Mother and Son

  Yann's mother, my Belle Mere or known as Bonne Maman (her grandmother's name) turned 90 last September. Imagine that she took a train from Rennes to the French Alps where she spent time alone, hiking, reading and breathing in the fresh air, then went to Vichy by train to spend time with her sister in law, then took another train to the French Riviera to be with her nephew and his family, then flew to Corisca to visit... and after two months of being young, free, and a bit wild flew to Marsei...

Canada’s top tech jobs forecast for 2020

By  Shelby Thevenot A look at the tech jobs projected to be in high demand, and the skilled-tech worker's employers will be hiring this year. The high demand for tech talent in Canada is rolling into 2020 as experts start to predict the sector’s outlook for the new year.

Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) extended its tech pi...

Flight Shaming: Is Flying Bad for the Environment?

Posted: 1/21/2020 | January 20th, 2020 As people become more conscious of their environmental impact on the world, there’s been an increased focus on air travel — and, over the past year, a corresponding increase in “flight shaming”. The term is coined from the Swedish flygskam, which means “flight shame” i.e. you personally feel shame about flying but, unsurprisingly, it has devolved into shaming others for flying due to its carbon footprint. After all, there is no denying that flying increas...

5 Of The Best Locations For Casino Lovers

There is simply no denying that gambling and sports betting is at an all-time high right now. Not only are more and more people partaking in these activities, but more and more states are actually legalizing the practice. While this might seem like something that has been long-awaited, this is just the beginning. That being said, the widespread availability of gambling and sports betting isn’t going to help when it comes to choosing the perfect destination to do either. In fact, it will likely ...

How to Get a Good Airbnb Deal Anywhere in the World

Since its founding in 2008, Airbnb has gone from strength to strength, taking the tourism industry by storm.

3 Savvy Ways To Enjoy Traveling On Your Own Later in Life

Around 22 percent of all Americans who plan to travel in the next 12 months are Baby Boomers aged 55 and above. According to a 2018 survey by Travelport, people younger than this age group are more cautious about planning their future vacations and are also less likely to prioritize travel plans when they have young children. Senior travelers, on the other hand, often look for age-appropriate travel destinations to suit their lifestyle. They can either go on city tours or enjoy the great outdoo...

A walk around my neighbourhood. In this view from our apartment I’ve become interested in the church you can see with the tall steeple sticking up and decided to walk over and have a look. It’s called Eglise Saint Léon. It has a straight strip of lights going up the steeple that we can see at night but I couldn’t see it up close during the day.

Worst cities for bed bugs

“Don’t let the bedbugs bite” is a saying so cliche it’s almost lost all meaning, but that doesn’t mean bed bugs aren’t a real issue in many cities across the US. Indeed, according to a ranking of the top 50 US cities for bed bugs by pest control company Orkin, the bed bugs are biting all over the place, maybe even in places where we least expected it. According to the study, which examined cities where the most bed bug treatments were performed in 2019, some of America’s largest cities are am...

What to do in Boston’s Little Italy

It sounds like something a drunk Red Sox fan would scream outside Yankee Stadium to incite a riot. “The best Little Italy is in Boston” isn’t just an inflammatory remark meant to piss off New Yorkers — it’s a sentiment familiar to many who have visited the small neighborhood in Boston’s North End and enjoyed its unique character, cuisine, and aesthetic. Chances are, when you think of Boston, you’re thinking of Little Italy. Cobbled streets, waterfront promenades, and historic churches define...

Two Award Booking Requests Where I Failed to Deliver and One Where I Refused to Help

We've had thousands of successfully booked awards. Things aren't as easy as when I started. I once helped a family of 7 fly together non-stop roundtrip in Lufthansa first class. Getting started booking awards during the Great Recession with airline premium cabins empty and award space plentiful made it seem like this would always be easy. Now it's harder work, and there are more tradeoffs. Sometimes all we can offer are connections and a passenger will only fly non-stop. My job is to explai...

A little Japanese bar down a mostly disused old tunnel

Down an old and now more or less disused tunnel, one little bar remains. Catering for the small number of late afternoon drinkers who can squeeze inside, it’s the last business left, but even after several decades of serving drinks and really quite delicious food, the owners have no intention of quitting just yet. A decision that’s much appreciated by both the very regular regulars, and those that merely pop in unexpectedly.
