 Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and all over the world love will bring magic in the air for 24 sweet hours of sharing feelings, presents and tons of chocolate. Everybody is trying to surprise their better halves, their soul-mates to be, with luxury hotels, remote and intimate cabins, and high end restaurants and give the celebration a unique romantic twist. If the vast majority wants a romantic spot, an intimate place or a grand gesture such as beds of roses, diamonds, or a candlelight gourmet dinner, there are some that celebrate love with a touch of thrill and the macabre.

For these select few, we have discovered the spot-on Valentine’s Day activity. Cutting Edge Haunted House is preparing a special approach for Valentine’s Day, which they refer to as “twisted romantic alternative” to common celebrations for the day. Those visiting the haunted house from Dallas, Forth Worth on this special day will have a tour of the house lit only by candles. Read more…

If you’re traveling to the Big Apple for the first time, no doubt there are things you want to do and see. The city can be overwhelming for those not used the crowds of the big city. Unless you are staying for a month or two, there’s a good chance you won’t have time to see all that’s offered in NYC. Creating an itinerary can help you stay on track and ensure you see the things that are the most important to you. Here are five things you should include on your list:

1. Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty is an American icon and must be seen at least once in a person’s lifetime. While you can pay to go to Ellis Island, you can also see it just as well from the Staten Island Ferry for free. Before you make up your mind whether you will spend the money to travel to the island, know this: the statue has been closed to the public since 9/11. Read more…

No matter what your attraction to the UK it is a place that should be on every traveller’s to do list. Spending a week with a London car hire will provide plenty of time to see many of the tourist sites because England is so delightfully small.

Some trips are decided on the spot, or nearly so, with a few days to prepare and dream of what you’ll see and do. This particular city getaway to Prague was the exact opposite. The planning started back in June and by the end of the month the reservations were already made. Which pretty much gave anything and everything that could change a chance to happen.

So yesterday at 11 am, I embarked on a trip that turned out to be nothing I had dreamed of or planned for. Nevertheless, as those of us who love drinking lemonade may attest, I knew getting lemons is not the worst case scenario. So I opened my heart to the possibility of having fun even if nothing would be as I wanted it to.

After long hours driving from Ploiesti to Sibiu and then to Cluj-Napoca, we met up with the rest of the group coming from Iasi and we all started our journey to Prague. It took hours of driving and lots of gas station pit stops to get there, but it was still something fun to try… once! I much prefer the comfort of my own car, even if I spend most of the journey driving..

What I am extremely thankful for, in no particular order: Read more…
