The World Through the Windshield – What a Trip!

Whatever your interest – history, magnificent scenery or many other passions – it’s likely there’s a driving trip, and maybe many, to satisfy your curiosity and spirit of adventure.

Senior Moments

Two Thousand Miles for a Piece of Pie

I first learned about Pie Town from a Sixty Minutes segment entitled “Slice of Life.” The story captured my imagination, and I felt like I had received an engraved invitation to go there and have a slice of my favorite pie, chocolate cream. One cannot turn down an engraved invitation.

Great Things to Do in the Phoenix/Scottsdale Area

The Geographic gallery is a trip around the world through music with tableaus that feature the musical instruments of an area plus the clothing and other artifacts. Most vignettes include a video of groups playing their instruments in native apparel.

Tokyo or Not Tokyo, That Is the Question

I never imagined wanting to go to Japan when I was a kid growing up in New Hampshire. Heck, I didn't even want to go down South because it seemed too foreign. But about 10 years ago, I took a class in the Art of the Bonsai and began shaping little trees.

Travel the World in Just One U.S. Neighborhood

For many visitors, the greatest appeal is that Queens is the most ethnically diverse county in the United States. More than half of its residents were born outside the U.S., immigrated from over 120 counties and speak some 135 languages.

Quebec City – The Heart and Soul of French Canada

Montmorency Falls, which is higher than Niagara Falls, is often included in a Quebec City tour. There is a cable car ride to the top and viewing platforms.

Doesn’t Have to Be Halloween to See Monsters

In keeping with the frightening aspect of Halloween, let’s check out cryptids that are said to have had a taste for human flesh. In the traditions of New Zealand’s native Maori people, the violent Maero fiends devoured their prey after killing them with long, sharp fingernails.
