Michigan’s Bay Harbor Golf Club

I RECENTLY PLAYED GOLF in Northern Michigan for the first time. It certainly won’t be my last visit to the shores of Lake Michigan and the lovely Victorian towns around Little Traverse Bay, Lake Charlevoix and Walloon Lake (where Ernest Hemingway spent his first 22 summers). We stayed one night at the historic Stafford’s Perry Hotel in downtown Petoskey, overlooking Lake Michigan, and three nights at Boyne Highlands, a delightful family ski-golf resort with four impressive courses by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Arthur Hills. You’ll see it on lists of top destinations for golf buddy trips — and with good reason. The resort is part of the local Boyne Golf group: three resorts with 10 championship courses, three of which rank among the state’s top 10 public access tracks.

Why the Future of Business Travel Might Look Different

Global business travel is making its way back, even as the pandemic and other world events continue to challenge its return. In a recent poll from the Global Business Travel Association, more than four in five respondents (86 percent) from across the industry said they feel more optimistic than they did at the beginning of the year. Business travel bookings, the need to travel to do business and employee willingness to travel are all on the rise.

Photography, Galápagos Islands

LET ME SAY THIS UP FRONT: If you are fascinated by critters of all kinds, a trip to the Galápagos Islands will exceed your wildest dreams. There is no way to mentally prepare for your first close encounter with creatures that exhibit no fear or hostility. It’s almost like being invisible — but not really. They are aware of you. Some are curious, but most are more interested in their own daily affairs — feeding, resting, raising their young or attracting the opposite sex.
