Why Working Remotely is Harder than You Think

Why Working Remotely is Harder than You Think Working Remotely – When my friends ask me what I do for work, I tell them that I am an independent writer and designer who works remotely for a few companies around the world.

The best things to see in New Haven

Anyone who has spent time in the Northeast — traveler, transplant, or otherwise — describes their location within the orbit of two cities: Boston and New York City, regardless of if they actually live in either. This is especially true of New Haven, Connecticut, situated less than two hours between both cities and easily reachable by train. While few people outside of Connecticut know anything about New Haven beyond Yale University, this small city is home to a thriving, multi-cultural commun...

Best hiking in the US

Urban hiking is no walk in the park. Somewhere between a gentle stroll and a spirited parkour session, urban hikes transform city streets, stairways, and sidewalks into metropolitan trails laced with both natural and cultural landmarks. Generally, the goal is to map a route that manages some elevation gain and takes advantage of whatever green spaces or nature retreats a city has to offer, all while keeping a brisk enough pace to get in a solid workout. Not all cities are particularly walkabl...

The best record stores in the US

Record store day is this Saturday, April 13, and if you’re reading this, that means that you are likely among the last bastion of badass music fans that actually care about the quality of the sound in your ears. While most cram trebled-out Spotify tunes through Bluetooth headphones, you are curled up on the futon next to a turntable and a pair of speakers drowning in a full spectrum of highs and lows that may have not even been recorded on a digital mixing board. For you, intrepid listener, t...

San Juan Chamula: Saints, Spirits and Sacrifice in Chiapas, Mexico

I wasn’t expecting to find a dualist heresy in rural Mexico, much less one governed and guided by narcos, but there it was in Chamula, a small town outside San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas. The town perches on the side of a mountain, roads plunging steeply to converge finally on the central square. At the heart of this shines a white building trimmed with green, surrounded by a low-walled plaza curiously empty of the street food vendors and craft sellers who lurk just beyond the gates. St...

If you do head there at some point, you've got three fine hotels to choose from. We just updated our review of one of them and reviewed another for the first time, so check out these options for your visit. There aren't a whole lot of air connections to Campeche from the U.S. and Canada, but you can get an ...

Off the Beaten Path in France, Where is it?

    I am often asked about France, it makes sense given that I live here and write a blog about it. When I travel to a new place I like to have a few facts about the place in my pocket too. A good restaurant, a must see or do sort of thing, where to stay... a few starting bits so that I have a foot on the ground when I arrive. The main question I am asked (outside of brocantes and where to stay) is about the secret spots, the hidden places, the off the beaten track... the real "France". I have ...

Maurice and I have long wanted to go to Japan and finally booked a tour in early April hoping to see the famous cherry trees in bloom. We are going on a group tour but arrived a couple of days early for a bit more time in Tokyo. There was a splendid sunset at the airport in Paris as we boarded.
