Solo Lady Travel: 7 Safety Myths Debunked

I never planned to be someone who routinely made looks of horror cross people’s faces.  And yet when I tell people I’ve traveled solo around the world for six months, that’s the most common reaction I get. “Really?!” The eyes grow wide.  “Weren’t you worried about…” And the conversation will turn to one of many myths when it comes to women traveling alone, many of which fly counter to the realities I’ve faced during my travels. Here are a few of the bigger chunks of mistaken lore and advice I’v...

The only one left (bis)

I already wrote about « the only one left » here – soon 11 years ago – how time flies! I will not repeat what I wrote then, about the “vespasiennes”, about the 1200 of them in Paris during the 1930’s etc… So, the last one is still there. It was obviously repainted, cleaned… some ten years ago. It seems obvious that something has to be done again - it’s in very bad shape. As it’s the last one I hope it will remain there and will be saved “for ever”, after some refreshing, please!!. It...

The Escuela Superior De Mecánica De La Armada – From a Symbol of State Terror to Human Rights Defence

Taking my brand-new Sube card out of my bag, I briefly wondered which of the two main Argentinian heritages would prevail when it comes to the state-owned train services. Did the trenes argentinos run Italian-style—“The 9:18 train will leave at… at one point…”? Or would I enjoy some Teutonic efficiency in South America—“the 9:00 a.m. train will depart between 9:00:01 and 9:00:59, offensichtlich”? And then, an employee standing by the turnstile told me not to swipe my card—the ride was free becau...

Best secret hot springs in the West

Hot springs are nature’s spa. And since you find them in settings like vast deserts and moss-shrouded forests, they can often be combined with an outdoor activity, be it hiking, running, or even surfing. While some springs require reservations and planning — to avoid the crowds that make them seem more like water parks than quiet getaways — several lesser-known hot springs, from Death Valley to Vancouver Island, do offer welcome solitude. Here’s where to go. A word on natural hot springs Th...

Every type of clam chowder, ranked

All clam chowders are not made equal. You’re likely familiar with the basics of clam chowder, but if you’ve ever traveled up the Northeast coast, you know it’s much more complicated than a simple order.
