Transparent Suitcases – Yay or Nay?

The Rimowa X Off-White Transparent Carry-On Case has some rather obvious pros and cons. It’s just a question of which of them outweighs the other, and that’s completely subjective.Made from transparent yet extremely resilient and impact resistant PolyCarbonate, the carry-on suitcase is completely see-through, although the ribbing on the surface to give it structural integrity obscures one’s direct view of the insides of the suitcase. With accented black handles, wheels, and labeling on the handl...

And speaking of theaters...

This is the marquee outside the Olympia, probably the most famous and prestigious of Parisian music halls. The Beatles sang here. So did Simon and Garfunkel and the Rolling Stones, to name a few of the English-language acts. Countless French, Canadian, and Belgian stars have also performed at the Olympia. Ken and I have been several times over the years to see stars like Véronique Sanson, Serge Lama, Rock Voisine, and France Gall. The classic red neon lettering on the marquee above the entranc...

The Camino

Maurice loves walking the Camino, le Chemin, the Way. We did it together one time, he did it solo once, and this time Maurice did it with an American couple, mostly the man. They are friends of ours. I “met” the woman, Paulita, on the Internet through our blogs. We spent a week on the Camino staying at a different place each night-gites, B&B’s, hotels, farms-we stayed at all sorts of places.

The good news is that for every one of these overplayed, overhyped cities, new cities come along and fill the void they leave behind. That’s why we’re proclaiming these seven cities officially over f...

Part of the Sorbonne...

Unless you are a teacher or a student, normally you will not be allowed to enter this building  except when there is an art exhibition – and...  there is now one ongoing. This building houses the Faculty of Law of the Sorbonne University and you find it on Place de Panthéon. It seems that what you can see from the Place was part of an end-of-the-18thcentury project which also included what was supposed to become the Sainte-Géneviève church, but which finally became the Panthéon, with J-...

More than 80% of Americans trust them, according to BrightLocal research. A new study I just finished yesterday for my upcoming book with Daniel Lemin found that online reviews rank second—behind only friend and family recommendations—among the critical sources of information driving a consumer’s potential purchase.
