During the Beer and Hymns sing-along at Tir Na Nog, the line couldn't come fast enough.

Travel in Europe: Italians: Don't know the language? No problem

posted: 08/24/2014 2:40 a.m. Discuss

I am terrible at foreign languages. Despite traveling to Europe four months a year, I can barely put a sentence together anywhere east or south of England. But with some creative communication, I manage just fine to write guidebooks, produce TV shows and simply enjoy Europe on vacation. But nowhere do I have more fun communicating than in Italy.

Consumer Travel: Airfare 'transparency' bill approved in House by stealth

posted: 08/24/2014 2:39 a.m. Discuss

The ironically named "Transparent Airfares Act of 2014" passed the House of Representatives on July 28. This misbegotten bill, which would actually make the costs of air travel less transparent, passed by voice vote, presumably in part to avoid embarrassing the self-proclaimed pro-consumer representatives who supported it.

Here's bad news for anyone who has ever used the expedited airport security lines without having applied for the program.

ARE WE THERE YET?: Norfork house stands as state's oldest log building

posted: 08/21/2014 1:52 a.m. Discuss

This is the same river route Lewis and Clark took 200 years ago, a 1,000-mile journey along the Columbia and Snake rivers and right up the musket of the American West.

Hiking, waterfalls, history fill itinerary

My seven-night cruise on the Legacy along the Columbia and Snake rivers during the first week of June began and ended in Portland, Ore. Here are snapshots from the trip:

TRAVEL IN EUROPE: Lisbon is like San Francisco with Old World aura

posted: 08/17/2014 2:11 a.m. Discuss

Portugal's capital city of Lisbon feels to me like Europe's San Francisco -- it has rattling trolleys, a famous suspension bridge, a heritage dominated by a horrific earthquake, and lots of fog. And like San Francisco, it's a charming mix of now and then.

CONSUMER TRAVEL: Tourist-targeting scams mainly follow 10 setups

posted: 08/17/2014 2:09 a.m. Discuss

A recent posting on Justtheflight.com warned travelers of 40 tourist scams prevalent around the world. Wow -- that's a long checklist. Fortunately, many of the 40 are "variations on a theme," and a comparable posting of 10 scams from Cheapflights.com is more realistic. Yes, none of the 10 or even the 40 is really new or innovative, but they bear repeating.
