Reasons to visit Tbilisi, Georgia

Tbilisi is the colorful capital of Georgia, a country at the crossroads of Europe and Asia.

Its tumultuous history and mix of cultures make Tbilisi an eclectic, multicultural, and modern city.

What is fractional ownership

Millennials may have ruined a lot, but they have made sharing cool again. Undoing the Boomers’ hard work during the “Me” decade of the 1980s, sharing has returned to fashion. Rideshares. Boat-shares. Communal tables. Conventional wisdom says sharing is back, baby! Except for one place: timeshares. Timeshares still come with a seedy connotation of unscrupulous realtors luring in unsuspecting people in with promises of free side-by-side refrigerators. Then after a three-hour high-pressure sales p...

It has stunning, near-empty beaches; ethereal mountains; a rich history. and budget-friendly prices. It’s hard not to be drawn in by this mysterious nation, the homeland of Mother...

The quiet intimacy of an old Tokyo bar

Last year, I posted this series of photos from Shinjuku’s Omoide Yokocho, or Piss Alley as it’s often known. Along with the images, I also tried to explain how the huge increase in tourism over the last few years has changed it — or at least sort of changed it anyway. Basically it’s way busier than it used to be, and yes, the atmosphere can be quite different. But then again, go there on the right day, at the right time, and the alleyway’s former intimacy can still be found, complete with fasci...
