ILTM Cannes 2013

ILTM Cannes 2013 was my first ILTM in Cannes. I had previously been to ILTM Asia in Shanghai in June and was unable to attend ILTM Americas this past September. I normally don’t attend many travel shows or conferences. I generally find them useless for what I am interested in-especially the biggest industry conferences and […]

My Thoughts on Moulin Rouge

What do you think of when you hear the words Moulin Rouge? Dancing girls, can can, music, movies, glitz, tourist trap, boobs…that’s what I thought of before I saw the show Sunday night in Paris. I really didn’t know anything about it other than some passing words from others and I knew about the movie […]

Bonjour Paris!

Alas, I start blogging my trips again after a nearly 2 month homestay if you will and I come to you currently from Corsica having just left Paris yesterday morning. I will have more from Corsica, hopefully tomorrow, when I get to Sardinia as the connection here isn’t very good surprisingly but it is gorgeous. […]

Paris is a Moveable Feast

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast” – Ernest Hemingway My favorite heroine put it perfectly so what can I say about Paris that hasn’t already been said? […]

Like Visiting an Old Friend

I was fortunate enough to have an eight hour layover today in Paris. It was my first time in Paris since December 2001 and my seventh time overall. It was like visiting an old friend because I know the city so well and although I haven’t seen it in a while-not much has changed and […]
