With its quaint canals, breathtaking views and incredible art, the magical city of Venice has proven an irresistible draw for generations of travelers.

Barcelona

Barcelona

The vibrant Spanish city of Barcelona is a study in dichotomy, a place with two distinct languages, split between a modern metropolis and a gothic past, business savvy by day and pulsing with energy at night.

While almost all of Europe is friendlier terrain for cyclists than the United States, there’s one route that is the hands-down best – the paved, mostly flat and winding cycle path that parallels the long, meandering Mosel River in western Germany. Imagine riding for a week past vineyards stretching up steep mountainsides on both banks […]

Korcula, Croatia

Korcula, Croatia

Croatia has secured its well-deserved place on the top of summer destination lists in large part due to the popularity of “Adriatic jewel” Dubrovnik. Yet lesser known are the numerous – and equally spectacular – small islands that dot its coast. One of the most notable is the island of Korcula, a favorite destination of […]
