It's Always a Day at the Beach At Japan's Ocean Dome

Think you’re in Dubai, not this time. You’ve entered a land that only can be called “so Japanese.” Who else, outside of the United Arab Emirates,  could create the world’s largest indoor beach, complete with surf and even a man-made volcano that erupts in fake flames. Why the Japanese, of course. Travel a mere 1200 miles south of Tokyo, on the island of Kyushu, and you’ll hit it. Yes in Miyazaki, Japan there lies an amazingly beautiful beach, where you can…

Americans, Visiting Cuba Is Easier Than You Think

The visit by Pope Benedict XVI to Cuba, and the worldwide headlines that accompany a Papal visit, may encourage more of us to add Cuba to our "bucket list" of must visit destinations, if it's not already there.

A Trip to the Future in Masdar, Abu Dhabi

When I was young, I remember commenting aloud that in the future cars should be something people ride in, not drive. A person would just hop in, say where you want to go, then sit back and read a newspaper. People laughed at me.
