    Scottish immigrants were among the first to settle in the Northumberland Coast of Nova Scotia. Today, the shores of Northumberland have retained much of their heritage, reflected in the lives and small businesses of its residents. From Halifax to Pugwash, you will find sandy beaches, historical sites, farms and vineyards, fresh cuisine, and genuine hospitality.

    Here is a short list of things to see and do: Continue reading

    The glowing orange sun slowly rises over the Lower Rio Grande Valley as the music of songbirds greets me with the morning dew. I steady my camera and telephoto lens as a Green Jay, one of the specialty birds of the area, lands on a nearby branch. As I focus, his brilliant blue and black crown and yellow throat appears illuminated by the warm morning light. After a few great shots, I wait for the next example of nature’s splendor to wander into my view. Continue reading

    Whether you’re a fan of classic cars, Hemingway, or cigars, the island nation formerly taboo for U.S. tourists is gradually opening up. We’re talking, of course, about Cuba, the place where the Cold War nearly became hot.

    Technically, travel by U.S. citizens to Cuba is still restricted to persons visiting family and those with legitimate educational, business, or religious reasons to be there. Of course those reasons cover a multitude of possibilities from studying Spanish to meeting your husband’s grandmother.

    If you can establish that you have a close relative in Cuba, you can avoid most of the paperwork hassles by obtaining what is known as a General License that lets you travel as often as you want without restrictions on your itinerary or the gifts you bring to your hosts. Continue reading

    Italy is America’s favorite travel destination. An overwhelming 46 million people visited Italy in 2012. With Americans having the shortest vacation time in the Western world, it’s important to make the most of your time and money while on holiday, especially in Italy. If you can avoid Italy during the peak summer months, you will minimize the oppressive heat and crowds. My favorite times to visit are either Spring or Fall. If you are limited in time or can only travel during the peak summer months, why not travel smart?  I suggest the following tips to avoid crowds during any trip to Italy. 

    Reserve Ahead

    Avoid crowds, long lines and save time by making reservations to key sights. For some sights like Da Vinci’s Last Supper (Milan) or the incredible Borghese Gallery, reservations are compulsory. While the Uffizzi Gallery & Academia (Michealangelo’s David) do not require reservations, I strongly advise reservations (and well in advance). These top museums and must-see sights can easily be booked online or by phone. Visiting either museum without a reservation can be frustrating and waiting in line can be a huge waste of precious time. Reservations make sightseeing much more time efficient and less complicated. While booking online may be easier, often reserving by phone will giving you a wider option of availability. Continue reading
