February 1, 201552 min
Find out what's been threatening the mid-Pacific…and what’s being done to protect it. Then learn about an unusual — and often comfortable — alternative to hotels and B&Bs: convents and monasteries, many of which welcome travelers in some of the world’s prime locales. And listen in while the man behind The Long Winters tells tales from his band’s tours around Europe, and reveals where they’ve found the biggest fans for American rock and roll.
