Sweet Home Savannah

“Life is like a box of chocolates” echoed through my head as I navigated my way around the small square where Forrest Gump sat on his famous park bench in the 1994 blockbuster film of the same name. The park bench isn’t there of course, but there’s plenty of beautiful filming locations from other movies, […]

Visiting the Seven Wonders of the World

You’ve no doubt heard people talk about the seven wonders of the world and wondered what exactly they are or where they are. The truth is that the original seven wonders of the world (established by the Greeks) don’t exist anymore except for one: the Pyramids of Giza. The Colossus of Rhodes, the Lighthouse of […]

Magical Mahekal

Going to Mexico on vacation? You’re not alone. Millions of Americans will visit Cancun and the Mayan Riviera next year. As demand has grown over the last few decades, former small fishing towns such as Playa del Carmen have turned into international tourist destinations. Over the years I’ve stayed at all-inclusive resorts, boutique hotels and […]

9 Interesting Travel Myths Debunked

Everyone in the World Hates Americans.  I’m sure you’ve heard that. I actually know people who don’t travel because of this widespread belief.

Kazakhstan. It’s a Niiiiiiice!

 It’s the number one country in the world for potassium and number two for prostitutes. The residents drink fermented horse urine. You can thank Borat for everything we know about Kazakhstan, which is nothing. The only things that Sacha Baron Cohen’s 2006 film parody got right about the world’s 9th largest country, is it’s flag […]

Dentistry in Mexico. Tooth or Friction?

Take two scary things, put them together and what do you get? Inexpensive dental care. When a friend of mine first told me about going to the Mexican border to get her teeth fixed, I was skeptical. Actually, horrified might be a better word. It’s bad enough having to dodge drug cartel violence, but having […]

DIY Safari

  I often ask  people I meet if they could go anywhere in the world, where they’d choose. One of the most common answers is often a place that the majority of travelers are unlikely to visit- a game park in Africa. For many of us, just mentioning  the name of the continent conjures up […]

How to Blow Your Mind (But Not Your $$) In Arizona

I first saw a picture of Antelope Canyon on a Windows screensaver. I wondered if it was even a real place since it looked more like a CGI image than something that could actually exist on our planet. As I looked up more information about this remarkable canyon, I realized that I had a growing […]

Git Your Cowboy On! Visiting Tombstone.

The most famous western shootout in American history lasted less than 30 seconds. Almost 140 years later, the town of Tombstone daily relives the gun battle between Doc Holliday, the Earp brothers and “the cowboys”. Visiting Tombstone is like being at a cowboy renaissance festival where you’re not sure who’s acting and who just really […]
