However a good friend of mind is AA Executive Platinum and ensured me I would enjoy AA if I flew business class and was Executive Platinum. So I took his word…

Art Attack! Madrid’s Golden Triangle

We all love to travel; it’s an innate part of being human, getting out there and exploring the world around us.

It is a desire that never quite leaves us, even when we grow and mature over the years, it’s just always there: that yearning, the…

Hola! Intensive Spanish Classes at Costa Rica’s Samara Language School

I’d been on assignment at the Four Seasons Costa Rica when I headed south to take advantage of the prize I’d won at an Allianz-sponsored Tripatini event in NYC: a week of intensive Spanish classes at the Samara Language School (Instituto de Idiomas Intercultural) on the beach in Playa Samara. I’d forgotten much of the semester’s Spanish I’d taken in college, and I was looking forward to a quick refresher course. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get there in time for the first class, and I was…
