Cannon Beach – Oregon’s Scenic Wonder!

By: Eric Alexander Hamilton A trip to Cannon Beach, Oregon is like venturing back in time to what the typical American town would have been like in the 1960‘s. While many towns throughout North America have lost their sense of identity with massive overdevelopment, non-stop strip malls, fast-food joints, and endless disconnected suburbs, the town of Cannon Beach purposely chose to retain its original unique identity: a small town in[…]

Two Top Places to Visit in Bali, Indonesia

By: Susan Gerle When I was 16, my high school put on a production of the play South Pacific, set on the Indonesian island of Bali. I’ve wanted to visit Bali since then. That was nearly 50 years ago and I finally made it this year. I know I’ll return. Getting in and out of Bali can be an expensive proposition but it’s well worth it for a holiday. I[…]

The Cleanest City in the World – Singapore!

By: Susan Gerle I heard from many travelers that Singapore is the cleanest place on earth and after visiting the city/ country I would agree. With a population of over 5,000,000 in an area only approximately 710 sq km., it has one of the highest population densities in the world. The powers that be made a good choice to keep the city beautiful. The fines are huge if you dare[…]

Hiking from Boca to Las Animas

Having recently returned from an eleven day vacation to Puerto Vallarta, I have nothing but positive things to say about the plenitude of things to see and do there. That being said, sometimes the busyness of this popular resort mecca can get a little overwhelming, particularly if you are the sort of person that likes to get away from the crowds and the bustle of city life and enjoy the[…]

Hong Kong – The “Wannabe” USA City!

By: Susan Gerle Back in 2002 I made my first visit to China. One of the ah-huh moments, besides standing on the Great Wall and shopping in Shanghai, was to see an exact replica of the White House. A multi-millionaire had it constructed it in the middle of nowhere and back then it was being designated as a private school. Ten years later I am back in China and getting[…]

Cruising The Dutch Antilles – Curacao vs. Aruba

Submitted By: Susan Gerle Cruising has become a safe way of traveling, especially when there is so much unrest in the world right now. Here is a compariso between 2 islands in the Dutch Antilles; Curacao and Aruba. Curacao wants to be a major tourist island, yet when we arrived by ship, the dock was no more than 50 metres long. As we looked to the right over the town[…]

Useful Tips To Avoid Robbery and Rip-Offs in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

By: Susan Gerle I have spent many years traveling and living in Mexico, especially in Puerto Vallarta. Recently I stayed in an all-inclusive resort for the first time. It was also my first experience getting robbed. 99% of the staff at the resorts are as honest as I am. There is always the 1% though that can’t be trusted. I personally feel the reason for robbery in an all-inclusive resort[…]

How To Scoop A Lounge Chair And Other Challenges At All-Inclusive Resorts

By: Susan Gerle I am normally a budget traveler but recently I stayed at an all-inclusive 4 star hotel in Puerto Vallarta for the first time. It was quite an experience. Simple things became a challenge, which surprised me. I thought staying at an all-inclusive meant a stress-free holiday. The first one was getting to the hotel. I know the Puerto Vallarta airport well and usually walk out the door[…]
