As a veteran travel journalist and author, I am a history maven and a locaphile. Just like you, I seek connections to people whose lifestyles and cultures are different than my own. As the activist, Miriam Beard, wrote: “Travel is more than the seeing of sights . . . it is a change . . . deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” (More here about Karen Misuraca, a content producer, influence peddler and vortex of cultural travel, based in California’s Sonoma Valley.)

What have YOU been up to? Do let us know when you come across a great tour company or enjoy a cultural experience on your own. We would love to share your recommendations with our readers; and, we’re always happy to answer questions and respond to your comments and suggestions.
