It was a beautiful day as we began our ascent up the coastal mountains from the Costa Brava city of Roses near the border with France. We were on a mission. We had eaten our way from Portugal across Spain, sampling endless small plates of tapas, pintxos, and petiscos and a dizzying array of regional specialty soup, stew, rice, and pasta dishes.
So far, I’ve gushed about all of the great dining Spanish and Portuguese establishments reviewed in this feature. And no wonder – these are the best of the best we experienced in the land of delicious and innovative dining. This brings me to Le Moi and hospitality artists Jeff Bormes and Sylvia Kogler, who take dining entertainment into the stratosphere.
For the last three decades, Mary and I have searched for great paella, maybe even the best paella in the world. We believe we found it in Valencia – not surprising since this city is the birthplace of the famous rice dish. We may think we’re hopelessly biased about this since Mary and I made the paella.

I first travelled as a child with my parents along Morocco”s mythical Kasbah Trail, the narrow ribbon of asphalt that links a string of crenelated kasbahs (fortified Berber villages) in the shadow of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains. In the twenty-first century, this “Road of One Thousand Kasbahs,” as travel brochures sometimes refer to it, has become one of Morocco’s prime tourist destinations.
As my airplane swoops down towards Lanzarote, the scene growing ever larger outside the cabin windows isn’t really what I was expecting. With its barren, brownish-red surface pockmarked by tall, conical peaks, it looks less like an island beach paradise and more like another planet—The Planet of the Ants.

fear of travel
In today’s world, fear is rampant in almost every aspect of our lives – global warming, the economy, healthcare, international politics, and yes, even travel. Even the unintended consequences of American presidential actions induce fear among travelers. We can’t do too much about most of these fearsome subjects, but we can shed some light on fear of travel.
A little fear is OK. It’s a survival instinct that has served humans well since they started walking on two legs. It rears up while traveling since you’re out of your comfort zone – out of familiar environs and routines.
