Eating My Way Around Myrtle Beach in 6 Bites

I expected a lot from my first trip to Myrtle Beach and while I knew I’d be eating well, I never expected the culinary aspect to be as important as it was. More than the gorgeous beach views or the fun activities, food well and truly defined my time in and around beautiful Myrtle Beach. I ate a lot – probably too much – during my brief, three-day stay but these bites weren’t just my favorites, they exemplify the dynamic culinary scene I think perfectly. Chicken Bog I love great soul food, whic...

Canine Care Tips for Travelers

Dogs are similar to cats in that they’re essentially creatures of habit. They get used to all of their daily routines. They like getting treats in the morning after their walks in the park. They love waiting by the front door for their owners to return in the evening as well. It all adds up to one thing: it’s tough for canines to deal with changes that interfere with their daily regimens. With this in mind, it’s no surprise travel can be a major adjustment for dogs. It can be hard for dogs to r...

Is hooking up abroad ethical?

I spent six years writing a weekly budget travel column, and for most of that time, I was single. (Yeah, you try to maintain a relationship when you’re out of town 200 days a year.) Most friends were sympathetic to my solo plight. But one, a married friend wishing to live vicariously through the life he imagined I led, was not. Whenever I mentioned a woman’s name in an article — a bus-mate or barista or guide or Couchsurfing host or Airbnb neighbor that had given good advice or said something...

A Sacred Valley Spa in a 17th Century Building From Explora

We first posted about the latest Explora hotel in Peru when it opened two years ago and we got a correspondent in early to check it out. As these things usually go though, work was still going on during the opening months and additions rolled out over the next two years. We just got someone back in the property again to see how it has matured in that time so we could get a more complete picture. You can see the fully updated review here. The biggest change has been the addition of a Sacred Val...

Boeing 787 Full of Passengers Held Up Until Passengers Came Up With $360 to Pay for Repairs

In 2012 an Air France flight bound for Beirut diverted to Damascas and passengers were forced to come up with cash for additional fuel. The pilot couldn’t use a company credit card because of financial sanctions imposed on Syria. So as insane as it sounds it’s not without precedent that passengers on a Star Alliance member LOT Polish Boeing 787 flight were asked to reach into their pockets to cover repair costs to the plane’s hydraulic pump before a Beijing to Warsaw journey could begin last Mon...

Portrait of a Shinto shrine maiden

Miko, or Shinto shrine maidens, can often be seen selling amulets, taking part in ceremonies, or swiftly moving from one building to another. Young, identically dressed women who once had important roles within the religion, but nowadays are generally just University students helping out on a part-time basis. Still, regardless of their status, or level of training, getting the chance for a quick portrait isn’t a common occurrence. At least not for me it isn’t, anyway. So here — in monochrome as ...
