Where Are We Traveling in November?

We're always on the move and we love nothing more than exploring new destinations. We sat down with one of our editors, Carmen Morion Castilla, to find out where she's traveling this November. Read on for her top tips on how to make the most of your trip, travel hacks, and where she's headed this fall.

How To Travel Like a Pirate! An Interview with Carmen Morion Castilla

Can you tell us a little about what you do at TravelPirates?

I'm a content editor and deal hunter. My job is to make it easy, enjoyable, and affordable for people to travel. My job is also to motivate potential travelers, inspire them, and ease the whole travel search and organization process for them.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I originally come from Cadiz, Spain. After I studied in Ireland during my fifth year of high school, a whole new world opened up for me. I realized, traveling, getting to know different people, and basically getting out of my comfort zone made me grow as a person, and I wanted more. I started a degree in Business Administration in Seville but thanks to some academic merits-based scholarship, I was able to study two semesters in Germany, one in Canada, and one in Madrid. After getting some work experience in the marketing department of a hotel headquarters, I headed to Germany to improve my German. Once there, I found a job in the travel industry, which led me to stay there for over 3 years. After having lived outside Spain for over six years, I felt homesick and started to look for options to continue to develop myself professionally in Spain and...here I am!

How many countries have you visited?

19

What is your favorite place you’ve traveled so far and why?

Hong Kong. It was the most random and unplanned travel ever. We decided to go somewhere in two weeks and found cheap flights to HK. Since my passport was expiring in 5 months, we could not visit anywhere else in China, we needed to stay in HK province. It turned out that Chinese New Year was the first week we were there. It was just an amazing experience, we were able to participate in the local traditions, and we discovered many beautiful isolated places in HK like paradise beaches and traditional fishing towns..

Where are you traveling in November?

I’m going to Florida because I have a friend living in Tampa who I've been meaning to visit for over 5 years! I will be there with my boyfriend for 10 days. We will arrive in Orlando and my friends will pick us up and take us to Tampa, where we will spend two days before flying to Key West together. We will spend two nights there, then take a road trip through the Florida Keys on our way to Miami, where we will spend one or two nights. Then it's Tampa to celebrate Thanksgiving with my friends. The day after, we will buy a huge suitcase to fill on Black Friday. For the last 3 days, my friends will show us around, and we will probably explore Orlando a bit more.

What are 3 tips you have for someone looking to plan a vacation on a budget?

1. Book either with far in advance or at the last minute (or just use TravelPirates!)

2. If possible, pay with cash instead of a credit card. It helps not to lose track of what you are actually spending.

3. Avoid eating right in the city center, where the most touristy places are, and instead look for somewhere that caters to locals.

What are the most underrated travel destinations?

The Moselle Valley in Germany, Gibraltar, Iran, and Madagascar.

What song/album/artist gets you in the mood to travel?

Lonely Traveler by A. Blue

Some people like to plan everything down to the tiniest detail when they travel, and some prefer to be completely spontaneous. Where do you fall on the spectrum?

I tend to plan everything but thankfully, don't stress out if we change plans at the last minute or cancel them altogether. I think it is good to do research and get the big picture of what you are going to find, and to define you priorities. However, you will just truly see what there is, once you are there. That's why it's normal and perfectly fine to change plans or even to decide not to do anything for a day, and instead just hang around and enjoy the city like a local.

You’ve been gifted an all-expenses-paid trip anywhere in the world–where do you go?

I'd go to the Bahamas to swim with the wild pigs.

What were your most memorable/unique travel experiences?

Going dog sledding in the Rocky Mountains in Canada & spending Chinese New Year in China.

What kind of trip/destination would you recommend for someone who has never traveled outside the US?

I would recommend that they travel in Europe. I think it's interesting for someone who has never left the US to see so many different countries, so close to each other but still so different, with their own customs, architecture, languages, etc.

Tell us about a time when you felt like a pirate on your travels.

Well, once I went to Amsterdam with two friends. Once we got there, we realized we had been scammed with the house where we were supposed to stay in. We found ourselves, three people, in Amsterdam at midnight with our suitcases and nowhere to sleep and found some random hostal with a big poster on the door saying “Free Room”. The receptionist/owner slept on the sofa in the hall, in his underwear, with his cat. We squeezed in a super tiny room with 1 bed, where I saw a mouse.

Anyhow, we took it all with good humor. The receptionist/owner turned out to be super nice, the hotel was right in the city center, we spent very little money, and we had lots of fun and laughed a lot throughout the trip.
