Athens, Greece is one of my favorite cities and at night it is just as spectacular. A real treat is walking up close to the mountain that dominates the city and having a great meal on the steps. Be sure to be ready to walk a lot as there is so much to see by…
Istanbul, Turkey is one of the most amazing cities of the world. It is a melting pot of religions for the most part living in harmony and at the moment a looking glass into how other Middle Eastern Countries should be. I hope the current President doesn’t ruin it. I was there during the riots…
Riga, Latvia is an amazing old city with a pretty dark past. The old town is quite small but the city is big enough for a full weeks travel. Make sure you visit the ghettos and parks in and around Riga, Latvia. I took the ghetto bike tour and it was fantastic!
Tallin, Estonia is one of those Medieval Cities and absolutely gorgeous. The old town especially is wonderful and the castles forts and checkered history (always being invaded) makes for wonderful storytelling! Again a bike tour is a must!
Frankfurt, Germany is one of those cities that you cannot avoid when traveling to Europe as it is a major hub. I suggest a few days in Frankfurt as it is a beautiful city right on a gorgeous river. The old town mixed with modern architecture is a treat!
Singapore is one of the most modern Asian cities, it has some remarkable architecture and a lot of fun things to do. As it is a very large city, probably the best start to your trip is on one of the buses. I prefer Asian cities that are a little bit behind and have their…
Townsville, Queensland is in the North East Coast of Australia and it is hot. Many people come to Townsville to go to Magnetic Island or one of the other Islands nearby. It is hot all year round and has an amazing mountain dwarfing the city.
Buenos Aires, Argentina was a wonderful trip for me. Got to meet up with a lifelong friend and tour the beautiful city. A lot to see here and the food is incredible (if you like meat). It is a big city to walk in, so I suggest again the bike tour!
Hamilton Island, Whitsunday Islands, Queensland is one of thousands of Islands dotted in the Whitsunday Islands, Queensland. I went to Hamilton Island to do a talk. Hamilton Island is really a family and couples Island, but it didn’t stop me from having a paddle and swim in its pristine waters!
Williamstown, Victoria is now a place my 3 sisters and parents call home. It is a gorgeous seaside village type town across the Westgate Bridge in Victoria Australia. A treat is just walking through the historic old town or taking a ferry to Melbourne City and through the Yarra River into the heart of Melbourne!
