Day trip near Marco Island

I'll be staying on Marco Island in Southwest Florida in a couple weeks. Although lounging around on the beach doing nothing is definitely a priority, I would like to find one outdoorsy day trip. Looking for something I can complete, including transportation to and from, in 10 hours or less. Could be kayaking, hiking or biking (I am not an experienced mountain biker or kayaker, but would be into trying anything basic, especially if rental equipment is easily obtained). [more inside]

Best/cheapest smartphone access in Israel

Traveling to Israel in May. What are my best options for using a smartphone while in-country without breaking the bank? I won't need a lot of data, but I'd like to be able to check email and consult Google Maps. I have an iPhone 6 on Verizon in case it makes sense to use that. Thanks!

Southern Florida beach town recommendations

Some friends and I are in the early planning stages of a long weekend trip to Florida, and I have this idea in my head of a nice condo on the beach, walking to restaurants in the evening, maybe a boardwalk to wander along. But it is looking like we are going to be flying into Ft. Lauderdale and that part of Florida seems to be mostly resorts and highways. [more inside]

Zen retreat in Japan

This summer I would like to do something interesting. I would like to go to a place in Japan or China or somewhere in the East to meditate and perhaps live a bit like how a monk lives. Zen fascinates me. And I think might be more inclined towards the Rinzai school but since I am a novice I prefer not to make sharp judgments about things I do not know. [more inside]

City for a long weekend getaway?

My wife and I have some friends willing to watch our kids and 50,000 Delta skymiles each. We'd like to spend a long, car free weekend in a city that is new to us. We want to have a hotel room from which we can walk to nice restaurants and fun or interesting attractions (we like good museums and parks, for example). We've been to Boston, D.C., San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, and New York. Can you suggest somewhere new in the U.S. or Canada that would be fun to visit?
