Basques Build the Replica 16th Century Whale Ship SAN JUAN

replica of the Basque ship San Juan under construction

I was in San Sebastian, Spain, in May to help celebrate its being named the 2016 European Capital of Culture. I ate, very very well, as San Sebastian's restaurants have the highest concentration of Michelin stars in the world, drank the excellent local wine, visited many museums and enjoyed walking the charming old city. But I have to admit that the strangest thing was to travel to the Basque region of Spain to learn the truth about North America's early exploration...

Ghost Tours in St. Augustine: A Fanciful Foray into Phantom Fantasy – or Fright

writer with a dolphin at Curacao
At 450+ years, St. Augustine, Florida is America's oldest city. There's a lot to recommend a city that old – history, ancient (for the states) architecture, Spanish culture. And, of course, ghosts. A city that old has a lot of history to haunt – a lot of death and despair to permeate the landscape – and the spirits of St. Augustine are sufficient to keep a multitude of ghost tour operators very busy.

Searching for Scotland's Famous Loch Ness Monster!

China's Terra Cotta Warriors
As Squadron Leader Marlwood-Elton, and his co-pilot Pilot officer Slatter, walked across the runway, the cold wind bit into their clothing that was not tightly buttoned up. Dark clouds scudded menacingly overhead as they walked towards their Wellington bomber. She'd already got 14 successful bombing missions over Europe, but now R for Robert was at the RAF airbase at Lossiemouth, Scotland.

Ben Powell Digs Deep

Ben Powell

Ben Powell is anything but your typical bluesman. The native Californian is an ardent vegetarian and at one time aspired to breathe the 'big air' of a professional skateboarder. His world changed during his formative years when the Powell family packed up and moved overseas. Ben was instantly exposed to an international array of diversity and culture that afforded not only an education, but an education with global perspective.

How I Spent My Summer “State-Cation”

Laguna Beach
Each summer the Terry & Jackie Nishimoto family of Sherman Oaks, CA, load up their Volvo station wagon for a week-long vacation to one of California’s most spectacular destinations. Yosemite? The Redwoods or Joshua Tree? Wrong. The Nishimoto’s destination of choice is nestled along the Pacific Ocean, less than a two hour drive south of Los Angeles. Their home for the week is Laguna Beach – The Riviera of California.

Maui's Plantation Romance

Gerardís Restaurant, Lahaina

Gerard's Restaurant, in a classic Maui setting of soft ocean air, the scent of flowers, and the pop of a champagne cork, sets the table perfectly for an evening of pleasure. A gentle sea breeze tousles the hair of a newly-wed couple from Sweden lifting their wine glasses to a recently married couple from Boston, their passion settling across the veranda of the restaurant like a mantle of French fervor.

The Last Place You’d Visit: A Few Days in Europe’s Least Visited Country

Chisinau panorama from the Cosmos Hotel
I’m a biased traveler. Having fallen in love with Europe on my first trip to Italy with my father as a 14 year old, it is to this continent that my travel plans always seem to lead. I return to somewhere in Europe now every May to see old friends and favorite cities. But with each trip, I have a firm goal: to fit in at least one new country every year. With 2016 being my 28th trip to Europe, I’m getting close to the bottom of my list of unvisited countries. And this brings me inevitably to Moldova.

A Return to Paradise: Oahu's Polynesian Cultural Center Revisited

Devil's Hole Pupfish
Hamana Kalili was there to greet me, his right hand extended in the gentle shaka wave of welcome. His statue stands at the entrance of the Polynesian Cultural Center on the North Shore of the Hawaiian island of Oahu. A descendant of Hawaiian ali'i (chiefs), Kalili (1882-1958) lost the middle, index and ring fingers of his right hand in an accident at a sugar mill. He would later wave his right hand with the middle three fingers missing, and is considered the originator of the iconic shaka.

So, would YOU really like to do THIS jigsaw puzzle?

Seaside Luxury and History at Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows

the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows

The Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is kind of like two charming hotels in one. At times it is a modern and classy beach-front resort. And other times it can be an elegant and secluded retreat, sheltered by gardens, a 90-yr-old tower, and a giant 130-yr-old fig tree. I guess it depends on your mood, but however you look at it, the hotel makes a memorable getaway and is one of my Southern California favorites.

Iceland Looks Better in Spring

Gullfoss waterfalls, Iceland
It's a bit of an understate- ment to say that I was excited when Icelandair recently began service out of my home city of Seattle directly to the magical jewel of the North which we know as Iceland. Iceland has a je ne sais quoi that some almost intangible reasons makes it my favorite travel destination in Europe and I’d already delighted in the marvels of the island on four previous occasions.

Amazon Off-Line: Eat this Shrub and Call Me in the Morning

fishermen on the Rio Yanacuyo

A speedboat departs the Iquitos slums, which hover over the water on stilts and rafts to accommodate mercurial high-water marks that vary 15 meters with the Andes snowmelt. Devouring Peru's Amazon for several hours, the boat slows as it enters the tributary Yanayacu that snakes through the jungle like an anaconda.

Crete: Working Off the Farmer’s Tan

Chaniaís old town, Crete
For what seemed like an epoch, the author was scared to take his shirt off in public due to a noticeable farmer’s tan. He developed a paranoid fear that everyone would point at him behind his back. Since he walks quite a bit on the city streets of his hometown in Northern California, often with a short-sleeved shirt in the blazing sun, the farmer’s tan naturally developed.

To lodge all power in one party and keep it there is to insure bad government and the sure and gradual deterioration of the public morals.

5 Things You Need to Know About Traveling to the U.K. Post-Brexit
Courtesy Chris Morris

It's tempting to pop across the Atlantic, but there are a few factors to consider. As investors and political leaders struggle to determine the impact of the U.K.’s decision to withdraw from the European Union, some U.S. travelers are weighing a change to their summer travel plans. The British pound has plunged against the dollar, making it more tempting to pop across the Atlantic.

The Night I Almost Peed on Henry Kissinger

Tapped for the Order of the Traveling Boitanos, Skip Kaltenheuser also writes to scratch the occasional political itch. Following the White House’s Distinguished Public Service Award to Henry Kissinger, Skip thought the rest of us could do no less. Here’s his remembrance of the great man, a sort of premature appreciation, which appears in Ozy. Think of it as time travel:

Henry the K is back. Not hanging with Jill St. John, but holding hands with Hillary. A mentor. My guilt by association resurfaces, decades after I hung out with him. It’s 1980 and here I am at F. Scott’s, a hip, upper-crust bar in Georgetown with an art deco motif. Looks like Reagan will win the White House. Winds of change are coming...

Costolette di Vittelo Milanese:
Veal Chops Milan-Style

Costolette di Vittelo Milanese

My grandmother originally hailed from the hills in the province of Genova. As an Italian-American family living in Seattle, Sunday dinners at her house were blessed with a bounty of homemade regional dishes such as pesto, ravioli, focaccia, stuffed zucchini, and so much more. My step-grandfather was born in the region of Lombardia. To please him (and us), she often times would serve local dishes from his region that would include risotto, Osso Buco, and, above all, Costolette di Vittelo Milanese.
