I’m a huge animal lover, and I’ve been writing about vacation resorts for a few years now. These two facts might at first seem like a non-sequitur, but on my recent visit to Iberostar’s five-resort Playa Paraíso complex on Mexico’s Mayan…Continue

My playmate’s father walked with a stiff leg from the D-Day invasion of World War II. At the age of seven, we all knew the basics of what this meant – we also knew older kids still without fathers. We boys all talked about what our fathers had done in the recent war. Knowing these men puts faces on the deeds they did as exhibited by the National…Continue

Un aplauso para Bogotá: la capital colombiana lucha encarecidamente por derribar prejuicios y que no se le asocie a la guerrilla y la inseguridad. El turista, nada más poner el pie en la ciudad, se da cuenta de la alegría que trae hasta el interior los vientos del Caribe. Con una extensión de 385 kilómetros…
