  1. Ken in South Africa

    From the Top to the Bottom of the Food Chain in South Africa

    $0.00

    In March, I had the amazing opportunity to attend a business retreat with Virgin Mobile & Airlines founder Richard Branson on his private island in the Caribbean, Necker Island. At the retreat, the entrepreneur attendees shared valuable business lessons and made strong connections through our relevant career and life experience. A genuine connection that I made was with my roommate, Etienne Pretorius, a native of South Africa. Our relationship would lead me to an amazing journey to South Africa.

    Saint Augustine, Florida

    $0.00

    I have strong memories from my childhood vacations to Keystone Heights in north central Florida to visit my dad’s mom and family. Once each trip we would head off to Saint Augustine in my great- uncle’s Cadillac. I remember the huge old fort, the smell of the ocean, and the trees of unknown origin. Last winter, we stopped for an afternoon on our way to Seabrook Island, South Carolina. My return trip brought back these great memories and much more.

    Madrid, Spain: A Step Back in Time

    $0.00

    As a young teen, I spent my first three high school years in Madrid, Spain. My father was a career USAF officer and we were stationed in Madrid.  I always dreamed as a young woman of returning, not realizing that once my sons flew away to college, I would fly away as a flight attendant for a major airline.  My first assignment as a new graduate was to Madrid! I was thrilled, not only to visit Madrid but also to Barcelona, Seville and many other Spanish cities.

    $0.00

    What happens when the worst happens and you get sick or injured on vacation? If your condition is so severe that you can’t fly back on a commercial airline then you will need to book an air ambulance to get home. Most likely this isn’t an area that you have thought about or have any background knowledge on. So, what are the questions to ask, and do’s and don’ts you need to know before booking an air ambulance?

    The Queen Mary 2 Voyage - Everything You Hoped for in Luxury Cruising: Part 3

    $0.00

    The everyday food onboard ship is absolutely amazing!  Kudos to the Executive Chef, his sous-Chefs, and “the lines”,  plus all the kitchen workers who so diligently produced fine food at every meal.  Breakfast is a wonderful mixture of choices – the traditional English fare, solid, well cooked and tasty (bacon being the biggest treat it seemed!).  There were the Continental breakfasts more on the French style, and then the hearty German ones laden with processed meats and cheeses.  It seemed that everyone subscribed to the English tradition of eating a hearty breakfast to set you up for the rest of the day.

  9. Dr. Manyak on the Tiputini

    Visit the Enchanted Forest

    $0.00

    Ecuador is a small gem of a country with picturesque Quito nestled in the Andes bisecting the unique Galapagos Islands and some of the most biodiverse rainforest in the world.  A recent site visit to the easternmost part of the Ecuadorian Amazon exposed me to the amazing flora and fauna of this ecosystem, now under increasing pressure to be developed because of its oil reserves.  Searching for a suitable site to send nationally-selected Eagle Scouts for the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA), Tiputini seemed to be a great destination. Long experience with expedition medicine required some advance reconnaissance for me to assure safety.

    California Highway 1 Discovery Route Morro Bay Part Two

    $0.00

    Once I left Tognazzini’s Dockside, I checked into my accommodations at Harbor Front Suites. Actually, there was no check-in as I was provided with a pass code to enter my condo. It was in a private complex complete with a garage, which also had a code. It was really funny not having a card or keys, as my rental car also was keyless. It’s a new day, Boomers!

    Deadly Snake Bite

    $0.00

    One great fear for travelers in tropical or semi-tropical climates is a venomous snake bite.  Though relatively rare, venomous snake bites do account for about 40,000 deaths worldwide, many of them in rural areas of underdeveloped countries.  Pit vipers are the source of many bites but most have low death rates.  Although all snake bites are potentially dangerous, highly venomous snakes require urgent and specific attention.  I was contacted to assist with just such a snake bite right before Christmas.

    ZIKA – The Latest Emerging Virus

    $0.00

    Just when you have gotten over the Ebola scare (though you will hear about it again), here comes another viral infection though spread by mosquitoes.  Zika virus was first identified in Uganda in 1947 in monkeys and the first verified human infection occurred in 1968.  Since then it has smoldered in countries near the equator where 2 strains have evolved, one in Africa and one in Asia.  The first infections outside of Africa and Asia occurred in Micronesia in 2007.  Since then, the virus has spread throughout the southern Pacific islands and arrived in South America a few years ago.  Dense populations of both humans and the vector mosquito has caused Zika to explode in Central and South America.  At the time of this article, about 20 cases have been reported in the US, all from people who traveled to areas where the disease is present (such as Brazil).
