The Good, the Bad, and the Gracias's – Colombia

Here I am! Yeh, I know it’s been a bit too long. I left you without a Drop Me Anywhere ending. I seemingly went under the radar and, for all you knew, decided to go live with a lost tribe in the Amazon (would you be surprised?). Or, perhaps Tarantulina Jolie decided she no longer […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Thank-yous – Australia

Horse Racing

It’s time again for the final article on the current location, always entitled The Good, the Bad, and the Thank-yous. The location? Well it’s a bit murky as you chose the Big Rum Bottle which is actually in Bundaberg, Australia. There’s not a whole lot to Bundaberg except for the rum distillery, so you got […]

The Good, the Bad and the Cam Ons – Vietnam

Halong Bay

It’s here, the end of our Vietnam adventure; and an adventure it’s been. I’d say that, next to India, this has been the most challenging location. Sure, the language barrier was a big part of it. While the younger generation of Vietnamese learns English in school, they have little opportunity to use it as it […]

The Good, The Bad and The Thank you’s – India

Taj Mahal

It’s time for the final article on India (actually, well-past time thanks to a crashed computer which will cause my ever dwindling funds to dwindle further). This is where I tell you what was good and what was was not-so-good, as well as thanking those who helped me along the way. I also provide all […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Köszönöm’s

Parliament Building

It’s that time again; time for the last article in this series and, as always, it’s The Good, the Bad, and the Thank-you’s. While I’ll stay in Budapest for a couple more weeks until I leave for the next location you’ve chosen (have you voted? Still a couple more days left), this will be the […]

The Good, the Bad and the Dankeschöns

As is now tradition, I close out this series with The Good, the Bad and the Thank-yous, or, in this case, the Dankeschöns (see, my German is getting better). This is where you’ll find a wrap-up of what I thought was good, what I thought was not-so-good, and my thanks for those who helped me along […]

Gratitude

Thank You

I would like to give thanks for a few things.

First, I’m thankful for wheels on luggage. I know it’s hard to believe but, a long time ago in a galaxy not so far away, people were expected to carry their bags. Yup, while cavemen had invented the wheel so many years ago, it took millions more to get them put on luggage. That, my friends, is the definition of “eternity.”

The Good, the Bad and the Gracias’s

I’ve got a secret; I wasn’t thrilled to be going to Mexico. I’ve been there before – many times. From working on cruise ships and visiting many of the ports, both on the Pacific side and the Caribbean side, to my time in meeting planning when I worked for a week each in Cancun and […]

The Good, the Bad and the Thank-you’s – Ireland

Today I get to tell you about what was good (or, dare I say, great), bad (or perhaps terrible) and who deserves thanks for helping to make this trip unforgettable. These are people and places you should make every effort to see if you do a similar trip. I’m also providing you with a list […]

The Good, The Bad and The Thank-You’s – Oregon

Cathedral Park

It’s my final day in the Beaver State (yes, that’s their real nickname) and I head out to explore downtown St. John’s which is a neighborhood of Portland. Portland has many “neighborhoods,” you see. There’s “North,” Northwest,” the “Pearl District” and many more (Mr. Rogers would have a tough time figuring out where he lived). […]
