    Paris through the eyes of Expedia’s Local Experts

    We had never been to Paris so when the opportunity arose for us to see the city of lights through the eyes of Expedia local experts, our bags were packed before you could say merci beaucoup.

    Through Expedia you can arrange a private standard car fromCharles de Gaulle Airport to your hotel. The entire process was very simple. I went online, entered all the flight information, pre-paid ($63.00 from the airport to the hotel) and the driver waiting for us at baggage claim. Having never been to Paris before, this took the stress out of navigating from the airport to the hotel after an 8-hour red eye flight.

  • Underwater arch in Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos, Photographer Kyle Tomao

    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.

  • 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 …
