Photo of the Day – Thailand’s Floating Market
February 10th, 2011

Even if you have never been to Thailand, you may recognize this market from a chase scene in an old James Bond movie. In real life, the Damneon Saduak floating market does indeed have a lot of commotion, though it’s not particularly James Bond material.  Instead, it’s visitors and merchants haggling over prices and canoes […]

Escaping North to Iceland
April 22nd, 2010

With a name like Iceland, a country might start off with a disadvantage in the tourism industry. Luckily, enough travelers have been intrigued by its proximity to the arctic circle and awed by its natural beauty to make fears induced by the name virtually obsolete.

Why I Went to Zimbabwe
April 22nd, 2010

My most recent blogs have featured destinations that most others aren’t – either destinations I’ve visited, or want to, that I feel are worth sharing with others. kawaii licorne Last year, I went to southern Africa for 16 days and I couldn’t pass up the chance to go to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
