This month TPM features four stories of diverse destinations. We’re headed to European Christmas Markets, Miami, Abu Dhabi, and Mexico City.
An enchanted holiday spirit is alive in European Christmas Markets, but Cristal Cook tells us about a slightly scary, and a bit macabre tradition. His name is Krampus. Cristal’s story and photos feature the strange, but traditional holiday character meant to encourage good behavior in children.
Susan Brauer shows us how to have a budget-friendly holiday on Miami’s luxurious and pricey South Beach. Her tips range from no-cost to $20. She’s curated breakfast, lunch with an ocean-view, an art and design museum, sculpture park, cycling, and ship spotting, all under $20.
Long before drones and GoPro cameras gave us aerial views of the globe, birds of prey combed miles of desert in search of food for the nomadic Bedouin people. Audra Brianne’s fascinating story of a falcon hospital and spa in Abu Dhabi shares all the details about these treasured bird’s lives.
There’s an immense blue-green sculpture of Quetzalcoatl towering over the entrance and grounds of Quetzalcoatl’s Nest residential community. Peg Hess shares her experience of this enchanted vacation rental in Mexico City. She urges you, “Don’t wait, come now and be blown away by Quetzalcoatl’s Nest.”
See these stories and their photos below.
Till next time,
