Abroad at Home


I witnessed an arti (ceremony of light) last year in Rishikesh, India. See the same ceremony in Lilburn, where it is performed daily by Hindu monks at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, the largest Hindu temple of its kind outside of India.

That’s just one of the fascinating adventures detailed in the new book Abroad at Home: The 600 Best International Travel Experiences in North America.

Accompanied by the gorgeous photography you’d expect from a National Geographic publication, the book offers places to see lavender fields, go on an African-style safari, watch Scottish Highland games and find the best Italian gelato.
