Been There, Do This: Victoria and Albert Museum in London

If you are a museum fiend like me, London is a fantastic city to visit. In addition to Tate Modern, British Museum and the National Gallery, travelers would be wise to add Victoria and Albert Museum to their list. Also known as V&A, the museum houses a wealth of ancient and contemporary objects.

Been There, Do This: Las Islitas Beach in San Blas, Mexico

There are plenty of reasons for travelers to stay put in Puerto Vallarta, from raucous bars to shiny all-inclusive resorts overlooking the Pacific.

Fiji Airways Offers Relief to Anxious Parents

Any time an individual flies long distances with a child, the actual flight is probably the most significant source of anxiety. There is a lot to take into account: ease of the flight for the child, happiness of the other people on the plane and, of course, your own sanity.

Been There, Do This: Driving to Bonifacio, Corsica

This particular afternoon — which I’ll never forget — almost didn’t happen. It began innocently enough. Our Windstar ship dropped us off at Corsica’s Porto-Vecchio, a small port town that is good for a quick walk but not an entire day, especially when other parts of Corsica are within reach.

Off the Grid in Big Pine Lakes, Inyo National Forest

Off the Grid in Big Pine Lakes, Inyo National Forest

Going “off the grid” to some means turning off their cell phone for a few hours. For me last fall, it meant driving 9 miles up a mountain road with absolutely no cell reception, staying in a Wi-Fi-less cabin powered only by hydroelectricity and then hiking 10 miles farther into the wilderness.
