Electric-assist cycling in Provence

Perhaps you’ve wanted for a long time to see Provence, and have heard that the best way to do it is to go on a bicycle tour. But you’re afraid you’re too out of shape, or no longer have the stamina for daily rides through rolling hills and vineyards. Well, you’re out ...

Walking the EdgeWalk high on the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada

I leaned backwards on a catwalk 1,168 feet above downtown Toronto, with my arms spread wide like Leonardo DiCaprio on the prow of Titanic. Even though you couldn't pay me enough to skydive (fear of falling) or scuba dive (fear of suffocation), heights have never been among my phobias. I ...
