Where the Green Grass Grows

    Rusty and worn, though young at heart, the two chairs sat side by side.  Weathering seasons of sun and storm. They wiggled their toes in the mud, leaned on each other when their steps were uneven, Had each other's backs, do you see their hearts? Their friendship stayed true to where the green grass grew.             [Author: French la Vie]

Best things to see in Kraków, Poland

While the Second World War brought destruction to all other major cities in Poland, the buildings of the city of Kraków in the south of the country largely escaped the fighting and bombings. In 1978, the entirety of Kraków’s old town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, a clear indicator that travelers should not skip this city. Here are nine sights that prove Kraków is the most stunning city in Poland. 1. The Cloth Hall Photo: Tomasz Mazon/Shutterstock In the middle of one of the m...

Hiking near Eastern European cities

Castle ruins. Blooming wildflowers. Goulash. All three are common in Eastern Europe during spring, and trekking the high ranges that criss-cross many of the region’s 25 countries is the best way to experience at least two of the three. Mid-to-late spring is an optimal time to get over there because the tourist flocks that swarm Europe during the summer months are still bundled up around the fireplace back home. From cities in Poland to Montenegro, these urban destinations offer easy access to...

Google Fi – A Transformation of Cell Phone Service

Google Fi is a wonderful new type of cell phone service, and at a wonderfully affordable price. Google has profoundly changed many parts of our world.  Its eponymous search engine, of course.  Its Gmail service, which now dominates the email field the same way Google’s search engine dominates search.  Other things are not so obvious but still important – for example, it “rewrote the book” on how to monetize and advertise on the internet with its Adsense and Adwords programs.One of its new ventur...

Best bridges in the United States

Bridges seem to captivate people more than any other structures, not only as engineering marvels that connect previously separated areas but also as local icons that become unmistakable parts of a city. They’re places to relax, places to hone your photography skills, and sometimes places to beat your head against the steering wheel when stuck in traffic. But they always bring a sense of wonder and a little bit of closeness to the water. So it’s no wonder that bridges are among the most photog...
