A literary tour of Italy’s libraries

Italy’s libraries, many of which were once reserved for the elite, see the confluence of grand architecture, scholarly influence and deep historical significance. To travelers they offer a microcosm of Italy’s charms, and to readers, a setting of intense beauty and meaning.  Here, two books that use the library as a backdrop, and one that chronicles the rise and fall of the Medici...
A National Arboretum plot reclaims its turf as an avant-garden

A National Arboretum plot reclaims its turf as an avant-garden

Time is the fourth dimension of gardening, and sets landscape design apart from other art forms.  In a new garden, the plants go in young and reach an optimum state of scale and ornament after a few short years. Even with expert care, the original design cannot remain static.   When a garden gets old and neglected, its lines are blurred by its disorder. This entropy takes many forms...

Grab your stretchy pants for the Michelin Star-Spangled Road Trip across America

If your flavor of road-trip food leans more toward grilled foie gras wontons than Panda Express chow mein, then start packing your suit jacket and stretchy pants. Verve Search, a content marketing company in London, has mapped out a celestial culinary adventure: the shortest possible route to all 159 Michelin-starred restaurants in the United States.

Eau Claire is one of Wisconsin’s most underrated getaways

Eau Claire is the best city in Wisconsin you haven’t been to.  Maybe you have, if you went to college there or had a friend who did. Or maybe you’re a native who’s already in on the secret of the Chippewa Valley.   But if you’re like me and overlooked the small city in west-central Wisconsin, you’re missing out on a great destination for a getaway. ...
The hidden treasures in Italian libraries

The hidden treasures in Italian libraries

In the madness of late spring at San Marco Square in Venice, amid the hordes pouring in from land and sea, hard by the hissing espresso machines and sizzling panini presses of overpriced cafes, I found the still point of the turning world.  I found it in the library.   It was 10 in the morning and I was standing, alone and enthralled, on the second floor balcony of the Biblioteca Nazionale...
In Lima, a Peruvian-Japanese hybrid does fusion right

In Lima, a Peruvian-Japanese hybrid does fusion right

Is Dondoh a Peruvian robatayaki (Japanese barbecue restaurant) or a Japanese parrilla (Latin steakhouse)? Does it matter when the food is this good?  With Nikkei restaurants — specialists in the melding of Peruvian and Japanese ingredients and techniques over the past century — becoming an increasingly integral piece of Lima’s culinary scene, a Japanese-style meat restaurant...

Tracking Twain by the marks he left

Tracking Twain by the marks he left

Who flies to Reno on a spring evening, rents a car and heads into the mountains with no skis, no mountain bike and a backpack full of books? Me. Why? Because in 1861 a 25-year-old Missouri riverboat pilot named Sam Clemens boarded a stagecoach bound for the same territory. He was going to dodge the Civil War for a few months, work for the government, do some writing, maybe dig for silver. Instead...

Karaoke coast to coast

Karaoke coast to coast

I was in a friend’s small, bright, WNYC-soundtracked Brooklyn apartment when I first heard about Santa’s in Nashville. They serve only beer because things got too crazy when they served liquor, this friend told me. Yes, it is Santa-themed, and you can still smoke inside. And there is karaoke every night.  My plan was to drive solo from Brooklyn to Los Angeles — where I hoped...

Hi-yo silver: Hitting the road in an Airstream

For more than 80 years the Airstream trailer company has been a fixation for American road warriors entranced by its sleek, bullet-shaped aluminum body and the promise of camping in luxury, nowadays known as glamping. The shiny trailers, built in Ohio, cast a strange spell. Smitten by some combination of nostalgia and wanderlust, a cross-generational section of Americans — from the still ambulatory...

Boynton becoming a brewery and now barbecue destination

For a couple years now Boynton Beach has unofficially been the city of breweries. It all started with Due South Brewing.

At airports, making travel easier for autistic passengers

For Gearoid Mannion and his wife, Michelle, who live in County Clare, Ireland, air travel with their two autistic sons, Conor, 9, and Darragh, 7, is usually nothing short of a nightmare. The noise level, crowds and announcements at airports overwhelm the boys, and waiting in security and boarding lines is a concept that they don’t understand, Gearoid Mannion said. “They get red in the...
Credit card tips for stress-less summer vacation

Credit card tips for stress-less summer vacation

Going on a summer vacation is supposed to be a stress reducer. But the average American family is likely to spend $2,936 on vacation this summer — including taking on roughly $600 in extra debt, according to a MagnifyMoney survey.  Plenty of us will pull out the credit cards and the excuses to tell ourselves that we’re worth it. But there are some savvy ways to avoid a budget buster...
Route 66: Traveling the Mother Road

Route 66: Traveling the Mother Road

The plan was to have no plan. To head east on Route 66, a solo traveler with no agenda. Stopping when I felt like it. Staying as long as I wanted. Moving on when I was ready. There was only one problem: I’m a master planner. Traveling with me has always been the vacation equivalent of a military assault. I promised myself that this time would be different. No to-do lists. No reservations. I...
How much are frequent flyer miles really worth?

How much are frequent flyer miles really worth?

Merriam-Webster defines a mile as a unit of measurement equal to 5,280 feet. But in the increasingly byzantine world of frequent flyer mileage reward programs, the term has little or no connection to physical distance. In 2015, United and Delta joined Southwest, Jet Blue and other airlines that award miles based upon ticket price and class, rather than distance traveled. American Airlines followed...

All that spare change you forget at TSA checkpoints adds up to big bucks

WASHINGTON - All the nickels, dimes and quarters travelers leave behind at airport security checkpoints adds up to big bucks - enough that next time you forget your change after emptying your pockets, you might want to go back for it.  In fiscal year 2016, travelers left behind a record $867,812.39, according to a report from the Transportation Security Administration. That's over $100,000 more...

Ready to go it alone? Tips for easing into solo travel.

Since 2012, Kristin Addis has been traveling the world. More often than not, she's solo.  The former investment banker decided to sell her belongings five years ago and hit the road.

Traveling alone isn't for everyone - but for these adventurers, it's the way to go

On a May vacation in Nicaragua, Alison Peters often visited several panaderias after dinner, sampling not one but many desserts. She spent days wearing the same bathing suit coverup. And near the town of Granada, she lingered at Masaya, snapping selfie after selfie with the active volcano.  During her two-week journey abroad, she never once had to defend her decisions or discuss her choices....

Travel dilemmas: Preparation is your passport to 2017

We're hoping it's not like 2007 because that was the year that passport applications were like the rat through the boa constrictor: a huge bulge that took a long time to pass.  We turn to that year for the explanation — and what it portends for this summer.   The 9/11 commission and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 called for more secure borders; better...

How solo travelers can beat the high cost of going it alone

It's no secret that many cruise lines, tour operators, all-inclusive resorts and even hotels charge considerably lower prices to those who travel in twos. And even if a single traveler is willing to take a chance and bunk with a stranger, most travel companies don't offer any help in finding a partner.  But the scene is changing as more travel companies try to tap into the growing single-traveler...

Alberta keeps Ukrainian culture alive at heritage village

ARDROSSAN, Alberta — The one-room house — zemlianka — is built into the side of a hill. Other walls are of logs and sod. It is a simple house. A woman is just outside, dressed for the old country and tending to something.

417 National Park Service sites in one really long road trip? One man is doing it

Mikah Meyer was set to travel through Boise recently, one-third of the way through his three-year odyssey to visit every National Park Service site in the country.  He was 30 years old when he started 13 months ago — an age he figured was perfect to do something so ambitious.   “It was my last moment where society would excuse me for doing something crazy,” Meyer said...

4-hour lines at Disney's new 'Avatar'-themed attraction. Is Pandora worth it?

When Walt Disney World's restless brain trust gets nearly half a billion dollars, 12 acres and a popular action-movie premise to play with, I know what to expect: the blitz of ingenuity, the visual bacchanal, the mercantile barrage. Check, check and check.  What I didn't expect was serenity.   And darned if that isn't how those sneaky imagineers found a completely unforeseen way to...

PALM BEACH, Fla. — During the third race on a recent sweltering Sunday at the Palm Beach Kennel Club, a sleek black greyhound named Atascocita Laden broke from the pack early in the 545-yard course and sprinted to a decisive victory.

American Airlines is still shrinking legroom on its new planes - just not as much

American Airlines has reversed course on a plan to cram passengers in tighter on a new fleet of aircraft, the company said Tuesday.  Sort of.   Instead of cutting two inches of legroom, the airline says it will now take away only one inch - and use a new seat design that it swears will make it feel like there's more room down there.   The move comes after public outcry over...

In Barcelona with 11,000 friends

The gathering of a select group of fashion lawyers from around the world that I organize every year was about to begin, this time on a pleasant, sun-washed afternoon in Barcelona, the coastal capital of Catalonia, in eastern Spain. We had the usual frets about whether to cover the goodie bags with a table cloth until given away (we didn’t) and where to place the podium no one ever uses. This...

Those 2 roads diverging in a yellow wood might be in England

DYMOCK, England (AP) — The woods were cool, a welcome balm on a hot day. Shafts of sunlight poured through the canopy. Slowly, I walked down a track thick with long-fallen leaves.  And then I found it.   It wasn't much to look at, just a spot where the path split. But that was the point. Could this be the fork that inspired one of America's favorite poems, the one beginning, "...

Here’s why travelers are calling Nashville the new Austin

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — “Nashville is the new Austin.” It was a comment I heard numerous times during the recent weekend I spent in Music City. After about the third time, I asked the person saying it why he thought so … was it the thriving music scene (not exactly a new addition) or the burgeoning restaurant scene (somewhat of a new addition)? Perhaps it was the influx of young...

Monument review includes oceans, tribal lands and Sequoias

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — President Donald Trump's call to review 27 national monuments established by three former presidents put in limbo protections on large swaths of land home to ancient cliff dwellings, towering sequoia trees, deep canyons and ocean habitats where seals, whales and sea turtles roam.  Trump and other critics say presidents have lost sight of the original purpose of the...

Can lower-priced travel items offer a greater luxury experience?

We all want the most bang for our vacation buck, regardless of whether that buck is spent on accommodations, clothing, food or other expenses. While there are times when the greatest bang comes from purchasing a more expensive or luxury brand item that will go the distance, this isn't always the case. Sometimes, in fact, a more satisfactory experience can be obtained by selecting the less expensive...

It starts with a flicker of light. Two, three, four flashes follow. Minutes later, dozens of tiny yellow bulbs illuminate the forest like paparazzi hounding the Keebler elves. And then the woods go black. Show's over - at least for the next eight to 10 seconds.  For two or three weeks in late May and early June, Great Smoky Mountains National Park pulsates with light and darkness, the beginning...

DHS chief hints laptop ban may not be extended right now

WASHINGTON (AP) — It may not be necessary to expand a ban on laptops and other large electronics in the cabins of many international flights into the United States right now, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Tuesday.  Kelly didn't rule out an expansion from 10 current airports, mostly in the Middle East and Africa, to all nonstop flights from Europe to the U.S., but he said he...

In Nantucket vs. Martha’s Vineyard, both islands are winners

They’re a natural extension of life if you grew up in Boston or wherever Red Sox caps are ubiquitous and if Cape Cod is too bourgeois. Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. The very names, for many of us from other places, conjure thoughts of lobsters and clams and harpooners and presidential getaways and weathered houses facing the salty sea and solitary walks on beaches and — at least...

Beyond the ‘Ya, you betcha,’ Fargo offers big surprises

Yes, the terrain was as flat as a sheet of paper, and about as colorful. Yes, it was cold, with nothing to get in the way of that biting wind. And yes, the people were friendly in a small-town, wide-eyed way (including the server at the HoDo who repeatedly called me “Dear,” despite being about 30 years my junior, and the server at Zest, who wondered — when I asked for a glass with...
