Tea on the Sea – Part 1

Those who know me know my wanderlust as well as my affinity for tea. Some also know I love a good story. While on a recent Caribbean cruise (not a tea tour this time), I began to suffer from a prolonged period without some good tea. Oh, there were teabags. Lipton obviously had the contract for this cruise ship, and no aspersions cast on their products. But I left that world behind a long time ago.  It had been seven long, lonely days at sea (actually only three) since I’d had some “norma...

The best attraction for kids in Punta Cana

Punta Cana has stood out over the last years as one of the most visited places in the world. Its idyllic location in the Caribbean sea bless this Dominican Republic area with crystal clear waters and white sand beaches that look like they were brought straight out of a dream. However, as tempting as this may sound for an adult, the idea is way less charming for kids who often find a lack of activities adapted for their age gap in this area. Thankfully, Dolphin Discovery has opened Pirate Island...

How do hotel star ratings work

In case you missed it, there’s a seven-star resort coming to an Austrian treetop near you. No word on if it’s being inspected by the Lil’ Rascals to make sure it has adequate clubhouse space and “No Girls Allowed” signage since to literally everyone in the world’s knowledge no official rating system exists for tree houses. But it makes one wonder: If a treehouse can claim it has seven stars, can any old hotel do it too? The Burj-al-Arab in Dubai famously claimed it was the world’s first and o...

Best places to travel in April 2020

Despite an old adage about April showers, the fourth month of the year is really when life starts to return to much of the planet. The long winter has defrosted and left with it cherry blossoms, baseball, and plenty of end-of-winter parties, combining to make this one of the most enticing months to get out and see the world. But the best places to travel in April aren’t always the most obvious, where festivals you may never have heard of offer better times than well-worn destinations. So read...

LGBTQ travel in Colombia

Although Colombia has been making great strides in tourism over the last few years, many people don’t realize that it is now one of the hottest LGBTQ destinations in South America. As a result of recent legislation introduced by the government, LGBTQ rights are equal to those of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. Consequently, Colombia has become a tempting choice for queer travelers. Within the last 10 years, a full set of anti-discrimination laws have been established. Domestic partnership and...

Where to eat in Aruba

Over 1.6 million Americans each year chose Aruba as their winter hideaway of choice. This dynamic island packs a powerful punch in a small package — 75 square miles to be exact. From the windswept rocky crags of the east side to the plush white sand beaches along the western coast, this tiny island has enough variety to keep sunchasers coming back again and again. Aruba sits a mere 15 miles off the coast of Venezuela, meaning on clear days you can catch a glimpse of the neighboring country ...

6 dreamy places to stay in Dominica

D ominica is right in calling itself the Nature Island. They’re trying to tell you this isn’t your standard Caribbean isle, all white sand, palm trees, and margarita-drenched cabanas. Dominica rises granite into the sky, ancient lava gradually losing its reign to the silent crawl of the jungle. Here, beaches hide in crescent coves, rivers wend through cypress tunnels, and one massive lake boils over a geothermal hot spot. In other words, you’ve got a lot to take in. The island is large enough ...

ETW #48 Taking a Cruise in 2020

What people think about cruise travel varies dramatically and hinges on their own travel experiences. Past cruisers are usually head over heels in love with the travel style, while newbies have a certain level of skepticism that has always baffled me. I’ve had many opportunities to try a variety of cruise styles over the years, and while it’s not how I always choose to travel it is a way of seeing the world that I truly do enjoy.

Costa Rica: Carribbean or Pacific Coast?

A few days relaxing on the beach is the ideal end to a Costa Rica trip, but which Coast is best to visit, the Caribbean or Pacific? Generally speaking the Caribbean side is more laid back and low key with small guesthouses only, whilst the Pacific is more built up with larger hotels and resorts. However, behind every general rule are exceptions. Nosara on the Guanacaste Peninsula is a bit of an exception on the Pacific Coast as it is very laid back with a strong surf and yoga vibe and strict con...
