Posted on April 15, 2015

The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world. The contrast between low and high tides may reach 45 feet. The people whose lives are most influenced by this amazing natural phenomena are the inhabitants of New Brunswick, Canada’s Bay of Fundy Isles – a string of scenic islands where lives are dependent on the sea and lived with respect for nature’s awesome power. Grand Manan, Deer Island and Campobello are the three most frequented islands. On this adventure Joseph visits all three and meets New Brunswick, Canada’s secret treasure—its people.

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. To learn more, to book and for last-minute discounts and promotional rates, go to EvocaHotels.com. I speak with Evoca Group Marketing Director, Karl Sandrock about the boutique hotel concept on my latest podcast.
