Drifting on the Danube

posted: 02/19/2017 2:01 a.m. Discuss

VILSHOFEN, Germany -- Delayed at the airport in Nuremberg and thoroughly frazzled, we checked and re-checked our watches as time ticked by, with the Danube River and our Scenic River Cruises ship, the Pearl, nowhere to be seen.

Travel in Europe: Journal filled with notes is best travel souvenir

posted: 02/19/2017 2 a.m. Discuss

When I travel, I make it a habit to collect only one thing: memories. The most treasured keepsake of any trip I take is the journal I bring home, filled with descriptions and observations of the people I've met, the places I've seen, and the experiences I've had.

The fishing is fly

The legend "Stairway to Heaven" is carved into the steep steps that lead from the helicopter landing area on the tundra to the Ryabaga Camp on Russia's Ponoi River, one of the world's most celebrated Atlantic salmon fisheries. The scene as you descend the stairway is inspiring -- steep, birch-blanketed banks slant down to a wide ribbon of blue that bends out of view in the distance. The red roofs of the camp poke up from the valley below. This slice of heaven comes at a rather lofty price -- prime weeks can eclipse $15,000 per person, and that's before one has traveled to ­Murmansk. Yet, a large percentage of guests are return visitors, having trekked to this remote region of northwestern Russia's Kola Peninsula 20, 30, even 50 times.

Travel in Europe: 'Ugly tourists' can't appreciate travel's charms

I'm going to be brutally frank: Many Americans' trips to Europe suffer because they're treated like "ugly tourists." But those who are treated like ugly tourists are treated that way because they are ugly tourists. They aren't bad people, just ethnocentric (and there are plenty of tourists from other countries who also qualify as "ugly").
