In a new monthly feature, BarrisTourista will spotlight an adventure travel. This month, Lauren of Outdoorsy Diva, shares highlights of her experience hang gliding in Florida. Here are Lauren’s words:
Another amazing glitch has come and gone. This time it was San Francisco or Los Angeles to Auckland, New Zealand for $220 roundtrip. Oh wait, or is it Miami to Brazil or Panama for $118 round trip? Or what about East Coast cities to Europe for $200 round trip. The point is, these glitch or error airfares are crazy. But some of them could have lasted longer. That’s right, due to novice travelers breaking the cardinal rules of glitch fares, some of these fares ended earlier than they should have, causing some fliers who were in the midst of purchasing or ticketing to get their plans cancelled. Here are the Do’s and Don’ts of glitch airfare etiquette. Spread the word so we can all book more flights. Happy Hunting!

In this month’s Teen Travel Chat, our teen correspondent Brooke discusses her spring break in Chicagoland.
Spring break 2016 came with a much needed and appreciated breath of fresh air and time to sit back and enjoy being on vacation with my family. Although the school year has at times seemed to go by very slow (like in some of my classes I don’t particularly have an interest in), time has once again made me realize how quick my sophomore year in high school will soon come to an end. It has also forced me to come to terms with the fact that I have to get up before the sun comes up Monday morning. For my spring break this year, my family and I traveled to the Windy City and enjoyed adventuring, eating, and taking it easy.
Cruises are a fantastic way to see a number of places quickly and affordably. You meet new people, eat, drink, party, and see the world. But the bill can run up quickly on a cruise. And one key way that the tab gets higher is when people head ashore for shore excursions. So how do you see the best of the island/country/destination without breaking the bank? Check out these tips on how to save money on cruise excursions.
Las Vegas is a great city for a weekend (or long weekend) getaway. You get in, you have fun, you get out. Oftentimes visitors try to pack light when making the trek to the desert, but how do you accomplish that in a city that stays jumping until the wee hours of the morning? You bring your Vegas essentials and minimize the rest. Here is a list of packing essentials for Vegas so that you can accomplish the trip with one bag…and not bust.
Whenever I travel, I try to experience a place like the locals do. Not to mention, I am a sucker for delicious food. So a foodie tour is often a great option for experiencing a city or country as a local and trying out those small spots that may be off the radar. So when I ventured to Turks and Caicos for some R&R, the first thing I researched was foodie tours, and I found the lovely Taste of TCI Food Tours Turks and Caicos.
This post is an oldie but goodie. But given the recent influx of “glitch” and unpublished airfare sales, it was time to dust it off for the readers. Remember, move quickly to get those great deals. Enjoy!
