Trains, Missions and Canoes: A Unique National Park Foundation Adventure in Texas

In recent years I’ve had the great opportunity to explore more of America’s Best Idea, the National Parks.

Visit the ancient city of Butrint

Until it was described in the worst possible light in the 2008 Liam Neeson movie Taken, Albania was little known outside of the Balkans. Travelers had certainly not been crowding the place since the brutal Communist dictatorship of Enver Hoxha that started in 1941 had firmly sealed the nation’s borders. It was only in 1991 that the country deemed the most isolated in the world at the time got rid of communism, held its first democratic election, and started to slowly open up to the rest of th...

Maybe you’ve heard of NaNoWriMo. It’s National Novel Writing Month. The idea is to use November to write like a mofo. You buckle down and really get those words on the page, just hurl them out, and maybe, just maybe, by the time you’re done, you’ve got the bones of a novel — or whatever your form you’d like your book to take. I did NaNoWriMo one year and came out with a solid 26,000 words about my dog. I didn’t know I had that much to say about Harley, he’s only 12 pounds, how could he generate ...
