3 Boulevard Edgar Quinet, 75014 Paris, France

334 Furman St, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA
On our last trip to New York City, we ventured over to Brooklyn by subway, but decided to enjoy the unseasonably warm December day and walk back to Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge. It was the first time we had walked the bridge and the sight of...

Île Saint-Louis, 75004 Paris, France

Outremont, Montreal, QC, Canada
In Montreal in late May 2012, hundreds of pot-banging protesters filled the street protesting Bill 78 - which ironically limits protests. At first it felt like a celebration, but after speaking with the locals I learned about the recent government...

Nutty bread layered with olive oil, jam, salt and cured pig's neck were the perfect accompaniment to rich Portuguese wine and 80 year old port. When visiting wine bars let the staff select your wines ask for the stories behind them. You'll feel...

Puno, Peru
During a trip to Peru's Lake Titicaca, my husband and I debated whether to visit the Uros Floating Islands - we'd received mixed reviews from travelers who had already visited the islands. We decided to give it a shot and hired a private boat to...

Agritourism has become a big business in Tuscany from cooking schools to farm rentals. Alessandra Federici (far right) took a non-traditional route to building her agritourism business. She opened a cooking school in her own home. This deeply...
