Curaçao: Color and Character in the Caribbean

Curaçao: Color and Character in the Caribbean

Truth? Adventure is not my gig. I’m the luxury guy. On a perfectly fabulous day, I’d rather spend hours poolside in a cabana sipping frosty cold cocktails, with intermittent visits to a spa, than hike to a waterfall. True story. For me, the up close and personal beauty of nature is most often best viewed...

Out on the Road Southwest: Las Vegas, Pt. 2

The final leg of my latest roadtrip across the American Southwest with Davey Wavey was, thankfully, decidedly less rustic and more in the vein of how I generally prefer to travel. That is to say, it was more luxurious and there was not a teepee or recently slaughtered animal anywhere on the itinerary from this...

Out on the Road Southwest: Palm Springs, Scottsdale & Beyond, Pt. 1

Call me a sucker, or a glutton for punishment even, but when my good friend, YouTuber Davey Wavey invited me to join him on a new roadtrip, I didn’t hesitate even an instant before saying yes – despite the obvious foreboding that should naturally have accompanied such a decision given our most recent escapades in...

Austin | Trekking Across Texas, Pt. 3

The final chapter of our Lone Star State trek finds us in Austin (aka Hipsterville). Austin On the second to last day of our journey across Texas, we zipped into Austin and made a beeline to Lake Travis Zipline Adventures. O ye of little faith who thought this trip could possibly end without a spot...

Houston | Trekking Across Texas, Pt. 2

On day 4 our Lone Star State road trip took us to Houston. Houston If Dallas hadn’t beat them to the punch, it occurs to me that Houston might have just as easily adopted the tagline “Big Things Happen Here” as well because let there be no doubt that Houston is certainly big. The city,...

Dallas | Trekking Across Texas, Pt. 1

The open road holds an enduring allure and there is arguably no destination with more of said road than Texas. Or at least such is the feeling experienced by anyone who has ever dared engage in the daunting, yet revelatory adventure of driving across America’s second largest state. Defined by its reputation for cattle, cowboys,...
Spain: The Ultimate Road Trip

Spain: The Ultimate Road Trip

Ten days. During a normal work week, that seems like an eternity. In other circumstances, that same length of time can pass in an instant. With that in mind and a partner-in-crime in tow, I set out to make the most of a whirlwind 10-day journey, from the southern reaches of Spain up to the...

Out on the Road Spain with Davey Wavey

Duane Wells and Davey Wavey on a road trip across Spain together for 10 days?  That just sounds crazy right? And yet it happened. It wouldn’t be a stretch to describe Davey and I as the modern incarnation of the odd couple. Take for example the fact I am an unabashed clotheshorse who lives to get...

Ten days and five cities across Spain from Malaga to Costa Brava provide a colorful backdrop for one very eventful roadtrip.
Day 22 | LivingWells California Road Trip – San Francisco, Part 2

Day 22 | LivingWells California Road Trip – San Francisco, Part 2

Ironically, or not so ironically, on the last day of my LivingWells California 2014 road trip, I found myself traveling the shortest distance – just a few short blocks from the Hotel Adagio to the Hotel G. Originally built in 1909 and completely renovated in 2014, the 153-room boutique hotel maintains a connection to its...
Day 21 | LivingWells California Road Trip – San Francisco, Part 1

Day 21 | LivingWells California Road Trip – San Francisco, Part 1

Never let it be said that leaving a town like Carmel-by-the-Sea is easy, but road trips do, by definition, require movement.  So, on Day 21 of my great California adventure, I took one last glimpse at the seaside village of Carmel as it faded from view and rolled onward to the final stop of what...
Day 20 | LivingWells California Road Trip – Carmel

Day 20 | LivingWells California Road Trip – Carmel

Anyone who knows me well will tell you that the only thing I abhor more than early morning activities is waiting in line to indulge in early morning activities. So when I tell you that, at my suggestion, we purposefully awoke at the crack of dawn on Day 20 in Jenner, CA just so that...
Day 18 – 19 | LivingWells California Road Trip - Sonoma Coast

Day 18 – 19 | LivingWells California Road Trip – Sonoma Coast

One of the things that most often surprises the unsuspecting about Sonoma is the sheer size and scope of its boundaries. In fact, even certified Sonomads like myself can still find themselves jolted by a sense of awe at the recognition of just how vast Sonoma County is – which is exactly what happened to...

Day 17 | LivingWells California Road Trip – Petaluma

Day 17 of my California adventure revved into high gear with lunch in downtown Santa Rosa at Stark’s Steakhouse, yet another of the Stark Reality restaurant outposts, which are consistently among the best eateries in Sonoma (don’t miss Willi’s Seafood and Raw Bar in Healdsburg which is a personal favorite among favorites). In keeping with...
