The Lure of Old San Juan
July 6th, 2011

Almost all of my clients who travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico go as the embarkation port for a cruise or for the beach and shopping.  Having visited San Juan in April, this trend disappoints me.

February 22nd, 2011

Part of the lure of traveling is the unexpected, the unknown factor. That can, of course, come in many forms some of which may not be so pleasant. Often, though, I find this in the form of destinations that take me by surprise – those which you don’t expect to love, or don’t know what [...]

Photo of the Day – Lyon’s Notre Dame
February 19th, 2011
