My Weather Channel Segment

Yesterday I did a live Weather Channel segment via Skype from my hotel room in Providence, Rhode Island. The Weather Channel segment hatched from a post I did a few weeks ago called Top 5 Cold Weather Destinations as a Kensington Tours Explorer in Residence. I mentioned Alberta, the Western Canadian province featuring Calgary, Banff [...]

What Derek Jeter Means To Me

As I sit here on the couch, just minutes before the start of Derek Jeter’s last home game with the New York Yankees, I just started thinking what Derek Jeter means to me. That might sound weird to a lot of people but as a New Yorker, Yankees and baseball fan; Derek Jeter means something [...]

Madagascar’s Limestone Labyrinth

I don’t normally do posts like this but this trip is so cool (and I am very jealous) that I had to do a quick blurb about it. I also want to support a couple of my friends and fellow Kensington Tours Explorers in Residence as they attempt the first ever expedition to the remote [...]

5 Awesome Things to do in and Around Whistler

I first went to Vancouver and Whistler in October 2002 during my first British Columbia trip right after I quit my job for the first time. I basically fell in love with the lifestyle in Whistler and I don’t even ski. I basically just hung around, hiked, mountain biked and wasted a few weeks chilling [...]

Starwood Preferred Guest Card Benefits

Membership has its privileges. That’s the old American Express (Amex) saying that I grew up hearing. I never really put much thought into it as a kid but I’ve been an American Express cardholder since 1999 and have had the Starwood Preferred Guest Card from American Express since 2001. I can now say that membership [...]

More South Pole and Antarctica Trips Added This Winter

As many of you know I went to Antarctica last winter and will be going back this December for a second expedition with the South Pole firmly in my sights! This winter is really exciting because there are two planes flying from Novolazarevskaya Russian Antarctic Base to the South Pole. I have a business relationship [...]

3 Days in Cincinnati

Before mid-August I only knew three things about Cincinnati, Ohio. I used to watch the old sitcom ‘WKRP in Cincinnati’ with my parents, their sports teams and they have a Masters tennis tournament. I literally knew nothing else. So when I decided to go to Cincinnati I didn’t have any expectations at all other than [...]

The Daily Travel Podcast

I recently recorded a podcast with the Daily Travel Podcast. We talked about travel, my story and assorted other topics related to travel, business and why travel is important. Have a listen.

13 Years Later

Thirteen years ago today was the worst day of my life and the worst day in the history of America. For all Americans, but especially for those of us who worked in the World Trade Center or knew anyone who passed away on September 11, 2001; today is always a difficult day to get through. [...]

Great Time to Travel to Australia

I remember back to late 2002 when I first planned to go down under and travel to Australia, I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to realize my lifelong dream to travel to Australia. That trip to Australia was a game changer for me. I spent some 9 months in Oz that trip and have [...]
