Seven Endangered Species You Can Still See in the Wild

Seven Endangered Species You Can Still See in the Wild There is no doubt that we are fascinated with wildlife. We love to watch diverse and interesting animals, preferably in their natural habitats, and we're often willing to travel to remote places, sometimes at great expense, to see them. If you enjoy the kind of travel that...

Cockpit Chronicles: The airline industry's newest business model: Desperate Housewives.

Cockpit Chronicles: The airline industry's newest business model: Desperate Housewives. There are some advantages to flying a reserve schedule every now and then. I prefer the variety and the thought that just maybe I'll get called out to cover a New York trip to Zurich or Brussels. It's rare, but it has happened before. For April, I didn't fly anywhere I...

Independence days and elephants

Independence days and elephants I've whipped out my International Calendar to see what might be left to tell about November before it slips away from Eastern Standard Time in a few hours. What I see is a whole lot of independence days and a slew of other politically geared occasions. Nov....

Washington's Caribbean Phase

Washington's Caribbean Phase We all know of George Washington as the steadfast, brilliant general who led a nation to independence. He was a fair outdoorsman, sure, doing a little cold water paddling across the Delaware, chopping cherry tree wood to pass the time. But did you know old Georgie kicked it...

Virgin Holidays & Cricket World Cup 2007

Virgin Holidays & Cricket World Cup 2007 Hopeful fans of Trinidad & Tobago's Soca Warriors raced over to Germany for the 2006 FIFA World Cup games and returned without a cup, but with more determination than ever for the next installment in 2010. In the meantime they get to lounge lazily on their sister...

Sounds to Sail to the Islands

Sounds to Sail to the Islands Sit listening to my music collection on party shuffle  for an hour and you'll find I'm all for jarring sound transitions. Follow me closely here. Music is about movement. It's about the flowing, swaying, and gyrating movement of bodies rocking harmoniously on packed...

Barbados Blog

Barbados Blog Every little Caribbean island should have a blog like this one on Barbados. I'd take up the task of exploring and blogging about each myself, if I had the time and money, but for now we can rely on the good old tourism bureaus to point us to over packed tourists spots and...

Divester on Key West and the Caribbean

Divester on Key West and the Caribbean Our Divester friends are always writing about destinations around the world that are ideal for diving, and usually great places to visit whether you are into scuba or not. Willy Volk posted two items of interest in the past week that I thought might be particularly useful...

Barbados Bummer

Barbados Bummer Talk about a downer. Imagine heading out for ten fun days in the sun and instead you find yourself locked in a basement without food or water. That's what apparently happened to a pair of American tourists from Chicago whose trip to Barbados didn't go quite as nicely as...

Tiny Islands in the Sun

Tiny Islands in the Sun I just had lunch with a colleague who was asking me to recommend a good locale for a short winter vacation in a warm, sunny place. With islands on my mind, I returned from lunch to find this great piece in the UK Sunday Times that profiles five Caribbean gems. These tiny...

Photo of the Day: (10/10/05)

Photo of the Day: (10/10/05) Hey, summer is winding down, so I might as well try to get in a nice surf shot before ski pics start rolling in. This cool familial shot by tarikb caught my eye because I really liked the silhouetted scene of two guys (father and son, tarik asks? big brother little...

Photo of the Day: (9/16/05)

Photo of the Day: (9/16/05) Today's POTD comes from TarikB and is a lovely shot of a sunset in Barbados. He captions it, Fishing Boats anchored off Oistins, Barbados. I love the color, and man, wouldn't it be nice to be sitting on the beach right now with the sun going down...and a Corona in youur...

Barbados Jazz Festival Break out your Bermuda shorts and grab a Mai Tai because the Barbados Jazz Festival is coming. The dates are January 10 - 16, 2005 for the 12th annual celebration of foot-stamping jazz in an Caribbean island setting that couldn't be a better antidote to the frozen drudgery...
