Airfare: There’s no doubting that airfares are on the rise this year. Depending on whom you ask, average fares are up 10% to 20% over last year. This is due to three factors: rising demand, higher fuel costs, and a reduction in the number of seats flying.Details
No surprise here but Orlando is the #1 US destination for “family spring break”. If you’re planning your spring break in Orlando, there’s a lot to see and do – all perfect for families of any age and size.

There’s SeaWorld and Discovery Cove and Aquatica Water Park, and a chance to see performances by Cirque du Soleil and the Blue Man Group. Splash down at one of the two water parks in the area, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach – you and your family will love the water slides, wading pools, there’s even a water play area for small children.Details

Our youmustbetrippin.com blog scored another big hit in the mainstream media last week when the Washington Post Style section called to ask for advice on choosing luggage.
My advice? Don’t skimp! Paying a premium for high quality, durable luggage is always worth the extra cost for a frequent traveler. That’s because you use it nearly every week. It takes a beating. And it’s something that you don’t want to break down in the middle of a long trip. (Have you ever tried to maneuver a rollaboard with broken wheels or missing handle through an airport? Ever had your bag show up on the luggage carousel wrapped up in a large clear plastic bag because its zippers failed in the cargo hold?) Also, choose brands that offer strong warranties–many offer lifetime guarantees that will repair or replace broken bags.Details
ON THE NEVADA BORDER – While driving south on U.S. 95 between Reno and Las Vegas, I spotted a small sign that read “Scotty’s Castle” with an arrow pointing west. It might not have drawn my attention except for this one factor:
Several years earlier, I read a newspaper story about an old desert rat who used empty wine and beer bottles to build a house somewhere in the California desert. Always on the lookout for things of an unusual nature, I instantly figured that this must be the bottle place so I turned west on Highway 267 and went to take a look.Details
It’s the most, wonderful time of the year! These words may make you think of an old Christmas song, but I am not referring to December 25th. It is the NCAA basketball tournament and this, for me, is by far the best time of the year. Not only is it just a pleasant time of year with spring starting to come around, but it is the sports that make it the best, and the absolute best of the best is March Madness, the Big Dance, the Tournament. Today kicks off the Sweet 16 and you better believe I will be glued to my TV tonight and tomorrow to catch all the action.Details
A few months ago, I wrote about a few new books about motorcycling that I was planning to read. When I got back from my recent trip to the Gulf Coast, I finally got a chance to sit down and read one of the books on the top of my list, and I just had to tell you about it.
Big Sid’s Vincati by Matthew Biberman is subtitled “The Story of a Father, a Son and the Motorcycle of a Lifetime.” It’s the true story of how motorcycling helped to bring a family together, and how the love of a motorcycle can help to heal old wounds.Details
