    Japanese Ukiyo-e, which translates to “pictures of the floating world,” is a genre of art that flourished in Japan from the 17th through 19th centuries. Thanks especially to the advancement of woodblock printing, Japanese artists such as: Toyokuni Utagawa 1769-1825 and his disciples Kunisada Utagawa and Kuniyoshi Utagawa, Kitagawa Utamaro 1750-1806, Ando Hiroshige 1797-1858, and Hokusai Katsushika 1760-1849, became famous both in Japan and abroad.

    The Sunset Motel: Brevard, North Carolina

    $0.00

    I have such fond recollections of traveling with my parents as a child and staying in motels on our summer vacation travels. Sadly, those establishments have all but vanished and we are left with high rise properties.

Well, fear not, there are a few nostalgic places left and here's one that I think you will love. Not only is it in a wonderful location, but it will bring back a lot of memories.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    MINIMIZE YOUR RISK ON TRAVEL: MEDICAL EVACUATION INSURANCE FOR REMOTE TRAVEL

    $0.00

    You are making flight arrangements for that special trip: an exotic locale, an adventure tour, or a scientific expedition.  Maybe someplace featured in these very pages!  Your immediate excitement has been tempered by sobering thoughts of health and safety.  You have searched the internet for travel advisory information about your developing world destination.  The travel agent may have been to the area but probably stayed in a nice hotel in the capital city.  You will stay there but have plans for a journey to see the temples in rural areas where accommodations are likely lower standard.   You have been advised to sign up for travel insurance but you are inundated with confusing choices about insurance.   There is just the usual generic advice about the site - drink only bottled water, get immunization for hepatitis and meningitis, have a tetanus shot within the last 10 years, eat only well-cooked food.  Your local physician has little experience with travel medicine.  Information about local health resources is non-existent or unreliable.  Geopolitical information resources say the area is reasonably stable but there has been sporadic violent insurgent activity in rural areas for years and travel is advised with caution.  Zika virus has been reported in the adjacent country.  What should you do to prepare for your travel safety?
