Durham is a county of culture, history, and gorgeous landscapes. This small, stunning corner of North East England has everything you need from a British holiday. Stunning coastline, idyllic countryside, and a historic city that’s full of fascinating things to do. I spent just under a week exploring Durham – discovering the county’s cultural side as part of the #Durham19 Year of Culture. The trip combined a lot of my favourite things! Adventure and nature in the Dales, and along the Heritage Coast. I relaxed with a spa day, and at a gorgeous country manor hotel. I indulged with some amazing food. And, of course, there was a ton of culture to discover – both old and new. I’ve put all my discoveries together to help you plan the ultimate trip to the area! These are all the best things do to in the county of Durham… Where is County Durham – and Why Visit?How to Get There?Things to do in County Durham – the Three RegionsCulture … [Read more...] about A Cultural County

By JON MOOALLEM photo illustration by: DAVID BENJAMIN SHERRY The whale sighting happened right away, minutes into Day 1. Jon, Dave and I had just been dropped off on a remote Alaskan shoreline, an hour and a half by boat from the closest speck of a town. Jon was working as a sea-kayaking guide that summer in Glacier Bay National Park, and he had invited us up for a seven-day excursion during his week off. As the boat that delivered us vanished, the drone of its … [Read more...] about It Was Just a Kayaking Trip. Until It Upended Our Lives.

By CAITY WEAVER photographs by: Holly Andres Tell your fellow americans that you plan to cross the United States by train, and their reactions will range from amusement at your spellbinding eccentricity to naked horror that they, through some fatal social miscalculation, have become acquainted with a person who would plan to cross the United States by train. Depending how you slice it — time or money — there are either 61 or 960 immediate reasons not to travel by Amtrak trains from New York City to Los Angeles. Those are the extra hours and dollars, respectively, that you might reasonably expect to … [Read more...] about There Is No Reason to Cross the U.S. by Train. But I Did It Anyway.

One survey shows that even 41 percent of men will tear up at 10,000 feet. It has to do with the air pressure, dehydration, the stress of being herded like cattle, and the bloody marys we down to get through it all. I’d certainly done my fair share of crying on planes, as The New York Times’s first 52 Places Traveler, charged with the incredible and often body-punishing task of reporting on all those destinations while traveling solo around … [Read more...] about A Pop Culture Shock After the Trip of a Lifetime
One of the greatest benefits of living in the twenty-first century is the connection we have to the world beyond our doors. Thanks to air and sea travel, we’ve been able to traverse every corner of the globe and now cross continents in a matter of hours. Whilst this has led to a better connected global community and infinite discoveries, it has also deepened our footprint on areas that were previously untouched and the effects that tourism is having on the environment and climate change are colossal indeed. It’s no wonder, then, that the last couple of years has seen the rise of eco-tourism, with many finding ways to reduce the impact their adventuring has on the world around them. Though there are plenty of things we can do to help offset our travels, the responsibility falls to hotels and tour operators to clean up their acts and make significant changes to their environmental policies. Rather than wading through the sustainability ethos of every establishment you come … [Read more...] about How to offset your travels
