This year, I saw the Northern Lights in Iceland, dancing across the dark night sky in fluorescent shades of green. I experienced a different kind of light show standing in the middle of Times Square in New York, on a long-time-coming trip to a city I once I thought I'd live in, but still hadn't visited years later.
I’ve spent the holiday season in three countries and all over the United States, so Christmas has meant coats, flip-flops, and everything in between. But despite many changes in scenery and climate over the years, a few traditions prevail.
From colorful rows of evergreen trees to dazzling icicle forests, the holiday vibes are strong in Huntsville, AL. This is a Southern destination that doesn’t often get painted in wintry white, so fostering a festive atmosphere is especially important.
The holiday season here in the United States evokes images of turkeys, pies, family gatherings and crazy shopping deals. But most importantly, it provides a time to think about what we are blessed with. ... I wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on everything I have to be thankful for because of travel.
“Iceberg ahead!” I might have said this one too many times as we zipped around the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon on a Saturday morning in early October, but something about the cold air striking against my face
I could easily share 100 dreamy waterfalls, maybe 1,000. It’s true, Iceland is a waterfall chaser’s dream. Driving the Ring Road (that’s the main highway that loops the island), you just have to glance inland every few seconds
When you think of a Hawaii vacation, do you immediately see dollar signs? Since it's the northernmost of the major islands (and therefore more remote), Kauai, in particular, can empty wallets pretty quickly. Just like anywhere else, though, exercising control over what you spend makes a huge difference.
