Places I'd like to visit!
Save Place
Bradleys Head Rd, Mosman NSW 2088, Australia
Travelers should visit Taronga Zoo as much for its harbor views as for the 4,000 resident animals (who see them all day long). Ferry 15 minutes from Circular Quay and take an optional Sky Safari cable car, included in the ticket...
Save Place
Balkans
There is always a bit of mystery and intrigue behind each bend of the road. In the middle of a very cold winter, I embarked on a humanitarian trip to the Satu Mare region of Romania. Cut off from their Hungarian heritage many small, outlying...
Save Place
Strada Luica 164-168, București, Romania
In Bucharest, Romania, I visited a craft fair in a local city park. There were many colorful items for sale, but these painted eggs really caught my eye. While it may not be wise to have all your eggs in one basket, this display of eggs and their...
Save Place
These two pedestrian alleys are roofed with tinted glass and wrought iron. They are lined with shops, cafes, and restaurants in a 'U' shape. The sun gives a natural light to the alley when it hits the tinted rooftop.
Save Place
Chimpanzee Island, Uganda
Ngamba Island Sanctuary in Uganda is one of the only places in the world where you can have an up close experience with almost-wild chimpanzees. I’ve taken an hour-long boat ride from Entebbe to the island, for the opportunity to walk and play...
Save Place
Circuit de la palmeraie, Douar Abiad, Marrakech 40000, Morocco
No trip to Marrakesh is complete without a camel ride, right? We took a short taxi ride from the medina to La Palmeraie, a palm grove about 20 minutes from the city center. Off the main road of La Palmeraie were guides here and there, waiting with...
Save Place
South Africa
A three-day safari in Kruger National Park is a must for anyone visiting South Africa. Entering the gates is like Jurassic Park and you feel transported back in time to the creation of Earth where the wild animals, especially the elephants, are...
Save Place
Velleron, France
Early summer in Provence--cicadas in the trees and lines of lavender stretching to the horizon under a Van Gogh sky...Clichéd it might be, but the setting is heady...
Save Place
Wilfried-Ries-Str. 22, 65195 Wiesbaden, Germany
This lovely animal park is actually tucked right into the forest and the caging/fences are minimal (aside from the bears), so it feels like actually being out in nature with these animals rather than in an unnatural zoo setting. The animals seem...
Save Place
Budapest, Olof Palme stny. 5, 1146 Hungary
During my recent visit to Hungary, it was unavoidable to not walk through the City Park or Varosliget, which not only filled with museums, thermal baths, restaurants, bars and entertainment, but also holds the largest artificial ice surface in...
Save Place
Dioklecijanova ul. 1, 21000, Split, Croatia
The focal point of Split, this 1,700-year-old Roman palace is nestled on the Adriatic seafront and protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. Roman Emperor Diocletian built the palace as his seaside retirement home, and across the centuries...
Save Place
Palace Square, 2, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia, 190000
Affectionately called the "Venice of the North" by some of its citizens, this vantage point hints at why. St. Petersburg is a city full of canals. Look for the Japanese Embassy just due east of the Hermitage and you'll find this place.
Save Place
Brisk winds whipped the chill factor to 11 degrees and below as shifting ice, spastic snowstorms and remote conditions readjusted itineraries daily on the Antarctica expedition. But no one seemed to mind when Mother Nature took the helm. Every...
Save Place
Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
We enjoyed a 3-day safari in Masai Mara. We saw many beautiful animals including lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and many more. The Kichwa Tembo camp provided great food, service, and wonderful privacy.
Save Place
Piazza Castello, 20121 Milano MI, Italy
The Sforza name is well known even to those of us not intimately familiar with Italian history. Originally built in the 15th century, this massive citadel was at one time one of the largest in Europe and even today you can just imagine the...
Save Place
Japan, 〒381-0401 長野県下高井郡山ノ内町平穏6845
I left tropical Southeast Asia for Japan in the dead of winter for one reason - to see snow monkeys. I'd always seen pictures like the one above, of zen macaques in steaming hot springs surrounded by snow, and had no idea how accessible they were...
Save Place
Waringin Barat, Tlk. Pulai, Kabupaten Kotawaringin Barat, Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia
This orangutan mother and her infant greeted us on our walk through the forest to a feeding station at Camp Leakey. The feeding station is about a 20 minute stroll from the main buildings at Camp Leakey, which was established by Dr. Birute Mary...
Save Place
Cambridge Rd, Martinborough 5711, New Zealand
We discovered this tiny, relatively unknown winery in Martinborough and with one taste it became our favorite. Not only is the Dovetail blend spectacular, but when we decided to stay for a while and drink a bottle, the vineyard's owner Lance...
Save Place
Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
I had been skeptical of the Venetian gondola ride, thinking it too touristy and overpriced. Last summer, however, I discovered what is so special about this Venetian tradition. A gondola ride provides a unique view of Venice from the quiet...
Save Place
Tungurahua, Ecuador
The little city of Banos is situated on the side of volcano Tungurahua and has gorgeous waterfalls like this one, the Pailon del Diablo or Devil's Cauldron. To get up this high the trail first drops about 1000 feet into the valley and then climbs...
Save Place
Playa Sun Bay, Vieques 00765, Puerto Rico
We were lying in the sand in Vieques. We'd been told to watch out for horses, but nothing could prepare me for this. What a majestic experience to see wild horses free on the sands of Sun Bay Beach.
Save Place
Estr. de Trancoso, 192, Porto Seguro - BA, 45810-000, Brazil
The beaches of Bahia, just under the village of Trancoso. Awesome.
Save Place
Kasane, Botswana
There is a sliver of Africa where four countries almost converge: Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana. The Chobe River is one of the many separation points between Botswana and Namibia and it’s also where I experienced one of my favorite...
Save Place
Látrabjarg, Iceland
Látrabjarg is home to millions of puffins, but you must have a good day for taking photos and most importantly must be available during the evening. During the day they are on the ocean looking for fish. Our time there was very rainy and extremely...
Save Place
Dekar, Botswana
Calling all overlanders! Traveling through Ghanzi, Botswana? Just a little ways out of town lies the village of D'kar. A tiny spot on the map that houses an incredible museum and cultural center about the history of the San People and the Naro...
Save Place
1330 Eastaugh Way Suite 2, Juneau, AK 99801, USA
When you live in Alaska, you can at times take things for granted. As a result, you might not get out and do as much as you would if you were just visiting. Same is true of a lot of places - for example, it's amazing how many people living in New...
Save Place
7 Promenade Robert Laffont, 13002 Marseille, France
Marseille, one of the oldest cities in France and has been Designated as European Capital culture. This amazing building is "The MuCem" ,the first major national museum dedicated to Mediterranean civilizations.Accessible to everybody and with a...

Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina
Finca de Las Lechuzas specializes in horseback winery tours through the scenic vineyards of Agrelo in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. You can choose a morning, afternoon, or evening ride with a gaucho guide. The tours take you through the stunning...
Save Place
Ndr Dragørvej 55, 2791 Dragør, Denmark
Traditional farmsteads in Denmark consisted of a square (or open square) of linked buildings around a central courtyard. One building was the family home, one or more was used for storage, and one or more housed the animals. Like other traditional...
