Indio, CA, USA
As you journey the I-10 from Los Angeles to Phoenix (the entire 6 hour drive), you come across the eerie image of windmills that stretch for miles and miles through the open desert.

Manawatu-Wanganui 4691, New Zealand
In good conditions, the Tongariro Crossing can take anywhere from about 5 hours if you’re really hoofing it, to 8 hours if you meander and stop to breathe on the tricky ascents and descents. Budget more time if you want to summit additional peaks...

Place Charles de Gaulle, 75008 Paris, France
Located at the western end of the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe was inspired by Rome's Arch of Titus and commissioned by Napoleon in 1806. It was inaugurated in 1836 by King Louis-Philippe, who dedicated it to the armies of the revolution...

Antalya Havaalanı Dış Hatlar Terminali 1, 07230 Muratpaşa/Antalya, Turkey
Antalya is the place to go for Mediterranean swimming, decadent food, endless cocktails, and beautiful Russian women on display in the dance clubs.
Save Place
Any tour of the pyramids outside of Cairo should include the Pyramid of Djoser. It was newly opened when I visited in 2009 and worth the extra stop. Built in the 27th century BC, this huge structure predates others and shows a different type of...

Routeburn Track, New Zealand
Although the Routeburn Track is a three-day trek, one can walk part of it as a 7-kilometer day hike. The Divide trailhead at one end of the track begins with a steady climb through a beech forest and sub-alpine shrubs and continues with a steep...

Witness the destruction wrought by Mt. Vesuvius nearly 2,000 year ago at the archaeological site of Pompeii. The ancient village was frozen in time beneath a blanket of hot ash during an eruption in 79 C.E. Among the ruins that have been uncovered...

Save Place
Las Cuevas, Trinidad and Tobago
If you find yourself in Trinidad, wander past the very popular Maracas Bay beach to Las Cuevas. It's more picturesque and quieter too!
Save Place
Giza, Al Omraneyah, Giza Governorate, Egypt
After a brief price negotiation between our local expat friend and two 10-year-old boys, we went for our first (and so far, only) camel ride across the dusty flat that separates the Great Pyramids from the sprawl of Giza.
Save Place
Reims, France
If you find yourself making the 1 1/2 hour journey from Paris to Reims, you may be on your way to tour the authentic champagne vineyards of France. This city has much more to offer than just bubbly, though. A lovely little downtown is home to...
Save Place
Albaicín, Granada, Spain
The Albaycin was the old Arab district in Granada's beautiful and tangled past. It lays below the Alhambra palace (where this photo was taken). The streets of the Albaycin having survived all the history of this city lay like a small meandering...
Save Place
Cusco, Peru
The route to Machu Picchu has gotten smoother, thanks to two hotels outside Cuzco. Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel and Wellness resort is built on a 17th century hacienda and has one of Peru’s largest spas. Treatments feature coca leaves and camu...

1509 E Madison St, Seattle, WA 98122, USA
The delicious smells wafting from this hole-in-the-wall will woo anyone within a two-block radius. Little Uncle is a tiny shack on Madison Ave. that serves up fantastic Thai "street food" dishes. The menu is tiny (there's always a rotating daily...

Jumeirah Beach - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Jumeirah Beach in Dubai, UAE is usually very popular with expats and travelers wanting to soak up the nearly year-round sunny skies. One weekday, I was sitting alone on the beach along the shores of Dubai, just contemplating life while everyone...
