Caveman Living and The Adventures of Cappadocia12/28/2010

I officially became a caveman when I arrived in Cappadocia, Turkey. Cappadocia is located almost smack-dab in the middle of Turkey. There are no snow covered mountains, sandy beaches, large water sources, or thriving trees to keep you cool during the middle of July. However, Cappadocia’s caves provide an opportunity for exploration, sight seeing and […]

My travel experiences, pre legal drinking age, were limited to short trips to nearby U.S. vacation hot spots.

The Extraordinary Ruins of Pompeii12/10/2010

I mention in previous posts that I’m not a big fan of guided tours. Let’s make an exception for the ancient city of Pompeii. Pompeii is so big and vast, I highly recommend a guide to show you around the place. You won’t be disappointed! Pompeii was buried by the catastrophic, volcanic eruption of Mt. […]
