Trading Divorce for Travel

Reflecting on it now, it seems appropriate that my husband and I took a weekend trip to sign our divorce papers.  At the time, I was living in New York City and he in San Diego.  In an attempt to be amicable, we decided to meet in Palm Springs for the “official” signing.  It was a typical Palm Springs weekend that we’d experienced dozens of times before: the air hot and dry, with oily and glistening leathery women sprawled out on chaise lounges around the pool.  The difference this time was that...

Cost of smoking over your lifetime

Not that smokers walk around justifying their habit as a sound financial decision, but when you break down the numbers, it’s almost as painful as that perpetual hacking cough. WalletHub, the personal finance website that researches and ranks everything from hotel rewards programs to best cities to keep your New Year’s resolution, broke down how much it cost the average smoker over their lifetime in each state. And the answers are uglier than an eighth-grade health class slide of a black lung...

Things to do in Buffalo in winter

There is an old joke about a beauty contest prize that says something like, “First place gets a week in Buffalo. Second place gets TWO weeks in Buffalo!” And though Nickel City has moved well past being the butt of awful vacation jokes, landing itself on several “places to visit” lists — including one of our favorites of 2018 — that advice is always almost tempered by, “Go in the summer.” And while winter in Buffalo might sound about as inviting as a summer internship at a sewage plant, one B...

How to visit Museum of the Dog

New York City has some of the best museums, but it was lacking a very important one: a museum dedicated entirely to dogs. On February 8, however, the American Kennel Club’s Museum of the Dog is opening its doors at 101 Park Avenue, and it’s a dog lover’s dream. The museum first opened in New York in 1982 on Madison Avenue, then moved to Missouri. Now, it’s coming back home. It will be home to several hundred paintings, drawings, watercolors, prints, sculptures, bronzes, and porcelain figurin...

Tried & Tested: Hotel N’vY, Geneva

Just a 5 minute walk from Lake Geneva and not too far from the town centre, Hotel N’vY is wonderfully located. But it’s location in and of itself is definitely not the only reason why we’d recommend this 4 star luxury hotel over and over again. Part of the Manotel Hotel Group and designed by hotel architect Patrick Ribes, Hotel N’vY is more of an art gallery meets hotel. The lobby is filled with eye-catching artwork from renowned artists such as David Cintract, Bruno Catalano and Damien R...

my first island off the island: a brief stop in sointula

This week I drove down to Port McNeill -- about 30 minutes away, and the home of one of my libraries -- and took the ferry to Malcolm Island, to visit another of my libraries, in the town of Sointula. I traveled with a co-worker who does programming and support work in our zone's libraries and communities. She's a great person and an awesome library worker, and we're doing all my first site visits together.We stepped off the ferry and into Coho Joe, a local haunt. No sooner did we walk through t...

Rotterdam: Hotel New York

Hotel New York in Rotterdam embedded between high rises. It used to be the passengers terminal for the Holland – Amerika Line. This is Post # 1,000 of this blog. Atp subject as the making of this hotel in Rotterdam inspired me to create my small hotel / B & B Haagsche Suites in The Hague later. The highest highrise here is the Montevideo building by Francine Hoeben. Left Highrise is WorldPortCenter by Norman Foster. The post Rotterdam: Hotel New York appeared first on Happy Hotelier.

Where to volunteer in NYC

In the words of Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place — though actually posed by philosopher T.M. Scanlon — what do we owe to each other? We’re all here together, so we should probably work together to make things better. Volunteering can help us do exactly that, and it does a wealth of good for everyone, including those being helped, the world around us, and ourselves. New York City has its fair share of problems, but it also has a number of places willing to address them. Finding somewhere to ...

Norwegian liquor travels the world

People have different definitions of what it means to be well-traveled. For some, it means a big portion of your time is spent exploring new places. To others, it simply means racking up passport stamps. Every drop of Linie Aquavit, a spirit from Norway, is well-traveled regardless of how you define it. In fact, all of the Linie sold since 1821 has seen more of the world than the vast majority of humans. Before being bottled, Linie is aged in 500-liter barrels that previously held Oloroso she...

Crude Rally Hits Pause as Markets Reassess Economic Outlook - Bloomberg

Crude Rally Hits Pause as Markets Reassess Economic Outlook - Bloomberg Oil prices closed lower for the first time in two weeks Friday as investors paused to assess the economic outlook and OPEC’s ability to counter the U.S. shale boom. Futures in New York slipped 1.9 percent for the day, ending a nine-day rally that has pushed crude back into a bull market. Prices slipped along with the S&P 500 as the U.S. government shutdown showed no signs of ending, leaving some 800,000 federal worke...

Travel: No ship of fools for these cruise performers

Garry Carson has heard it thousands of times from cruise passengers before showtime: “I don’t like magic, but let’s see if the guy is any good.” Some entertainers would have bruised egos overhearing such comments, especially on a crowded elevator ride to the deck of the theater. But after 500-plus cruises over 22 years, the seafaring magician knows the life of taking an act on the road where there are no roads. “These people aren’t there because they love or even like magic,” said Carson, pointi...

Eating raw chicken sashimi in Tokyo

When it comes to eating sashimi in Tokyo, fish is by far the most ubiquitous offer. But it’s not the only one. Restaurants also serve shikasashi (deer), basashi (horse), and — perhaps most hotly debated of all — torisashi (chicken). The name loosely translates to “raw bird,” and it’s exactly what it sounds like: thinly sliced raw chicken breast served with a flavorful salt or sauce. I never thought I’d order raw chicken sashimi-style. Like most Americans, I grew up deeply terrified of salmon...

No Trousers Tube Ride is coming back

With or without an organized event, this phenomenon probably happens in many subway systems around the world on a daily basis. But in London it’s an annual, official tradition. The 10th annual “No Trousers on the Tube Day” is back this weekend, and you can bet bare-legged commuters will be lining up in droves to ride the rails. For every Londoner who finds the practice distasteful, there are likely dozens of others eager to ride the tube with a renewed sense of freedom. The first “No Trousers...

Rhum Bar 1802 and MASHA Restaurant

In my younger days, I was a full out disco king, going out to clubs like Studio 54 or Area in New York almost every night of the week. Strutting my best moves on the dance floor, I was stiff competition for John Travolta aka Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever.   Nowadays, I don’t go out much anymore at night except to have dinner at restaurants. I’ve put my platform disco shoes, shiny shirts unbuttoned practically to the waist, and bell bottom pants into storage and now wear furry slippe...

Chiang Mai trip report – the provincial powerhouse of Southeast Asia

Every time I return to Chiang Mai (which has been often) I marvel at how hard this inland provincial city punches above its weight. After thinking about this I looked at a map of Asia, and I can’t think of a non-capital city (and not a port/coastal city) that has as much to offer as Chiang Mai. Sure there are bigger inland cities in China, but not with the international appeal as Chiang Mai. In the future I think Da Nang will be the city to watch, but it has some way to go to catch up with the...

Why you should visit Nicaragua now

The signs at the beach bars and hostels along Playa Santana were a little misleading. Hotels and bars that didn’t look like they’d been touched in months were promising parties, happy hours, and imminent reopenings. “Closed until summer,” said the black scrawl outside Taberna 99. It’s unclear which summer, exactly, the sign was referring to. Could be 2019. Could be 20-never. “Back next season,” read the one hanging in back of Buena Onda Beach Resort. “Next” being a relative term. “Beach party...
