Your Guide to Dining Out in Paris

Entering into a restaurant in Paris can be a formidable experience for uninitiated travelers. Not only do they have to contend with trying to make their wishes understood by a waiter who may or may not speak their language, but they must learn quickly how to adapt to local dining customs.

The Paris dining scene can be bewildering for those first time travelers who have no idea where to start, though if you’re confused about the difference between a bistrot and a brasserie, or if you feel intimidated by the prospect of going into any French restaurant and ordering a meal, then you’ve come to the right place!

10 Tips For Traveling With One Backpack

Traveling with one backpack is a skill to be learned and perfected. Even the most seasoned travelers fight the urge to over pack, and most will likely admit to throwing extra items into their bag last minute. Though practice makes perfect, and over time I’ve managed to hone my packing skills to the point where everything fits into one backpack whether it be for 2 days or 2 months.

There is something liberating and exciting about being able to live out of just one piece of luggage.

You’re less likely to travel off the beaten path with all that weight, and it’s difficult to find your things when and as you need.

So if your resolution for the new year is to travel lighter and pack less, consider the following rules.

The one thing you might not see when visiting Denali is…Denali? Wait, what? You mean the primary attraction for which the park is named; the mountain that I’m traveling for hours to see; you’re telling me I might not see it? Regrettably, yes. That’s precisely what we’re saying.

According to the park’s rangers, only about one third of all visitors actually get to feast their eyes on the tallest mountain in North America due to the nearly constant cloud cover.

The Denali experience might come down to a matter of luck, however if you find yourself one of the lucky 33%, you will find that the views are well worth the gamble.
