5 Things to do in Western Newfoundland

Life is Good at the Four Seasons Maui

Molokai is the least populated of the inhabited Hawaiian Islands but certainly one of the most beautiful. Molokai is a step back in time; it feels like something out of the South Pacific like the Marquesas Islands or the Solomon Islands; certainly not America.

The 30 Best Cities in the World

I generally hate all those lists going around the Internet these days. The 17 best this and the 25 best that; written by someone who hasn’t even been to the places or someone who I would not consider an authority. Since I’ve been to just about every major city in the world, I think I [...]
