People of Copacabana

The guy looked like these bodybuilders you see in magazines. No Photoshop job here, though, the muscles were real. He had the ripped body of someone who spends hours at the gym. You could have hired him to help med students memorize all muscles in the human body. He was in his late twenties and he was neither black nor white, so he was probably Brazilian. He was wearing the tightest, body-hugging swimsuit known to mankind—I’m willing to bet he had borrowed it from a younger brother. It wasn’t hi...

Scenic train rides to ski resorts

Ski vacations truly are the antidote to the post-holiday winter blahs. But sometimes getting to said ski vacations involves inching your way up an icy, two-lane highway, spending more time crammed in your car than speeding down a mountain. Much like traversing cities, trains help people avoid the pain of traffic en route to their ski destinations. Whether day trips near American metros like Denver or week-long excursions through foreign terrain in, say, Switzerland, taking a train to the moun...

Rise to the spiritual and physical challenge of the Camino de Santiago

It is a big decision when you decide to go on a pilgrimage, and the Camino de Santiago is no exception. This pilgrimage to the shrine of the apostle St James is perfect for both spiritual growth and the physical challenge. It is the epitome of soul food and a chance to get away from the busyness of day to day life and do some real reflection in beautiful surroundings. However, logistically this type of trip can be quite difficult to plan and organise. It is not just one route, there are severa...

Matador staff's favorite trips 2018

The Matador staff is based all around the world, which means we’re a well-traveled bunch. In 2018, team members went across the globe — sometimes for fun, sometimes for work, and sometimes for a mix of both. We explored the polar-bear-filled north and surfed the coast of Spain. Some of us went to cities; others took on the great outdoors. Some of us got to know our own backyards a little better. All of us took along our one piece of gear we can’t travel without.

The craziest travel stories of 2018

This year may go down as the year service animals finally got a little too extra. Though we’d tolerated dogs, cats, and even the occasional mini-horse onboard planes to help keep people sane, this year’s abundance of ridiculous emotional support animals culminated with Delta banning them on long-haul flights and Popeyes offering emotional support fried chicken. But ridiculous animals weren’t the only crazy travel stories to emerge from 2018. There was also a human heart erroneously left on a ...

Tha Boy Who Wore Pink Polish

      I found a locket at the brocante with a photo of two children sitting next to each other. The little boy has a ruffled collared shirt and cuffs, his vest and shorts are in velvet.  When Sacha was little I use to dress him like that, ruffles, velvet, in sweet antique baby things. Many people would say to me:  "Sacha is a boy you know?"     "Yes, I know."        "If you keep dressing him like a girl he is going to become a girl." "Oh, I don't believe that he will be who he will be."   I wo...
