A World Without Venice and Rhinos? Magnificence vs. Luxury

Pietro Longhi, Clara the Rhinoceros, 1751 (Venice, Italy) Both Venice and the Rhinoceros are endangered species, ravenously desired and unthinkingly consumed by a proliferating consumer class.

Its horn has become one of the most costly luxury items o...

5 Seafood-Centric Destinations & How I Survived as a Non-Pescatarian

As a frequent traveler, one of the biggest issues I deal with is what I eat. I am a very picky eater; a confirmed carnivore, my love of vegetables is weak at best and most notably, I don’t eat any fish or seafood. My fellow Americans may wonder why I phrase it that way and the reason is simple. I was on a trip once and I had sent along my dietary requirement of No Seafood. Now, to an American that usually includes anything that was ever in the water, ever. Possible exceptions would include duck...

Music brings us all together – My weekend at Amsterdam Dance Event 2018

The lights are flashing above, reflections, bright flashes, and flickers. Maybe there’s a disco ball above. Speakers in the corner, hanging from above, behind, in front—the sounds are seemingly coming from everywhere around you. A slick floor; probably some broken glass. The smell of sweat and stale beer. A mass of bodies moving separately but similarly. The dance club is a magical place. • • • Sitting in a dark auditorium in Amsterdam, the night already upon us, I was quickly ushered into an...

Tokyo’s most faded bookshop?

Tokyo, and Japan in general, has no shortage of wonderfully old and faded structures — an aspect of the country I’ve documented on my portfolio site here, as well as on my Instagram feed which is almost entirely dedicated to such scenery. These kinds of buildings, however, are far from equal, as this truly incredible example in the far west of Tokyo amply demonstrates. A local business that has textures and signage by the absolute bucket load. It’s one that’s still a going concern too, it just h...

Best indoor climbing walls in the US

It’s too cold to climb outside in all but the sunniest of destinations, and avid climbers know it’s vital to keep in shape so they can get back on the mountain come spring. Luckily, today’s indoor climbing walls are anything but generic, providing varied activities, lessons, even shops and bars oriented toward the climbing community. Winter is also a time for major indoor competitions, and skills clinics pop up on topics ranging from leading multi-pitch routes to parkour and footwork. The ver...
