For years, I’ve heard about the good vibrations in the Caribbean,…

Planning the Perfect Road Trip

[google1] Taking a road trip sounds like the perfect way to see any country.  When we fly from one place to another we get great views of airports and the sky, but we do not get a chance to enjoy the views en route.  Road trips are also a great way to see another country after arriving there.  Fly-drive holidays in the US have been popular for a number of years and this is because…

Fitted with a faucet and drain–like a sink with the lines of a toilet bowl–I stared at it for a few minutes before dropping my pants and assuming the position. I cranked open the faucet and an arc of water undershot me…
