17 Morocco insider travel tips (and how I got thrown off a camel)

Snake charmer of Marrakech

  It was just after 5:00am when the day’s first prayer call startled me from a deep sleep.

12 Havana insider travel tips and highlights

Havana_Che Guevara

If you haven’t been, you must go. The city of Havana, in spite of its 50-years of neglect, is stunning. Withering facades of colonial buildings with colorful peeling walls, vintage cars that have outlived most humans and the city with so much charm – it’s everything we hoped it would be. Here’s a collection of tips…

9 Extraordinary, small ship cruises that you probably didn’t know existed (until now)

While Celebrity Cruises announces yet another mega-ship breakthrough by unveiling  Celebrity Edge, I’ll remind you that bigger isn’t always better. Don’t let me mislead you, Edge looks stunning, and is clearly a breakthrough in modern luxury cruising. But lavish spas, Broadway-style productions, wave-pools and even skating rinks are not always attractive amenities to everyone. If…

8 Things we’ll experience in Havana (before it goes back to the future)

Havana-Cuba

Stepping off the plane will be like stepping back in time. And we can’t be more excited. What’s lured this couple to Cuba is quite a contrast to what we and most Canadian snow birds have come to love about this island. Every year Cuba invites us to exchange our winter coats for warm white…

Our Uber driver has us tucked safely into the back seat of his Lexus. And within a few moments of navigating a terminal plugged with cabs, we finally emerge onto a freeway leaving this cities airport behind us.
