never let the truth get in the way of a good story:
One of these claims to be "The Most Interesting Blogger in the World" I was surprised when I picked up a copy USAToday and saw an item that cited me as "The first travel blogger." I doubt it, though I was early to the game, not ...

Geothermal spas, Viking horses, and elves? Iceland is in a league of its own. My friend and fellow nomad Joan Jetsetter made a series of mini-videos about all of the things that make this country magical. The Iceland Cometh...are you ready for it?

That wraps up our week of reminiscing in Bermuda. Thanks for coming with us! I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to go home yet. I'm with Mark Twain on this one. "You can go to heaven...I'd rather stay here."
A fun geo-quiz that gives hints to viewers about where they are and that showcases why they should be there. So, where in the world are you are?

Calling all bikers! In less than a month, I will be setting out on a legendary cycling tour of Cuba with my family and friends at Costa Rica Expeditions. We will pedal through the Bay of Pigs, Havana, Trinidad, Santa Clara (where Che Guevara is entombed), and “The Pearl of the Caribbean,” Cienfuegos. This may be one of the last opportunities to see the real Cuba before tourism shifts the landscape. So...who's coming with us?

Hunting for the perfect cocktail? Look no further than Bermuda--a little island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean where they are getting it right. So what will it be: a Rum Swizzle or a Dark N’ Stormy? I know what I’m having…
Bermuda is a place where you can suit up during the day and let your hair down in the evening. We found the recipe for making proper drinks in Bermuda.

Hoppin' Johns, wahoo nuggets, and rum-spiked fish chowder. This is what we call island soul food. Only in Bermuda...
Bermuda has a plethora of food options, from sitting down at a lunch counter to formal dining where a jacket is required. Look no further than Bermuda...
