Travel: These 3 new restaurants make Las Vegas a winner for the budget conscious

Name a top-end dining trend this century and odds are it has found its way to a Las Vegas casino, served in a frou-frou designed room with $$$$ menus. That’s all well and good for high-rolling foodies, but for the rest of us, a different and welcome wrinkle has arrived: Vegas is becoming a beachhead for outposts of regional eateries that have blown up nationally by selling high-quality comfort food at low-to-moderate price points. While Las Vegas has had high-end restaurants for years, it ha...

US modern Indian food movement

The shiny orange layer of slime sitting on top of the chicken thighs looked suspicious. The sign said “butter chicken,” but it looked more like what was left in the sink when I was done washing dishes. As an apprehensive 10-year-old, pretty much everything under the yellowing lights of the $8.95, all-you-can-eat buffet looked suspect. The walls were covered in pictures of the Taj Mahal, old Bollywood movies played on TV, and the entire place smelled like a New York City bodega took the conten...

20 Fun and Interesting Things to Do in Los Angeles with Kids

LA is the second biggest city in the USA, and as a visitor it seems like there are endless things to do in Los Angeles with kids! Over the years we’ve been able to visit Los Angeles several times. Firstly solo, then as a couple, and now with our two daughters, Kalyra and Savannah. To be honest we weren’t initially big fans, and it’s taken a while for LA to grow on us. Sometimes you have to visit a place a second or third or even forth time before you can appreciate it. I think it’s because we c...

US no longer needs visa for Brazil

For a few years now , Brazil has been experimenting with its visa program when it comes to travelers from the US. In 2016, the country temporarily waived visa requirements to attract US citizens for the Summer Olympics, and in 2018, it launched an e-visa program to make visa acquisition easier for US travelers. Now, the country is eliminating the visa requirement altogether, making it easier than ever for Americans to travel to Brazil. Starting on June 17, American, Canadian, Australian, and J...

American Travel Experiences Everyone Should Try

In recent years I’ve spent a lot more time traveling around my own country and, for the most part, it’s been wonderful. The experiences I’ve enjoyed most times truly surprised me and I’ve learned how to better appreciate the full width and breadth of the U.S. In an effort to encourage other people, American or not, to experience more of what makes the country so much fun to explore, today I want to share some of my own personal experiences that I think best portray what the nation is all about....

La Moneda – A Rare Glimpse Inside Chile’s Presidential Palace

Santiago is pretty generous with residents and tourists. Admission is free to many great museums—including the Museo Historico Nacional, the Museo Nacional de Historia Natural, the Museo de Artes Visuales (MAVI), the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and the Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos—and parks are open to the public until late at night. Few places are off limits in the capital, except, quite understandably, the Palacio de la Moneda, the seat of the President of the Republic of Chil...

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 ...

Where to eat and drink ATL airport

Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport is the busiest airport in the world. Thankfully, the airport planners had restaurants, food, and drinks in mind when designing the terminals. There are places for classic southern staples like chicken and beer, as well as restaurants you likely already know, like P.F. Chang’s and Shake Shack. Not to mention fine dining like One Flew South, which sets the bar for the best airport food. Frankly, Atlanta is one of the best airports in the world if you’re look...

Unlikely Food Destinations I Love to Visit

The other day I saw an article declaring how strange it was for a certain destination I love to actually have incredible food. I’d visited there several times and already knew how amazing the food scene is, but I was surprised that they were surprised. The fact is, that some cities, regions and even entire countries have terrible reputations when it comes to the culinary scene. Usually, although I admit not always, these reputations aren’t fair, especially in 2019. In the last 15 years or so, n...

Best LGBTQ bars and clubs in the US

Since the opening of Seattle’s The Double Header in 1933, American gay bars have propelled the country’s LGBTQIA community into the mainstream, nearly singlehandedly removing the stigma and replacing it with a feeling of pride and joy. As opposed to your typical run-of-the-mill bar or club, gay nightlife institutions have long been celebrated for their open-minded approach to fun, welcoming anyone over the age of 21 and encouraging them to express themselves in whatever ways they wish.

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...

Deepavali vs Diwali: A short, stupidly chauvinistic rant (in four graphs) on the mind gap between the South and the North

“North vs South” is an evergreen story in Indian journalism. And maha fun too. Newspapers, magazines, and pop-columnists have for decades banked on the all-too-real differences between the people, food, movies, music, habits, efficiency between the two geographical halves of India to rescue them out of many a deadline crisis. End of akhand story. Yesterday was Deepavali below the Vindhyas, which, of course, has been shortened to Diwali above it so that it is easier on the tongues of the langua...

Should You Add “Unsafe” Destinations to Your RTW Trip?

Fear is individually unique. One person’s definition of a safe destination can equal another’s worst nightmare. However, regardless of whether you sport a high fear factor or quiver at the sight of your own shadow (I idle somewhere in between), there are certain destinations around the globe that sit at the upper end of the spectrum of dangerous.   The reasons that turn a spot into a danger zone are wide ranging, from war, to natural disasters, to terrorism, to violent civil unrest.   Whether yo...

Flying (a Biofuel-Free) Virgin Atlantic 787-9 in Upper Class

7 parasites to avoid while traveling

But there might be one thing missing from their standard healthcare checklist: parasite protection. If you don’t take the time to research what parasites are festering in the local area you are traveling to, you might be setting yourself up for a traveler’s most unwanted souvenir.
