Q/A Second Part of What Some of You Have Asked Me

  Do you like to garden? Or to design gardens? I like to pick flowers in the gardens. I like to sit in beautiful gardens. I admire my mom's garden. I do not mind gardening but it is not something I think to do instead I do it out of necessity. I like to take photos of gardens. Do I like to design gardens? Not as much as I like buying garden elements.         What is Yann’s occupation? Private long term real estate investor.     Other than family and friends what do you miss m...

Traveling solo in your 20s

In my first year post-graduation, I had time, potential, and no clue what to do with myself. The options were endless, and the only thing I knew was that I wanted to travel. The early 20s were a confusing time of life for me, and at the time I had a much better idea of the things I didn’t want to do than what I did. While millennials are #blessed to have more readily available options for personal growth and career development than prior generations, the sheer number of choices can be overwhe...

If you love sea urchin, please make this!

Hitchhiking the Sierra Madre

Best case scenario: I’m arrested. Worst case scenario: My head washes ashore in Acapulco. There’s something about riding in the bed of a pickup with seven passengers, a dozen bags, a hundred pounds of honey and around $30,000 worth of assorted drugs that really makes you question your immediate future. Especially when the pickup’s well-armed driver treats every one of the Sierra Madre del Sur’s hairpin turns as an opportunity to meet Jesus. So maybe there’s some wiggle room here. Best case scena...

Thailand is among the most talked-about destinations on the planet — though what people have to say varies dramatically. Some travelers come home claiming to have found themselves on long, white-gold beaches. Others turn up their noses at the Thai islands, claiming they’ve been overrun by backpackers. Still others rave about the diving, mountain scenery, and world-class cuisine — it all depends on where you go. Whether your interests align with nature or culture, early mornings or late nights...

Another Airline Starts Offering Free Internet, How Long Until That’s World Standard?

When I started predicting seven years ago that inflight wifi would be free within 10 years (so by 2022), people thought I was crazy. However since that time JetBlue introduced free inflight internet and Aer Lingus has announced usage-capped free wifi. Southwest, Delta and Alaska now offer free inflight messaging. Delta CEO Ed Bastian says they'll do it in a year or two so by 2021. Another airline has just launched free wifi. Continue reading Another Airline Starts Offering Free Internet, How L...

Best cities in the US for a cannabis

The number of states that allow recreational cannabis is rapidly growing. It’s inspiring a new class of travelers — the cannabis class — to get out of their homes to visit places where weed is warmly embraced. Even for the least experienced, the legal experience is a curiosity for people passing through on pleasure or business. Yet not all cities are created equal. Some cities in recreational states don’t allow sales while others lack the infrastructure to have a solid selection of shops or ...
