India just blew away the competition at the World Travel Awards. I told you India was hot. The industry here has always been strong.

buddha silence

Could you be silent for five days? Many years ago at a Buddhist retreat, I tried it and I must say I hated it. With a passion.

la pedrera

Cool, hip Uruguay In Uruguay, life is always good. Especially in December, when their streets fill with surf boards and salty teens emerging from the water in the late afternoon. And of course, the Latinos know how to do it up. Most of them grab a Buenos Aires flight, hit the Punta del Este, for a high-end resort vacation. Or they head to Jose Ignacio where they see the same people they came to get away from. Thankfully, there’s an alternative, new breed of super-cool hotels that fall in line … More…
