Seventh Wonder

I do not recall when I created the goal, or even what made me want to achieve it, butsomewhere along the way I decided to tackle the New Seven Wonders of the World. For those who are not familiar, on July 7, 2007, the results of a popularity poll announced the “New Wonders” as the […]

Amman Marriott

The Marriott wasn’t my first choice, perhaps not even my second, but they came through with a world class experience. The more I travel, the more I attempt to stray away from hotel chains and choose Homestays or Airbnb type properties. This Marriott was equipped with three full restaurants and a piano lounge; all great […]

Casablanca Valley

Given its close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the Casablanca Valley’s wine business is quite successful. The cool breezes and heavy morning fog are ideal for the production of popular white wines, including sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, and red wines, including pinot noir and syrah in the higher elevations of the Valley. Through TripAdvisor I was able […]

Cousiño Macul

Cousiño Macul is the only family owned winery in Chile that continues to be maintained by the family dating back to when they opened their doors in 1856. All the wines are grown, vinted, and bottled on the premises. During my tour of Cousiño Macul, I was allowed to bicycle through the 750 acres estate, […]

BA Airbnb Experiences

I booked my trip to Buenos Aires and Santiago a week before departing. I found reasonable airfare and Airbnb apartments in prime locations. I had no clue when I arrived how I would be spending my days, and I frankly was not in a rush to figure it out. I was simply glad to be […]

Airbnb Recoleta

I could not have picked a better area then Recoleta. In addition Juan Carlos was the perfect host. He was very attentive to my needs! I found the apartment and the neighborhood to be very safe which made me feel comfortable since I was traveling alone. After walking out the front door I had markets, […]

Surviving Cuba

Before I boarded the plane to Havana, I was bombarded with a plethora of advice in many different forms. I received calls, texts, and even emails with different options of what to bring, how to pack, survival tips, you name it. So now that I received my Cuban stamp, I am ready to share mine. […]

Havana Airbnb

When staying in a foreign country, location is key. I could have not been more pleased with the location of Claudia and Sergio’s apartment. After walking out the front door, you have a gelato shop a block to your left, and to your right, four restaurants with a plethora of options. A little further down, […]

The Papo Experience

Papo was a tour guide service referred to me by two friends who used the service on different occasions. As much as I travel, I was skeptical about paying someone to create an itinerary that I could have done myself. However, after months of not planning anything on my own, I finally decided to let […]

“Enjoy The Sky”

I always attempt to fly out of my comfort zone and entrust my flight experience to the local carrier. Who better to prepare me for the Egyptian culture than Egypt Air, or so I thought. So, I arrive at John F Kennedy three hours in advance just as I was prompted. I had done my […]
