Just published on Dave's Travel Corner about my cruise on the Douro River of Portugal with +Viking River Cruises . There were treasures in every port!

Simply gorgeous! 
Is there a word to describe nostalgia for something you'll never see again? A beloved house that's been sold. A favorite store that's closed forever. A one-

See Puglia through the eyes of +Agata Mleczko 
After two months spent in this wonderful Italian region, I would like to share best pictures of Puglia with you. This is not the photo album presenting all best sites in Puglia. By no means! It is, however, my personal itinerary of winter spent there and best pictures I took. I am convinced that a picture is worth a thousand words so with no further hesitation here are 15 best pictures from Puglia. Small and friendly Towns It all started in Oria ...

Looks like a chilly, but amazing experience --visiting a glacier cave in Switzerland via +The World Is A Book 
See what the Swiss Alps have to offer. Mt Titlis and Engelberg in central Switzerland treats visitors to a a glacier cave, an igloo village and Europe's highest suspension bridge.

Very interesting academic perspectives of travel. First in a series by +Null & Full 
Everyone can travel…or can’t they? The current state of play seems to prove that literally everyone has enough skills to travel around the world and instruct others how to do this later on. I am pretty sure that you read at least once an article that was inaccurate, lousy and just irritating. In recent years, more and more poor travel writing contributed to the increasing number of misconceptions related to travel. Instead of complaining about th...

Mr. TWS and I had the pleasure of being at a signing ceremony at the Aviation Museum and Library at +San Francisco International Airport  celebrating the announcement of +Hyatt Hotels Grand Hyatt San Francisco Int'l Airport which is slated to open Spring 2019. SFO Airport Director John L. Martin (left) Hyatt Hotels Corp. President and CEO Mark Hoplamazian (right) are shown in the photo. It was also great to see some of the exhibits at the museum which is in the Int'l terminal, pre-security. Check it out sometime. #inahyattworld

I've got the ingredients in the house and I'll be giving this Pastel de Nata recipe a try. Maybe you'd like to do that, too. We got the recipe during a cooking demonstration by Chef Carlos Silva on the Viking Hemming. The photos of the delicious pastries at Pastéis de Belém in Lisbon were taken by Mary Penafiel Solio of The World Is A Book. (The bakery's recipe is a secret, however.) ‪#vikingcruises

Wondering what's been on +Christopher Allen 's mind? I was. Now I know.
Looking back at I Must Be Off! over the years, I see that I haven't written about my travels as much lately as I did, say, three years ago. I've been traveling, just not writing about it. It may have started with my being att...
