My Second Date with Switzerland – Discovering the Best of Basel
Basel switzerland 1

Although I travel to Europe fairly frequently, a major notable omission has and continues to be Switzerland. And I have no good explanation for it either. From all appearances, the country seems to be in possession of all that I look for in a new travel destination: great food, amazing natural landscapes and vibrant cities. Although I can’t explain why I’ve spent s...

10 Random Museums You Don’t Know But Should Visit
Abba museum stockholm sweden

I love museums, but I’m fairly picky about the ones I spend time visiting. My personal interests veer towards history and culture more so than art, and thanks to that natural proclivity I’ve discovered some fairly amazing museums around the world. Any museum I believe is to be treasured because it means that someone or a group of people cared so deeply about a subject ...

My Takeaways From Sailing with Azamara Club Cruises
Azamara cruise ship corsica france

A couple of months ago I had the chance to try a cruise line that was new to me, Azamara Club Cruises. With only two ships in their fleet, they are the very definition of boutique travel and based on what I’d heard, I was very curious. While the sailing was a short one, the time I spent onboard (and o...

Learning All About Alsace on a Strasbourg Food Tour
Strasbourg france 1

My first trip to Strasbourg, France was a couple of years ago while on a river cruise. I enjoyed my visit, but since it was short and my first time in the city it was all about seeing the major sights. That’s one reason why I was so excited to once again spend some time in this gorgeous Alsatian city as part of my drive around the Upper Rhine Valley region. It was ...

Traveling in Your 40s – A Few Ways to Improve the Experience
33698937944 7a92be5cba b

As a dyed I the wool Gen-Xer, I naturally believe that those lucky individuals born between the years 1965-1980 are members of one of the greatest generations history has ever seen. Wedged in between two larger, and more vocal, generations we have quietly plugged away creating the world that we all enjoy today. We didn’t invent the Internet, but we perfected it. Our patronage transformed the $.50 cup of c...

Next Trip: A Different Kind of Celebration in Germany
Hamburg

If you follow me regularly then you’ve no doubt noticed that I tend to spend a fair amount of time in Germany. There’s a good reason for this though; the country is large with so much to see and experience that in all honesty it’s never been the same trip twice. Also, thanks to its position in the center of Europe, Germany is just a natural fit for anyone traveling to Europe whether i...

My Day Visiting But Not Seeing Gibraltar
Gibraltar uk spain

I loved the itinerary on my Abercrombie & Kent Connections Boutique Journey tour of Spain’s Seven Cities for many reasons, but mostly because it included many cities I’d never before visited. From the Alhambra in Granada to the rolling vineyards surrounding Je...

Not To Miss Experiences in Ireland’s Boyne Valley
Kells ireland

Ireland’s Ancient East is an expansive region, but at the heart of the experience is the Boyne Valley. So much more than a simple geographical designation, the valley has played a pivotal role not only in the history of Ireland, but of European civilization in general. This is where you’ll find some of the earliest Neolithic tombs as well as battlefields that decided the regional balance of power for gene...
