Travelers on Budgets
Go Back to School

As students return to college each September, another group is preparing for college visits— travelers on budgets. To pursue their wanderlust, they’re majoring in Travel Economics.

How? By booking “university vacation-accommodations.”

Translation:  They’re staying in dorms.

More and more colleges today offer clean, comfortable dorm rooms to non-student visitors. While some do so only when classes aren’t in session, a growing number of colleges offer dorms year-round.

Travel Inspiration: In Search of Totality

If you’re lucky, they say you may experience it once (maybe twice) in your lifetime. (Let your imagination run wild as to what we’re talking about.)

They also say it is awe-inspiring and life-changing. (Now you can really let your mind reach for the stars.)

And it has certainly been a theme of conversation and travel inspiration for many people for many months.

Final hint: Today is the day.

What is it?
