How to Get Free Uber Airport Rides This Holiday Season

airplane-flight-travel

This holiday season through New Year’s Eve, you can get two free rides from the airport thanks to Uber and American Express!

While on my way back north from Miami today, I got an email from Uber about its new holiday promotion that grants users with an American Express credit card two free rides from various airports in the U.S. up to $65 each. I tried it out today, and it covered the entire cost of my trip from LGA to Grand Central. In case you didn’t get this email (looks like sent out to those in the NYC area, Chicago, Houston, Boston and DC), find out below how it works:

Being Wired for Perfect Streaming

One of the things I really miss when I’m traveling is my home’s Internet speed. It’s kind of sad, but true and honest since we live in such a connected time. A fast internet connection is important for work and leisure – in particular, streaming content on various devices. Whether it’s a streaming service used to re-watch favorite shows and movies or getting lost in the pages of YouTube, we are always watching something (or planning on it later). An excellent way to stay wired is with Frontier. Read the rest of this entry

Once Upon a Time at Manchester Pride 2016: PHOTOS

After years of traveling to the England, I’ve finally got the chance to explore a city beyond London, and I decided to make it Manchester for its annual Pride weekend (known as The Big Weekend – and boy was it a big one!). Unsure what to expect when I arrived, I boarded my train from London after spending a week there (more to come on that), and arrived into the Manchester Piccadilly station. I followed the gaggle of gays that were on my two-hour train ride to make sure I was headed out the right direction, and my instinct proved me right. I was literally welcomed by a sea of rainbows flags at the station and in the city center.

A short walk down from the station (and really close to the Holiday Inn Manchester City Centre), was one of the entrances to the four-day Pride festival at the famous Canal Street (the heart of the gay village in the city). The Village is both party central for the festival weekend (and year-round for the community). Hundreds of the LGBT community were outside celebrating almost nonstop all weekend long. Check out photos from the festival below, as well as the parade (which had 150 participating in the parade and thousands of spectators):

Check out the adventure below, plus see how you can layer for crisp summer mornings or destinations such as Amsterdam that can have cool air in the summer:
