An AzAmazing Evening in Manila

One of my favorite things about cruising with Azamara Club Cruises is their AzAmazing Evenings. This was my third cruise with Azamara and of course my third AzAmazing Evening. They are very well thought out and put together nights of cultural entertainment in an important cultural place for the city it’s held in. For my […]

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River

A few years ago, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River was named one of the new seven wonders of nature. At the time, it was one of two that I had not been to: the other being Komodo Island. So when the opportunity for this cruise on the Azamara Quest came up and I saw I […]

The Primates of Borneo

Back in 2009 when I was still trying to visit every country in the world and in fact every territory in the world, I went boppin around Borneo for a few days. That seems like a lifetime ago and earlier today when I landed at Sandakan onboard the Azamara Quest in the Malaysian state of […]

Komodo Island: Land of Dragons

I’ve long wanted to visit Komodo Island and see the Komodo Dragons for myself in the flesh. Each prior time I’ve been to Bali, I just couldn’t work it out time wise. Getting to Komodo Island is no simple task either. You need to dedicate at least 2 days flying to a neighboring island from […]

My Year in Travel 2014

2014 was a pretty amazing year for me. My year in travel 2014 was focused mainly on work trips but I still managed to get a lot of fun trips in there as well and achieved some really cool travel goals and just goals in general. I also achieved my goal of being home more […]

As many of you know, I’ve been working with American Express for a few years now and this is my second year as one of the SPG Amex Stars. For this program, which I am very proud to be a part of, I have to do certain trips and tasks throughout the year using a […]

A Culinary Tour of Grand Bahama Island

I was invited to do a culinary tour of Grand Bahama Island and I couldn’t pass up the chance to see the best of what the island had to offer. I had never been to Grand Bahama so I was also interested in seeing how it measured up to other Bahamian islands I’ve visited like […]

Qatar Airways Business Class

Qatar Airways is one of the best airlines in the world. In fact, earlier this year I named it one of the 30 best airlines in the world at #6. You may or may not know much about Qatar or Qatar Airways but you should and you will in the coming years. The tiny Middle […]

Marrakech is a Must Visit for Travelers

Marrakech, Morocco is one of those places that a traveler has to go at some point in their lives. There is an almost mythical, ancient Tuareg connotation to the name and the modern day city is both what you’d expect and also completely different. Marrakech has an old core that really hasn’t changed too much […]

Raffles Hotel Istanbul

The Raffles Hotel Istanbul is the epitome of what a luxury hotel should be. The Raffles Hotel Istanbul is one of only 11 Raffles properties around the world and only the second one that I’ve stayed in (Singapore was the other). I was floored by how awesome my stay was. It wasn’t just because of […]
