1. Airline Ticket Cautionary Tale
It seemed like a simple request, but it turned out to be one with as many answers as there were American Airlines service people handling our calls.
2. Hard Rock Hotel, Dominican Republic
The recently opened Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Punta Cana, ushers in a new era for the music themed chain. The 1700 room property in the Dominican Republic is the Hard Rock's first all-inclusive. The beachfront behemoth, comes with a conference center, a casino and sometimes free concerts.
3. Ecuador’s Andes Mountains
we came to explore Ecuador’s Andes. Instead of the Galapagos' frigate birds, tortoises and blue-footed boobies, we discoverd a different, but equally alluring landscape of mountains, towering volcanoes and glassy lakes.
4. Shopping in Shanghai and Beijing, China
For those who consider shopping a trip essential, China is magic. The vendors at Shanghai’s and Beijing’s markets hawk everything—tea pots, Buddhas, pearl necklaces, scarves, jade bracelets, cheap watches, "designer bags," silk shawls and more. But you need to know where to look and how to shop.
5. The Best of Aruba
Aruba is a good choice for a summer visit to the Caribbean. Like Bonaire and Curaçao, Aruba is situated below the “hurricane belt” in the Southern Caribbean. As a result, big storms remain unlikely, although possible. Here’s a guide to some of the best of Aruba.
6. Lancaster, PA, Surprises
In Lancaster, PA, we enjoyed a mix of urban sophistication plus comforting rural landscapes. We expected—and looked forward to-- the farmlands since Lancaster County beats as the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. What surprised us: the galleries, vintage shops, boutiques and good restaurants.
7. Eat like a local in Maui, Hawaii
When you eat like a local in Maui, be prepared to savor a wide range of food influenced by the Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Portuguese and other immigrants. You can try these meals at moderately-priced restaurants.
8. Inspiring Adventure Quotes
There are many quotes about adventure and adventure living, crazy and interesting, thought provoking and inspiring; here are some of my all-time favorites.
9. Chincoteague, VA, Eco-Tours
legacy. Taking an eco-cruise with Captain Charlie Birch is a great way to spot the horses, see less-visited stretches of the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and to learn about the region’s clamming and oystering plus enjoy two hours of boating.
10. Historic Homes & Art in Winston-Salem, NC
The Winston-Salem, North Carolina, art trail weaves together a tale of tobacco, textiles and three historic houses: Reynolda, R.J. Reynolds' home; the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA), textile industrialist James Hanes' home, and Graylyn, home of tobacco executive Bowman Gray.
