Tune up and start slowly after a long winter off the roads
It’s been a long winter, the sun is out, and your thoughts turn to cycling with your buddies (you don’t want to be embarrassed about your performance), maybe a summer cycling adventure you have been planning, or maybe that century ride “personal best”.

Authentic Hawaii beckons just beyond Honolulu’s tiki glare
There’s irony afoot in Hawaii, except don’t look for it in the tiki bars. It lies in the popular perception of Oahu as the “touristy” island. But the reality is as different as Five-O and Hang 10. Outside Honolulu, residents of Oahu have actively resisted turning over too much of their home to outsiders.

EARLY WINTER ON THE PASSO DELLO STELVIO
As far as famous climbs go, there are few, if any, that can claim spots higher in the pantheon of legendary climbs than the Passo dello Stelvio. It is synonymous with all that is great about the mountains in most people’s minds…and when it comes to switchbacks, there’s nothing quite as magical as the 48 numbered tornante heading up the climb’s northern face.

Traveling Croatia

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Croatia is a small country with long history and lots of castles
Construction and development of manors and castles on the territory of Croatia can be followed with certainty in the last two millennium – from Roman villa rustics and palaces (like Diocletian’s palace), to medieval castles (burgs), renaissance villas-summer houses in Dubrovnik and Dalmatia, to baroque and historicist manors of Northern Croatia, and town villas and palaces in most bigger Croatian towns.

A road trip through Alberta’s David Thompson Trail.
Southern Alberta’s east-west Hwy. 11 takes its nickname from legen-dary English cartographer and fur trader David Thompson (1770-1857), who surveyed nearly four million square kilometers of North America for the Hudson’s Bay Company and the North West Company. Today’s voyageurs-by-car will discover vintage trains, trading posts and trail rides along this more laid-back alternative to the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy. 1).
