Destination Vacations

It’s cold. It’s February in Philadelphia, a city that earned the landmark accumulation of 71.6 inches of snow this week. Getting to work is a hassle or downright dangerous. Walking to the nearby store is daunting. You’ve eaten everything in your freezer and the kids don’t care about snowmen and sledding anymore. “Wanna get away?” Where would you go if you had the time and resources? Or are you up for challenging yourself to a bare-bones-budget adventure vacation? Ice hotel or beach-front view? We’ll talk with long-time travel writer, DON GEORGE, editor of Recce, and the Adventure Collection’s Web Editor in Chief. A pioneering travel journalist for more than two decades, Don was most recently the Global Travel Editor for Lonely Planet Publications. Prior to that, Don was Travel Editor at the San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle and then edited’s travel site, Wanderlust.
