Recent TV (April 2019)

I’m not quite sure what my love of Killing Eve‘s Villanelle says about me. In recent years, the majority of my TV watching has been of the streaming variety, mostly binged from Netflix. I did notice that I’m watching a few series on a weekly basis this month, and here they are. Doom Patrol. I thought the Titans series was pretty good, and my favorite episode from its first season was the one that starred the Doom Patrol. Because of that, I was incredibly hyped for this series, and so it...

Why Waikiki? It's Hawaii to Da Max

Most people's image of Waikiki Beach on Oahu is summarized by a thousand words in the photo above: lot's of tender flesh elbow to jowl on a strip of artificial sand backed by square blocks of high-rise resorts, designed shops, eateries, and weirdness run amok. And that image is pretty much true. (And what's wrong with that?) But the roots of Hawaii literally run through the place, on the Waikiki Historic Trail. You can bus in from the airport and spend a vacation on foot and riding trolle...

Is Travel Safe in the Wake of Disaster?

At the age of twenty I visited Israel. It was one of the first times tourism and the ideas of safety and security merged in my travel journey. Upon returning home, I vividly recall describing my experiences interacting with soldiers on public buses, the idea of mandatory military service, and how I was deeply affected by conversations with families living on a kibbutz whose homes were daily targets of militants. None of us is alone when we ask, “Is it safe to travel in the face of terrorism?” Wh...

Be Careful About Returning Rental Cars During Late Hours…

I have already cautioned about returning a rental car after hours during the time when a rental car facility is closed, which is based on my personal experience; but you should apparently also be careful when returning a rental car during late hours when the rental car facility is open as well. No one was available at the rental car facility at Orlando International Airport when... The post Be Careful About Returning Rental Cars During Late Hours… appeared first on The Gate.

Gilded Age mansions in Florida

Florida generally gives about as much regard to its history as its people do to common sense. That said, though the state has bulldozed much of its past for condos, some of the grandest structures ever built in America still remain there. Even before the advent of air conditioning, Florida was a popular winter retreat for wealthy northerners, particularly during the period between the Civil War and the Great Depression, much of which is known as the “Gilded Age.” During this time, grand pala...

Whitewater rafting in Zambia

Zambia is commonly referred to as the “Adventure Capital” of Africa, and whitewater rafting down the Zambezi River is the adventure of a lifetime. Getting their energy from the world’s largest waterfall, the rapids of the Zambezi are some of the most challenging — and most thrilling — you’ll find anywhere on earth. On the list of extreme sports, rafting the Zambezi River should be its own category. Victoria Falls — the smoke that thunders Photo: Vadim Petrakov/Shutterstock The mighty Zamb...

Traditional Betawi Indonesian food

Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia and a place where you can find a variety of people from across Indonesia and abroad. The country’s motto, after all, is Bhinneka Tunggal Ika, or “Unity in Diversity.” People from all over have brought their culinary traditions and made the city an exciting place to eat. Perhaps because of this diversity, Jakarta’s own ethnic group, the Betawi, can get overlooked. But the people, and their food, have influences well worth noting. The origin of the Betawi goe...

US cities you can drink in public

Sometimes the itch to drink outside is so strong that not even a fenced-in patio can satiate the urge. For better or worse, the vast majority of municipalities in the United States have forbidden the practice of drinking on the street. But a few stalwarts remain standing for the casual public consumer of cold ones. These nine US cities allow you to break through the confines and stretch your legs with a walk about the neighborhood, drink in hand. 1. Canton, Ohio Photo: Henryk Sadura/Shutte...
