Gone Glamping

Take a little trip with us to a dreamy forest on the edge of Ithaca’s Buttermilk Falls State Park.  This is the home of Firelight Camps, a new glamping destination by Robert and Emma Frisch.  The camp has four luxury tents but that number will more than double next season.  Upon…

Postcards from Positano

Is there anywhere more romantic in the world than Positano, Italy? It’s like stepping into a dream, only to realize it’s not a dream at all. It’s real. This was my fourth time to the Amalfi Coast but the first time I’ve ever been during the final week of the season.  Wow,…

I’ve decided that sunrises are infinitely better than sleep.  And a sunrise out on the open ocean, with the smell of chum and the sound of lines being dropped into the water is about as good as it gets.  That’s how I spent one morning in Kauai, Hawaii sailing the deep…
