My 2019 Goals in Life and Travel

This post is probably a couple of weeks overdue, but I wasn’t mentally ready yet to tackle it. Posts like this one require a great deal of emotional energy and, frankly, I haven’t been up to it lately. But it’s something I need to do for myself, if no one else as it really does help me organize my thoughts and get ready for a new year. It’s far too easy to fall into familiar and comfortable routines, at least it is for me, but by starting out the year with a clear roadmap – or at least a solid ...

A Tokyo meal delivered the traditional way

Modern delivery motorbikes or more old-school Honda Super Cubs are the standard method these days for quickly, and efficiently, transporting meals around the capital. Now and again, however, it is still possible to see how things used to be done.

Norwegian liquor travels the world

People have different definitions of what it means to be well-traveled. For some, it means a big portion of your time is spent exploring new places. To others, it simply means racking up passport stamps. Every drop of Linie Aquavit, a spirit from Norway, is well-traveled regardless of how you define it. In fact, all of the Linie sold since 1821 has seen more of the world than the vast majority of humans. Before being bottled, Linie is aged in 500-liter barrels that previously held Oloroso she...

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

Adult reading material on the morning commute?

13 winter images of Fjord Norway

M aybe it was the Norwegian winters that bred the Vikings into such adventurers and conquerors. This famously hard-helmeted lot originated in the land of fjords, waterfalls, and glaciers, of snowy mountains and icy waters. The Fjord Norway landscape was their training ground — what other terrain could have made them so notoriously courageous? Much has changed since the Viking Age, but winter in Norway is still the time to Go Viking. Today, this involves exploring UNESCO sites and Christmas mar...

I don’t know about you, but money has been on my mind a lot recently. Probably because I’m anxiously awaiting several end-of-year payments from work I did last year, and also the fact that it’s the NEW YEAR and I’ve got to start planning for the future…I guess. As a freelancer & business owner, I’m always a little anxious about my fluctuating income. And with the volatile market the past month, my future is increasingly…worrisome. One of my top goals for 2019 is to save more money. Just feels li...

Healthy holidays and a sunscreen rethink: top five travel trends for 2019

Rising eco-awareness, wellness breaks and a farewell to passports ... we look at changes in the world of travel for the year aheadLast October, Club 18-30 holidays staggered off into the sunset, aged 50. To the relief of Mediterranean resorts that had spent decades dealing with the carnage caused by epic drinking challenges, it appears that buckets of warm sangria – or worse – have lost their appeal. We have entered the era of the healthy holiday, driven by young people who want to be sober enou...

9 popular Matador Instagram photos

People usually do at least one of three things as a year comes to a close: reflect on how the past year has gone, think up resolutions for the coming year, and party it up. 2018 was a great year for travel, with economies bouncing back and welcoming more tourism than ever, and it was also a year that people thought about ways to travel sustainably, as well as the impact of social media on the places they visit. Instagram has its pros and cons, but no matter what side of the debate you fall on...

The biggest ways 2018 changed food

A lot changed about the way we eat — and the way we think about food — in 2018. We lost Anthony Bourdain, a man who opened people’s eyes to other cultures and changed the way we think about how food and culture interact. Samin Nosrat, the author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat and host of a show of the same name, taught everyone with a Netflix account a new way to think about cooking around the world. There was more authenticity in restaurants, and some places the media had written off for dead were...

New Year’s resolutions for travelers

Wherever you are in the world, it’s that time of year again. The holidays are almost behind us and the pressure of committing to endless, unachievable New Year’s resolutions is just around the corner. But while it’s tempting to succumb to the “new year, new me” craze, the start of a new year is also a good time to think about how you can better pursue your passions. Maybe you’ve never traveled on your own, maybe there’s a special destination you’ve always wanted to visit, or maybe you simply ...

A selection of my favourite photographs from 2018

With another year rapidly nearing its end, it’s time once again to select my favourite photographs from the past 12 months. In a world that all too often can seem full of nothing but dishonesty, chaos and a complete lack of empathy, photography has once again been a personal saviour. The simple process of heading out and seeing what happens remains a constant source of both joy, and contentment. It’s also a key factor in my desire to find interesting new places in Tokyo, as well as Japan in gene...

An octogenarian in her grubby little Tokyo bar

For the last 40 years, the 82-year-old owner of this little Tokyo bar has stood behind the counter cooking cheap food and serving similarly inexpensive drinks. Yet despite those 4 decades of operation, no other westerners had ever walked through the door. Similarly absent during that time period has been any serious attempt at cleaning — the incredible amounts of dust and grime everywhere making each and every surface a source of both fascination, and trepidation. Elements that, when combin...
