The "shake-down" in Panama Everyone should see the Panama Canal at least once; however, if you schedule one of the 4 hour tours, you'll be begging for 3 hrs and 30 minutes of your life back. Once you've seen one boat go through the locks, you've seen them all. You'll thank me later. Before … Continue reading Christmas in Panama
Giraffe Manor (owned by The Safari Collection), is a 12 bedroom, quaint boutique hotel, located in the Nairobi suburb, Langata. Each room is named after a giraffe, except the Karen Blixen suite and the Finch Hatton suite. I reserved the Marlon room.

EGYPTEgypt taught me to be open to trying new things and meeting new people. On the second … Continue reading What each Country taught me

The airport was my introduction to how family oriented Vietnamese people are. I think whole families come to greet and see family and friends off as … Continue reading Vietnam is one of Asia’s best kept secrets!

Combined, they had more than 45 passport stamps, and through all of my trips and hearing hundreds of travel stories they had the best travel stories.

I can't believe it's already June, but I guess time flies when you're having fun. Since November (Egypt), I've been to Cuba (Havana and Vinales), United Arab Emirates (Dubai & Abu Dhabi), South Africa (Cape Town) and Greece (Santorini, Mykonos and Athens). Every trip furthers my belief that you can't believe what you hear and/or see on television. … Continue reading Christmas in Cuba
