In our May/June issue
We begin this issue's feature article lineup with an introduction to Portugal’s wine and cuisine holidays, growing in popularity and creativity. To complement our first story, we offer 10 tips for a memorable wine tasting prepared by a world renowned wine specialist. Then we learn a few tricks of the eye and camera to make your African wildlife photography more enviable than the point and shoot images predictably expected. We ask the provocative question, “Why Should I Speak Your Language?” as we consider how to get the most out of our travels, and we spotlight five of the best whale watching regions around the globe. We end our travels in Berlin, the German capital, with a spotlight on the outdoor historic and contemporary art, sculpture and colossal monuments all accessible on foot, at your own pace, and free!
