Time Traveler

I was a Jet Set Stewardess
November 27, 2014

In the 1960s, jetliners changed passenger travel forever. They also changed the lives of a few fortunate women. Go back to this golden age of commercial flight, when pilots looked like movie stars, passengers ate seven-course meals, and young, charming stewardesses became the glamorous faces of the industry.

Time Travel: Exploring Myanmar's Ancient Treasures

By Kathy M. Newbern & J.S. Fletcher
Face it: there are very few "new" places left in the world to discover. Here, cities like Mandalay and Yangon (formerly Rangoon) have modern conveniences, but head to Bagan and Inle Lake, for instance, and it's as if you're transported through time. Simply put, Myanmar mesmerized us.

A visit to Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, is a must for world travelers, and to stay near the ancient site allows you more exploration than most. A whopping 70 percent of visitors see the ruins only as day-trippers, which is a shame because that's not enough time to experience the magic of South America's most famous archaeological site.
Time Travel: Exploring Cambodia's Ancient Khmer Culture

By Deb Abraham
Cambodia, the ancient Khmer culture, a lost world, a modern tragedy -- we hardly know what to expect. Bunsak, our Cambodian representative from the Amansara meets us at the Siem Reap airport.
