20180110_Hawaii1

Last year, my husband and I made everyone we know jealous by announcing that we were moving to Hawaii. The punchline is that we only moved there for a month. Many of us assume that travel falls into a couple of categories: a week of vacation time or a quit-your-job-and-travel-the-world adventure, a trend that’s increasingly […]

The first thing that pops into your mind when thinking about Israel probably isn’t hiking, camping, paddleboarding, biking, snorkeling, or even delicious food.

Everglades National Park.

The Everglades are genuinely one-of-a-kind. Only a few thousand years old, this singular wetland on the toe of Florida historically saw rainfall and overflow from Lake Okeechobee send a slow-moving sheet of water to Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico (and, to a lesser extent, the Atlantic) through vast marshes of sawgrass—the famous “river […]

It’s closing in on noon, and the day couldn’t be more perfect. The morning started out in a cool, mist-covered shroud, but now the sun is shining bright, trickling down as the pine-needled carpeted trail gently meanders uphill, past peeling madronas draped with Spanish moss.
