Travel lifestyle brand Exploring Wine Regions debuted with its first title, Exploring Wine Regions: Argentina. Between the covers of the 11-book series, author Michael C. Higgins, Ph.D., offers a rich, insider compendium designed to lead readers and travelers on an informed journey through the most stunning wine regions on the planet. The founder and former publisher of Flying Adventures magazine for the owners and passengers of private aircraft, Higgins spent multiple harvest seasons in Argentina, forming relationships with oenologists, sommeliers and wine insiders that included 107 winemakers.
Along the way, Higgins acquired a deep knowledge of the Mendoza, Salta and Patagonia wine regions and their vineyards and individual terroirs, along with the culinary culture and wine production methods employed in each region. The beautifully produced, coffee-table series, published by the International Exploration Society, will be available at venues including Barnes & Noble, Target and Amazon, as well as at wine shops and major booksellers. Other areas planned for the series include California, Italy, France, Spain, Chile, Portugal, Germany, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
IMAGINE SETTING SAIL IN AN EXOTIC, far-flung destination, just you and your family or group of friends aboard a private yacht. The sun warms the deck, a soft breeze dances off the water, and an über-attentive crew caters to your every whim while the personal chef whips up the finest of the local cuisine with all of your culinary preferences top of mind. All the while, the captain navigates the yacht into secluded coves; to pristine, seemingly undiscovered beaches; or even to the hottest spots along the coast for a night out on the town.

My husband, friends and I visited Parkway Bakery & Tavern on a recent trip to New Orleans. The restaurant is one of the most well-known for the city’s signature sandwich, the po’ boy. The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, so we arrived close to when it opened and braved the already-long line.

WELCOME TO THE EIGHTH ANNUAL Leisure Lifestyle Issue, celebrating the best in leisure travel. This year is a bit different because many of us haven’t traveled as we have in the past, but instead of writing about what we’ve missed in 2020, I’m looking forward to what will be possible in the rest of the year and beyond.

WHAT A YEAR ... AND IT’S ONLY JUNE (or already June, depending on how you look at it). “Leisure lifestyle” may seem like an oxymoron in 2020, but as an optimist and travel enthusiast, I’m still determined to live the rest of this year to the fullest (or as full as possible, given the ongoing COVID-19 situation) — with travel at the forefront — and there’s no better way to do that than with a strictly leisure vacation.
