Eating Japanese Rice On A Stick

Eating Japanese Rice On A Stick

Popsicles, lollipops, corndogs and, as I learned recently in Japan, rice are among the foods that are best served on a stick. Kiritanpo is a local dish found mainly in the Akita Prefecture. Like other Japanese foods, Kiritanpo is simple, traditional and not fussy — the harmony of its flavors and the warming process of making it turn it into an unexpected comfort food.

Cruising Through St. Kitts

Cruising Through St. Kitts

When I visited St. Kitts a couple years ago, the island was in the midst of successfully transferring from a sugar-based economy to one based on tourism. Looking at the island through the eyes of a cruise passenger, I could see that St. Kitts was perfectly poised to welcome the cruise traveler on a tight schedule.

Haiti’s Creative Spirit

Haiti’s Creative Spirit

Many Caribbean destinations have their signature appeal. Jamaica is powered by its thrilling music, St. Lucia by its scenic beauty and Trinidad by its celebratory Carnival. I can envision a time when Haiti’s tourism will have its own generator, the beauty of the painting and sculpture produced by Haiti’s artists.

Rosarito by Rod and Reel

Rosarito by Rod and Reel

Catch and release makes a lot of sense in some fishing circles. But I’ve always been of a different frame of mind: I like the idea of catching dinner. On a recent evening in Rosarito Beach, I enjoyed fresh ocean breezes and a beautiful sunset while catching enough fish to feed our family of eight.

Surf’s Up in Los Cabos

Surf’s Up in Los Cabos

Surf culture and Los Cabos are a perfect match. Not only are there great surf breaks, there’s also an over-the-top nightlife scene that supplies an adrenaline rush after the sun goes down.

Sailing Into Art on Oceania

Sailing Into Art on Oceania

When I signed on to teach art to Oceania cruisers, I really didn’t know what to expect. I had taught college studio art, but this would be a mixed bag of people at all sorts of levels, who might come for one session or all of them.
