Save Place
770 N Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89101, USA
It has been known by many names; the Graveyard, the Neon Sign Museum, the Boneyard, the Neon Graveyard, and perhaps many more I'm not even aware of. When I visited what is now consolidated and called, most simply, the Neon Museum, an appointment...
Save Place
Junín 1760, C1113 CABA, Argentina
Sometimes travel is about having faith. I was in Buenos Aires waiting. The month before I had quit my job and bought a ticket to Argentina with frequent flyer miles in hopes to do research for a book I was writing. None of my plans had...

crta. d'Olot a, Olot, 17800 La Pinya, Girona, Spain
We arrived at night, when the glow of christmas lights in the trees outside the front door illuminated a structure that looked far too small to house all of the rooms we would need. Morning brought with it clarification and what we found was a...
Save Place
Carrer de la Marina, 253, 08013 Barcelona, Spain
I've always loved pictures of the exterior of the Sagrad Familia in Barcelona, but finally seeing the inside was spectacular.
Save Place
Gramartstraße 8, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria
The German proverb “Der Weg ist das Ziel“only roughly translates to the English equivalent of “The journey is the reward.” It is however absolutely accurate when it comes to the Hungerburgbahn, a state of the art funicular, which attracts many of...
Save Place

Great use of public space and gardens. Also has some fabulous mosaics and examples of of Gaudi's architecture and urban design

Save Place
4050 Red Rock Loop Rd, Sedona, AZ 86336, USA
The red rocks around Sedona are a trekker's dream, and if you know where to go, you can jump in a creek as well. Just to the southwest of Sedona, check out Red Rocks State Park. Take a short hike then cool off with a swim below Cathedral Rock. (By...
Save Place
What I love about Sonoma County, California is its dramatic contrasts. That one moment you're sipping on wine in a cozy tasting room on the square in Healdsburg Plaza and the next you're hiking around Lake Sonoma with views like this. The overlook...
Save Place
Baillou Hill Rd, Nassau N 7509, The Bahamas
"As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart-broken probably more than once and it’s harder every time. You’ll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when...
Save Place
330 Bonaventure Rd, Thunderbolt, GA 31404, USA
If you're a lover of the South like I am, beautiful Savannah is not to be missed! Savannah offers everything that gives the South is distinct charm: Spanish moss-draped oak trees, beautiful antebellum mansions and historic buildings, delicious...
Save Place
53000 East Historic Columbia River Hwy, Corbett, OR 97019, USA
Go for a quick drive east of Portland, Oregon. Enter the Columbia River Gorge, winding above the southern bank of the river...and you'll be able to walk a short trail to Multnomah Falls—the height of a 60-story building, one of the tallest...
Save Place
216 E Broughton St, Savannah, GA 31401, USA
While on a road trip to Florida I stopped in Savannah to experience the south. While the sun was setting I came across this wonderfully retro theater now run by Savannah College of Art and Design. They play classic films, hold concerts and are...
Save Place

High on the headlands above the Golden Gate - where the Pacific Ocean spills into San Francisco Bay - stands the California Palace of the Legion of Honor.
Save Place
52801 California State Route 1, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
After five hours in the car, I was more than happy to hop out and hike the 1.4 miles out to Pfeiffer Burns State Park and get the prize of a beautiful waterfall. The water's color is an unreal sea blue/green that I have never seen before. The best...
Save Place
91 Brick Ln, London E1 6QR, UK
Another still image from my BLU:AQUA slide series. No, I did NOT stage this...just a proper British flea market moment! Brick Lane Market is a feast for the senses. Sunday mornings. Shoreditch area. E1 http://www.visitbricklane.org/
Save Place
Rue de la Colombe, 75004 Paris, France
My first day in Paris, I was giddy with excitement and lack of sleep. So in the early morning quiet, I stole out of my flat on I'le Saint Louis to explore the empty streets and alleys of I'le de la Cite. With a sense of awe and wonder I meandered...
Save Place
Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Roma RM, Italy

Save Place
Provença, 261-265, 08008 Barcelona, Spain
Before Barcelona I knew very little about the famous architect Gaudi. Yet, before I left I was mad about Gaudi.
Save Place
Calle Casp, 86, 08010 Barcelona, Spain
About a year and a half before I came to Spain, my father died. So, I found myself chasing my father's ghost in Barcelona. He had spent time here before I was born, before he met my mother... I had a week alone in this city, before meeting up with...
Save Place
Pont des Arts, 75006 Paris, France
Across the Seine, the Pont des Arts (built 1804, rebuilt 1984), the Pont-Neuf (1607), and the Pont au Change (1860)...Through the ages, the bridges of Paris have always been places to cross, to rendezvous...
Save Place
Biltmore Estate Dr, North Carolina, USA
The Biltmore estate is truly one of the most impressive buildings in North Carolina, if not the entire South, and as such it's a must-see. You can't help but be gobsmacked by its ambition, its swagger, and at times gauche mismatching of styles...
Save Place
13 Biltmore Ave, Asheville, NC 28801, USA

Felix Meana and Katie Button, veterans of elBulli in Spain, converted Asheville’s former downtown bus depot into a stylish tapas bar. Curate means to cure oneself, which diners can do with traditional Spanish dishes such as Catalan sausage...
