Nov 15th 2010 7:19PM Thanks for the warning! I was planning on travelling with my 7-month-old baby to Antigua and Lake Atitlan in December!! This info is really valuable to me - and our safety!
Jun 7th 2010 5:06PM My friend works for Andaz and he's getting me a reservation for their 5th Avenue hotel in August. Can't wait to see it!
Feb 19th 2010 10:37AM Now, is this the set date? There has been so MANY conflicting stories and pushback issues on The Thompson Hotel. I'll cross my fingers! Can't wait to cover / review / write about their opening. Now...what about that Gansevoort Toronto project? Heard anything about that lately?
Jan 31st 2010 7:43PM I believe the only hotel inside Old San Juan is El Convento. I think I would much rather stay within the old city and save on transportation. I like the convenience of being able to step out and be where I need to be :) The Verdanza looks well maintained, though.
Jan 27th 2010 9:51PM Great article, Aaron! My travel experiences have equipped me for the hardship(s) our family had to endure this year - from my grandmother's passing to our home renovation fiasco (a crooked contractor running away with our money). And although I'm angry that the stolen money could've been used for a round-the-world trip, I also realized that living within your limits (certainly something we all do when we travel) is most important. After all, there's a Chinese proverb that goes, "To know you have enough is to be rich..."
Oct 6th 2009 11:46AM Ok, since I am a total 80's freak, can I just add some from my obscure list? I Ran by A Flock of Seagulls, Life in a Northern Town by Dream Academy, The Paris Match by The Style Council, Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty, Englishman in New York by Sting.
And oh, I recently watched U2 in Toronto, and they totally rocked "Still Haven't Found..." and "Where the Streets Have No Name"!

Jun 3rd 2009 1:38PM I took a cab once in Paris when their Metro was on strike. Actually, I had a pretty good experience. My cab driver told me he used to work for Euro Disney but got "disenchanted". He was really nice to me. First, I didn't have enough Francs (yes, it was quite some time ago), so he let me pay half in Francs and half in Dollars. Then, I didn't have enough money to cover my fare, but he was ok about it.

Jun 2nd 2009 1:43PM In light of the Air France tragedy, I wish him luck! Maybe this is what I need to calm my recently developed fear in flying. Too many airline crashes in the news lately...
