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 […]

SPG Amex Holiday Challenge in New Orleans

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 […]

5 Awesome Things to do in Izmir

Izmir, Turkey is a city that I visited way back in March 2001. I remember thinking that it was a boring industrial city that was a good midpoint between Istanbul, Ephesus and the great Turkish coast to the south. I never gave much thought to going back to Izmir. However, as luck would have it […]

What’s up in Kavala and Philippi, Greece

The best thing about this cruise on the Azamara Quest is that I’ve stopped in a lot of ports that I’ve never heard of before; which is unusual for me. Much like the Greek Island of Patmos, the Greek port of Volos and the Turkish port of Dikili-Kavala is no different. I had never heard […]

A Day in Thessaloniki, Greece

A day in Thessaloniki, Greece is a great introduction to Greece’s Second City. Often overlooked by tourists for Athens and the islands, Thessaloniki has quietly been developing its own identity and with a massive young population, it is progressing nicely. Lonely Planet named Thessaloniki as one of the top 5 party cities in the world. […]

Meteora is Otherworldly

I’ve wanted to go to Meteora, Greece before I even knew where it was. I remember watching the James Bond film ‘For Your Eyes Only’ as a kid and thinking, “Wow that place looks cool”. Fast forward some 25 years later and there I was in Meteora and it was just as cool as I […]
