Travel Memories Photograph – Canadian Flag

Gr8 Travel Tips Photo Den

Travel Memories Photograph From Baja Mexico

This edition of Gr8 Travel Tips Travel Memories Photograph is a Canadian Flag taken while on our wonderful Baja Mexico Camping Adventure.

Our group stopped for the night to camp at Bahia de Los Angeles – Baja Mexico. This was picturesque beachfront rustic campground on Week 4 of our 28 day journey down the Baja.

The Flag was a bit tattered, but as our group were mostly from Canada, we thought it was pretty cool to see someone had placed it in the campground at some point. ?

Safer Travel from the Coronavirus to Crocodiles

Safer Travel from the Coronavirus to Crocodiles: With some constant media commentary focused on the coronavirus, it can be hard to figure out how to travel safely. In addition, it can be really disturbing with quarantines of millions of people, including those on pleasure cruises now confined to cabins (worse yet those with inside cabins!)

With this growing concern daily over the coronavirus, safety and health issues are a valid consideration, especially when going abroad. Although I always go to a travelers’ clinic before leaving home, I still found a real surprise on a 4 day island vacation. I arrived in the midst of a previously unknown epidemic in Santiago, Cape Verde, off the coast of Senegal...

Solo Travel Destinations New Orleans:

New Orleans is both historic and cutting edge.

  • My 1st trip was at age 12. I was intrigued by the “spooky” old cemeteries. It was like an Alfred Hitchcock movie!

When I was a college student, I returned.

  • I spent hours watching artists paint in the French Quarter.
  • Then I took free rides on the Mississippi River ferryboat.
  • I saw one of the world’s longest bridges. The 23+ mile Lake Pontchartrain Bridge even has a cloverleaf to turn around!

Solo Travel Destinations New Orleans: Its History:

It is one of the most “foreign” US cities. Its looks little like other US cities.

  • New Orleans dates back to the 16th century with Hernando Cortez.
  • The Spanish and then the French ruled t...

2 Days in New York City: The Ultimate New York Itinerary

New York! The city that never sleeps. We have visited New York City many times, and still feel we’ve barely scratched the surface of what this incredible city has to offer.

With that in mind, we’ve put together this itinerary for 2 days in New York. It focuses primarily on what we feel are some of the top attractions in the city, favourites that we’ve visited multiple times across many visits.

Obviously, with only 2 days in New York, there is only so much you can see and do...

5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Jordan Now

Week eight of my crazy 52 countries in 52 weeks adventure took me to the Middle Eastern gem of Jordan, the cheapest flight out of Budapest. Now don’t get me wrong, I love European cities, but after two months straight of churches, castles and old towns I was SO excited to be heading somewhere completely different to the first part of my big trip.

Jordan jumped onto my bucket list a couple of years back after seeing photos of the stunning Petra ruins on Instagram, but because it’s notoriously expensive to get to, and still not easy on the wallet once you’re there, I hadn’t managed to make it there just yet. But now after spending a week exploring all the country has to offer, I can say with certainty that it’s absolutely worth the money!

Here are five reasons why you need to visi...
