A Guide to: Maui, Hawaii
by Eric for kristraveler.com
Kaanapali beach is always our home when we visit Maui - it is on one of the nicest beaches on Maui and some of the best snorkeling and diving on the island is right at the doorstep of the hotels.
Some of the properties have a free shuttle which has [...]
As you will read in many guidebooks, train tickets are only sold at rail stations, and typically 10 days before the day of departure.

As I plan for my upcoming trip to China, I’m gathering some information on places to go (and how to get there) and tips that can help keep me out of trouble, but also add some uniqueness to the trip beyond the major Shanghai-Beijing touristic itinerary.
I had heard that Xitang could be an interesting water [...]
This is not the first post about Hawaii, as it is one of our favorite destinations. Though what makes this a special post is that it is authored by one of our readers who’s been living in Oahu for many years and knows Hawaii like the palm of his hand. I can personally say he [...]

Yesterday I was making a short list of places you cannot miss in NYC and I had completely forgotten about this fantastic restaurant! How could I have forgotten about it?! Though I still have such great memories of this place and thank goodness I remembered about it today (hahaha)… Blue Ribbon Bakery offers one of the tastiest [...]
Going to New York in the near future? Then you have to check this website: NewYorkology
Sure, there are many (and many!) books and online guides to New York, but few are as fun or up-to-date with everything that’s going on in the city as NewYorkology is.
I’ve been following their tweets for a couple of months [...]
I’ve used Expert Flyer’s service before, and while I’m still not convinced it was worth my $9.99 a month for finding upgradeable seats - as with other free tools such as SeatCounter (which I talk about in this post) I can track the flights I need myself – I found it useful for other features, such [...]
