When you arrive in the heart of old Istanbul (the area that the locals call ‘Sultanahmet’) you’ll notice that it’s on a peninsula – the sea surrounds it on three sides.

Six good reasons to take a family vacation.

Posted on: 20 March, 2005

Author: Jolana Klobouk

When I was young, family vacations with my parents consisted of driving for a week from place to place in a hot stifling car. My parents had the knack of picking the hottest week of the summer to do so. In spite of that, we still had fun, managed to find interesting sites to explore and those are the memories that I still have. I discovered the joy of travel to far reaching destinations on my own by the time I turned 18. Jumping on a plane and heading off to Brazil, Europe or cruising the Caribbean, has turned into...

Author: Marc A. De Jong

Sweden is one of the most affordable travel destinations in Western Europe. This statement would have raised some eyebrows a few years back, but it has become reality. So why not go to Stockholm this year? Leaders from both continents may have different opinions about world politics, but US travelers love Europe, just like Europeans love to see the US.
