Here it is a few weeks since our stay at The Esmeralda Resort on the French-side of St. Martin, and I’m still feeling it’s relaxed vibe. This hotel is a fantastic choice for folks who want to slip away for a peaceful vacation that’s only steps away from the excitement of Orient Beach.
Apparently I’m not the only one to think a day without massive traffic congestion and pollution in the middle of Los Angeles would be a good thing! On Sunday, April 15th, L.A. will morph into the longest and largest street fair in the United States. More than 10 miles of downtown LA strets will be […]
I’m just back from a great trip to St. Maarten where I experienced BOTH of the popular Sonesta Hotels; the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and the Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort. (Both on Dutch side). The Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and Casino is conveniently located right next to the airport – you’ll be checking in minutes after clearing customs. The hotel has a city feel, although once inside the resort, you’ll find all the tropical amenities you would expect from a beach resort.
Have you ever had a winter hibernation hangover? Mysterious aches and pains, tired muscles and the inability to get out of bed without four or five hits to the snooze button are all symptoms of this condition. It’s brutal. But there’s a cure that will have you feeling refreshed and it doesn’t require a doctor’s […]
As we pull close to Antigua, here finally are the aquamarine waters that I associate with Caribbean waters. We’re supposed to be docking in the port of Falmouth, known for the multimillion dollar yachts anchored in the gorgeous bay, but the swell is too high and we have to continue on to St. John’s. […]
We’ve all had a great day in Iles des Saintes and are looking forward to the short sail over to Guadeloupe. Guadeloupe is a volcanic island shaped like a butterfly. The larger western side has high peaks and dense rainforests and is an important agricultural growing region in the Caribbean. The eastern ‘wing’ is primarily […]
We had a blissfully calm sail from Dominica to Ile des Saintes, a collection of 8 small islands off the coast of Guadeloupe. All hands were on deck to watch our approach into the beautiful protected bay. I had no familiarity with this destination, and it’s obvious luxury yatchers have been keeping it a secret […]
Anchored off Charlestown early on Sunday morning, we were thrilled to see Nevis’ peak was in full view and not wreathed in clouds as is so often the case. Phillip, our cruise director, cautioned that Nevis is a sleepy little community on an average day, and Sundays are even quieter.
Last winter Clint and I were gazing out to sea at sunset from a funky beach bar on St. Kitts. Off in the distance was the most beautiful sailing ship gliding majestically through the bay with soft sunlight reflecting off its billowing sails. Right then and there I knew I had to get on that ship! A bit of detective work determined that the gorgeous 4 masted schooner was one of Star Clipper’s sailing ships and you guessed it… this winter we went sailing with Star Clipper on a journey through the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean. Join me on this memorable journey:

There’s nothing like taking a ride in a brand new car or vacationing at a glittering new hotel that’s been primped and polished to impress all who enter. While the slow economy has diminished the number of new hotel construction projects in recent years, the winter of 2012 will still see some impressive new additions. […]

The good folks at Skype want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to connect with their loved ones while traveling this holiday season. We can all relate to the video shots each Christmas of travelers delayed in airports, lamenting the fact that they can’t be with their loved ones as expected. Skype hopes their […]
Yesterday Clint and I stumbled upon some of the best crab cakes we’ve ever eaten. One of the great pleasures of traveling is discovering totally delicious food in a completely unexpected place. Such was the case when we stopped at exit 138 off Rt 95 in Rocky Mount North Carolina. I’m never excited about our […]
Chip and Pin credit cards issued in the United States have been on the wish list of international travelers for quite some time now, and I, for one, am ready to sing hallelujah at the announcement that Chip and Pin cards are being introduced by several US banks.
