Sue Groenewegen is dressing conservatively. Dan Church plans to blend in. And Robin Smith is wearing “less bling.” It was bound to happen, with all the recent incidents of terrorism and dire State Department warnings. The last thing anyone wants to do this summer, it seems, is...

I wasn't in Chelsea when I awoke this morning but Lisbon. My brain's so foggy with jet-lag, though, that, when I opened my eyes, I wasn't sure at first where I was.
The My Way Alpine Europe tour I'm leading continues to brave new heights. Here in France, the Aiguille du Midi caps a rock needle high above the alpine resort of Chamonix and just across from Mont Blanc. At 12,602 feet above sea level, the air is thin, people are...
I stood in line, restlessly shifting from left foot to right as little rivulets of sweat ran down the nape of my neck. The Bangkok heat was not meant for standing. Outdoors. To take a selfie with a tiger.
I had only the slightest reluctance about going to Rosemary and Vine, a charming new Mediterranean vegetarian restaurant in Rye, N.Y., but was immediately won over by the tantalizing items on the menu: gazpacho blanco, babaganoush, truffled fettuccine, and a great deal more I was ravenous to try.
According to estimates from the International Olympic Committee, 480,000 fans are expected to flock to Brazil this summer as the Olympic torch is lit for the very first time in this country, and the survey results suggest that there are a few things foreigners should keep in mind during their stay.
After a long, bumpy, semi freezing, ten hour overnight bus ride with JJ Express, we finally arrived in Bagan around 5am (it was still pitch black outside). Luckily, neither of us needed to hug the porcelain god along the way, which is always a positive, especially given there wasn't a bathroom on board.
A 27 hour journey has finally brought me to my next destination: Indonesia. So happy to be here and so happy you're with me! Particularly while I navigate the initial culture shock- not surprisingly the most I've encountered anywhere so far.
In our family, making the most of summer means frequent weekend trips. It also means cramming as much leisure time into 48 hours as possible. For my husband and I, Key West is always an obvious choice, as it's a short plane ride from Boston and it never lacks for things to do.
On a recent trip to Steeles Tavern Manor Bed & Breakfast in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, I thought of a thousand questions I wanted to ask the innkeepers as I meandered along the path, past the spring-fed pond and babbling creek.
Covering up a bit more than usual at the beach while your wife or sister is beautifully covered is a wonderful form of solidarity. It's also a great form of modesty. Your wife or sister will appreciate it.
We, at Global Yodel, sent Kimberly Genevieve, Southern California local and photographer extraordinaire, to Hotel La Jolla, Curio Collection by Hilton to experience the beautiful hotel, shoot some photos, and create a Local Guide for this seaside San Deigo village La Jolla, California, full...
Rick Steves Europe,
Europe Tour Company,
On the My Way Alpine Europe Tour I'm currently leading, my assistant, Trish Feaster, is sharing a few of her guiding tricks -- like her (now famous among our guides) "Tour Member DJ Party Party." During a particularly flat stretch of autobahn, volunteers from the group share their smartphones with their...
Sunshine, sand, swimsuits, and salty tang in the air, Palma de Mallorca is a well-known spot for those looking for a good time. But beyond the famous nightlife and sunny days, what is there to do in Mallorca's main city? Here are four reasons to make Palma de Mallorca a destination on your next holiday!
There are those who love it, and those who hate it. Either way, street art is very much a "thing" all over the world, and -- just like with eating local food, visiting local bars, and attending local-centric events -- viewing street art helps visitors get a true understanding of a destination's vibe.
The popular resort town of Zermatt, Switzerland, for skiing the Swiss Alps and climbing the famous Matterhorn, is both remote and a perfect place to visit during the offseason, September and October.
Sixty five minutes from Mumbai is the jewel city of India, Udaipur. A city of lakes surrounded by hills and history, makes it one of the most romantic and historically significant place in India .
Image Source With the holiday frenzy about to begin, most people are afraid, or rather cautious of visiting the UK after their vote to leave the EU. Will the application process change? How do you apply for a trip to...
"There are McDonald's and Starbucks all over Cuba now, right?" "I've already missed my chance to see the island as it was before the U.S. relaxed restrictions." "Now that I can fly a bunch of different airlines to Cuba, why shouldn't I go whenever I feel like it?" In my...
Sir Charles Darwin,
Strait Of Magellan,
If we travel to vicariously experience other eras, as many think we do, then Patagonia, the Beagle Channel, and the Strait of Magellan evoke a magical time when exploration and commerce opened up the new world.
