Living in Japan, I learned that the country is an intriguing place that’s full of rich contrasts.

Ancient buildings coexist alongside emerging technologies. There’s delicious traditional cuisine and more modern, adventurous snacks. You can explore rural lands where things are done as they always have been, and cities that are rife with change, urban sophistication, and a passion for kawaii (cute).

With all the contrasts of this complex culture...

Indochina– the geographical area of Southeast Asia that’s bordered by India to the west and China to the north– offers a melting pot of indigenous cultures.

Comprised of Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Singapore, this area was deeply influenced by its neighbors, as well as by French colonizers. However, the name of the region didn’t originate until the early 1800s.

Once settled into our rooms the excitement of what was ahead began to break through the fatigue of long-distance travel. A welcome drink and a shared dinner was our first encounter with fellow...

Those who do choose to tour Egypt will be rewarded far beyond their expectations....

China is home to some of the oldest cultures in the world, and its rich history is a deep well from which to draw.

Chinese farmers have been growing grains and domesticating animals for over 7,000 years now. Artisans have been making distinctive pottery, baskets, and woven hemp cloth for nearly as long. The wheel was actually invented in China, as were paper, gunpowder, compasses, and alcohol. The umbrella. Silk. Cultivated tea. Porcelain. Bronze. The kite. The list goes on…

Panama City, Panama

 

Early in the evening we gathered outside on the top floor of the Le Meridian Hotel in downtown Panama City to meet and mingle with our fellow travelers over cocktails and dinner. We had flown in from places all over the world for this Canal to Cuba adventure. A warm tropical breeze blew steadily.
