Mofungo and Mulligans: Golfing in Puerto Rico

  Mofungo and Mulligans: Golfing in Puerto Rico They might as well have handed me a magic wand for all I knew what to do with a golf club. My trip to the northeast region of Puerto Rico called for a golf-centered adventure hitting up all the top courses on the island. At first the talent of the other players was overwhelming as they traded handicap stats and knowledge of the pros standings back and forth. But I diligently...

A Hat-Start in Puerto Rico

It was somewhat unfortunate that the cruise ship I was on docked in San Juan of Puerto Rico at 6.30pm and was scheduled to leave at midnight. That left few hours to explore and, to make it worse, in the dark and drizzling rain. Never one to be deterred by any circumstances, I walked off the ship as fast as I could manage and, seeing, that the dock was very close to Old San Juan, I decided to walk around town and enjoy the atmosphere...

And the Winner is…ITKT Favorite Surprise Destination

In the last year, I had an opportunity to visit a lot of places on four different continents. How lucky is that? Most of them were places I have never visited before, and covered areas with rain forests, snow, mountains, sand, water, and/or cement. Even though I may have not visited a destination before, I routinely have some preconception of where I am headed — what the people will be like and whether I will have a good...

Getting Lost, then Not

There is a certain joy to walking through streets of a newly visited city, just to get lost. I had been spending most of my afternoon in Old San Juan finding shade under skinny trees, watching the most cheerful protest ever (I thought it was just a well-organized street party instead of a serious issues with local teachers), and admiring the fabulous architecture, when it was time to go home — I stayed at the Marriott in the...

The San Juan Marriott (video podcast)

First off, I loved San Juan. To me, San Juan has so many great things about that I would hate to have it all squeezed in in one place, I will have more on San Juan, Puerto Rico on ITKT soon. Right now, I want to focus on a specific part of my trip. The place where I laid my head, had breakfast, dinner, enjoyed some great San Juan skylines and used as my hub for traveling the city, the San Juan Marriott. I met with the big cheese at...
