Honoring American Pilot Billy Fiske of the RAF

the Glenfinnan Viaduct
When you first see the plaque you might wonder how on earth Billy Fiske, an American Olympic champion, and the son of a wealthy New York City banker, was flying British Hurricane fighters in 1940, during "The Battle of Britain" in World War Two. Especially when you know that America was still nearly a year and a half away from entering that war. Even more extraordinary is that when Fiske died the British not only created the aforementioned special plaque about him, but placed it in Britain's iconic St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Islands of Croatia – Sanctuaries of Beauty, Grace & Rejuvenation, Part II

Veli Losinj, Croatia

Today we would be introduced to Wellness Hotel Aurora, one of the famous Health Zones on the island of Lošinj. As far back as 1884, Professor Ambroz Haracic released his research demonstrating the correlation between the climate and the island's indigenous plants as impacting positively on health issues. Several years later, the Austro-Hungarian government in Vienna acknowledged Mali and Veli Lošinj as healing centers.

Walk Japan: Exploring the Head, the Heart and the Soul of a Country

the Golden Pavilion, Kyoto
It is not often that a toilet and a tea ceremony form perfect metaphors for the culture of a country, but so it is in Japan. The toilet falls into the realm of delightful personal discoveries – albeit all of them in the hotel bathroom of the Kyoto Park Hotel. First, a warm toilet seat with a variety of buttons that cleaned more areas with water spray than I have nether region body parts...

Wizarding World of Harry Potter Brings More Magic to Universal Studios

Heisler Park, Laguna Beach

Every magical kingdom needs a good castle, and with the addition of "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" attraction, Universal Studios Hollywood now has one of the best I've seen this side of Transylvania or even Hogwarts. Opened in April of this year, the attraction is inspired by J.K. Rowling's world-famous stories and characters that were brought to life in eight Warner Bros. films.

Therapeutic Glimpses of Canada

lake in Canada

If lucky to enjoy more than your fair share of travel, eventually you’ll be asked your favorite place. It’s a tough one, most places have their fascinations. One doesn’t choose to go somewhere without first determining it worth one’s time. So top picks usually include the latest experience. And folks in America, with its embarrassment of travel riches, are already a bit spoiled if they get around at all. But this traveler never feels he’s giving a bum steer answering to look northward.

Discovering Paradise: Spokane, Pullman and the Palouse

the Palouse's rolling hills
While everyone seemed to be relocating north to Seattle, I bolted from my home town for the bright lights of Los Angeles. But I would return to my ancestral home often. While visiting, I would frequently kick myself for never exploring the amazing attractions outside of the western part of the state. Sure, I knew Western Washington's Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, the islands of Puget Sound, the rain forests and the rugged Washington coast well, but I never really gave the rich agricultural eastern part of the state a chance. This spring I decided to do something about it.

Eric Anderson's travel blog/review
Traveling in Northern Italy

the Basilica San Zeno Maggiore, Verona
Italy seems to enjoy American visitors more than it does any other European country. Indeed it really, really welcomes them – maybe because Italy has sent us so many immigrants and we are now traveling amongst their relatives. And American travelers love Italy. That may go back to the early parts of the 20th century when, for sure, Rome and, probably, Florence were a part of the Grand Tour. But with the exception of Venice and maybe Pisa you seldom see folk from our country if you travel through northern Italy.

Alaska Marine Highway

Petersburg, Alaska
Hey man, I know how it is. I really do. Sometimes you just don't want to spend $1,500 a week on a cruise ship to see some spectacular bidness. That's fine, it really is. If that's your story, and you really want to get out of the house this summer and take a great vacation with a budget in mind along the western coast of say, Canada and Alaska, for example, conveniently located geographically just outside of the evil clutches of the former Soviet empire, then an Alaska Marine Highway vacation is for you.

Memories of a Rock and Roller: Mick Taylor

Mick Taylor

It's not everyday you run into a man who was both a Bluesbreaker with John Mayall and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist with the Rolling Stones. But I did just that, turning around to face Mick Taylor a few years ago, backstage at the Long Beach Blues Festival. When I was finally able to wipe the idiotic 'big-fan' grin off my face, our conversation started with the legendary Sonny Boy Williamson...

Eyes Wide Open in Fairbanks: A Trip to Alaska’s Mighty Interior

aurora borealis lights up the night sky near Fairbanks
I had just put my head on the hotel room pillow. The day had been a fun – but it was also long and taxing – and a good night’s sleep was in order. Suddenly, the riveting sound of something as bad as bulldozer challenged my senses. I looked at my hotel clock – it was 1 AM. I bolted out of bed, charged to the hotel window and pulled open the curtain. Across the river, there was a man operating, well, a bulldozer.

An Expedition to the Norwegian Arctic

cruise ship in Svalbard, Norway
As recently as 1990 there was virtually no tourism to the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, Norway. Located in the Arctic Ocean between the Norwegian mainland and the North Pole, Svalbard ("cold edge") was believed to be discovered by the Vikings in the 12th century. It became a base for many Arctic expeditions, then home to whalers and coal miners.

In other words, how much do you want what you say you do in life? Is the reality 40%, 60% or is it the vital figure of 100%. As you’ll hear, if it’s 100% it makes all the difference in the world.


Deb's poetry break

Sonnets Xix: Devouring Time, Blunt Thou The Lion's Paws
by William Shakespeare

Devouring Time, blunt thou the lion's paws,
And make the earth devour her own sweet brood;
Pluck the keen teeth from the fierce tiger's jaws,
And burn the long-liv'd Phoenix in her blood;
Make glad and sorry seasons as thou fleets,
And do whate'er thou wilt, swift-footed Time,
To the wide world and all her fading sweets;
But I forbid thee one more heinous crime:
O, carve not with the hours my love's fair brow,
Nor draw no lines there with thine antique pen!
Him in thy course untainted do allow
For beauty's pattern to succeeding men.
Yet do thy worst, old Time! Despite thy wrong
My love shall in my verse ever live young.

Traveling Boy Recipe Travel recipe of the month

From Norway – Lutefisk


The Lofoten Islands consist of stunning mountain peaks that seem to come right out of the sea, and sheltered inlets populated with little fishing villages. For centuries, fishing has been the very foundation of life on the islands. While on the deck of a vessel outside a fishing village, I overheard an American passenger ask a Norwegian what those things were hanging on stilts. The Norwegian replied that it was air-dried cod for making Lutefisk. The American exclaimed, "And the birds don't eat it?" The Norwegian shrugged, 'No, they don't seem to like it.'
