  2. A Boomer Spring Break: Jekyll Island Club Hotel - Georgia

    A Boomer Spring Break: Jekyll Island Club Hotel - Georgia

    $0.00

    Ahh – spring is in the air, the stores have the bathing suits on display – it must be time for Spring Break! Back in the day, we all headed south to Ft. Lauderdale. Now, it seems Mexico is the place to be on either coast. Well, that is all well and good, we had our time to party, but we still want to experience Spring Break, just perhaps not in the same way we did in our twenties. Winter has had its way with us, so we long for some sun and fun, but don’t necessarily want to be where the “kids” are. Well, I have just the spot for you!

  3. Ships of the desert for grandpa and lucky boy

    Israel and the Holy Land for Grandparents on Multi-Generational Trips

    $0.00

    The children are grown and are now parents of their own children. Yes, grandparenting is a joy! But long distances, and complex work and study schedules, often hinder family get-togethers and staying in close contact. Unless we are lucky enough to see the grandchildren on a weekly basis, each reunion is almost like meeting them for the first time.

    Chance Encounters of a Photographing Tourist

    $0.00

    It was late morning when my trekking group left the village of Ghandruk in the Middle Hills of Nepal. Our route out of town just happened to cross in front of a small brick house with a crude stone porch. A young girl was waving enthusiastically as we approached. She hopped down the stairs and started running toward us, stopping abruptly in front of me at what must have felt like a safe distance. For a few seconds, the two of us just looked at each other, neither exactly sure what to do next. It was a chance encounter between two very different people who had lived very different lives. The only thing we had in common was a curiosity about the other.

  5. Seehotel Gruener Baum: Halstatt, Austria

    Seehotel Gruener Baum: Halstatt, Austria

    $0.00

    Do you believe in fairy tales? If so, I found the place that I dreamed of as a child. Halstatt, Austria, sometimes referred to as the “Pearl of Austria.” This country is full of gorgeous vistas, so it's hard to pin point just one spot. Located in Upper Austria, about two hours from Salzburg and 3 hours from Vienna, it is the oldest still-inhabited village in Europe and a World Heritage Site. This is the perfect place to visit any time of year, but my favorite is summer. Known for it's salt production, you can tour the world's first known salt mine.

  6. Beyond His Expectations

    Beyond His Expectations

    $0.00

    Mandatory retirement does not accord with every person’s soul. It did not with Dr. Amporn Wathanavong’s. He was not accustomed to stillness. His life had been full of errant breezes. Like bamboo, he had become used to the wind’s force. He had learned that at times he had to bend all the way down to avoid snapping. Still, he had always found his way back to the center.

  7. A Historic 110 Year-Old, New York City Italian-American Bakery Reopens in the New Jersey Suburbs

    A Historic 110 Year-Old, New York City Italian-American Bakery Reopens in the New Jersey Suburbs

    $0.00

    On my way home from the Chiropractor, two towns away in in Clifton, NJ, I made a detour to visit Allwood Bakery for some treats for my family. Allwood has been a fixture in Clifton for over forty years. Unfortunately, it was just after 6 pm, and they were already closed.  At the same time, however, I noticed that literally next door was a new bakery-café that I had never seen before.  It was still opened and quite busy (even though they too were supposed to close at 6 pm).  I stopped in and discovered they had authentic baba-rums, cannolis, Napolians, Pignoli tarts, Cassatine Siciliane, mini and full-size cheese cakes, and other Italian classic pastries that were not among the more “contemporary” and “American” baked goods that are Allwood’s specialties.

  8. A Barrel Full of Monkeys

    A Barrel Full of Monkeys

    $0.00

    Wildlife encounters, whether intended or not, are often a highlight on travel.  While significant precautions are emphasized for large animals, it is generally obvious to keep a safe distance.  But what about some of those cute smaller animals that seem harmless?  Doesn’t everyone want to pet that cute little monkey in the tree outside your hut? Not so fast….

    Take New Jersey’s Lighthouse Challenge

    $0.00

    Growing up on the Gulf Coast of South Florida, lighthouses were not part of the landscape.  I  saw my first—St. Augustine Light, built in 1789—on a family trip to the other side of the state, and was enthralled. Both by the light and its keeper, both keeping house and keeping ships, crew, and cargo safe from the perils of the sea.

    I honestly don't know how I've been in travel this long and have never been to the island of Jamaica, but somehow I missed it. Lucky for me, the Jamaica Tourist Board gave me the opportunity to make a visit to Montego Bay and Ocho Rios and I'm so happy they did.

    California Highway 1 Discovery Route And Morro Bay - Part Three

    $0.00

    Well, guess what – it was time to eat again! All that fresh sea air makes one hungry! So I walked over to the Blue Skye Café where I was able to sit outside and my server Jesse took great care of me. The breakfast was delicious (pictured above) and an added bonus was running into Pat and Don, two locals who come here every morning to enjoy the view, friends and great food. I was lucky enough to sit with them the 2 days I was there and they just proved once again what a delightful and friendly city this truly is. AJ is the manager so be sure to say hello to him as well – he moved here from LA and just loves it.

    California Highway 1 Discovery Route Part Four

    $0.00

    With a full stomach and an armload of cookies, I headed back on the California Highway 1 Discovery Route for the town of Harmony, population 18. It took about 15 minutes from Cayucos, with more amazing scenery along the way. So, what does one do in Harmony – why, go wine tasting at the Harmony Cellars! www.HarmonyCellars.com Michael Rice greeted me in the Tasting Room for a marvelous selection of their red, white and dessert wines. They were all flavorful and reasonably priced. You can go out on their grounds sitting high up in the hills and have a picnic as you enjoy a bottle of wine. They host dinners and special events throughout the year, so be sure and check their website before you visit. Photos from the vineyard are pictured above. If you have time before you leave, stop by Harmony Glassworks, an art gallery and studio that is worth a visit.

    Like women all over the world, cosmetic makeup plays an important part in preparing for my day whether I am heading off to work in the city, traveling internationally or just gardening at home. Let's face it - none of us want to look one day older than we already are! With the use of a little foundation to even out my tone and especially with the addition of an SP factor, I am also protecting my skin against the hash effects of the sun.
