How Social Travel has defined my life

I was born in Belfast Northern Ireland, but my earliest memories as a child are from a lake cabin in Minnesota. When I was younger, my father insisted that my family take a month long vacation every year. When we were living in Ireland, this meant a trip to see our family in Minnesota.

How climate change is affecting West Africa

The Copenhagen talks on climate change were suspended on Tuesday due to a walk out by the African union. Tensions rose because the African delegates feel that the Kyoto Protocol is being undermined by the richest developed countries.

The proposed ‘all on the same level’ stance risks undermining… Continue

Traveling Your Conscience

I promise not to step up on a soapbox here, but, if you're a traveler or travel professional, I've been wondering how you handle traveling to places that have political or policy environments that go against your conscience. Brutal political regimes where human rights are a rare commodity are perhaps the most obvious examples, but what about states, provinces, etc. in your own country that have enacted laws or policies that go against your values.

For example, I suspect many of you… Continue

Relais La Suvera

La Suvera was a dream. The hotel goes back to the High Middle Ages as the Castle of the County of Siena ruled by the legendary Countess Ava Matilde dé Franzesi, a relation of the King of France Clovis, also known as the Queen of Montemaggio.
