heritage and honor at the museum of the african diaspora

In a vibrant section of downtown San Francisco lies The Museum of the African Diaspora. It’s an outpost of the Smithsonian Museum dedicated the art and culture of people of African descent worldwide. Did you know that? Did you also know that just a few steps away there’s a magnificent fountain dedicated to the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.? We’re embarrassed to say that we didn’t. Until a recent visit to the city by the bay, during which we paid a visit to both of these wonderful places.

true north at the new nordic museum in seattle

There’s a new museum in Seattle to celebrate the history of the Nordic people, particularly those who emigrated to the Pacific Northwest in the 19th and 20th centuries. What does that actually mean? We decided to investigate on a recent visit to Seattle. We’re happy to report that this museum is a must-see for everyone: a gorgeous space, a fascinating history lesson, and a celebration of the core values that can unite us all.

Two hours in Hong Kong: the best spots for a quick visit

We’ve all been there: on a business trip, not much down time, in a sophisticated beautiful city that we long to explore. What to do? We always ask our work colleagues and friends for recommendations, on the off chance that we have a precious hour or two to sneak out and experience at least a taste of what their city has to offer. Now we’re sharing those ideas with you – so that even if you have only 120 minutes or less, you can still have a meaningful immersion in the life of a great city.

Best Luxury Travel Destinations in the Month of November

Where will November take you? Where should it? You could visit a cosmopolitan city (we’re thinking Seoul, Cape Town, Hong Kong or Abu Dhabi). Or make a cultural pilgrimage to Mexico or Cambodia. Want something more remote and off the grid? Go north to see the Northern Lights. Or soak up some late-autumn sun in Southern Europe. Feeling the need for adrenaline-fueled adventures? Head for Iguazu Falls in Argentina. More in the mood for the beach? Ditch your shoes and set up shop in the Caribbean – after last year’s hurricanes, your favorite hotels and resorts are back and open for business. It’s all waiting for you. Let’s go!
