When It Comes to Language – “Speaking Perfectly” Is Your Enemy

I’m from the United States and, many years ago, lived in Mexico on a college exchange program. I went there on a spur-of-the-moment decision and stayed for almost four months. When I arrived, I could barely say the word ‘taco,’ but after a few weeks of intensive 3-hour-a-day classes, I began to pick up the […]

Hvar and Split – Fun in Croatia

Love means hiking into the jungle with your partner

Many moons ago, Tom posted about little things he’d learned from traveling. His random observations prompted me to write a post about things I’ve learned traveling with him. That was in 2011.

Plitvice – It was like Magic

I am not a National Park ‘groupie’, but the Plitvice Lakes National Park blew me away. (Yes, I think Yosemite is spectacular and Yellowstone is a must visit for nearly everyone, but in general exploring Tokyo, or Paris, or the coastal villages of Uruguay, are just more me.) In June, my wife and I went […]

Top Underrated Vacation Destinations (According to ChatGPT and Me)

I’m sick of traveling to the same places everyone else goes to.

7 Best Sights to See in Windhoek, Namibia

The capital city of Namibia, Windhoek, is a place with a heavy mixture of cultures and a lot of different things to explore. As a fairly underrated travel destination, I feel like Namibia deserves some more credit. Having only been independent for a little over thirty years, German culture (and German people), English culture (and […]
