"A Walk in the Woods" With Robert Redford & Nick Nolte

Robert Redford and Nick Nolte

In their latest film, "A Walk in the Woods," Robert Redford plays Bill Bryson, a successful travel writer and Nick Nolte, plays his old friend Stephen Katz, a serial philanderer who is down on his luck. Ken Kwapis directs the film written by Bill Holderman, based on a book by Bill Bryson. The story revolves around two aging friends who decide to hike the 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail, beginning in Georgia and ending in Maine.

Great Wolf Lodge: An Unparalleled Land-and-Water Adventure for Kids of all Ages

inside Historic St. Mary's County
"You want me to get on THAT and go down to where?" I wailed from high atop the Alberta Falls waterslide, looking down to an alleged pool that was well out of visual range. My 11-year-old grand-daughter nodded with a look of both consternation and resignation that I tried very hard to take in stride. Such was my introduction to a vast array of unusual children's activities that mesmerized the 70-year-old kid in me as much as they did Dalya, 14 and Mollie, 11 as we frolicked through Great Wolf Lodge.

37 Above 60, Part II
By Adam Sholder

The Dempster Highway looking north

It was 4:00, and far too late to begin an eight-hour journey into the unknown. But there I was anyway, 30 miles out of Dawson, and sitting parked in front of the sign indicating the beginning of the 450 mile-long gravel road known as The Dempster Highway. Completed in 1979 after 20 years of construction, the Dempster is named after Sergeant Jack Dempster of the North West Mounted Police.

Bekonscot Model Village: It's a Time Warp Wonderful Look at 1930s England

Bekonscot model village
You can take the A40 road from London to get there, and drive along what's often called one of England's "really scenic roads" and, in a leisurely drive, it'll take you just over an hour to traverse the 27 miles to the destination: the charming, genuinely unique village of Bekonscot in the town of Beaconsfield in the equally British sounding county of Buckinghamshire.

Ireland Vacations for The Super Rich & Famous

medieval-style tower at the Ballyfin Hotel

The official press trip had come to an end and the journalists invited on this extraordinary adventure all went their separate ways. Some headed for home, while others chose to do some exploring on their own. As for me, just when I thought I had experienced the height of luxury visiting some of the exclusive castles in Northern Ireland, a "gilding the lily" experience awaited me in my private, escorted visit to the Republic of Ireland.

LederMann leather gear bag

I travel a lot and I need luggage that can keep up with me. And when it comes to a bag that I can carry every day, I recently found a great one. It's the Leather Briefcase Gear Bag by LederMann. From a dusty trail to a business meeting or dinner party, this classy, Western-styled piece is always welcome and appropriate.

37 Above 60, Part I: You're Going Where?
By Adam Sholder

Stumblebum Spruces on the Yukon River Valley

When I told people about my plans for a summer camping trip a few years back, the response was almost invariably, "Why?" It wasn’t an unfair question to ask, as my camping trip was a solo journey that took me deep into the Arctic. Beginning in Canada’s Yukon Territory, or “Above 60” as it’s known to the locals (the Territory begins as 60 degrees latitude), I traveled about 800 miles further north on the globe, to the very shores of the Arctic Ocean.

A Picture Perfect Getaway to Laguna Beach

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how can one describe the spectacle of the Pageant of the Masters? The answer is that it can't truly be described; it must be seen in person to fully appreciate its magnificence.

Mount Stewart

In Part 1, which covered Days 1 and 2 of this amazing journey through Northern Ireland, we explored Carrickfergus Castle; had a fabulous meal at the beautiful French Rooms at Bushmills and visited Glenarm Castle. We explored the ancient Giant's Causeway with its scientific, as well as mythological, explanations of its formation; wandered through the ruins of Dunluce Castle. Could Days 3 and 4 get any better?

Justin Johnson: 'Roots from the Road'

Justin Johnson

The first thing you notice when walking down the street in Clarksdale, Mississippi is the music. Sound is pulsating from every business, restaurant, garage, storefront and coffee shop. It's probably to be expected at this time of year, after all we're in the cradle of the blues, at the Crossroads and Clarksdale's 9th annual Caravan Music Fest. Rounding the corner on Delta Ave. there's a distinctive metallic slide blues emanating from the Cat Head Delta Blues and Folk Art Store.

Northern Ireland: The Land of Castles, Legends & Myths
(PART 1)

Carrickfergus Castle in County Antrim

How lucky can one travel writer be? I'll tell you how lucky. I was the only American journalist invited on a recent press trip to Northern Ireland. The select group of writers flew in from all over the world including, India, South Africa, Sweden, Holland, and Germany. This opportunity was especially exciting since I had already been to the Republic of Ireland on three previous trips. Exploring Belfast, and the surrounding towns, was a new experience...

"Marvelous Monaco" – By Helicopter!

aerial view of Monaco
What "images" appear in your mind about Monaco? To me it's stunning, multimillion homes, lush tropical shrubbery, and glamorous gambling casinos with equally beautiful, ultra-wealthy people. I was sure there was also a fairy tale Mediterranean harbor overflowing with multimillion dollar yachts and huge luxurious motor boats – all of which made me think Monaco is into the stratosphere of luxury and riches, it's far beyond the reach of the "normal tourist." Wow, was I wrong.

Grand Canyon's Timeless Gift

Grand Canyon
Expectations are high upon boarding the history-laden Grand Canyon train in Williams, Arizona in the heart of the Kaibab National Forest. Recognized as the "Gateway to the Grand Canyon," the town has the character of Route 66, the Old West, and a 1940s movie set where a straight shot of whiskey, scuffed boots, and a battered guitar set the mood.

Global Passenger Traffic Continues Along Growth Path with Increase of 5% in H1 2015; Air Freight Volumes Show Signs of Subdued Growth

Global passenger traffic increased by 4.2% year over year for the month of June while international and domestic traffic posted growth rates of 5% and 3.6% respectively. Air freight volumes showed more modest growth for the month of June at 2.1% year over year. International freight experienced weakness as volumes inched up by only 0.9%, whereas domestic freight traffic increased by 4.8%. Considering the economic uncertainty from the Greek debt crisis and the geopolitical risks stemming from ongoing events in Ukraine, the Middle East and West Africa, air travel has remained relatively resilient in the first half of 2015.

Deb's poetry break

Let Me Travel
One More Mile
By Anoop Kumar

Traveling on this grassless road
I am feeling alone
Although I have travel on this before
but today there is something different
So let me Travel one more Mile

May be because I have no one to travel with
searching for the face that matches
with the copy in my heart
Standing in folk but feeling alone
So let me Travel one more Mile

Many kissers around me
but Kissed by none
And look…… I found someone and I smiled
But I lost her like sand from my fist
So let me Travel one more Mile

Talkers talking around me
with costly and shoddy voice
Enjoying companies without any attention on me
but still searching the face smiling for me
So let me Travel one more Mile

Spoting that twisted stone under the tree
I recognised I end where I start
but again after thinking something
I traveled again in search of someone in my life
So let me Travel one more Mile.

Send Deb your favorite travel poems.



Airbus: Worst Airplane Seat Ever

Airbus filed a patent for what will be the least comfortable airplane seat in the sky. The new design features saddle-like seats that can fold up when not in use. Gone are cushions, padded armrests, tray tables and personal space: The new seating plan, of course, would allow airlines to cram more passengers into the limited space of the cabin.


Airlines with the Most Extra Fees
Courtesy SmarterTravel

The airlines call them ancillary revenues. Travelers call it nickel-and-diming. By whatever name, the dizzying array of fees that airlines now impose for everything from checked bags to carry-on bags to seat selection to ticket reissues is big business.
