London Pub Crawl

AngelBrandedBannerSundayRoastOne of things I miss the most when I’m away from London (or the UK) is a properly poured pint. There are few more quintessentially British experiences than sitting in a historic pub and having great conversation while sipping a superb pint of hand pulled ale. Pubs in London, and all over the UK, offer travelers a chance to slow down and get a glimpse into the social center of British culture. Over the last decade, the farm-to-table movement and gastropubs have revolutionized British gastronomy and pubs all over the UK. London is full of excellent pubs, but these are the ones that I like due to their beer selection, ambiance, location and great food. Centrally located, you can easily stumble between these pubs like a pin ball while walking, taking the bus or tube. None of these pubs are part of a chain or bigger corporation. Stay away from those as they will only offer you high prices, boring food and bad service. If you are headed to London, don’t miss these historic pubs that serve great beer and excellent food in a traditional ambiance.  READ MORE

Packing Tips For Men: 2 Weeks in Europe

AngelBrandedBannerI just returned from a brief 2 week holiday in Europe. Whether I’m packing for a two weeks or six, I still manage to pack into a carry on bag. Mobility and traveling light is key for me and here is what I manage to get into my carry on luggage. I start with a flexible and versatile travel closet where I can mix and match. Nine outfits can be made from 3 tops x 3 trousers. I can make 16 outfits outfits of 4 tops x 4 trousers. I layer in some merino wool jumpers for warmth and to change things up a bit. Also, traveling light with apparel that is wrinkle resistant, quick drying and with many other technical features helps not only lighten the load but makes doing laundry very easy when traveling.

Touring Historic Sights on the East Coast

AngelBrandedBannerI’ve spent most of this year criss-crossing the USA on a speaking tour with the Travel & Adventure Show. I was a keynote speaker and had a great time sharing all of my travel tips and travel smart skills on how to travel better, smarter and more often. While in Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, I finally had a chance to sightsee. Thanks to the National Park Service, the rangers who operate these sights and give free guided tours, I came away well informed, inspired and more patriotic than ever. My favorites included the National Mall in Washington D.C. & Independence Hall in Philadelphia. Both are pictured below. Enjoy! READ MORE

Holy Week in Andalucia, Spain

Baby_SevillaSevilla during Holy Week will welcome you with open arms. From the Puerta de Jerez, you may notice several horse drawn buggies on their way to the Cathedral. On Palm Sunday the sound of the tolling bells from the enormous Giralda (bell tower) fill the city. A procession to the Cathedral marks the beginning of the most Holy Week in a Spaniard’s calendar. On my visit, the initial procession on Palm Sunday was led by small boys in red & white robes holding palm branches. READ MORE
