It's Astonishing What You Can Learn from Books – Especially About Intriguing Aspects of WW2

The Few book cover
Do you know what you're going to do next week or indeed next month? Yes, I know that sounds like a funny question, but hear me out. Many journalists, especially those writing about travel with a regular column every week (or in my case every month for Traveling Boy) every now and then wonder, "what shall I write about for my next column?"

Eyes Wide Open in Fairbanks: A Trip to Alaska’s Mighty Interior

aurora borealis lights up the night sky near Fairbanks
I had just put my head on the hotel room pillow. The day had been a fun – but it was also long and taxing – and a good night’s sleep was in order. Suddenly, the riveting sound of something as bad as bulldozer challenged my senses. I looked at my hotel clock – it was 1 AM. I bolted out of bed, charged to the hotel window and pulled open the curtain. Across the river, there was a man operating, well, a bulldozer.

In Search of Heroes: Britain

Robin Hood statue
All countries have their heroes – romantic figures from bygone days who lived and often died with such spirit and style that, centuries later, they still form the fabric of stories whispered at bedtime to starry-eyed children. Some heroes are easy to find: The names of Joan of Arc and Nathan Hale, for example, span the world. Then there are others – persons who parade through a past so amorphous it could take a lifetime to locate concrete evidence of their achievements.

Her sensitive work as Alicia Nash in Ron Howard's "A Beautiful Mind," in which she co-starred with Russell Crowe, won her an Academy Award, as well as Golden Globe and BAFTA awards.

The Nira Caledonia: A Warm Edinburgh Welcome on a Stormy Night

the Nira Caledonia Hotel

I don't think I was ever so happy to check into a hotel than I was one stormy, blustery night nigh unto a year ago, when I landed – finally, after having left my home in New York nearly 30 hours earlier – at the warm and embracing Nira Caledonia Hotel in Edinburgh. I had touched down in London at a wee early-morning hour that day, but when I arrived at the Nira Caledonia, I felt as if that arrival had been an eternity ago.

Deutsch-Südwestafrik

giraffe in Etosha National Park
So we descended from the skies, fresh from the dark cultural landscape of Zimbabwe, and already we had a problem. I had been entrusted with one task for our multi-country trip to Africa… renting a 4x4 for our leg of the journey into Namibia. Much procrastination had brought all to nought, as we arrived in our new, unfamiliar, and brutal land without the aforementioned task being executed. Worse yet, designated as the driver for this portion of the trip, I had misplaced my license back in the States...

In Search of Kirsch, Stout, Wine and Whisky

Glenora Distillery, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
For many, kirsch is simply a sharp-tasting liqueur that recipes require in a pot of fondue. For the Swiss it is their national drink. For me it an excuse to tour the Dettling Kirschwelt distillery. To be honest, just the hour-long boat ride from the city of Lucerne to the idyllic village of Brunnen on Lake Lucerne would have been worth it. But the location of Dettling Kirschwelt was not chosen for its setting on the lake; rather for its proximity to native black mountain cherries.

The Impossible Happened: It’s Time to Get to Work

the White House

All of us are stunned, across the entire political spectrum, by the results of this election. Many are both sickened and saddened, while others are jubilant. I am guardedly optimistic. I think it's too early to despair, or to celebrate. In my experience nothing is ever as bad as it seems, or as good. But there is great cause for concern.

Flying in Luxury Aboard SWISS International Airline's New Boeing 777-300er

waterfront near Hotel Maya, Long Beach

Sometimes getting there is half the fun. And then sometimes it can be its own separate getaway, full of adventure, luxury and relaxation. Such was the case on my recent flight to Switzerland aboard Swiss International (SWISS) Airline's new Boeing 777-300er jet. My journey began at Los Angeles International airport, where I checked into SWISS Business Class at a separate, "no waiting" desk for Business passengers, and made my way through TSA security.

Pan Am's Flight To Nowhere Recreates the Golden Age of Travel

Pan Am hostesses

Have you ever longed for the good old days when luxury travel was, well, luxury travel? Back in the day, there were no security lines or body scanners and whoever accompanied you to the airport, could actually sit with you at the gate until you were ready to embark. When you walked onto a Pam Am plane, you were greeted with lovely, smiling hostesses who were not being distracted by cell phones and most cordially escorted you to your seat.

Ride With John Aboard Europe's Most Dazzling and Luxurious Train

Venice Simplon Orient Express train
Kings and Queens have relished its opulence; international entertainment stars have been pampered by its luxury; books have been written about it; big budget Hollywood movies have detailed its storied past. It is the world renowned Orient Express, which began service in 1883. When the service was discontinued in 1977, there was one enterprising entrepreneur who was determined that this magic, luxury, and opulence, could still be offered to those who desired only the finest in unique travel.

Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater: Wildlife Encounters Unlike Anywhere Else in the World

black rhinoceros
As little as five years ago, some Americans still thought of Tanzania as an exotic destination; now more and more are choosing it as a vacation alternative to Kenya. And when most people think Tanzania, they think Serengeti. They picture millions of wildebeest and zebras stretching endlessly across the plains in their annual migration.

Stuttgart: Home of Automobles and Piglets

19th century building, Stuttgart, Germany
Stuttgart, birthplace of the automobile, is a city of contrasts, a combination of the old and new. It’s an industrial city with a rich cultural heritage. Badly bombed during World War II, the city still has some of its old buildings intact, or restored, and while it has neither the graceful charm of Munich nor the vibrant energy of Berlin, it is nevertheless a city of verdant hills, parks and a wealth of tourist attractions.

Mission Rwanda

Dr. Lee treating a Rwandan boy

On a warm July afternoon in 2013 following a 32-hour flight, Thomas Lee, a prominent Southern California dentist, and his wife Lita, first set foot in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, a landlocked country in central-east Africa with a populace in great need. The couple were beginning a passionate, heartfelt mission along with the Lees' 17-year-old son Nathan, five medical doctors, a nurse, pharmacist, four support staff, and the Lee's pastor and his wife.

Number One Holiday Film – The Shop Around the Corner

For many, It’s a Wonderful Life is a worthy choice for a holiday film, but the staff of Traveling Boy’s pick is Ernst Lubitsch’s heartfelt, romantic comedy, The Shop Around the Corner.

Starring James Stewart, Margaret Sullivan and an array of Lubitsch regulars, this holiday classic is also among Traveling Boy’s all-time greatest films. The story line is simple: Two employees at a gift shop can barely stand each other, without realizing that they are falling in love through the post as each other's anonymous pen pal. Treat yourself this holiday season with a taste of the Lubitsch touch.

Deb's poetry break

Christmas Bells
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
And made forlorn
The households born
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said;
For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men.”

Traveling Boy Recipe Travel recipe of the month

Feijoada Completa

Thanksgiving turkey

Feijoada Completa is the undisputed national dish of Brazil. It is a bean stew with rice and pork meat. Different ingredients are used in different parts of Brazil, but usually include “farofa” (mandioca, a root from the rainforest), mixed with maize flour and oil.

The origin of the feijoada runs back to the sixteenth century with the introduction of African slaves in Brazil. Others argue that the black bean stew is instead a Brazilian variation of European fare like the French "cassoulet"and the Portuguese "caldeirada."
