As I found myself traveling a great deal for work throughout the summer and fall, I also found myself daydreaming of a vacation where I was not on the move and could simply be. Be with my boyfriend. Be on the beach. And be in a luxurious location within easy travel distance from the United […]
Northern England, North Country, and the North are geographical nicknames for England’s upper half, a world away from the country’s more-visited south or, shall we say, London. Mention Manchester, and most seem to know it as an industrial city, myself included—that is until I thumbed through “Where to Go: Manchester,” a not-so-ordinary guidebook that hooked me […]
Living in Sausalito for many years only intensifies the anticipation of rounding the last curve on Bridgeway when, magically, the postcard view of the bay with Angel Island, Alcatraz, and the Bay Bridge comes into focus. An ever-changing panorama includes a variety of water craft: ferry boats, sail boats, James Bond-type yachts, a Darth Vader black […]
We were up before the sun. Monica, our cheerful guide from Avventure Bellissime Tours, greeted us in the lobby of our hotel near Piazza Navona. It was 7 a.m.—dark and early, but not too early for two double espressos to go. After one stop to pick up three additional passengers, we were on our way. […]

I’ve been on the road for more than nine months. Long-term travel and vagabonding is like living life on fast forward. Without the routines and familiarities, you’re constantly being challenged, stimulated, and tested. Lessons that would usually take months (or years) to learn seem to take days or even hours to set in. It’s the […]
For whatever reason, in whatever way, we’ve caught the travel bug—and we’re not looking to get rid of it anytime soon. Read on to see what, why, and who inspired people around the world to keep on planning that next adventure.
Does traveling make you depressed? Recently some friends of mine and I were talking about how we get a feeling of depression when we return home from a trip. The “post travel blues,” so to speak, when we wish we were still out and about experiencing new places, tasting new foods, and making new friends. […]
