Notre Dame

Notre Dame is so impressive. We made a quick visit there the other day. A look at the exterior from across the Seine. The creche was from Provence with village people of Santons. The chapel devoted to the Virgin of Guadaloupe is very popular. A look down the length of the impressive interior with the pretty Christmas wreath overhead.

Praia Mole (Swimsuit On), Praia Da Galheta (Swimsuit Off)

How come we tend to only memorize hurtful comments and not soothing, flattering remarks? I remember the day I started feeling self-conscious about my body. I had just turned 13 and I was meeting friends at the beach. We hadn’t discovered flirting yet, so we were actually going to play, chat or whatever we had planned that day. I didn’t think twice about changing into my swimsuit because that’s normal beachwear. All it took was one look and one comment. “Wow, what happened to you? Why you have so...

A Disneyland Christmas – Tips and Lessons From My Holiday Experience

Planning a Christmastime trip to Disneyland can be a little daunting for anyone, especially for someone like me who is new to all things Disney. After an incredible, albeit brief, experience in the Happiest Place on Earth earlier in the year, I was excited to experience the park during the December holiday season. After a lot of research, I knew that Disneyland takes Christmas very seriously and in addition to all of the normal attractions, I couldn’t wait to enjoy the special events and foods ...

Was 2018 as Good a Year for Electric Vehicles as They Say?

Teslas galore. But at the Tesla factory, not on the streets of most cities. Supporters of battery electric vehicles (EV and/or BEV) are rapturous about the 81% increase in electric vehicles sold in 2018 compared to 2017.  This table shows the breakdown, with a total of 361,307 vehicles sold in the US in 2018, compared to 199,826 sold in 2017. We should add a disclaimer.  We love electric-powered vehicles.  We’d like nothing more than to get a fully loaded Tesla, and, failing that, just about an...

Best places to travel this February

Though for much of the world February is the cold, barren home stretch of winter, it’s also one of the cheapest times of the year to travel since everyone is still feeling the burn in their wallets left by the holiday season. Well, what are a few extra hundred bucks on the Amex if it means killer flight deals and almost no crowds? While Carnival and Mardi Gras fall in early March this year, plenty of Carribean destinations will be kicking off their celebrations early in February, giving you a...

Tips on travel to Antarctica

A mere hundred years ago, going to Antarctica was exclusively the realm of hardened, grizzled explorers who didn’t mind being away from home for years and losing a toe or three. Flash forward to 2019, and you’ve got ships with wine pairing dinners and butler service making dozens of trips there a year. Though getting there’s not cheap, the White Continent is now fully accessible to anyone who can afford it. But it’s still not as simple as taking a 10-day tour around the Caribbean. Because Ant...

Joshua Tree National Park vandalism

Vandals have been chopping down protected trees in Southern California’s Joshua Tree National Park during the government shutdown, so they can go four-wheeling across the sensitive desert landscape, said the National Park Service (NPS). A photo of a downed Joshua tree taken by the NPS went viral after it was posted on Tuesday, prompting calls for the park to be shut down. The park has remained open during the government shutdown, but the lack of staff has meant people have been able to enter...

Eating raw chicken sashimi in Tokyo

When it comes to eating sashimi in Tokyo, fish is by far the most ubiquitous offer. But it’s not the only one. Restaurants also serve shikasashi (deer), basashi (horse), and — perhaps most hotly debated of all — torisashi (chicken). The name loosely translates to “raw bird,” and it’s exactly what it sounds like: thinly sliced raw chicken breast served with a flavorful salt or sauce. I never thought I’d order raw chicken sashimi-style. Like most Americans, I grew up deeply terrified of salmon...
