Luz Montez: Hello and welcome to trip on a deal, I'm Luz.
John Palacio: And I'm John— ah, march. It’s that time for a rider passage for every American teen, that sacred ritual known as spring break.
Luz Montez: And this year plenty of kids are chucking the scary economic news and heading down south. Indystar.com reports 30,000 scintillate and semi-sober students will overtake Cancun.
John Palacio: And what's wrong with that?
Luz Montez: They're top spots include Jamaica and Acapulco.
John Palacio: And then there's this. Instead of a spring break, how about a spring fix? Student volunteer vacations are a growing alternative. For example, there's a healthcare trip in Ecuador with the Tondena Foundation.
Luz Montez: Home built for habitant for humanity?
John Palacio: Or spend two weeks teaching English in Italy with global volunteers.org, probably a whole lot more memorable than a wet t-shirt contest in south beach I have to say.
Luz Montez: Well it depends whose memory it is.
John Palacio: Okay. The story got there somewhere.
Luz Montez: March is the time for another annual event, the Iditarod.
John Palacio: Mush!
Luz Montez: Seventy-three mushers raced 1300 miles across the Alaska starting March 7th.
John Palacio: Do they call it a musher? They do, don’t they?
Luz Montez: The mushers, yes Iditarod.com has a fantastic map so you can follow your favorite team’s progress.
John Palacio: Now we tried dogs sleighed and vamped Canada. It’s a lot more strenuous than it looks, I have to say.
Luz Montez: For the people and the dogs.
John Palacio: Yes, but it is a great adventure. You should definitely check it out there or in Alaska.
Luz Montez: And if you're thinking of going, anguish.net keeps a really updated list of great deals in the Land Of The Midnight Sun including cruise specials, flight deals, train bargains and cheap hotels.
John Palacio: Now, sleep tight and let the bed bugs bite. Travelsitetripadvisor.com has posted a list of the top 10 dirtiest hotels in the United States and this is compiled from the sites of hundred of a thousands of reviews.
Luz Montez: Number 10 is the Days Inn in Gatlinburg, Tennessee where one review reports, it looks like a bomb went off.
John Palacio: You know, I don’t even want to know. But up in number two is Miami Beach’s Continental Bayside Hotel. Here’s a sample review, not fit for human habitation.
Luz Montez: And at number 1, right here in New York, shocking is the hotel Carter in the Heart of Times Square where one visitor gushes, discovered new diseases during your stay for free.
John Palacio: You know, they say there’s no amenity there. Come on, a site worth checking out when you plan your next trip, that’s for sure.
Luz Montez: Absolutely, but we love New York. Really, we do.
Do you want to see the Material Girl’s material? Head to London and guck at over 300 of Madonna's film and stage costumes and artifacts. You can browse these famous duds through the end of March at a gallery called the Truman Brewery. You can ogle outfits like Madonna’s pink gown from Material Girl and the black tassel bushey she squeezed into for “Open Your Heart.”
John Palacio: Want to get into the groove? Go to Go-today.com. They’re currently having a six days special including round trip from New York starting at just $ 549 a person. Now there's a ray of light.
Now viewers are always asking us about deals to Disneyland. This one has got us a little goofy. Southwestvacation.com is offering up to 3 nights free added to your book trip. You should see the site for details on that one. But before you go, check out this insightful list of Disneyland’s secrets from Uptake.com.
Now, did you know that Main Street on Disneyland is actually inspired by Marceline Missouri? That is Waltz point hood town.
Luz Montez: That is so fascinating. And that the original submarine voyage featured real mermaids swimming in the water.
John Palacio: That’s an odd job. That’s up there isn't it?
Luz Montez: If you get a hold of your breathe that way.
John Palacio: Now here’s a new Disney campaign that is sure to go viral. Stick your name into the fake TV new site Sun7news.com and suddenly you're the star of all things Disney.
Luz Montez: But this year is going to be especially magical for one very special person. Oh look, it’s us.
John Palacio: And now time for our travel video of the week. It’s the YouTube Sushi Cam. It’s a hop in restaurant in Tokyo named Maguro Bito. They placed a camera on a sushi conveyor when the place was packed with people. And we’ve seen this is strangely in and tasty, isn't it?
Luz Montez: It is. I love it.
John Palacio: And you know what? I always wanted to know what was like to be a sushi, so now I know.
Luz Montez: It’s fishy.
John Palacio: Okay.
Luz Montez: And finally, the hilarious team over a boots and all travel has come up with a clever list of the most exotic animals of the world—ones that you ride. There's a water buffalo in Vietnam.
