For as much whining and moping as I do, I have lived a blessed life. I had the Luck of the Irish to marry, not only a very social, upbeat, and sparkly woman, but one who loves travel. Since then, she’s dragged me by my grumpy hand to all seven continents (my kids too, bless her heart). In these posts I’ll share some of the cool places we’ve gone.

Quest for the Perfect Pizza

Quest for the Perfect Pizza

What makes the perfect pizza? Who is to say? It’s a question for the ages. For me, the perfect pizza is the style an individual likes from childhood. I grew up in upstate New York, in the country-side, with mountains and crystal clear streams. Most of my friends from...

Koalas have no ribs! Amusing hug photos.

Stay at My Place

My wife and I saw Quentin Tarantino's movie "Hostel" on the huge screen at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood a number of years ago.  When my youngest son, then just 20, said he wanted to spend a couple of months in Europe (on his own dime I might add) and planned...

A Pinnacle Moment in Travel

One of the great things about travel is not just in the adventure of going, but, in seeing reminders in TV and movies, and saying, "I've been there!" My family and I went to Egypt before things got politically hot during the Arab Spring. The thing that struck us...
