Mexico City Through the Eyes of Frida Kahlo

On our way to Central America, we arrived today in Mexico City, specifically the southern neighborhood of Coyoacán, which was once its own town. We’d been hoping to visit this very picturesque area of the city, as it’s the place where artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), known far and wide for her close-set eyebrows and loud,…

Saying “I Love You” at 35,000 Feet From Seat 7B. Why Not?

Flight attendants are not inherently anti-romantic or anti-social, they’re just brainwashed when it comes to using cell phones in the air.

“Please switch off all mobile phones as they can interfere with the aircraft’s rafts navigation system,” is the flight attendant’s mantra.

But there  is no verifiable  reason why one shouldn’t use a  cell phone…

Even a million miles of travels start with just a single step, then another and another...until you can count no more of your safari steps.

American Airlines Lost, Then Recovered My Upgrade!

For the first time ever today I decided to give American Airlines a chance. I have never flown AA and have been OVERLY loyal to Delta. I have always flown Delta and their partners and have had status with Old Northwest Airlines and Delta for the last 6 years (Since I was 19) and fly on average of 75,000 miles+ a year. However a good friend of mind is AA Executive Platinum and ensured me I would enjoy AA if I flew business class and was Executive Platinum. So I took his word…

Art Attack! Madrid’s Golden Triangle

We all love to travel; it’s an innate part of being human, getting out there and exploring the world around us. We hold within us the desire to explore our surroundings from a very young age, perhaps even starting from the first time we learn to comprehend what is around us as a baby, wandering into places we shouldn’t purely because we want to see what’s there. It is a desire that never quite leaves us, even when we grow and mature over the years, it’s just always there: that yearning, the…

Tired of Traveling With Ugly People?

No, this doesn’t come from us, but from someone who Tweeted about a new travel-dating site called, Misstravel.com

It’s pretty much a travel dating site...with plenty of innuendo.

The explanatory video asks are you attractive, love to travel, but don’t have the money?

It then explains that there…

In Buenos Aires, Your Very OWN Gay-friendly Hotel

Some may call it the restaurant capital of Buenos Aires, but Palermo Hollywood is a barrio with its own distinctive flavour. In the mid-nineties a number of TV and radio producers set up shop  in the area of Palermo Viejo between Córdoba, Santa Fe, Dorrego, and Juan B. Justo Avenues. Subsequently, this part of the neighbourhood began to be called…

Remarkable African Birds

Hola! Intensive Spanish Classes at Costa Rica’s Samara Language School

I’d been on assignment at the Four Seasons Costa Rica when I headed south to take advantage of the prize I’d won at an Allianz-sponsored Tripatini event in NYC: a week of intensive Spanish classes at the Samara Language School (Instituto de Idiomas Intercultural) on the beach in Playa Samara. I’d forgotten much of the semester’s Spanish I’d taken in college, and I was looking forward to a quick refresher course. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get there in time for the first class, and I was…

The Brave, The Bold and The Travel Brands Americans Love

No, price isn’t everything in travel. It counts for a great deal in making travel decisions, but those merchants of “low, low prices” are missing the point.

What seems to drive travel choices is the ability for the traveler to connect with a brand; to feel and identify with it.

At least that’s what the …
