It’s hard to believe that back in September 1864 Johannes Badrutt made a bet with his English summer guests that resulted into a 150-year-long history of inviting tourists from all over the world to the Swiss Alps.

Pack Your Bags for the New Emerald Waterways River Cruise in Europe

Aug 16, 2013  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico  |  1 Comment

I’ve always had this dream of living in a real-life musical. I’m Anne Hathaway in Les Misérables and every time someone speaks it’s wonderfully melodic; or I’m selling papers on the streets of New York and luckily the other Newsies know just how to make me feel better — through song.

Mar 21, 2012  |   Contributor: Steve Mirsky

I found that getting fully acquainted with Zermatt, Switzerland goes beyond taking your picture in front of the Matterhorn and doing some skiing or hiking.

An early-season dusting recently rolled through some of America’s higher elevations, and seeing a touch of white on the mountain landscapes has plenty of people yearning for the chairlifts to start spinning so they can get some turns in. Skiing has long been the favorite winter time getaway for the country’s distinguished families, but there’s a handful of hassles that can ruin a day on the slopes.
