0 Tips to travel in USA

The travel opportunities here are endless as you can go up to the north and see glaciers in Alaska, catch some surf in Hawaii, party in Las Vegas, see the redwoods of California, or head east to see some of the biggest metropolis' in North America.  What I've always envied about the United States is just how beautiful their landscape is coast to coast.  As a land of opportunity, there really is so much to see, do, eat, and experience.

Personally, the best way to see the country is to rent a car and drive from coast to coast. That's the only true way to see and truly appreciate what the USA is all about.

0 HOW TO BECOME A TOUR GUIDE

Tour guide, escorted tour and land tour positions can usually be grouped into the same general category of employment. These jobs for the most part are similar and these job titles are often used interchangeably. This is especially true with the job classifications land tour and escorted tour. The job title Tour Guide can also encompass a broader range of potential jobs including city tours, museum tours, building tours, etc. For the most part, CruiseJobFinder focuses on the longer term tours that generally last for at least 24 hours and some last as long as three or four weeks.

We also cover the area of adventure travel jobs. As the name implies, these jobs are with companies that offer adventure tour trips. These trips can range from biking through the wine country of France, to white water rafting in Costa Rica. If you enjoy these types of outdoor activities, one of these jobs could truly be your dream job.

0 25 Important Travel Safety Tips Everyone Should Know

Nothing ruins an adventure quicker than getting scammed or robbed!
One time in Panama, some women distracted me while stealing a laptop from my backpack. I figured it was gone forever, until incredibly, this happened 3 months later. I got lucky.
In Mexico, a pickpocket grabbed my iPhone as I was walking. I managed to get that back too, chasing the thief down the road screaming like a maniac and brandishing a bottle of tequila!

You don’t even need to travel internationally to have bad stuff happen. In Miami, my camera was stolen from the beach when I wasn’t paying attention.

0 Everything you need to know about tipping in the USA

Ah, we've all been there: to tip or not to tip? And trust us when we say that there are few social customs in the USA more confusing than tipping. I once was in a bar in San Francisco clutching confused onto my five-dollar bill much to the annoyance of a bartender who had merely got a bottle of beer out of a fridge for me. After walking away disgruntled, it wouldn't be until the next round of drinks that he told me that tips were expected, even if the only effort involved was him cracking a bottle open.



I soon learnt that for many Americans, tipping is a normal custom, like adding VAT at the till. It was actually once so hated that it was illegal in six states, but it seems that Americans now love it more than ever. So to help you out a bit, here is a handy guide to why you should tip, where to do it, and how much.

0 40 Best Travel Tips

We travelled for 10 years before we turned our travels into a career. It was a valuable time for us because we spent 10 years experiencing travel for the pure love of it.
That decade helped us to really appreciate the quiet moments and learn how to travel independently before making a career out of travel.
We then travelled full time for nine years and learned a lot while seeing the world.
