Consider this your eight-points plan for a weekend upstate.
VIEQUES – Send me to an unspoiled island with beaches and blue water and nothing to do for days on end, and I will spend my vacation trying to prove otherwise.
HONG KONG – Do you know your dragon from your figure eight? A little bit of luck goes a long way around the islands.
NYC – You know how it goes in Manhattan. You start from the bottom and work your way up.
MARRAKECH – I almost cried when I walked into my room. It was a real-life equivalent of the Moroccan fantasy I had built up in my mind. It was a Berber jewel box, and I had the key.
BOSTON – A new exhibition at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts tells the story of how postcards took mailboxes by storm.
SCOTLAND – I have an Olympic appetite for oysters, dairy products, and whisky. No one told me that Scotland produced the holy trinity of foodstuffs.
NEW ORLEANS – Long after the plate was removed and long after the last bite of heart-thumping upside-down pineapple cake was licked clean from the spoon, I thought about those oysters.
NEW ORLEANS – The best days are the ones made up of characters and scenes. I'm just a bit player among the performers, a town of local celebrities.
Dear Fathom: I travel a lot for business and the food options are abominable. How do I keep from turning into a fluorescent orange cheese curl?
