Chase Sapphire Reserve Card and Why You Need to Get It

The Best Travel Credit Card and Why it is So Good

Chase Sapphire Reserve Card for TravlersThe Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card is a great deal.  A lot of websites will tell you why, but they are probably receiving a commission for telling you so.  The Traveling Professor receives NO compensation for telling you why this is such a great travel card and why everyone should have it.  The Professor owns less than 5 credit cards and the Chase Sapphire Reserve is one of them and he will tell you why this card, over any other, should be in every traveler's wallet.

Two Tips for Comfortable and Inexpensive Air Travel

Fly Comfortably and Inexpensively to Europe

premium economy flightsThe Traveling Professor just got back from a 42-day trip.  We did a small group tour to Scotland.  We also traveled with a small group to Paris and the Normandy Invasion Beaches.  Our last small group tour was to Croatia for a land and sea trip. On top of that, let's throw in an overnight stay in Barcelona on the way home for just me and Linda.  The worst part about traveling to/from Europe are the flights of course.  On this trip we followed two of my tips and flew to and from Europe comfortably and although not necessarily cheaply, but we felt we got a great value on our flight.  Check out The Traveling Professor's blog post for more details.

The Best Austrian City in Italy

Trieste VisitThere is much more to Italy than Rome, Florence, and Venice.  We do recommend visiting those three cities if you have never been to Italy before.  However, there is so much more to explore.  In between trips to Croatia, we had the opportunity to go up to Trieste, very close to the Croatia and Slovenia border. Although we spent only a short time there, we found it to be a refreshing and most enjoyable way to experience Italy.  Read about our short visit to Trieste in today's blog post.
