Friday, June 12, 2009

The island of Bonaire is a mainstay in top 10 lists for the best diving in the Caribbean, with its favorably slow currents, 100-feet-plus visibility and massive variety of sea life (you’re able to see over 300 types of tropical fish here).

Making Fun Of Dancing Matt

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Pretty funny parody of those oh-so-famous “Where The Hell Is Matt” videos. I present, “Where The Hell Is Shut-in Matt.” (Editor’s Note: I have no relation, other than my first name, to either of these Matts. Thankfully.)

Frommer Watch: Stop Screwing Me

Arthur’s more than little peeved this week, and it’s east to see why. In an apparent kickback arrangement between British mega-retailer W.H.

So You Want To Be A Travel Writer . . .

I was sitting in my regular bedroom at my computer in my quaint, charming, rustic hometown of Brooklyn, New York, with my dog, Wilson, at my feet when I came across David Farley’s article on how to avoid writing bad travel articles.

Who Knew Corsica Was A Haven For Artists?

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Spurred by cheap prices and an easy-going lifestyle, Corsica is emerging as the place in Europe for artists to set up shop.

As the U.S. economy enters its 18th month of the Great Recession and the unemployment rate climbs to 9.4% (and 9.2% in the E.U.), more and more people seem to be giving up and hitting the proverbial road, taking advantage of a forced vacation that will likely be longer than anything they’ll experience again in […]
