see I recently came across an article about why it is a bad idea to date girls who travel. Ouch! Apparently, it has gone viral and been translated into six languages because it resonates with so many. And as I read it, I find myself simultaneously offended and utterly flattered. The essay reads as a cautionary tale for young bachelors. It says, “Don’t date a girl who travels. She is hard to please. The usual dinner-movie date at the mall will suck the life out of her.

A Unique Experience in Mexico (VIDEO)

get link For years I’ve heard of Cancun and Playa del Carmen being popular destinations in Mexico. And I was never particularly attracted to the Spring-Break-style travel experience I perceived them to provide. But on a recent trip to the region, I found that there is more to the Mayan Riviera, than beach, sun and booze. Way more. In particular, there is a rather unique attraction that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Watch my video to find out what it is.

Luca Lampariello on The Importance of Learning a New Language (VIDEO)

http://cinziamazzamakeup.com/?x=prezzo-viagra-generico-100-mg-pagamento-online-a-Genova On my website, TravelwithKate.com I strive to inspire others to travel as a way to better their lives. I believe curiosity and respect for different cultures brings great reward when we reach out and connect. And if you speak the language, you have an instant in!

NYC Behind European Cities in Free-Wifi Race

http://cinziamazzamakeup.com/?x=comprare-levitra-Abruzzo Traveling over the summer, I visited a few of the major European capitals including Rome, London and Paris where I found they have abundantly adopted free wifi.

But… Hey, New York! You are behind the times.…
