After traveling to over 100 countries I am often asked, “Where is your favorite place to travel?” My answer depends on what you searching for.  I have favorite places to go SCUBA diving, skiing, to get away from technology and places I cannot wait to explore. I want to share six places that when I … Continued

First, a caveat.  I’m in the travel business, and not the armchair, I’ll-book-your-trip-for-you type. I lead trips myself.  Trips to Bali, where bombs killed tourists less than a decade ago; to Spain, where thousands rioted in the streets against austerity measures; to Egypt, where the recent US embassy attack marked the latest in a long … Continued

It’s nearly midnight on the beach in Puerto Vallarta and I am crouched down over a small open pit, watching something that looks like a scene from Alien — strange pink flesh and lots of drippy goo.  Over the pit, right at my eye level, an enormous sea turtle is heeding the strongest call of nature and … Continued

I’m in the travel business, right?

The recent kidnapping of an American minister and two other tourists by Bedouin intent on gaining prison release of a family member was … Continued

A visit to the holy springs of Tirta Empul is a glimpse inside Bali’s spiritual heart. Almost devoid of tourists but brimming with locals come to take the holy waters, Tirta Empul is at once crowded, joyful, raucous, and deeply uplifting. Tirta Empul, the “Ganges” of Bali, is a centuries-old place of purification. The legend … Continued

Sometimes in the life of a spiritual person come things that are really, really “of this world.” Things like “Mad Men,” chili cheese fries, and now, Klout.com. Klout is a potentially terrifying yet extremely awesome social media metric site that basically tells you how cool you are.  Not really.  Actually, it tells you how cool other people think … Continued

By Halle Eavelyn Experiencing dawn at the Temple of Isis at Philae should be a part of everyone’s holidays in Egypt. However, usually only people going for spiritual travel will get to have this incredible opportunity. We take a bus from our cruise ship, arriving in the pitch black at the ticket booth, and then … Continued

Author Rachel Friedman’s travel memoir The seasons go round and round sometimes without notice, but I like to pay attention. The Labor Day holiday reminds us that summer has almost ended and the school year will soon begin. This year my contemplation of beginnings and endings includes my Aunt Iris’s passing and Christopher Rowe’s (my … Continued
