Tea on the Sea – Part 1

Those who know me know my wanderlust as well as my affinity for tea. Some also know I love a good story. While on a recent Caribbean cruise (not a tea tour this time), I began to suffer from a prolonged period without some good tea. Oh, there were teabags. Lipton obviously had the contract for this cruise ship, and no aspersions cast on their products. But I left that world behind a long time ago.  It had been seven long, lonely days at sea (actually only three) since I’d had some “norma...

The best attraction for kids in Punta Cana

Punta Cana has stood out over the last years as one of the most visited places in the world. Its idyllic location in the Caribbean sea bless this Dominican Republic area with crystal clear waters and white sand beaches that look like they were brought straight out of a dream.

How do hotel star ratings work

In case you missed it, there’s a seven-star resort coming to an Austrian treetop near you. No word on if it’s being inspected by the Lil’ Rascals to make sure it has adequate clubhouse space and “No Girls Allowed” signage since to literally everyone in the world’s knowledge no official rating system exists for tree houses. But it makes one wonder: If a treehouse can claim it has seven stars, can any old hotel do it too? The Burj-al-Arab in Dubai famously claimed it was the world’s first and o...

Coral reefs: Centuries of human impact

In her AAAS talk, ASU researcher Katie Cramer outlines the evidence of the long-ago human footprints that set the stage for the recent coral reef die-offs we are witnessing today. Her studies have examined the origins of Caribbean coral reef declines by tracking changes over the past 3,000 years in the composition of a variety of fossils found in reef sediment cores she collected from Panama, including coral skeletons, fish teeth, urchin spines, mollusk shells, and others.

Where to eat in Aruba

Over 1.6 million Americans each year chose Aruba as their winter hideaway of choice. This dynamic island packs a powerful punch in a small package — 75 square miles to be exact.

Aruba sits a mere 15 miles off the coast of Venezuela, meaning on clear days you can catch a glimpse of the neighboring country ...
