The Alleys in Marrakesh

  Endless passages have we wandered about in the Marrakesh Medina aimlessly with a gentle pace gathering moments into our memory banks. Inspired by the kindness of people who's prayers echo over the sunkissed Riad walls where faith is evident as well as hardworking souls and traditions that carry them onward: A little girl walking with a tray of bread balancing on her head to be baked in the community oven, donkey driven carts, carrying supplies this way and that, racing scooters that weave smo...

Travel Tip: Balloon Ball

Here's a tip I picked up from Julian Cable-Treadwell, the Director of Marketing for the Marriott San Juan Resort and Stellaris Casino. Julian's wife packs some (not-inflated) balloons and string whenever they travel. All she needs to set up a great game for the kids is an empty gate area. She ropes the area off with her string, and within minutes, she's the most popular mom in the airport! #mc_embed_signup{background:#fff; clear:left; font:14px Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; } /* Add your ...

Sauna Culture in Europe Over the Holidays

I’ve become quite taken with saunas recently — primarily dry, wood paneled saunas, but I’m not unhappy with steam rooms. I find myself more relaxed after a deep sweat; I also think it helps me sleep better. Taking a cold plunges after a hot sauna is especially effective at lifting my energy level in the hours following. Cold showers can serve a similar purpose. A friend once advised to “breathe” in the cold plunge if you feel like the cold is overwhelming. When the cold starts to feel too much,...

I’m going to post a few more photos from New York City as my jet lag is still going strong and the only places in Paris that I’ve been to have been grocery stores. Plus, it’s gray and gloomy out there so it’s not very inviting. The transportation strikes are a bummer too. Aren’t I a gloomy gus? I’ll make myself get out of our apartment soon.

LAST CHANCE: Get the AAdvantage Business Card While There’s Still 70,000 Miles Being Offered

In October Citibank brought back their great 70,000 mile initial bonus offer for the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Mastercard® ($4000 spend within 4 months of account opening, $0 annual fee the first year then $99).

The Magdalen Islands or their French name – Îles de la Madeleine are an archipelago of more than a dozen, almost treeless islands, linked by kilometres of sand dunes as far as the eye can see.
