Tasting Missouri Wines

Well…I am impressed.  America’s first wine country not only boasts some solid wines, but also has its very own state grape glass – the Riedal Crystal Norton Wine Glass. Hardly anyone gets that, let alone a small wine district in the middle of the country.   I had a chance to taste some great wines in that glass and spend a few days in Lake of…

El Palacio sobre Ruedas- Más Scenic Train Journey de la India

De todos los trenes de lujo en la India, el Palacio sobre Ruedas es probablemente el más conocido, y junto con el Orient Express es considerado uno de los diez mejores trenes de lujo en el mundo. Sin embargo, el palacio en las ruedas es algo más que un vehículo de lujo, sino que es como dar un paso atrás en el tiempo a los días pasados ​​de la Maharajah, con el estilo y servicio que es digno de un rey. Sin embargo, un lujoso interior no es el único que pone el tren palacio en tres…

Kansas City Jazz Still a Hot Ticket

by Diana Lambdin Meyer

Jazz in the Blue Room at the Jazz Museum, Kansas City Jazz in Kansas City is not like jazz in New Orleans or in any other great American music city. It’s a little more bluesy, a little heavier on the keyboards and bass, not so bold with the brass. They call it “cool jazz” here, jazz that’s a little gentler on the spirit.

In…

Wines of Idaho's Snake River Valley

#SipIdaho.

Move over potatoes, grapes are coming.  Idaho’s state slogan was “famous potatoes”, it has evolved to “great potatoes, tasty destinations”; undoubtedly, at least in part, due to the wonderful wines being produced along the Snake River Valley.  With a climate akin to the Columbia Valley in Washington State, and elevations similar to Spain’s Rioja region, Idaho produces primarily Bordeaux and Spanish varietals, with a…

Climbing Up Sugar Loaf Via a Steel Cable...Just Another Way to Get to the Top

 

If you want to tell people you have seen Rio de Janeiro, there are a few “not to miss” attractions and one of them is the Pão de Açucar (Sugar Loaf). Most people go to the summit of Sugar Loaf the normal way: by cable trolley. Few people know that there are alternative, more adventurous ways to get there. One of them is a walk to the top (referred to as “costão”), a three hour walk which involves a little rock climbing, but nothing…

How Study Abroad Changed My Life

They call it growing up for a reason, of course. And when you add “safe” first-hand exposure to the wide world beyond your own country's borders - as a (relatively) independent young person, still curious, full of energy, and trying to figure it all out, yet at the same time supported and protected by parents (from afar) and teachers (nearer at hand) - all this inevitably has a powerful effect on your personality, and in many cases your future course in life. Everyone's story is…
