Best Airplane Seats 5 Tips on How to Get Them on your next flight  To catch a flight to my 67th country, I found it can be a challenge. (Solo Trekker does not book airlines or receive fees from any airline.)

Months ago I found that if your tour changes its dates, your airline may charge you 2X. (First, you may have a fee of $350 and then a new fare charge of $600! I paid about $1900 for my economy flight of $950. My tour gave me credit.) I thought it was easy from there. Stay tuned!

If you can’t pay for an upgrade to Business Class, you will be in a maze of challenges to get a good seat. Here is what I just found and some solutions.

Spring Vacation

Spring Vacation Solo Travel Destinations

Spring Vacation Solo Travel Destinations

Spring Vacation Solo Travel Destinations. With my updated spring vacation recommendation, I risk being (rightfully) criticized for boosting my own home town, Washington, DC. However, it is a solo travel destination that has something for everyone. Although it can be pricey, I included some of my personal budget recommendations.

During my early student days, Washington was a city primarily known for government. President Kennedy once famously described it as a “city with northern charm and southern efficiency.” In the intervening decades, DC has grown and grown up to be an exciting international metropolitan area filled with cutting-edge tech start-up’s and yes, local fashion.

One special reason to travel in spring is that both airfare and lodg...

Travel Destination France Great Prices: France, a perpetually favorite destination, always seems expensive. As much as I love it, it is always a question of how to stay on budget, especially in Paris.  The highest price, after airfare, is always lodging.

After nine trips to France, here are the top ways I have found to save on lodging while still keeping a level of quality:

  1. Traveling off-season. This provides an immediate discount of up to 50% off. I have stayed in the heart of Paris Left Bank in a 4 star hotel for half-price. My charming guest room featured oil paintings and the style for which Paris is known. I was walking distance from everything from Notre Dame to the Musee d’Orsay...

Traveling Packing Methods Tips

Traveling Packing Methods Tips. If you pack your travel stuff properly, you’ll get more in but how do you do that? What packing method should you employ?

We think all travelers develop their own packing method over time. You start to see what works for you and over time you get better and better at it as you travel more.

We’ve heard repeatedly that rolling your clothes is the best way to keep them from wrinkling. Hummm… It’s never worked for us. Maybe it’s the way we roll them. Our backpacker friends swear by this. For big items like pants, skirts, shirts, blouses, and sweaters, lay your item face down. Fold the sleeves back… get everything pretty flat and then roll the item up from the bottom.

Why Travel To Barcelona Alone? Travelling alone may seem scary and overwhelming, especially the first time. But if you do it right, it can be one of the most rewarding and liberating experiences you could have. Unlike travelling in a more conventional way, visiting a city on your own truly opens your mind. You learn to appreciate your own company and get out of your comfort zone by trying things you’ve never done before.

Spain, in general, is an excellent choice for travelling solo, with delicious food, lots of culturally rich places and incredible attractions that will keep you so entertained that you won’t miss anyone’s company.

Here are 6 reasons why travel to Barcelona alone:
