TRAVEL TALES: FOODIE FINDS IN FRANCE: THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF ALPINE CHEESE DISHES
By Leyla Giray

Foodie Finds: The Wonderful World of Alpine Cheese Dishes.

Foodie Finds: The Wonderful World of Alpine Cheese Dishes.

If you’ve ever spent a day skiing in the Alps of France or Switzerland, you’ve probably sat with friends around a piping hot dish of fondue, a velvety mixture of melted cheeses with a bit of alcohol thrown in.

Rumor has it that fondue originated in Switzerland although the debate rages on. There’s more agreement on the origins of the fondue’s recipe: it first appeared in 1825 in Frenchman Brillat-Savarin’s Physiology of Taste, the gastronomic book classic.

Don’t be fooled by simplicity though, because fondue can be so much more than cheese.

Beware the Blowhole! A Fun Day at La Bufadora, Ensenada, Mexico

“Ole!” giggled a flock of small children as they were once again pelted by the spray from the world’s second largest natural blowhole.

La Bufadora, from the Spanish word “bufar” which means “snort,” is a must for any Ensenada itinerary. You can easily spend hours here enjoying a variety of activities.

About 20 miles south of Ensenada, the third largest city in Mexico’s Baja California, lies the famed natural site at the end of the Punta Banda peninsula. The drive itself is enough to attract visitors, a paved, winding road revealing panoramic cliff-top vistas of Ensenada Bay and Todos Santos Island.

Cruising the Southern Caribbean on Celebrity Summit

Even if you’re not one of the rich & famous, you will still be treated as a celebrity with Celebrity Cruises!

Years ago, the saying “only the newly wed and almost dead” took cruises, may have been valid. However, today, cruising has been discovered by many generations as an ideal vacation. Multi-generations can even enjoy the same cruise.

On the luxurious cruise ships of today, numerous activities go on simultaneously, something for everyone regardless of age. Just choose what interests you. Or you can just lie on the sundeck enjoying the fresh sea air and the pleasant sounds of the on-board singers and musicians. No matter what you do, even if nothing at all, you can be assured you will be treated as a celebrity. From your cabin steward, waiters, bar and pool and spa attendants to the cruise director, staff and officers, you are treated like royalty. “Your wish is my command” comes to mind. The staff and crew please you in every way possible.

When you visit India, whether for a day or a year, the first thing you have to do is shake the moths out of the way you think. Everything needs to be re-defined, and isn’t that actually a good thing? Sort of like cleaning out the basement? So when our small bus is rolling down the freeway from Delhi to Agra, on the first leg of what’s commonly called “The Golden Triangle”, we quickly re-define ‘freeway’. Freeway: a road where you can travel freely in any direction and fit into any space that’s free in that particular second.

The shriek goes up from the bus’s 22 passengers, definitely louder in the front half where occupants have a clearer view of the much, much larger bus that is about to hit us.
