In the spirit of packing light and keeping our eyes on the road, we're leaving the books at home and loading up on podcasts.
SERENGETI, Tanzania – If the rain comes, they will all start to drop. So they run. Some give birth as they run. Run for their lives.
HUE – Let me just say that I'm a pretty confident cook. Not this time. I spilled everywhere. I couldn't spread the batter. I couldn't lift the crepe without knotting it into a crumbled mess.
NANTUCKET – It isn't all beaches, hydrangeas, and girls in Lily Pulitzer shifts. For me, the faraway island is synonymous with the Atheneum, the beloved library.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Not sure what the official local specialty is, but the trip's culinary highlights include homemade brown sugar and cinnamon pop tarts eaten at breakfast at Ted's Bulletin.
KOH SAMUI, Thailand – While other travelers to paradise were having plastic surgery, James Sturz decided to carve the flesh of fruits instead.
HONG KONG – A photographer and a beekeeper connect creative types through simple DIY workshops and community events.
PALM SPRINGS – They created spin art on vintage vinyl, felted tiny rocks, and painted T-shirts while screaming (with joy, I think) for hours.
STOCKBRIDGE, Massachusetts – It was time explore some culture. Because it was raining and there was no laser tag emporium. So we headed to the Norman Rockwell Museum.
SHANGHAI, China – A young writer gets all dolled up for her fake Chinese wedding photo shoot. Groom not included.
