The Hike House, the Security Guard, and the Parrot Garden
This month’s Travel Post starts out in Sedona, Arizona, a city known for its spectacular views, outdoor activities, and plentiful restaurants and bars. Our writer offers some tips for narrowing down the choices if a quick getaway is all you have time for.
“The Forbidden City is no longer forbidden after centuries of being off limits to the masses.” Our writer explored some of the more modern aspects of Beijing.
Sometimes even a simple change (time of day, for example) can make a huge difference in the quality of your travel photos. This travel photographer shares a few tips from her many years working as a portrait photographer.
And finally, we end with a visit to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah, seen from the unique perspective of an older, solo, female traveler “traveling through North America to Mexico and beyond in my RV with my cat.”
Read these stories — and see the great photos that go with them — below.
