On the Narrow Road to Mount St. Helens

Forty years ago today, on May 18, 1980 at 8:32 a.m., Mount St. Helens erupted. The enormous first explosion wasn’t from the volcano’s top, as you’d expect.  Instead, in a fury, its north face erupted, sending rock and ash sideways at over 300 miles per Read More The post On the Narrow Road to Mount St. Helens appeared first on .

Ushuaia: The End of the World

There are few places on the planet like Ushuaia.   It is one of those places you don’t accidentally end up visiting.  It is a village of beginnings and endings.   Perched on the southern tip of Argentina, Ushuaia claims the title of the southern most city on the earth.  It is often called the “fin del Mundo” (end of the earth).  Tourism provides the lifeblood of the village.  Ushuaia and her sister city Punta Arenas, Chile, are key departure points for tourist, scientific and activist departu...

Prato della Valle, Padua: Italy’s Largest Piazza

When you write about Italy, you are usually dealing with superlatives. Oldest this, tiniest that. As I was doing research on the squares (piazze) of Italy for my #30dayphotochallenge project, I came across a photo I had taken while in Prato della Valle in Padua. I didn’t have to delve too far to discover that this is Italy’s largest piazza — even bigger than Piazza del Plebiscito in Naples and Piazza del Popolo in Rome. Prato della Valle measures 90,000 sq meters, making it not only the largest...

How To Be A Lekker Guest In South Africa

Guests can be totally lekker but then there are some that could do with a little improvement. I think we all know this, possibly because we’ve been a bit rubbish ourselves sometimes … From demanding refunds for lions roaring too loudly near their rooms, to rocking up with 3 children they didn’t mention when booking […] The post How To Be A Lekker Guest In South Africa appeared first on South Africa Travel Blog.

Getting To Know The City On A Tampa Food Tour

I still remember going on my first food tour four years ago in London. At the time there really weren’t that many culinary tours offered around the world; a fact that seems shocking given how many there are today in 2020. Almost every city I visit has a version and it’s my favorite way to explore any new destination. In addition to delicious food, I always learn more about the culture while on these experiences, and that was especially true when I visited Tampa, Florida. Tampa may not be th...

An Unexpected Daytrip to Sintra, Portugal

In the past, it has been an understatement to call me a travel over-planner. There is no term really to describe the levels to which I would typically plan the fun out of a trip. It always came from a good place, an excitement for the adventure coupled with the desire to not miss anything. Except over-planning is one of the best ways to ruin a trip, whether or not you’re able to tick everything off of your list. Truly understanding this theory of travel has taken me far longer than it ...

What Staying at the TWA Hotel is Really Like

The Golden Age of flying instantly conjures images of attractive couples dressed to the nines as they board a small jet to whisk them away in what must have seemed like no time at all. Onboard they’re served decadent meals with all the finishes and afterwards they smoke a cigarette while enjoying an after dinner drink in the plane’s lounge. The modern traveler hasn’t experienced this kind of luxury in decades and that’s not likely to change any time soon. This desire to return to a more civ...

Designing the Perfect Quick Getaway to Oklahoma City

In recent years I’ve firmed embraced the concept of micro-vacations; quick weekend getaways to new spots. Sure, I also love those weeklong adventures halfway around the planet, but I’ve learned the necessity of leaving home more frequently as a way to decompress and mentally reset myself. Any trip we take has benefits, and most recently I found myself enjoying those benefits in Oklahoma City. I had briefly visited the capital of Oklahoma while driving Route 66, but since spending 12 hours (...

The Unique and Extraordinary Lower Antelope Canyon Tour, Arizona (+ What to Expect)

I can’t believe we even debated about visiting Antelope Canyon in Arizona. We had many people tell us it was unmissable, but then we had heard so many other people say it was maybe not worth it. Lower Antelope Canyon Tour They complained about the Antelope Canyon tours being overcrowded and described it as waiting in line to take a quick photo of the stand out features. It sounded like a factory line up style of a tour. This did not appeal to us at all. The crowds we’ve experienced road trip...

My Favorite Moments Exploring Porto, Portugal

Portugal is enjoying a bit of a moment currently. Scores of travel publications have listed it as a must-visit destination and tourists are responding by planning trips not only to Lisbon, but other parts of the country as well. One of the most popular ways to experience Portugal is by taking a cruise on the scenic Douro River, which is exactly where I found myself a couple of months ago. Sailing once again with Viking Cruises, I knew what to expect from the company, but the destination was...
