Did You Know? Layover Programs

Tourism is a huge industry throughout the world and countries across the world want people to come into their country to experience their culture and of course, spend their money. With this being said, there are airlines that are being used to entice travelers to choose their country as a possible country to visit by offering great layover programs. A layover program is essentially giving you the ability to pick an ultimate destination but mid travel you will have a layover in a different country for 24 hours or longer. This idea is to give you the opportunity to tour the country and then fly to your destination.

If you asked me years ago would I be interested in paying money to sleep in a room with strangers in bunk-beds, I would have said “Hell No”. Maybe it’s the American in me that immediately is suspicious of strangers especially people in a different country. Maybe it’s the constant reminder from people of the horror movie “Hostel”. Either way, my feelings about Hostels has changed significantly to the point where I prefer to stay in a Hostel. For those of you who have never stayed in a Hostel, here are some Pros and Cons (Hostel Recommendations will be at the Bottom).

Know Thy Traveler – Octavian Alexandru Pitigoi

Octavian Alexandru Pitigoi is an video editor that I met online recently. His videos are beautiful, showing you a different look of the city and the people that live there. It feels like a natural look rather than a superficial view of a city that most people capture. I’m honored to have him featured in the Know Thy Traveler series.

Language learning enhanced my travel experience and it can for you

Humbling experiences rarely happen in a persons life but when you experience it, it can have a great affect. One of those experiences for me has been learning a new language, more specifically, learning German. I believe most people I run into would say “I wish I knew a second language” but it’s difficult to make that next step into actually doing it. I’ve realized that learning a new language is like losing weight…everyone wants to do it and it’s very challenging but when you make progress it’s extremely rewarding. Learning a language is more than just another form of communication and I learned this first hand.

Why Berlin should be on your shortlist

You ever have that feeling of deja vu? I swear I have it every time I tell a friend that I’m going to Berlin and their response is inevitably “Again?”…yes AGAIN. I never have a chance to really explain in detail why I love Berlin and why I keep going back to this wonderful city. First let me state that I’m biased to Germany in general. I took an interest in the German language which led for me to meet native German speakers and to eventually go to Germany. Even with me being biased, I still have great reasons why Berlin should be somewhere on your shortlist if you’re planning to go to Europe.
