Hotels Perfect (yet Affordable) for Summer 2015

Seen on The Rake: Globe-Trotter for James Bond

October 29, 2012


James Bond’s Globe-Trotter suitcase Now that James Bond: Skyfall has premiered, Bond fever is definitely in full swing and meeting a confluence of end-of-year travel dreams.

May 22, 2012


I like to travel light yet heavy on style but sadly I’ve never been able to find a camera that matched my sartorial sensitivities.

March 25, 2011


It is Hollywood irony that most of the beautiful locations featured in 2006’s Casino Royale were set in the Czech Republic rather than Montenegro where his mission was actually centered; nevertheless, attracted by the luxury and opulence of these locales, I was determined to hunt them down; especially since I was heading to the Republic […]
