Best hikes near the Rocky Mountains

Spring is upon us. The Rocky Mountains and its sub-ranges are beginning to shed snow, colorful wildflowers are in bloom, and hiking trails that have been accessible only to cross-country skis and fat bikes for the past few months are opening up to eager hikers. Spring hiking focuses more on canyons than scrambles and meadows than summits, and these five towns are the place to base yourself for epic spring hikes throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

Summer Lovin’ Had Me a Blast; Summer Lovin’ Happened So Fast

This post originally appeared on Nomadic Chick. It all began, fittingly, on the first day of summer with a game called ‘tangled’, where everyone puts their hands in the center of a circle, grabs two random people’s hands and then proceeds to untangle themselves to make a circle as this is “team-building” and “creates friendships”. It was our first day as counselors at an American summer camp in up-state New York and we were wondering just what we had gotten ourselves into. In the fray of hand g...

5 Unsung Word of Mouth Marketing Examples

Word of mouth marketing is — and has always been — the most effective (and cost-effective) way to generate customers and grow any business. But for a long time, word of mouth marketing has been mostly ignored in favor of outbound and inbound acquisition efforts, plus a big shift toward social media. The truth is that social media and word of mouth marketing are NOT THE SAME THING any more than toothpaste is the same as a toothpaste tube. Word of mouth is the toothpaste; social media is the tube...

Most popular whiskeys in the world

Whiskey is one of the world’s most beloved spirits. It’s both sipped neat and mixed into cocktails, savored and taken as a shot alongside a pint of beer. With this level of universal popularity, it should come as no surprise that countries around the world make the spirit. Each does things a little differently, making exploring the world through a dram or glass all too easy to do. Quick note: America, Ireland, and Mexico use the spelling “whiskey.” Everywhere else goes with the English spelli...

Why I Wrote LA PASSIONE

In the gleaming kitchen of her culinary academy in Florence, I once asked an architect-turned-chef-turned-restaurateur about the passions that had changed her life: How did she know that she was choosing the right one to follow? “Ah, signora, we do not choose our passion,” she said. “Passion chooses us.” I understood. Italy chose me. Decades ago, shivering in a frigid Swiss station after a talk in Gstaad, I impetuously switched trains and headed south to a sun-kissed country I’d never visited. ...

This is Not Your Parent’s Colombia

Posted: 3/14/2019 | March 14th, 2019 Colombia’s troubled past – cartels, paramilitaries, poverty, petty crime — casts a long shadow that still reaches to today. The country is still viewed by many as a place where danger lurks around every corner.* Having grown up hearing stories of Colombian drug lords, kidnappings, murders, and muggings, these ghosts haunted the back of my mind as prepared to visit the country.

Drinking laws in the Arab world

In the multi-billion-dollar game of tourism, having places for people to cut loose and drink is as important as beaches and chef-driven restaurants. This is the conundrum for much of the Middle East and parts of North Africa, as strict Muslim countries — governed by Sharia law prohibiting any involvement with alcohol – try to develop large-scale tourism. Nearly all of the Muslim countries you’d want to visit have ways for you to drink; you just need to follow an often confusing set of laws to...

Word of the week: Invasion

On March 15, a gunman killed at least 50 people and injured another 50 as they gathered in two Christchurch mosques. Minutes before the attacks, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had been emailed a 74-page document, variously called a “manifesto” and a “screed,” purported to have been written by the gunman. In it, the man – a 28-year-old Australian living in New Zealand – denounced immigrants as “invaders.” Hours later, Donald Trump held a ceremony at the White House to mark the firs...

The Blueprint of a Construction Project

By Joseph Brady The construction industry is quite a unique one. It’s an industry that contributes to most of the country’s GDP, by providing a means to production, the addition or improvement to the infrastructure of the economy, social investments such as hospitals, as well as personal investments like houses and apartments. Unfortunately, this industry can be a highly competitive one, with low profit margins. The demands from construction businesses are determined differently for different ty...

Crossing the Atlantic

It’s quite a process getting artwork out of Tom’s studio in our small village to his art shows in the grand United States. All starts with a blank canvas, tubes of paint and the inspirations of the surrounding countryside and daily French life. As each painting comes closer to being completed he starts construction of a frame. He builds his own frames starting with a plank, milled into frame stock, nailed together into a frame. Each frame is then gilded with gold. I used to help with t...

Face It. Hate is Profitable.

Of all the places I’ve traveled to around the world, my favorite by far is New Zealand. Not only is its natural beauty absolutely spectacular, but its people are incredibly warm and welcoming. And as a Native Hawaiian, I was especially struck by how the indigenous Māori people had forged and maintained respectful and equal relationships with the western world. They weren’t marginalized or caricatured cast-offs lost in the military industrial-slash-tourism complex. They were respected and...

The proper way to drink Guinness

The Guinness brewery opened in Dublin, Ireland, in 1759. Since then, it’s become one of the most ubiquitous beers worldwide. With that popularity and ease of access comes a lot of mythology. We determined fact from fiction with studies and the help of Heather McReynolds, a social media correspondent with Guinness. She’s spent 10 years in the beer industry, from head brewer at The Cannon Brew Pub in Columbus, Georgia, to brewing manager at Sixpoint Brewing in Brooklyn, New York, to her current...

Where to Stay in Los Angeles

The second most populous city in the United States, after New York City, Los Angeles is the unofficial capital city of the West Coast. Claimed by the Spanish in 1542 but not settled until the late 18th century, Los Angeles passed into American hands just over 170 years ago and grew exponentially from then onwards.

United States won’t ground Boeing

Although many airlines and countries, including the whole of the EU and the UK, have reacted to the Ethiopian Airlines crash by grounding Boeing 737 Max 8s or banning them from their airspaces, the US is keeping the aircraft model in the air. Several senators, from both the Republican and the Democratic parties, however, have called for these planes to cease operations until a thorough investigation determines the plane model is safe.
