    #Travel highlighted in #Superbowl Commercials

    #Travel highlighted in 2015 #Superbowl Commercials. There were three stand-out Superbowl commercials that put travel in the spotlight. Of course, they caught our attention. We love cruising and found the Carnival Cruise Lines super bowl commercial inspiring. It combined beautiful visuals and the words of John F. Kennedy: “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” Then, they invited us to come back to the sea. We accept!

    The Doritos commercial was just downright funny. As frequent travelers, at one time or another, we have all sat next someone who has done one or all of those things.

    Jeep’s super bowl commercial featured the 2015 Jeep Renegade around the world in amazing places, with “This Land is Your Land, this land is my land” rolling acoustically in the background. Anyone ready for a road trip?

    Straying from the Itinerary in Volosko, Croatia

    Sometimes the best travel moments are the ones you don’t plan. I was bummed that I had missed my bus to Split the night before and had to stay in Opatija another evening. I was eager to delve further into my Croatian adventure but had  resigned myself to spending another day in the resort town of Opatija. So I spent the day lounging by the rocks, listening to the waves […]
