Best Way to See Dublin, Ireland – Because I delve deeply into local culture during my travels, I tend to stay places for longer periods. As a result, I’ve never tried to visit a city during a long flight layover. Recently, however, I was flying back to the U.S. on Aer Lingus, the national airline of Ireland.

A Cruise for Non-Cruisers: Five Pleasant Surprises in Norway – Last year I was walking with a friend along the water in my hometown of San Francisco and I stopped mid-conversation, gobsmacked to see a towering behemoth of a ship docked near Pier 39. At 10 stories high and hundreds of feet long, it looked more like a horizontal skyscraper than a seaworthy vessel.
