This is Brazil in a (Coco)Nutshell

At 1:30 a.m., I had a sudden craving for a pão de queijo. Don’t judge if you’ve never had this quintessential, addictive melt-in-your-mouth Brazilian snack. Fortunately, in Florianópolis, it’s easy to satisfy a few basic late-night cravings, as long as you enjoy what Brazilians eat when bars are closing—mostly fried snacks filled with chicken and cream cheese, ham-and-cheese bread, pound cake or yes, pão de queijo. Just walk to the nearest 24/7 gas station, they have a big selection of food and ...

Sunrises and Sunsets From Around the World

Attractions, landmarks, food, architecture, topography and people are only a few of the reasons why people travel to different places around the world — but sometimes the best part of the day while traveling is either when the sun rises at dawn or when the sun sets at dusk. Sunrises represent the beginning of a brand new day through which adventures and experiences await — but sunsets signal the end of a day with a time to be a night owl and go out on the town before retiring to the evening slum...

Grate Picnic Food: Cheesy Olive & Herb Scones!

Want to make the most of picnic weather and make something to share? Try these savoury scones made with cheese, olives, herbs and garlic. These will disappear fast so make sure you nab a slice before everyone else does! I served these scones with a batch of the roasted tomato butter I made but you could serve these plain or with butter. If they're warm they're really lovely but these were cold by the time we got to the family picnic and they were still a hit. And that's not even counting the fac...

Cassis Home Renovation Project

At Least 200 American Airlines Regional Jets Will Get Seat Power This Year

Over the last couple of years American Airlines has been aggressively adding seat power and satellite internet to their fleet. They've made a strategic decision not to offer seat back video on demand the way that Delta does. Since customers need to use their own devices for entertainment, they need to power those devices. And with the mainline fleet well underway for these modifications, the airline is now in the process of add seat power to two-cabin regional jets -- Embraer ERJ-175s, Bombardi...

Travel: Largest cruise ship ever to be based year-round in Southern California coming to Long Beach

Come December, Southern California cruisers will say “ahoy” to the new 4,000-passenger Carnival Panorama, currently being built at the same Italian shipyard where the ship it’s replacing, the 3,100-passenger Carnival Splendor, was constructed a decade ago. Just months away from a sea test at the Fincantieri shipyard near Venice, Italy, the Panorama is the third vessel in Carnival’s Vista Class, following the 2-year-old Carnival Vista and 9-month-old Carnival Horizon.

Why Window Shades Should Be Kept Closed On Your Next Flight

I always prefer an aisle seat but the person in the window gets to decide whether the shade is up or down. And more often than not shades should be closed. Window shades as well as cabin lighting get adjusted for takeoff and landing for safety, to improve reaction time of both passengers and crew. And when you land in a hot city you'll often be asked to close the window shades before getting off the aircraft, to keep the plane cool for the next flight. But what about when you're in the air, mi...

Sniff out Safety: Smell Proof Bags That Will Keep You Safe in the City and in the Wild

Have you ever imagined life without a sense of smell? Probably not, unless you have a friend with anosmia. People take this sense quite for granted until they have a cold, then nothing tastes right. But even the keenest nose on earth pales in comparison to an animal’s nose. In fact, if an animal became a human, it would feel as though it had completely lost its sense of smell. On the bright side, this experiment will never happen… But people still have smells we try to hide from people or anima...
