My Favorite 2018 Travel Experiences

It’s that time of year again, when we all reflect on the previous 12 months and for me that means reflecting on the great travel experiences I was fortunate enough to enjoy. This list is more than just about far-flung locales, it’s about travel experiences that were special, many times unique and oftentimes just a whole lot of fun. Sure, we learn and grow as people when we travel, but the experience is also supposed to be fun and for me, these moments were amongst the best I enjoyed in 2018. I...

Christmas Day on Ipanema Beach

Of all the dangers I’m supposedly facing in Rio de Janeiro, it’s the old ladies walking their dogs I fear the most. The dogs are fine—they are leashed, groomed and even dressed up like four-legged humans sometimes—but their owners glare at everyone they see as if people were cockroaches ruining their walk. These long-time Rio de Janeiro residents usually live in a desirable neighbourhood, like Copacabana or Ipanema. From the moment they step on the sidewalk and double check to see if the door of...

A Vape Guide to Travelling Across the Globe

Not only is vaping becoming increasingly popular across the globe, but it’s contributing to a decline in the number of active smokers. To illustrate this, the number of vapers rose from 7 million in 2011 to 35 million just five years later, while research group Euromonitor estimates that the number of adults who vape will reach 55 million by 2021. At the same time, the number of smokers has continued to decline falling from 1.14 billion to 1.1 billion since the turn of the century. In the domest...

Merry Christmas from Venice! 2018

Merry Christmas from Venice 2018 - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) Venice is a Catholic city, with churches in every campo, and bells atop steeples ringing hourly throughout the town. Founded in 421 A.D. just around the time of the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, Venice naturally leaned toward the East to the Byzantium Empire in Constantinople, whose official state religion was Christianity. Its isolated position and seafaring merchant nobility allowed Venice to create a unique b...

If Santa Claus Traveled By Commercial Airline For Christmas

Kris Kringle stood at the repair shop in disbelief after the mechanic told him that the catalytic converter in his sleigh had been recalled — and that the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals officially informed him that using reindeer for such hard labor as to transport the weight of him and the tons of presents to millions of homes around the world was considered cruelty to animals did not help matters.

14 Things I Love About the Hyatt Visa

Hyatt re-launched their credit card in the middle of the year and I took my old one out of the sock drawer, quickly upgraded to the new version, and have worked to put about $30,000 spend on it this year. As a result I locked in my top tier elite status for the year despite doing my best to limit my travel, and I picked up a couple of free nights in addition to points in the process. Hyatt's points are the more valuable than other hotel chain points, and they're also the easiest to use to secu...
