- Authentic travel (Economist)
Ex-guerrillas offer birdwatching, hiking and hearty campfire cuisine as part of Tierra Grata Ecotours in La Paz, a town near the border with Venezuela. Over a two-day hike along boggy mountain paths, Jhonni Giraldo, a former farc footsoldier, leads hardy tourists to Marquetalia, a hamlet.

- New Admirals Club ‘Service Center’ in Philadelphia
New: PHL Guest Services Center at Gate A19
You can visit the Guest Service Center at Gate A19 for help with ticketing and travel between 3:30 – 10 p.m. This space will also offer grab-and-go snacks, bottled water and coffee.

- Stanley Tucci on his first-ever first class flight and on how people dress for travel,
The way that people dress. I mean, everybody’s dressed like a nine year old. And you think, but you’re not nine years old! You’re a person. Put a shirt on, wear a pair of shoes.

You always got dressed up to travel. I still do. I’ll sometimes just wear a suit on a plane. I’ve become a little less severe as I’ve gotten older, but I will always have a jacket.
