Travelling via Chicago

As if there weren't already enough complications and concerns for those who have to travel, a "self-quarantine" travel order issued a week ago by the Commissioner of Health of the City of Chicago has cast a cloud of uncertainty over what might happen to people who try to change planes, trains, or buses in Chicago. The health order requires anyone who enters the Chicago city limits from any of a blacklist of states designated by the Chicago Department of Health to "self-quarantine" for 14 days o...

Notes on Ninh Binh – an abandoned backpacker street and the mega mansions that look like cathedrals

After visiting the Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex (the main attraction of Ninh Binh) I visited Ninh Binh City. I had read some reviews saying its not worth visiting, which just made me want to visit it more. To be fair it’s not a place you would choose to visit if you had two weeks in Vietnam. I visited because as a) a gentleman of leisure, and b) an urban connoisseur, I had the time and inclination to visit. [Ninh Binh river walk.] On the way to Ninh Binh it occurred to me that I’ve been...

Notes on Quy Nhon – an emerging beach city in Vietnam (2020 trip report)

Quy Nhon is a provincial capital in the South Central Coast region of Vietnam. I was last in Quy Nhon in 2018, and a 2020 visit wasn’t on my travel radar until I visited the beaches of Phu Yen to the south. After visiting Phu Yen it made more sense to go to Quy Nhon than to back track to Tuy Hoa. Two years is a long time for coastal cities in Vietnam, and sure enough Quy Nhon has seen some changes since I was last here. I write different travel reports for two sites (here and at Living In Asia...

Getting the Help I Didn’t Know I Needed in Paris With Monograms

When I was 17 years old, I boarded an Air France flight for my first trip outside of the US. It was also only the 3rd time I’d been on a plane and I couldn’t wait for my summer as an exchange student in Paris to get started. Although I did indeed suffer from some fairly intense homesickness, by the end of my time in Paris I was smitten. I had fallen in love not only with the city but with traveling in general; it truly was a trip that influenced the rest of my life. Although I’ve been to ne...

Nobody Asked Me, But… No. 221: Hotel History: Hotel Florence | By Stanley Turkel

Hotel History: Hotel Florence. The Hotel Florence is a former operating hotel located in the Pullman Historic District on the far south side of Chicago, Illinois.

Notes on Haiphong – A historic port city in Northern Vietnam

Haiphong is the third largest city in Vietnam, and apart from being an industrial port city it has a historic city centre that should attract more tourists than it does. It rarely makes anyones list of places to visit in Vietnam, but if you have time it’s worth a detour. I had read it being described as an old port city with crumbling colonial buildings, which sounds like my kind of place. There is also a passenger train from Hanoi that runs separately from the main north-south line, so that c...

Mary Berry hosting an afternoon tea

Afternoon tea is a quintessential British experience, but sharing the mini sandwiches and pastries with beloved Mary Berry — the TV personality known for judging The Great British Baking Show — has to be almost as good as sharing crumpets with the Queen. In partnership with excursions company Belmond, Berry is hosting an afternoon tea train ride from Victoria Station in London through the picturesque Weald of Kent in the southeastern corner of the country. The four-hour round-trip journey thr...

Top converted trains on Airbnb

Trains have a certain air of romance about them, a small, contained space rumbling along the countryside where strangers meet and real-life is suspended. Adorable back woods bed and breakfasts have much the same charm, albeit without the rumbling. Thanks to Airbnb, you can now enjoy the best of both worlds by spending the night in a converted train car. People all over the world have combined old trains with bed and breakfasts to create ultra-romantic getaways surrounded by mountains, river...

A Ticket into the Past

February 21, 1804, Penydarren ironworks in South Wales. A steam locomotive pulled a train along the tramway of the Penydarren ironworks, near Merthyr Tydfil, and the world’s first steam-powered railway journey in the world made a notch on the timeline of history. It was a new age. Over the next century, trains would become a vital mode of transporting everything from food to coal to building materials to passengers. In the United States, the Transcontinental Railroad connected east to west, a pa...

Travel Chile for cheap

As its name would imply , Chile is hot with travelers right now. Unfortunately, it is also one of South America’s pricier destinations, thanks in part to having one of the continent’s strongest and most stable economies, but also because of the not-insignificant transportation costs involved in even getting there, and then navigating up and down its more than 2,670-mile length. But you can’t put a price tag on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, so when doing your planning or during your trip, here...

Blessings and surprises in Huntsville Alabama and TBEX

I feel blessed. I hesitate to write those words, in part because of the religious connotations of it, but also from wariness that it comes across as if I have been favoured over others. A favouring to be blessed is not the truth, more so, the ability of one to see their own blessings. It’s up to us to awaken to what the blessings are and live humbly through them with gratitude and the desire to pass it on. I’ve recently spent a few days in Huntsville Alabama for the TBEX conference. (Actually, i...

Where to enjoy natural wines in Montréal

For the past few years, the term “natural wine” has carved itself a larger spot in our daily vernacular as well as on restaurants’ menus. The natural wine phenomenon is nothing new but its “rebirth” and its newfound popularity is. This latest buzzword designates wines that have been grown and processed with minimal intervention and no added chemicals. Instead of trying to control nature, natural wine producers embrace and work with it. This produces wines that are a true representation of their ...

How to Travel (Like A Local) in Guatemala

I’m a long way from having been to all of them (or even half of them) but so far, Guatemala is my favorite country. Why? Great question. It’s not like the food is that great. The infrastructure is pretty much crap. It’s not the most peaceful place in the world (ranked 117th of 163, by the Global Peace Index 2016 the USA is at 103, for perspective). And it’s not that easy to get around. "...there’s something about the people, the place, and the languages, that sing to my soul." But there’s som...

An impressive beast

I have delayed for a few days blogging about the first flight of the A380 because I wanted to let my thoughts gestate rather than rushing to publish. I wanted to let it all sink in now I have seen it in operation. It is an impressive beast. The sheer size and scale will keep newcomers open-jawed. Of course, what passengers experience will be up to the airlines not to Airbus, so in that sense the plane maker was lucky that the launch customer was Singapore Airlines who clearly decided they would ...
