One Thousand and One Nights

  At the brocante where objects have a way of finding me an early 18OOs collection of, One Thousand and One Nights ,' seduced me by the royal blue book-jackets with gilded lettering. Gently opening them perfectly intact engravings, and words that evoke mystery. "Prince of True Believers, what-so thou want-est, Hundred golden pieces, exceeding wonder, pomegranate grains, magnetic mountain, wend the way, young man burst, cast thy net, honey fritters, kissed the earth, ebony horse, shaved be...

Plaques, plaques...

Walking along the streets, along the banks of Île Saint-Louis, you will probably find one of the world’s highest concentration of commemorative plaques. Almost all the buildings are from the middle of the 17 th century, most of them with the brothers Louis and François Le Vau as architects. You will find most of the names referred to on the plaques on Wikipedia (I “stole” only the portraits), but not quite all. There are names like Camille Claudel, Honoré Daumier, George Pompidou,...

How to Visit and Enjoy Washington, DC In Spite of a Government Shutdown

No matter where you live, by now you have no doubt heard about the shutdown of the Federal Government across the U.S. The effects of this closure are many and widely felt but today I’m not going to talk about the politics of it.

Tried & Tested: Hotel N’vY, Geneva

Just a 5 minute walk from Lake Geneva and not too far from the town centre, Hotel N’vY is wonderfully located. But it’s location in and of itself is definitely not the only reason why we’d recommend this 4 star luxury hotel over and over again. Part of the Manotel Hotel Group and designed by hotel architect Patrick Ribes, Hotel N’vY is more of an art gallery meets hotel. The lobby is filled with eye-catching artwork from renowned artists such as David Cintract, Bruno Catalano and Damien R...

One of These Nights in Rio

I’m getting antsy because it’s 6:30 p.m. and I haven’t accomplished anything yet today. Well, technically, I did—we packed, checked out of the hotel in Florianópolis, took a taxi to the airport, queued at the GOL check-in counter to get boarding passes, weighted our checked baggage at the self-service kiosk and pay for them (it’s 60 reais if you do it yourself but 120 reais if you do it at the counter) then queued again to drop off the two backpacks now properly tagged. We waited at the very cro...

Stupid Tip of the Day: Raising an Armrest on the Aisle

Many people believe that the armrest on the seat in the economy class cabin adjacent to the aisle is rigid and cannot be moved — yet there are reasons why someone seated in the aisle seat would want that armrest raised: for greater ease of sitting in the seat; or perhaps for some extra room when standing up is not an option at the moment. Many airplane models are equipped with... The post Stupid Tip of the Day: Raising an Armrest on the Aisle appeared first on The Gate.
