Pachamanca Cooking in Peru

Pachamanca is more than just a cooking method; it is a spiritual

offerring. Pachamanca comes from the Incan traditions of the Andean

region of Peru. The word comes from the Quencha language, meaning

earth (pacha) and pot (manca).

and vegetables are placed into this hole dug into the earth. Hot

stones are then placed on top of the food. The hole is covered up and

sealed completeley for… Continue

The Road Less Traveled By: Travel North Wales (with Video)

Trying to pronounce the impossible Welsh names like Llangollen (klhan-gghlan) or Betws-Y-Coed or Llandrillo (klhan-dri-lo) is part of the fun and challenge of traveling in North Wales

Ritz-Carlton's New Cabanas Push Fort Lauderdale Luxe To A New Level (Literally)

A couple of nights ago I got to join a group for a little soirée like quite a few I've attended in some of the glammer circles of South Beach. The venue was a line of ten sleek white cabanas facing the ocean, stocked with bubbly, shrimp and crab legs, decadent desserts, and lots of Ketel One. A DJ spun global lounge sounds, and between sips, noshes, and gazes out at the busy beach and the ships in the distance we all happily dished about the latest doings in South Florida and… Continue

India's Chand Boeri

One little known contribution to architecture made by India are called

stepwells. These architectural wonders are built deep into the

ground. With fluctuating rain in the desert communities of Rajasthan

and Gujarat, these were built as far back as 600 A.D. to conserve the

water for the community. The construction of these stepwells are

unique to other wells and tanks in that you have direct access to the

water, without having to send a bucket or other vessel down… Continue

Tree of Life Pomegranate Wine

Summer always inspires me to pack a picnic basket which actually turns out to be a big heavy ugly cooler and either head to a wide open meadow under a towering shade tree or to the breezy salt kissed beach. Barefootin’ it with your shorts and tank top, you want something as fun and fancy free as the flip flops you just carelessly kicked off.

Instead of the Pinot, why not try packing…

A Few Words About Madagascar

Sometimes it's good to be cautious--and other times it's better to go with your gut.

People told us not to visit Madagascar, that political conflict made the country unsafe for tourists.

But we decided to go anyway because if we had listened to those voices, we'd never have gone to Nairobi, Kampala, or Kigali.

We are cautious when we travel, but aware that our best and most eye-opening experiences are places well off the beaten path.

And,… Continue
