How to Stay Fit While Traveling

Many travelers are concerned about staying healthy and fit while traveling, and this is a very valid concern. If, at home, you have a good routine going that involves eating healthy and exercising regularly, the last thing you want to do is fall off the wagon during your trip. It’s common for many travelers to eat more unhealthy foods during their travels, or avoid exercising. The problem with falling off the wagon during a trip is that it’s very hard to get back into your healthy habits when y...

Ecological eating ... and drinking

“La Récyclérie” has been there since four or five years, but I visited for the first time last week – shame on me. We are at the “Porte de Clignancourt”, actually quite close to the famous Saint Ouen flea market (see my post here). Well, actually, the building has been there since 1869, it was one of the stations along the “Pettie Ceincture”, the circular railroad on which I have written several times (see here) and which was in operation until 1934. The station building was later u...

How to Convince Your Road Trip Partner to Do All the Driving

There’s nothing better than a road trip for relaxing, enjoying spectacular scenery, and taking great photographs – unless you’re the driver. Then, you face hours of monotony behind the wheel on long, straight roads. Even worse, you might have to negotiate less-than-ideal road conditions, such as hairpin turns with sharp drop-offs, while your passengers marvel at how beautiful the drive is. So, how do you go on a road trip if the thought of driving for long distances (or at all) doesn’t appeal to...

Many Visitors Miss the Rock Formations and Gorge of Brúarhlöð in Iceland

The mighty river — which is known as Hvitá — carved its way through the solid rock over the centuries to form the rock formations and the intricately entwined gorge known as Brúarhlöð, which is not all that far from the popular Golden Circle area of Iceland; but it is hidden and therefore its existence is unknown by tourists. With its origin directly underneath... The post Many Visitors Miss the Rock Formations and Gorge of Brúarhlöð in Iceland appeared first on The Gate.

10 Biggest and Most Important Traits of an Extraordinary Hotel Manager

Do you as a Hotel Manager find yourself standing at the crossroads in your career, either questioning yourself or finding it difficult to make decisions? Developing a Hotel leadership mindset has no relation to one’s career or job title. It has everything to do with the manner in which you interpret and perceive situations and events and subsequently make decisions. Meaning the thoughts that drive actions and result in specific outcomes. We, humans, are constantly evaluating our current conditi...

The future of flying

From 3500 feet up California is a glorious patchwork quilt of green and gold, textured by rippling mountains and shining water. Ahead of us we see the Carquinez Bridge and the Bay; behind us, the fingers of Lake Berryessa curl into the steep hills. Twenty minutes ago I stood barefoot in the soft grass on the bank of one of those narrow coves, many miles from any road. Twenty minutes from now I will be driving to Five Guys for lunch. “Hey,” I think to myself, “even a flying car couldn’t do this.”...

Polynesian tattoos: Out of Tonga, into the world

Tattooing is not a Polynesian invention, but it clearly developed into a fine art in the Pacific Islands. Ö tzi, the fellow who died in the ice in the Italian Alps 5,300 years ago had dozens of tattoos. And his death predates the development of Polynesian culture. Ötzi's 61 tattoos were generally geometric forms. Crosses and stripes and rows of lines. Early Egyption mummies had tattoos as well. But tattooing certainly developed dramatically during the Polynesian period. A new paper on Po...

Hawaii for Lovers

Hawaii is calling. For many Americans this is their one big, lifetime, bucket-listed dream destination.   Being a US state- the language, transportation, currency and in large part- the culture is similar to the mainland. Plus, its relatively close: Hawaii is a mere 190 million inches away for Los Angeles.  That math translates to a simple 6 hour flight to paradise.  Recently Southwest airlines announced that they will begin service to Honolulu.  The starting price you ask?  $49 (one way,...

American’s Chicken Salad Lunch: New Worst Airline Meal Ever?

If you choose the salad, here's a sample of the chicken as seen on American Airlines flight AA644, the 1 p.m. departure from Charlotte to Austin on Friday. Perhaps this is the reason airline President Robert Isom says their caterers have "gotten a little bit lazy in terms of what they can provide us." Unfortunately it doesn't seem he's done enough about it. Continue reading American’s Chicken Salad Lunch: New Worst Airline Meal Ever?...
