Will Rogers Highway


America’s “Mother Road,” stretching from Chicago to Los Angeles, was the first of its kind in many respects. For starters, it was the first diagonal highway covering a long stretch of land in the 1920s. But more importantly, it was a pioneer in connecting small, rural towns in Illinois, Missouri and Kansas with larger, urban regions, which helped farmers ship their goods to the big cities. When it was officially commissioned in 1926, Route 66 included 2,448 miles of road. And even though only 800 of those miles were paved, it still served as the nation’s primary junction between the east and west.

Glamping on San Juan Island


Add this to your bucket list: Gourmet Glamping. If you’re wondering what “glamping” is, think camping but without actually roughing it. Sleep in a comfortable bed in a wood-floored canvas tent and eat really, really good food that you cook over an open fire with a guest chef as your guide. Food truly does taste better when it’s cooked outdoors, especially when paired with exceptional wines and an amazing group of people.

The Ocean Endeavor in Greenland

The Ocean Endeavor in Greenland


By John and Sandra Nowlan


We spotted polar bears on day three: not just one or two but about a dozen of the magnificent snow-white beasts on solo treks along the edge of the treeless tundra.


These sightings came as we sailed far north of the Arctic Circle on a two-week Adventure Canada cruise following the fabled route of the Northwest Passage. It was early September, the ideal time for Arctic cruising, with plenty of sunlight and (usually) lots of open water. Temperatures averaged 5 to 10 degrees above freezing.

Abundance and Abandonment in Ventimiglia

The beautiful city of Ventimiglia is a popular summer destination for tourists  on the French Riviera, but it's also a harsh setting for migrants

The old border city of Ventimiglia is a destination for shoppers on the Italian Riviera, but it’s also a harsh setting for migrants


by André Gayot


Ventimiglia, a dismal Italy-France border little town, rarely makes it to the front page of the newspapers. Still, this Italian destination attracts huge crowds each Friday to its colorful seaside market, crumbling under a mont of charcuterie on top of which reigns the tasty San Daniele ham, above salamis, cheeses, pastas of all description, fruits, vegetables, garments, hand bags and shoes.
