It's camping season! Here are a few places to camp along the water in Wisconsin:
Wisconsin's Best Camping at the Water’s Edge Bordered by two Great Lakes and containing over 11,100 square miles of lakes, Wisconsin is water lover’s dream. Even the state’s name is derived from a river: French explorers Marquette and Joliet mentioned the Meskousing, a river name from the

Photos of cherry blossoms in Japan, including Hiroshima, Fukuoka and Miyajima. Pretty good timing for my trip this year!
"But memories are time beings, too, like cherry blossoms or ginkgo leaves; for a while they are beautiful, and then they fade and die." Ruth Ozeki from A Tale for the Time Being While the weather may still have a nip in it and rains are likely, April is the best time to visit Japan to see the cherry

Hue, the Imperial City, a must-visit when traveling in Vietnam. Had a very cool tour there of the imperial tombs. 
Huế is pronounced "hway" with a sort of rising tone that may sound like someone asking for clarification: hway? Gentle and wide, the Perfume River winds its way to the sea from the nearby mountains, right through the heart of the city and past its former fortress and imperial palace. Modern Hue,

My new hiking guide: Best Hikes Near Milwaukee is now available. 47 fantastic hikes less than an hour from the city center.

Milwaukee as a hiking mecca? You better believe it. Thanks in part to great preservation and protection efforts over the years and thanks to some dramatic work in the Nature department (especially that done during the Wisconsin Glacial Episode of the last Ice Age), hiking in the Milwaukee area is

My new guidebook to canoeing and kayaking in Wisconsin came out last month. Paddling Wisconsin is now available in bookstores. Detailed information about 40 great paddle trips spread throughout Wisconsin.

There are 84,000 river miles and about 15,000 lakes in Wisconsin. So for paddle sport enthusiasts, Wisconsin is a dream. In researching, paddling, and writing Paddling Wisconsin, a FalconGuide I selected some of the best Wisconsin paddle destinations, providing maps and narrative and the tips you

Another quirky Japanese attraction: Robot Restaurant in Tokyo's Shinjuku. 
My review of the Robot Restaurant in Japan Growing up in the 80s, I was part of the generation whose first Japanese lesson was how to say thank you," brought to us by classic rock band Styx in an unexpected delightfully cheesy, sci-fi themed album. “Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto!” And with that

Great coffee from great people. The beans come from the owner's mountain village where he's brought the community together to keep a fair deal for them in the coffee market. His efforts have raised awareness even beyond Thailand. Single-origin coffee, with line drawings of the farmer on each bag. So that's the feel-good aspect of this place. The coffee itself is quite good, professionally prepared, and yet very reasonably priced. Plus there is space to plug in and work. I never miss this place when I am in Chiang Mai.

Some of the best Black Sea style pide you're going to find in Istanbul. Fantastic, and we went back twice in the same week after that first visit.

This is some amazing beer! While they are best known for their hoppy brews, I have to confess I also really love the porter and stout. Cool space to hang out and nice outdoor patio. (A great stop on the way to the airport, btw)
