  • Apple wine and aerial favorites

    Mike Miller, Senior Voice Travel Correspondent|Aug 1, 2013

    Quick Quiz: Where is Sachsenhausen and what is Apple Wine? Well, to start with, as you probably guessed Sachsenhausen is in Germany. And, as you also may have opined, apple wine is wine made from apples instead of grapes. In the Rhine-Main region, vintners have been producing apple wine from local apples for over 250 years. A bit of history: During the Middle Ages, beer and wine were the beverages of choice. Then, in the middle of the 16th century, the Rhine-Main area went through a bit of...

  • Will one of these New Mexico sites become an Eighth Wonder of the World?

    Mike Miller, Senior Voice Travel Correspondent|Jul 1, 2013

    New Mexico sites an Eighth Wonder of the World? Years ago (make that at least a half century ago) when Marilyn and I were in our twenties and newly married we traveled with her parents to New Mexico. I’d been there before but that didn’t count. I was only a two-year-old at the time and after a year our family moved to Kansas. Obviously I had no memory of New Mexico, and the trip with Marilyn’s mom and dad was a happy eye-opener. In terms of travel attractions, New Mexico may well contain some...

    Mike Miller, Senior Voice Travel Correspondent|May 1, 2013

    Titanic will sail again Yep, you read that right. In the not-too-distant future a luxurious cruiseship Titanic may once again sail on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. Well, not the original Titanic, of course. That tragic and much-storied vessel remains on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, having sunk on her maiden voyage to New York after an iceberg opened a gaping hole in the ship’s hull. But you may be able to book passage on a new, modern, luxurious Titanic II s...

  • Yakutat Tern Festival a fantastic opportunity

    Mike Miller, Senior Voice Travel Correspondent|Apr 1, 2013

    In the course of magazine editing, newspaper reporting, book authoring, freelance writing and Web site publishing for the past 60-plus years I’ve had the pleasure to visit and write about many a splendid local celebration. These have included locales that varied from Kansas on the plains in our nation’s mid-section to the mountains of Colorado, the islands of Hawaii, the shores of California, Jolly Old England and (drum roll please…) funfests that have provided enduring grand memories in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau and Ketchikan. This month le...
