Rediscovering Munich Through Its Food Scene

Fifteen years is a long time by anyone’s reckoning and that’s how long it had been since my first (and last) visit to Munich. The thing is, I have no idea why it took me so long to return. I’m in Germany at least once or twice a year, but for some reason the capital of Bavaria had somehow remained off of my to-do list. There’s no reason for it, I loved my first time in the city…

Why Augsburg Should Be The Next City You Visit in Germany

Walking into Augsburg from the train station is a slow progression back through time. One starts with the modern era with coffee shops and McDonald’s but, before long actually, glimpses of the past start to take shape. The curiously serpentine route of the old town and colorful buildings so rich in design, one knows immediately they belong to a different era…

Route 66 – What Surprised Me About the Drive

I spent a lot of time preparing for my epic Route 66 drive, probably too much to be honest. I mean, there’s only so much research you can do before it all becomes pointless, but it helped me assuage my concerns that I would miss something along the way. Tackling the entire route in less than two weeks, while that sounds like a lot of time in practice it felt like I was racing. I still …

The St. Anthony Hotel & The Qualities I Look For in Any Hotel

I was about to write a fairly normal review of what is truly an exceptional hotel, the St. Anthony in San Antonio. As I thought about it a little more though, I decided instead that I would use my experience at this property, part of Marriott’s Luxury Collection, to share some of the most important aspects of any great hotel. Not every hotel is made the same and, believe me, I certainly don’t enjoy…

Charmed by Quirky Austin, Texas

We’ve all heard about “Keeping Austin Weird,” and the news-making SXSW event that takes place in the city every year is the stuff of legend. Austin does indeed exist in its own little bubble, one made up of food trucks and live music, but also of outdoor adventures and fun experiences. I was excited to visit Austin…

Texas Road Trip – Austin

This week I’m once again working with Marriott International and my good friend Brendan Van Son, but this time instead of Route 66 we’re exploring more of the great state of Texas. Although I’ve visited a couple of times in the past, I’ve never really experience very much of the state which is why I was so excited for this new adventure. The final stop on our drive around the state was also new to me, the country’s Capital of Cool – Austin. I still find it odd I hadn’t…

Texas Road Trip – Houston

This week I’m once again working with Marriott International and my good friend Brendan Van Son, but this time instead of Route 66 we’re exploring more of the great state of Texas. Although I’ve visited a couple of times in the past, I’ve never really experienced very much of the state which is why I was so excited for this new adventure. The first city on my trip was Houston, a destination that I don’t think gets …

4 Reasons to Love Monaco That Don’t Involve Gambling

It’s not everyday that we are made to feel like rock stars, that we can walk along a stately boulevard with the world’s most famous and well-heeled elite. But then again, Monaco isn’t an everyday kind of place, it’s something special and most certainly unique. Last year I had the unique opportunity to visit many spots along the French Riviera two different times while sailing on cruises. The specific itineraries were a little different, but each ship stopped in a destination I was excited to experience, Monaco. While the specific experiences on each trip…

Favorite Moments Reconnecting with Rome

Until just a few months ago, my opinion on Rome was fairly muted. I had only visited once before and that was for 1 day many years ago. Somehow I had missed returning until late last year when, in the span of just a couple of months, I found myself in the Eternal City not once, but twice. In the process, I discovered a city that I very quickly fell in love with, from its delicious food to the inviting plazas and of course the history found around every corner. Those trips quickly erased years of travel neglect and instilled …

The Joy of Revisiting Reykjavik in Iceland

I first visited Reykjavik in 2012; what now seems like a million years ago. On that first trip to Iceland I was introduced to some of the island country’s most famous sights, both natural and man-made, and an intense love affair with this remote destination was born. Since then I have returned three additional times with no plans of stopping, and for the most part I have explored new areas of the country each time, delving deeper into …
