5 STEPS TO BOOKING A CHEAP FLIGHT ONLINE

by nomadicmatt.com

Booking a flight can be one of the most stressful parts about travel! Airfare is expensive and, with variation in prices, we often worry that if we buy right now, prices could drop and we’d be the person who paid the most money for the flight. “Maybe if I wait just a little longer, prices will drop,” we say to ourselves.

I used to spend hours upon hours searching for the right price. I’d search multiple websites, second-guess myself, and worry about what happens when the prices drop. I would hold off on buying, waiting for that perfect moment. It was like trying to time the market – it simply doesn’t work. 99 times out of 100, you lose out. On a recent trip from Austin, a one-way ticket on American Airlines was $206 USD. The next day it was $149 USD and a BETTER route. When I checked a few hours later, it was back to $206 USD.

ESCRITO POR ANGIE CASTELLS, masedimburgo.com

As we brace ourselves to move abroad for the third time in a few years, I look back and I know that squeezing our lives into a suitcase and leaving our native Barcelona was the best decision that we could have possibly made. Because when you move away, when you turn your life into a journey filled with uncertainty, you grow up in unexpected ways.

You face new challenges, you get to know parts of you you didn’t know existed, you’re amazed at yourself and at the world. You learn, you broaden your horizons. You unlearn, and after coming down and embracing a few lessons, you start growing in humility. You evolve. You feel homesick… and you shape memories that will stay with you forever. If you’ve ever lived away from home or embarked on a long journey, I’m sure you too have felt these 17 things that change forever when you live abroad.

Hidden Beach-Playa del Amor, Marieta Islands, Mexico

atlasobscura.com

A lovers’ beach, tucked below the surface of the island, provides a safe haven for romance. A gaping hole in the surface of the lush green island opens onto a secret beach, with ample shade, sun, and crystal-clear water.
Playa del Amor, more commonly known as the Hidden Beach, is a feature of one of the Marieta Islands, located west of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, at the mouth of Banderas Bay. It looks like something out of a fantasy novel: a wide, sandy cavern with the blue waters of the Pacific rushing in. The islands are an archipelago, a chain of land formations formed by underwater volcano eruptions. They themselves are natural wonders, but it was something other than volcanic activity that brought the burrowed beach to light.

Traveling in Mexico is different than traveling in Canada or the United States. Gone are the strict traffic rules nearly all Norte Americanos are programmed to follow. Signage, customs, courtesies, and right-of-way are all irregular to an unseasoned driver.

THE IN-DEPTH GUIDE TO BUYING AN RTW TICKET

nomadicmatt.com

Round the world (RTW) tickets can be a convenient way to fly around the world. They get you where you want to go without you having to worry about booking flights along the way as you pre-book all your tickets in advance! Simple and convenient! Moreover, by purchasing them in one giant bulk package, you can save yourself money on the total price of the ticket.

While round the world tickets are frequently advocated by many travel writers, they are not always the best option for travelers, even if you are going around the world. These tickets come with many rules and conditions that might not work for you. I like them in certain situations. In this article, I’ll explain how they work and when I think you should buy them. After ten years of travel and close to 500 flights, I’ve experienced a lot of situations when these tickets were the best choice – and when they weren’t.
