World Travel

  1. A Caribbean gem with a little European touch: St. Maarten-St. Martin


    My love affair with St. Maarten-St. Martin, a Caribbean island nestled in the heart of the Leeward Islands, began some 30 years ago. I made landfall there during a sailboat charter with the Moorings, a yacht charter company based in Clearwater.

    Despite its size — 37 square miles in area — the island of St. Maarten-St. Martin has more than 30 beaches. Among them: Mullet Bay and Cupecoy Bay in St. Maarten.
  2. Utah ski resorts offering backcountry-type opportunities



    Utah resorts still want skiers and snowboarders to come enjoy their groomed slopes and high-speed lifts this season, but they're also offering expanded options for people who want to get a taste of the backcountry without the risk of going alone.

    Alta, Utah, is among the locations offering packages for cat skiing, a form of guided backcountry skiing where skiers are transported up a mountain in a snow cat.
  3. A grand ole time in Nashville



    I've always wanted to have a minireunion in Nashville with my college girlfriends.
