Velia: Guide to the Greek and Roman Excavations

Yes, I know your objections to Naples. “But the crime!” you point out. Perhaps you mumble something about piles of garbage. We who know her counter with, “But she is a diamond in the rough!” So let’s let the camera speak, because the verbal argument is long and tedious. Consider Vesuvius Vesuvius, the only active volcano in Europe, is the focal point of Naples You can’t miss the volcano when you ...

Twelve philosophy books everyone should read: from Plato to Foucault [slideshow]

Every year the third Thursday in November marks World Philosophy Day, UNESCO’s collaborative “initiative towards building inclusive societies, tolerance and peace.” To celebrate, we’ve curated a reading list of historical texts by great philosophers that shaped the modern world and who had important things to say about the issues that we wrestle with today such as freedom, authority, equality, sexuality, and the meaning of life.  The Republic by Plato (427-347...

Best cities for street art

Every city has some form of graffiti. More often than not, it’s a handful of crude doodles or expletives, but most bigger metropolises around the world display graffiti that truly lives up to the classification of street art. Jaw-dropping, thought-provoking imagery brightens up neighborhoods from Melbourne to Reykjavik, showcasing serious talent, technique, and flair. These nine cities do urban art better than anyone else and attract visitors from far and wide to see what masterpieces their o...

Montparnasse Cemetery

  In an ongoing photo exploration of the cemeteries of Paris, I visited Montparnasse Cemetery last month. It’s a personal favorite and I’ve visited the cemetery many times and include it in my Montparnasse tour. Although it’s the second largest cemetery in Paris, it feels smaller and more intimate than Pere Lachaise and the list of writers, poets, performers, actors and artists buried in it is stellar. Close to the main entrance is the shared tombstone of Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sar...

7 of the Best Places Around the World for Literary Inspiration

Coffee. I wonder if anything ever got written without it. Literary Inspiration Around the World This morning, I strode out of my house while the sun was still wet around the ears, busy making pavements glisten and getting ready to start the day. I headed past the light pastries that curled in one towards the other. Past the suits and boots and jangling keys heading towards shops to open and start the day. I knew where I was headed: to a coffee shop slash cafe, a place with tables, wifi ...

Travel gets better with age

Photo: Joe Stump If I could somehow magically take a trip with my younger self, I’d probably kick my own ass before we left the tarmac. I was an idiot at 23 — I wore a leather headband to hold back my shoulder-length hair — and even though I’m still an ass at 33, the past 10 years of adventure travel have taught me one very important thing: People in Their 20s don’t know how to travel. I sure as hell didn’t. By the time I turned 25, I considered myself “well-traveled.” I’d lived abroad in a...

Bridges of Paris: Five Favorites

The bridges of Paris are not just for crossing. Each is its own unique and beautiful travel destination. Thirty-seven bridges cross the Seine river within the city boundaries. Some are just for pedestrians or trains, most carry motor-traffic and two bridges carry all three. Bridges have spanned the Seine since well before 100BCE. Three existing bridges were erected in the 1600s and the newest was opened just ten years ago. Here are five of my favorites. Next time you are in France, tour the b...

A 60-year-old woman at Ghatkopar station yesterday sauntered onto the platform, got down on the tracks and lay down on them just as a local train arrived. At least two bogies passed over her before the driver applied the brakes. She came out almost unscathed, with just an injury on a toe on the left foot. On...

In praise of rural group walks: why crowds are good company

Walking can bring relaxation, beauty and happiness – even on a group stroll. Though, as Alan Franks knows, it’s useful to have a few ground rules before hitting your stride. Plus: 5 great walks to tryIf you’re thinking about organising a walk in the countryside for a group of friends or colleagues, a frequently offered word of advice is … don’t. What’s the problem? It – or, rather, they – are staring you in the face: your would-be companions. Never was a more popular observation made on the peri...
