Martinique – France with a dash of Caribbean Spice

Posted on August 17, 2015

Located in the heart of the Caribbean, Martinique is a wonderful mix of Caribbean spirit and French joie de vivre. Its eastern coastline borders the Atlantic Ocean while its western coast is flanked by the Caribbean Sea. Although the island is 4,350 miles away from France, it still offers visitors some of the best of France – spectacular natural beauty; great cuisine, fine imported wines and local beverages, as well as lovely people who epitomize the French love of life. In this pod cast Joseph shares his visit to Martinique for the Fort de France festival – a celebration of art, music and theater that these days is best seen at the annual four-day Carnival. For more information on Martinique go to Martinique.org or call 212-838-6887. Happy Traveling!

Cartagena, Colombia

Posted on March 15, 2015

Julie I recently visited Cartagena, Colombia and were impressed with its offerings and how easy it was to have a good time.  The bad old days of drug cartel wars felt eons away as we wandered the streets of the old walled city and enjoyed the music pouring from its many bars and restaurants. When it came to finding a place to stay we sampled a few of the options. The Evoca Historic Boutique Hotels is a collection of 11 independent small hotels in Cartagena’s historical center and on nearby Caribbean islets. Evoca Hotels feature something for every interest and budget: including properties that are luxurious, glamorous, historic and modern, with experiences that cater to leisure, romance and business visitors.

I speak with Evoca Group Marketing Director, Karl Sandrock about the boutique hotel concept on my latest podcast.
