Tips to Decide Whether to Rent a Car or Take a Tour Bus in Iceland

There is an age-old question of all travelers going anywhere: to rent a car, or not to rent a car? If you’re planning a trip to Iceland, you probably already have a loose itinerary in mind and are now just looking at logistics to carry out all your adventurous plans. If you need to decide whether to rent a car or take a tour bus in Iceland, you’re going to need all the facts.

Christmas in Iceland

There are two well-known mountain-dwelling trolls in Iceland named Gryla and Leppalúði. The 13 sons of these two trolls are the sons of Christmas, so Christmas in Iceland has 13 “Santa Clauses”. But these sons of Yule lads are not like the jolly old St. Nick that Americans know and love; they are mean and mischievous Yule lads.

All Saints Day in Spain

November 1 is All Saints Day in Spain. Each year, people gather together to remember their loved ones who are no longer with us. Cemeteries are filled with people celebrating, not mourning, deceased relatives. People cover gravestones in elaborate floral displays, candles, and gifts as they celebrate their memories. It’s a beautiful holiday!

Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

Epcot breaks stereotypes when it comes to traditional foods of countries around the world. In addition to all the permanent and temporary countries in Epcot during the International Food and Wine Festival, there are celebrity chefs, television show tapings, demonstrations, seminars, and tastings. It can be overwhelming if you walk into it without knowing what to expect!

I’ve noticed that when people tell me they’re traveling to Spain, it usually includes only a Madrid or Barcelona trip. While big cities are great, they don’t capture the essence of Spain. I’m here to entice you to either skip or add on to a trip to the big cities and discover the white villages of Andalusia.

Everyone who travels inevitably makes mistakes. Most of the time, we spend our time trying to avoid disastrous travel mistakes. Sometimes, the best memories come out of wrong turns and mishaps. If everything always went perfectly, it would be much more boring. Throughout my travels, I’ve learned that some mistakes are good to make.

Earn Miles and Points for Everyday Activities

Have you ever wondered how people who travel often tend to fly first class or stay in five-star hotels? With all that traveling, how do they find the extra money to vacation luxuriously? If you know what to look for, like earning miles and points for every day activities, you can travel luxuriously on a budget too.

Life After Living Abroad

I’ve been living in the past since I returned to the United States after my fairy tale year living in Southern Spain in 2014-2015. It’s been over a year since I got back physically, but mentally I’m still there. I’m going through the motions of living back home, but I’m not really here.
