A self-guided tour of some mind-blowing design in the Old World. It’s official, I admit it: I’m a geek. If I hadn’t become a writer, I might have been an engineer. How many other professions require you to think outside that proverbial box? For me, that’s just one more reason.../ ➝

If you could go anywhere in the world, absolutely, positively anywhere, and time and money were no object, where you you go? Why would you go there? What would you want to do and see when you got there? I’d like to think that each of us has a destination in the backs of our […].../ ➝

Hi. My name is Greg, and I am an addict. I was five years old when travel became my drug of choice. My first taste of travel came aboard the Sunset Limited bound from New Orleans to Los Angeles. Back in the 1950s, air travel was the domain of propeller-driven airplanes and the dressy well-to-do. [&h.../ ➝

This blog exists because of my mother, who kindled my love of travel — and a young black woman was proud to have never set foot outside of Natchez, MS! My most prized possession is an old passport with 15 visa stamps in it. I plan my own trips and will veer off from the […].../ ➝
