Save on Rental Cars Leaving Florida One Way Spring 2019 — But…

Exactly one year ago today, I wrote this article about how you can rent a car from Florida and drive it out one way to much of the eastern United States for a rental rate of as low as $8.45 per day, if you can position yourself to do so... ...but this year, the going rate is no less expensive than $14.95 per day — and that rate is only offered by...

Are Sandals Worn in the Louvre

  Heavenly soles at the Louvre.   After all these years of living in France, the Louvre never ceases to amaze me. If I lived in the Louvre I would feel the same way it is a feast for the eyes.         Whenever I go to the Lourve I like to focus on one thing and take photos of just that one thing for example; One time I took photos of frames, another time signatures, yet another time people taking photos of the Mona Lisa. This time I took photos of feet in sandals: Heavenly Soles.           Yo...

Feels like home!

As I write this, it's 7:18 AM and I am at Starbucks Powai outlet. There is yellow lights, the smell of freshly crushed coffee, AC at 22 (I guess) and not another soul here. Except for the Baristas, of course. And for all that it's worth, it feels like home. Really. More home than the place I live at. Or the place I lived at for years in Delhi. They were right when they said they would create the third place that people would keep coming back to. I keep coming back to it.I don't live close to thi...

Alcohol rules while flying

The TSA is strict when it comes to liquids. Anyone who’s flown in the last decade knows all liquids must be in 3.4-ounce or less sized bottles. A mini bottle of alcohol, conveniently, is around 1.7 ounces. Which has led plenty of budget-conscious fliers to wonder if it’s legal to bring and drink your own alcohol on a flight to avoid paying for the expensive in-flight drinks. While you can certainly get your minis through security, drinking them is another issue entirely. Federal Aviation Adm...

10 fun things to do in Faro in just one day

From the old city walls you get a glimpse of how Faro must have been, looking out over the shimmering silver water of the Ria Formosa lagoon, towards the distant sandbanks that shelter the city from the force of the ocean. Within the Vila-Adentro, Faro’s old town, the houses are closely packed in narrow streets that changed hands between the Moors and the Portuguese over the centuries. Now of course the town has extended much further and there are attractive pedestrianised shopping streets ...

Best late-night bars in Brooklyn

Manhattan is usually most people’s go-to when it comes to New York City nightlife. While you should definitely experience everything the island borough has to offer, from wine bars to dives to scenic rooftops, it’s worth getting out of the city for a night or two to experience the nightlife elsewhere. Brooklyn has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years and is most commonly known to visitors for being a hipster haven. While that’s true to a degree, and though it has led to the arri...

Where to eat at Hong Kong airport

The hardest part about deciding where to eat in the Hong Kong International Airport is choosing whether you want to get your food before going through security or after. Whichever you choose, there are outposts of Michelin-starred restaurants, luxury chains, and quality grab-and-go options. There are also plenty of fast food chains, but it’s too easy to avoid those and get one last taste of Hong Kong cuisine (as well as award-winning food from around China and Japan) before taking off. These ...

Sydney college mistaken for Hogwarts

There’s a rumor flying around Chinese tourist circles, one that has caught the eye of Harry Potter fans in particular.

How to travel to Turkmenistan

There’s a fiery pit in Turkmenistan’s Karakum Desert that’s been ablaze since 1971. Ever since Soviet geologists seeking oil mistakenly drilled into a cavern filled with natural gas. The rig collapsed, the pit opened up, and the scientists set it on fire to burn off the dangerous, leaking methane gas. That was over 40 years ago. Photo: JoostP/Shutterstock This scorching site is the Darvaza gas crater, but locals are more likely to call it the “Door to Hell” for obvious reasons. The same rea...
