  • Remember the story a year ago about the guy who had bought his girlfriend a round the world trip and then got dumped?  So he searched for someone with the same name to travel with him?  A year later, Elizabeth Gallagher has no regrets about taking that trip
  • The Deal Mommy is always a good read – here’s don’t make this rental car mistake AKA the time I nearly killed my kid
  • I recently was checking out the (fairly new) site / app called CultureTrip.  They have content in 11 different “culture” categories (food/drink, literature, music, books, etc) across several different cities in the world.  I checked out my hometown of Cincinnati (a nice middle of the road city) and they had 32 articles so their breadth seems pretty solid.  Has anybody used them before?  Might be worth checking out
