When it comes to adventure travel the destination should be as adventurous as the activities planned. Eilat, Israel is a beautiful city that our tour guide rightly referred to as the “Las Vegas of Israel” with all the lights and beautiful hotels and highlights, but without all the gambling. After travelling through the dusty Negev desert, the last thing I was expecting was to end up in a city of luscious beautiful landscape that sits right on the edge of the Red Sea. We had been told to ride the entire one hour boat trip around the city and then just like in Rome hop on or hop off where we needed to go. After riding the bus for two days, I’m still not sure if it is best to stand or sit. Inside it can be hot and stuffy. The seats offer a place to sit, but comfort was never part of their design specs. Handholds were never considered in the basic design for standees, however. Standing gets you fresh air, which can be a relief, but you end up stumbling around. The best place to sit is in the stern (about six seats) or the bow (again, about six seats). Whether you are boating through the canals or eating beside the Grand Canal (main street), it’s just plain interesting to watch the traffic.

When I was in the Boundary Waters in early June, 2003, my travel companion and I saw only 2 other boats and always had our choice of campsites. This time around, in August, 2009, we saw other people every day and sometimes the first sites we looked at were occupied.

Africa was well represented this year. No. 9 Singita Kruger National Park, which consists of two contemporary retreats, Sweni Lodge and Lebombo Lodge, is set amid 33,000 acres of South African wilderness. On the other end of the spectrum, No. 57 the Silo, in Cape Town, represents a sophisticated sense of city life, and is directly adjacent to Zeitz MOCAA — the Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. Our daughter adjusted immediately to our holiday life-style travel insurance and seemed to enjoy all of the new surroundings, but the problem we found travelling in Vietnam with our baby was quite unexpected. Everyone tried to touch our baby. Smack, pinch, grab or rub – even when I had her pram covered with a fitted mosquito net to try to avoid this from happening, they would reach under it, or at least try to (Usually after we had walked past, so that we wouldn’t notice). I sometimes pushed peoples arms away from her.

When the same destinations appearing again and again in your social media feed—coworkers headed to Tulum for a break from the cold? Friends posting selfies from the Blue Lagoon in Iceland?—you might have discovered a travel trend. Travel + Leisure’s writers and editors pay close attention not only to the latest in popular destinations, but also to industry-wide trends like the growth of peer-to-peer rental services (such as Airbnb), the resumption of commercial flights between Cuba and the United States, or the shockingly high rates of unused paid time off for millennial workers. Learn about up-and-coming trends for consumers and for the industry. I’m trying to learn as much as I can about Nepal and Nepalese cultures before I go.
