The Apostle Islands are part of his heritage, just as they are for many families living on the northern tip of Wisconsin that juts into Lake Superior. Nelson has lived among the Apostle Islands all his life, operating the Madeline Island ferry, serving as Bayfield mayor and working as a commercial fisherman in the cold Lake Superior waters. He purchased land on Rocky Island shortly after World War II. And yet at a congressional hearing in the 1960s, he testified in favor of transforming his land and other parcels among the 21 islands into a national park. "I believe when we look back at the last 50 years, with all the money people have come into, many of the islands would've been purchased and there would've been a lot of 'No Trespassing' signs," said Nelson, now 97. Today, thousands of kayakers,... What most visitors may not realize is that some of the land is still in the hands of families who bought their property before it became a national park. Most of the Apostle Islands were privately owned when Wisconsin Sen. Three reside on Sand Island, three on Rocky Island and one on Bear Island.

The smallest region in mainland France - it's 190 kilometres long and 50 kilometres wide and lies between the Vosges Mountains and the Rhine River - Alsace has flip-flopped between France and Germany for centuries. In the past 150 years it has been German (after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71), French (when Germany lost World War I and the Treaty of Versailles returned Alsace to France in 1919), German again (when it was invaded by Nazi Germany in 1940)... As our hiking and biking guide, Daniel Schneider, puts it: "We say we have the best of both worlds - delicious dishes from France and the order from the Germans. The first, and oldest, walking club in the world was formed just across the Rhine in 1864: the Schwarzwald Wanderverein (Black Forest Walking Club). we're following the Alsace Wine Route, a series of roads, hiking trails and bike paths threading through about 100 villages for 170 kilometres down the middle of the region - first on foot, then by bike. Our first day takes us 15 kilometres from Turkheim to Kaysersberg, following blue circles - there are so many trails in Alsace, each with its own symbol (triangles, squares, circles or a combination of these), you have to keep your wits about you...
