Have You Seen These Two Overlooked Jewels in Perugia?

Located inside the 13th century church San Francesco delle Donne, the Laboratorio Giuditta Brozzetti would be worth visiting merely for its architectural resplendence and back-story: it is said the spot for the church was chosen because St. Francis of Assisi preached there, and eventually, the church was passed on to Benedictine sisters and became a convent (hence 'Delle Donne,' of the women).

For the second time in 10 months, I vacationed to a hot, sunny, gorgeous place only to return to the dead of winter, pasty pale. My, how times have changed. When it comes down to it, you can buy 'tan in a can' or get a spray tan any time, but you can't buy time with your family.

Vacationing, for me, is about the destination. It's a place you go, where you can put your feet up for a few days or weeks. Travelling, on the other hand, is about the journey. It often means setting off without a plan and the ability to enjoy the unexpected - like going three weeks without washing your clothes. When you decide to travel, you pack up your life and take it on the road with you.

Start with a bottle of Abita beer and sophisticated jazz at the Spotted Cat Music Club.

Fast-forward almost 20 years and my husband and I recently had the opportunity to circumnavigate Cuba aboard the Louis Cristal--a re-purposed Finnish ferry (how very socialist!) now operating as Cuba Cruise.

Cruising is a very popular trend and it's getting more competitive within the industry all the time, especially in the mass-market area of giant ships. Therefore, empty cabins mean reduced revenue, and that's not something to make cruise operators smile; maximizing the dollar, pound, euro, or whatever currency you have, is their priority.
