For the second time in 10 months, I vacationed to a hot, sunny, gorgeous place only to return to the dead of winter, pasty pale. My, how times have changed. When it comes down to it, you can buy 'tan in a can' or get a spray tan any time, but you can't buy time with your family.

Why Travelling is Not Vacationing

Vacationing, for me, is about the destination. It's a place you go, where you can put your feet up for a few days or weeks. Travelling, on the other hand, is about the journey. It often means setting off without a plan and the ability to enjoy the unexpected - like going three weeks without washing your clothes. When you decide to travel, you pack up your life and take it on the road with you.

These days, brass enthusiasts bypass the French Quarter and head to the bars along Frenchman Street, where some of the city's best bands compete for the most coveted time slots.

Cruising is a very popular trend and it's getting more competitive within the industry all the time, especially in the mass-market area of giant ships. Therefore, empty cabins mean reduced revenue, and that's not something to make cruise operators smile; maximizing the dollar, pound, euro, or whatever currency you have, is their priority.
