  • Channel Road Inn: Santa Monica, California

    It's always a treat to find an unexpected property in an area that most people visit and stay in high rise hotels. Although many of those properties sit right on the beach and offer a lot of amenities, sometimes it's just plain nice to stay in a cozy, comfortable spot that feels more like home. The Channel Road Inn is just one of those places.

  • Angouleme: Balcony of the Southwest, Part One

    In November of 2005, only a couple of months after returning from Ghana, I was off again on a journey to Angouleme, France to attend and speak at a computer gaming conference, this time on “The Role of Computer Games in Bridging the Digital Divide.”

  • Five Coffee Bars: From Coast to Coast

    Five coffee shops to check out, two in New York in Albany and Manhattan, another in Portland, Maine, one in Chicago, Illinois and finally on the west coast, a coffee shop in Seattle, Washington that is not a Starbucks!

  • Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

    Blend the pearly sands of Florida with a dash of Atlantic City and a pinch of Gatlinburg and you’ve got the delights of Myrtle Beach.

  • Dog Mountain: St.Johnsbury, Vermont

    Dog Mountain came to our attention when Susie and I were at Camp Gone to the Dogs.  The proceeds from an auction at the end of our week at camp were dedicated to the support of Dog Mountain in northeastern Vermont near St.Johnsbury. Unfortunately our schedule did not allow for a visit on this trip, since we were traveling up the western side of the state into Canada on our way to Montreal.

  • The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Cleveland, Ohio

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has a huge collection of the personal artifacts from almost all the Rock and Rollers you know and love. This includes the musical instruments, cars, vans, clothes, advertising, handwritten song lyrics, gold records, jewelry, and much, much more.

  • Hotel Hershey: Hershey, Pennsylvania

    How sweet it is! Welcome to the Hotel Hershey, a 1930's property that is a member of the Historic Hotels of America. I think most of us Boomers grew up on Hershey's chocolate – I know I'm still addicted! So why not celebrate your sweet tooth with a visit to a town built on chocolate that has a gorgeous hotel with charm, elegance and a variety of activities?

  • The Isle of Capri

    Capri is an island in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy. This article provides snapshots of four restaurants in the main town also called Capri.

  • Munich – City of Lifestyle

    Munich is the largest city in the Bavarian state of Germany.  It ranks as the third largest city followed by Berlin and Hamburg.    Of all the cities in Germany, I find Munich to be the most “tour-friendly” since I can just walk or bicycle myself around town.  Street maps are an easy read though always on a first visit to any international destination, I enjoy taking the “hop on hop off” bus tour to get a true overview of the city and mark those destinations that I wish to return to explore further.
