Old Bagan, Myanmar

There is a lesson I keep learning, first at the Vatican in Rome, then in Greece, and now in Myanmar, and it is: Cover Thy Knees. Looking back, the skirt I wore in Greece, (where I was chased out of a mountainside monastery by a screaming monk, shaking a broom), was indeed blasphemously short. Today’s … Read More


Sandhamn Island

If famous couple wanted to have private wedding, then Sandham Island would be the place. The amount of travel would be a deterrent even for the most ambitious paparazzi. First, one must fly to Stockholm. Then, take a hour plus bus ride (or hire a car, which is most likely if one is famous) to … Read More

If you can manage to get a window seat on the inbound flight to Alaska – I highly recommend it. Keep your camera in hand for the stunning view of choppy mountains, ribboned with snow. Anchorage Highlights: Kaladi Brothers Coffee; Fire Island Bake Shop; Chilkoot Charlies Bird House Bar and a midnight baseball game.

The Drive to Seward

Seward, Alaska

The drive from Anchorage to Seward is possibly better than the town itself. The road follows the water for the first portion of the drive offering breathtaking views of mountains across the water. Seward is a town caught in a time-warp. If you want to feel like you are participating in some indie-retro movie – here … Read More
