Storming The Castle In Ireland!

Posted on April 04, 2016

image Ireland is a country of history, myths and legends. Ireland’s capital city of Dublin is where the Irish have lived since before 988AD. Dublin, located on the River Liffey, is the city of Saint Patrick, writers James Joyce and Brendan Behan and the Patriots of the Easter Rebellion.  Dublin is a city of music pubs where you can find good “craic.” It’s the home to Guinness, Trinity College and the Book of Kells. And Dublin is a city of warm hearted, good natured people, a city that has seen much pain and suffering, but today has not only managed to survive but to prospers. It’s all that and castles too. An Ireland Adventure is hardly complete without a stay in an Irish Castle. I speak with Stephanie Hayes of the Clontarf Castle Hotel—just ten minutes from Dublin—on my latest podcast. For more information on Ireland go to Ireland.com and for more on the castle visit ClontarfCastle.ie. And watch for Joseph’s new Ireland adventure in Dublin, Northern Ireland and the Great Atlantic Way coming on PBS this fall as part of Season 9 of Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscope.

Hip Urban Oasis on Lower East Side

Posted on January 19, 2016

image I may be a life-long loyal Californian, but I love New York. I just returned from speaking at the New York Times Travel show for the 9th year and Julie and I made sure to stay at the Hotel on Rivington In New York’s Lower Eastside—one of Manhattan’s last authentic neighborhoods. It’s a cool, hip hotel and a fascinating historic neighborhood. In this latest podcast I speak with general manager, Daniel Tenant, about the hotel and share some great neighborhood discoveries on my latest podcast.

Christmas Smoke

Posted on December 25, 2015


It’s holiday time and at this time of year Joseph’s childhood memories take him back to his grandparents home in Miami, Florida. Cuban immigrants, they celebrated a traditional “Noche Buena” with roast pork, red wine, black beans, white rice, yucca, plantains and, in his grandfather’s case, a long, dark, fat Cuban cigar. Joseph’s grandfather, Carlos, was a cigar maker from Pinar de Rios, Cuba.  Just in time for Christmas, Joseph tells his “Christmas Story” in this moving and evocative pod cast.
