Tinged with the zestiness of paprika and steeped in a history of being ruled by Romans, Magyar kings, Turks, Nazis, Communists and blessed with a will to be free, Budapest is a city that lingers long in her visitors’ memories.

If you are traveling in the middle of Central Europe, adding the city to an itinerary is a must.

Having a duffel bag makes taking the bus from Vienna or train from Prague easy.

The Eagle Creek ES3 ORV Trunk 25 Wheeled Duffel is terrific for tackling both paved and cobbled streets.

Budapest is actually two cities – Buda and Pest. Separated by the famed Danube River, the two sections each have a distinctive flavor and flair. Continue Reading »

The sirens of the open road are calling.

Respond enthusiastically with a luggage set, like the Samsonite Austonia 3-Piece Spinner, in the trunk of your car.  Each piece is easy to maneuver in/out and has plenty of packing space for two weeks’ worth of wardrobe.  Bring everything from pedal pushers to parkas.

OBX means one thing to beach lovers – the Outer Banks.

Where Native Americans, English settlers and notorious pirates once trod, beachcombers’ flip-flops now walk.

Speaking of flip-flips, plenty can be packed in a duffel bag like the Sherpani Jetta Duffel Bag, along with other beach vacation necessities.

The Outer Banks’ lighthouses lining the barrier islands off the North Carolina coastline are among its most enduring images.

Come travel with us as we tour these illuminating attractions.

Built the farthest north, the Currituck Beach Light Station in Corolla was constructed in 1875.  Unlike other lighthouses down south with their black and white patterns, this still active facility was constructed of red bricks.  Open from Easter to Thanksgiving weekend, this lighthouse will reward you with an outstanding view after a hike up 214 steps.
