Travel Thoughts:  Peaks and Valleys . . .

Do you get pre-trip jitters?  If not, you’re a far better traveler than I. I am now a little more than 5 weeks away from my first South America Adventures and although I’ve done a lot of preparation work, I don’t feel ready. And it is this lack of confidence that gives me these “valley” […]

Social Media:  What works for you and where do you spend most of your time on?

Social media includes web-based and mobile based technologies which are used to turn communication into interactive dialogue among organizations, communities, and individuals. Social media technologies take on many different forms including magazines, Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, microblogging, wikis, podcasts, photographs or pictures, video, rating and social bookmarking. ~ Wikipedia Well, that’s certainly a mouth full.  Initially, I started to blog because I considered […]

Technology: WiFi where ever you go with MiFi . . .

In my main blog, I announced my 2011 Amalfi Coast Adventures!  I am beyond excitement and can’t wait to “live” in one of the charming small towns that line this famous strectch in the Campania Region of Southern Italy.  I found this beautiful apartment that has these stunning views of the ocean from every room.  A perfect […]

Travel Technology:  IBooks & Amazon Kindle on my ITouch . . .

I recently discovered two free applications for my iTouch (also good for iPad):  iBooks and Amazon Kindle   These two applications allows me to purchase books from the iBooks and Amazon Kindle Stores.  I was able to purchase a few guide books for my trip plus a couple of fun novels to while away the long […]

Travel Technology: Guess what I discovered 21 days before I leave . . .

I can't believe I didn't discover this sooner.  On my i-touch I downloaded the iBooks and Amazon Kindle applications and voila I have several books (Travel Guides and a couple of Trashy novels) to read while on my trip. The costs can actually rival the costs of buying the hard copy at B&N. And I […]

Trek’s Audio Guide to Vibrant Europe – LOL

Okay, when I first came up with the idea of creating my own Trekcapri audio guides to help me during my sightseeing adventures, I forgot about the fact that I'll have to pronounce some of the names of these places.  And let me tell you!  I haven't yet gotten to my Belgium and Berlin recordings yet, […]

Amsterdam: Introduction (Audio Test)

Amsterdam:  Introduction (Audio Test)

I recorded this very brief audio clip of an Introduction to Amsterdam . . . This is so funny, I was trying not to sound like the typical boring podcast narrator, but it just sort of naturally comes out that way even when I set some music in the background to jazz it up.  I'm such […]

Travel Thoughts – My love-hate relationship!

Today my new i-Touch will arrive! Yay!  64 Gigs of memory, a front and back facing camera, voice memo’s, high definition video viewing and recording, retina display for sharper images, gaming features … I’m very excited to start playing with it.  So yesterday, I was talking with a friend who read an article that the new […]

Ms. Gadget strikes again . . .

Ms. Gadget strikes again . . .

Yay!  I just ordered the new i-Touch and I'm totally excited!  It is 1,000 times better than my 1st Generation model and here's why: Dual Camera – It now has a dual camera (front and back) to use for face time (something I probably won't use) and for taking still photos and video.  Yes, I carry […]
