Why the Capital One Venture Card Doesn’t Suck Anymore

Posted: 12/16/2018 | December 16th, 2018 They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I don’t have a dog, so I don’t know if that’s true. But I do know that an old travel writer can change his mind. Years ago, I wrote about why I hated the Capital One Venture Card. While it had a simple points structure and no overseas fees, it wasn’t really good for travel hacking because you couldn’t transfer points anywhere and it didn’t have a great catagory spend bonus structure. You simply got two po...

The Best Neighborhoods in Boston: Where to Stay on Your Visit

Posted: 12/16/2018 | December 16th, 2018 Boston. Beantown. The town. My hometown. I love the city. I’m probably biased since I grew up here but I think it’s one of the most underappreciated cities in the entire country. It’s just a wonderful, friendly place to live and visit! The history, the food, the sports, the community. Boston is like a big small town. It’s one of the best places in the country to visit. And all the college students here help give the city a permanent youthful energy! Bu...

A mobile shop serving isolated west Tokyo

The far west of Tokyo is a world away from the bright lights and busy streets the city is famous for. It’s mountainous and green for starters, plus it’s also home to bar owners in their 90s, wonderfully atmospheric old train tunnels and long since abandoned cable cars. However, that’s not the whole story, as seek out the area’s villages, and it feels altogether different again. Small pockets of civilisation that seem utterly isolated despite being located in one of the world’s most populated cit...
