US Virgin Islands: Paradise Awaits You!


– St Thomas/St John Trip to Paradise.

Spirit left late by 40 minutes from Ft Lauderdale as they were waiting for a flight connection to arrive so people weren’t stranded. What a nice thing to do for an airline. Normally they just don’t care. Arrival into St Thomas, pretty uneventful. A 22 year old tried to smoke a cigarette on the tarmac! To funny, although not so funny to security.

Arrival to Marriott Frenchman’s Reef. It was a pl

Pierre's is quite possibly one of the most romantic places to dine in South Florida and a relatively short drive from Miami, well worth the "escape" from urban life. The restaurant and lounge is located on a private beach with gorgeous sunsets over tranquil Florida Bay.

Making Biber in Switzerland's Appenzell



We spent the first 2.5 days here in Switzerland exploring Appenzellerland close to the country's eastern border with Germany. The efficient and comfy train whisked us to Weissbad, a village surrounded by steep green pastures rising in every direction with majestic mountain ranges in the distance. Appenzell, the next town over, was filled with one-of-a-kind local craftspeople and artisan foods made uninterrupted for generations.

Thailand Food Tour: Blissed Out In Bangkok

by Barbara Ramsay Orr


For someone with a healthy appetite like me, the lure of Thailand and Thai food is irresistible. I love the temples, the generous and polite people, the golden Buddhas, and all of the colour and drama of Bangkok. But I am an unapologetic foodie, and the moments of culinary bliss that I have experienced in Bangkok figure prominently in my memories of this city, right up there with the saffron-clad monks and the jewelled temples.
