In this issue:

Lošinj Small

In Destinations: Picture gazing out over the unpolluted sparkling royal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea, breathing in salt infused pure sweet air and the fragrance and beauty of dark-green pine forests silhouetted against the azure sky.  By Barbara Angelakis  Read More...

Playa Small

In Hotels & Resorts: Before the internet, planning a vacation was a personal exchange between a client and a travel agent. What has presently evolved is a flood of online travel booking sites and hotel sales offices selling time shares and a wide cross of long term Vacation Club memberships to pre-qualified buyers. By Babbie DeDerian           Read More...

Torri de Bagnara Pieve San Quirico castle

Additionally in Destinations: Lemon blossom fragrance, truffles’ earthy taste, chocolate’s intoxicating aroma.  The hushed murmur of people at prayer, a cacophony of tweeting birds,  the simple silence of stillness.  I experienced them all while living in a castle. Pieve San Quirico Castle at Le Torri de Bagnara, Umbria. By Norma Davidoff      Read More...

Avila Gate

Also in Destinations: It seemed almost a sacrilege to attend a dinner titled “Teresa among the cooking pots” given her vows of poverty and abstinence and the austere cloistered life St. Teresa of Avila led, but there I was walking through the lovely gardens of Avila’s magnificent old Piedras Albas Palace, now converted into a hotel called the Parador de Ávila.

MAMO Spaghettini alle Vongole Small

In the new First Taste section: MAMO is a well known French Riviera restaurant that has opened a NYC outpost at 323 West Broadway. When we recently dined at the West Broadway location I found the cuisine to be excellent Italian. By Manos Angelakis        Read More...

BQE Tours Small

Also in Destinations: Travelers to the Big Apple and even native New Yorkers can take surprisingly eye-opening tours of Brooklyn and Queens.  BQE Tours, specializes in leading groups of 6-12 in one of several Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods full of “insider” opportunities and the unexpected behind every door. By Richard Schulman                    Read More...

Val-Jalbert Small

Additionally in Destinations:The 1920s roared for flappers, dandies, and tycoons in the U.S. and Canada, but one little mill town in Quebec quietly went about its pulp-milling business. Stores, a small hotel, a post office, and attractive houses lined Main Street and the curving road up to the mill. The scenery is spectacular.  By Carol Stigger                        Read More...

Quebec City Festival small

Also in Destinations: I was among a small group of journalists visiting Quebec City for its annual New France Festival (Les Fętes de la Nouvelle-France) in August, which includes reenactments, parades, and lots of people dressed in 17th and 18th century costumes.
