Ramblings Of A Traveler In Cuba: #1 Getting There

Ramblings Of A Traveler in Cuba #1 GETTING THERE I really really really wanted to go to Cuba for so many reasons I knew of before going, and most reasons I learned after I was there. I couldn’t wait to go to Cuba. I dreamt about it, and read about it. It’s a country that, right now, is unspoiled and virtually untouched by USA tourism. The very thought of going to Cuba made me feel giddy all over – call it a traveler’s sickness. Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean and only 90 miles from Florida. We all know that, I think. However, Cuba is a BIG MYSTERY to most USA travelers because we, meaning you and me without family in Cuba, are ...

Ramblings Of Traveler – BONUS BLOG – Last Mystery Of Vietnam

Last Mystery of Vietnam (a touchy – feely, serious blog) My thrill is traveling to a land that crawls its way into my memories and keeps getting better long after I have returned home. There is a warm, glowing spot in my heart remembering the six weeks I spent in Thailand with all its gaudy, noisy, crazy, bright colors, festivities, wonderful delights, superstitions, and religious fervor running deep in the veins of its followers and culture.

But it’s the magic ...

When cut into on the ground floor of a hotel, the nauseating smell can primate all the way to at least the 15th floor and travels much faster then a hotel elevator.

I think he had to have been somebody’s slave of ancient times that was ...

Ramblings Of A Traveler – SE Asia #2

RAMBLINGS OF A SOUTHEAST (SE) ASIA TRAVELER: Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam #2    ONCE THERE 1) Dos (Acceptable Behaviors of a USA Tourist in SE Asia) BIG DO: You’ll want to spend some quality time in a hammock. If you happen to stay for an extended amount of time, and happen to have a deck on poles out over the water like say in Koh Lanta Old Town, Thailand, and you happen to have two hammocks strung between poles holding the roof of your deck up, you would be totally off your rocker to not curl up and read the paperback book serial killer thriller, “Tiger Lily of Bangkok” by Owen Jones or “Siam Storm: A Thailand Adventure” by Robert A. Webster. Neither are great literary ...
