Weddings / Honeymoons

When it comes to remote honeymoon destinations for couples who are striving to get away from the chaos of the wedding, it is difficult to get further away than the island nation of Madagascar. The Caribbean islands and Mexico have been touted as reasonably prices and relatively close honeymoon destinations in the past, but the trend of more unique getaways is rising, and Madagascar fits the profile of a romantic stroll certainly off the beaten path.

 

The same endless miles of white-sand beaches that abound in the Caribbean also can be found on the island off the southeastern coast of Africa. The difference between the two regions is the amount of privacy and untouched beauty couples will experience in Madagascar. Rather than sharing the romantic trip with other couples while basking in the sun and sipping cocktails, Madagascar provides an option to step away from the rest of the world and truly de-stress post nuptials.

 

Fishing and diving during the day lead to enchanting sunsets and beach bonfires at night. Luxurious lodges evoke a romantic setting miles away from the stressors of civilization. Mingle with lemurs, bathe under hidden waterfalls and sample the local cuisine as you celebrate your new union in a peaceful and natural environment.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.
