    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, […]

    Photographing #DoorPorn in Castelo Rodrigo, Portugal

    For centuries, Arabs, Jews, and Christians have peacefully coexisted in the village of Castelo Rodrigo, Portugal. As an invited participant in the #VikingSocial Portugal’s River’s of Gold cruise, I had the opportunity to explore and photograph the 13th century fortress. One of my quirks as a photographer is photographing old doors. I found that the combination of old wood, stone walls, and growing vines made the #DoorPorn in Castelo Rodrigo some of the most interesting that I’ve […]

  • Travel Therapy: The Healing Waters of the Danube River #VikingCruises

    Travel Therapy: The Healing Waters of the Danube River #VikingCruises

    I could barely contain my excitement as I was about take my first ever river cruise. We would be traveling down the famous Danube River on Viking River Cruise from Nuremberg, Germany to Budapest, Hungary. It was the first week of December and we would be visiting Christmas markets in each of the cities we stopped in. My best friend (and frequent travel partner) Lucille, was coming along and she was equally excited. I was already packed weeks in advance knowing the upcoming Thanksgiving holidays would be pulling me in a million different directions prior to my departure.

  • #Travel highlighted in  #Superbowl Commercials

    #Travel highlighted in #Superbowl Commercials

    #Travel highlighted in 2015 #Superbowl Commercials. There were three stand-out Superbowl commercials that put travel in the spotlight. Of course, they caught our attention. We love cruising and found the Carnival Cruise Lines super bowl commercial inspiring. It combined beautiful visuals and the words of John F. Kennedy: “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” Then, they invited us to come back to the sea. We accept!

    The Doritos commercial was just downright funny. As frequent travelers, at one time or another, we have all sat next someone who has done one or all of those things.

    Jeep’s super bowl commercial featured the 2015 Jeep Renegade around the world in amazing places, with “This Land is Your Land, this land is my land” rolling acoustically in the background. Anyone ready for a road trip?
