"Renoir's Garden"

“Monet’s Garden” in Giverny (see my posts here) is certainly more known than “Renoir’s Garden” in Paris. (... and this garden is definitely less famous for its water lilies … despite the top picture.) What is referred to as “Renoir’s Garden” is actually part of the green space which now surrounds the Montmartre Museum and on which I have posted several times, see e.g. here, here, here and here. We can learn that Renoir lived and worked here for a short time around 1876 (two years...

Celebrating Mothers with Italian Passion

Italy has been celebrating mothers for more than 2000 years. As the dark, cold winter gave way to the bright rebirth of Spring, the ancient Romans paid tribute to their gods of fertility. One holiday, Matronalia, was dedicated to Juno, the queen of the gods, and children gave gifts to their mothers on this day. Traditionally la festa della mamma in Italy fell on May 8. The current practice of celebrating Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May started in 1957. But la mamma italiana is the cent...

Editorial: My Concern About How Travel, Miles and Points Are Reported

Something which has been on my mind for quite some time has been causing me some concern — and that is the evolution of journalism overall in the day and age of electronic media. Information — real or fake — is easier than ever to disseminate with the use of social media; and the double-edged sword of mixed blessings it has created has eventually led to the increasingly difficulty of the struggle to survive for many traditional media outlets. This, in turn, has led to fewer journalists reporting...

Top 10 cheap things to do in Auckland, New Zealand

As locals, we don’t always appreciate all that Auckland has to offer. Somehow, we don’t see the attractive architecture of the city centre or the green spaces that appear everywhere you look. We’re blind to the white-sand beaches and the clean air. But a city that has one of the highest standards of living in the world also has a lot to offer the casual tourist – and a lot... Source

Rugged, romantic and traditional but still with a huge sense of fun, the Emerald Isle is a place to visit for unspoilt scenic landscapes, a warm welcome and a perfect pint of the black stuff.

Life Without Toys – Minimalist Family Travel

Is our travel life truly toy free? Nope. We’re not purists. But we are traveling with 99.9% fewer toys than we had at home, and our choice of toys has changed significantly. So, we’ve got stuff. It’s just different stuff than you might expect. At first, our paring down of child paraphernalia was an act of necessity – we simply could not carry a bundle of toys around the globe. That meant parting with many beloved staples- the ukulele that Bird got for his second birthday, Spider Monkey’s “fast” ...

pupdate: diego progress report

Diego seems to be doing all right. He's able to hobble around on three legs pretty well. The incision looks good, and so far he's leaving it alone, so we don't have to make him even more uncomfortable by putting a giant cone around his giant head. I say he seems to be all right because he's so quiet and sad. He can stand on three legs to eat his food, and he hobbles around the yard on-leash, but getting from standing up to lying down is a nightmare. It can take him 30 or 45 minutes to figur...
