Book Review: Life is a Trip
With Life is a Trip Judith Fein has written a different kind of travel guide. Instead of pointing out the top restaurants, hotels or attractions, Fein reminds readers what the best of travel can bring: experiences that transform.
Tucson, AZ, Adventures
In Tucson experience the desert, learn about Native American culture and enjoy special museums that are gifts to the eye.
Three Guatemalan Adventures
There are more Guatemalan adventures than exploring Tikal. Lake Atitlan ranks among the world’s most scenic lakes, Chichicastenango, dubbed “Chichi” for short, offers endless opportunities to shop for native goods, and Antigua shines as one of Central America’s prettiest cities.
Explore Cenotes, Riviera Maya, Mexico
Mexico’s Riviera Maya is known for its hundreds of cenotes, or underground rivers. At Xplor, a $20 million eco-adventure park, raft through a winding cenote, at Rio Secreto walk and swim and at Alux, dine inside one.
How to Choose a Family Ski Resort
Family ski vacations build bonds on and off the slopes. The key to a successful mountain getaway, however, is to pick the resort that’s right for your family. Here’s a guide to what to consider from trails, to child care to ski schools and off-the-slopes activities.
Fall Fun on the Ski Slopes
In fall ski slopes dazzle with gold, rust, and yellow leaves. You can hike, mountain bike and ride the chair lifts for scenic views or simply stroll the cross-country trails through the woods. An added bonus: autumn’s prices are lower than rates in ski season.
Venice, Italy, for Families
Known for romance and revelry, Venice also rates as one of Europe’s best cities for families. The absence of cars coupled with the fairy-tale like setting of pastel palaces reflected in the canal waters make Venice a walker’s delight.
Using Frequent Flyer Tickets
Once in a lifetime trips,often begin with a plane ticket. Because cashing in frequent flyer miles delivers dream destinations almost for free (you pay taxes and award fees), we booked tickets--or tried to- from D.C. to Africa. Here’s what we learned.
Ecuador’s Andes: Markets and Magical Hikes
In Ecuador’s Andes, we met locals, learned about traditions at native markets, hiked snow-capped volcanoes and stayed at centuries-old haciendas. For us the formidable mountains and their scenic valleys exuded a special magic.
Ecuador’s Andes Mountains
we came to explore Ecuador’s Andes. Instead of the Galapagos' frigate birds, tortoises and blue-footed boobies, we discoverd a different, but equally alluring landscape of mountains, towering volcanoes and glassy lakes.
