Visiting Modern Myanmar

Visiting Modern Myanmar

As our cruise ship slowly entered the mouth of the Irrawaddy River, I wondered what it would be like to be in a country so cut off from the world. What I discovered was that, despite the fact that there were some societal differences, it was still easy to navigate life in Myanmar

Not every trip, however, can be a full-blown health and wellness vacation — that doesn’t mean it’s not easy to squeeze in some well-being time if you know where to look.

Loews Regency Update

Loews Regency Update

Last summer, while on vacation in New York, I stayed at the Loews Regency Hotel. This Loews, on Park Avenue in Manhattan, is an iconic property and was at the center of the glamorous 1950’s and ’60s New York social scene. Staying there felt like I was in an episode of “Mad Men” — I halfway expected to see Don Draper sneaking upstairs for a clandestine rendezvous.

Dinosaurs Live in California

Dinosaurs Live in California

The World’s Biggest Dinosaurs-Cabazon Dinosaurs, as they are now called by their owners, are an appealing roadside stop for all kinds of people: families, art fans, dinosaur enthusiasts, lovers of weird things and, as I found out, creationists, who bought the dinosaurs circa 2005.

Mazatlan Makes a Comeback

Mazatlan Makes a Comeback

In the last three years or so, the media hasn’t been particularly kind to Mazatlan, Mexico. But as I learned at a recent event hosted by the state of Sinaloa — all that is about to change.

Finding the Mediterranean in Switzerland

Finding the Mediterranean in Switzerland

For most people, the first images that come to mind when picturing Switzerland are snow-covered Alps or sloping green hillsides dotted with farms.

Getting Into Berlin’s Hottest Club

Getting Into Berlin’s Hottest Club

Berlin is internationally recognized for its nightlife options, from open-air bars along the River Spree to mega-clubs that blast electronic dance music all weekend long. So, on my third trip to the city that truly never sleeps, I decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about and go clubbing with an out-of-town friend.

How to Drink Olive Oil in Italy

How to Drink Olive Oil in Italy

I swigged a few thimbles in a restaurant by the Spanish Steps, and then some more in a tasting room at a Chianti Classico farm: olive oil (though there was plenty of wine, too). Before my last trip to Italy, I had only enjoyed my olive oil the usual ways: for stir-frying and dressing raw and cooked foods. But there I was, in Rome, doing as they do.

Discovering Casa Andina in Peru

Discovering Casa Andina in Peru

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Peru on Globus’ Peru Splendors tour. It was an amazing trip, from the guides to the properties. One of the elements of the program that most surprised me was the Casa Andina hotel brand.
