215 SE 9th Ave, Portland, OR 97214, USA
I love love love Biwa. I came here twice, that’s how much I loved it. Not even a five minute walk from the Jupiter Hotel, this place has one of the best happy hours I’ve ever had. Not on their website, their happy hour consists of pork, chicken...

2335 NW Thurman St, Portland, OR 97210, USA
Finding fine French bakery goods beyond the borders of France would seem unlikely in this NW corner of the United States. St. Honoré has transformed a little shop in NW Portland into a cultural escapade you'd normally have to get on a plane to...
Save Place
Portland, OR 97231, USA
There's nothing like a day on the river here in the Northwest. For PDXers, we have two easy-access choices for getting out on the water. The Willamette runs through the center of town and is a more urban river experience. For my money, a trip out...

Via del Teatro, 1, 53045 Montepulciano SI, Italy
The Italians raise wine appreciation to an almost sacred pursuit. Ducking into the ancient cellars at Contucci on the square in Montepulciano is a perfect opportunity to expand and explore your wine horizon. The grapes here have been continuously...

Turistično društvo Gorje, Podhom 80, 4247 Zgornje Gorje, Slovenia
There is nothing like the power of water. What it's done along the one mile trail through the Radovna River gorge is an engineering masterpiece. Built on wood scaffolding, the trail winds its way down river, crisscrossing the current in the...

Adiskidetasun Kalea, 2, 48001 Bilbo, Bizkaia, Spain
The Begona is a traveler's delight. Centrally located close to mass transit, restaurants, bars, culture and the sheer beauty of Bilbao. We spent three nights in this clean, cozy pension where the staff were spot on with recommendations and...

1801 NE Broadway St, Portland, OR 97232, USA
This east-side eatery is a breakfast/brunch haunt for me, and it's always busy on the weekends. No problem cleaning plates on Sunday morning after a full complement of Saturday night rambling. The waffles are always top heavy with fresh fruit. The...

Here I am, back at another version of the Renaissance family of hotels, this time in the outlier Emerald City. No flying monkeys bothering me at the bar. No ruby slippers. Just a really well-run establishment with great views and accommodations to...

Abandoibarra Etorb., 2, 48009 Bilbo, Bizkaia, Spain
Modern, mind bending, and mentally interactive, the Guggenheim Museum is one of the must-do experiences of Spain. You could easily spend an hour getting lost in the beauty of the facade, with the monstrous tarantula, the skyscraper of a flowered...

It's sometime after Day 12 on our 21 day private Grand Canyon rafting trip. Only one private permit per day allowed on the river, so this is special. While not my first trip down, I'm already lost in time and space. There really is nothing in the...

Bled Island, 4260 Bled, Slovenia
Marital bliss. Too much to ask? That's the promise for the lucky groom to carry his bride-to-be up the 99 steps to ring the bell and wed in the church at the top of the stairs on Bled Island. I'll be honest, they're kind of steep, so you really...

5911 SW Hwy 101, Lincoln City, OR 97367, USA
I'm conflicted with my priority for highly recommending this coastal stop on Hwy 101. Could it be the freshness and quality of the food. Maybe that's where the party begins. There's the understated commitment by the sommelier, too. Wine occupying...

1438 NE Alberta St, Portland, OR 97211, USA
Empty glasses join cleaned plates at this NE Portland brunch bar. I'm always happy to wait in the rain to find a seat in the enclosed, heated patio dining space. They peel off all the plastic and open things up when the weather gets nice, but it's...

Tinghir, Morocco
Tayeb welcomes us into his "maison" with a disarming sense of calm. Walls and benches are covered in carpets in dizzying patterns and colors. "First," he says, "it is our tradition to share some Moroccan whiskey." I'll party with the best of them,...

Preah Vihear Province, Cambodia
Spend more time in Cambodia. Making a three day tour to Preah Vihear from Siem Reap qualifies nicely. This World Heritage site has been contested between Thailand and Cambodia for a millennia. Fighting still breaks out making things edgy. We...

10a The-Lane, Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
School's out! The red dirt neighborhood road is clogged with kids and bikes. They're happy and animated and hopefully paying attention to our van perilously plying their throngs. Weaving past potholes, dogs, chickens and tuk tuks, we're on our way...
