What was I doing at an Amusement Park?
Legendary motion-sickness, a well-deserved reputation as a chicken – what on earth was I doing at a theme park? And how is it possible that I enjoyed it?
This summer, I was part of a TBEX press trip with Central Counties Tourism that included a stop at Canada’s Wonderland, one of the premier amusement parks in North America. They boast incredible roller coasters and amazing rides – none of which I had the least intention of going on. I’ve neither the stomach nor the nerves for such wild times – but I still had a ton of fun! Read on to find out what I loved.
Updated in 2021! Riding a Segway should be easy, right? This is what it was like to try riding one for the first time during a Toronto Segway Tour.
For a girl best known for her love of thrill-seeking, extreme adventure activities such as… book club – or art tours – or writing in a café… it’s hard to find an activity wild enough to really get Vanessa’s adrenalin pumping!

Airports, travel, and delays go hand-in-hand. Here's how top travel bloggers pass the time.
For better or for worse, being stuck in an airport is an inevitable part of most vacations. Whether you have arrived several hours early for an important international flight, have a lot of time to kill between connections, or – worst of all – are stuck because of a delay, chances are you’ll lose anywhere from a few hours to a few days of your vacation staring at an arrival board, eating stale pretzels, and tapping your toes.
Here are some suggestions from top travel bloggers on how to make the most of that wasted time and get the best value for your vacation time.
Guest post! Need first time business travel tips? Ryan shows you how it's done!
I travel from time to time for business, whether to do work in the field or attend meetings and conferences. No two business trips are ever the same, but there are definitely similarities for all of them, which can make planning and traveling a bit easier.

Traveling for business is more work than it is vacation (whether we want it to be or not!) and as such, you need to be prepared when you hit the road so that you make sure you arrive as prepared as possible to hit the ground running when you arrive.
Updated 2022. I'm searching for the perfect, lightweight, stuffable day pack. Would The North Face Verto 26 work?
As I slowly move away from the backpackers’ lifestyle and explore more grown up travel, I find myself yearning for some of my old gear. It might have been beaten up, scuffed and stained, but it was comfortable and it worked! One item that’s been hard to give up is my daypack. I’ve mostly moved to bags and satchels, but there are still times when a small backpack is best, such as hiking and transporting snorkel gear to the beach. My old daypack (originally a zip-off from a main pack), was about 15L in size and, while comfortable, was just a tad too small and the design made it difficult to squish up. Enter the North Face Verto 26 from the Summit Series.
