The cat is back!

In a post I wrote soon four years ago (see here), I wrote about the black cat, "Le Chat Noir" , a famous cabaret which existed between 1881 and 1897. I'm afraid the cabaret closed forever, but the people behind the cabaret also published a weekly newspaper with the same name... and the newspaper is now back, until further on a monthly basis, and the number 9 will soon be published.  The previous one which was published between 1882 and 1897 had some very famous contributors with writers li...

The Spectacular Border Crossing Between Argentina and Chile – Stuck on Top of the Andes Before 28 Hairpin Turns

Everywhere in the world, border crossing can be a long process. “Well, that’s gonna take forever,” I mutter to myself, counting the number of buses ahead of us, waiting to enter the Complejo Los Libertadores, the immigration checkpoint between Argentina and Chile. The bus stops. It’s not going to be quick and easy. It’s okay. I don’t mind being stuck on top of the Andes, between Argentina and Chile. The scenery is spectacular.

Tallest observation decks

Observation deck pictures are always tricky. Even if you’ve got a steady hand to hold a panoramic shot, inevitably some school group or busload of tourists will wander into your frame and give your picture a nice, fanny-packed blur. Such is the challenge with visiting Chicago’s Willis Tower or the Space Needles of the world, where hundreds of other people are clambering for the same 360 degrees. But in many tourist-packed cities and lesser-known destinations, you’ll find observation decks tha...

Wine tasting in Virginia

Wine wasn’t the first thing on the minds of the initial English settlers who reached the shores of Jamestown in 1607, but it also wasn’t the last. Captain John Smith wrote about America’s native grapes just two years later, kicking off interest in what would eventually become the oldest wine growing region in the US. More than 400 years later, wine is still very much on the minds of Virginians — one might say more now than ever before. Virginia is the sixth largest wine grape producer in the...

Deciding to travel around the world is one of the most liberating things you can do.

All about Cornish pasties

Many cuisines have a dish that consists of a sweet or savory filling wrapped in a bread shell. Empanadas, for example, are found throughout Portugal, Spain, and much of Latin America, and calzones, though usually larger, serve a similar purpose in Italy. Arguably the most fervently loved version of this portable filled-bread food category, however, is the pasty. The pasty (rhymes with “nasty”) is a traditional workingman’s meal from Cornwall, England. It’s traditionally made with beef, diced ...
