After meeting Thavi I decided I was going to find and buy some sort of protective bubble to keep him in, far away from all the mean people in the world. He’s the sort of guy that you love to be around. The kind of guy who is so nice, some people might take advantage of him because he’d just roll along with it avoiding confrontation. When you meet him, you just want good things to happen for him and all bad to…
Charlottesville was just named the location for the 2011 Wine Blogger Conference. This event, July 22-24, 2011, will attract hundreds of people passionate about wine to the home of Thomas Jefferson, a man as equally passionate about wine.
How exciting to have people come to Virginia to explore Jefferson's connection with wine…
When over 300 Travel Bloggers, Writers and PR Pros left the Cantor Film Center in NYC on June 27, there were many feelings. Speechless was not one of them. Here, in your own words, some nuggets of wisdom from this year, suggestions for next year, travel tips and marketing takeaways...THIS was TBEX '10:
Continued from On the Road: What's in a Name? this is part 2. We'll kick off with a little bit of well known history of the Camas Prairie and then step into the stories of a town called Denver and a lake called Tolo: Denver reveals itself as a…
What I've experienced in the last week can only be described as a whirlwind. I began working full time for Galavanting Productions on June 15th and every day since then has been total, beautiful chaos. Let me explain.
P&O Cruises have introduced a great way to take your cruise holiday whilst making considerable savings. If you are looking to sail the seas leading up to Christmas, or wish to escape for the New Year, P&O cruises have designed Flexicruise just to suit you.
Flexicruise is the new way to cruise and offers substantial savings if you can afford to be flexible with your departure dates and state room location. With Flexicruise you will pay a set reduced price…
It may have taken most of the last century for women to catch up with men in the workplace, but finally it seems that many intrepid sea-women are finally being noticed. Taking on roles that have primarily been male dominated, and it is fair to say none more so than that of a ship’s Captain.
So it was in April of this year, that it was all hail to Sarah Breton who took charge of P&O Cruises 1200 passenger ship ‘Artemis’. Sarah becomes the first female Captain…
It seems only fitting that Royal Caribbean’s largest and deservedly the most extravagant Cruise Liner in the world, the aptly named ‘Oasis of the Seas’, should also be a fore-runner in the array of culinary delights that it has on offer to tempt its passengers.
So, if you are looking for a world class cruise liner with a cuisine to tempt the gods, then Royal Caribbean’s newest ship will surpass any cruise holiday you may have experienced…
Though travel blogs should ideally cover as many places you have left your footprints in, sometimes there are some places that leave an imprint in you so deep you just can't get enough of it. So much so that beyond all the sight-seeing and experiencing food, shopping, cheap beer and all those other traps, you dig deeper into the heart of the country just to try to know what makes it what it is.
In that spirit, I have started a blog that focuses only on Thailand, one of my favorite… Continue

When I visited Scotland I fell in love with the country and the people. I don't know if I have ancestors from there but I hope so since my family primarily came from the British Isles. But I am confident from this trip that anyone would love Scotland. There are not only beautiful golf courses which I'm not really into the city of Edinburgh is absolutely beautiful.
The city is pretty compact but the public transit system is kind of a joke because they're making a new… Continue

A short bus ride out of Oaxaca city, atop a mountain overlooking the valleys below, is the impressive archaeological site of Monte Alban, capital of the Zapotecs for close to 1000 years. From about 100BC to 500AD, the rulers of Monte Alban exerted a dominating influence over the Valley of Oaxaca and across much of the Oaxacan highlands. There is also evidence that they had contact with the leaders at Teotihuacan, only serving to increase… Continue

For those interesting in creating videos, I thought I'd pop on some of my rough notes from Saturday's panel (ie the presentation without a presentation due to my missing chord!) as well as the final version of my video on Potter versus Potter, Harry versus Andrew, and the Search for Authenticity in a theme park -- complete with the TBEX cameo. Thanks for chipping in everyone!…
I was slow to adapt to Facebook. About two years ago I opened a personal Facebook account and attempted to open an account for IHEC Blog (http://ihec-djc.blogspot.com/) but could not figure out how to do so. Finally, in November 2009 I just sat down and tried again and I was successful. Since then, IHEC Blog's Facebook page has gained 279 followers (who will be number 280?). While I lose some followers here and there along the way I continue to slowly gain more followers and… Continue

Salalah – An Oasis for Summer Incentive Travel & Team Building Retreats
If you want your team to experience a mountain team building adventure or a desert safari, you usually have to arrange your trip to Oman from October – April each year. Many Middle Eastern companies in GCC countries find it easier to travel between May and September. They travel to…
Earlier this spring I received an invitation to join one of my closest and oldest friends on a drive between my home and his. With no agenda other than to explore a loose route from metropolis to metropolis we interspersed detours wherever possible and settled on a late June weekend to pack bags and commence.
Our path from Seattle, WA to Surprise, a town in the suburbs of Scottsdale, AZ, carried us through Idaho, Nevada and Utah. On our first leg we planned to leave the far…
