Paradise (and Culture) Found at the Ka'anapali Beach Resort

Ka'anapali Beach
Children frolic in the surf and sand. Parents and grandparents stretch out on lounge chairs around the pool, basking in the gentle Ka'anapali sun. I don't think I've ever seen so many multi-generational families in one place. I explore Sheraton Resort's pool that leads to a long circular canal, complete with cascading waterfalls, bridges and tropical vegetation that gracefully caresses the top of the pool's lava-enhanced walls.

Country Roads: Bologna, Gone in 60 Minutes

"Our Man in Italy" is on the clock and under the gun as he races through triple-headed Bologna, biting, gulping and shooting along the way in this, his 17th Country Roads dispatch. Tick…tick…tick.

Post Cards from Maine While Driving "Down East"

the York Old Gaol, Maine
Travel writers tend to be opinionated ... so may we mention our thoughts on Maine? Our favorite villages in that state are the two Kennebunks and we think the prettiest fishing village in the Pine Tree State is Camden – and the most interesting city to visit by far is Portland. Maine (although we do concede Portland, Oregon gives it a run for its money).

Nathan James: Southern California Roots Run Delta Deep

Nathan James and the Rhythm Scratchers
When you first meet Nathan James, you wouldn't think he was anything more than a fun-loving, skateboarding, guitar-playing Southern California boy who loves the outdoors and hanging with his friends. James was born and raised in the secluded California village of Fallbrook, nestled among the avocado groves in North San Diego County.

Electric, Eclectic Fun and Food
In Long Beach

guests on the Black Canyon Raft Tour
Long Beach is known for its world-class Aquarium of the Pacific and the legendary Queen Mary ocean liner. But as I recently learned, the water-front city is also an eclectic paradise, full of incredible restaurants, great hotels, and a myriad of awesome activities. My summer getaway to the city began at the luxurious Renaissance Long Beach Hotel, located in the heart of the entertainment district in downtown.

Country Roads: The Redheads of Maranello

Vieques, Puerto Rico: From Travesty to Tourism

a beach in Vieques, Puerto Rico
Picture this: From 1948 to 1999, the U.S. Department of Navy bombed the hell out of its own country. Okay, maybe that's an exaggeration – but here's what happened. From the early 1940's, the U.S. military used a good part of Vieques, Puerto Rico, a small island off the coast, as a training ground for ship-to-shore gunfire, air-to-ground bombing, and Marine amphibious landings. It was not until a Puerto Rican security guard was accidentally killed by an errant bomb in April 1999 that the opposition began in earnest.

A lovely invitation arrived from the folks at Visit Temecula Valley inviting a select group of travel writers to cover their annual Balloon and Wine Festival, along with visits to some of their restaurants and award-winning wineries. In two delightfully packed days, we experienced a cross section of what this tiny gem of a bucolic vacation destination has to offer.

The World in Miniature – So HUGE (And Extraordinary) You'll Not Believe It!

Miniature Wonderland in Hamburg

Do you like exploring countries overseas? When you get there, are you the adventurous type, seeking out unusual, offbeat things to see on your journeys? I wonder if, like me, you are fascinated by finding museums, or special attractions, that feature true-to-life designed toy models of ships, trains and planes – and just about everything in between?

Leaving New York City Harbor
By Skip Kaltenheuser

Cappadocia scene
I've been on boats circling Manhattan which offer fine alternative perspectives on the island. But I was unprepared for the views one gets from a big ship departing the harbor. Last July 4th, my son, a couple of chums in tow, and I enjoyed the pleasure of departing NYC for the Caribbean on the Splendor, one of the behemoth cruise ships in the Carnival line. There were plenty of fun views along the trip, but the views of leaving NYC are the standouts.

Ms. Cohn visually conveys an intriguing look of what this tiny gem of a bucolic vacation destination nestled just north of San Diego in Southern California has to offer.

The Mermaid Parade
By Michael Schlueter

bridge at the Charlottenburg Palace grounds, Berlin
The Mermaid Parade is the largest art parade in the nation. A celebration of ancient mythology and honky-tonk rituals of the seaside, it showcases over 1,500 creative individuals from all over New York City’s five boroughs and beyond, opening the summer with incredible art, entrepreneurial spirit and community pride. The parade highlights Coney Island Pageantry, celebrates the artistic vision of the masses, and ensures that the summer season is a success by bringing hundreds of thousands of people to the amusement area in a single day.

The 25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

remains of the Berlin Wall at Potsdamer Platz
In 1962, a dozen seniors escaped from East Berlin by way of ‘Der Senioren-tunnel,’ the Senior Citizens Tunnel. Led by an 81-year-old man, the group had spent 16 days digging a 160-foot-long and 6-foot-tall tunnel from a chicken coop to the other side of the Wall in West Berlin. The tunnel was tall because the group wanted to walk to freedom with their wives, proudly and unbowed.

A Jogging Tour of Berlin
By Frank Mazer

bridge at the Charlottenburg Palace grounds, Berlin
Jogging between rows of flowers, the blue-white palace behind me, I must remind myself to focus on the task at hand rather than the beauty of the palace gardens. Small groups of tourists are present here and there and a jogger must be aware of circumventing them. There are many paths to choose in these palace gardens in Charlottenburg Palace, Berlin.

Mining for Adventure on the Mighty Colorado River

guests on the Black Canyon Raft Tour
Located a couple miles off the river, in Eldorado Canyon, the Techatticup Mine is the oldest, richest and most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada. It is part of a surreal ghost town that has been restored and preserved by Tony and Bobbie Werly, and today looks like a giant movie set, with original structures from the 1800s, along scores of old vehicles and signs, and a general store/museum building.

Hiking Stryn: The Norwegian Fjord Country
By Frank Mazer

the town of Stryn, Norway
"Glaciers to left of us; glaciers to the right of us," This calls to us like thunder while chasms of several thousand feet separate us from them, but not from our blunder. Here we are. Our goal achieved, we stand next to the stone hut we could see from far below. We stand amidst a scattering of rocks. We stand where there are no streams and no pools of water and no faucet to be found. We, the experienced hikers, stand humbled, and we stand thirsty as we stare at our empty water bottles...

Deb's poetry break

Europe’s Shame
by Günter Grass

Close to chaos, because the market is not just, you’re far away from the country which was your cradle.

What was searched and found with one’s soul, is now considered to be as worthless as scrap metal.

As a debtor put naked on the pillory, a country about which you used to say you were grateful, suffers.

Poverty doomed country whose maintained wealth adorns museums of the loot you kept.

Those [World War II German nazi occupation soldiers] who hit the country, blessed with islands, with the force of arms wore both uniforms and [books of German poet, inspired by ancient Greek poetry] Hölderlin in their knapsacks.

Barely tolerated country whose colonels were once tolerated by you as an alliance partner.

Country which lost its rights, whose belt is tightened and tightened again by the cocksurely powerful.

Antigone defying you wearing black and all over the country, the people whose guest you have been wear mourning clothes.

However, outside the country, the Croesus resembling followers have hoarded all what glitters like gold in your vaults.

Booze at last, drink! [European] Commissioners’ cheerleaders shout. However, Socrates gives you back the [hemlock poison] cup full to the brim.

Curse you as a chorus, which is characteristic of you, will the gods, whose Mount Olympus you want to steal.

You’ll waste away mindlessly without the country, whose mind invented you, Europe.

Send Deb your favorite travel poems.
