To celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, my husband and I chose Amsterdam; a capital of romance with its cobbled streets, bouquets of blooms and rich culture to commemorate our “pearl nuptials”.

We stayed at the famed Hotel Pulitzer Amsterdam and in a stroke of pure serendipity discovered the iconic hotel was also celebrating its own milestone this year, marking its lege

In Japan or Nippon as the Japanese popularly call their country, broken objects are often repaired in Gold, a practice known as Kintsugi.  

As a philosophy, its flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, therefore celebrating its beauty rather than something to disguise.

It’s this approach combined with a constant “nod” reflecting old and new blended so seamlessly into Japanese modern life that makes “The Land of the Rising Sun” one of the most travel-worthy around

In Pursuit of Nirvana in Thailand

When wanderlust strikes, there’s only one cure: a departure from the everyday to discover something extraordinary.

It's hard to imagine that through most of its history, the country known as Thailand was called Siam until 1939 - just 80 years ago. Today it remains brimming with bucket-list-worthy experiences.  Traveling for work as a TV host for my show Travel Time with Linda, I get to experience many beautiful places, but Thailand is one I especially wish to experience over and over again.

Seeking out bucket-list destinations can inspire joy and fulfillment.


What is "fulfillment?" I consider experiencing transformational self-discovery and realizing your purpose in the world as fulfillment.
