  1. Castillo de San Marcos (Photo by Mike Miller)

    Saint Augustine, Florida

    $0.00

    I have strong memories from my childhood vacations to Keystone Heights in north central Florida to visit my dad’s mom and family. Once each trip we would head off to Saint Augustine in my great- uncle’s Cadillac. I remember the huge old fort, the smell of the ocean, and the trees of unknown origin. Last winter, we stopped for an afternoon on our way to Seabrook Island, South Carolina. My return trip brought back these great memories and much more.

    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!

    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.

    No Passport Travel

    $0.00

    Imagine a picture-perfect sunset, a cool island breeze, and the relaxing sound of waves crashing against the shore while you sip the juice out of a fresh coconut. The thought of a tropical vacation is most enticing when you just want to get away, or at any time if we’re being honest. It’s a fantasy many of us long for, but we often think that jetting off to an exotic location that can offer all of this and more requires too much effort due to them being international destinations. Of course international travel mandates a current passport, which means going through customs and an even longer visit with the TSA. This is even more distressing if you don’t have a passport or if your passport has expired and you need to renew it. At the airport, security is magnified and even the smallest details will be scrutinized. If this has completely turned you off to traveling with a passport, we’ve got good news. Fortunately, there are beautiful tropical vacations you can visit with just your driver’s license in hand.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Queen Mary 2 Journey - Luxury Personified: Part One

    $0.00

    REMEMBER WHEN?   LUXURY WAS A GIVEN, AND THE CUNARD SLOGAN WAS “GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN”? That was in the Golden Age of transatlantic crossings. When people really going to or from someplace had to resort to sea travel to go long distances.  With the advent of jet planes, carrying more passengers at greater speeds, ocean travel has become almost extinct. But, the QUEEN MARY 2 keeps it alive in all its luxury and splendor on its run from New York (“Brooklyn!”) to Southampton (and some other European destinations).  And I’m telling you, if you have the time, and the money, then treat yourselves to 7 days of luxury, elegance, grand living, and of being suspended in time and place. Getting there really was more than half the fun!!!
