Explore Arizona, California, Hawaii, and Ecuador with our travel writers this month. Each is sharing a unique experience through words and photos. We’ll take a tour of Nature’s most amazing sculptures, eat meat with a barbarian (vegans be warned), taste wine in a Persian garden, and rejuvenate like Hawaiian royalty.
February opens with Kim Jackson’s well-researched story about Arizona canyon tours. His photos show the astounding sculptures Mother Nature has created near Page Arizona. Kim shares the beautiful landscape and culture of the area plus tips on where to book these backcountry trips.
Dinner with a Barbarian
Bob Herkes’ story takes us to Ecuador and a meat-lovers Nirvana. “I can hear the platter sizzling as it leaves the kitchen and approaches our table,” Bob tells us. You will smell the aroma of the brochette skewers while reading about his Andean dinner.
Recharge in Hawaii
Connie Werner Reichert takes us to a happy, healing place in Honolulu. The fabulous SpaHalekulani is an oasis for weary travelers, bridal parties, moms, dads, or anyone seeking to recharge and rejuvenate with traditional massage and body treatments using Hawaiian oils, plants, and hospitality.
Wine in a Persian garden
Angella Arndt found a Persian gem in Napa Valley California. Darioush Winery’s architecture was designed to resemble the ruins of Persepolis in ancient Persia, an homage to founder, Darioush Khaledi’s heritage. You’ll book a flight to California after reading about Darioush.
