Lisbon is a city rich in culture, but also in food and drink. Following our trip, we rounded up the top must-try tastes that we encountered during our stay. Do like the Portuguese and sample a bit of all during your travels, or pick up a few and soak up the European flavors right at home.
With dramatic cliffs that hug the Atlantic coastline, Portugal constitutes the southwestern most tip of Europe. A prime position for sunset viewing, for sure, but also a sliver of land that offers rich culture (and equally rich cuisine), stunning scenery, genuinely nice people and equally important, extreme value.
Every other year, come April, we trek the three hours to Cambridge, Ontario, where we hole up in the deliciously indulgent Langdon Hall Country Hotel and Spa for just one night. Our excuse for the excess? Anniversary. Pass the champs, please.
No island hopping here, we chose Maui for an eight-day excursion and took our time traveling the island. We spent time in Wailea, Hana and Lahaina and appreciated each for surprisingly different reasons. Find out which we wish we'd stayed at longer, and what can't-miss stops you need to include on your own visit.
A 90-minute flight away, New York holds all the glamour and grime that you expect of a mega metropolis.

In 72 hours, we did our best to fit in a bit of everything. It worked.
