Grilling Around The Globe: A Memorial Day Photo Tribute

May 28th, 2012 at 12:00PM: Where there's smoke, there's barbecue – and there's no better time than Memorial Day to light that grill. This year, instead of the same old, same old post on burgers, food safety and how not to burn the patio down, I thought I'd offer a photo tribute to grilling in all of its glorious permutations around the globe. I confess to taking some liberties, and adding a few methods that don't...

Travel Smarter 2012: Travel tips for health and wellness

Travel Smarter 2012: Travel tips for health and wellness Mar 15th, 2012 at 9:00AM: Films like "Contagion" (which I very much enjoyed, and not just because Gwyneth Paltrow bites it within the first 10 minutes) instill a paranoia in the public consciousness about the hazards of air travel. It's true, however, that most public transportation is the equivalent of a mobile petri dish; one can't deny the inherent germiness lurking within. Subsequently, antibacterial hand gel is my...

Five classic Chilean foods

Five classic Chilean foods Sep 11th, 2011 at 4:00PM: Chilean food doesn't have the glamour and romance of the cuisine of its neighbor, Argentina, nor the complexity and exotic Japanese influences bestowed upon the contemporary dishes of its other neighbor, Peru.

How to choose a reputable adventure travel company or guide Aug 5th, 2011 at 1:30PM: "Adventure travel" is a nebulous term these days.

There are hundreds of adventure travel companies worldwide; not all are created equal. There are key things you should look for when choosing a company or independent guide, whether you're booking a...

Chiloe: Chilean Patagonia's emerald islands offer eco- and agritourism

Chiloe: Chilean Patagonia's emerald islands offer eco- and agritourism Sep 30th, 2010 at 3:00PM: I can't remember who first told me about Chiloe, but I do recall that it was just a few weeks before my first trip to Chilean Patagonia. For a year I'd been planning an itinerary around my personal Holy Grail: rafting the thunderous Futaleufu River. Located across the Chacao Channel from the bustling town of Puerto Montt in northern Patagonia, Chiloe is a 41-island archipelago. The largest of...

California's Santa Cruz Island: sea kayaking and...sushi?

California's Santa Cruz Island: sea kayaking and...sushi? Sep 15th, 2010 at 3:00PM: My dinner lay spread out beneath me in every direction, plainly visible in the crystalline waters. The rocky inlets and kelp forests of Central California's eight Channel Islands are home to what is considered to be some of the finest uni, or sea urchin, in the world. To better see them in their natural habitat, I was sea kayaking off Santa Cruz Island, 25 miles offshore of the Santa Barbara...
