8 travel resolutions for 2013


Senior International Correspondent Ben Wedeman set his sights on Mongolia early in life.

“Back when I was, I think, nine or ten years old I read a book about Marco Polo, how he traveled with his uncles on the ultimate business trip to the Mongol Empire at its height,” wrote Wedeman, who recently moved to Rome after an assignment in Cairo.

“The trip lasted almost a quarter of a century, during which he grew up, mastered Mongolian, gained the confidence of the Mongol emperor, Kublai Khan, and then eventually returned home with fantastic tales of strange lands and stranger people. The story hooked me.”

  1. I am a good friend of Vicki Braden who has told me wonderful things about you. I enjoy her work very much. She is a great lady.

    Would love to travel with you if you don’t mind that I will be 83 in July. I am more agile than many people 20 years younger.

    Love your work.

    I co-authored a book on topographic map interpretation with Victor Miller. He is now deceased. He was a very interesting man who worked with the British during WWII mapping the invasion of Normandy. He also published a book on photogeology which has been translated into many languages. All this was before the digital revolution in photography. His daughter worked for the Peace Core in Morocco, married a Moroccan and has told me about the wonderful people and some of her experiences there. I know your trip to Morocco will be outstanding.
