When Donald Trump Is The President, Should Canadians Travel To the United States?

I’ve seen a few debates on social media sites as well as some media articles about whether Canadians and other non-Americans should “boycott” the United States with our business and/or personal travel? Those who say we shouldn’t boycott, say that it will hurt ordinary Americans.  Or the non-Trump supporters need us more than ever.  Or […]

Walking Tours on YouTube

Shea recently told me a great tip – YouTube has numerous walking/running tours that you can put on your TV while using your treadmill. What a great way to make time on the treadmill more interesting!

My Trip Advisor Review of @SandosCaracol #allinclusive Eco Resort (with bonus pictures)

It’s still pending approval on Trip Advisor but I thought I might as well post my review of Sandos Caracol Eco-Resort, the all-inclusive we just stayed at here as well (with bonus photos, external links, and a few other edits/additions)… [Edit: This might not end up being my Trip Advisor review after all.  I got […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Bull Fight (February 2000)

.@SandosCaracol – One Week From Today!

Less than ten days to go… “Mexico” – Cake

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds – Three Concerts on the Beach @davetimmexico

It was about a week before we left for the Dominican Republic in February 2015 that I stumbled upon the news that Ringo Starr was performing at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, not far from the resort we’d be at. After some quick discussion, I ended up buying tickets for my parents, Shea and […]
