The National Art Museum of Catalonia (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya) is one of the great museums of Barcelona which is saying a lot (dare I say this is in Spain?). The city is teeming with any number of iconic museums and great artists: Miró, Dali, Picasso, not to mention Gaudí who left an ongoing legacy [...]

Biscotti is an old friend of mine. We go way back. Having now traveled to Italy I learned that biscotti has been holding out on me. He’s never introduced me to his BFF Vin Santo (Holy Wine). I guess that’s where the old Italian saying comes from, ¨They go together like biscotti and Vin Santo.¨ [...]

In previous Suh-Weet Shots, I showed off the cliffs of Ireland and a beautiful old Irish castle, both on the west coast. Of course, the most renowned thing to see in western Ireland are the cliffs of Moher. Steep dropoffs into the cold North Atlantic are seen from the lookout platform. If I’m being 100% honest, they [...]

Today is my niece’s birthday so for today’s Suh-Weet shot I thought I would post a photo from our trip together to Greece. During my career break, I had the chance to travel with her for three weeks around the country. We packed in a full itinerary: Crete, the windmills of Mykonos, a sunset in Mykonos, [...]

Traveling around Umbria, Italy was a pleasant surprise. With places like Rome and Tuscany getting most of the attention, it’s easy to overlook many of Italy’s other regions. I stayed in Gubbio, a small town to the northeast of Perugia. Known for its stone architecture throughout the town and its Corsa dei Ceri festival in [...]

As I’ve mentioned before there aren’t many bad sunsets in Greece. So, after you’ve checked out the windmills on Mykonos, head a little further down to get a seat in a bar or restaurant to enjoy the sunset. I captured this on my trip to Greece with my niece. We had spent this day at [...]

After you’ve spent a day at the red beach on Santorini, head over to one of the many cliffside restaurants for a sundowner and a seafood dinner. While traveling in Greece, you almost can’t find a bad place to see the sun set, or at least be ready to see the sun rise. I guess [...]

I don’t have much to say about this photo. To me it’s a quintessential shot of Paris in the summer. On this trip to France, I didn’t get a chance to ride the big ferris wheel. Then again, I had already done so on my first trip to the city in 2005. As I passed [...]

In a few weeks I’m off to Italy to speak at the Travel Bloggers Unite conference. One of the sponsors is Oyster Worldwide, a company that specializes in volunteer experiences for gappers and career breakers. They are giving away a trip to a blogger to go volunteer in Romania at a bear sanctuary. Who knew [...]
