Where to eat at London Heathrow

London’s Heathrow International Airport is built for the hungry. Heathrow’s restaurants range from classy to quick to pub. Heavy emphasis on “pub.” Like London itself, you can find pubs with traditional English bar food and beer everywhere you look in Heathrow. Which is fine and dandy, but there are also a number of high-end restaurants with fast or slow service if you’re looking for something a little different. These are the best restaurants and bars in every terminal of Heathrow Internatio...

5 Weird Things I Do To Earn Frequent Flyer Points (which you could easily incorporate into your life too)

There are literally thousands of ways to earn air miles or frequent flyer points. While I am not as crazy as the pudding guy (although he’s kind of a genius to have worked out how to earn over a million points through buying pudding!) and I don’t have too many super inventive stories, I do have some… quirks… when it comes to how I earn Qantas points. Some weirder than others. Most of these are things you too can do to earn more frequent flyer points without flying. I shop at my rival I’m so...

The best Piña Coladas in San Juan

You don’t have to go far to find a Piña Colada in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The cocktail’s birthplace is rife with frosty hurricane glasses full of rum, coconut cream, and pineapple juice. The bar at your hotel undoubtedly blends a reliable version, which you can happily slurp while lounging on the sunny hotel patio until you get brain freeze. But you don’t want to simply call it in when drinking Piña Coladas in Puerto Rico — because the bars on this island make some of the best vacation drinks ...

Best ways to donate when travel

There are many ways to make a positive impact when you travel — buying local, eating local, staying in a mom-and-pop guesthouse instead of the towering big-chain hotel. Voluntourism can also be a great way to use travel for good (if done the right way), but if you’re on the road with a set agenda — for work or a sporting event, for example — this isn’t always a viable option. A number of travel brands have developed ways for the casual traveler to leave a place better than they found it by do...

Tartelettes au citron

Ken found these little lemon tarts at the bakery that was closest to our gîte. They were quite tasty. Before we visited this particular bakery, we got some little strawberry tarts from the bakery in the big supermarket nearby. I have to say that the supermarket's tarts were every bit as good as the traditional bakery's tarts. I wonder how many times a day the baker has to pipe the word "citron" (lemon) on his tarts. My first instinct is to think that bakeries make better breads and desserts th...

Historical lesbian destinations

Due to the vast majority of LGBTQ historical records and writings focusing on the relationships between gay men, there isn’t much about the history of lesbianism in the more distant past. However, just in the past three centuries, along with the emergence of feminism and women’s rights, came the need to bring the lesbian voice into the mainstream. The easiest way to pay homage to the lesbian culture that helped shape history as you know it? Simply pay a visit to one of the many destinations a...

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...

Top Tips on How To Prepare For and Adventure Hiking With Baby

Having a baby can be a wondrous and rewarding experience, but it comes with compromise.
