Getaway around Knoxville

My "wish list" of destinations to visit is huge and Knoxville just isn't there. Neither had it located on the map, nor was there anything in the area that caught my attention. But I had a personal event and I decided to spend three days there. I flew, with a small American company, from Newark International Airport (New Jersey) to McGhee Tyson Airport, located in the...

Restaurant "El Comedor"

It is the restaurant of the "Instituto Culinario de Caracas". It was founded in 2003 and, since then, it has been the culinary training center with a comprehensive vision. Its philosophy is based on discipline, technical knowledge and understanding gastronomy as a multidisciplinary activity. It works within the headquarters, but it is an independent entity. All the...

Getaway Parque Nacional Tikal

After spending a few days in Ciudad de Guatemala and in wonderful Antigua, I caught a local flight at La Aurora International Airport (in Ciudad de Guatemala) to Mundo Maya International Airport (in Isla de Flores). The flight is very short. I left at 6:30 in the morning and arrived at my destination at 07:30. I hired everything (flight, guide and hotel) at Tag...

Getaway New Jersey

If I'm honest, I shouldn't name this post "New Jersey." New Jersey is a huge US state and I was only in Newark, Bayonne and Weehawken; the eastern part, which is the area closest to New York. Newark: The star visit of Newark is, without a doubt, the New Hope Baptist Church. It is the church where Whitney Houston began to sing and where her funeral was held. At the...

Getaway Midtown Manhattan

New York is huge. I try to know every corner of this city, but I can't. I have been there 3 times. The first two were by pass and I was very few days. I saw the typical things that makes me an idea of the city. The third and last one was the objective of the trip and things changed. I spent there almost two weeks. I organized the visits in four areas: Upper...

Hotel "Talk of the Town"

Aruba is very beautiful if you spend time discovering the interesting part of the island. The other part is like a big candy cake. Really. The authentic part is virgin and special; while the other is full of "all inclusive" macro hotels and pink casinos. I spent first nights in the boutique hotel "Boardwalk". It is the antithesis of what Aruba means. It is a small...

Getaway Antigua

I had a special desire with Guatemala. My mother and my grandparents had always spoken to me very well. They are my references in travel issues. We have similar tastes and they recommended me this country with such emphasis, I was aroused by an important curiosity. I had the fortune to visit it with a Guatemalan family who welcomed and took care of me. I lived in...

Getaway Cayo Playuela y Playuelita

I have said on many occasions that Morrocoy was a discovery for me. There are destinations in Venezuela, such as Los Roques, which are world famous. Everyone knows it even they have not been there; but who knows Morrocoy? I already wrote it in the post of Playa Mero: I think that Venezuelans do not speak too much because they do not want to make...

Getaway Lake Powell

Those of you who know me have always heard me say that I never go back to a place that I have already visited. Leaving aside the European cities (which I have been there several times like Naples, Lisbon or Porto); when I talk about far away and expensive destination, even though I loved them, I always say that I will not go back. There are too many beautiful places...

Getaway Horseshoe Bend

No one had ever told me about Horseshoe. In fact, I discovered it by chance while looking at Google Maps while planning a visit to Antelope Canyon and this area of the United States. And luckily, because I wouldn't have excuse me for leaving Arizona without seeing it! Antelope and Horseshoe are very close. It can be used to visit both things in the same getaway...

Getaway Grand Canyon

I know that it is a well-known and frequented destination at the same time and that perhaps it moves a little away from the concept of "raconet"; but I feel the "obligation" to talk about it. It is a wonder of nature so impressive that it leaves you breathless. There are two shores: the south rim and the north rim. My US road trip gave me the opportunity to enter...

Getaway Upper Manhattan: Harlem

Whoever visits the city of New York is obliged to take a tour of the legendary Harlem neighborhood. It is located in northern Manhattan. It is one of the largest residences of African Americans since 1920 and has witnessed artistic creations such as jazz. Since 1960, the neighborhood was radicalized and revolutionary ideologues appeared who sought to reverse racism...
