There's lots of travel fun happening in our Travelers' Café -- a collection of favorite blogs for all my travel buddies. Cameron Hewitt is now in Scotland, as he realized when he stepped into the breakfast room and found a bottle of whisky. Cameron reports on the "tartan tat" (kitschy sales gimmicks travelers find in Edinburgh), the truth about "family tartans," and much more. If you treasure your romantic Scottish clichés, don't read his latest entry. My kids Andy and Jackie are in northern Vietnam on a two-day cruise through stunning Halong Bay. In his video report, Andy says he's fallen into the set of "Avatar." And Jackie writes vividly about the experience.
