Giveaway: Win an iPod Nano from!

I don’t get to fly very often, but I absolutely adore it when I do. The experience of the airport, and all the bustling around, and the plane… it’s just completely thrilling to me.

I know – I’m such a little kid.

But I’m also pretty paranoid about getting the best deal – and experience – possible. I probably still like flying because I’m careful to get nonstop flights whenever possible, and try my best to save as much money as I can in the process. is full of awesome travel tips – practical ones like saving money on airline tickets and the best airlines to get last minute great deals from, and fascinating ones like the seven most amazing sights from airplanes (which really makes me want to fly again!).

They also have articles on really fun stuff like 10 Bizarre Hotels, in case you’re up for a REAL adventure!

ipodnanoThe site is full of useful and fascinating information, and is totally worth your time to check out, whether you fly often or not!!

And, since they’re pretty new and trying to get the word out about their site, they are sponsoring a giveaway here for one of the new and quite fancy 8 GB iPod Nanos!!! And what’s even better – YOU get to pick the color!!!

If you’d like to win the iPod Nano, simply go visit and come back here and tell me a post that you found interesting.

You can get up to four extra entries by:

(be sure to leave separate comments for your extra entries.)

Best of luck! This giveaway is open until Monday, October 25th. The winner will be randomly selected and posted on my giveaway winners page on Tuesday, October 26th.

Disclosure: I received no compensation for this giveaway. My opinions are always my own. And you should really check out those 10 bizarre hotels – wow.

  10. i liked "Cheapest Flights to Exotic Destinations This Winter". I live in California so we dont get "weather" during the winter but it always seems like i get just enough of a bonus and a few extra days off but it is always too expensive (or so i thought) to go anywhere during the winter months!

    I liked "Getting There is Half the Battle." I used to be a cab driver and the airport was always a challenging destination. I've found that in any big city with a subway (NY, Boston, SF, Chicago, DC, etc), that's usually the best way to go unless you have boatloads of luggage.

  140. There seems to be a cost threshold with taxi cabs; if you live or are staying a relatively close distance to the airport (no more than 30-45 minutes) a cab is affordable, but definitely not the most inexpensive option. From New York’s JFK to Times Square will run you about $45, including tip and/or toll fees
