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...

Off The Beaten Winter Path In Colorado: Backcountry Dining At The Tennessee Pass Cookhouse Jan 10th, 2013 at 10:00AM: "We're going to ski in to this place where you get lunch served in a yurt." My Colorado friends know what it takes to get me excited about life; combine an outdoor pursuit with eating and I am almost always game. I didn't even need to know the details of where we were going. The fact that I was going to a restaurant in a backcountry setting was good enough. Near Leadville, Colorado,...

Jun 4th, 2012 at 11:00AM: I've lived in Spain part time for eight years now and I've been under the impression that Madrid is the highest European capital at 667 meters (2,188 feet) above sea level.

I made the trip to St. Ignace, a small town located on the banks of...
