Calle Rubén Darìo, Av. Central Nte., León, Nicaragua
With my rudimentary Spanish, I hadn’t understood why a local suggested wearing long pants to the night’s festival. “Because of the fireworks,” she had said (I thought). The recommendation seemed odd considering the stifling heat and humidity. But...

Pleasant Green Hill, Lexington, KY 40508, USA
To get to many of these places highlighted by AFAR, one needs to fly. I'm never sure whether to take the aisle seat or the window seat, but here is a reminder on why to take the latter
Save Place
84250 Le Thor, France
Summer, mid-afternoon in the South of France--there's no better place to be than in the shade, cicadas singing overhead, taking a nap in a hammock hung from a medieval village-wall by a lazy, quiet river... My wife and I were visiting friends in...

1185 Airport Rd, Sedona, AZ 86336, USA
Escaping the lower elevation heat of a southern Arizona summer, my wife and I headed up to the mile-high red-rock country around Sedona. This was the view from our hotel: red rocks all around... Sky Ranch Lodge is perched on the summit of...

Calle Anchorena s/número Esquina Calle IV s/número, Lunlunta, Provincia de Mendoza, Argentina
Is there anything better than toast? Seriously, these two pieces of bread haunt me. [This is from a really cool guest house, El Aguamiel, in the middle of a small vineyard. Not over-the-top, just smartly designed with stunning views of the Andes -...

Auckland, New Zealand
On a weekend trip around Auckland, our group made an afternoon stop at Lake Wainamu. Dark sand dunes surround a section of lake. For most, walking along these will suffice. For New Zealanders, seeing who can jump the farthest off the dune is the...

Ag. Ioannis Diakoftis 846 00, Greece
It all starts at the sight of a spider, the size of my hand, bolting from my neighbor's door frame across the adjoining wall, and stopping right next to my door. I freeze. The neighbors run inside. My blood is rushing past my ears and the panic...
Save Place
Agios Ioannis, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Panthea Residences was my savor. Initially booking a "private bungalow" at the trashy Paradise Beach Resort, having a run in with a furry spider the width of a 2x4, and having to deal with a man yelling at me as I stop at nothing to cancel my...

Yellowstone National Park, WY 82190, USA
Old Faithful typically erupts every 35 to 120 minutes, and its show usually lasts for one-and-a-half to five minutes. On the day we were there, the 200-degree water reached 160 feet, which is on the higher end of the spectrum. Observers sit on...

Crested Butte, CO 81224, USA
Just because this small mountain town has only one stoplight doesn’t mean it can’t serve up some delicious food. For tasty and fast Mexican food, there’s Teocalli Tamale right on the main drag, Elk Street. For hot and cold drinks...

Kerikeri, New Zealand
On our voyage to the Bay of Islands we split into two boats for some deep sea fishing. A cooler of beer and clear weather set the scene. Our boat won the competition. We yanked out about thirty red snapper from the Pacific waters!!!

Termon, The Warren, Co. Roscommon, Ireland
When we arrived at the passage tombs at Carrowkeel, the skies above Boyle, Ireland were gray and there was a light misting rain. We had the remote hillside to ourselves, and spent a quiet afternoon exploring many of the 14 Neolithic cairns, which...
