Feedback for New Mexico

Deb, these pictures make me want to visit NM. I think they're amazing.

Eugene, OR

Feedback for Oasis of the Seas

I hope that's not Ed in the Flowrider photo holding the hand of the attendant. I will be pulling his man card if it is. Hope you and Ed are well.

Salt Lake City, UT

Mike - Always a pleasure to hear from you. If you look closely at a number of the photos, you will see a strange-looking man in trench coat and Borsalino, reading a newspaper. I believe that's Ed.

I have never been on a cruise ship (on purpose) and this one looks like a city to me -- something to escape from. Anyway, where is the lap pool? Love your pics!

Beautiful pictures, as always, Deb. It reminds me of Las Vegas somehow.

Hi Debbie,Your images are fabulous! What an experience of this amazing "city" on water you have captured for viewers to enjoy! Cruise ships can be boring, as I have experienced...but this one is chock full of things to do. Your emphasis is on the delightful activities and not on the food one can consume! Thanks Deb!

Westlake Village, CA

What fun! It's hard to imagine that this amazing piece of architecture and engineering floats all over the world. I want to be on one of these babies when the great flood decides to make a comeback. Your pictures are amazing. Lots of movement, lots of interplay of light and shadow. You did a fine job Debbie. Wish there were more.

Omaha, NE

As always, I love your eye for beauty. In your Guadalajara article you capture the people. In your Tahiti pictures, it is the scenic beauty that mesmerized me. I love especially the tranquil silhouettes with their mirror images. Where can I get a good deal to visit the place? Simply beautiful! Send us more!

South Pasadena, CA

Okay, I’m going to Guadalajara. It looks like a destination that Mexican tourists go to. Amazing shots. Of course, I’m a sucker for kids.

You certainly have an eye for photography. Sometimes we stay in a place too long to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. Your photos show a visitor appreciating not only the sculptures but the intermingling of the people around it. I believe sculptures were meant to be experienced and I'm glad the Guadalajara government opened this interaction instead of relegating these pieces in a stuffy museum.

Would love to see more of your work.

Seeing kids playing on art: that's amazing. It's what art and travel are all about. Thanks for capturing some pretty striking images. These should be in a book.

Paul Lucas
Vancouver, BC

The images are magnificent; I have only been to Mexico on two occasions and would love to discover more of it. I’ll have to add Guadalajara to my long list of places to visit.

Three Musical Pilgrimages: Mozart, Grieg and Hendrix

Troldhaugen Villa in Bergen, Norway
Johann Chrysostom Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791) could read and compose music, plus play the violin and piano, when he was five years old. Born into a musical family in Salzburg, Austria (then the Holy Roman Empire), he had a unique ability for imitating music, which first became evident when he recited a musical piece by simply observing his father conducting a lesson to his older sister. This led to a childhood on the road, where the young prodigy performed before many of the royal courts of Europe.

Treasures of Ireland: The Irish Goodbye (Dispatch #20)

The Palladian Traveler brings to a close his 20-part series on the Emerald Isle from an upscale restaurant in downtown Dublin where he files his final dispatch and then quietly slips away.

Lake Charles’ Family-Size Low-Key Mardi Gras

dressed-up for the Mardi Gras
The Southwest Louisiana Mardi Gras in Lake Charles, the second largest in Louisiana, does not need parents there to avert their children’s eyes. This is family entertainment and children are very much part of it. The main office of the Lake Charles CVB has costumes from last year’s Mardi Gras but it also has figures to fascinate little ones from country boys fishing for their dinner to alligators who have already fed and are rubbing their stomachs.

Puerto Vallarta: Magic and Mayhem on the Malecon

Cedar Hill, Washington DC
So I heard that you could spend from dawn to dusk on the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and never get bored and I thought, "Okay, I'm up for that challenge." Well, maybe not the dawn part – I'm not a morning person – so I had no problem leaving those early hours to the joggers and those seeking an early start to catch their red snapper for dinner.

NOLA: New Orleans, Louisiana

19th century building, Stuttgart, Germany
Mardi Gras, the French Quarter, the Garden District, the streetcar (now a bus) to Desire, the jazz clubs, the beignets at the Café du Monde and breakfast at Brennan’s come to mind when you think of New Orleans. But that’s not all there is to this unique American city, filled with treasures both culinary and cultural.

Japan: Bullet Trains, Monkey Shows and Whale Steaks

Nikko Temple gate
Last month, I went to Japan for three things... Ok, let me back up a little bit already. The #1 reason I went to Japan was to visit my girlfriend, Yuki, and she will kill me if I don't say that, so there it is. Hi Yuki! Anyway, so after that, reasons number 2, 3, and 4 were the following: I wanted to ride a bullet train, go to a monkey show, and eat a whale steak. That's right. That's right.
