I am about to get on the plane. My bags are packed and my passport is ready, but am I ready? “Jet lag”, ladies and gentleman, is a dish served as wholly in first class as it is in coach. However, here are a few quick tips to beat jet lag before it beats you!
Who doesn’t love the sweet, juicy flesh of swine? Well, a lot of people. Entire religions, in fact. But from where we’re standing the pig has fans worldwide - and for good reason. The pork chop recipes seem endless. Bacon alone is worth breaking any ancient sacrament, if you ask us. Not to mention pork chops, pork roast, pulled pork sandwiches, pork belly, pork chop recipe for your slow cooker, Chichurrones and, for the brave and adventurous, pickled pig’s feet. But did you know that pork has… a dark side?
Along the banks of the Douro River right by the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, Porto is a popular tourist attraction. With its cobbled streets and castles as well as cathedrals and synagogues, you will see a variety of architectural beauty. And with the warm climate, outdoor activities are also popular.
When you think of Las Vegas, the mind conjures up images not only of the casinos, skyscrapers and entertainment venues, but also wide expanses of Nevada desert and red-rock peaks silhouetted against the setting sun. In other words, it feels a bit like summer in the mind’s eye. Yet this destination continues to buzz even as winter falls. In fact, it thrives, given that many of the fun activities are based indoors –– and it's still pleasant outside anyway.
The latest incident involving a physical altercation between a passenger and flight attendant has caused the arrival of a critical tipping point. The penalties must get stronger and drastic steps need to be taken by the airlines, the airports and the federal government to keep flight crews and the fellow passengers safe.

Planning your next getaway and looking to learn more about the two carriers Frontier vs. Allegiant...then this is the article for you! ? Today, I am comparing and discussing cheap flights on both. Both of these airlines are considered “low cost carriers” and fly to and from major leisure destinations without having to connect through a hub city which is sometimes referred to as “point to point” flying.
I have flown on both airlines over the years and have never had an issue with either of them. My most recent trip was on Allegiant Airlines from NYC to The Great Smoky Mountains. But here are points to consider.

What was once known as the “honeymoon capital of the world” has evolved into a full on family destination. We’re talking about visiting the Pocono Mountains! If you’ve never been, it’s a quick drive from New York City, Philadelphia, D.C. and other bigger cities on the East Coast. Many go there as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. In the Poconos, you’ll be greeted by mountains and valleys, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, hiking trails, and wildlife. When you dig a little deeper, you’ll start to learn of the area’s rich history in railroads, coal, and agriculture. For families, it can be a fun and enriching experience for all ages.
I am on a mission to get you traveling more often. As the host of the Emmy award- winning, nationally syndicated television television for PBS and the Create channel, "Beyond Your Backyard," I travel (on average) 25 weeks per year. I am very grateful for the opportunity to meet cool people, experience new places, eat delicious food and work with the best production crew in the world. Hopefully, through this blog, you will join me on my travels and be reminded just how exciting it is to be alive!
