Three Easy Trips from Copenhagen
Three very different gems, all within an hour’s drive north of Copenhagen, reward travelers: an impressive, contemporary art museum; the bucolic home of one of Denmark’s most well-known writers and a 150-room, Renaissance castle, among the nation’s most beautiful.
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.
Tips for RCI’s Oasis of the Seas
Considering cruising aboard the world’s largest ship, Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas? Then, follow these tips to navigate your ideal vacation. The vessel’s sheer size adds never before possibilities for fun at sea, but the volume of people also creates some challenges.
Titanic Museum Attraction, Pigeon Forge, TN
The Titanic Museum Attraction, Pigeon Forge, TN, is a find. Shaped like the front half of the fated ship, the building looms over the parkway, forever foundering on its faux iceberg. “Tacky,” we assume, but we’re wrong. The museum delivers a tasteful retelling of the tragic story.
Top Resorts: Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Grand Velas Riviera Maya Resort is for those who like all-inclusive resorts and, especially for those who don’t. Situated on 200 acres in the Riviera Maya not far from Playa del Carmen, Grand Velas is a rarity: an all-inclusive property that’s earned AAA’s highest rating of Five Diamonds.
For big ticket vacations that require hefty deposits months in advance, especially those involving international travel, don’t leave home without travel insurance. Because you just never know. Not convinced? Then just say two words: “Icelandic volcano.”
Traveler’s Medical Emergency Kit
Going on an adventure? Then don’t leave home without a well-stocked emergency medical kit. If you have food allergies and don’t speak the local language, take along food translation cards that indicate what you cannot eat.
Traveling with Friends Without Becoming Enemies
It’s great to travel with friends—that is unless your shared vacation turns you into enemies. That can happen to even the most complementary of couples. We know. We tarnished a good friendship by not talking frankly ahead of time.
Tucson, AZ, Adventures
In Tucson experience the desert, learn about Native American culture and enjoy special museums that are gifts to the eye.
Tulum and Xel-Há, Riviera Maya, Mexico
From atop the cliffside Castillo (castle)in Tulum, the crashing waves and the calls of the sea birds conjure visions of this once-vital Maya sea port. Combine a cultural visit here with river tubing and swimming with dolphins at Xel-Ha,a nearby eco-adventure park.
