Festivals are always a great place to capture portraits and candid frames. Hornbill festival known as the 'Festival of Festivals' is undoubtedly the place to visit if one would like to photograph the Naga tribes.

My Crash Course In the Unusual Beauty of Bauhaus in Germany

At a very elementary level, I enjoy design, art and architecture, but in ways that are probably largely unconscious for me. I know if I like something, or don’t, when I see it but my intellectual curiosity has never led me to explore these subjects in any great detail. That was one reason of many why I was excited to spend a day in Dessau, Germany, a lovely city in its own right but also one that is home to one of the great architectural treasures of the world, the Bauhaus. Since this is the 10...

Where to eat in Tijuana, Mexico

Tijuana sits at the crossroads of Mexico and the US. Its best-known landmark is probably the US border, the most frequently crossed port of entry in the world. Referred to as “The City of Migrants,” Tijuana is where Mexicans can live and commute to the US for work, and where Americans can escape for a night or two without getting too far from their comfort zone. For migrants coming from the South, it’s the last stop before entering the US. Yet Tijuana, one of the fastest growing cities in Me...

Get paid to go on spring break

Spring break is a special time. A time when the general rules of human behavior go right out the window and doing things like living off tequila and Pringles is perfectly acceptable. A time when the only cure for a hangover is to start drinking again, and the only physical activity you need to worry about is flip cup. It’s a glorious time. And it doesn’t need to end when college does. Not that we’re espousing rolling through Cancun 20 years after graduation. But one company is looking for a q...

Best airlines for vegetarians/vegans

The overall percentage of vegetarians in the US has remained constant over the past 20 years, but the number of options for vegetarians and people trying to cut the amount of meat in their diet is higher than ever before. Airlines are taking note, and many are upping the number of plant-based options. But just because it’s available doesn’t mean it’s always easy to acquire. In general, vegetarians, vegans, and passengers with other dietary restrictions still have to jump through hoops or risk...

British Tourist Arrested and Beaten for Wearing a Qatar Shirt to a Soccer Match in Abu Dhabi

It's incredible that Qatar was able to play, beat their geopolitical rivals Saudi Arabia and UAE, and that they had an actual fan in the stadium who dared to support them along the way. That man was punished. I have to think that this will be enough of an international embarrassment that the UAE will have to back down (though they can't un-beat the man). Nonetheless it's a good reminder that when you travel the world you're subject to the laws of wherever you've gone - even if you aren't aware...

I Have Never Heard of Utqiaġvik — Yet I Have Been There

During a break, I spotted a video called 5 Most Isolated Communities At The End Of The Earth; and curiosity got the best of me and compelled me to watch this video. As I watch the video, the isolated community which was labeled number two in the video is called Utqiaġvik — which is apparently pronounced oot-KEEG-vik — and it was called “the northernmost city in America and the ninth most northern city in the world.” The post I Have Never Heard of Utqiaġvik — Yet I Have Been There appeared first ...
