Simply The Best: July 2017


At the end of July and through August, TPOL was the victim of malware. That was inconvenient and annoying for everyone. Regardless, here were the best posts from the month of July.

  1. Guns & Butter: Marseille Travel Guide

    Bienvenue a Marseille, a city overlooked by many. After a short stay in Paris, I came here to celebrate my all important 35th birthday. There was plenty to do and with only two nights, not enough time to do it.
  2. Medina, Marrakech: The Detox Juice Bar

  4. What’s Hot in Vegas: Summer 2017 Edition

    Vegas is the worst city in the world, yet somehow I end up there at least once a year. Last year I went for NBA Summer League and for my interview with Richard Quest for CNN Business Traveller. This year I once again returned for NBA Summer League. I went Monday-Friday, ideal times to avoid amateur hour and overpriced everything. Here’s a list of what to do and where to stay based on my last trip.
  5. Amex Benz Platinum Retention Call Success!

    I am happy I have at least one more year of Platinum goodness.
  6. Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge LGA: Sad!

    The Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge, despite its dignified name is a sad lounge.
  7. How I Almost Left Marrakech After One Night 
    Sorry, Marrakech may be the new hot spot for tourists, but it isn’t for me. After only a night here, I made the executive decision to leave.
