10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington for Families

10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington Are you someone who loves winter & all of the activities in the snow? Spring & summer are definitely my favorite seasons in the Northwest, but I love to try out all the fun snow sports every winter with my family.

Travel: No ship of fools for these cruise performers

Garry Carson has heard it thousands of times from cruise passengers before showtime: “I don’t like magic, but let’s see if the guy is any good.” Some entertainers would have bruised egos overhearing such comments, especially on a crowded elevator ride to the deck of the theater. But after 500-plus cruises over 22 years, the seafaring magician knows the life of taking an act on the road where there are no roads. “These people aren’t there because they love or even like magic,” said Carson, pointi...

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, Ananth Kumar was, at best, one of the builders of BJP in Karnataka; a power broker like Pramod Mahajan

Ananth Kumar (left) with L.K. Advani and ‘Vishwa Vani’ editor-in-chief Vishveshwar Bhat, who served as his office on special duty. (courtesy: Vishveshwar Bhat) Union minister and Bangalore South MP Ananth Kumar’s premature demise at the age of 59 will hog the news headlines, at least in Karnataka, for the next few hours.

Deepavali vs Diwali: A short, stupidly chauvinistic rant (in four graphs) on the mind gap between the South and the North

“North vs South” is an evergreen story in Indian journalism. And maha fun too. Newspapers, magazines, and pop-columnists have for decades banked on the all-too-real differences between the people, food, movies, music, habits, efficiency between the two geographical halves of India to rescue them out of many a deadline crisis. End of akhand story. Yesterday was Deepavali below the Vindhyas, which, of course, has been shortened to Diwali above it so that it is easier on the tongues of the langua...

Should You Add “Unsafe” Destinations to Your RTW Trip?

Fear is individually unique. One person’s definition of a safe destination can equal another’s worst nightmare. However, regardless of whether you sport a high fear factor or quiver at the sight of your own shadow (I idle somewhere in between), there are certain destinations around the globe that sit at the upper end of the spectrum of dangerous.   The reasons that turn a spot into a danger zone are wide ranging, from war, to natural disasters, to terrorism, to violent civil unrest.   Whether yo...

Flying (a Biofuel-Free) Virgin Atlantic 787-9 in Upper Class

After covering Virgin Atlantic’s flight powered by recaptured carbon biofuel, Geoff Fischer had to get back home to Seattle.  He was lucky enough to be flown home in Upper Class (aka Business Class), and here’s his report. Disclosure: Virgin Atlantic paid for Geoff’s travel. Having flown British Airways a number of times, I was looking forward to this return flight to finally try the competition and see if Virgin Atlantic lives up to its hype.

7 parasites to avoid while traveling

Seasoned travelers know to get their travel vaccines up to date before departure and are aware that certain medications need to make it into their first-aid kits for a safe and healthy trip. But there might be one thing missing from their standard healthcare checklist: parasite protection. If you don’t take the time to research what parasites are festering in the local area you are traveling to, you might be setting yourself up for a traveler’s most unwanted souvenir. So, to make sure your tr...

The Fleeting Beauty of Fall

It literally happens overnight. I first noticed it on my favourite pathway, the one I’ve been enjoying all summer long. It takes me through the woods and for ten or fifteen minutes, I’m surrounded by critters, which is a hell of a lot better than walking on Merivale Road and being around traffic. One morning, two weeks ago, I was greeted by a lone squirrel on a naked branch who seemed to be wondering where to hide. I could spot bird nests and woodpecker holes carved into trunks. Wait… wasn’t tha...

Pantanal is the best for wildlife

While the Amazon gets all the press, the true wild heart of South America lies in the Pantanal. Stretching over 81,000 square miles and spanning Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay, it is the biggest tropical wetland in the world. Unlike the Amazon, where the wildlife is concealed behind the dense rainforest vegetation, the Pantanal lays out its wild treasure on the open savannah that’s filled with a network of interconnected rivers, streams, and ponds. In Brazil, the vast wetland spreads over two ...

Why you should visit Chattanooga

It’s not every day you get to hold a million-dollar guitar. Much less play one. Of course, I don’t actually play guitar, so the experience was a little wasted. But standing in a back vault at Chattanooga’s Songbirds Guitars museum, holding a piece of Rock and Roll history, I was really wishing I did. “That’s the third electric guitar Gibson ever made,” Johnny Smith, the executive director of the most impressive guitar museum ever created tells me. “Go ahead, you want a picture?” Usually in a ...

Fun & Interesting Things to Do in Mobile, Alabama

Mobile is the 4th destination we have visited in Alabama so far, and the more we explore this state the more we enjoy it’s history, culture and people. After spending time in Huntsville for a conference, exploring Montgomery and relaxing at the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach we were excited to see what the city of Mobile had to offer. I’ve always liked port cities, and interestingly back in the 1800s Mobile was known as the Paris of the South when Mobile was the 10th wealthiest city in the United...

Understanding Peace and Honor on a Gettysburg Battlefield Tour

There’s a strange air of peace in famous battlefields I have visited around the world. It’s almost as if, from the blood, agony, and sacrifice, the spirit has risen and said “Enough. Only peace can live here anymore in testament to what occurred here and a reminder that love is the only way forward. “ The blood that seeped into the earth from both sides of the battle fertilizes the ground and makes way for new flowers to bloom. Mother Earth earth says, “no more, only beauty can live here inste...
