Solo Travel Warnings, Avoid Arrest Abroad: In your plan to go abroad for fun, it is easy to miss strict laws at your chosen spot. In Asia and the Mideast, drug laws are well-known. In one such destination, I recall at Immigration/Customs a sign that “drug traffickers face the death penalty”. In one popular Mideast destination on a past trip, I learned there were then 200+ drugs that carried a 4 year jail term for possession. The shock? It included certain drugs legal at home and even others used at home but still able to be detected later on a lab test abroad.

What to do? As Solo Travel Warnings they say, “know before you go”. Since many of us in the US and Canada go to Europe often, it is easy to overlook their rules...

American Thanksgiving

American Thanksgiving Recipe:  green bean casserole! I remember the day my taste buds were changed forever: Thanksgiving 1985 and my host mother in Maryland USA, in whose family I was living as a student for the year, produced the iconic green bean casserole.

I have been making American Thanksgiving ever since and slowly but surely turning Kiwis onto this vege dish that goes brilliantly with Tom Turkey. However, it’s so good that when I go back to America and we all get together for dinner, we’ve been known to make TWO casseroles just so we have a whole one left for the next day.

Update: sadly Carol, my American mom, passed away just before Thanksgiving 2019, so I now share this post in her honour. x

Here’s how to get your American Thanksgiving on and make Carol’s Green Bean Cassero...

Single Travel Tips

Single Travel Tips. Avoiding Booking Mistakes.Why pay too much for the same room or flight? See our five updated tips before you book your Solo Travel.

1. Single Travel Tips advise. Don’t check “1 room” without checking “1 Adult”. Why? When you look for a hotel or B&B, don’t just assume that the price listed is the best price! The default for most booking engines is for 2 adults even if you say you want 1 room.  In North America, Single Travel Tips price usually is the so-called room or “rack” rate. However, primarily in Europe, rooms are often offered for solo occupancy. (Search also for “studio” or “single travel tips room”.) Using our booking engine of more than 800,000+ lodgings on our home page, we have seen discounts of up to 40+ percent for solo occupancy...

Solo Vacations Travel. 6 Tips On How to Save on Solo VacationsTravel:  As much as I love the road less traveled by, dodging leering crocodiles and navigating cholera epidemics and low grade civil wars, I have been mulling ways to have a fall vacation without adding a rider to  my life insurance policy.

The first rule of thumb on pricing on Solo Vacations Travel: It’s always about supply and demand. The best strategies? Demand goes way down when rumors of bad weather are plentiful. In reality, these dire predictions are not necessarily accurate. Secondly, back to school reduces demand since many parents and families are not going on vacation then. You will find fewer crowds and more bargaining power. Here are 6 of my strategies...

Solo Wild Travel, Montville Australia: Montville is a small town that is found on the eastern coast of Queensland. It has a population of about 886 people. Despite being sparsely populated, the town has got unique sites and features that you could discover all alone. The town is also popularly known as “Creative Heart of the Sunshine Coast.”

With time they became a farming community until around the 70s when tourists started discovering the fantastic features at the Sunshine Coast.

Solo Travel Destination-Alaska in Winter. For many solos, you plan the next trip in winter to bask in the sun or stroll miles of palm covered beaches. However, for adventure travel, the wintry months bring up a

host of other options. From heli-skiing to mushing your way dog sledding through ice and snow, there are endless ways to go. I once had a sojourn to Siberia in January. Not everyone was looking to go there then. En route at passport control in Moscow, I saw a long line for “citizens” while my co-worker and I were the only ones at the line for foreigners!

Although I had also been through Antarctica Chile in their winter, I had only seen Alaska in the summer. When I received an inquiry from one of our solo travelers as to winter trips there, especially to...
