    7 Simple Rules to Having A Healthy and Safe Trip

    $0.00

    Nowadays, we hear lots of confusion regarding the new ACA coverage during this transition. Nothing is more unsettling than traveling abroad and not knowing whether or not you should visit the local doctor because you’re not sure what’s covered and what isn’t. For me and the licensed insurance advisors at GoHealth, the online portal for finding health insurance coverage, it is important to make sure those consumers are in-the-know of their healthcare plan so that they are armed and ready for a safe and protected vacation.

    $0.00

    I recently took advantage of a long weekend and headed up to northern Ohio to visit some friends and decided to break up the trip by finding an interesting spot to have lunch and walk around a town with locally owned shops, so I contacted Amy Weirick who covers tourism marketing for the Columbus area. She suggested stopping in Worthington, just outside of Columbus and having lunch at the Worthington Inn.

  13. Lady on the wall

    A Visit with Two Families in Ghana

    $0.00

    Many times when we travel we only see the veneer of the destinations that we visit. Much more lies beneath the surface that can add a high level of richness and understanding concerning the places and people that we see in our journey. I always make a point in my travels, whether it is in the familiar territory of my own country, the United States, or in a global destination such as France or Ghana, to speak with the people that I encounter there. The amount of additional insight that we can receive is amazing. Nowhere was this more evident than in Ghana in West Africa.

    African Ancestors! Amazing New Discovery!

    $0.00

    Africa has long been known as the site of from which modern man first radiated out to populate the world. Much attention has been directed to the eastern African Great Rift Valley as the origin of humans, great apes, and chimps (hominids) but several candidates as the actual ancestor of humans (hominins) are likely evolutionary dead ends.  The attention has shifted within the last decade to new important fossil discoveries in South Africa that may fill in some of the gaps in the family tree…..which looks more and more like a bush.

    Angouleme: Balcony of the Southwest, Part Two

    $0.00

    Angouleme and the towns and countryside around it along the Charente River provide much to do and see. My approach has always been to investigate things in depth rather than trying to see every site available. Also meeting and talking to the locals gives a better feel for the locale. Once again quality is better than quantity.

  21. The lost coast

    Backpacking the Lost Coast

    $0.00

    A few years ago, in mid-August, four friends and I set off down the beach from the mouth of the Mattole River. This short hike into the Northern California coastal wilderness offers plenty of stunning scenery, wildlife watching, and no crowds. Renown for its deep sand, disappearing trails, steep climbs, and isolation, the Lost Coast would not seem a likely choice for a lazy weekend. If you pack light, though, and bring some good hearty food, and don't hike too far, the Lost Coast makes a great trip, even for first time backpackers.

  25. 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.
