“Travel has a way of stretching the mind.  The stretch comes not from the immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad of new sights, smells, and sounds but by experiencing firsthand how others live differently than what we believed to be the right and only way.” ~Ralph Crawshaw

As an avid traveler and self-proclaimed “foodie” I love traveling to explore diverse cultures and different ways of life from all over the world.  I typically “live like a local” when I travel by immersing myself in the culture and norms of the country I’m visiting. My hope is that the following travel recommendations can serve as a guide as you plan your next holiday.  Feel free to use the “search” button to see if I’ve reviewed the city you’ll be traveling to next.

And for the “plug” you knew was coming…as a proud contributor to Trip Advisor I encourage you to pay it forward and share your experiences so you may help out other fellow travelers as well.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bow lines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
