Our first writer in this month’s Travel Post makes an annual trip with her sister that always includes wine tasting, hiking, and dining. This year, they decided to head to Baja California and the Wine Trail in Valle de Guadalupe.

A cave in France was found to contain paintings and carvings dating back 20,000 years. You can no longer visit the original cave, but thanks to modern technology (and approximately $66 million) a replica was built into the hillside where the original cave was found.
