There's a place that I'm not entirely convinced is real because it sounds too good to be true.
Ever dream of packing up the car and hitting the open road with some friends?
Here's the thing about traveling: you either have time, but no money or you have money, but no time.
Traveling isn't always affordable for everyone, though. But the good news is that there are a lot of great deals out there, and the awesome website GetGoing has a lot of them.
Remembering to pack all the essentials and ditch the unnecessary items is the most important part of packing light, so we've included some tips on what you definitely want to toss in your bag. As a bonus to get you started, we've found 6 adorable bags that'll fit everything you need for a mini weekend getaway.
It’s August. The days of sleeping in and sleeping out are waning as move-in day is approaching far too fast. Savor the summer. Savor the in-between season between class schedules.
Is it me or is the cost of traveling absolutely insane these days? I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t have $600 dollars to pay for a flight and then an extra $150 per night for a hotel. And while we can definitely ask our parents, with that comes stipulations and a list of questions.
Plug in two locations (or more - the site lets you add up to four), and Rendezview will come back with a list of places that are halfway between them.
Once you decide where you want to go, head over to Tingo to book your hotel.

I've found that an easy way to satisfy the travel bug is to explore new places in my city! I love visiting new restaurants, museums, nature preserves and other local tourist attractions I might not normally visit since I live there. And one great resource to help me find cool places to explore is Trazzler.
While I love to travel, the one thing that I don't love about it is planning the flights. Trying to find the perfect flight on the date and times you want, without too many layovers, at the lowest price possible amidst the sea of flight options out there is enough to drive a person crazy. But with Hipmunk, booking flights is now a whole lot less stressful.
In one week, I spent half a day in Jamaica (bought Roasted Ground coffee and coconut rum candies), I explored nearly every edge of New York City (found a killer pizza parlor, took mock pictures at Tiffany's and ate cookies from Bouchon Bakery) and I sunbathed next to a clear pool in Florida while sending Twit-Pics of the palm tree-clad view.

The Huffington Post recently published a list of 10 places every child must visit. On the list: The Smithsonian, Yellowstone and Ellis Island. I remember when I was a kid and my parents somehow found it in their souls to take to all of those places. We were a big traveling family and my parents wanted me to see (and learn about) everything.
Would You Rather get a grant for $100,000 to help start the business of your choosing OR have $50,000 to use to travel the world for as long as it lasted you? Things to Consider: Being your own boss, changing the world, seeing the world...for free.
Oh air travel, how I despise thee. All flight delays/massive airport navigation/stinky seatmates aside though, I am actually very (very) excited to be flying into DC tomorrow. I’ve never been, and I’m so pumped to explore our nation’s great capital.
I did it! I graduated. Although the moment of hearing my name, walking across the stage, receiving my diploma, and turning my tassel went by incredibly fast, the road to Commencement has been an unforgettable eye-opening four-year journey.
Let’s face it: we all make stupid decisions. Like choosing a fifth over a review session, or bringing that guy home…who stole our iPod in the morning. That’s part of college life... and a big part of what makes it so memorable. But there are some choices that have longer lasting repercussions; things we do now that will haunt us later.
Spring Break is just around the corner, and it has college students everywhere are dreaming of a week free from classes, preferably spent partying and relaxing on a beach somewhere warm. However, that's not always a reality on a college student's budget, and many students resort to spending their week off from school at home--or worse, stuck in the abandoned dorms--while everyone else is having fun.
am your future (a fabulous, successful, happy, sexy, awesome, etc. girl) and I know what is to come. Allow me to guide you in your choices - based on all I have seen in my 5 years (gasp!) since graduating - to ensure you make the right choices and don't end up with the same regrets I have.
Getting dressed in the morning is always such a hassle: finding an outfit among the array of shirts, pants, skirts, sweaters, shoes, and belts in your closet that's both stylish and weather-appropriate is both stressful and time-consuming. Usually, I spend about 10 minutes watching the weather channel with my closet doors open, hoping for inspiration, only to just throw on another tee-cardigan-jeans combination.

While many of us were opening presents and eating mom's homemade breakfast in our Christmas pajamas on December 25th, there were some people out there who were just not feelin' the Christmas spirit. Like, I don't know, the man who attempted to blow up a Northwest flight from Amsterdam to Detroit?

The time has come once again to start picking classes for spring semester (really? didn't we just do this?) and my mind turns to places that won't be covered in grey slush come January. Places with warm, sunny vistas and boys with sexy accents. In other words, places abroad.
No matter how much we all love college, I know that everyone has that one thing they'd like to do-over. Being that we're all heading back to campus in a few weeks (Oh wait, not me. Sigh.), I asked the CollegeCandy writers to share their do-over wish lists so no one else has to make the same mistakes we did.
Let's look at the facts - our economy is bad, everyone is cutting back, no one has money (maybe that's just me), and even the weather is bad. If there was ever a time that vacations were needed, it's now. Whatever happened to the glory days of the traditional random college backpacking trip or the "I need to find myself" adventure to who-knows-where? Well, go find yourself! Actually, I already found you - you're in Japan.
For those of you who spend their flights on iPods, reading, or trying desperately to occupy themselves while stuck in a metal tube for a few hours with a hundred strangers, there are a some rules you should observe. So, sit back, relax, and listen up. Here comes the airplane etiquette:
Ahhh, summer. The sweet, glorious days of summer. Days spent lounging by the pool, building sandcastles at the beach, or lying in bed all day watching old episodes of The OC on Soap Net. School's finally out, and since the last long vacation you had was winter break, you're ready for some of mom's home cooking and not getting up from your bed. Ever.
There are a few normal things to do after you graduate: 1. Get a job. 2. Go to grad school. 3. Live at home and freak out about the future.
Overall, this is sad, but in a couple of weeks I'll be getting nearly a G in tax returns. Yeah, that's a crapload of money. But when I look back at all the hours I worked in 2008, it also makes me realize... I made jack sh*t.
