Your Guide To Paris’s Underground

A trip through the shadows of the City of Light By Anthony Cuthbertson The surface of Paris resembles that of an iceberg peaking its tip above the surface of the water. Beneath, there lies one of the most extensive and complex underground networks in the world. Alongside almost 300 metro […]

Alive And Well In Prague: A Case Study Of Ex-Patriotism

When asked why they choose to leave their native soil, I’ve heard plenty of ex-patriots answer with tales of youthful days spent eagerly turning the pages of a National Geographic and dreaming. My own youthfully intrepid mind used to consistently conjure up vivid images standing on a boat’s bow peering […]

Video: Barcelona — By Skateboard

Come see Barcelona with Danny. You remember Danny, right? My 37-year-old unemployed friend who spends his days in Barcelona drinking coffee, smoking, cigarettes, and skateboarding around the city with nary a care. Yes, I’m jealous. Enjoy this unique look at Barcelona.

Spain’s Paradores: Sleep In Your Very Own Castle For The Night

By Susan Radcliffe As anyone who’s been there knows (especially in the summer), Spain is a very popular holiday destination. The Costa del Sol is overrun with tourists and some of the country’s most beautiful beaches are marred by the crowds and the concrete high-rise hotels. But this wasn’t always […]

A City´s Sangre: Seeing Paris From Underground

I have a friend who bumped into a couple at a bar. They were drinking pints and discussing points over, what appeared to be, a map. And, it was: A map of the Buenos Aires underground-Subte lines. When asked whether they needed help getting somewhere, they simply replied,  no, thanks. […]

“Turkey . . . By Far.”

I hadn’t thought much about Turkey until I met a flight attendant named Kevin about three years ago. My curiosity regarding his many travels led me to this one ultimate question: Where’s the coolest place you’ve been? Let’s cut through all the b.s., right? So, I’m expecting some off-the-radar tropical […]

Luke´s Europe Trip: Dispatch 4 (Holy Andalusian Tapas! By Decree Of The King!)

I tend to consider myself a wholesome, PG-rated person. But in looking back at my first three Expeditioner dispatches from my Europe trip, the themes were not exactly the stuff of church homilies. They included: Selling cigarettes in London, The Devil, and illegally visiting Paris’s catacombs. To redeem myself, I […]

There Is A Coffee Heaven, And They Call It Vienna

Who would of thought that a bag of questionable pellets, originally thought to be camel dung, could transform a city into a coffee culture hub? Neither did the Viennese, nor myself, until The Toronto Star let me in on the secret. With over 300 coffee shops, Vienna has mastered the art of […]

Not content with the haute cusisine and celebrity chefs that permeate the dining scene in New York, the NYT’s Frugal Traveler, Matt Gross, headed off to Italy to barge in on some local families for a few but-gusting sit-down lunches and dinners (oh yeah, they were also complete strangers), all […]

Why Biking Europe Is The Way To Go This Summer

The poets tell us it’s about the journey, not the destination. The poetry unit in school wasn’t my specialty, but I’d have to agree with them. For those that feel the need to suck the marrow out of a journey, travel by means of bike has to be the way […]
