Wine, Penguins and Natural Beauty in Chile

By Greg Aragon Chile is one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth. Located on the eastern coast of South America, the country may look small and unassuming but as I recently learned, it has everything a discerning traveler could want.

Shopping the Fair for Food and Much More

I heard a strange growling sound as I left the shopping district at the Los Angeles County Fair. At first I thought it was my stomach calling for a smoked rib sandwich or a mountain of onion rings. But when the roar erupted again, I knew it was something much bigger than me; something from…

A Summer Night at a Los Angeles Dodger Game

There is something special about sharing a summer night with 50,000 enthusiastic people at a Los Angeles Dodger game.
