The Islands in My Life: Four Island Destinations

Laguna Beach
For many of us, traditional images come to mind at the mention of an exotic island destination: swaying palm trees, crystal clear waters and pristine golden sands. A place where time stands still and all troubles seem to be caressed away by gently blowing tropical trade winds. I recently asked my brother, James, to name his favorite exotic island destination. Without a second’s hesitation he replied, “Iceland, definitely.”

A 'Bridge Too Far' Connects Countries, History!

the John Frost Bridge at Arnhem
Does the recent "Brexit" vote in Great Britain impact any aspect of future European travel articles I write for Traveling Boy? Possibly, and I'll tell you why in a moment. Unless you've been living in an Igloo in Antarctica, most people know that on June 23rd, 2016 Great Britain decided to leave the EU – the European Union – and forge their own future separate from the original 28 member Union.

Nice, France: Before the Massacre – A Time for Celebration

fishermen on the Rio Yanacuyo

The recent shock and awe from a broken mind had me recalling when I joined celebrants watching fireworks from Nice’s Promenade des Anglais. It’s a sadness now to envision the tragedy of Bastille Day, the vulnerability of those looking skyward. But those who know the city, and who have felt the joy of crowds on the promenade can also recall the city’s irrepressible spirit.

Islands of Croatia: Sanctuaries of Beauty, Grace and Rejuvenation

Brendan and Alison Parsons seated in the Birr Castle entrance hall

My family and friends are quite accustomed to me flying off somewhere on a press trip. However, when I mentioned that I was invited to Croatia, the reaction was quite universal: "I hear that it's a beautiful country." They also assumed I would be covering the capital city of Zagreb and as well as Dubrovnik.

A Pageant of Painting Partners and an Ocean-Front Paradise

Heisler Park, Laguna Beach

I knew I was in for another fantastic time when I returned to Laguna Beach last week for the annual Pageant of the Masters and Festival of Arts, and to stay at historic Hotel Laguna. The Pageant never disappoints and the hotel has become one of my favorite ocean-front gems. This year's performance is filled with provocative and passionate tales of some of art’s dynamic duos – artists and patrons, models, muses...

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...

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.

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.

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.

First-Ever Philistine Cemetery Discovered in Israel

Archeologists revealed groundbreaking news with the discovery of a 3,000-year-old Philistine cemetery in Ashkelon.

Until now, only a handful of Philistine burial sights have been identified, providing minimal information of this civilization beyond the Biblical accounts of Delilah and Goliath. The site contains the remains of more than 200 people, offering new evidence for researchers. "After decades of studying what Philistines left behind, we have finally come face-to-face with the people themselves," explains Daniel M. Master, one of the leaders of the excavation.

Deb's poetry break

John Muir on Mt. Ritter
by Gary Snyder

After scanning its face again and again,
I began to scale it, picking my holds
With intense caution. About half-way
To the top, I was suddenly brought to
A dead stop, with arms outspread
Clinging close to the face of the rock
Unable to move hand or foot
Either up or down. My doom
Appeared fixed. I MUST fall.
There would be a moment of
Bewilderment, and then,
A lifeless rumble down the cliff
To the glacier below.
My mind seemed to fill with a
Stifling smoke. This terrible eclipse
Lasted only a moment, when life blazed
Forth again with preternatural clearness.
I seemed suddenly to become possessed
Of a new sense. My trembling muscles
Became firm again, every rift and flaw in
The rock was seen as through a microscope,
My limbs moved with a positiveness and precision
With which I seemed to have
Nothing at all to do.

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.

From the High Arctic to the beaches of Santa Monica, these destinations are places worth visiting this summer.


United and Delta Trim UK Flights for Winter

Delta Air Lines announced last week that they plan to reduce winter capacity to the United Kingdom from Washington Dulles and Newark. United will achieve the reductions both by reducing the number of flights and by using smaller planes. The trimming at both airlines followed the Brexit vote last month for Britain to leave the European Union, which hurt that country’s currency and reduced the demand for foreign travel. Delta and United executives each said summer trans-Atlantic travel remains strong, but that winter would suffer.

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.
