    The Okavango delta in Botswana is a major python and anaconda breeding ground. While extremely large, neither are venomous but they can be found in large numbers and become very aggressive while mating and when protecting their young. They have been known to drop out of trees onto the mokoro canoes causing them to capsize. You must stay vigilant. Just kidding, no snakes! : )

  • Best time for Spain and Portugal

    Do you mind very hot temperatures or prefer a quiet time to go. Do you want a guarantee of no rain? These could all influence your choice. If you go to the tour page open up the Before you Go tab and Preparing to Go tab and you will find a weather section. The best time to go in my opinion is May and those dates are already filling up.

    If in Flanders visit St. Sixtus Abbey in Westvleteren or the pub/restaurant next door. These don't ever make it to the US and rarely found outside the town. The Westvleteren brewery has made quite the name for itself with its widely beloved beer and limited production. It all started with a charming origin story: as the abbey was being built in 1831, the construction workers each had the right to two beers a day according to their contract, so the monks started brewing these themselves in order to save some money. Almost two centuries later, Westvleteren 12 (one of four beers produced at the monastery) has been declared the best beer in the world multiple times over. Given the skyrocketing demand, the small scale of the monks’ brewing operation and the fact that you have to drive up to the monastery itself to get a crate or two, it’s not easy to get a hold of one of these bad boys.

It’s a recurring theme with me. It often seems that we live in troubled times. But perhaps the times are no more troubled than the times have always been throughout history. Maybe it just feels particularly rough when I see so many disturbing stories firing at me from all sides 24/7 through a variety of media channels in a news world that nev...

Ah … now, as we slip into September there has been a break in the weather in the Northeast. The temperature is in the 70s. The cool temperatures are startling, like a memory from the deep dark past. It is a reminder that the dog days of summer will soon be coming to an end.
