Let’s be realistic, who doesn’t travel without their cellphone these days? They offer so much convenience that it would be silly not to travel with it. The problem is, when using your mobile abroad, roaming charges can add up to some ridiculous amounts if you’re not paying attention. Fortunately for all of us there’s many…

The skyline of Chicago

I recently returned from Chicago, and what a great city. Although the city is the third largest in the United States with a population pushing 3 million, never did I feel like it was a “busy” city.

It all started with Dr. Jones. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade that is. I know this sounds ridiculous but never would I have imagined that the final resting place of the Holy Grail was an actual place. Let’s be realistic most people only visit Jordan for Petra, but when you start to research the country…

Intrepid Travel Canada

A couple years back my wife and I travelled to Egypt and Jordan since it was always a dream to see the Pyramids of Giza and Petra, Jordan. Although we’re avid travellers, we knew using an adventure tourism company would be ideal since the ongoing Middle East uprising was still very real. After doing my research I…
