Alone in the Doge's Palace - Venice, Italy

Palazzo Ducale at night - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) Tonight I was alone inside the Doge's Palace with only the phantoms of the past. I had come from a book presentation in the Doge's Private Chapel. It was not the first time I have been alone inside Palazzo Ducale.When I first arrived in Venice twenty years ago, I was fortunate enough to have an access-all-areas pass to the Doge's Palace to do some research, and could wander freely through the rooms rich with the Renaissance. I met...

An Unlikely Match: How I Learned to Love Visiting China

I was born in the 1970s, grew up in the ‘80s and came of age in the ‘90s. Because of this my view of the world is very much a product of the era in which I grew up, namely, that certain countries were good and others, well, not quite as awesome. Naturally this is reduced to a very binary perspective, and while it’s of course changed over the years it’s hard to shake the indoctrination one receives as a young child. The way in which I perceived China before visiting a few years ago was very much...

Explore Sydney on a Budget: 13 Cheap or Free Things to Do

Updated: 11/06/2018 | Novemebr 6th, 2018 As my friends and I drank wine in the shadow of the Opera House, I couldn’t help but be happy – I was back in Sydney for the first time in five years and I was here for over two weeks! “Shall we go somewhere else?” my friends asked. “Sure, let’s get the bill!” I replied. When our check came, I was reminded of something about Sydney I had forgotten: its high prices. Even with a currently weak Australian dollar, Sydney was more expensive than I remembered....

Ram rajya as capitalism: This Diwali day, let us determine to overthrow socialism.

A few weeks ago I was stranded in traffic in Delhi in an Uber vehicle. I had time for a long chat with the driver and so we discussed India’s situation. He started by supporting both Modi and Kejriwal but minutes into our conversation, he couldn’t identify a single improvement on the ground. I then […]

To vote, or not to vote?

As this Election Day in the USA has approached, I've been seeing more and more "Get Out The Vote" messages that argue (or, worse, don't bother to argue but rather presume as not needing argument) that voting is some kind of duty or obligation, and that eligible citizens "ought" to vote. I think we need more, not less, discussion of whether or not to vote, and of the reasons people choose to vote or not to vote. And more people should have that choice: non-citizens, people under 18 years old, ...

Why you should visit Central Asia

Travel to Asia is dominated by a handful of big names. Japan and China, expat hubs like Chiang Mai and Bali, and the infamous backpacker’s strip of Khao San Road in Bangkok. But Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and other former Soviet republics that make up Central Asia are creeping up on the horizon as the next big destination everyone is going to be talking about and flocking to for their next holiday. The rising tourism trend of the “Stans” makes perfect sense when you consider just how much they h...

Where I Find the Best Travel Deals

Updated: 11/6/2018 | November 6th, 2018 Finding the best travel deals is a matter of timing. A lot of people think travel is just plain expensive, but in reality, there are incredible deals happening all the time. They usually don’t last too long, and you have to act quickly. That can sometimes be a problem when a deal requires jumping on a plane tomorrow (how many people can do that?), but in fact, most deals are for months in the future, giving you ample time to plan your schedule. Often I w...

Espresso Martinis are better abroad

If you order an Espresso Martini at a bar in the US, there’s a good chance the only thing you’ll be served is some judgment from the bartender. Or at the very least, an overly sweet, watered-down, subpar version of the cocktail you wanted. It’s a different story in Australia and much of Europe, though, where the Espresso Martini is a cherished drink that you should order every chance you get. The history of the Espresso Martini begins with a tired supermodel ready to party and a discreet Brit...

Delta Has an Election Day Ad They Want You to See

Ningyo kanshasai: the last rites for dolls

Dolls sometimes have a very visible role in Japanese culture, such as on Girls’ Day (Hinamatsuri), when they are shown both at home, and in public. There are the far more common kokeshi too. So, with this in mind, it’s perhaps not surprising that they are considered more important than other toys or ornaments. Similarly, after being a treasured companion during a child’s upbringing, or on display in the home for many years, simply throwing them away when they aren’t wanted anymore is hard for a ...
