Time Traveler

I was a Jet Set Stewardess

In the 1960s, jetliners changed passenger travel forever. They also changed the lives of a few fortunate women.

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.

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.
