Welcome to Hawaii

Aloha! Welcome to

Explore a rich tapestry of nature and culture on the Islands of Hawaii and Kona

Hilo, Hawai‘i has the distinction of being the wettest city in the U.S. with an average of 276 days of rain per year. I can personally attest to this fact, having recently been to the city and experiencing intermittent heavy squalls and downpours during my visit. The silver lining in all this “liquid sunshine,” however, were all the spectacular waterfalls that thundered down from the cliffs.


Korea's Lost Silla Kingdom

Discovering Korea's Lost

Silla Kingdom

Featyre by Max Reynolds

Over a thousand years ago, one dynasty united the three kingdoms of Korea

General Kim Yushin sat atop his horse, surveying the battlefield from a vantage point on the hill. He knew that the battle was not going well. Despite having the best of the Silla army at his command and backed up with their allies the Tang army from China, his forces were far outnumbered by the 300,000 soldiers of the Baekje and Goguryeo kingdoms. But he also knew that he had a plan.


Amazing food at Aird's Hotel in Scotland

Airds Hotel in Port Appin Scotland

A Foodie's Fantasy Fulfilled

Feature by Paul Pence

A scenic drive through Scotland's picturesque landscape led to an exauisite and unforgettable culinary experience.

The drive to Port Appin from Inverness took most of the day. Along the way, my new bride Linda and I waded in Loch Ness looking for Nessie the famous monster, toured the Ben Nevis whisky distillery, and saw countryside views enough to fill a lifetime of post cards. The last hour of the trip took us on tight roads and then tighter roads, so narrow that every hundred yards or so the single lane road had wide spots specifically for letting oncoming cars pass.


Barge Curising in Burgundy

Barge Cruising in Burgundy

Taking It Slow

Feature by Debbie Stone

Leave your preconceptions behind and embark on a jouney of luxury, charm, and hidden treasures like no other.

When most people think of a barge, they envision a flat-bottomed boat that hauls goods down a waterway – a working vessel. So when I told family and friends that I was going on a barge cruise in France, I received quizzical and confused looks. They didn’t understand why I was choosing to travel by what they perceived to be an uncomfortable mode of transportation.

An Unforgettable Experience

Rocket Launch

Reflections by Linda Eagleson

Share the awe-inspiring experience of witnessing a rocket launch at Cape Canaveral, Florida, in this heartfelt personal account that surpasses all expectations.

Over the course of our lives, there’s usually something that happens where we experience an event that is so awe inspiring that it takes our breath away. The birth of a child, a beloved’s marriage; a spectacular sunset. It’s is so incredible that you just know it will be something that you will remember for the rest of your life. I got to experience that very special moment with my husband not too long ago in Florida when we witnessed a rocket launch.
