Each post reflects a unique trip, destination, or country. It might be a weekend getaway, a two week trip, or could even be a combination of destinations.

The Big Island of Hawaii, HI, USA

Mele kalikimaka is the thing to say…on a Hawaiian Christmas day! Among other things.

Say what you will, but escaping winter gloom to Hawaiian sunshine in December simply cannot be beat.

Jakarta, Indonesia

The Indonesian capital of Jakarta is not often where most foreign tourists visit. They might think of Bali or a beach. But for this traveler, a mileage run opportunity made itself available. I took it and wound up having a delightful Labor Day 2015 in the process.

Mexico City, Mexico

Take everything you think you know about the Mexican capital and toss most of it away. Because unless you’ve actually been to Ciudad de Mexico, you don’t know jack about it. This is one of the world’s most vibrant and active (not to mention overcrowded) cities…and it’s waiting to show you its treasure trove of history, museums, food, and culture.
