From France to Sweden to Ireland, here are a few ways to decorate for the holidays like the Europeans do. England: Trim ...

Deleting Facebook is not enough: without antitrust, the company will be our lives' "operating system"

Challenge accepted. Here’s the thought experiment: Fixing Facebook  We’ll start with Facebook because, while it’s by no mea...

What we did on our trip to Lisbon, Portugal We’ve returned from our trip to Portugal and have several memory cards filled with photos and video from our time exploring this under-rated European nation. We spent 2 days in Lisbon before making our way north to Porto, where we joined a river cruise up the Douro River. Initially, when we learned our river cruise itinerary began in Lisbon, not Porto, we were a little confused. On the surface, it made more sense to have guests arrive at the Porto ...

Travel With Me to Ireland For a Unique Adventure

Normally I ask people to ‘travel with me’ figuratively; follow my travels on social media and read my stories in my blog. However, this time when I say ‘travel with me’ I mean I want you to pack your bags and come with me…really! Why Ireland? I pretty much fell in love with Ireland the moment I saw her. She seduced me with rolling, emerald, sheep-dotted hills and plains of gray-green stone. She stirred my wild side with reckless winds tearing across rocky cliffs. Underneath her incredible expa...

If you travel to Ireland, you must see the Cliffs of Moher. Here’s why.

The Spectacular Cliffs of Moher in Ireland Arguably Ireland’s top tourist attraction, the towering Cliffs of Moher are well worth the hype. Located on the west coast of Ireland in County Clare, these rocky sea cliffs, along with the karst limestone hills of the Burren, are recognized at a UNESCO Global Geopark. In our opinion, the Cliffs of Moher, and the coastal region that surrounds them, is THE reason to travel to Ireland. Okay, the Guinness might also be the reason. These spectacular sea...
