Germany holds the crown as the best party center in Europe, catering to everyone from the flashpacker traveler to the backpacker and through-hiker. If you’ve got the energy to hang with the party-harders, maybe it’s time to check in to Germany. If not, better start training. Beer gardens, rich history, and the best nightclubs on the continent are what take the cake for your next trip. If you’re looking to take advantage of the hostel scene, meet new people from around the world, and have access to the...

With the Fall rapidly approaching, that sweet California weather is starting to look mighty tempting - actually it is pretty tempting year round - so if you are looking to get a little California sunkissed, it maybe time head out West. However, if you are looking to make your trip/getaway/romantic excursion, a little bit more rememberable, skip the overpriced hotels and check out some of these incredible and unique Airbnbs in California. If you haven't stayed in an Airbnb before, it is wondrous way to not only save money...

Despite the stereotype - which typically casts Americans as the loud, braggadocios, stay-at-home and eat spare ribs while watching reality tv sort, we are an adventurous bunch (that also happen to eat spare ribs). From breaking out and conquering the Western frontier in the days of Lewis and Clark, to journeys to the moon (if you believe in that kind of thing), to late-night divey diners with curly cheese fries; - there is no frontier we won't explore. While it is true that our passport wielding numbers are...

There are a lot of renowned travel destinations within the U.S. Big cities like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami bring tourists to all different parts of the country; the Pacific Northwest and American Southwest attract nature lovers; and beautiful beaches in several coastal states (not to mention Hawaii!) are always popular draws. But there are also pockets of the country that probably don’t get the attention they deserve from travelers, whether within the U.S. or from abroad. One such area is the state of Virginia, which we...

The gem of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle, is waiting for you. Home to big company giants like Amazon and Starbucks, Seattle is becoming an increasingly popular city to live in and to visit. Yes, it may rain for much of the winter but the summers are beautiful, there’s no humidity and you’ll discover an endless amount of Seattle craft breweries and wineries where you can wet your whistle. As with any major city in the US, hotels in Seattle can be on the expensive side, so Airbnb is...

It is no secret that Barcelona is one of the hot spots of Europe. From surreal Gaudi architecture that looks like a out of dream to tantalizing world famous cuisine to endless beaches filled with the scantily clad, Barcelona is a force to be reckoned with and has earned its reputation. Being a hotspot, especially in the last two decades, BCN does have more than its fair share of the annoying large tour groups with the goofy tour leader waving an umbrella to follow – however, it still...

While my hostel partying days may be over since I now get raging hangovers I've hit my 30s, I do reminisce on my backpacking days travelling around the USA without a car, praying not to end up in the dead in a gutter. Back then all I needed was a super cheap place on Hostelworld where I could rest my head and meet other 20p-something travellers. It didn't matter what the room looked like - as long as there was an endless flow of booze, fun and unforeseeable consequences,...

This post is written by Victoria Brewood of Pommie Travels. I'm from Manchester in the UK, but somehow always grew up with a desire to live in the US. I'm not sure what gave me this crisis of national identity, but it could be all those American movies and episodes of The OC I watched growing up. You see, the US is the centre of the movie industry, and so throughout the world, we're all very familiar with American culture. Anyway, over the years I've therefore spent a lot...

When it comes to Mexico, I am deeply, over the heels, unapologetically in love. From the turquoise waters of the Yucatan to the charming colonial pueblos to vast and scattered remnants of ancient, mysterious civilizations; Mexico has it all. I could be wrong, by my gut feeling, ever since I was a young pup, was that Americans really underestimated its Southern neighbor. When most Americans think of Mexico their thoughts jump to tacky cruises or similarly ports of call that the aforementioned booze/food fest cruises stop off at....

The French Riviera - also known as the Cote d'Azur - is one of those ritzy and glitzy destinations that can easily burn a hole in your pocket. However, even if you're not a ballin' celeb, it's still possible to travel the French Riviera on a budget too - you just have to be a bit more savvy. Luckily the public transportation system here is fantastic, with buses and trains that will allow you to hop from place to place. As you travel along the coastline you'll discover...
