Will Saunders

I'm an avid traveler for both domestic and international venues. I've learned a lot of things, some of them the hard way, that taught me valuable lessons. So, I am passing that knowledge on to others to help make their trip more enjoyable and stress-free. I also will share what I think are great venues, stores, restaurants, or other things that I enjoyed that I think others would enjoy as well. Knowledge is power, transformational. Let us share with each other.

    I read a lot of travel-related articles, both online and in hardcopy format. There is an increase in the number of organizations that are renting apartments and condominiums for its traveling employees.

  • Scams to Watch Out for When Traveling

    I have been thinking about planning a trip to South America next fall, so I talked to a travel agent to get some ideas. He began telling me about some common ways crooks have been ripping off unsuspecting tourists. These scams have been seen in many places all around...

    Busboys and Poets: Rendez-vous Extraordinairé

    A fabulous DC staple is the restaurant, lounge, and community arts venue Busboys and Poets. I first went there in 2006, about a year or so after it opened, and I was immediately hooked. The first location to open is what I call its signature location at the corner...
  • Here Comes Nobu

  • Losing Your ID While Traveling

    What a headache. You’re far from home, having a good time, then wham! Some hooligan runs up from behind, bumps into you, and before you realize it, he’s long gone and so is your wallet. He picked your pocket and he’s nowhere in sight. This happened to me, so...
  • Last Minute Traveling

    The average travelers plan their leisure trips several weeks, sometimes months in advance. I know I do. I already have my plane ticket and hotel reservation for my Virgin Islands trip in December, four months away. Somehow we’ve been brainwashed into thinking that the only way to get the...
