ALGILA ORTIGIA CHARME HOTEL – Our preferred hotel in Syracuse on our Sicily Photo Adventure, and the one we love the most is the Algilà Ortigia Charme Hotel on Ortigia Island in Syracuse, Sicily. There is something very special about the Algilà. We stay at hundreds of hotels around the world on our photo adventures, and Algilà is right up there with some of the best. Perhaps it’s the European elegance, charm and wonderful location, combined with the level of comfort often found in bed & breakfasts.
VIETNAM – A DAY IN THE LIFE (A focus on Hanoi). Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi has been in existence for more then 1000 years. It hasn’t always been the capital in this once-divided country, but it has always played an important role in the region. Modern Hanoi is a bustling cosmopolitan city with beautiful historic hotels, great French-inspired cuisine, and local designer shopping boutiques. Spending a day in Hanoi requires a curious mind, good walking shoes, a hearty appetite and plenty of space on your camera memory card. Walk with me, as we spend a day in Hanoi.
