My 16 Hour Normandy Road Trip

The day before I started my Euro 2016 road trip in France while I was still enjoying my Paris Perfect vacation rental in the City of Lights, my friend and I took a Normandy road trip. Normandy is best known as the site of D-Day; the massive allied invasion of Nazi occupied France known as […]

My Paris Perfect Vacation Rentals Experience

Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love Paris? Paris literally has it all in terms of sites, world-class events and my favorites-food and drink. It is the gastronomic capital of the world. I’ve been to Paris countless times over the past 18 years and stayed in […]

If you love sports and travel like I do then what I’m about to say should immediately go onto your bucket list. I just did a Euro 2016 road trip around France attending 4 games in 5 days in 3 different stadiums in 3 different cities. My 3 friends and I also drove over 1000 […]

3 Places Not to Miss in Sicily

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear Sicily? The Godfather, mafia, Goodfellas, crime and several other non-flattering things brought about by Hollywood. You probably don’t think about stunning landscapes, amazing food, beautiful destinations and a sensory overload of pretty much everything! I just visited Sicily for the 3rd or 4th time and […]

What to do with One Day in Slovenia

It’s funny because all I really remember about my first visit to Slovenia in 2004 was that it rained the whole time. I have some photos from Ljubljana somewhere that I took with a throw away camera but I have no idea where they are. So when I recently had one day in Slovenia, I […]

Americans are Traveling to Europe This Summer in Huge Numbers

5 Awesome Things To Do in Vienna, Austria

It’s funny how your perspective changes as you get older. For example, I first came to Vienna in 2000 just after graduation from college. I had left my buddies who I was backpacking with as I wanted to go to Bratislava and Vienna and they wanted to go down to Milan from Salzburg where I […]

How I Spent a Day in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik, Croatia has an aura about it. The name just sounds European exotic. You are constantly berated by pictures of Dubrovnik on social media and to see it for yourself is to realize the photos don’t even do it justice. You could spend a week in Dubrovnik and base yourself for day trips to neighboring […]

A Bosnia Road Trip Has 2 Can’t Miss Places

Bosnia Herzegovina is an interesting place. If you’re a citizen of a certain age you’ve been through more than most of us could ever fathom. To me, Sarajevo was always the center of the 1990’s Balkans war. It was the most recognizable name from the Balkans as it hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics. It had […]
