  1. Italian Cottage

    Italian Cottage: Chico, California

    $0.00

    I grew up in Chico (northern California). I loved it then and love it even more now since I go to visit often. It is a small college town with beautiful tree lined streets. The campus, Chico State is right in the center of town and so there are a lot of restaurants and shops there. The Esplanade is a long main street (as a teenager I used to cruise with friends down the Esplanade) and you go a little beyond town to see the Italian Cottage. There are two locations.

    The Hermitage: Home and Plantation of a President

    $0.00

    Any time you are traveling in or around Nashville, TN, a visit to Andrew Jackson’s home, The Hermitage, is well worth it.  His home is a great window into Jackson’s tumultuous life and presidency.  The house tour is one of the best we’ve experienced.  Our tour guides were in period clothing and were excellent storytellers.  The house is filled with original family artifacts, giving a real idea of what day to day life was like for the wealthy in the 1830’s.  The French landscape wallpaper in the curved center atrium was hand painted in dark shades of blue indigo dating to the period.

    Bangalore : A Rendezvous with India’s Cosmopolitan Metropolis

    $0.00

    Bangalore has that sort of inimitable notion of laid-back, luxurious living that is unique to the city. Opulence abounds, yet pretension is thankfully absent amongst the warm, cosmopolitan population of India’s IT hub. From the expansive Cubbon Park, which sits in the center of the city (a mini-central park if you will) to the expatriate filled suburb of Whitefield, the city is a charming destination.

    JORDAN - Ahlan wa sah lan ("Welcome")

    $0.00

    Jordan is one of the most culturally rich and magnificent places to visit in the entire world.  The breadth of civilization and depth of history is overwhelming: from the Nabateans to the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Umayyads to the Ottomans, the history truly humbles one's knowledge of ancient cultures and traditions.  The visitor immediately recognizes the graciousness of the people, who represent a crossroads of cultures: there is a mixture of Palestinian, Chechen, Turkmen, Circassian, and Druze.  The one word that best describes this country is tolerance.... and a celebration of cultural diversity.  This is reflected in their artwork and cuisine.

    WHITSTABLE - England

    $0.00

    When you live in a seaside holiday location it’s all too easy to take the views, facilities and ambiance of your own town for granted. I guess it's a minor case of familiarity breeding contempt.

    Take my home town of Whitstable for instance; it’s a small, pretty seaside town with a working fishing harbour and a population of 30,000 that nestles into a small, pebbly cove on the Northeast coast of Kent.

    Barely five miles north of the historic cathedral city of Canterbury, 20-odd miles from the ports of Dover and Folkestone and a 60-mile commute to London, it is the place I call home.

    Our compact former railway workers’ cottage lies just 300 yards from the beach, yet I’ll admit, I’d become a little blasé about the place until a recent readers’ poll in The Times newspaper voted our little town into the top 20 places to live in the United Kingdom.

    It stunned me that people all over Britain aspired to live here! So why is it that Londoners buy weekender homes here and holidaymakers flock here, snubbing seemingly more exotic destinations all over the world, to take in the sights of Whitstable?

    Allow me, a relative newcomer to the town, to tell you.
