My name is Brien, and I have been a technology author since 1998. Even though I have written dozens of books and thousands of articles about computer science, my real passion in life has always been travel. Thankfully, being a freelance writer has given me the flexibility to travel the world with my wife (and best friend) Taz.

Because I have been fortunate enough to have seen so much of the world and to have had so many extraordinary travel experiences, several of my friends have been trying to talk me into writing a book of my travel memoires. Even though I thought that it might be fun to write a book like that, I decided that it would be more beneficial to create this Web site so that I could share my experiences and travel tips with a broader audience than would be possible with a book.

My goal for this Web site is to help those who might be new to cruising or to foreign travel or those who might be considering visiting a destination that is outside of their comfort zone. The Cruising Tips section provides all of my best tips for getting the most out of your cruise, while the Ports and Excursions section talks about specific ports of call. You can also use our discussion forum to talk to exchange information with other cruisers,
