About Me

I love traveling, meeting new people, and experiencing new foods and cultures.  My motto - Live as much like a local as you can and learn at least a few phrases in the native language.  If you want it to be like your home country, stay home!

Places I Follow

Jim's Activity

ASan Antonio: where to stay?

If your budget can handle it, stay at one of the hotels near the Riverwalk North​. Lots of things to see and do that are within walking distance (it is downtown, so you wouldn't want to drive as much). The Alamo​ is right there.... See More

AEurope: Next flight in...8 hours! What to do during a long layover?

Once on a trip to Brazil, I had a six hour layover in Montevideo Dept​.  It cost me almost $120.00, but I hired a Taix to take me around the best buildings and monuments.  We stopped at a market place.  I got a few souvenirs and got some local cuisine... See More

AMexico City: Is Day of the Dead a good time to visit?

Bosque de Chapultepec​ is really great. On the outskirts of town are the pyramids. The Basílica de Santa María de Guadalupe​ (with three different churches) is really interesting if you're into culture, architecture, and religion.... See More

ADallas: In town for NBA games, what are the must sees around downtown Dallas?

Check out the West End Marketplace​.  Lots of great shops, music, and restaurants. See More

AHavana: Any tips on flying to Havana from Dallas, TX?

If you are a US citizen, you have to have permission from the State Department to travel to Cuba.  They have very limited reasons for allowing someone to go.  To the best of my knowledge, the only flights from the US are charter flights from Miami, FL. See More

ACalifornia: Cross Country Trip - CA to FL with 3 children (ages 10, 7, 6) . . . HELP!

If you go through Mobile, you should stop at the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park​, the old battleship in the bay.  If you're on I-40, you might want to check out the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum​ in Oklahoma... See More

ASouth America: How Much Money Will I Need For Backpacking?

It isn't extremely expensive.  I'd be a little leery of backpacking through Venezuela.  On the border of Columbia, you have to worry about FARC (a semi-terrorist organization).  I'm also not sure that they are completely over the violence from a few months... See More

ACuba: How can I get to Cuba from the US?

Go to Canada or Mexico.  As long as you aren't a US citizen, you can catch a flight from there.  There are also charter flights from Miami.  But I don't know if they are open to the general public from other countries. Hope this helps. See More
