In today's Times, Traveling in Style magazine visits some of the world's sacred grounds, starting with Pagan, Myanmar's city of temples, which also is home to treasures of ancient Burmese kings. But the sacred, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder and means different things to different people. So we also linger on Ireland's Dingle Peninsula, where the language--and stories--are revered; the Yucatan Peninsula, where fishermen pay homage to the ubiquitous Caribbean bonefish; Kentucky's Rolling Fork River valley, home of the abbeys, convents and whiskey distilleries of rural Catholic America--and we join a father and his children as they walk through the shrine-dotted Northern Italian countryside.
