Visiting the Alnwick Garden? (Don’t) pick your poison

Visiting the Alnwick Garden? (Don’t) pick your poison
Written by Carson Martin on 2015-07-30


“Don’t touch,” says Bridget the guide, as we prepare to enter the locked gates of the Poison Garden. “Don’t smell.” Don’t worry: I had seen the skull and crossbones on the black wrought-iron gate, right next to the sign proclaiming “These Plants Can Kill,” and I plan to give them a wide berth. Bridget tells us that no one has actually died from visiting the Alnwick Garden’s...(Read More)

The smartest route to Pittsburgh: The one with no shortcuts

The smartest route to Pittsburgh: The one with no shortcuts
Written by Carson Martin on 2015-07-22


“Yes, Pittsburgh,” I was forced to say after telling people where we were heading on a family road trip. Our fancy friends who think a vacation must involve Maine or Martha’s Vineyard, and who think the word “summer” is a verb, found our destination to be bizarre, as if we’d announced we had decided as a family to learn how to handle snakes and speak in tongues. The bronze sculpture...(Read More)

There’s safety in zippers: My top picks for foiling pickpockets

There’s safety in zippers: My top picks for foiling pickpockets
Written by Carson Martin on 2015-07-06


Little things sometimes make a big difference when it comes to travel safety. Like a strategically placed zipper. Consider what happened to Aaron McHugh, who was recently exploring Glasgow, Scotland, after the last leg of a sea kayaking trip with his brother. “We were not familiar with where sketchy parts of the city might be,” he remembers. But halfway through a 14-mile, self-guided tour, the...(Read More)

You’re going where? Kalamazoo is tired of your Creedence Clearwater jokes

You’re going where? Kalamazoo is tired of your Creedence Clearwater jokes
Written by Carson Martin on 2015-06-27


Every spring, serious scholars and amateur historians flock from all over the country to attend the annual International Congress on Medieval Studies, the largest event of its kind, held at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.

Worried about MERS in South Korea? Visitors can (mostly) breathe easy.
Written by Carson Martin on 2015-06-23


The infectious disease du jour is Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), a viral respiratory illness that’s leaving some travelers hyperventilating about their vacation plans. For now, the month-old outbreak — the largest recorded outside the Middle East — is confined to South Korean health-care facilities, which aren’t exactly popular summer destinations for Americans. But, as usual,...(Read More)

Oh brothers, where art thou? A thriving oasis in Australia’s outback

Oh brothers, where art thou? A thriving oasis in Australia’s outback
Written by Carson Martin on 2015-06-19


Setting out early, fully caffeinated in anticipation of the quiet and empty road before us, we skirt around the suburbs of Perth, get on the Great Northern Highway and leave the city behind. Bush land and small farms line the road, punctuated with the occasional turnoff to some isolated town. There is little to look at except the trucks trundling down to Perth, yet it’s essential to remain attentive,...(Read More)
