VENICE – I resolved not to leave for the entire 24-hour duration of my stay at the Aman Canal Grande Venice. I had an entire palazzo to myself for a few hours.
AMAGANSETT, New York – David Kamp splurges on a mid-week stay at The Reform Club Inn with his teenager before sending her off to camp. It's worth every penny.
Summer is travel-to-Italy season. What does that mean? You will meet a new pasta shape. You will yell at the GPS. And you'll wonder if you're in the right Monte. And that's just the beginning.
NEW ZEALAND – Dotted with vineyards, olive groves, and small farms selling fresh goat cheese and alpaca sweaters, Waiheke might just be heaven on earth. The robust red wines and spicy green olive oil bring to mind a mini-Tuscany — only with beaches.
NEGRIL, JAMAICA – A North American Indian-inspired compound in the middle of Negril? Enough said to get designer Geren Lockhart on the next plane to an island nation of the Greater Antilles.
WISCONSIN, USA – The Innkeeper's Tales continues with the saga of the masked bandits who insist on calling Camp Wandawega home. Gotta love a charming rodent.
WISCONSIN, USA – The fish at Wandawega Lake Resort are farsighted or kinky. Innkeeper, camp counselor, and occasional first-aid nurse Tereasa Surratt isn't sure which.
WISCONSIN, USA – Mug in hand, I’d trek a mile through the woods, coming full circle just in time to catch a card game or a freshly lit fire. I spent hours reading in a rocking chair, and more hours climbing creaky steps to explore the treehouse.
BAJA, MEXICO – The tropics, the calm, and the beach beckoned. But all she wanted was a jolt of energy.
TORONTO – The drink is a bonfire in my mouth. And I’m officially drunk. Not too drunk to enjoy every last drop, nor too tipsy to call it a night. And sober enough to commit it to memory.
