Guide to Greenland's national dress

Any mention of Greenland may bring to mind a frozen terrain devoid of trees and a dreary landscape, but the reality is entirely different than what our imagination has crafted. Granted the flora is not as brightly hued as what you’d find further south, and the weather is rarely clement. But the nation is far from being uncolored or dull, and the national costume is the best proof there is to sustain this argument. Greenland’s national dress is incredibly vibrant and intricate. Its unique aes...

10 must-see Mediterranean cruise ports

A Mediterranean cruise is the Whitman’s Sampler of journeys. A taste of Santorini here, a nibble of Naples there, a morsel of Mykonos this day and a bite of Barcelona that day. And like with a box of chocolates, first-timers never know what they’re gonna get. That is, unless they do their research or take the advice of those both experienced and honest. Queue the discerning sea-legged travel writer with a list of his top 10 Mediterranean ports: Built nearly 2,000 years ago, the Roman Colosse...

Why Eliminating Award Charts is the Wrong Way to Do Revenue-Based Redemption

There's a real problem that programs are facing, how to deliver award seats in a world where planes are full and airlines aren't growing faster than the economy? If there aren't unsold seats on desirable flights the model breaks down. The answer though isn't to move towards low value redemptions where a mile is worth a penny. That's giving up. Fortunately it's not really an either-or proposition. In fact United's own experience with revenue-based redemptions shows that this new model can eas...

Taxidermy library in Anchorage

If you want to check out a book, you go to the nearest public library. If you want to check out a piece of taxidermy, you go to the Alaska Resources Library and Information Services (ARLIS) at the University of Alaska Anchorage campus. The library houses hundreds of taxidermied specimens, from fawns to snowy owls, sandhill cranes, and harlequin rockfish. Unsurprisingly, it’s the only known library in the US to contain such a collection, as well as lend the pieces to anyone with an Anchorage p...

Guide to live music in Manchester

If High Fidelity were a British film, Manchester is where it would have taken place. The city is the United Kingdom’s equivalent to Chicago, a major metropolis that would be too often overlooked if it didn’t have a booming music scene to fill in the colors. Indeed, the UK’s musical legacy would be far weaker without the Warehouse City’s contributions. London had the Sex Pistols, but Manchester had the Buzzcocks, who actually invited the Pistols up to Manchester for the first time. London gave...

Where to eat and drink at DFW

Dallas-Fort Worth is full of good places to eat, and its airport is no different.

Best beaches in Patagonia, Argentina

While South America has some of the most diverse natural landscapes in the world, among the greatest draws to the continent’s distinguished natural beauty are its beaches. Splayed along the Pacific, Atlantic, and Carribean coastlines, the most recognizable South American beaches are in Brazil, Colombia, and the like. The coastlines of Argentina don’t typically make the list of the best beaches on the continent, and most travelers certainly don’t think of Patagonia as a place to bask in the su...

Limited-Time Free Opportunity: 5% Rebate on Discounted Hotels, Airfare, and More

Despite marketing claims by the big chains, you can often get a better price on a hotel booking through third party websites. That's even more the case with independent hotels. What I've found is that the more expensive the hotel the greater likelihood you can find a deal through a small online travel agency website. You'll usually give up hotel loyalty points and elite status credit, but you may receive other perks. At a minimum it's worth checking before you book. Right now there's a new ...

Toddler attacked by dingoes

On Thursday night , a toddler was attacked by two dingoes in a remote area of Queensland’s Fraser Island in Australia. The boy’s family had been camping in K’gari when the dingoes broke into their campervan while they slept and dragged the toddler from his bed. According to paramedic Ben Du Toit, the parents “awoke with the toddler crying and heard the crying getting further away from the campervan.” The father ran outside, fought off the dingoes, and rescued his son from one of their jaws.

Best hotel libraries

Even for those who love books, a good library is usually not one of the most sought-after hotel amenities. But if you’re on vacation, or even traveling for business, sometimes it’s nice to have a handy resource for downtime reading material or just a place to escape the chaos of a big work trip or family vacation. Though they’re not as popular as hotel gyms, hotel libraries are still becoming a point of pride for many properties around the world. Here are 11 you should, obviously, check out. ...
