  • “Chairs on the ceiling? Whaling boats floating in the air? Conestoga wagons, Indian chief statues, and gallows… oh my!” These thoughts may course through the mind of a visitor to Bucks County, Pennsylvania’s Mercer Museum. Hardly your ordinary history museum, this six-story concrete castle acts as...

  • Most likely all you know of Washington is that it is home to vampires and werewolves, that is somewhere up north next to Canada, that is caught up in a never-ending torrential downpour.

  • “So, this is what she saw.” My sister’s voice broke the awed silence as I tore my gaze away from the beautiful, sun-filled canyon. I imagined my mother’s face, decades earlier, glowing as she reached the top of a hill, pausing to absorb beauty so magnificent it seemed to belong to Heaven and not...

  •  “The land of the rising sun” typifies Japan for its glorious sunrises and its humid summer weather; however, a more literal slogan would be “the land of infrequent sunrises,” because the sun is usually playing hide and seek behind the clouds, and you can’t always find it. Japan’s location in the...
