Exploring The Two Worlds Of Turkey

Monday, November 10, 2008

Understanding Turkey takes both time as well as effort, but what else do you expect from a country that spans two entire worlds? By Ben Snook Turkey is confused. It’s been confused for quite some time, in fact. Straddling the Bosporus, the country has its feet planted in both Europe and Asia (or Asia Minor, […]

Falling In Love With Italy; It’s Easier Than You Think

Monday, November 3, 2008

A trip to Southern Italy is all it takes to show why it’s so hard not to love Italy, even when it’s not even trying that hard. By Hillary Richard I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it’s impossible not to love Italy, but that’s not due to a lack of […]

Visiting Paris During The Sale Of The Year

Friday, October 24, 2008

Imagine if you could only find clothes on sale twice a year. What would be the result? Semi-annual Black Friday-like shopping melees? Caddy women (and a few men) jockeying for prized items? An upsurge in foreign tourists hoping to pounce on deals of up to 90% off on luxury goods? An intermittent upsurge in personal […]

Livin’ La Dolce Vita a Roma

Thursday, October 2, 2008

I finished rewatching La Dolce Vita the other night and I was surprised at how different the film was from what I remember after first seeing it many years ago.

Oktoberfest: Does Anyone Care?

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Oktoberfest is just around the corner, and just in time for this vapid event are your predictable slew of Oktoberfest “guides” that purport to help you fit in with the mostly tourist crowd that descends on Munich every year.
