffes in Road

Lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and cape buffaloes converging en masse, oh my, the Big Five! Most people about to book their first Kenyan safari will likely admit that the trip is the culmination of a dream fed from youthful reading of National Geographic or watching Discovery Channel. Who, after all, does not want to be meters away from the world’s most notoriously exciting animals?

Touring the Windy City from Above on a Chicago Helicopter Tour

Chicago helicopter tour

I’ve explored the Windy City from plenty of angles: often on foot, sometimes by boat, but never before from the air. To say that touring Chicago by helicopter provides a different perspective would be a huge understatement. Taking off from Midway Airport, located to the southwest of the city, I immediately developed a new appreciation […]

Las Vegas Night Strip Helicopter Tour

As the sun sets on Las Vegas, the slumbering city comes to life. Glittery lights blink awake, the volume of competing music from different venues increases and the sounds of laughter and slot machines fill the air. When darkness falls, Vegas rises.

That’s what makes the Las Vegas Night Strip Helicopter Tour such a great way to see the city. Or, as my girlfriends and I used it, the perfect way to get hyped up for a night out on the town. We knew we were in for a great time when we were greeted at check-in with champagne – that’s our kind of tour!

[PHOTOS] Animals of the Galapagos Islands

As a devout nature-lover, the Galapagos Islands had been on my travel bucket list for years before I finally took a week-long, small ship eco-cruise through the archipelago. Made famous by Charles Darwin (who concocted his Theory of Evolution based on his groundbreaking scientific discoveries there), the chain of islands is located 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, and 97.5% of their land is devoted to a national park. As a result, the remarkably bio-diverse ecosystems feature a vast array of wildlife that seem to have no fear of humans. Here are just a few of the incredible animals you might see while on a Galapagos Islands tour.
