The Florida Keys unique laid-back atmosphere is a world away from big cities and theme parks that now dominate most of Florida. Although it was long ago that Florida's ambiance was able to lure renowned novelist Ernest Hemingway to reside in Key West throughout the 1930s, when he drew creative inspiration from the subtropical island's lush environment. Inspiring some of his most famous works including "For Whom the Bell Tolls," "To Have and Have Not" and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro." Today the laid-back atmosphere of this small, 2-by-4-mile island probably still nurtures the talents of more writers per capita than any other city in the country.
The keys are a chain of islands that begins just south of Miami, connected by the Overseas Highway’s 42 bridges — one almost seven miles long — over the Atlantic Ocean, Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The famed highway was designated an All-American Road, the highest recognition possible under the National Scenic Byways program and it really is a spectacular adventure. Key West is situated closer to Cuba than to Miami and once you arrive in Key West you sense you have arrived in a special place. 


Nice place to stay in Key Largo is the Bay Harbor Lodge a cozy bay front resort situated on 2.5 acres of lush tropical foliage.

This is a great value and Peg Laron is the owner and  with 15 rooms, there is never a crowd on the resort's private beach. They even offer free kayaks and homemade muffins.

On the way to Key West spend at least a day in Key Largo where you will find the iconic vessel the African Queen made famous in the 1951 movie of the same name starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn she still remains a timeless classic. This famous Steamboat is available for daily canal cruises and dinner cruises in the Port Largo Canal area and also for private events.

The African Queen was built in Lytham, England in 1912 for service in Africa for the East Africa British Railways company. She was used to shuttle cargo, missionaries and hunting parties across the Victoria Nile and Lake Albert which was located on the border between the Belgian Congo and Uganda. In 1951 she starred in the famous movie directed by John Huston. Afterwards, she remained in service in Africa until 1968 when she was brought to the United States working in San Francisco, Oregan, and Florida. She has been the pride and joy of  Key Largo since 1982, where she is registered as a National Historic site and in 2012 celebrated her centennial year.

Imagine, waking up in a charming historic inn surrounded by the beauty and warmth of tropical Key West. Hey, that's the Lighthouse Court! Located next door to the Key West Lighthouse Museum and across the street from the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. Just one block off Duval Street, the location affords instant access to some of my favorite things to do in Key West including the Mallory Square sunset celebration, Sloppy Joe’s Bar and the Southernmost Point marker in the U.S. 

The guest inn is comprised of ten “conch” buildings spread out on half a city block the buildings date from 1890 to the 1920’s. The architecture is typical for old Key West, featuring one and two story buildings that have tin roofs, wood siding, open porches, and french doors. You really feel the history of Key West and the hotel is best suited to couples, as most rooms provide one guest bed. Other features are the first class service, a large heated pool, Continental breakfast and free WiFi are part of the experience. Quick tip, the Hemingway Suite is one of the nicest hotel suites in Key West. Perhaps the best features of the hotel is free parking.


When you arrive in Key West and get settled. I suggest going to the Sunset Celebration which is a nightly “street carnival” at Mallory Square overlooking Key West Harbor. It is a nightly homage to the setting sun and features arts and crafts exhibitors, street performers, food carts, psychics, musicians and more. Crowds of visitors from around the world flock to the celebration each evening to observe and applaud the setting of the sun over the water.


Don't miss the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum which is across the street from the Lighthouse INN nestled in the heart of Old Town Key West.

Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote here for more than ten years. Calling Key West home, he found solace and great physical challenge in the turquoise waters that surround this tiny island. Step back in time and visit the rooms and gardens that witnessed the most prolific period of this Nobel Prize winner's writing career.

As you wander through the lush grounds and enjoy the whimsy of the more than forty cats each with a unique celebrity name that live here. There is also entertaining and educated tour guides that give insightful narratives and are eager to answer questions.

The Ritz London

150 Piccadilly, London W1J9BR

The Guard that looks after Buckingham Palace is called The Queen's Guard and is divided into two Detachments: the Buckingham Palace Detachment (responsible for guarding Buckingham Palace) and the St James's Palace Detachment (responsible for guarding St James's Palace).

On our list of must stay "hotels is the prestigious 5-Star Baglioni Hotel located in Kensington, one of the most elegant areas in London, opposite the famed Kensington Palace and Hyde Park with its beautiful gardens. With 67 stunning rooms, the Baglioni is an exclusive retreat from the pressures of everyday life. Although situated in the heart of London, this boutique hotel is Italian through and through, a very fine example of "Uno Stile di Vita!" (A Style of Life). The moment you walk into the lobby you feel the Italian hospitality and experience a sense of luxury that is put into every detail of the hotel. The hotel is a short distance from the Royal Albert Hall, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum. The unique touches like the chauffeur driven Maserati Quattroporte available to guests at no charge for short trips and your personal butler ensure that your stay is an unforgettable one. You will always remember the hospitality shown by the hotel's staff.



As we continue our series on London. It is time to focus on another one of London's best hotels. One of our favorites is a 5-Star Luxury & Boutique Hotel in central London with understated elegance, impeccable service and authentic English grandness. It is the kind of hotel for those who wish to enjoy the ambience of a traditional English hotel, set in a very quiet environment. A favorite of film stars and royalty with understated elegance and authentic English grandness, the Draycott Hotel is more than just a 5-Star town house suite hotel; it occupies three red-brick Edwardian homes just around the corner from Chelsea's Sloane Square and Kensington. Staying in this elegant town house will evoke a sense of old world romantic charm and elegance for which the city of London is so famous. Here you will feel as though you are home. Perhaps, the most unique feature of this hotel is it really makes you feel that you are in your own home in London with your favorite house staff. 

On the other end of the spectrum is the exciting Radisson Edwardian Hampshire Hotel located in the heart of the theatre district. This 5-Star hotel dominates the corner of Leicester Square, famous for its glamorous film premieres. This luxury hotel is one of our top choices because it combines grandeur with elegance, comfort and value, everything a great hotel should be - plus an exciting location close to all the major attractions including Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Soho, China Town, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Regent and Oxford Streets. We love this hotel for its location and the décor of the rooms, which are richly appointed, luxurious with beautiful marble bathrooms and designer furnishings. Everything about this hotel is perfection.

Ecuador has now become one of the most treasured tourist adventures in South America. Sitting right on the equator it has a unique combination of great cultural wealth, natural and archaeological sites where tourists can bond with nature and history.  Salinas Beach is just one of the idyllic places to relax with both high quality and value hotels, where you can enjoy the beach, watch an indescribable sunset and enjoy the boardwalk for a very romantic evening. This exciting country will be featured in a special issue coming in 2017.

Incredible Predators 3D takes a detailed look at the remarkable strategies the Planet’s top hunters use to succeed - deconstructing their tactics as never before.  Advanced filming techniques, including the latest gyro stabilized cameras, put the audience right beside the predators as they hunt, whether on land or under the sea.

Far from being a film about killing, Incredible Predators 3D focuses on strategy and the huge effort hunters must go in order to survive. In fact, most predators fail most of the time. It’s why they are the hardest working animals on the Planet. To have any hope of success they must be at the very top of their game.
Incredible Predators 3D features the most iconic hunters on earth, like polar bears, cheetahs, leopards and blue whales. The audience will be emotionally engaged with these key characters as they learn about their challenges and dilemmas. Wherever they live on our planet, predators are at the top of the food chain.

When they are doing well, we know the habitats they live in are healthy too.  The competition between predators and prey are the most dramatic events in nature but this relationship is also essential to the balance of nature. Incredible Predators 3D is the perfect blend of genuine animal drama and learning.

Review by Roy Webb


Cameron Mackintosh's spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera is on tour across America. Featuring brilliant new scenic design by Paul Brown, Tony Award-winning original costume design by Maria Björnson, lighting design by Tony Award winner Paule Constable, new choreography by Scott Ambler, and with staging by director Laurence Connor. 

   This production, overseen by Matthew Bourne and Cameron Mackintosh, boasts many exciting special effects including the show’s legendary chandelier. My only comment is an over zealous use of pyrotechnics. The beloved story and thrilling score is captivating and Katie Travis was simply perfect as Christine Daae' – with songs like “Music of the Night,” “All I Ask Of You,” and “Masquerade” – was  performed by a solid cast and powerful orchestra, making this PHANTOM one of the largest productions now on tour. If you seen it before go see it again and if you never saw it then go see what exciting theater is all about.

First things first! GO SEE THE PLAY!  You know the movie. The play exceeds expectations as it brings the same joyous feelings as the film. The film was not expected to be a hit and almost went to directly to VHS before its release in 1987. Usually, a successful play is turned into a movie so it nice to see a film that surprised everyone by grossing over 200 million dollars transformed into a theatrical work of art. Was the movie biographical?  Placed in 1963, Frances "Baby" Houseman, a sweet daddy's girl, goes with her family to a resort in upstate New York'. Baby has grown up in privileged surroundings was expected to marry a doctor, just like her father. Eleanor Bergstein, the creator grew up in Brooklyn, her father was a doctor and she has said she would go to risky neighborhoods to experience dirty dancing.
Stephen Brimson Lewis, Tim Mitchell and Jon Driscoll have done a beautiful job bringing the visuals sets to life keeping the feel of a movie, really creative work. The music which won multiple Grammys did not have The Drifters "Save the Last Dance for Me" and "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" by Marvin Gaye which Eleanor Bergstein, the creator wanted in the film but was not able to get the rights. Great to see those songs in the play as the music moves you as it did in the film. The cast is flawless and Chante Carmel is beyond good and sets the level that everyone else has to keep up with and they all do! Not out front but always in view is the orchestra and they are the perfect cherry on top of this magical sundae! Review at the Kravis Center for national tour dates click here.

Venice Carnival 2018

Carnival in Venice is a one-of-a-kind celebration suspended between past and present with a traditional local allure featuring many event-within-the-event. Among these, the starting two-day Festa Veneziana with its typical masked regattas, Venice will host one of the most beautiful masquerades feasts in the world: This will be the main attraction for thousands of tourists who crowd the streets and squares of the whole city, dressed in masks and costumes, from the simplest to the most magnificent precious and sumptuous, the pride of Venetian craftsmanship.

Throughout the city, there will be demonstrations, parades and costume parties that will continue at night in the sumptuous Venetian palaces where you can breathe an eighteenth-century atmosphere.

The nerve center of the feast will be, as always, Piazza San Marco. Here, on 4 February will be held the traditional and highly anticipated “volo dell'angelo”, which officially opens the Carnival with the "flight" from St Mark's bell tower. The festivities close at the famous and highly anticipated "Svolo de L'Aquila" from St Mark's campanile.

Resort and Travel Magazine's  "5 Star Award" for the best family resort on Orlando's famous International Drive. Perfect for families based upon quality, value, and location. CoCo Key's features include comfortable guest rooms, Orlando’s only 54,000 sq. ft. canopy-covered outdoor water park with 14 slides, 4 heated pools, a 6.500 sq. ft. arcade, and on-site dining. Close to everything Orlando!
