Bode Museum, Berlin

On our next stop on our healthy days world tour, we’re visiting the famously historic city of Berlin. A little over two decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, this German city continues to repair itself, rebuilding a culture that had largely withered as a result of political strife during the mid-20th century, as well as its dark past…

tree camping

Camping on the ground was so last year… and the thousands of years before then. The latest camping style that’s all the rage? Tree camping. Although there’s not much else to say about what it is (it’s literally camping in a tree), tree camping can be a fun and unique way to change up your usual travel experience this summer.…

Tulip Garden

To many, a plot of land is more than an area of dirt and grass—it’s a blank canvas that holds endless opportunities for creating beautiful gardens and landscapes. But in addition to being something aesthetically pleasing, gardens also can be important extensions of a country’s culture; styles, designs, and elements used are often unique to each, and there’s a lot…

festival

For decades, music lovers around the world have been traveling to their favorite music festivals.

While some will say they miss the days when traveling to a new city meant exploring the unknown, learning from your own mistakes (and not those of others), and discovering lesser known treasures, we have to…

For school-aged kids, summer is easily the best time of the year; in their eyes, “summer” is synonymous with “three-month long vacation.” For parents, however, summer is a long stretch of time during which they need to keep their kids entertained. Sure, there are camps to help with this, but that’s only eight weeks long at most—so what’s a parent…

The Dead Sea

For the next stop on our healthy travel tour, we’re heading to one of the most diverse, historic, and religious cities: Jerusalem. The “Holy City” is the place where the three main western religions (Christianity, Judaism, and Islam) converge—and the influences of each can be found throughout the city. Between ancient temples, churches, and other religious sites, it’s no wonder…

peanut allergy

Traveling with a food allergy can be a nightmare, especially if your kryptonite is something as prevalent as peanuts or tree nuts. Although it can be fairly easy to find meals that don’t list any type of nut as an ingredient when traveling, packing healthy snacks might pose a different issue. Why?
