Aah New York, Ain’t it Grand?

Oh New York, I knew even before I arrived that I would love you, but nothing could have prepared me for the spell you would cast over me; the love at first sight mega crush that would grip hold of me and not let go. New York made me want to be thirty different people in one day.

Bath, England: 10,000 Years of History

As pools go, you’d be hard-pushed to find one that’s more spectacular than the rooftop pool at the Thermae Bath Spa in Bath, England. As the water on one side bubbles like lemonade in a glass, and ultimate power showers billow over the backs of closed-eyed bathers, the city’s skyline is put in a magnificent frame.

The Best of Las Vegas!

Now, as some of you may know – I moved to Las Vegas a little over three years ago from Sydney, Australia to take up a position in Viator’s Las Vegas office. I’ve had plenty of time to see the great things Las Vegas has to offer (and the not so great). Here is my version of the Las Vegas Review Journals “Best of Vegas” poll. Whether a local or a tourist, you can’t go wrong with this list!

Orlando: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Now Open!

June 18, 2010 was the date that has been earmarked on my calendar for quite a while. The anticipation had been building for a very long time! Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando had been working almost around the clock for the last 5 years to bring to life characters and scenes from the series of Harry Potter â„¢books written by J.K. Rowling. Not an easy task at all!

CSI: The Experience

When CSI: Crime Scene Investigation started playing on TV 10 years ago, I thought this would be the coolest profession – essentially solving puzzles for a living, albeit quite gruesome ones. Ultimately, I stayed in the travel industry, but now that CSI:The Experience has made its way to Las Vegas, anyone can get a taste of what it would be like to be a forensic scientist without the blood and gore. I went to this attraction at the MGM Grand Hotel last week and had a blast!

Las Vegas: Blackjack, Toroweap and Trekkers

A couple summers ago, some friends and I took a road trip from Texas through L.A. to my beloved Northern California, specifically to my old stomping grounds in Chico. Neither of them had ever been to NorCal, and both love complaining about Texas summers. Needless to say, I was pretty excited about taking them to a place where the air is clean(ish) and the weather is perfect.

Things to Do in Tulum & Quintana Roo

I’ve been to Mexico a dozen times. Maybe more. But in April I took my first ‘family’ trip to Mexico – my wife and I and our two sons, Emmett (4) and Hollis (not quite 1 at the time). We spent one week in and around Tulum, which is about 90 minutes (125km / 78 miles) from Cancun and an hour from Playa del Carmen (the ferry port for nearby Cozumel).
