Travel Folly to Travel Glory

Travel Folly to Travel Glory

OK, time for a guilty pleasure confession. You know, how we all have these silly things in life that we enjoy, even though they might be considered lame or embarrassing by our peers, parents, or children? Like watching reality TV or reading trashy romance novels? Well, European Vacation was one of those movies that fits in that category for me. I can watch it over and over. Should National Lampoon have any real travel advice to offer? Should it be an inspiration for travel? I don’t know, but anything that gets us off our sofa and onto the computer or into the books planning the next vacation can’t be all bad. And whether we like it or not, Hollywood, Bollywood, …

Passports Or Pass With Tom And Jasmin

On this episode of Passports or Pass on Weekend Travel Inspiration, we spotlight a traveling couple who live in Munich. Tom came to Europe to study, and soon after his arrival he met Jasmin. It must have been fate. When young Germans go off to university, there are no dormitories so they look for other students to share an apartment with, and Jasmin just happened to be one of Tom’s new flatmates.

Passports or Pass With Mary And Alicia

Alicia and Mary – Will You Pass the Travel Companion Test? In this episode of Passports or Pass, on our Weekend Travel Inspiration, we mix it up a little. Instead of having a couple, we are interviewing Mary and Alicia, two moms that travel together with their families.  Both Mary and Alicia are married to Army men, and they met before they started having children, beginning their travels with weekend ski trips in Colorado. As luck would have it, both ended up here living in Germany, and they began traveling around Europe together. They are dedicated travelers who firmly believe that traveling doesn’t stop when you have kids.

Rendezvous With Rovers – Tamason From Travelling Book Junkie

Rendezvous with Tamason.

Welcome back to our inspiring interview series, Rendezvous with Rovers on Weekend Travel Inspiration, where we continually get inspired by these intrepid travelers and travel bloggers. This week we’re introducing you to Tamason of Travelling Book Junkie. Tell us a little about yourself.  Originally from the UK we always knew that travel would be a major part of our lives. When we first met 20 years ago Paul was in the Armed Forces and I was studying to become a Secondary School Teacher but realistically I think even then, we both felt that we wanted to do something different. Society has always dictated that we should gain a good education, develop a strong career and then purchase a house, have …
