My Latest ABC Las Vegas Travel TV Segment

Check out my latest ABC Las Vegas travel TV segment that I did live this morning on the Morning Blend on KTNV. I have done this show dozens of times and always when I’m here in Las Vegas. Today’s segment focused on my recent completion of all 60 US National Parks. As always there was […]

All 60 US National Parks Ranked

The idea of all 60 US National Parks ranked has been on my mind for a while or at least since I started visiting them frequently over the last decade or so. Rankings of course are all subjective and based on the voters or in this case, my experience and tastes. People will agree or […]

Fairbanks is Basecamp Alaska

Fairbanks is basecamp Alaska. That’s the best way to put it. Everywhere of note, especially in Central and Northern Alaska is reachable from Fairbanks. Plus, the city has a lot to offer in and of itself. My third visit to Alaska brought me to Fairbanks for the first time and the whole massive state opened […]

Four Days at Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic

Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic is a place I had heard about for years but just didn’t know that much about it. I knew it was a resort and they had some golf and it was about an hour from the Punta Cana resort area. So spending four days at Casa de Campo […]

Astana is a Fascinating City

On my last trip to Kazakhstan I remember being mad I didn’t plan to visit Astana. I was so concerned with fitting all the Stan countries into my trip that it was too far out of the way to visit. In hindsight, I’m glad I skipped it because it wouldn’t have been nearly as interesting […]

Social Media Deception

We’ve all seen it and many of us have done it. Social media deception is a real thing. Some people post photos of themselves that are so heavily edited it doesn’t even look like them. I know people that edit out lines, wrinkles, grays and even tattoos. People change eye color, make themselves skinner, change […]

My Experience at the World Cup Russia 2018

My two biggest passions in life are sports and travel. So the World Cup is basically the greatest thing ever. I have been to World Cups before but I never really made a whole thing about it. However, after a Euro 2016 road trip in France that took me all over France, I decided to […]

The New Allianz Travel Insurance Sharing Economy Index is Out

It seems crazy to me because I use them nearly everyday but according to the new Allianz Travel Insurance Sharing Economy Index, half of Americans are unlikely to use sharing economy services for 2018 summer travel. This is despite reporting high familiarity and better value for money. This has a lot to do with the […]

Tough Sledding in Rocky Mountain National Park

Rocky Mountain National Park was the one that got away. I’ve been to Denver some 10 times and done several road trips around Colorado but I never went. It’s only 90-minutes from Denver but it’s a good 45 minutes off the main highway down a state road. So it wasn’t convenient. However, I finally made […]

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is Impressive

Theodore Roosevelt National Park was a complete mystery to me. First, it’s located in Western North Dakota so it takes some effort to get there. Second, I didn’t know much about the Teddy Roosevelt relationship beforehand. Nor did I know that the Badlands extended up that far but looks different than at Badlands National Park […]
