Planning a Trip to the US

I get a lot of emails from people who live in Europe and other places about how they should structure their trip to the United States. Obviously, the US is a huge country with a lot to see and do and the distances between places can be vast. There is a lot of planning that […]

Ville de Montréal

Montréal is the second largest city in Canada behind Toronto and the second largest French speaking city in the western world behind Paris. Montréal is where the old world meets the modern world. It has unquestionable charm and culture, with a real sense of self and some of the best cuisine around. Montréal is also […]

In-N-Out Burger

I visit Los Angeles very often, at least 2 or 3 times a year and each time I leave to come back home to cold New York, I wonder why I don’t live there. Obviously there are many negatives, mainly the traffic, but I love the restaurants, the laid back vibe with the healthy outdoorsy […]

Problemos en la Riviera Maya

The Mexican Riviera or the Riviera Maya, as it is known in Mexico, is full of great beaches and Mayan ruins. In July 2003, my friend Jake and I were spending a week in Playa Del Carmen, which is about an hour south of Cancun and where you catch the ferry to Cozumel. In my […]

Downtown Cabo San Lucas

Downtown Cabo San Lucas is pretty much what you’d expect from a central area in a Mexican resort town. The only real difference between Cabo and some of the other Mexican tourist towns I’ve been to is that Cabo has a nice harbor in the downtown area that contributes a little something to the appeal. […]

The One & Only Palmilla

The Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is the way all hotels should strive to be, it has unmatched beauty and is one of a handful of properties around the world from the One & Only group. With the focus on impeccable service and the amazing upkeep of the property, you almost don’t mind the […]

New York State of Mind

I was having a conversation the other day about how people are ruder and nicer in certain parts of the States. I was asked where I thought the rudest people were in America. Without even thinking about it I replied, New York. I have lived in New York City for seven years now so I […]

The Canadian Rockies Provinces

I love Canada and have visited the country dozens of times. There is so much to see and do in Canada and I feel as if many Americans and even Europeans have no idea and haven’t even visited our closest neighbor, Mexico aside. From the stunning mountain scenery of the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia […]

Don’t Forget About America

Sometimes we get so caught up in travelling internationally we forget that there are a lot of great things to see right here in the United States. We have the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Western National Parks, LA, San Fran, Vegas, Chicago, New York, DC, Disneyland and Miami. It is important to see your own […]

San Diego

I spent this past weekend in San Diego. San Diego is located on the Southwestern tip of California, just north of the border with Mexico. This was my 6th visit to SD and each time I leave I think to myself, “why don’t I live here”. San Diego has it all and the atmosphere and […]
