Updated: 9/1/2018 | September 1st, 2018 Most of the people who know me know that I love Sweden. It’s filled with beautiful landscapes, lakes, mountains, fjords, buildings, and of course people. If the country didn’t have such a harsh winter, I’d move to the capital city of Stockholm. It’s one of the most beautiful Old World […]
Edinburgh, Scotland is beautiful with its cobble streets, tight quarters, the castle, and the Gothic architecture of many of its buildings. There is history everywhere you look in this city. In this post, I share 8 things you’ve got to see when visiting Edinburgh.
Singapore is often described as a three-day city, as most people hit the few main sites and think there isn’t anything else to see. While the city didn’t scream exciting, crazy, or action-packed to me, you could easily spend a week in Singapore and still find a lot to do. Here’s what I recommend.
Updated: 8/3/2018 | August 3rd, 2018 Chaos. Crowds. Delicious food. Cheap clothes. Wild nightlife. Bangkok has it all. The city was founded after the fall of Ayutthaya in 1767. The new king, Taksin, established a capital in an area that was then called Thonburi. When Taksin’s reign ended in 1782, King Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke reconstructed […]
D.C. is an interesting place. The city is a mix of wealth and poverty. While the members of Congress and those who attend to them spend lots of money, much of the city is quite poor and very dangerous. However, mixed in with that is a big student population that keeps the city lively, tons of tourists visiting from all over the world, and a huge amount of museums and historic sites to visit. Here’s how to spend a day in Washington D.C.
Updated: 4/6/2018 | April 6th, 2018 I thought for this edition of the Saturday City, we’d do something a bit different. Instead of one city, let’s talk about ten. Ten great cities to party in. As travelers, we have nothing but time on the road and, at night when the sightseeing is over, we usually […]
Updated: 04/03/2018 | April 3rd, 2018 The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi is located in the north of the country. Crowded (pop. 6,000,000+), a little polluted, and slightly run-down, it nonetheless is very quaint. Though I did not like Vietnam, I liked Hanoi. A lot. Time and poor rebuilding may have worn down the city. All […]
Updated: 04/01/2018 | April 1st, 2018 I first visited Chicago at the end of my U.S. road trip in 2006. I spent three days there before leaving to explore the rest of the world. I’d always heard a lot about Chicago and was excited to finally see the Windy City (named because of the politicians […]
Updated: 04/01/2018 | April 1st, 2018 One of the great things about running a travel website is that you get to meet other travelers. While in England this summer, I received an offer to explore the English city of Bristol with Heather. Around England, I’d explain my route through the country and people would universally go, […]
Updated: 04/01/2018 | April 1st, 2018 Set off the coast of Belize, Caye Caulker is paradise. It’s small, it’s beautiful, it’s youthful. Everyone here is friendly, and no one moves quickly. There are no cars, only little golf carts, and the island’s motto is “Go Slow.” The tempo will have you running on island time […]
Bordeaux is wonderful. It’s about a 5-hour train ride from Paris and one that takes you through the amazing French countryside. If you love wine, food, and architecture, Bordeaux is a place you should visit on your next trip to France. In this post, I give you suggestions on how to spend your time.
Updated: 03/29/2018 | March 29th, 2018 Chiang Mai is Thailand’s northern version of Bangkok. It’s the second largest city in Thailand, and is the gateway to the jungles and cities of the north. Once a quiet little village, the city has morphed into a major business and tourist center in the last 10 years. Large […]
