"Looks like you're going cruising," I asked the ladies sitting across from me in the airport lounge. With their carry-on bags piled between us, I couldn't help spotting the Viking River Cruise tags on the handles. "Your first time?" I asked, thinking about my own recent river cruise and feeling very wise and experienced. "How exciting! What a wonderful way to travel."

Picture the Blue Ridge Parkway as a crooked spine running through the Appalachian Mountains. Government stewardship of public lands is splashed across the map in confusing variety - a national park at either end, national forests, historic sites, monuments and state parks along its 469 miles.

Wending our way to the Old Chatham Sheepherding Company, we cross a creek, meander down a country road, then come to a farm with red barns, split-rail fences and flocks of sheep grazing in the green pastures.

Q: I just returned from a vacation in Ireland, with a short break in Paris. I flew American Airlines on the way there and British Airways home. Neither charged for my one checked bag. But I flew Aer Lingus from Dublin to Paris and was charged 50 euros each way (about $130 total) on top of a ticket that cost $300. I was not a happy camper. I know that low-cost carriers are charging bag fees, but I didn't know Aer Lingus was. Moral of the story: You really need to check baggage charges on all airlines when you travel.

Attention, California fourth-graders. If you want to make a model of a handsome, historic California building that was built for a simple purpose and produced entirely positive results, consider a lighthouse.

The air is hot and sultry, weighted with smoke and sea salt and the heady balm of pig fat. It's not exactly soup weather. It's the rainy season, July, when I'm in Zihuatanejo, which doesn't translate to any actual rain but rather a steamy, lazy heaviness that's boxed in by an unrelenting sun, with the Pacific Ocean in front and the Sierra Madre del Sur behind.

In eastern Washington, accessible by plane or a weekend road trip from Seattle past Mount Rainier, lies a picture-perfect getaway known as the Yakima Valley. Packed with authenticity and a cultural diversity that includes everything from Native American influences and cowboy heritage to a Mexican food scene you'd typically have to drive to a southern border state to find, the area has much to offer pet parents in search of vacation value.

The check-in queue for Southwest Airlines at Terminal 1 at San Francisco International Airport snaked beyond the restrooms and the elevator leading to baggage claim, clear past the entrance to the Air Train, before making a dogleg that stretched almost to the corridor leading to the International Terminal.

A quickening breeze off the Adriatic brings a spray of rain sweeping across the city's grand plaza, empty on this late July morning. A two-hour train ride away, the smaller Saint Mark's Square in Venice is filled with U.S. tourists, but I hear no American accents here, mostly the harsh Triestino dialect, a blend of Italian, Slovenian and German.

Most of us spend nearly the whole day with some sort of technology - in front of a computer, an app on our cell phones, watching the TV to unwind - and that might be why our minds and bodies crave time outdoors so badly that we find ourselves edgy, depressed, agitated. Just in general out of sorts. When you feel nature calling, answer it.

There’s something about s’mores, ghost stories and olive-hued canvas tents that tap into our deepest collective subconscious. Your childhood camping adventures may have involved a ripstop nylon, instant pop-up — or a hotel — but there wasn’t a soul who saw Wes Anderson’s recent “Moonrise Kingdom” and didn’t sigh with nostalgic delight over the Khaki Scouts’ olive drab, plaid-lined tents.
