2014 Camino de Santiago:  Equipment Decisions & New Found Inspiration

I have been struggling with my decision on whether the backpack I purchased for my Camino is too big.  It is an Osprey 65 liter bag, but my friends think that it is too big.  Yesterday, we went to REI and looked at the smaller 48 liter version.  I have decided to return my backpack […]

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 […]

What makes a good Travel Blog . . .

I have been blogging now for 4 years.  I started my personal blog, Trekcapri’s Blog, in 2007 when I traveled to Venice, Italy and I have been blogging ever since.  I’m not the best writer but I enjoy the art and skill of writing.  My reason for blogging initially began as a personal journal to […]

Travel Thoughts:  How Far Ahead Do You Plan . . .

So exactly how far in advance should you be planning your next trip?  Well, the answer is not so clear cut.  There are many things that factor into the answer of this travel question: – Depends on where you are going?  If it is a popular location, finding lodging will be a challenge. And the availability […]

Travel Thoughts:  Remember the true meaning of things . . .

  Twas the night before my trip and all through my house the sound of paper shuffling and zippers zipping and the panic of OMG I'm leaving soon can be heard   Okay, it's not Christmas yet, and okay I'm not very poetic. But I'm in that nervous pre departure panic mode and I need […]

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 […]

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 […]
