The Las Vegas Richard Petty Ride Along Experience

Want a ride in one of these?

As an adult, I don’t have a “need for speed.” I’m not a NASCAR fan. But I was looking for something to do outside the usual Las Vegas Strip tourist activities. The Las Vegas Richard Petty Ride Along Experience —where guests ride shotgun in a stockcar driven by a professional for three laps around the track—seemed like just the ticket.

On the Trail of Malta’s Ancient Ruins

An altar at the Tarxien Temples.

Although many people head to Malta for sun, sea and sand, there is a significant trail of Neolithic ruins across the little archipelago of islands. The provenance of Malta’s spectacular Neolithic and Bronze Age sites at Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, Tarxien, Hagar Qim, Mnajdra and Ta’ hagrat, plus the ruins at Ggantija on Gozo, have been obscured over the millennia. It’s possible that they were built between 5,000 AD and 2,500 BC to honor an unknown goddess of fertility and while of acute historical importance, some of the sites themselves are not well interpreted – and indeed were not well tended until the last 20 years.

Uruguay: One of South America’s Best Coastal Road Trips

Road trip Uruguay

With the exception of Motorcycles Diaries, most travelers don’t associate South America as a place you go on road trips. Uruguay is different, however, and there is a feeling of freedom that comes with cruising down the coast on entirely your own agenda. Add in the fact that that there aren’t any freeways and you can cross the country in six hours, and Uruguay sits high on the list of the continent’s best coastal road trips.

Austin for Foodies

Austin knows how to make BBQ.

Austin has gained a reputation as an alternative culture oasis in the middle of conservative Texas. They push the “Keep Austin Weird” motto, striving for uniqueness rather than homogenization. And food is increasingly part of that eclectic funk. The city is moving beyond staples like barbeque and taco stands (though, to be sure, there’s plenty of excellent barbeque and tacos to be had in Austin) and incorporating locally-sourced meat and produce in edgy New American cooking – often prepared in a cramped food truck.

Hanoi Street Food Walking Tour

First on the menu, after Thao handed around some fresh lychees, was the Bánh Mi – a crispy French-style baguette with a tasty, zesty filling of pork, coriander, chilli and – I think – pickled carrots. It’s a great snack-sized introduction, served direct from one of the local carts set up on this (and many other) corners in Hanoi.
