    Our African Safari in Zambia

    So, you want to go on safari in Africa. But where? To say that the continent is vast is a gross understatement. Africa holds more than 20 percent of the Earth’s total [...]

    Road Trip to New Mexico

    One of my best friends is living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for several months to complete a project -- and I thought, what a perfect excuse for a road trip! “I was surprised, as always, by how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt. The world was suddenly rich with possibility.” --- Jack Kerouac, On the Road [...]

    Fred Astaire, Winston Churchill, Lauren Bacall, and Howard Hughes pop out from basement grates, stroll through shrubs, and pose for guests visiting a certain Spanish Colonial home in Key West. Who are they? The Hemingway cats, all descended from Ernest's original tomcat, Snowball, who had six-toed paws. [...]

    How much do you know about Irish whiskey? If it's not much, that's not surprising, since the industry has come back from what some termed 'the edge of extinction' on the international market. [...]

    Turning Two in Ireland

    October 10, 2017 // 14 Comments

    My blog hit its second anniversary while I was in Ireland for a travel blogging conference, TBEX Europe. There's a symmetry to this for me: as a traveler delving into a new country for the first time; as a writer and lifelong lover of literature arriving in the home of James Joyce, W.B. Yeats, Oscar Wilde, and George Bernard Shaw;  as a student in the business of blogging, here to learn more. [...]

    Walking Safari: Day One

    August 1, 2017 // 29 Comments

    We walked single-file out of the Camp Tena Tena just after dawn on a Sunday morning. There were six of us. In the lead, Chris carried the rifle, followed by Braston our guide. I came next, then my daughter, Catherine, my sister Carolyn, and finally Bishod, guide in training. To walk the savannah, down, up and over empty oxbow lakes, and then step into the cool shade of a grove of ebony -- it's like that. You feel Africa close. [...]

  • Wind Surf cruise ship, windsurf sailing ship
    Private yachts flock to the smaller British Virgin Islands and St. Barth's. There's a reason for this: they are home to some of the most beautiful beaches and water in the Caribbean. Floating in crystalline water and watching the clouds pass overhead is deeply relaxing. I've just returned from St. Martin and a week-long cruise on Windstar's Wind Surf on their Yachtsman's Caribbean itinerary. It was perfect. [...]
