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 […]

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 […]

A Unique 4 Days in Edinburgh, Scotland

I just had a unique 4 days in Edinburgh, Scotland. After flying in from Lisbon, Portugal with my best friend for a few days of touring around Edinburgh itself, I boarded the Azamara Quest in Leith. I then went to the 3rd round of the Open Championship at St. Andrews and went to my favorite […]

5 Awesome Things To Do in Lisbon, Portugal

I wanted to come back to Lisbon, Portugal for the 4th time because it was the major European capital I’d spent the least amount of time and was relatively unfamiliar-at least to my standards. I wanted to get to know the city and the surrounding areas on my weeklong Portuguese trip that included 3 days […]

I Was Underwhelmed With Porto

Porto, Portugal has long been on my list of places I wanted to go to. To be honest, it’s the only somewhat major city in Europe that I hadn’t been to before. Plus I love port and have heard nothing but good things about the little city with a major European soccer team to its […]

What’s up in Kavala and Philippi, Greece

The best thing about this cruise on the Azamara Quest is that I’ve stopped in a lot of ports that I’ve never heard of before; which is unusual for me. Much like the Greek Island of Patmos, the Greek port of Volos and the Turkish port of Dikili-Kavala is no different. I had never heard […]

A Day in Thessaloniki, Greece

A day in Thessaloniki, Greece is a great introduction to Greece’s Second City. Often overlooked by tourists for Athens and the islands, Thessaloniki has quietly been developing its own identity and with a massive young population, it is progressing nicely. Lonely Planet named Thessaloniki as one of the top 5 party cities in the world. […]

Meteora is Otherworldly

I’ve wanted to go to Meteora, Greece before I even knew where it was. I remember watching the James Bond film ‘For Your Eyes Only’ as a kid and thinking, “Wow that place looks cool”. Fast forward some 25 years later and there I was in Meteora and it was just as cool as I […]

Patmos is a Hidden Gem in the Greek Islands

Patmos is a northern Greek Island in the Dodecanese chain and I confess that I had never heard of it before I decided to take another cruise with Azamara Club Cruises. That’s just one thing I love about Azamara; they teach me things about geography! That said, Patmos was a true pleasure to visit and […]
