An AzAmazing Evening in Manila

One of my favorite things about cruising with Azamara Club Cruises is their AzAmazing Evenings. This was my third cruise with Azamara and of course my third AzAmazing Evening. They are very well thought out and put together nights of cultural entertainment in an important cultural place for the city it’s held in. For my […]

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River

A few years ago, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River was named one of the new seven wonders of nature. At the time, it was one of two that I had not been to: the other being Komodo Island. So when the opportunity for this cruise on the Azamara Quest came up and I saw I […]

The Primates of Borneo

30 Best Things All Hotels Should Have

I stay in a lot of hotels-a lot of hotels! So I am a little particular where I stay, what I expect and what I am charged for. I don’t mind paying for quality but I hate being nickel and aimed and I hate ridiculous charges that are seemingly made up. So here are the […]

Travel Tales Podcast

I recently did the travel tales podcast with stand-up comedian and podcast host Mike Siegel in Hollywood, California. It was a really fun and different podcast than the typical travel podcast I do. I really enjoyed it and while it does go for over an hour, it’s a fun listen.

Why You Need Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is one of those things that people don’t like to think about or talk about but it sure is important to have it when you need it. I always use travel insurance when I travel abroad and have several personal examples of friends and family saving tens of thousands of dollars because they […]
