Mancation - A Man's Vacation in Maine

Landing in Portland, Maine, I quickly stopped wondering if this would be another shopping and stuff-your-face vacation. I was happy to note boats, sloughs, masts, traps, seafood signs, varnished wooden spars, and sea smells…back in my personal natural element on the Maine coast. …

Wine Trippin’ In Rockland, Maine

I am always on the lookout for unique up-and-coming wine regions that present an interesting story and a 2-7 day destination of food, wine, and fun. For heaven sakes, there must be a wine-life beyond Napa and Sonoma, and the Champagne region of France. Been there done that. So begins my search for fun, funky, deserving-of-press wine regions through the Wine Trippin’ series. First stop – the mid-coast wineries near Rockland, Maine.

Rockland can be a challenge to get to, but that…

A New friend with two hostels in the Andes, Last Minute Galapagos cruises, and more information than your average guidebook!

"Notions of chance and fate are the preoccupation of men engaged in rash undertakings" --Cormac Mccarthy

They had just come from Columbia after working the season in Colorado as bartenders. They met the third in thier…

Strawberry Rhubarb Wine at Massachusetts' Russell Orchards

Fruit Wine Selection at Russell Orchards

If you’re headed up Argilla Road north of downtown Ispwich, you’ll get the distinct feeling that you’re heading into more remote surroundings of rolling farm fields, and wooded glens. One pastoral gem that you simply can’t miss is Russell Orchards. Only about 5 minutes from Crane Beach, you’ll see a wood shaked barn to your right and once inside, it’s apparent that this is the real deal…not some knock off built within the…

In Orlando, Wizarding World of Harry Potter Mobbed by Muggles

I’m what you might call a pretty casual Harry Potter fan. I read the first book and saw most (not sure if all) of the seven movies with varying degrees of pleasure. But visiting “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,” the long-awaited theme-park-within-a-theme-park at Universal’s Islands of Adventure after its official opening this past Friday in Orlando, Florida, I found myself awash in a sweaty sea of Potterphiles — many presumably so devoted to J.K. Rowling’s creation that they’ve… Continue

And when you're not drinking whisky, what else can you do in Valais?

Once again it may appear that all M. and I do is consume large amounts of alcohol when we go away for the weekend. So besides visiting Swhisky, what else can you do in the region of Ardon and where can you stay to get to it all?

PLACE TO STAY:

La Petite Cigale

This Bed ‘n’ Breakfast has earned every one of its four stars. Rarely have I stayed somewhere where the owners have paid such close attention to…
