Sonoma’s Jordan Winery is the first to open up to the public, but don’t expect to sip a Chardonnay on site yet. From the highest lookout on Jordan Winery’s 1,200-acre estate—the Jordan Vista Point—vineyards surrender to successive mountain ranges through the open spaces beyond the property, beyond Alexander Valley, to other wine regions in the far distance. After weeks of confinement to close quarters, taking in the stunning panorama will be a huge pleasure. Jordan is about to offer the experience again—probably the first winery in Sonoma to invite visitors back, in their case to the spectacular ranch surrounding the much-loved and photographed château. Starting Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 23, and continuing on Sundays and Thursdays through June 7, Jordan will be offering three-hour educational hiking excursions, by appointment, to a small number of guests who will once again be able to revel in the views along with the woodlands, lakes, meadows, olive groves and gardens that regulars to the winery near Healdsburg remember well.

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain
The British Columbia Aviation Council said Monday it is starting to see small ‘green shoots’ of regrowth in the province’s aviation sector, after the devastation wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s an extremely ugly bottom for our industry but at least we appear to be there,” the council said Monday in a note to members. “Some small grass shoots have just started to appear. The big question is how fast will they grow.”
BCAC member Pacific Coastal, the third-busiest airline at Vancouver International Airport when it suspended operations March 25, announced the same day it would restart limited service on June 1.
“We are pleased to confirm that we will be resuming scheduled service on June 1, 2020,” the carrier said on its website.
“Our intention is to help provide air service for essential service workers, move important goods and cargo, provide access for customers who need to travel for various medical appointments (unrelated to COVID-19) and continue to offer remote communities access to the essential service of air travel should they require it.”

Featuring a comfortable new design, the Muse-S multi-sensory band lulls you using neurofeedback and customized guided meditations.
Whether traveling for work or fun, the factors involved—the hassles, the time zone changes, the disrupted sleep—can throw our overall wellness out of whack. Aimed at grounding the body, centering and calming a busy mind and encouraging you to feel present, mediation can help get things back in balance; while you’re not supposed to fall asleep during a meditation session, it can also help promote a more restful or deeper snooze come bedtime. Launched in January, the Muse S device aims to make meditating and sleeping while traveling easy by featuring a more comfortable design (so you can use it while lying down), award-winning neurofeedback tech, and new Go-to-Sleep programs that react to your body and mind—all of which came in handy on my recent 20-hour journey to Asia.
Viking’s pair of expedition ships will operate winter cruises in Antarctica. But in the offseason, one of the vessels will head to a slightly more unusual destination for an expedition ship: the Great Lakes.
Victoria Cruise Lines says it has cancelled six cruises on China’s Yangtze River due to concerns about the coronavirus.
“While operations have not been directly impacted by the situation in Wuhan — more than 500 miles away from the American-managed company’s Chongqing office — many passengers travel through transportation hubs which have been affected by proactive measures taken by the Chinese government, creating logistical difficulties,” the company said in a statement.
Additionally, the company said China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism has asked the tour sector to temporarily suspend operations. In response, Victoria said, it has cancelled all sailings through Feb. 16, six offseason winter departures.
“Victoria Cruise Lines will monitor the situation in the interim and continue to prioritize the safety and enjoyment of its valued guests,” the company said.

At the excellent Spa at Chablé Maroma, you can make your own remedies and amulets based on Mayan wisdom–for free.
Opened in 2018, and spread out over 758 lush, protected acres along the Riviera Maya coast, Chablé Maroma is a Mexican-owned luxury resort that’s dedicated across the board to redefining wellness and paying homage to Mayan culture and traditions. As I experienced during a recent stay, this translates to everything from the easy warmth of the service and the locally-influenced design of the 70 villas to the menus of the restaurants, one of which features creative, ingredient-driven dishes developed by Chef Jorge Vallejo of Mexico City’s award-winning Quintonil. The philosophy is most evident, however, in the gorgeous eight-room spa, where guests enjoy shaman-led welcome rituals, treatments that take inspiration from elements like the sea and forest, and immersive workshops with the Spa Director in which you’ll learn about ancient Mayan healing traditions—and try your hand at them yourself.
You cannot resist that magical land, full of culture, tradition, history, breathtaking nature, and of course, specific food. By territory, China is the fourth largest country in the world, with 9,600,000 square kilometers. The capital city is Beijing, and the largest is Shanghai. In China, there is no city or any place that is not attractive to tourists, whether it is a big city or a small area surrounded by beautiful nature.
I have asked a few experienced travel guides who have visited all the major attractions in China, including those that are not very familiar to the tourists. China is in the top Four Most visited destinations in the world, proof enough that China has its beauty and what it has to offer tourists. According to them, these are the most exciting tours in China.
