Costa Rica: Jungles & Rainforests Think about life in a jungle and you might imagine monkeys swinging from tree to tree, howling with something akin to joyful whoops... or flying over and into treetops high above the ground like those chattering and chirping parrots and colorfully plumed tropical birds do, seeing the world with a real bird’s eye view... Better yet, take a look at the smiling faces these intrepid zip-liners shared with us as they prepared to soar through Costa Rica’s rainforest canopy... again!

Family Fun along the Danube 17 members of the Cowan family rolled down the river with us this summer to celebrate 3 family birthdays... and according to 7-year-old Daniel, “I saw and learned extraordinary stuff on my river boat trip with my family.” (Extraordinary was one of his 3rd-grade vocabulary words!) “The crew was very friendly. They did magic tricks and made warm pretzels. In Vienna we had dinner at a palace. I got to put on a medieval helmet in a castle...”

The Royal Horseguards... We never knew that! You’d expect, with a name like The Royal Horseguards, that the historic hotel we stay at in London might be guarding some really big state secrets... and you’d be right! We chose this hotel based on its incredible location near just about everything you go to London to see... The London Eye, Westminster Abbey... but during our site visit this spring, we learned that... there is a mysterious door in the cellar that reputedly leads to a network of secret tunnels... the eighth floor was once the headquarters of the Secret Service, complete with sliding doors and bookcases to confuse visitors... and its One Twenty One Two restaurant is the Metropolitan Police’s former telephone number and a nod to nearby Scotland Yard... hmmm...
