Your Travel Horoscope: The Astrology Trip Planner

Just as astrology can identify, say, business and romantic opportunities or challenges, those celestial bodies slinking about the stars can help pinpoint optimal times and places for travel. Also, destinations have their own astro-charts, which interact with yours -- meaning astrology can serve as a kind of spiritual travel agent. It can tell you, for example, about places likely to be good or not-so-good matches for your temperament, personality, and current… Continue

Shai Hills in Ghana

I had a couple of free days in Accra recently while winding up my month in Ghana. I decided to visit the Shai Hills Resource Reserve for a change of pace. By tro-tro to Ashaiman and then another one got me to the Reserve in less than 2 hours, a distance of 33 miles. I had booked a room at the Shai Hills Resort, supposedly 300 m. down the road from the main entrance. Actually, it's more nearly 1 mile, which I walked instead of waiting for another tro-tro. Hot!

There are extensive jungley… Continue

1. Book early. The sooner you can decide on your holiday travel plans, the better. If you wait too long, you run the risk of less availability and higher rates. The Air Transport Association reports Thanksgiving, and the winter… Continue

Wiring Payment to Foreign Travel Vendors: It Saves, But Is It Safe?

Back in the day, you'd stroll into a travel agency, get face-to-face advice, and leave with an armful of color brochures and a paper ticket. Then the Internet came along, but for a long time consumers were slow to warm up to paying online with a credit card. That's mostly history now: Most will happily divulge those 16 digits in return for the savings that online competition and the elimination of the travel agent middleman have brought about.

All well and good, for the… Continue
