I studied abroad in Greece my first semester of college. It was not my first trip to Europe, but the semester was my first time in Greece or Eastern Europe. Studying in Thessaloniki, Greece, I was just under a four drive from the capital of Bulgaria, so I needed to take a trip to try Bulgarian food. Read more courtesy…

Less brutal events

It’s well known that the Romans constructed hundreds of amphitheaters across their vast empire. These marvels of architecture can be found in Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. Among them, the Pula Arena is one of the best-preserved. It’s also the 6th largest amphitheater still standing and the only arena to retain its four side towers. Read more courtesy…

Vin Route

There’s nothing quite like the freedom that comes with taking to the open road for an epic adventure.

Scarlet Johannesburg

This South African city has so many claims to fame, it’s no wonder the best things to do in Johannseburg are all so exciting. A few fun fact: it’s the biggest city in the world not built on a water source—it was actually built on a goldmine—and the second biggest on the entire continent of Africa (after Cairo, obvs). For all its success on paper,…

Anguilla? Tranquilla!

There are many stunning islands in the Caribbean. St Kitts and Nevis, St Maarten, St Barts, and the British Virgin Islands all draw thousands of tourists every year in search of sun, sand, and tropical relaxation.

Oh, start wining!

The Italian regions of Puglia, Umbria, and The Marche might not be the first places you think of when it comes to fine Italian wine, but these off-the-beaten-path locales not only have incredible wine, the fact that they are somewhat undiscovered by Americans also means fewer tourists, which results in a more authentic experience. And that’s exactly what Jeff Porter…

Excellence in the Dominican Republic

There was a moment when I was sitting on the rooftop terrace of my Excellence Club Honeymoon Suite, enjoying breakfast on the morning of my checkout, that I wondered to myself, “How is this real?” It wasn’t just about the amazing view of the ocean, impossibly cool breeze or delightfully refreshing green juice that had just been delivered to my…

Others are honeymooners, unwinding on one of the island’s chalky beaches or holing up in one of…

Piran ahhhh

Slovenia’s Riviera, wedged between Italy to the north and Croatia to the south, is tiny. But don’t let its diminutive size—just 30 miles long—dissuade you from a visit. Much like its Adriatic neighbors, this stretch of coastline packs in lots of picturesque beaches, sublime nature parks, compelling architecture, and delicious food—minus the tourist throngs found on nearby shores.
