European travel requirements seemed dauntingly strict. Turns out I was overprepared.

In early August, as I was packing my carry-on for a month-long trip to Europe, I was sure I had everything in order for my first international flight since the start of the pandemic. I’d triple-checked the requirements for entering Portugal, where the emergence of the Delta variant had complicated an already fickle travel landscape. I slipped my CDC-issued vaccination card and the negative results of a rapid antigen test taken within 48 hours of my departure into the sleeve of my passport cas...

Exploring Stunning Vis, Croatia: Travel Guide to Vis Island

You might know your way around the Croatian islands — but none of them are like Vis, Croatia. Vis island is one of the most special places in Croatia, and has a different feeling from everywhere else. I’ve been visiting Croatia’s islands for nearly a decade. My two favorite islands in Croatia are Korčula and Vis — but for very different reasons. Korčula is where you go to do tons of cool activities. Vis is where you go to chill out and relax.

Time Warp: A ‘vintage’ motorcycle built from scratch

A huge part of the custom scene is making modern motorcycles look older. Removing plastics, softening angles, fitting things like spoked wheels and simple mufflers. Take that trend to the logical extreme, and you have a custom like this one. It looks like it’s a century old, but it’s only just been built. It comes from the astoundingly talented Alessandro Rorato—a 39-year-old model-making specialist from Veneto, Italy. To understand the bike, you often need to understand the man. Alessandr...

From fortified castle to wedding venue: Venetian examplars of adaptive reuse

What does one do with a castle? The Venetian Terraferma (and, indeed, all of Europe) is dotted with medieval castles that have long outlived the purposes for which they were intended. And yet, built of stone, they are costly to demolish and—more importantly—of great historical interest. Despite fires, earthquakes, and simple neglect, many remain standing thanks to the creativity of owners, architects, and municipalities in finding ways to restore and preserve these evocative palimpsests of the p...

Big Sled: A Ducati Scrambler 1100 from Officine RossoPuro

We’ve been lucky enough to ride most of Ducati’s extensive Scrambler range. Of all of them, the Desert Sled is the one we’re most likely to ride in the dirt—and the liter-plus Scrambler 1100 is the one we’re most likely to ride on the street. But what if you could roll them both into one bike? That’s exactly what Filippo Barbacane of Officine RossoPuro has just done, with this off-road-focused Ducati Scrambler 1100. By mashing up the 1100 with Desert Sled parts and hand-made touches, he’s bui...

AK Monthly Recap: August 2020

I always dreamed of spending a summer hopping along the Adriatic. I would touch down in Venice and head to Piran in Slovenia, making my way down the coasts of Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, and Greece. Well, I kind of got that.

I am beyond thankful that Croatia gave me and my boyfriend what we needed — a place where we could be together at a time when we’re banned from each other’s countries. Beyond that, this trip allowed me to work wi...
