Been There, Do This: Bayon Temple in Angkor Thom, Cambodia

Been There, Do This: Bayon Temple in Angkor Thom, Cambodia

Visitors to Cambodia come from across the world to tour the Angkor Wat temple complex, which is the largest religious monument in the world and one of its great wonders. Angkor Wat is undoubtedly the crown jewel of the Angkor Archaeological Park, but it represents only a fraction of the architectural marvels left behind by the Khmer Empire.

Been There, Do This: Paradise Beach in Mykonos, Greece

Been There, Do This: Paradise Beach in Mykonos, Greece

Mykonos is known for its rowdy nightlife, but if you prefer more sunlit events, it also has its share of wild daytime parties to choose from. With that in mind, I hopped on a moped and zipped away to Paradise Beach (not to be confused with nearby competitor Super Paradise Beach) for a little fun in the sun.

Been There, Do This: Waikiki Beach in Washington State

Been There, Do This: Waikiki Beach in Washington State

I've always loved Waikiki Beach in Hawaii, but there's another Waikiki Beach that calls my name. It’s part of Cape Disappointment State Park on Washington's Long Beach Peninsula. On this moody, stormy morning, waves crashed against steadfast sea cliffs below a lighthouse first lit in 1856.

Been There, Do This: Diving in the Galapagos Islands

If you’re going to cut costs on a Galapagos Islands trip, don’t skimp out on a guided diving trip. As bumpy as my Galapagos adventure was (due to a choice to explore the islands without the comfort and convenience of a live-aboard boat), the few hours I spent underwater were unbeatable.

Been There, Do This: Royal Street in New Orleans

Been There, Do This: Royal Street in New Orleans

On my first day in New Orleans, I followed my ears to the French Quarter's Royal Street, one of the oldest strands in the city. I ended up face-to-face with a toe-tapping, crowd-pleasing jazz band, led by a singer who did double duty on a mean clarinet.

Been There, Do This: Eat Seafood Pasta in Positano, Italy

Been There, Do This: Eat Seafood Pasta in Positano, Italy

When vacationing in Italy, particularly when by the sea, you are essentially obligated to order the classic dish of spaghetti ai frutti di mare at least once. The above photograph depicts one of the three spaghetti ai frutti de mare dishes I consumed, specifically while in the coastal Italian village of Positano.

Been There, Do This: Boho Fun in Huertas, Madrid

Been There, Do This: Boho Fun in Huertas, Madrid

If you’re looking for something to do in Madrid besides hitting the discoteca until sunrise, check out the Huertas district, also known as el Barrio de Las Letras (the “Neighborhood of Letters”). As Madrid’s literary quarter, Huertas has been home to many famous writers, including Spanish novelist Miguel de Cervantes.
