She always envied people who love their jobs. Unlike those lucky souls, her various careers over the years (marketing, advertising, selling real estate, working in a retail store, owning a public relations firm, and selling snow cones in the largest water park in Puerto Rico, among others) were just means to an end – a way to earn money and have a comfortable lifestyle.

Monkeys, monkeys, everywhere!
During a recent visit to Kathmandu, I took my friend, Jane, to Pashupatinath Temple. Considered by Hindus to be one of the holiest sites in Nepal, Pashupainath is the location of the burning ghats where members of the Nepal Royal family were historically cremated and also one of seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Kathmandu Valley. I didn't tell her ahead of time, though, that it's also one of the best places in the city to see monkeys.

A terrifying trip into Mujib Canyon, Jordan
I sought the advice of friends on how to book a tour to Petra and Wadi Rum prior to traveling to Jordan. Everyone assured me that any hotel could make the necessary arrangements. As they had advised, my hotel in Amman put together a custom tour that included transport in a private car via the King's Highway to Petra, with stops at some of the most important tourist sites along the way.

Love at first bite in Dijon, France
Talk about a tease! Florence Bucciacchio, my host from the Dijon Tourism Office began my familiarization of Dijon with a visit to the Les Halles Market, but she wouldn't let me buy anything. "I've booked lunch for us at one of two Michelin Star restaurants in our city, and I don't want you to ruin your appetite!"

Photo: colorful wooden boats on Phewa Lake in Pokhara, Nepal
Pokhara is the second largest city in Nepal as well as the second most popular tourist destination in the country. I've visited Pokhara at least ten times over the years and it offers much for tourists, but for me the city's most impressive sight has always been the colorful wooden boats on Phewa Lake. The boats in the above photo are available to rent for the day, with or without a man to row. From the center of the lake, on days when skies are blue, boaters are treated to a spectacular view of the Annapurna Himalayas reflected into the blue-green waters.
