Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions
Thu, 02/28/2013 - 11:00pm
As boats sail west on the Danube River, from the Austrian city of Vienna, they stop at some of the most magnificent monasteries in Europe. The abbeys at Melk and Klosterneuburg are two of the most famous. Klosterneuburg has been home to a group of Augustinian clergy for over 900 years and contains the Verdun Altar, which is one of the world’s most important medieval works of art. Melk was founded as a Roman garrison and became the cradle of Austrian history. Its library contains hundreds of colorfully illustrated books and was probably the inspiration for Umberto Eco’s medieval murder mystery, “The Name of the Rose”. It also has the only working model of a reusable coffin that was promoted by the King of Austria. Burt Wolf tours both monasteries and stops for lunch at the restaurant of one of Europe’s most talented women chefs.

Then, meet Gail Yellen on location for a felted jacket idea with a personal story. Last, we remove the sleeves on a jacket from Barbara Crawford.

In this second of two episodes on Europe’s “City of Light,” we ride a unicorn into the Middle Ages at the Cluny Museum, take a midnight Paris joyride in a classic car, get an extremely close-up look at heavenly stained glass in Sainte-Chapelle, go on a tombstone pilgrimage at Père Lachaise Cemetery, and savor the Parisian café scene. Few cites are so confident in their expertise in good living—and as travelers, we get to share in that uniquely Parisian joie de vivre.

Rudy Maxa's World
Sun, 02/24/2013 - 11:00pm
India is the world’s “it” country. Tumultuous, colorful, and fragrant, northern India is a mosaic of urban and rural life. “You can put a camera down almost anywhere in India and let it run for two hours,” Rudy Maxa says, “and when you return, you’ll have a film to rival an ‘Indiana Jones’ movie.” From the serene beauty of one man’s love poem to a woman, the Taj Mahal, to the crowded alleys of downtown New Delhi, India is a feast for the senses. Maxa discovers temples straight out of Disneyland and consults a street astrologer who tells him he will live a long life but his hotel room number is not an auspicious one.
