Follow Me On A Different Sort of Holiday Getaway

Over the course of the last 8 years, I’ve developed a kind of holiday tradition of traveling to Europe the week or two before Christmas. It started as a way to take advantage of an air deal, but since then developed into a full-blown habit. I’ve stayed in rented condos, taken river cruises and enjoyed some incredible hotels from Belgium and France to Germany and Austria, all the way south to Italy and as far east as Hungary. It’s been a fun way to learn more about the Christmas traditions uniqu...

Mascarons... Macron

The other day, last Monday, I walked along part of the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, from rue Royale to the Elysée Palace. This part of the street is where you find a number of 18th century palaces, some of them now embassy residences (Japan, U.S.A, United Kingdom…), and also some other mostly rather ancient buildings. It was obviously in fashion to decorate older buildings by “mascarons” , often grotesque faces. Paris is full of them, so we should take the ones I will show just a...

Save On Your Dream Road Trip With These 5 Financial Tips

Staycations are can be wonderful experiences in that they give you the chance to lie around the house for a few days, maybe hang out at your favourite place or catch up on old chores that need completing. However, road tripping, while taking a lot of effort, is always a better alternative to staying at home. For one, it can be a great change of scenery that is almost like a refresher and can make going back to work bearable. Today’s road trips do not even have to be expensive, as travel apps...

5 Tips for Celebrating Christmas in a Foreign Culture

Christmas and its traditions seem to quickly be seeping across many borders. Whether you are reading this from your home in jolly ol’ England or sunny Dubai, whether you have a view of Mt. Everest or are taking in the surf on Australia’s Gold Coast, it’s likely that you have already heard Jingle Bells or seen brightly lit up Christmas trees in sometimes the most random locations. When I was an intern in Beijing, China, I often forgot I was living in a country where Christmas is not a national ho...

3 Reasons You Should Know About the Leela Palace Hotel in New Delhi

An important aspect of any trip for me are the hotels and resorts that are my temporary homes. A truly great property is so much more than a simple place to spend the night, they become integral aspects of the trip itself and, many times, even create some of those incredible memories we take home with us. Traveling with luxury tour operator Abercrombie & Kent, I know that the hotels will always be amazing, but in India even I was surprised at the incredible quality of hotels across the country....

Why you need to see Idaho in winter

Idaho is one of those places that conjures up very specific images. Mostly just potatoes. But to limit your perception of the Gem State to a starchy root vegetable is about as accurate as calling Mt. Everest a foothill. Idaho is a mountain lover’s paradise sprinkled with just enough urban action to satisfy the avid culture hound, and it’s best experienced in the winter. Here’s why you should brave the cold to go and how to take it all in. You can visit the site of America’s first chairlift. ...

New species discovered in Mekong

Scientists are getting pretty creative when it comes to naming new animal species. There were 157 new species recently discovered in the Greater Mekong — a region that encompasses Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam — and those species have some pretty interesting names. The creative names are generally inspired by physical features that, according to some, resemble well-known celebrities or Hollywood creatures.

Everything airport dogs can detect

In 1972, an NYPD German Shepherd named Brandy saved the day when she sniffed out a bomb that had been stashed on a plane, averting a massive aviation crisis and cementing the essential role dogs play in maintaining travel security. Today, dogs continue to serve vital roles in maintaining airport security from that first screening before boarding to that final check while crossing through customs and border patrol. It is thanks to months of training, during which the dogs’ natural desire to h...

Overlooked wine and cheese pairings

Wine and cheese is a classic, if very Eurocentric, combination. It’s talked about extensively by pretty much anyone who’s a fan of fine dining, and wine and cheese pairings are served everywhere from at-home wine parties to the fanciest wineries and restaurants. All the attention is for good reason. Tart or juicy wine is the best companion to a fatty, creamy cheese. Plus, few things can bring as much joy as either of these things on their own, so putting them together only seems right. It’s e...
