Sometimes it’s easy to forget that “we” Tony & Angie and the BlogCatalog team and yes, you’ve guessed it, part of The Boowaha team, as well, live in a pretty popular tourist city.

Most of our city’s income is from tourism, it can be difficult sometimes to accept that decisions from elected officials are based on the needs of people who on the average usually spend only a total of 72 hours in our town.

We forget that there are aspects of our city that draw thousands of sightseers every year to San Antonio. To most, these landmarks are common places, but to a visitor, especially... Read More

On a recent holiday weekend, my wife and I were contemplating a get away from our town, a suburb of bustling Washington, D.C. Our thoughts were to the usual places like Ocean City, the Blue Ridge Mountains or Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay. While all of them had an appeal, the place that we landed on was our city to the north, Baltimore. What a splendid choice.

I booked a Marriott for one night that was close to Baltimore’s famous Inner Harbor. In the morning, on a sunny and cool temp day we jumped into the car and drove the 40 miles to the hotel. The trip took about 45 minutes as... Read More

Whether you pick up your first club at the age of four (as I did) or 64 (as a family friend did recently), golf is like a drug: once you've had a taste, you crave more. The problem for golfers everywhere is how to get their fix whilst on vacation with non-golfing family members. The answer? A golf resort.

Golf Channel Solutions estimates that there are currently 26.2 million golfers just in the United States, and there are thought to be in the region of 100 million golfers world-wide. Golfers, if they were to unite together around the world as a special interest group, could wield some... Read More

What drives a person to attempt a feat of unparalleled danger and peril such as a solo sailing around the globe? History is filled with stories of failed efforts and an occasional successful journey most recently in 2 trips completed, one by a young American teen boy and then an English lad who set a world record as the youngest ever to do so. An even younger American teenage girl now seeks to beat all records for age and speed.

Abby Sunderland is the latest to test herself and her boat with a global passage. Since she left Marina Del Ray, California in January of this year, she has... Read More

The continuing saga of a quest for a world record by a young lady sailor places her in the annals of people of all ages who have defied the odds and took risks to achieve a goal. On a specially built sailboat called Wild Eyes, a 16 year old California girl, Abby Sunderland, passed the 70 day mark at sea in her journey to circumnavigate the globe alone and to do it in record time. On a navigation that took her south from her base of Marina Del Ray on January 23rd, she passed through the infamous doldrums, rounded Cape Horn and headed north into the Atlantic.

Abby is no ordinary girl.... Read More

Las Vegas ...An entire city built as a grandiose backstage for the largest deliberate illusion man has ever created. A city built with a single purpose in mind: to take your material possessions in return for hopes and dreams. An ostentatious illusion created to make you believe that with a role of the dice, you too can change your luck.

Just like most other religious cities, like Guadalupe in Mexico or the city of Medjugorje, the pilgrims to Las Vegas believe that their fate will not follow that of the millions who depart worse off. Instead, they all hold the belief that they are the... Read More

What is it in our human nature that allows us to conquer our fears and go out into the unknown? There have been many examples in history of those who pushed themselves to the limit; who took on a challenge without knowing all the dangers they may face. Great seafarers like Magellan who circumnavigated the globe when maps were poor and Ernest Shackelton who led an expedition in the freezing Antarctic represent that spirit. A remarkable contemporary example of this is occurring at this moment as a young 16 old girl from California seeks to be a modern day Magellan with one difference – to do... Read More
