Junky Travel Sites for Travel Junkies

Junky Travel Sites for Travel Junkies Junky is the kind of word I'm attracted to, partially because there aren't too many bad habits I have that are hard to kick. But it's the type of word when paired with those like travel and vacation becomes highly desired by all and everyone. Example: "He's such a travel...

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...

Sex Tourism for Women

Sex Tourism for Women We posted a few months ago about a bizarre twist in sex tourism that was rather unexpected: a growing number of women who travel abroad in search of sex. Now, a French film recently released about the topic, Heading South, is creating even more controversy. A fascinating...

Word for the Travel Wise (07/13/06)

Word for the Travel Wise (07/13/06) Word to the wise: Don't go running up and down the island of Jamaica shouting today's vocabulary bit. If what my friend tells me is true and this word only means what it does, then it isn't all that bad. Still, I seriously doubt you'll make any friends carrying on saying...

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...

Pot Spots

Pot Spots We in no way would ever advocate drug use. Personally, I keep away from the stuff as it tends to interfere with my ability to work and focus and remember stuff and helps prevent me, sort of, from writing nonsensical, long run on sentences that seem to go nowhere at all and...

Word for the Travel Wise (05/18/06)

Word for the Travel Wise (05/18/06) Summer time is oh-so near and with the sun ah' shinin' and irie feelings all abuzz I'm sure vacationers will be flocking to the islands as soon the season is officially here. Perhaps they are headed there now, but if you plan on making Jamaica one of your island destinations...

Word for the Travel Wise (04/07/06)

Word for the Travel Wise (04/07/06) Time to get hip to Jamaican patois again. Why? Because my travel agent says so? Duh! Because AirJamica is running ridiculous sales and I'm sure you're dying to save a lickle, right? Then follow my lead and we'll both be jammin' hand-in-hand. Today's word is a Patois word...

Blog Alert: The Pan Collective

Blog Alert: The Pan Collective Since the return of my trip I've been rather hush-hush on speaking anymore about Trinidad & Tobago. Mostly because I figured someone would scream or send a dart to my back if they heard one more story or trip tip about this spectacular island in the Eastern Caribbean,...

Best Cave Hotels

Best Cave Hotels I couldn’t resist this article in The Independent when I came across its tantalizing headline, “Five Best: Cave hotels.” I really enjoyed my first and only night I slept in a cave when visiting the Cappadocia region of Turkey.  The air was a little...

Word for the Travel Wise (01/08/06)

Word for the Travel Wise (01/08/06) Someone invites you to their house for the opportunity to taste delicious home-cooked local cuisine at its finest. You can't resist the urge so you accept the offer, but you're a little concerned about everything. Why? Because you worry about everything. (This doesn't apply...
