Tea on the Sea – Part 2

To recap our hero’s adventure, start with Tea on the Sea – Part 1 It seems a bit obsessive, but I often bring a secret stash of tea and a tiny travel tea set when I’m on the road. This time, I had tried with all my strength to not let my tea addiction show, but I could endure it no longer. Staggering, I made my way through the unending labyrinth of identical hallways back to my cabin. I got on my hands and knees and reached under the bed where I had carelessly shoved my backpack.

Up High

I’m loving our new apartment on the 23rd floor. As I have written before, I have become the Paris Weather Girl because I can see everything, even from across the room. In our old apartment I had to go right up and look up at an apartment across the courtyard to see if the wind was blowing their bushes around to know the weather. Rain too wasn’t that obvious. I feel like we are right up in the sky and I can see the weather and hear it too. I read that wind is common here in Europe this time of ye...

Courtship customs around the world

Though easier than ever, dating today can feel formulaic: Meet on a dating app, maybe in a bar. Exchange numbers. Exchange texts. Meet for drinks, maybe coffee. Then fade into each other’s contact lists, rinse, and repeat with the next match from said dating app. Even in the Tinder era, however, there’s more to courtship than swiping right. It just depends on where in the world you are. If you’re looking for some flirty inspiration this Valentine’s Day, keep these seven traditional courtship ...

Where to find vegan tacos in CDMX

Mexico City is replete with meat-centric street food.

Veganism — once an epithet for expensive yogi food — is being redefined in Mexico City by people like Luis Rodríguez and Melissa Ayala, who are introducing plant-based proteins into local c...
