The Un-Cruise's Safari Explorer is for people like me who never had the urge to go on a cruise ship that resembles a huge floating resort village.
On my first trip to Hawaii I wanted to see as many of the islands as possible with a focus on the wildlife and culture. While I was searching for ways to do that, I happened on the website for Un-Cruise, which travels from the Big Island to Maui to Lanai and ends on Molokai with a variety of ocean [...]]]>
Travel and Adventure: Old Town Mazatlan has a lively pulse Fri, 28 Feb 2014 20:54:54 +0000 Creators Syndicate
A lot has changed since my parents visited Mazatlan many years ago. In the 1990s it was known for the row of beach hotels in the Golden Zone and big-game fishing. There are fewer fish now due to overfishing, but travelers who desire an ocean voyage can go whale-watching. Whales pass by the coast of Mazatlan beginning in mid-December and ending in April.
About 15 years ago the folks in Mazatlan — or Mazatlecos, as they refer to themselves — [...]]]>
Travel and Adventure: Losing sight in Cancun with a Sense Adventure Tour Fri, 28 Feb 2014 20:46:32 +0000 Creators Syndicate
When I was first blindfolded, I felt disoriented and out of control. But our Mayan guide propelled me back into the moment by explaining that when our sight — our main sense in relating to the world around us — is cut off, the other senses are expanded. Thus began our Sense Adventure Tour, part of a larger eco-oriented nature park and sustainable tourism program at the Hacienda Tres Rios Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
As part of this tour I [...]]]>

Travel and Adventure: Why take a cruise? Fri, 28 Feb 2014 20:29:32 +0000 Creators Syndicate
I love cruises. I have cruised the Arctic Circle, the Australian Gold Coast, the Baltic Sea, the Mediterranean and even crossed the Atlantic twice. My shortest cruise was five days (Greek Isles), the longest 27 nights — a Celebrity cruise from San Diego through the Panama Canal that ended in England.
And I have friends who would love to cruise if only they could talk their spouses into it. Some reluctant ones think they'd be bored floating on [...]]]>
Travel and Adventure: Learn about Malibu through its historic homes Fri, 28 Feb 2014 20:14:43 +0000 Creators Syndicate
The mention of the name Malibu conjures up visions of the wealthy and famous, of a gated enclave where anyone without a Hollywood pedigree need not apply. But the happy surprise is that the area has a colorful history and much to offer anyone who makes time to seek it out.
I made this discovery quite by accident. While I was driving down the Pacific Coast Highway during a recent visit to Los Angeles, I saw the small sign that marked the entrance to [...]]]>

I flew into Pittsburgh's airport not knowing what to expect. The name "Pittsburgh" conjured up gnarly images of rusting steel mills and people in pickups waving yellow "Terrible Towels." But after touring this serendipitous city, I would recommend it to anyone as a desirable place to visit.
You might be surprised to learn, as I was, that Pittsburgh has been awarded a gazillion accolades, such as "most livable city," "best city to relocate to" and "No. [...]]]>
