Samantha Brown always brings fresh travel tips and new stories.

“Don’t spend all your time in the past,” she says. When exploring a historic destination (such as Rome or Athens), don’t see only the museums and monuments.  See how the people live now. Continue reading 5 Reasons You Need to Bring the Family to the Next Travel and Adventure Show
