Travel

When we realize that each day is not "one more day" but, actually, one day less, we might internalize how precious time and life is... and how the time to travel is now, which is the only time you have at hand. Travel with gusto, getting lost, taking risks... take it all in.

Jerusalem- This adventure in Israel involved the rental of a battered van and taking to off roads, stopping everywhere to taste the food in tiny holes in wall, until we took the small detour and reached Jordan. Crossing the Israel border by car is possible through Jord...

Santa Cruz- I traveled to Galápagos Islands alone. Before I met my husband, traveling solo to destinations such as this, was something I relished. I traveled around the world alone, with a suitcase, my travel guides and a positive disposition, which is really all you n...

San Juan- Sometimes the small detour that very few know about becomes a huge phenomenon worldwide. "Despacito", the international song sensation by puertorrican singers Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee has done that to this humble and picturesque ba...

Rincón- This surfer's town on the west tip of Puerto Rico is one of my top five favorites on the island. If don't relax here, I guarantee you will not relax anywhere.  As it happens, to go with the flow, be friendly and relax is part of Rincon's idiosyncrasy. The town...

Chile- We were on assignment covering politics in Chile when, during our last day, we received an invitation from one of the gentlemen in charge of Chile's biggest vineyards, Concha y Toro. Of course, we dropped everything and ran there immediately. We spend a lovely a...

Vienna- As with many innovative structures around the world, the daring Hass Haus in striking Vienna was originally very controversial. Local architect Hans Hollein created a modern glass structure opposite St. Stephens Cathedral, no less, an idea very disputed among t...

Havana- Since there is a lot of (nostalgic) hype regarding  Cuba, even from formal traveling publications that should know better, here is a quick, real, down to earth guide to surviving it. First and crucial: do not attempt to go during the summer; you will fry alive....
