Television and the movies have suddenly discovered the world of fantasy, but with a rather macabre twist.  Nothing is as it seems in the world of make believe and dangers lurk behind every bush. It is a very dark take on what should be fun for young and old. One of the great destinations that [...]

For many years we resisted the impulse to take part in pre-programmed group tours to the foreign destinations we visited.  It seemed too reminiscent of the 1969 Movie: “If it’s Tuesday it must be Belgium.” The comedy focused on a group of travelers participating in a harried European tour as part of a mass movement [...]

By Gerry Barker Cruise vacations come in all sizes, from the “mega” ships like Oasis of the Seas to the yachts of Windstar. If you are looking for something in between, with the amenities of a larger ship but the personal attention you get on a smaller one, Azamara Club Cruises is just what you’re [...]

Traveling is fantastic.  You can get aboard an airliner knowing that when it touches down, you’ll be some place far from home and perhaps with a far different language and culture.  But what do you do to pass the long hours from takeoff to landing?  If you are smart, you will be reading.

Without doubt Italy is one of the greatest travel destinations in the world. For religious pilgrims is is the heartland of Catholicism; for history buffs the ancient Roman empire comes to life; students find time spent here an exemplary education.

Mention Utah to anyone and thoughts immediately go to the great Mormon religion and Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival. But there is more…oh so much more. Flying out of JFK via Delta Airlines was a no-brainer.  It was an opportunity to test-fly our new Delta Skymiles/American Express Gold Card.  The lure of 40,000 bonus miles [...]

Nothing has disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle for quite some time now.  Planes have flown through safely; ships have cruised the tranquil waters and everyone has returned home safely. Whether you believe the stories of space aliens kidnapping those who transverse the huge area bounded by Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, the fact remains that [...]

Hanging in until the last minute to make a purchase may be a great idea when shopping for Christmas presents, but is not necessarily the best idea when planning a vacation, especially a cruise. With the advent of new ships on line and a wide variety of itineraries, cruising has become, arguably, the favorite method [...]
