Punta del Este: A Rainy Weekend In Paradise

Three months flew by and before I knew it, I had to renew my tourist visa for Buenos Aires. The wonderful thing about Bs. As., other than the beef and beauty, is that the city is across the river from Uruguay. A one-hour ferry ride got me and my friends to Colonia, but […]

For me at least, it’s worth an investigation. Drifting around Twitter-ville recently, I stumbled across this intriguing word. My predictability took over, and I […]

Come On Everybody And Drop Your Diets, We’re Heading To Mexico City For The Weekend

If you are bored and don’t know what to do this weekend, go to Mexico City. I know it sounds crazy. Most of my friends cocked their heads to one side with eyebrows raised when I told them I had done just that one weekend, but it’s worth it. The […]

Nicaragua: Costa Rica Without The Rica

I had some relatively unfamiliar free time the other day and found myself reading an article titled “Cheap but Chic Destinations.” I have to admit, “chic” is not included in my vocabulary, but it was “cheap” that reeled me in. I sifted through the mandatory sentences that you would expect to […]

Bad news for travelers to Machu Picchu this week (I guess it depends on how you look at it though). Heavy rains in Peru have caused widespread mudslides, one of which has blocked the train route from Cuzco to the famous ruins. But not to worry, according to reports, the […]
