Canadians and Europeans have always been able to travel freely to Cuba. US travel restrictions are easing on Cuba and commercial flights between the two countries are slated to start by fall of 2016. Lynn Rosen continues her travels to Havana on a "People to People" trip following an itinerary packed with Cuban people, their history and rich culture.

 

When engineers were building a highway along California's coast, the outlook for extending the road along one far northern California section was simply too daunting. The challenges included the King Range mountains that rise steeply along the coast coupled with the area's proximity to the San Andreas Fault. Instead, the highway was relocated inland. The section it skirts has become known as the Lost Coast.

 

Oyster fishing...is that the term?...is done here the old-fashioned way. Two guys go out in a wooden skiff that they probably built themselves. One drives, the other stands on the side with long, wooden tongs that look like giant chopsticks with a metal basket on the end. He dips the basket into the water, wiggles it in the oyster bed to loosen the oysters, grabs a batch, swings it up and across to a shelf at the bow of the boat.

Real Skifi Skis Downtown Stockholm Minus Snow

 

 
 



 

Nestled in a mountain valley, inland from the Big Sur coast in a remote part of the Ventana Wilderness, Tassajara has been long known as a place for self-discovery, healing and an escape from the stresses of everyday life.

 

The Finnish skiing collective Real Skifi, a ski + video outfit, has been dubbed as one of the sport's true innovators. In video Episode 15, below, the group visits a snow-free Stockholm, Sweden. This forces the skiers to be more creative than ever.
