Google Celebrates the Bauhaus School’s 100th Anniversary with an Animated Doodle

Tel Aviv’s best art museums

Israel is constantly in the headlines, and it’s rarely for the art scene. Tel Aviv, however, can at times feel a world apart. The nearly 430,000-person city is more secular than other parts of the country, and is known for its restaurants, bars, street art, and many galleries. It has a little bit of everything for creatives, regardless of how people want to express themselves. No one knows this better than the artists currently living in Tel Aviv. Ariela Wertheimer is an artist who was born, ...

‘The Devil In the White City’ Movie is Now a Hulu Series From Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were hoping to one day adapt Erik Larson’s fantastic book The Devil in the White City into a feature film, with Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio starring as the notorious H.H. Holmes, thought to be America’s first serial killer. But now, things have changed. Instead of a movie, we’re getting a Devil in the White City Hulu show, and while Scorsese and DiCaprio will still be producing, it’s doubtful their involvement will go much further than that. And that’s...

Events across Germany mark a century of Bauhaus architecture and design

Hundreds of events across Germany this year will celebrate the 100th birthday of the Bauhaus movement, whose "form follows function" aesthetic spread around the world, shaping modern architecture and design. From New York's Seagram Building to Tel Aviv's White City, the clean, simple lines of Bauhaus became an integral part of the template of contemporary cities. "Bauhaus - with its approach to the world and art - had a decisive function.

People hadn't set foot in this ancient 'lost city' in the Honduran jungle for 500 years. Now the government is fighting to save it.

The Honduras government is fighting to save land threatened by illegal cattle ranching, which contributes to deforestation. The land is home to the treasured Moskitia rainforest, the second-largest rainforest in Central America and a key player in the fight against climate change.  It's also home to the vaunted "White City," a lost village that remained untouched for half a millennium. It's been six years since archaeologists stumbled upon an abandoned village in the Honduran jungle ...

European capitals ranked by cost

Europe used to be cheap. Like dirt cheap. Ask your parents about their 1960s backpacking adventures across post-World War II Europe and they’ll tell stories of 10-cent hostels, five-cent beers, and the best pizza you ever had for a quarter. Like a lot of your parents’ stories, they’re highly exaggerated, but they’re also a far cry from the $7 pints and $200-a-night hotels you find in big Euro capitals now. That’s not to say the entire continent is a bank-breaker, though. Look hard enough and ...

Israel – The good, the frustrating, and the just plain quirky

After three weeks of touring Israel, my husband and I have fallen in love with this tiny country. Israel is awash in dazzling historical sites, fascinating architecture, and religious venues that can bring you to tears. It’s hard to imagine a country the size of New Jersey possessing so much – ski resorts, coral reefs, Mediterranean beaches, and of course, the ubiquitous desert. Despite all its attributes though, it possesses a quirkiness that can run the gamut from charming to exasperating. Pho...

Ostuni : The Charming White City in Puglia

Of all the towns I’ve visited in Puglia, I think my favorite happens to be Ostuni.  I was charmed immediately by this medieval walled city,  especially the città vecchia, old town, with its tiny jumble of alleyways. Many entice you with a small slice of blue sky or water, barely visible. When you follow them, ending at white rock walls, they reveal beautiful panoramas of the landscape below; on a clear day you can see to the Adriatic. It reminded me a little of Greece, with its cactus plants an...
