Honeymoon in Provence and Cote d'Azur

Our two-and-a-half-week honeymoon in Provence and Cote d’Azur afforded us with the time to really relax and experience life in France. It was the perfect antidote to the extremely stressful time before our do-it-yourself wedding, when everything had to be done all at once just before the event, as well as the typical stresses of two very different families meeting for the first time.

Kilimanjaro: A Photographic Journey to the Roof of Africa by Michel Moushabeck and Hiltrud Schulz is the compelling story expressed largely through photographs of an impromptu journey to the top of Kilimanjaro. The trip was planned in only two months, making one feel that if the spirit moved them, they too could climb Africa’s highest peak.

Quebec City: a Romantic Escape

Quebec City is a romantic, beautiful old city with cobblestone streets and the Chateau Frontenac sitting like a castle next to a wide boardwalk overlooking the St. Laurent River.  Horse-drawn carriages ply streets lined with stone inns and houses with shuttered windows and flowerboxes.  Surrounded by high stone walls and ringed by cannons, the city has seen many battles; it was conquered by the British in the Seven Years' War, but successfully repelled American forces during the War of 1812.

Sikkim is the greenest state in India in more than one way. It is lush and vibrantly green due to its unique micro-climate, created by its location in the shadow of Mt. Kanchenjunga and between the Himalayas and the Bay of Bengal. Books have been written about the miniature biosphere created here, and the region’s multitude of different species. The cyclones of the Bay of Bengal reach up to the Himalayas and to Sikkim in particular; that, combined with the monsoon, means Sikkim receives more than its fair share of rain, but it is also ‘green’ in an eco-sense. For instance, plastic bags are banned so they don’t end up on roadsides and in rivers like in the rest of India. Shops use paper bags or newspaper to wrap things and shoppers can buy inexpensive re-usable bags in most places. In fact, Sikkim is definitely the cleanest state that I’ve been to in India.

Bhutan's Monasteries and Festivals

Bhutan really is unique in the world – its culture is one of the most well preserved in the world.  As a tourist, I felt I was almost stepping back in time.  Some of this may be due to the fact that television wasn’t allowed into the Buddhist kingdom until 1999, so, unlike most places; western culture has yet to take over. Another factor is that traditional Bhutanese dress is required in both school and the workplace, so one always sees the women wearing their Kira’s and the men in Goa’s.  Western style clothes are often worn by the youth on weekends, but the older folk tend to wear the Kira or Goa year-round.
