Valletta, Malta

Welcome to Malta! And what a welcome; the beautiful hard, blue skies and sun-warmed streets of the honey-colored limestone for which the island was named, encouraged some early arriving guests to bask away our travel kinks over a cappuccino in a sidewalk café, while more energetic souls explored the ramparts, monuments, and shops of Valletta. While some of us could not resist probing a few layers of this...

Kyoto, Japan
After a long day of travel and a quick night’s sleep, we began our first full day in Japan with the delicious breakfast of Kyoto’s Hotel Okura, which suitably blended East and West. From hash browns and French toast to smoked mackerel and creamed burdock root, there was something for every taste and degree of immersion into Japan. Thus fortified, we boarded our buses and set out to explore the cultural...

Mahe Island, Seychelles

All fellow travelers arrived safely after seemingly convoluted journeys into the tropical Seychelles, the humidity like a gentle kiss after the dry conditions endured on aircraft. We were met at the airport and transferred to our accommodation at the Eden Bleu Hotel, located on reclaimed land offshore of the main island. Some of us joined one of the excursions on offer, while others simply...

Sights, Sounds, and Flavors of The Iberian Penninsula

The Iberian Peninsula includes Spain and Portugal, two of the most dynamic countries in Europe. There, centuries of conquests, migrations, and trade have created a cultural diversity like few other places on the continent.

Sicily Coastline
April 19, 2018
Blog Post

Sicily really has everything. You could easily spend months exploring Italy’s largest island, hiking its mountains and volcanoes, exploring beaches and smaller outlying islands. But there would still be plenty left to discover in the layers of history and culture that make Sicily what it is today– a diverse, culturally-rich destination.

Because of Sicily’s position on the edge of the Italian map, only few tourists ever make it this far. Those who do usually only visit...
