Where to stay in Da Nang – the best areas and most notable hotels

Da Nang is increasingly becoming a travel hotspot in Southeast Asia. Located midway between Hanoi and Saigon, this Vietnamese city is geographically blessed with a river and sea front, with mountains in the backdrop. It wasn’t that long ago that travellers bypassed Da Nang on the way to and from Hoi An. Nowadays Da Nang has become a destination in itself. var stg = new Object(); stg.crt=”84430634983627″;stg.version=”1.05″; stg.id=stg.name=”adgshp1276308591″; stg.Width=”728px”; stg.Height=”90px”;stg.RefKey=”39SO9pBljfovnU544wQNvw==”;stg.AutoScrollSpeed=…

Living the Country Music Star Lifestyle at the New JW Marriott Nashville

I don’t mind country music, far from it, but I’m also certainly not an aficionado of the genre. Sure, I’ve seen Dolly Parton twice in concert, but it’s Dolly! She’s so much more than a country music star, she’s an entity unto herself. That being said, attending high school in Southwest Virginia where our prom theme song was Garth Brooks, it’s a style of music I have known well for a very long time. That’s one of many reasons why I was so excited…

The Green Corridor – Singapore’s former railway line that’s now a walking path

I’m a big fan of urban walking, and Singapore – being the urban planning masters that they are – are planning to create one of the world’s greatest walks along a former railway. Singapore and Kuala Lumpur were once connected by a direct railway, which ran from Keppel Road near Downtown Singapore to the Kuala Lumpur Station. I took this train from Singapore in 2009, and it was a pleasant alternative to taking the bus. The railway was closed in 2011, and the service was replaced with a cross-bridge shuttle …

The Best Cafe in Lisbon – Cafe da Garagem

It really is the best cafe in Lisbon. We figured this out as soon as we stepped inside. The place is relaxed, well-decorated and offers comfy chairs perfectly positioned in front of huge windows overlooking the city below. There’s a great balcony with tables, too. I think the view from this cafe is one of the best views of the city by far. The food and drink here are excellent and cheap. We enjoyed coffee followed by a bottle of…

Visiting the Golden Bridge in Vietnam – the bridge held by giant hands in the mountains

If you follow any travel-related news sites you’ve probably seen a photo of a bridge held by giant hands in the mountains. This is the Golden Bridge at Ba Na Hills, near Da Nang in Vietnam. The Golden Bridge opened in June 2018, and it wasn’t long before it starting making the news. The first time I saw it was from this Instagram photo, which might have been the image that made it go viral. …

Wrap Up: Great Loop 2018 Cruising Season – Florida’s ICW

With our arrival to Jacksonville, we consider this 2018 Great Loop cruising season to be a wrap. When we set off from Miami in April, we had intentions of making it to the Chesapeake by summer to escape hurricane season. But fatigue from the months prior building up from Hurricane Irma, the submerged channel marker incident and a rapid RV trip to Texas caught up with us. When we got to Ft. Pierce for a month long stay and took on a remodeling project that drug on – we knew getting that far north was just not in the …

The remote part isn’t everyone of course, yet watch enough YouTube or read enough blogs and you’ll find there are more people selling a particular lifestyle than can actually live it. Reminds me…

Kunming, China in 4 Steps & Why You Need To Know About This Important City

The only reason I had heard of Kunming was thanks to one of my oldest friends. She and her husband adopted their daughter from Kunming years ago, and for some reason it’s a name I never forgot. So, when Cathay Pacific and I started working on what spots in China we should highlight, that’s immediately what came to mind. After a little research, I was definitely intrigued and a project was created. I’m working with Cathay Pacific to bring …
