    Dive Grand Turk!

    Imagine crystal clear, turquoise blue water that turns dark blue just a few hundred yards from shore where a wall drops to 7,000 feet, abundant with magnificent corals, sponges, tropical fish, turtles and miscellaneous sea critters. It’s less than a ten-minute boat ride to most dive sites, bright and sunny days with a nice breeze and a pleasant water temperature, not to mention beautiful white sandy beaches where donkeys and horses can be seen roaming freely. If you see all of the above and friendly people who drive on the left-hand side of the road, then you’ve pictured Grand Turk island, the capital of the Turks and Caicos.

    There’s Nothing Touristy About Molokai

    Molokai is one of the most beautiful and spiritual places we’ve ever visited. It has the highest sea cliffs in the world, lush tropical vegetation, a fascinating history, and a population of beautiful souls. There is nothing touristy about Molokai. It is authentic, genuine and unpretentious. It’s what we imagined Hawaii to be before it became one of the world’s premiere tourists destinations.

  • Eco-tourism in Costa Rica

    Eco-tourism in Costa Rica

    On a recent trip to Costa Rica, I learned first hand why eco-tourism is a phenomenal way to travel throughout the tropics. Eco-tourism gives value to the existing forest as well as adding value to reforestation projects. Traveling to the tropics not only benefits the traveler with stories of zip-lining through the canopy, seeing howler monkeys on the side of the road, and having hummingbirds zip by your ear to feed from a heliconia flower 2 feet away from you at breakfast. Why should we care about protecting the rainforest? There are too many reasons to count, but what stuck with me the most in my travels was learning that about 2100 of the 3000 plants identified by the national cancer institute as sources of cancer-fighting chemicals are found in tropical rainforests. Traveling to these places benefits you as the traveler, as well as the local area.

    Making memories with your smartphone #VZWbuzz

    We travel around the world. It seems like we’re always going somewhere or heading home. We are memory makers and our business is sharing them. Smartphones make it effortless.

    Memories are powerful. They tug at your heart strings. We’re very visual. Capturing our memories in photographs and video is a way to hang on to those feelings of joy, a way to remember those no longer with us, and to keep us connected to our past, our roots in a profound and lasting way.

    Sandals Resorts Leave Footprints In The Lives Of Many

    Comprised of over 700 lush green islands lined by gorgeous beaches and radiant waters, the Caribbean is a prime destination for many vacationers from all across the globe.

    Making Burgers at Sea

    Carnival Cruise Lines conspired with Food Network megastar, Guy Fieri, to open an instantly addictive eatery called Guy’s Burger Joint on the lido deck of the Carnival Sunshine. Though many cruisers just ask for a plain burger and some fries before heading over to the radical toppings bar where they create their idea of the perfect burger, there is a menu of Guy’s signature burgers that should not be ignored. During our recent Mediterranean cruise, Rick had the opportunity to […]

    Riding in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile #BucketList

    It may seem a bit strange that a grown man would put “Riding in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile” on his bucket list, but life has no spice without a little quirkiness. Besides, ever since I first learned of the Wienermobile as a kid, it’s been something that I’ve wanted to do. When the opportunity finally knocked, I answered the door. It happened like this: I was recently participating in a travel centric twitter chat. One of the chat questions asked […]

It is a place to experience new things, challenge your limits, come face to face with your fears, soak in tradition and history, bask in the the sunlight, meditate in the mist, culture, breathe in the beauty of the island and its people, soul search or simply relax.
