Flam is More Than a Railway

If you’ve heard of or been to Flam, Norway then it’s probably because of the railway or as part of the well-trodden Norway in a Nutshell tour that is so popular out of Bergen. I had previously done that tour twice and hence did the Flam Railway twice as well without ever taking the time […]

Bergen, Norway is Simply a Nice Place

Bergen, Norway is the gateway to the fjords and probably the most beautiful city in Norway. It rains some 250 days a year and is very expensive. The people are nice, the food is good and there’s a lot to see and do. There’s nothing stressful or outlandish about Bergen itself at all. So after […]

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 […]

Road Trip Around Washington State

Washington State, not Washington DC, is one of the most beautiful places in America. I have visited Washington State twice before, both times to Seattle and both trips revolved around sporting events-I tend to do that! This time, I planned a road trip around Washington State that would include visits to all three US National […]

Do More Country in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin

Have you ever heard of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin? I had heard of it but didn’t actually realize it until I was asked to participate in the #DoMoreCountry summer travel campaign for the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Chippewa Fall, WI where I have been compensated but all opinions are my own. I was excited […]

5 Essential Places to Visit in Cuba

Ever since December when there were public comments by the government about potentially lifting the 50-year embargo on Cuba, people have been asking me non-stop about Cuba. Is it safe to go to Cuba? What’s it like in Cuba? Is everything going to change once Americans are allowed to go to Cuba? How can you […]

Road Trip from San Francisco to Sonoma

I was recently out in the San Francisco bay area for a weekend to film a commercial for TripIt in the city. I went out a few days early to hang out with my Godson and best friend and spend a little time in San Francisco-a city that I’ve been to 30+ times but can […]

The 10 Mile Hike to Sundance Lodge in Banff National Park

I love Alberta, Canada. I really do. I’ve had a lot of adventures there in recent years including going to Calgary for Stampede, Heli-Snowshoeing, Playing Pond Hockey on Lake Louise and Dogsledding in Banff. Aside from it being one of the most beautiful places in North America, it has a lot of secret adventures that […]
