LGBTQ guide to Washington, DC

When you think of Washington, DC, perhaps you flash to a photo of the capitol building and the White House. Maybe you picture a crowded senate floor or a news anchor standing in front of the Supreme Court. DC might not, however, be one of the first places you think of when you think of LGBTQ+ travel destinations. That’s not entirely DC’s fault since first and foremost it’s the capital of the United States and is typically associated with lawmaking and politics. But if you peel back a few of t...

Where to see rocket launches 2020

Rocket launches aren’t just for Florida anymore. Noting that the second-most-popular tourist attraction in Central Florida is the massive Kennedy Space Center, the rest of America — and the world – has begun developing tourism around the awe-inspiring experience of watching a rocket shoot into space. And many of them are in places worth visiting for more than just the launch. Though our American launch pads are easily the most accessible, if you were planning a trip to South America, Japan, o...

Travel: Peel back the centuries in St. Augustine, America’s oldest city

My family finally took a long-awaited trip in December to St. Augustine, America’s oldest consistently populated city in the continental United States, established by Spain in 1565. This enchanting city on Florida’s Atlantic coast, oozing with old-world charm, did not disappoint. Our only mistake was not staying longer and seeing more of the city’s sights and beaches. St. Augustine has earned some well-deserved accolades in the travel industry. In 2018, Conde Nast Traveler included St. Augustine...

Where to stop on Margarita Mile

Move over, pub crawls, there’s a new boozy tour in town, or at least there is in Dallas. It’s no wonder that the city that invented the frozen Margarita machine has a self-guided tour on which this frosty beverage is the star of the show. Although Carlos Herrera invented the Margarita in 1938 at his Baja California restaurant Rancho La Gloria, the machine that mixes icy Margs first appeared in Dallas in 1971. With a dedicated app and signature cocktails for participants to taste, the Margarit...

Modern veggie burger, ancient roots

Amanda Cohen’s veggie burger at her latest venture, Lekka, is, as she puts it, “sort of a secret.” The coy restaurateur, known for her vegan tasting menu restaurant Dirt Candy, will only divulge to me that a collaboration between Cohen and a historian, during which she prepared 900-year-old Chinese dishes, inspired the recipe. A little research, however, reveals that Cohen’s veggie burger is based on yuguanfei, a vegetarian, mock-meat likely invented during the Song Dynasty. “Rice cultured wi...

NGO sending on birthright trip

Ta-Nehisi Coates mused, in his 2015 book, Between the World and Me, about the nature of the relationship between black Americans and travel. “It had never occurred to me to leave America — not even temporarily,” he says, elaborating that a friend of his “once said that he used to think of traveling as a pointless luxury, like blowing the rent check on a pink suit.” Black Americans still struggle to find access to the same avenues and institutions available to other Americans. We have been ba...

Driving in China: Defying Death as a Foreigner

For anybody who has visited China, it probably seems ridiculous to think that anything good could come from the chaotic Chinese traffic. But I can honestly say that thanks to my time driving in China, I’ve become a better driver. Here’s a brief explanation of how. Recently, I received the one official Chinese document that has proved to be more difficult than any visa I have ever applied for: …my Chinese driver’s license. The process of getting a Chinese driver’s license was con...

How China Taught Me To Drive Better

Late last year I received the one official document that proved to be more elusive than any visa I have ever applied for: my Chinese driver’s license. Understandably, my family and friends were concerned.  Drivers on the Asian continent have a reputation for being dangerous, and that’s not without a bit of truth.  In 2006 the number of fatal deaths on Chinese roads was double that of the United States, despite the fact that the U.S. reportedly had four times as many licensed cars.  Safety is ...

Oh brother(s)

I hadn't slept since getting up on Friday morning for my flights, about thirty hours when you count the time difference. But I was mighty hungry. I brewed a cup of coffee in the hotel room; it was equipped with one of those Keurig one-cup coffee machines. I texted my brothers and they were up and ready to eat, too, so we went to a nearby breakfast place. I had a bacon and avocado omelette and a toasted English muffin. Breakfast in America. My sister's husband used my camera to take this photo...

Jennifer Garner Practicing Ballet On A San Francisco Airport Moving Walkway

Some people like Jennifer Garner for her work in TV's Alias while others appreciate her more for 13 Going On 30. She's been described as 'America's Sweetheart' though I just like her for endorsing the Capital One Venture card. Ms. Garner has her own unique take on travel. For instance here's how Jennifer Garner packs for a trip (she loves her sweatpants). And put her on a moving walkway?

The Ultimate Insider’s Guide to Hilton Head Golfing Paradise

Back in 1663, England-born Captain William Hilton began to survey a 42-square-mile island off the Carolina coast. Although the area had previously been visited by the Native American and Spanish explorers, it would eventually be dubbed Hilton Head, after this mariner. Later in its history, the barrier island would become home to more than 20 plantations. And it would go on to play a role in the Civil War. Union forces would occupy the land for several years. Even later, in the 1950s, lumber mil...

US LGBTQ and Pride events in 2020

Let’s get one thing straight — LGBTQ people know how to throw one hell of a party, and in the United States, there’s no shortage of creativity when it comes to curating a queer shindig. From ski-slope soirees to fetish-themed festivals, the only thing more difficult than choosing which events to attend in 2020 is choosing who to vote for in the Democratic primary. Luckily, choosing from this list of epic LGBTQ gatherings is a win-win situation. Editor’s note: Queer culture doesn’t begin and e...

However, this did not occur, even after a tumultuous 4Q18 where many experts were calling for a downturn. Although America's nancial system has been bueted by a slowing global economy and the U.S. instigated trade war with China, it has been buoyed by the lowest unemployment levels during the past 50 years, and rising incomes which have fueled consumer spending and a generally opt...

Cycling the Pacific Coast

The idea to tour the Pacific coast by bike came to me slowly, in pieces. I wanted to challenge myself physically and mentally. I wanted to see the world with a minimal carbon footprint. Most of all, I wanted to travel alone, sure the experience would change me for the better. Ideas percolated for a year or so before I came across the Bicycling the Pacific Coast guidebook by Vicky Spring and Tom Kirkendall. The route looked challenging but popular enough to be safe for solo travel. That settled i...

Touring the road to Hana with Valley Isle Excursions

The road to Hana is a very twisty journey through a lush rainforest with beautiful waterfalls, valleys, black sand beaches and much more to explore. It’s a picturesque day of adventure that’s one of the must-do activities of Maui. As we were planning our excursions for the NCL Pride of America cruise around Hawaii, we thought it would be fun to tour the road to Hana again. We’ve toured the road several times on our own and also took a small, independent tour, but not taken a tour with one of th...

Most endangered plants in the US

A lot better than you think, most likely, but the problem is you’ll likely never get to smell either of those because they are gravely endangered.

Anatomy of a Modern Chinese Wedding

We’ve been to a wedding before and given a brief overview, but we’ve decided to be a little more detailed this time around. Please keep in mind as you read that we are referring to ...
