United States: United by the Border: Explore San Diego and Baja's Binational Spirit 

By joyoftravel.ca news services

Pristine beaches and vibrant neighborhoods make San Diego the ultimate beach city, but its relationship and proximity to Baja California, Mexico, makes San Diego a unique destination unlike any other in the U.S., where art, architecture, cuisine and more build cultural bridges on both sides of the border.
At less than 20 miles from downtown San Diego, the busiest border crossing in the world connects the city with Tijuana, Rosarito, Ensenada and Guadalupe Valley, a cluster of cities known for their rich artistic and culinary offerings. Here, a continuous exchange of ideas, flavors and traditions shape San Diego's cultural, historic and culinary identity. San Diego welcomes visitors from around the world to experience this binational spirit first hand.

United States: The best meal…. ever!

By Paul Knowles

My trip to San Diego was amazingly full of such incidents – and while I am writing the “big picture” articles for large-circulation print media (eventually to pop up on joyoftravel.ca, as well), I feel happily compelled to publish a few highly focused pieces, right here.
Let’s start with perhaps the best meal I have ever – yes, ever – enjoyed. (Shown: Brian Malarkey, left, and Chris Puffer; Paul Knowles Photo).

The two communities have a lot in common – except for the southern California climate, of course.
