Guest Post: Gill Murray’s Food Photography Hacks for Instagram Worthy Images with Your Smartphone

How to Stay Healthy & Happy While Travelling

Travelling is wonderful. But if you get sick in any way while there or right after you get back, not so fun. Some of this can be attributed to jet lag and recycled air on the plane. But over the years I've realized that the biggest reason much of the above happens is that while …

Six Museums You Must Visit in Seattle and a Budget Friendly Way to Visit Them

We were recently in Seattle, and coincidentally, we were there for the city's Museum Month. What's special about that?
