5 Countries That Are Great Alternatives To Their Crowded Neighbors

5 Countries That Are Great Alternatives To Their Crowded Neighbors Mar 30th, 2013 at 10:00AM: It's the great hypocrisy in the mind of every traveler that they want to tour a place free from other tourists. Grumbling that a place is overcrowded isn't without grounds, though. Who hasn't wanted to pull a Dr. Manhattan on the tour groups that take group photos with every single person's camera? And boy, what we wouldn't give to disappear the backpackers pretending to make out with statues...

Exploring The Marvels Of Croatia's Modric Cave

Exploring The Marvels Of Croatia's Modric Cave Dec 26th, 2012 at 9:00AM: Twist your head to the right, your body to the left and wiggle through the crack, urged the guide leading us through Modric Cave in Croatia. Pretending I was a pretzel worked. After dragging my lagging left leg through a fissure between caverns, I re-lit my carbide miner's lamp and stood stunned by the beauty of crystals sparkling on the curvaceous stalactites. My husband, who was a spelunker in...

Photo Of The Day: Sunset Walk

Photo Of The Day: Sunset Walk Jul 29th, 2012 at 6:00PM: Flickr user GogoTheGogo has taken a photo of what looks like the end of a perfect day. The image features a solitary figure in silhouette walking through the grass against a fiery orange sky in Zagreb, Crotia. I love the warm colors, the way the light plays off the little puffs of cloud, and most of all, the anonymity of that lone figure who gets to take this magnificent scene in. Taken any...

Six Great Mediterranean Cruise Ship Ports

Six Great Mediterranean Cruise Ship Ports Jul 25th, 2012 at 2:00PM: Some of the best Mediterranean cruise ship ports appear on a variety of itineraries from several cruise lines. Traveling via cruise ship, vacationers are able to see six or more different ports on a seven- to 10-day sailing. That's covering a lot of ground quickly and efficiently, making a Mediterranean cruise one of the most intense of all sailings. As if a new, different and exciting port...

A Few Mediterranean Sidewalk Cafés Can Make Travel Personal

A Few Mediterranean Sidewalk Cafés Can Make Travel Personal Jun 26th, 2012 at 4:00PM: In popular cities of the Mediterranean, mobs of tourists come by bus, train, air and cruise ship. Looking to see famous destinations with their own eyes, perhaps fulfilling lifelong dreams, they clamber for the best view. During the summer, many visitors point and shoot only the top of iconic destinations to avoid photos that include the herd. But on a recent trip to the Mediterranean, we found...

European low-cost airlines fail to enforce charges and fees

European low-cost airlines fail to enforce charges and fees Jul 7th, 2011 at 11:30AM: Flying around Europe on low-cost airlines over the last few months has taught me a few things. Among the most useful lessons I've picked up: Baggage and check-in fees and charges are enforced quite unevenly. European low-cost carriers present their customers with a frightening thicket of charges and fees. These charges, which serve as a revenue stream for the airlines, are less readily...

Dubrovnik in a day

Dubrovnik in a day May 4th, 2011 at 7:00AM: We had just a few hours in Dubrovnik, Croatia and wanted to make the best of it. Arriving via cruise ship, time was limited. This was the first port of call on a 9-night Mediterranean cruise which looked to be a good sampling of the area. The plan is to hit each destination hard, see some highlights and capture enough information to decide if a return trip might be in the cards for future...

Photo of the Day - Boats in Croatia

Photo of the Day - Boats in Croatia Jan 16th, 2011 at 6:00PM: As a kid, I spent lots of summer vacations staring at boats in the harbor. I never had a good reason for it but today, Flickr user nicocrisafulli's photo brought all those boat memories rushing back. There's something childlike and wonderful about their motion, sound and colors: the way they chaotically bob up and down, the soft thwapping of the covers whipping in the breeze and their colorful...

Weekending: Sarajevo

Weekending: Sarajevo Sep 15th, 2010 at 11:00AM: Istanbul's unique position straddling two continents affords a lot of travel opportunities, with quick direct flights throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. As an American living in Turkey, I try to explore as often as I can, particularly to less-traveled destinations. While my last weekend trip was to Prague, for this trip, I ventured to another Eastern European capital with far fewer...

Dubrovnik: Pearl of the Adriatic

Dubrovnik: Pearl of the Adriatic Aug 13th, 2010 at 12:30PM: "Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and see Dubrovnik." – George Bernard Shaw, Nobel Prize winning writer and playwright A bright star perched along the Croatian coast of the sparkling Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik looks more like the inspiration for the Disney set for Pirates of the Caribbean than any other real place on earth. Constructed as a series of fortresses to...

Cruising the Greek Isles on the MSC Musica: Best trip 2009

Cruising the Greek Isles on the MSC Musica: Best trip 2009 Dec 31st, 2009 at 2:30PM: I never saw myself as a cruise ship sort of traveler until MSC Musica made me a changed woman. I'm the person who lived for two years in N'Jowara, The Gambia in a room at the back of an empty shop house without running water, window panes or electricity. Until my MSC Musica cruise, my extended boat travel was five days on the Niger River in Mali, first perched on feed sacks in a ramshackle wooden...

Heart-shaped Croatian island attracts curious, lovebirds

Heart-shaped Croatian island attracts curious, lovebirds Feb 14th, 2009 at 3:00PM: Croatia's geography lends itself to love. The country is blessed with a scenic coastline along the Adriatic Sea - a stretch of land that is dotted with picturesque rocky islands and scenic beach towns like Dubrovnik and Hvar. Not surprisingly, Croatia has long attracted tourists and couples - during the summer months, it's the perfect spot for laying on the beach, island-hopping and plenty of...

Amazing Race 12, episode 6 recap

Amazing Race 12, episode 6 recap Dec 10th, 2007 at 11:01AM: Here we are again, starting out this time in Vilnius, Lithuania. Karma really caught up to the blondes last week when they were eliminated after leading to the demise of Lorena and Jason. Will the same fate await Jen and Nate, the couple who can't stop shrieking at one another? Only time will tell. So, onto the recap. TK and Rachel came in first last time, so they were the first to leave -- To...

Photo of the Day (3/19/07)

Photo of the Day (3/19/07) Mar 19th, 2007 at 7:37AM: As winter seems to not want to loosen its grip, what better than to think of warmer times and places? Here's a shot of the sun setting over the red tile roofs of Dubrovnik, Croatia, taken on a fairly recent trip there. Can you feel the warm breeze off the Mediterranean?...
