An Unexpected Daytrip to Sintra, Portugal

In the past, it has been an understatement to call me a travel over-planner. There is no term really to describe the levels to which I would typically plan the fun out of a trip. It always came from a good place, an excitement for the adventure coupled with the desire to not miss anything.

Truly understanding this theory of travel has taken me far longer than it ...

Finding Canadian Education Programs and Scholarships

by  Kevin Kamal Contrary to some perceptions, Canada is not equal to the winter season! Actually, all Canadian cities experience four seasons throughout the year. With its vast, beautiful geography, rich history of indigenous people, and a national policy for multiculturalism, Canada is a gem for prospective international students. Canada has a formalized immigration policy and annually welcomes approximately 250,000 immigrants. Canada is one of the few countries with a well-established path...

Things to do in Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn, the capital and largest city in the northern European country of Estonia, is an innovative and creative hub at the intersection of Northern and Eastern Europe.

Top 9 travel destinations for nature lovers in USA

City-life can be stressful. Living in concrete boxes can harm you. Surrounded by tall buildings, with hardly any sunlight creeping through, your commute each day is marred by constant honking and polluted air that is stifling to breathe through. Top it with a hectic work life and you have no time for yourself. Days will go by before you see greenery and plants or interact with animals other than a cat or a dog. Humans are not meant to live this way. Just like any other creature, we need the ri...

A ‘Japanese only’ restaurant due to the coronavirus outbreak

Recently, the owner of the Tokyo restaurant below opted for a ‘Japanese only’ policy due to the coronavirus outbreak. In his tweet announcing the decision, he was at pains to stress that it wasn’t in any way discriminatory. Instead, it was simply a way to try and protect his family, staff and the eatery’s customers. A controversial move it has to be said, but one that doesn’t seem to have affected business, as on Monday (a national holiday), there was a long line of people waiting to get in. Al...
