There's awesome stuff in this country! Like this, my latest on Forbes.com
A primary appeal of this historic seaside inn is the absence of annoyance.

My latest on Forbes.com—Portland is a surprisingly cool town.
The just-opened hotel, housed in the former Portland Herald Press newspaper building, gets the nostalgia formula just right.

My latest on Forbes.com
The first motivation to visit is the region’s light, crisp, mineral-forward Chasselas wines. The second is the stunning beauty of the terraced landscape raising up from Lake Geneva.

My latest on Forbes.com
The resort is a grand, improbable wilderness destination designed to fuse history with forward-thinking ideals: luxurious safari-style tents in the bush and an experience that emulates the way the 19th century’s 1 percent spent their summers “roughing it” at Adirondack Great Camps.

My latest on Forbes.com
There is no greater reward than discovering a nation as it opens up to the outside world. That time is now for Myanmar, whose residents could not be happier to greet inquisitive travelers.

My latest on Forbes.com: a cool new way to relax on vacation
Meditation on vacation no longer requires going to a destination spa, silent retreat or monastic ashram. Now it’s part of a much more typical vacation, with high-end hotels offering programs that guests can dip into in between lounging on the beach and kicking back during cocktail hour.

In between jaunting around the world, I sometimes discover good things in New York. Like this hotel. Ian Schrager and Marriott got it right.
Ian Schrager's new collaboration with Marriott speaks to the next generation of travelers—who value the luxury of simplicity and the right combination of glamour and restraint.

My latest on Forbes.com
The prettiest town on the Bay of Fundy lives up to its billing as the Newport of the North.

My latest on Forbes.com
While the world is full of places that appeal to connoisseurs of chaos, there’s something nice about visiting a place where everything works. Always.

My latest on Forbes.com: Canada can be awesome.
The adventure resort is the ultimate playground, tucked into the base of the 5,000-foot Mount Stephens in the middle of the Great Bear Rainforest on Canada’s wild, rugged west coast.

My latest on Forbes.com—a North American gem
The property, on its own island, has all the big-resort amenities. But the real playground is outside.

Tulum will always be one of my favorite places—and summer is the time to go. Here's why. 
This beach town has an undeniable cool factor along with its sheer beauty and spiritual energy. It's getting crowded during winter season—which is why summer is the best time to visit. A sexy new hotel helps entice.
