Just back from our second fabulous stay at Club Med Punta Cana. Already wishing that everything at home was as close as the beach there and as beautiful... I would go back tomorrow if I could!!!
This post will have many child-centric comments for visitors with young children. If you are not interested in kiddie stuff, Club Med Punta Cana is not just for kids - read my Trip Impressions

I never realized just how important a pair of tennis shoes (or running shoes as I use the terms interchangeably) are to good travel! Back story: I'm a fan of boots and have worn them almost exclusively for the last 15 years or so. Sometimes I'd wear flip flops or sandals but not that often. I just never had a need for a pair of running… Continue

Out of nowhere you feel it - fear. You're not sure why you feel it, and because it doesn't make sense, at least not yet, you choose to ignore it. Perhaps you just don't want to be rude or look stupid in an effort to avoid whatever it is you can't quite grasp that is scaring you. Well I'm here to tell you there could be a very good reason you're afraid, and it doesn't always have to make sense and it's okay to look stupid or act rude, even if you are a… Continue

"Only the title is good"
"Overall, a horrible, OFFENSIVE, read!"
"Trashy, but interesting."
"Waste of time"
"Initially distracting, finally brilliant!"
"Outrageous, messy, raw, brilliant

If beef is the national dish of Argentina, dulce de leche is undeniably the country’s sweet treat -- the average Argentinean eats 6 pounds each year. Dulce de leche is a creamy, silky dessert made from sweetened milk. It tastes something like caramel, without the syrupy aftertaste. The texture is smoother and fuller than caramel but not grainy or dry like peanut butter.
Describing the taste does not do it justice, of course. You’ll just have to try it. And in… Continue

Each year people from around the world tune in to watch The Iditarod Sled Dog Race, which is also known as the Last Great Race on Earth! As a life long Alaskan mushing has been all around me in one form or another... and heck I used to deliver the Anchorage Times with my dog hitched to a sled.
If you ever have a chance in your life to witness this race, do it! The ceremonial start takes place downtown Anchorage a day before the official start, which takes place in… Continue

Recorded in the TravelCommons studios outside of Chicago at the end of a full week home, decompressing after 6 weeks of straight travel. We talk about some "travel rules" violators -- the woman whose airport meltdown is a YouTube hit and an Amazing Race couple whose violation got them eliminated. A listener suggests a topic -- what is the one thing you never want to hear on a flight? And we close with a couple of suggestions on how to avoid the growing cacophony of flat screen TVs shouting out… Continue

You've saved your pennies and dimes for half the year, put in long hours just to make sure all your responsibilities are covered while you're gone and then on day two in Europe, you can't stand to listen to one more minute of the tour guide as your brain is waging a war against your skull as it tries to leave for good. What's more, at that moment, you'd be glad to let it!
Headaches. No one likes them.… Continue

Just thought I would let all you bass fishin' fools know that the bass are on in Central Florida. I have been guiding this week and we've had two trophies, one ten pounder and one thirteen pounder. Of course, the full moon is the best time to fish, but the new moon is pretty good too. The next new moon is March 26th. Otherwise, you would have to wait till the full moon in April, which is the 9th. Spring Break is a great excuse to come to Florida. You can go to the beach, go fishing, and visit… Continue

Yesterday was known as ‘Holi’ amongst Hindus. This holiday is a celebration of color and the coming of Spring, and it is always held on the day of the full-moon in early March or late February.
The night before, bonfires are lit in the streets (and sometimes the forests, most dangerously) in reference to a Hindu myth. The day after, devotees hit the streets and throw colored water and paint powder on anyone and everyone. This is what makes for the famous display of color that Holi is… Continue

It was dark in the cabin, the seat belt sign was on, passengers were watching the in-flight movie, and we, the crew, stood in the coach galley talking about...oh I don't remember, but I do remember we were flying from Los Angeles to New York and it had been an uneventful flight. Which was nice for a change. I had been just about to remark on the nice flight when the flight attendant working in the first class galley called us in the back.
