Surprising Winter Park Florida: An art-filled, food-filled charming town by Neala McCarten
I loved Winter Park as soon as I saw its tree-lined streets, historic train station, shops and restaurants. But that wasn't the reason I visited this not-quite-suburb of Orlando. I went to see the Morse Museum with its
extensive collection of Tiffany art and found so much more to love in Winter Park.
As I boarded the plane at Havana's Jose Marti Airport to return to Tampa after a week-long stay in Cuba I felt pulled in two directions.
Part of me couldn't wait to sit down to go to the bathroom, run on a level sidewalk and breath something other than exhaust-filled air. But the other part wanted never to leave this enchanting island, where music and dance
are inextricably woven into the fabric of daily life. In Cuba the pace is unhurried and the people are as warm as the humid air.

Grytviken: A marvel of whale-slaughtering efficiency at its zenith between the two World Wars, Grytviken whaling station could process up to 25 whales, averaging 60 -70 feet long, in 24 hours.
Closed for nearly five decades, Antarctica's first whaling station is a rusting reminder of environmental irresponsibility...and a
haunting memorial to both hunter and hunted.
Iceland is a terrain of extreme contrasts; it holds an ethereal splendor in the dark wintery months and a beguiling expanse of intense beauty

With a wealth of activities that traverse this pristine land, Iceland beckons to the adventurous
When I stepped out of the car into the desert sand on a warm, still January afternoon, a feeling of quiet seemed to travel up my feet and through my body. Looking out over the flat foreground to the distant hills, the cactus
short and the brush scrubby, my view was interrupted only by huge prehistoric creatures. We were playing Hide and Seek with the art of Ricardo Breceda
My husband Gustavo slathers a thick layer of volcanic mud over my forearms and across my face with a paintbrush. With my upper body as his canvas, he daubs the ash-colored ooze like an artist decorating
his muse. Of course, he is fully aware that soon I'll be the one dabbling in the muck and he, too, will be relegated to a muddy fresco. Read more about this Excellent Costa Rica
