2 Days in Langkawi, Malaysia

I was so excited to visit Langkawi, Malaysia again! I was there several years ago for a short stay and always wanted to return. Langkawi is a gorgeous island of Malaysia in the Strait of Malacca in the Andaman Sea. It is near Thailand but very different from nearby Phuket. Here’s what I did on […]

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 […]

The Fallacy of Interacting with Locals

When people regale you with their travel stories, have you ever heard people talk about their local interactions? I hear it all the time amongst serial travelers. When people explain what they do on their trips, they say they go out and interact with the locals wherever they are. They say the locals are so […]

What to Expect Traveling in the Time of Trump

It’s hardly a secret that I did not vote for Donald Trump for President. I don’t agree with 95% of what he says and 99% of what he does. I have actually met him twice, neither of which were memorable-just shook hands in a group of people doing the same thing. I believe that he […]

My Year in Travel 2016

My year in travel 2016 was a busy one that’s for sure. 2016 was a busy year for me in general where I got a puppy named Hector; which is the best thing I’ve done in years. Business wise I had an amazing year in 2016 and I look forward to some new big things […]

The 30 best countries for food is a nearly impossible task and I am sure that everyone reading this will disagree at some or many of my choices. However, that’s what’s so fun about lists like these-everybody has their own opinions. Check out the 30 best cities in the world or the 30 best islands […]

Two Things You Must Do In Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is wealthy; it’s really wealthy. They have oil reserves for generations to come. The capital and largest of the United Arab Emirates is diversifying with incredible tourist facilities and attractions. Abu Dhabi is often assumed to be like Dubai but in fact it’s quite different in the way it’s going after tourism dollars. […]

The North of Qatar

Qatar is a funny place. In fact, it’s a funny word that nobody truly knows how to pronounce! It may be funny, but it is one of the richest countries in the world. Oil and gas trillions have made a major global player out of the small Gulf state. In fact, the country of Qatar, […]

5 Awesome Things to do in Muscat, Oman

The Sultanate of Oman is a fantastic country to visit. My third trip to Oman has been absolutely wonderful. Aside from doing a 4×4 safari to Jebel Harim in the Musandam Peninsula, I revisited Muscat. It’s a city I wasn’t very fond of the first time I was there. I basically did a complete 180; […]

4×4 Safari to Jebel Harim in the Musandam Peninsula of Oman

Today I visited the Musandam Peninsula in Oman for the third time. I’m onboard the the Azamara Journey, which became the first cruise ship to dock in Khasab, the capital of the Musandam Peninsula. The prior two times I had driven up from Dubai when I was visiting all of the Emirates. This was the […]
