Best ramen instant noodle flavors

American’s perception of ramen has come a long way since being viewed as the dietary staple of college students, artists, and everyone else who’s ever had to return Christmas presents to pay rent. Today, Asian noodle dishes from Chinese hot pots to Japanese ramen are foodie favorites. Late-night noodle shops are springing up all over the country and inspiring countless slurp shots on Instagram and gimmicks like glow-in-the-dark ramen from restaurants trying to attract said Instagrammers.

This Contraption Holds Your Baby While You Pee  

Japan, how are you so smart? When I traveled to Tokyo last week with a few other members of the Lifehacker team, I went to use the restroom at a shopping center. Inside the stall was a contraption that, as the mother of an infant, almost made me cry (jet lag and hormones, man). It was a seat to hold your baby. Um, …Read more...

Hokkaido Skiing: The Fabulous Kiroro Resort Experience

Did you know that skiing in Japan is some of the best on the planet, especially on the island of Hokkaido? Try to picture what 21 metres or 69 feet of snow looks like.

Brazil to Allow Entry With No Visa to Citizens of the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan

“Brazil has taken a step in the right direction, in my opinion, as I have long asserted that if a country wants to increase tourism, it needs to relax its reciprocity fees or visa requirements. Two examples of countries which did just that are Chile and Argentina.” What you just read was an opinion which I wrote in this article on Monday, January 29, 2018 — and my suggestion is coming true: effective as of Monday, June 17, 2019, the government of Brazil will permit citizens of the United States,...

Best things to do in Tampa, Florida

Going to Florida for vacation has been an American tradition since the invention of air conditioning. But for business? Outside of Latin American finance and quote-unquote “exotic” imports, folks usually didn’t come down this way to do anything that resembled “serious.” But that’s changed in the past couple of decades, and as business in Florida booms so does the number of people who come here for work. Since the sunshine state was a vacation destination to begin with, it’s also the perfect p...

History of popular condiments

Condiments can make or break a meal. They’re the addition that saves a dry sandwich and the extra touch that spices up a bit of sushi. No matter what you’re eating, there always seems to be a condiment on the side that is there to at least improve a dish, if not save it entirely. It’s something that has been done throughout history — something that’s immediately clear as soon as you take a deeper look at where your favorite condiments come from. This is how your favorite condiments came to do...

A unique old clothes shop on a shuttered Japanese high street

Away from Japan’s big cities, the combination of a shrinking population and urban migration are having a visibly devastating effect. Once thriving towns are now all too often little more than sad reminders of the past, with shops shuttered up and former essentials such as train services slowly disappearing. A phenomenon I documented just recently in this photo essay: Looking for the lost. Of course not everything closes, and life does go on for the generally older residents who remain, meaning a...

Most popular whiskeys in the world

Whiskey is one of the world’s most beloved spirits. It’s both sipped neat and mixed into cocktails, savored and taken as a shot alongside a pint of beer. With this level of universal popularity, it should come as no surprise that countries around the world make the spirit. Each does things a little differently, making exploring the world through a dram or glass all too easy to do. Quick note: America, Ireland, and Mexico use the spelling “whiskey.” Everywhere else goes with the English spelli...

In February of this year, we traveled to Sapporo, in Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido, to see the annual Sapporo Ice Festival.

Every year, teams of designers and ice sculptors come from around the world to fashion their stunning ice creations. 1 Around two million people travel to no...

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...

Where to Eat in Antigua Guatemala – and More!

This post Where to Eat in Antigua Guatemala – and More! appeared first on The Professional Hobo. When a sailor friend ( on whose boat I lived for a while in the Caribbean) sent me a message asking where my traveling hat was currently parked, I wrote back “Guatemala! I’m currently in Antigua. It’s gorgeous.” “I don’t get it,” he replied. “Where are you – Antigua, or Guatemala? You just said you were in both.” Written like a true sailor, his version of Antigua is a Caribbean island. But if you go...

MUJI X Sensible 4’s Self-Driving Bus premiered in Finland. We got a chance to sit in it!

It’s only natural that the world’s first fully autonomous self-driving bus would come out of Finland. Finland, believe it or not, is often considered to be the ‘Silicon Country’ that gave the world Nokia and pretty much set the very blueprint for mobile communications. Nokia was founded in Finland, and for over two grand decades before Apple launched the iPhone, Nokia was the standard to beat. In fact, there’s a high likelihood that your first phone was a Nokia (I know mine was). Post-2010 whe...

Truffle Hunting in Tuscany: in the woods, with a dog, digging for tartufo

The truffle hunter, much like his cousin the porcini hunter, is a lone beast. Out at the crack of dawn with his faithful dog, armed with a spade and dressed in camouflage, he moves under cover of darkness so that nobody finds out where he searches for the precious subterranean fungus. He spreads the aromatic equivalents of landmines to throw rival beasts off track, doing everything to protect his livelihood, for bringing in a precious edible of sufficient size can feed his family for a week.

Nikkei cuisine and where to find it

“Nikkei” just sounds like a word people are going to use wrong. You can almost hear a half dozen people sitting around a violet-lit table in some SoHo hotspot asking stuff like, “Is the octopus tonight Nikkei? Perhaps you could go back and ask the chef.” While the waiter looks on confused another chimes in, “Kylie ONLY eats Nikkei now. It’s like sushi, but lower-carb.” “And, like, all the fish has to be flown in from Peru,” says another. “And they mix it with six different kinds of pomegranat...

Eat, Stay, Play: A Quick Guide to Daylesford & the Macedon Ranges

Located just an hour north-west of the city, the neighbouring towns of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs has long been one of people’s favourite weekend getaways from Melbourne. Once a playground for the well-to-do with a thriving arts and wine scene, the town was made famous due to it’s natural mineral springs. I’ve been fortunate enough to head out to Victoria’s Spa Country a few times in the last year: a girls spa weekend in Daylesford was the first trip that took me there, followed by a solo ve...
