There are plenty of direct flights and deals from New York City area airports to Switzerland. With a flight time of just under 8 hours outbound, Switzerland should be a consideration for your next trip. On a recent adventure to the country, I was able to visit 4 […]
A week exploring Scotland is just enough time to whet the appetite and make you want to go back again. I have included a sampling of pictures from a recent trip I took that will hopefully get you excited to plan a Scottish adventure. Food A main reason […]
A week is Scotland is enough time to get a feel for the country and ensure you will start planning a second trip. I decided to fly from JFK into London Heathrow. This added a 4.5 hour train ride after a transatlantic overnight flight but it was worth […]
Stunning seaside towns, incredible food and an all around relaxed atmosphere are just a few reasons to get your travel plans together for a trip to the Puglia region in southern Italy.
One advantage of living in NYC becomes apparent if you want to take a quick trip across the Atlantic. Direct flights from the tristate area to Dublin come in at just under 6 hours.
5 cities, 5 incredible experiences as my dad and I traveled through the Apulia Region of Southern Italy. In addition to the food (which alone is reason enough to make the trip) the walking, history, architecture and people make this an adventure to consider for future travel planning.

A bit of a trek, but well worth it to explore and eat my way through the Apulia Region of Italy.

Do you like Harry Potter and Jesus? If so, put Coimbra on your travel itinerary.
Very much a college town, the city has the University of Coimbra (with early ties to the Jesuits.) Founded in 1290, it’s a UNESCO world heritage site and has the Joanina Library with a collection of books dating back to the 1500s.
