The East End of Long Island is less than two hours from New York City and suprisingly rural, so parents often ask me what there is to do out there with kids. Unfortunately, everything I know about the Hamptons I’ve learned from watching Sex and the City and Revenge, which tend focus on adult pursuits like drinking, back-stabbing and adultery.
To find some better answers, 5-year-old Tiny Traveler and I headed out to the Riverhead and the South Fork over spring break.…Continue

I was about to be dropped off a boat for some snorkling, a slightly scary distance off the coast of Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos archipelago. As I have been somewhat traumatized by the film Jaws since the tender age of four I am not very…Continue

First class airline tickets are usually not a choice whether you are a regular business class traveler or just someone who like to go on trips. The cost can easily equal to two or more major travel expense. Those who want to experience it can look for discounted first class tickets offered by many airlines and travel agencies.

Anyone that has been to Nice knows that the Cours Saleya is the heart of Old Nice and is host to the daily food and flower market, except for Monday’s antique market. Being a highly touristic area, the restaurants, situated along each side of this corridor, compete for customers, as they try to verbally lure you into theirs.
I hadn’t eaten seafood in a while, so decided to try “Chez Freddy,”…Continue

Almost Two years ago my wife and I had the "baby" talk and ended up with a puppy. Now we have our baby so what do we do with her? The first idea is to take her but it will take about 10 minutes of research to learn that if you have money to spend and trust just any veterinarian to care for your pet then sure you can take your pet anywhere. In the event you don't have either a fat savings account or a steady stream of income then this is not an option. We opted to send our little baby to…Continue

I visit the Château de Versailles every time I travel to Paris – both destinations are close to my heart, and as a long-standing member of Les Amis de Versailles, I also “own” a tree in the Trianon Gardens. The newly decorated RER train (photos here) provides a beautiful first…Continue

This is my first posting on TBEX so I wanted to make it like a short intro of what to expect from me. I am an American married to a Mexican and we plan on exploring the world starting with Italy. I am also taking a shot at becoming a digital nomad or at the very least a travel blogger so my wife and I have sold everything we owned and are getting everything in order to make our move.

Day Evening! And that’s exactly what I did — at a newly discovered, charming restaurant in the Old Town of Nice, called “Carpe Diem.” What a find!
The food was delicious; service was professional, courteous, and friendly; decoration warm and charming – it was all positive! There were 24 seats in the section where I was seated, with an adjoining room with more seating that can also accommodate events and weddings.

Is the open-air and covered market disappearing in France?
One would think so, from the large prominent supermarkets like Auchan, Carrefour, and Leclerc, but not to worry! There’s the open market in Cours Saleya and at Malaussena in Nice. Cagnes-sur-Mer, just outside of Nice, has rebuilt and opened a new covered market, with all the relevant fanfare - Bon marché!
