3 Days in Sao Tome and Principe

Sao Tome and Principe is that small two-island nation in the Atlantic off the coast of Africa that you’ve never thought about! It’s pretty far from anywhere in North America and it isn’t cheap or easy to get to any way you slice it. It’s not the most beautiful island you’ll ever go to but […]

Equatorial Guinea is the Weirdest Country in the World

Allianz Travel Insurance Coverage Regarding the Italian Earthquake

The 30 Best Islands in the World

A Week on a Mega Yacht in the Maldives

I’ve said it many times that the two best or most romantic places for a honeymoon are the Maldives or Bora Bora. The hotels are amazing and the scenery is as good as it gets. I had previously been to the Maldives twice before and both times I stayed at beautiful resorts and had a […]
