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...

Getaway Kalahari Desert

I arrived in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, with a Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt. I was picked up from Hosea Kutako airport and drove to “Zebra Kalahari Lodge“.  The road is wonderful. It is a relatively comfortable and very wide unpaved track. The environment is flat and dry. One of the first things that caught my attention was the nests of...

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 Camprodon

I had gone as a child. A long time ago. I had good memories of both the bridge and the cookies (hahaha) and I really wanted to go back. I liked it so much that I have gone two weekends! It is a dynamic town, open to mountain sports and with a wide range of historical-cultural visits to the area. If you make a link on the map you will see the exact location of the...

Getaway Pompei

It is one of the most important tourist attractions in Italy. Everyone says that the Pompei ruins are unique and they probably are. Much of its value is due to the fact that it was not destroyed by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius, but was buried under a layer of ash. This is just why the city is so well preserved. The eruption was terrible, but the death toll...

Getaway Lac Rose

I leave Dakar, after breakfast, towards Lac Rose. Slowly, I go with the van on the A1 until a detour that leads, first to Niaga and then to one of the most important tourist attractions in the country: Lac Rose. It takes me 1:15h to travel more than 40 km and finally I arrive at Chez Salim Lac Rose. It is a hotel that is next to the lake and is a departure point for...

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...

Getaway Bohol

Philippines was one of my dreams. I often received photos of paradisiacal beaches and exuberant nature of this exotic country and this made me sure that visiting it would be a success. So it was. Let’s not forget that it is an archipelago of 7,641 islands. It is not easy to choose which ones to visit. There are so many that too high volume is waived. They all...

Getaway Porto

I have been twice in Porto, specifically, two weekends. Everyone spoke very well to me; but I went without much expectations. I liked Lisbon too much and thought that Porto would be behind. This is a clear example of the error of prejudging before knowing. Porto is amazing. Small, beautiful, with history, very nice shops and a good gastronomic offer. For me, it is...

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:...

Getaway Lanzarote and La Graciosa

I took the plane to Lanzarote on December 27 at mid-morning. I arrived at the “H10 Rubicón Palace” hotel in Playa Blanca at around 3pm. I ate something quick and was already in the car. I wanted to benefit of the afternoon. The LZ-2 highway is one of the main ones. It connects Playa Blanca with Arrecife (and Airport). From Playa Blanca, in just 10...

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...
