20 Fun and Interesting Things to Do in Los Angeles with Kids

LA is the second biggest city in the USA, and as a visitor it seems like there are endless things to do in Los Angeles with kids! Over the years we’ve been able to visit Los Angeles several times. Firstly solo, then as a couple, and now with our two daughters, Kalyra and Savannah. To be honest we weren’t initially big fans, and it’s taken a while for LA to grow on us. Sometimes you have to visit a place a second or third or even forth time before you can appreciate it. I think it’s because we c...

Intercontinental Cartagena: No History, but Seaside Sunsets

There are several distinct lodging areas of Cartagena, Colombia to choose from and they can make a big difference in how you experience this historic port city. One of the best if you want to be on the water, with a big room, is the Intercontinental Cartagena that we reviewed recently. Many foreigners who come to Cartagena are coming for the history, the atmosphere, the architecture, and cobblestone streets. Others don't need to spend all day and night there though and would rather have a large...

Sake etiquette and traditions

If you’ve only ever tried sake at cheap sushi restaurants, you’d be forgiven for thinking that all sake is meant to be served hot and taken as a shot. But if you want to be taken seriously on your next trip to Japan, or even your local Japanese restaurant, you need to understand that sake is just as complex as any whiskey or wine. And more importantly, that the etiquette of drinking it in no way involves yelling “sake bomb!” and banging on the table until a shot of sake falls off of chopstick...

Shinjuku Tiger: The man and the movie poster

For regular visitors of Shinjuku, the sight of an older fella cycling the streets in a colourful, toy adorned outfit probably won’t come as a surprise. And considering the gentleman in question is Shinjuku Tiger, neither will his ubiquitous tiger mask. Having worn the mask and unique ensemble since 1972, he has understandably become a part of the landscape. In fact, considering how much Shinjuku has, and is changing, he’s arguably one of the entertainment district’s few constants. A factor that ...

The best things to do in Naples

Naples is usually thought of as a gateway to the beautiful Italian islands that lie a short sail away from its busy port. It’s rarely a destination in its own right. Many cruise tourists come home bemoaning the short time they spent in Naples before getting shuttled to the Amalfi Coast, knocking the city for its crowded streets, dilapidated buildings, and perceived danger — thanks to uptight, outdated guidebooks that would have you believe every person in Naples is out to rob you. Despite th...
