Trekking Through New Zealand

I saw and experienced some amazing things on my recent trip to New Zealand. I saw a huge, snowcapped volcano and a boiling lake and river. I walked on a trail along a beach, trapped between cliffs and the ocean, hiked up a mountain through heavy wind, sleet, and rain. Still, what stands head and shoulders above the all of the incredible

Keeping Kosher in New Zealand

I can’t go to New Zealand, you might think. How could I travel there while still keeping kosher? Well, this summer I traveled through New Zealand for over a month and successfully kept kosher. It’s not as easy as it is in America or Israel, but, as I found out when hiking over beautiful mountains in the Queen

Family Things to Do on Chol HaMoed

By Larry Bernstein

It’s October 12, 2014, the fourth day of Sukkot and the second day of Chol Hamoed.

There are four days till another Yom Tov and the children are off from school. Let me speculate on what’s going through your mind.

We have plenty of opportunity for some family time. This is a

Get Peyd–Amex Miles/Points Update

For many years, American Express (Amex) has dominated the credit card industry because of its customer service, security features, and consumer protection policies. In addition, Amex cards earn Membership Rewards (MR) points, the most used and sought after point programs for frequent flyers because of their redemption flexibility and the ease with which

Travel to Israel via Europe

Many people are enrolled in one or more frequent flyer programs. Most common plans are to get an airline credit card, the first year no fee, get the 30-40K free miles and then “churn” this card to a different carrier each year, so that you don’t end up paying more than your reward. Others prefer to use hotel chain cards. One advantage of the frequent flyer is

The Borscht Belt Revisited

 

Weather may be iffy, finances tight, and time at a premium, but since childhood sum­mer has always meant vacation, be it a few hours at a pick-it-yourself truck farm or fruit grove, a day trip to hike the hills of the Catskills or Appalachian slopes, or Shabbos away from the usual, using Friday and Sunday to

More to the Poconos than Great Wolf Lodge

The Poconos, Pa.—Most people I know visit the Poconos for two things: white water rafting (day trippers) and Great Wolf Lodge for winter break or a long extended weekend. The Poconos offer so much more than water trips. Spring, summer, winter or fall, the Poconos has it all. From trout fishing in Paradise Creek to

Take a Rest on the Jersey Side

On the way back to Bergen County, or on your way to the Poconos, there is a NJ rest stop, the only pit stop on Route 80 West that offers great views, beautiful picnic areas, vending machine food if you need it. There’s also a dog run, and lovely fields and shady groves that are perfect for playing Frisbee, having a picnic, or just relaxing
