  • The Best Cairns Family Accommodation & Best Port Douglas Family

    Posted by Brian Corbett on 6 August 2017

    Though beaches are not part of the landscape of the city area, the proximity to the Daintree Rainforest and beaches farther north draw visitors seeking adventure and access to a wide range of day trips. Spend the afternoon on the sandy shores of a tropical island or choose to snorkel, take a cruise or try white-water rafting. Learn about Aboriginal culture or take a hot-air balloon ride. Port Douglas is about an hour north of Cairns, in Far North Queensland, and has a relaxed, tropical atmosphere. Watch the sunrise from world famous 4 Mile Beach, part of the 200 km stretch of reef and rainforest. Beaches are definitely one of the main attractions in Port Douglas; however options away from the coast include the World Heritage rainforest, providing opportunities for exciting jungle exploration.

  • Quick Guide to the Fabulous Things to do in Sentosa Island

    Posted by Brian Corbett on 4 August 2017

    I was shocked when I started researching attractions in Singapore by the staggering amount of things to do in Sentosa Island. So many, in fact, that we dedicated 3.5 days of our 5 days in Singapore just to exploring the attractions in Sentosa Island - and we still didn't see them all. Nevertheless, we did get around a big slice of the island and visited the attractions that are best for young kids. Get ready for a massive post as the list of things to do in Sentosa Island is l o n g!

  • 2 Best Cruise-Ships for SeaDays

    Posted by Brian Corbett on 25 July 2017

    When Royal Caribbean's gargantuan and game-changing Oasis of the Seas debuted as the then-world's largest ship in 2009, people wondered if anyone would bother to get off the ship in port, as it could take a week to try out all the onboard activities. With 24 dining options, 21 pools and hot tubs, multiple live performance venues (including an ice rink and AquaTheater for high-diving shows) and seven "neighborhoods," the ship practically guarantees that no one will have trouble finding something to do.

  • U.S. River Cruises: 3 Things to Know

    Posted by Brian Corbett on 24 July 2017

    Sure you've seen other ships out on the big blue ocean, but they're usually far away and too hard to make out. On the river, though, you can practically reach out and touch the barge you're passing, and if you wave to the deckhand, he's going to see you and wave back.

  • Things to Know About River vs. Ocean Cruises

    Posted by Brian Corbett on 23 July 2017

    Ocean cruisers are trying their first river cruises these days -- and with good reason. River cruising is the fastest-growing sector of the cruise industry, with 18 new ships on order for 2017 alone. Even though river cruises have been operating for decades, they have come on in leaps and bounds in the past decade. Modern ships with expanded amenities offer intriguing itineraries to places oceangoing vessels can't reach, tempting fans of seagoing vessels to jump ship. So what's the difference between a river cruise vs. ocean cruise?

  • Your Ultimate Montreal + Quebec Bucket List For This Summer

    Posted by Brian Corbett on 22 July 2017

    It's funny that even though my all-time favorite blogging topic is Europe, SO MANY people ask me about Montreal. My Montreal and Quebec posts are among the most popular, and I get a good 10 emails a week with questions about holidays to Montreal. I can completely see why - between the stunning landscapes of Charlevoix, the lively music scene in Montreal and the awe-inspiring old-world beauty of Quebec City, it's understandable that tourism in the province of Quebec is increasing rapidly. And I'm extremely proud to be your go-to person for this beautiful part of the globe. This is why I've put together a short Quebec bucket list, which comprises all the things I will be doing in the coming months in and outside of Montreal.

  • Hawaii's Best Shore Excursions

    Posted by Brian Corbett on 22 July 2017

    This tour hits two of Pearl Harbor's landmark attractions. After a stop in the Visitor's Center, you'll board a boat to visit the USS Arizona Memorial. When the Japanese attacked on December 7, 1941, the ship's hull was shattered, and it sank, killing 1,177 crewmen. (1,102 remain entombed in the ship, which lies directly beneath the floating memorial.) Then you'll head to Ford Island, where the USS Missouri (aka Mighty Mo) is now docked. Japanese leaders signed the Formal Instrument of Surrender aboard the Mighty Mo on September 2, 1945, in Tokyo Bay, officially ending World War II. The 887-foot battleship's distinguished career spanned five decades, including service in World War II, the Korean War and Operation Desert Storm. Decommissioned and opened as a museum, the mammoth ship now offers fascinating insights into the life of a sailor.
