The Best Travel Gear (That I Really Use!)

Over the last 15 years I have traveled a lot, and lugged all kinds of cameras, bags and travel accessories all over the world. So, it might not surprise that one of the questions I am asked all the time, after where should I go on my next vacation, is what travel gear do you pack on your trips? For the record, I bring lightweight clothes I can roll tightly, wash and dry quickly and layer if it gets cold. I also drag around my Canon 6d...

Travels in Armenia

Armenia in Video From Armenia with love I know I rarely write “as the Editor” and this needs to change. Mostly, because ITKT has been doing building a number of big projects for the new year. Still, in the midst of it all, I try to cut a video and do a little writing to keep our community in the loop now and again. The above video was taken while I was in multiple locations throughout Armenia with Flotours. As the first...

ITKT Needs Your Help!

I give up. After eight years of building In The Know Traveler and our other five travel sites. I give up. Well, not entirely… just giving up control. For the last eight years I have had to do it all, although I do have a few people who helped me greatly. I love what I do and ITKT’s mission of providing inspiration to the international traveler to experience cultural exchange first-hand for a more compassionate and understanding world...

Home Cooking, Gas Station-Style, in Turkey

Home Cooking Turkey For those who have every braved a road trip without packing a gourmet meal before hitting the highways are left with indelible memories of awful 49 cent mini mall hotdogs and cans of cola, only to have to repeat the process every few hundred miles or so. So I planned ahead on my latest trip with FLOtours. I loaded my backpack with an assortment of power bars for those times when I just could not handle a gas...

Thoughts on Turkey

It is my second day of a 15-day trip in Turkey with FLO-USA, a tour operator. As I have several writers already go on the FLO USA’s trip for ITKT over the years, I have to admit, I was pretty excited about making the journey. After spending the day visiting the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque and the Basilica Cistern, my feet are sore but the trip so far has been impressive. Here are a few of my early, early...

Cultural Immersion and the Short-Term Stay

Nearly twenty years ago, I found myself in Göteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden, holding a map of the city, stretched out at arms length, while I tried to orient myself. I had just walked off the ferry from Aalborg, Denmark, and had no idea where I was. I needed food and shelter, and to find a bank for some Swedish Krones. It was one of those moments when I secretly hoped someone would just come along and help me, but no one ever does. Then,...

Travel Photos Update on ITKT

Hey all, I know that I have not checked in some time, but that has little to do with having nothing to say. It is actually the opposite. ITKT has been quietly expanding and reorganizing and these changes are beginning to manifest. Travel. Write. Live. fans should know that my hiatus is almost over. It has been long overdue, there has some directional changes being made and I will start helping folks become better travel writer soon....

Budget Shopping in Manchester, England

With the state of the dollar and current place of economy I can understand why England may not be high on the list of destinations for some. So when I came across a shop that is particularly discounted and tons of locals filling the place, I had to check it out. I found Primark while walking through Picadilly Garden in Manchester. Primark is a super cheap super store that sells clothes and other department store items all at...
