Know Your Passenger Rights!

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I had no idea I could be compensated for a delay. I thought delays were just part and parcel of taking the plane,  domestic and international. Apparently we have rights as travelers, something worth considering when sitting for an overnight delay or last-minute cancellation. You could get a food voucher! I would be interested to know for […]

Finding The Real Hawaii One Bite At A Time

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Quickly, name the first thing that comes to your mind when I say, “Hawaiian food.” I thought so, probably pineapples, roast pig luau — all those stereotypical Hawaiian things, right? I don’t blame you. I’m definitely not a resorter, and won’t be any time soon, but those touristy eats are the same things that pop […]

Is The Train The Best Way To Travel?

Thursday, February 4, 2010

I have always thought of the train as the most romantic way to travel. Maybe it´s because you can sit back and relax, doze off without swerving into traffic. Maybe it´s because you get to see other paths other than the pavement. I don´t know what it is, but I love taking trains. When I read […]

The World’s Ultimate Hike . . . Down

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Most hikers brag about how far up they’ve gone, but what about treks going down into the earth?  For what has to be one of the world’s ultimate hikes, try heading to the Grand Canyon, where you can descend one mile down past eons worth of rock layers, as is described in this NY Times […]

Where The Wild Horses Are

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Some come for the peaceful beaches, others for the pristine landscapes, but what most people remember most from visiting Assateague are the wild horses — sitting right next to you on the beach. By Elaine Casarella It was ironic that I was visiting Assateague Island National Seashore and Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge when Ken Burns’ […]

The Great American BBQ

Friday, October 30, 2009

What do you get when you cross 500,000 pounds of meat, surgical gloves, and some “testosterone-fueled bro hugs?” The world’s largest, American Royal BBQ competition in Kansas City. Duh. BBQ in the states isn’t just slapping some meat on a grill; “real” BBQ is an art, complete with a history of its own. This Guardian […]

Take Your Very Own New York “Mad Men” Tour

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

There are plenty of movie and TV related tours you can take in New York City, such as the infamous “Sex and the City” tour and the “Sopranos” tour. (Any chance of a forthcoming “Bored to Death” tour? Unlikely, but good show.) But how about a tour in the footsteps of Don Draper? Presenting the self-guided “Mad […]

Why Boulder Rules In The Summer

Friday, June 26, 2009

When I lived in Boulder, Colorado, with eight of my friends, people would be surprised when they encountered the homeless guy that often called our porch home. I could’t understand their confusion. Welcome to Boulder, I used to tell them. If you’ve only spent time in Colorado during the winter then you’re really missing out. […]

A trek into the Great Plains to hunt nature’s most elusive predator By Jenna Blum OH, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL EVENING it is in the Oklahoma Panhandle, five miles west of Guymon. The sunset blazes orange, cattle graze on yucca flowers, prairie grasses wave serenely toward the horizon. At least, on one side of Highway 412. […]
