    If river cruising is the new black, then Viking is the leading fashionista!
    on A Luxury Travel Blog on Jan. 9, 2015, 12:05 a.m.

    Ocean cruising is soooo last year, which is fine by me since I’ve never understood the appeal of endlessly popping Dramamine while bobbing around the high seas with nary a speck a land in sight, gorging on mediocre buffets, tedious dis/embarkement procedures, and reduced to watching third-rate Vegas wanna-be shows. Which is why I wasn’t […]

    The sun has disappeared behind the horizon and with it the oppressive heat that during the day dominates the Tatacoa Desert in Colombia. Take out chairs and wait for the spectacle to unfold.
