    Dalmatian Odyssey

      In October 2015 we took a trip to the Dalmatian Coast with Pedal and Sea Adventures. We cycled and sailed between the the islands of this idyllic coast as well as stopping in the amazing cities of Split and Dubrovnik at the beginning and end of the tour. Unfortunately the visit to Korcula and […]

    Ireland Golf 2015

    In August of 2015 me and seven of my best buds went on a long anticipated golf tour of Ireland. The weather was perfect and so were the course, the places we stayed, the Guiness we drank and of course the company. Enjoy!

    Dublin & Newgrange

    A few years ago my daughter Lenore was living in Dublin so I decided to drop in for a few days on the way back from a business trip. At that time the Celtic Tiger was in full roar. Dublin was beautiful in the early spring and looked nicer than on any previous or subsequent […]

    Hiking La Garrotxa

    A few years ago Alison was an attendee at the World Energy Conference in Madrid. I decided to tag along so we could spend some time in Spain after the conference, however, while the conference was in session I was going to do some solo hiking. After reading just about everything I could find about […]

    I first visited Hamburg over a decade ago on business and was blown away by the sheer efficiency of this city – everything works! It has a beautiful location with water seemingly everywhere, with the Elbe River on one side and the Alster lakes on the other with canals linking the two. There are numerous distinct areas […]

    England 2010

    The Travel Media of Canada held its 2010 convention in Cardiff, Wales and afterwards I went on a short jaunt to the English Midlands. In Stratford we were treated to a wonderful performance of Romeo and Juliet at the very intimate Swan Theatre. In Birmingham we toured historic back to back houses and visited Cadbury […]

    For some reason Brussels was never on my radar as place I really needed to visit, but once I did it immediately became one of my favourites in Europe. We took the Chunnel from London and spent three days exploring the city and hardly scratched the surface. The Grand Place is a stunningly beautiful complex […]

    For a few years I made regular trips to Hamburg to meet with some clients (and friends) who lived there. On the last visit we flew to London and took the Chunnel to Brussels where we stayed for three days and then took the train to Bremen for a one day stay. While the weather […]

    I visited Cologne as a boy with my grandparents and never forgot the overpowering immensity of its great Gothic cathedral. Recently, due to the vagaries of traveling on points I found myself at Dusseldorf airport with a long layover before heading on to Rome. Not wanting to waste the day I took the train to […]
