My 10 Favorite Beaches in the World

Red Sand Beach on Maui, Hawaii

I love beaches—what’s not to love, after all? There’s sand (or rocks), blue skies, and the sound of lapping water. What’s not in the picture for me though, are overcrowded—those places with a Hard Rock Cafe across the street and heaving thongs of half-naked beachgoers piled onto the sand. Those beaches may be beautiful, but …

My 10 Favorite Experiences

This the ninth installment in a series for my 4th Travelversay Celebration. This was a very hard list to assemble. I’ll be honest, if I wrote this list on a different day, I might come up with a different order or maybe different experiences altogether. I ended up picking a list of things which I …

My 10 Favorite Nature Sites

This the fifth installment in a series for my 4th Travelversay Celebration. In many ways, this list was easier than creating a list of historic places. Natural sites and national parks tend to be much larger and you have to get out of the city to experience them. Most of the sites on this list …

My 10 Favorite Historical Sites

This the fourth installment in a series for my 4th Travelversay Celebration. This was an extremely difficult list to compile. How do you evaluate how historic something is? Where do you put the boundries around it. Most European and Asian capitals have a very deep history, so trying to pick and choose was hard. The …

My 10 Favorite SCUBA Sites

This the third installment in a series for my 4th Travelversay Celebration. Of all the lists in this series, this is the one that I might be the least confident about. I’ve done a fair amount of diving (about 100 dives) but I am a far cry from some of the real professionals out there. …
