Vocal Skyline Rocks the Frari on Epiphany - Venice, Italy

Vocal Skyline rocks the Frari - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) Vocal Skyline, the Venetian choral group, rocked the Frari on Epiphany, kicking off the New Year with a seismic shift. It was the most astonishing concert I have ever seen in a church on a sacred holiday, with tunes by Michael Jackson, Abba, Queen, Cold Play -- even "Mad World" by Gary Jules -- mixed in with more traditional fare, all somehow fitting profoundly into the theme of the Epiphany, updated for contemporary ears. T...

Brief Look at the New Tropical Hideaway in Disneyland

On my recent trip to the Disneyland Resort in California, I was lucky enough to be in the park when the newest restaurant offering opened – the Tropical Hideaway. Since it was brand new, I had to stop by for lunch and I’m thrilled that I did. Located in Adventureland between the Jungle Cruise and Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, the quick service restaurant has a fun and exotic vibe that I resonated with right away. There’s no doubt that the epic popularity of the frozen treat the Dole Whip h...

Mochi Tsuki

I got crazy for mochi on a trip to Hawaii. I’m pretty sure Happy Hearts mochi was my introduction and specifically, it was the chocolate haupia (coconut pudding) that sent me round the bend. Mochi became my go to treat on all my trips to Hawaii. I ate mochi from Two Ladies Kitchen for dinner one night when I was staying in Hilo, and more than once I’ve snarfed down one piece over my limit after visiting Kansai Yamata. No visit to Hawaii is complete without a belly full of pillowy fresh mochi. If...

Ryanair passengers bus to Greece

When you’ve just landed after a long-haul flight, the last thing you want is to board a bus for another leg of travel. Imagine how the passengers of this Ryanair flight felt when their plane from London, bound for Greece, landed in Romania instead and were told to catch a bus the rest of the way to Greece. The plane was supposed to arrive in Thessaloniki, Greece, by 10:00 PM, but fog at the airport caused a diversion. Normally the plane would land in Skopje, the nearby Macedonian capital, but...

Most expensive tourist visas

Americans enjoy a powerful passport and plenty of benefits that make travel easy, but that doesn’t mean entry to every country comes cheap. Tourist visas to some countries add a relatively hefty financial burden to the trip-planning and budgeting processes for hopeful visitors. Travel is always worth the expense, but make sure to leave some extra room in your budget if you’re an American planning to visit these countries. And keep in mind that these prices aren’t the same for all nationalitie...

Indian curries you need to try

People are creatures of habit — especially when it comes to food. It’s simply easier to stick to tried-and-true dishes that we know are delicious. With Indian food, that often means ordering (and re-ordering) the regular recommendations of chicken tikka masala, garlic naan, dal, and biryani. Indian cuisine, however, is much more than that. The menus of many Indian restaurants in the US and UK are typically dominated by Mughlai dishes, a category of north Indian food. Some classic orders lack ...

Lion Air delays mean fried chicken

As anyone who’s been to an airport knows, traveling is not all white-sand beaches and swaying palm trees. Crazy delays, unpredictable weather, and overcrowding can make even the most well-traveled feel a bit jittery when they head to the airport. In Philadelphia, the well-loved chain Popeyes Louisiana Chicken tried to ease some stress by offering “emotional support fried chicken.” How innovative, you might be thinking. How avant-garde of them! Brilliant as this Popeyes stunt may be, it’s not...

Eating Everything in Kota Kinabalu

I firmly believe that Kota Kinabalu is one of the most underrated cities in Southeast Asia. Hardly anybody talks about it, but for me, it was love at first sight. After originally planning to spend three days in town, Dave and I decided to extend our stay to three weeks within several hours of arriving. A huge reason behind this decision was the incredible food scene. I think that Kota Kinabalu is one of the best cities in the region for food, pulling even with Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, ...

How the shutdown is affecting travel

The government has been shut down for about two weeks, and travelers are really feeling its negative effects. While the shutdown isn’t making travel impossible, it’s thrown a wrench into many aspects of the travel industry that have resulted in delays, inconveniences, and even safety concerns for travelers. The longer the shutdown lasts, the more issues are likely to arise. While TSA agents remain working, an increasing number are taking “sick days” due to being forced to work without pay, ca...

Molly the Mermaid Turns Sixteen

                        Wet seaweed full of sand I gathered up, admiring the texture and subtle colors, remembering as a child how I could hardly stand to look at it, let alone touch it. With seaweed in hand, I walked back to my brother's campsite, Molly (my five-year-old niece) ran up to me. When she saw the seaweed she asked what I was going to do with it. "I am going to make a seaweed crown do you want to wear it?"  I was certain she would shake her head no, then run and hide. Instead she sa...

HTC teases Vive Pro with embedded eye-tracking

HTC is giving its high-end enterprise-focused Vive Pro VR headset a feature bump in the next few months that’s focused on eye-tracking. The company has certainly been having some financial struggles recently, those issues have seemed to force the company to more firmly fix its VR efforts on enterprise markets while loosely aiming to court consumers that aren’t scared away by the higher price point. What does eye-tracking in a VR headset enable? Well, a few things actually. The most talked abo...
