A Dream Vacation to Lake Como, Italy

This is a sponsored post from my friends at Allianz Travel Insurance that seemed quite fitting because I am in Italy as we speak. Lake Como is absolutely stunning and one of my favorite places in Italy. This is an excellent guide to Lake Como and since I never really wrote about my experience, this […]

How I Made it to the North Pole

How I made it to the North Pole is a roundabout story that goes back more than 2 years. Ever since my first failed Antarctic expedition when Prince Harry prevented me from reaching the South Pole and when I finally made it to the South Pole I knew I was going to go to the […]

My Serbia Road Trip Essentials

Serbia is a big country for the Balkans and there is a lot of ground to cover on a Serbia road trip. Coming up to Belgrade from Kosovo via Montenegro, we saw much of the country and it is a beautiful place. This was my second trip to Belgrade after a 2007 visit that had […]

The Ultimate Kosovo Road Trip

Kosovo is that place that is a country but isn’t technically. So that’s why when I’m asked how many countries are there, the answer is ‘it’s complicated’. It’s a beautiful place in a historically volatile region. I first visited Kosovo in 2007 by bus from Skopje, Macedonia. I only visited Pristina and was honestly not […]

Where to Stop on a Macedonia Road Trip

After 2 days in Tirana, Albania my Macedonia road trip began. This was to be the start of a 1700km/1100 mile road trip through much of the Balkans. I had done a similar trip some 10 years ago taking busses and trains; which sucks as a way to travel in the region because you’re really […]

2 Days in Tirana, Albania

I have to admit before this trip to Albania, I would have said Albania was my least favorite country in Europe. My last trip in 2007 ended up with me getting the bird flu amongst a series of mishaps during our 3 days traveling from Montenegro down to Greece with a few stops along the […]

A Perfect Weekend at The Savoy Hotel London

If you were to name the most famous hotels in the world, there are few hotels that would definitely come up over and over in travelers’ lists. These hotels would have to have history and prolonged excellence over a long period of time. They would have to change for modern times but maintain their classic […]

Rugby World Cup Road Trip

I love sports and I love travel. I’ve always said that sports and travel go together. One of the advantages to traveling as I have over the years is that it has exposed me to other sports and sporting cultures. I can confidently say that I know more about global football, as in soccer, than […]

Svolvaer and the Troll Fjord, Norway

One of the better days of my recent cruise onboard the Azamara Quest was to Svolvaer and the Troll Fjord in the same day. I had been looking forward to checking out the Lofoten Islands or the Lofoten Archipelago and the natural beauty was undeniable. While I wouldn’t say that Svolvaer is amongst my favorite […]

Why Geiranger is the Best Fjord in Norway

I had long heard tales about Geiranger and Geirangerfjord. I had heard of its beauty and amazing landscapes. It was said that it was the best of the fjords. I haven’t seen all of the fjords in Norway but I’ve seen a lot of them and all of the supposed top fjords. With that said, […]
