Port of San Juan on my mind

Port of San Juan on my mind
I was glad to find the Old San Juan area relatively unaffected by the large fuel storage facility fire, which is the result of 11-fuel storage tanks igniting very early Friday morning October 23, 2009.  The fire is located at the Caribbean Petroleum Corp across the bay about 4 miles to the southwest of where the cruise ships dock in the Port of San Juan PR. Other than the fact cruise passengers will undoubtedly be able to see the smoke plum and there will be no Bacardi Rum factory tours until Monday,...

Review: Papouli’s has fast food other than hamburgers

Review: Papouli’s has fast food other than hamburgers
Want something quick but decidedly different? Papouli’s Cafe and Market in Alpharetta (see map) has Greek-to-go. Order at the counter from a menu with stuffed grape leaves, mousaka or pastitsio with a side Greek Salad and slice of bread. (Your mama would be proud!) They also have gyros, a Chicago style Italian sausage sandwich, a Greek burger and yes, for the diehards in the group — a hamburger. Then find a seat either outside on the sidewalk of the Terraces at Windward shopping center...

Bokbierfestival, Bock Beer Festival, is a three-day beer festival held in de Beurs van Berlage. Bock Beer Festival Bock beer originated in Germany and was traditionally brewed in the autumn.

Miami Wet and Wild: Water Sport Extreme to Mild

Miami Wet and Wild: Water Sport Extreme to Mild
Water sport – low key to high intensity, traditional to extreme, challenging to reinvigorating – the greater Miami area probably has it somewhere. Learning where your sport of choice is located and who provides what is also an ongoing process — aside from the beach and marina locales, one other fact of life is that local entrepreneurs, events and operators tend to come and go with amazing speed sometimes. Especially in these times. credit: Greater Miami Convention & Visitors...

A View From The Top-Places to See Boston’s Skyline

A View From The Top-Places to See Boston’s Skyline
Boston’s  Custom House (3 McKinley Square) (Map)  seemingly watches over Boston Harbor. The original Custom House was completed in 1849 and when the 16-story clock tower was added in 1915, the building became Boston’s first skyscraper. Today, the clock tower is a Marriott Hotel (617-310-6300), but the public can visit the 26th floor observation deck; free guided  visits are offered Sunday-Thursday and Saturdays at 2 PM. Another awesome Boston Harbor view can be found at the Boston’s...

The Rest of Scotland

The Rest of Scotland
This great article from the Skinny really inspired me to think about the great sights of the rest of Scotland outside of Edinburgh. Here are my favourites: Aberdeen – a northern city left to its on devices, it’s known the Granite City, the Grey City, and the Silver City.  Check it out and choose your preferred name. Pitlochry – an adorable little town with fantastic walks, sightseeing, and shops, all in one compact stop just off the main rail line.  Don’t miss their Enchanted...

Review: Todd’s Unique Dining

Review: Todd’s Unique Dining
Vegas dining doesn’t get better than Todd’s Unique Dining, a charming little neighborhood restaurant under the stewardship of Todd Clore, who garnered a national name for himself before undertaking this solo venture. Clore, one may remember, is responsible for turning the mediocre brunch at Bally’s into a national sensation that garnered accolades from everything from Zagats to the Food Channel. He started his culinary career at age 15 as a busboy for a Mexican restaurant in Denver. Immediately,...

Nine Ghost tours in the Atlanta area

Nine Ghost tours in the Atlanta area
I prefer to run into my ghosts on a walking tour rather than a haunted house, that way I have a running chance. You know the old joke about seeing a bear in the woods? I don’t have to be able to fun fast– just faster than you. Well, it applies on ghost tours as well. Seriously, ghost tours have more story in them, and depending on the particular tour, history. Since we have so much history here, there are lots of ghost stories and lots of community ghost tours. Chances are good there’s...

The Mr Putin’s St. Petersburg

The Mr Putin’s St. Petersburg
As you know the former (and maybe the future too) President of Russia Vladimir Putin, who now serves as prime-minister, was born, grew up and worked in St. Petersburg till his leaving for Moscow in 1996. When he was elected a President, local tour operators designed an exursion along Mr. Putin’s places: where he was born; where he lived; where he studied; where he worked. Do you go? It takes you just a few minutes. Mayakovskaya street, 5, one of the oldest maternity houses in Russia, founded...

REVIEW: Restaurante Lust

REVIEW: Restaurante Lust
As I was passing by Real Fábrica at Largo do Rato (map), I hardly miss the small door that took me into one of the new promises Lisbon has to offer on the dining and culture scene. Lust is much more than a Restaurant. Apart from the bar and gourmet shop that they proudly announce, they go much further to create a real special place where the aim is for anyone to feel at home.   At Lust, art and culture sits on your table. Dj’s, cultural nights with stand-up comedy, theatre, dance and music...

Cité Chaillot: The Paris Monument That Could

Cité Chaillot:  The Paris Monument That Could
Paris museums come in all shapes and sizes.  The big ones with their big name artists and paintings get all the love.  Just like anything I suppose.  We as tourists jump on the popularity bandwagon and stand in long lines to see Mona and the Venus di Milo falling into a false sense of smugness as though we have seen it all and can go home now.   The cultural abundance in Paris can be overwhelming, overstimulating and quite frankly, over the top.  Sneaker wearing tourists make their way through...

Gatwick Airport – under new management

Gatwick Airport – under new management
Gatwick Airport has a new owner. BAA has sold it for £1.5bn to Global Infrastructure Partners, which already owns the Docklands located London City Airport. For the first time, Gatwick will not be under common ownership with Heathrow. That may well mean greater competition between the airports. Certainly, Gatwick needs a bit of a shine applied to it. BAA was rumoured to have wanted £2.5 bn for the airport – but that was considered just too much. As it is, it’s taken a year to sell...
