Why We Want To Go On An Eight-Day Emerald Waterways River Cruise Through Europe

Cruises have always had an air of adventure and romance to them. It’s exciting to discover new places, try new foods, and experience new cultures. And there’s the romance of alone time with someone, candlelit tables-for-two at dinner, lounging side-by-side in the sun, enjoying a show together or dancing in the evening.

It’s The Love Boat TV show in real life!

Explore Bocas del Toro, Panama

No trip to Panama would be complete without a visit to the Caribbean islands of Bocas del Toro, near the Panama-Costa Rica border. We had the chance to visit twice while we lived in Panama City, the first time during the country’s Carnival celebration and the second time when we needed a break from city life. We got some nice photos while there so I thought you’d like to see them, in case you’re thinking about visiting.

Cavtat, Croatia: A Refreshing Alternative to Dubrovnik

If you dread feeling closed in by Dubrovnik’s ancient city walls there’s a refreshing, wooded alternative nearby where you can breathe fresh air and relax. Just south of Dubrovnik is a small harbor town named Cavtat. Though travelers have been going there for years, we’d not have known it if our driver hadn’t recommended that we drive a few minutes down the coast to see it.

One Day in Dubrovnik: How Much Can You Really See?

Dan and I had the chance to spend a day in Dubrovnik while we were on our recent Mediterranean cruise. It’s one of the cities I’ve always wanted to visit because of those photos of its stunning tile-red roofs and medieval stone buildings jutting out into the middle of the sparkling, azure blue Adriatic Sea.

Yes, Dubrovnik is most definitely a must-see place.

3 of the Most Romantic Places We Have Been To, So Far

We love it when people ask us questions, and we got a fun one on our As We Saw It Facebook page this week.

Bob Royal: As a world traveler…. What is the most romantic place you guys have visited? And why?

Dan Bibb:  Wow man, that’s a tough question.

Couple walking along Jimbaran Beach in Bali, Indonesia

To start with, I could never narrow it down to one “place” in the world. The world is too big, the romantic places too innumerable, and mostly Linda and I have not been to them all …YET!

So the best thing for me to do is review the places we have been and give you a few suggestions. I will include some photos of them and will answer your second question, “And why?”

So buddy, let’s get started, but understand they are in alphabetical order, not in any special order of preference.
