    How Bad Is Israel as a Travel Destination?

    by  • 2/22/2011 • travel • 0 Comments

    Mom asked for an itinerary for the Israel trip, and asked if it was a safe time to visit the area. Thought I’d share my response in case anyone else has any concerns about our heading into a war zone. I’ve never been to the Middle East at all, so I’m nervous, but more about […]

    I’ve been turning up direct flights from Toronto to Atlanta for about $750 per person, all taxes included. Flights that have a stop in Newark or Chicago drop a bit, settling in around $550 return per person. I had investigated the possibility of buying the ~US$550 Amtrak US pass and taking the train the whole […]

    Toronto hotel booked

    I was looking at lastminutetravel.com and priceline.com and all the other cut-rate sites to find the cheapest place possible so that we could have a room for the weekend while we drive around looking for an apartment. Hopefully we’ll find a place with immediate availability so that we can sleep THERE on the night of […]
