IMM Review – Is the International Media Marketplace Worth it to Bloggers?

International Media Marketplace is a premier event for travel media and tourist boards that occurs in New York City each January.

While new, this one picked up steam as being one of the must-attend events of the years for writers (bloggers included), and in 2019 I made my way out to check out the show after missing it the few years prior.

In this one, I wanted to share a bit more about what the experience is like.

South Mountain Park near Tempe is a large, 16,000-acre park that just begs to be explored.

During my first visit to Tempe, I decided to play it safe and stuck to the portion closest to the city, known as Pima Canyon, and had a wonderful day out.

In this one, I wanted to share some of the best things that can be seen from the trails as well as tips for those visiting the park for the first time.

The following is a guest post by A Wandering Web.

“Don’t drink water, drink only beer!” declared Bishop Arnold, now the Patron Saint of Beer.

He was speaking to people in his Belgian village during an outbreak of the plague in medieval times. Saint Arnold believed the water to be contaminated. He just might have been right because after his statement, the disease was stopped in its tracks.

Belgian's love of beer started off right, and continues to this very day.

Do You Really Need Southwest Early Bird Check In for Your Flight?

Southwest's boarding procedure is an interesting one.

Rather than boarding in large groups at random, Southwest assigns specific boarding numbers to all passengers ranging from A1-60, B1-60, and C1-60 to board the planes.

This is done at check-in, and those who check-in 24 hours in advance vie to get a better boarding position than those who check in later in the day.

But there is an option for those who do not want the dreaded C boarding class to appear on their ticket- Southwest Early Bird Check In.

I tried this one out on a recent flight, and thought it would be appropriate to share when this one is worth it and the other cases when it really isn't.
