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...

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...

Where to stay in Da Nang – the best areas and most notable hotels

Da Nang is increasingly becoming a travel hotspot in Southeast Asia. Located midway between Hanoi and Saigon, this Vietnamese city is geographically blessed with a river and sea front, with mountains in the backdrop. It wasn’t that long ago that travellers bypassed Da Nang on the way to and from Hoi An. Nowadays Da Nang has become a destination in itself. var stg = new Object(); stg.crt="84430634983627";stg.version="1.05";"adgshp1276308591"; stg.Width="728px"; stg.Heigh...

American stops flying to Venezuela

Amid the civil unrest taking place in Venezuela, American Airlines is joining other major US airlines in suspending service to the country. Normally, the airline flies twice daily between Caracas and Miami, and once between Maracaibo and Miami. The decision came after the Allied Pilots Association (APA), a union group for American Airlines Pilots, began urging its pilots to refuse trips to the country following a travel advisory issued by the US State Department. The advisory warned of “viole...

The best restaurants in Miami

There was a time when there was no such thing as traveling to Miami just for good food. Restaurants were either flashy, expensive, and about as appealing as a corner table, or they were locals-only, hole-in-the-walls. Oh how things have changed over the last 10 years. Today, Miami is very much a food city. It’s attracted chefs from around the world, and restaurants are blending influences from the Magic City’s diverse population. You can easily find Thai tapas, Nikkei cuisine, and guava every...

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...

Cost of living around the world

Rent sucks everywhere . Half of the United States is rent-burdened, meaning they spend more than one-third of their income on rent. And when you hear a stat like that, sometimes you think moving to another country might help your situation. But the truth is, it’s tough around the world. To see exactly how tough it’s gotten, relatively, the furnished apartment experts at Nestpick examined 740 neighborhoods in 50 cities, then determined the annual salary a single person would need to live in ea...

Cartagena: A City of Color, Tourists, and Food

Posted: 3/12/2019 | March 12th, 2019 During the narco heydays, Cartagena was considered the only “safe” spot in Colombia for tourists. It was where foreigners vacationed, cruise ships docked, and rich Colombians built their vacation homes. Today, this colorful colonial city remains one of the most popular destinations for tourists and Colombians alike. Rich Colombians — and now foreigners — still build vacation homes here, cruise ships still dock, and the influx of tourists has grown with an in...

Best bridges in the United States

Bridges seem to captivate people more than any other structures, not only as engineering marvels that connect previously separated areas but also as local icons that become unmistakable parts of a city. They’re places to relax, places to hone your photography skills, and sometimes places to beat your head against the steering wheel when stuck in traffic. But they always bring a sense of wonder and a little bit of closeness to the water. So it’s no wonder that bridges are among the most photog...

Best TV shows set in every state

Forget the airplane , the automobile, and the iPhone. The greatest American invention in history is hands down the television. Not only has it given us a way to see the world without leaving our living room, but it was also an electronic babysitter long before the tablet and gave families something to do at dinner other than talk to each other. Over the 70-plus years TV has been around we’ve seen thousands of shows, set all kinds of places around our great land. We took a look through TV histo...

$28 Free Food on Every Trip is the Best Advance in Travel in Years

Whether it's Timberline Steaks in Denver or Corona Beach House in Miami, or Capers in Portland there are numerous airports where you can eat for free with a Priority Pass card. To be sure in some places the $28 per person credit you get covers gratuity and in others it doesn't, but it's still an incredible value. On the whole the lounges that you can access via Priority Pass are fairly mediocre though there are exceptions. However if you're going to be in a crowded lounge without much food, wo...

History of the tres leches cake

In March of 2008 , I found myself in a pizza restaurant in Santa Rosa de Copán, Honduras. I was part of a Habitat for Humanity trip, and it was my first time out of the country. I wouldn’t have expected to find a pizzeria in this rural town in the mountains of Central America, but there we were. I wasn’t complaining, though. A long day of digging foundations and hauling wheelbarrows of dirt had left me with a formidable appetite. Plus, it was my birthday. I wasn’t expecting any kind of recogni...

Traveling I-95 on a Road Trip from NYC to Miami

My East Coast road trip started in Connecticut. The goal: get my aunt’s car all the way down to Fort Lauderdale so she’d have it for her winter home. With my flexible work schedule and passion for road trips, saying yes to the trip just came naturally. I’ve done pieces of this road trip before, including driving through Florida a handful of times, as well as a handful of New England road trips. But the full trip I’d never done before. Google Maps made it seem pretty straightforward. From my sta...

An Appreciation for the A380, an Airplane That Never Should Have Been Built

Less than 20 years after the aircraft program was launched, Airbus announced last week that it would begin winding down production on the A380. I’ve always thought this was an airplane that never should have been built. If Airbus breaks even on this program, then that would be the best possible outcome. If that doesn’t scream “not successful,” I don’t know what does. But that doesn’t mean it was all bad. In fact, as a passenger, the airplane was — and is — a delight to fly. So, consider th...

Why You Shouldn’t Overlook the American South

Posted: 2/18/2019 | February 18th, 2019 I love the South. Before I went traveling, I always had this perception that the southern states in the US were backward. They were filled with racists, yokels, and obese, gun-loving, Jesus freaks. It was a perception born out of a quarter-century of living in New England and consuming mass media and stereotypes about a people and place I really didn’t know anything about. Then, at the start of my grand trip in 2006, I drove across the United States. As ...

Avatar Airlines Has a New CEO and is Looking to Source 14 Boeing 747s on Social Media

Family Airlines started about 27 years ago. The idea was fly 747s between Las Vegas and Los Angeles as well as Newark, later adding cities like Miami and Honolulu. The government refused to process an application for service, reportedly insisting that founder Barry Michaels give up control of the project. Nonetheless, he continued raising money and the SEC filed suit over a securities offering. Continue reading Avatar Airlines Has a New CEO and is Looking to Source 14 Boeing 747s on Social Media...

Air Italy’s Strangely Fickle Network Strategy

If so, then you thought wrong. Air Italy has been all over the map, adding...

As American Shrinks at JFK’s Terminal 8, British Airways Moves In to Fill the Void

When American finished building its opulent Terminal 8 complex at New York’s JFK Airport in 2007, there were already plans to expand. What the airline didn’t predict back then is that the expansion would hardly be needed. American has done nothing but shrink at JFK, and that has created opportunity for smaller partners to move in. There has long been one partner, however, that makes the most sense for co-location, but until now that hasn’t been possible. Fortunately, there is now a plan in p...
