For the love of Amba: How I came to eat swarma with a cabbie in Tel Aviv

“Now you are not a customer, you are a friend. I can smoke,” Ofer, my uber driver turned friend said to me as he leant over to swipe his phone, turning off the metre. As he quickly flicked open the box that was in his shirt pocket, he turned to me, in as much as one can turn in a car seat, “Want a cigarette?“ I was back in Israel again a lot sooner than I had expected. In fact, I only left two-weeks prior thinking I’d be back in July. Instead I was back after one of my guides to Hebron messag...

You probably have one electricity supplier for your house. But these days the average household could probably buy form several such companies, it just can’t easily access the market place of possible suppliers.

Best doughnuts from around the world

Food isn’t, and never has been, limited by borders or boundaries. The things we eat travel as we do, flying across oceans and into the cultures and diets of their new homes, adapting along the way. But there may be no single food item that’s made its way into every corner of the world quite like the doughnut. Fried dough has been consumed for long enough to be found as fossilized pieces at ancient Native American sites. These days, it’s everywhere in one variation or another. In fact, forms o...

100 years of Bauhaus: Berlin and beyond

As Germany celebrates the centenary of the influential art movement, we tour the cities where it started, flourished and, ultimately, proved too ‘degenerate’ for the NazisUnder a leaden winter sky, the low-rise residential blocks in Berlin’s Hansa Quarter couldn’t be called pretty. Built in the late 1950s to revive a district razed during the second world war, they’re boxy and unadorned. The trees are skeletal, the gardens bare. But when I look up, I see upkeep and pride. Smart furnishings are v...

  How funny that out of thousands of things at a brocante fair a charm that size of my fingernail could grab my attention. This green daisy or Margurite in French has two parts, a cover that turns around a stationary part the has words written on each petal. The finely printed words I could not read when I bought it, but I took a chance that it would convey a sweet secret and I wasn't wrong.  On the petals are written, "I love you with all my heart." It sure beats that game of plucking petals a...

Things to see and do in Berlin

Berlin is a fascinating city that stands out among the great capital cities of Europe. It was a city that was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, then rebuilt in two halves, and then stitched back together again when the city was re-unified. As a result of the Berlin Wall and the former city of two halves, Berlin doesn’t truly have a city centre. With the city being so spread out and without an obvious centre it’s worth doing some private Berlin tours first with a local gu...

Traditional Mardi Gras foods

Mardi Gras, Carnaval , Fat Tuesday — whatever you call it, the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent is a time of eating and drinking in excess. Religious or not, people who attend Mardi Gras parties see levels of consumption matched only by holidays like Thanksgiving, only a much, much rowdier Thanksgiving. Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday (the 47th day before Easter), but the total season is longer than just one day. The season technically starts on January 6, the Christian holi...

An Honest Review of Gay Dating Apps

Everyone has an opinion on the gay apps. They’ve become so ubiquitous and ingrained in our popular culture, they’re impossible to resist.
