    If you are a traveler, you have probably heard of the Southwest Airlines Companion Pass. Well, we were lucky enough to earn it for a year, and here’s our complete Southwest Airlines Companion Pass review. Southwest Airlines has a great travel credit card, especially if you fly Southwest a lot. About two years ago, we were approved for a Southwest travel credit card and started earning points. The points never disappear (unless you cancel the card) and can easily be redeemed for Southwest flights.

    9 Reasons You Should Visit Cuba Now

    1. You Still Can! After President Obama opened up tourism to Cuba without needing a specific visa, tons more Americans started visiting the Caribbean island. However, it wasn’t too long after Trump got elected that he decided to, once again, block open tourism to Cuba.

Because who knows what the hell Trump is going to do next. You should visit while…

    How to Spend a Long Weekend in Nashville

    Nashville, Tennessee is known primarily for its country music scene, which gives it the nickname Music City. Whether you are a big country music fan or not, Nashville is still an outstanding place to visit with great food, live music, and nightlife. Where to Stay in Nashville: We stayed at an Airbnb in East Nashville, just a few blocks from 5 Points. It was cheaper than staying in Nashville’s slightly more central neighborhoods: the Gulch, Downtown, or Music Row. However, we didn’t find staying in 5 Points inconvenient at all. In fact, there were a ton of places in East…

    Workaway Experience in La Rioja, Spain

    If you haven’t heard of workaway, it is a type of exchange program where you offer up a few hours of work each day in exchange for accomodation and food.

  • Mostar View

    24 Hours in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Mostar is a small city in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a newer country that’s chock-full of recent history given the Bosnian War in the 1990’s. While it’s not the most popular place to visit, more and more people are traveling to Mostar. It probably helps that it’s a quick bus ride from Dubrovnik, a super popular travel destination. The bus from Dubrovnik to Mostar costs about $20 (115 HRK) and is scheduled to take about 3.5 hours. However, from our experience, expect it to take about an hour longer. If you’re visiting Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, or anywhere in the area,…

    Last year, we visited Costa Rica during the rainy season. While it didn’t rain the entire time, there was definitely a lot of rain, especially in the Could Forest of Monteverde and the town of La Fortuna, near the Arenal Volcano.
