Changing of the Guard at the Presidential Palace, Quito, Ecuador

Quito enjoys a fair share of fame. Its elevation of 9,200 feet makes it the second highest administrative capital city (after La Paz, Bolivia) and the highest legal capital in the world. It is also the only capital located directly beneath an active volcano, Pichincha, which erupted as recently as 2006, sprinkling ash over the [...]

A Symphony of Animals, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

While my words may have painted an intriguing picture of the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, there is nothing like video to get a true feel for a place, so I’ve put together a video of many of the animals I saw during my recent cruise and set it to music. Hope you enjoy. www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lFQ8NBZz64 Can’t [...]

On safari in the Serengeti of Africa we encountered a lion sleeping with his head hidden behind [...]

Guayaquil, Ecuador – Dangerous Destination or Paranoia?

Tunes and Tales in Gatlinburg, Tennessee

On my way back to Atlanta to deal with the dreaded taxes (for 2010) I took a slight detour to visit my friends Ruth Barber and Keith Watson, who live near Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Since the city is built on tourism and offers a myriad of Disney-like attractions and rides, I’ve always found it a bit [...]

Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo

Faithful readers of Hole In The Donut Cultural Travel know that I am no fan of all-inclusive resorts, so when Iberostar Resorts invited me to be part of a press trip to Mexico’s Riviera Maya, I thought long and hard before accepting. My previous experiences with all-inclusives have left a bad taste in my mouth [...]
