Traveling Solo ... It's A Good Thing!

What with the movie Eat Pray Love coming out around the same time as my first press trip in years, I got to thinking about the value of traveling solo. Ladies, while it helps to get out of your comfort zone, you don't need to go to Italy, India or Bali to feel at peace with yourself. What you do need is an opportunity to get away from all the things that keep you from searching within, which is… Continue

A Buenos Aires Tradition: INSIDE RestoBar

By Roy Heale

The famous Follies Bergère cabaret of Paris led the way in risqué entertainment in the late nineteenth century. In England “The Full Monty” became a household expression in the 1990s. But today in Buenos Aires one of the renowned main attractions for tourists and…

Stargazing in Utah's Arches National Park

From Luxury to Primitive

Moab, UT

(TTBS) The sun was shining, the sky a beautiful cloudless bright blue as we pulled out of our luxury accommodations in Avon, Colorado. The front that had caused the snow showers had finally pulled out of the area, temperatures were raising and clear weather was predicted for the next few…

A Night in Kenya With The Maasai Lions

(TTBS) It’s not that a night spent in the Serengeti bush is any longer than a typical night somewhere else – but when your tent is sandwiched in Kenya between the Maasai village cows and a pride of hungry lions – it certainly seems that way!

At first I wasn’t sure exactly why my eyes popped open. The clouds from the…

Mancation - Charlie Don't Surf in Santa Barbara, California

How can I explain this title to those under 55? Charlie Don’t Surf is a great line from the film Apocalypse Now about the Viet Nam War; Colonel Kilgore answering a soldier as to why they need to take a point of land with a great surf break and risk lives – all to satisfy the surfing-quest ego of the Colonel. A more recognizable line from the film is “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.” Politics for my…

Southernmost Mojito in Key West

Louie's Backyard on 700 Waddell Avenue in Key West has a waterfront bar called the "afterdeck" that while rustic in appearance, is quite possibly one of the best places to sip a mojito in peace and quiet on this island of motley residents and tourists -- just a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street. Trust me when I tell you, the drink was as good as the view.…

Russia & River Cruising

As part of my job, I often select vacation destinations and write reviews about them (i.e. general information, what to do, where to go, what to see, etc) and recently another agent, Phyllis, escorted a group of clients to Russia! Thankfully, she and the group returned prior to the wildfire & smog issues. Phyllis was so kind as to share her experiences with us as well as provide us with… Continue

Epic Adventures

This past weekend, my best friend Allyson (another avid cruiser) and I had the opportunity to board Norwegian Cruise Line's newest ship, Epic, and take a tour. Before I go into details about our experience, let me just say that the Epic is, quite simply, Epic. It was aptly named & has quickly become a favorite. The NCL staff was not only polite and helpful but created a quick… Continue
