Sandra Scott Travels: There Are No Flying Fish, But Myanmar Is A Great Place To Visit

Mandalay palaceRudyard Kipling wrote, “The Road to Mandalay where the flying fish play…” Kipling was never in Mandalay and there are no flying fish as it is not on the sea but it is located inland on the Irrawaddy River. It was the last home of the royal family of Myanmar. Air Asia now has a direct flight from Bangkok so we decided to revisit.

Sandra Scott Travels: Rise Above It All In Hong Kong

Hong Kong Park with skyscrapers in background.Hong Kong is often our entry city into Asia. It is a wonderful place to visit so we usually plan to spend three or more days there getting adjusted to the time difference. Hong Kong is comprised of Kowloon Peninsula and 100s of islands. Getting from the airport on Chek Lao Kok Island to the Conrad Hotel on Hong Kong Island was very smooth as it always is in HK.

Sandra Scott Travels: Molokai – A Great Place To Kick Back

SeacliffsIf I was going to move to Hawaii, which I am not considering, I would pick the island of Molokai. When John and I left the airport in our rental car we liked the sign that said, “Aloha, Slow Down this is Molokai. No windmills or cables.” They like to say that the island is a step into the 50s and they want it to stay that way. For some, especially the young people, it is just too quiet. For us, it was perfect.

Sandra Scott Travels: Don’t Feel Like A Cruise? Book an Un-Cruise Instead

Un-Cruise Safari ExplorerWhen John and I were in Hawaii we wanted to see as many of the islands as possible and we found the perfect way to do it on the Un-Cruise Safari Explorer. Un-Cruise allowed us to visit four islands and all the tours were included. It was a luxury cruise without the glitz. Shorts, swimsuits and T-shirts were the preferred attire.

Sandra Scott Travels: Vegas Offers A Look Into The World Of The Mob

the history of the mob in AmericaJohn and I visit Las Vegas frequently because we have family there. There is always something new and different to do – something other than gambling. This time we visited the new Mob Museum where the true story of the mob is revealed along with the myths and legends. The Mob Museum opened on Valentine’s Day 2012 in the very building where some of the Kefauver Committee hearings to investigate organized crime were held in the early 1950s.

Sandra Scott Travels: How Sweet It Is! Right In The Port City of Oswego

Some candy gemsJohn and I write a chocolate column, so when we are bouncing around the United States and the rest of the world we are always on the lookout for chocolate-based stories. We have enjoyed a $15 all-you-can-eat chocolate buffet in Hanoi, visited the Chocolate Museum in Bruges, a plantation in St. Lucia, and even a chocolate art studio in Prague. They were all great but sometimes we forget to check out chocolate places close to home. We recently discovered the “Man in the Moon Candies” chocolate store which is only a few miles from our home.

Sandra Scott Travels: Walk The Same Streets Walked By Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus PlazaSometimes we are very lucky when we book a hotel and that was the case with our hotel in Santo Domingo. The Hotel Atarazana is a boutique hotel that was once a private home but the best part was its location in the colonial center of Santa Domingo so it was a short walk to all the places we wanted to visit. I think it is amazing to walk the same streets walked by Christopher Columbus.

City of Fulton residents got their first peak at the proposed ALDI Food Store layout during the Common Council public hearing Tuesday as councilors approved a special permit to use the former Nestle’s site as a grocery store.
“Nestle’s is a great spot,” one resident said. “I would love to see the eyesore gone. Nestle’s isn’t going to reopen. We’ve got to get rid of it. When you come in to town you’re going to see a nice new grocery store, and that’s nothing but positive.”
