A Vacation To Adulthood? The Anti-Disney Theme Park

Thursday, July 22, 2010

The youth are starting to change. Walking through the streets of cities of the world and talking with locals, I have found discrepancies between my own (not-too-long-ago) childhood, and that of the “kids” today. As a young hooligan myself, I remember playing in my front yard until the street lamps came on — my informal […]

Destinations To Help Cure World Cup Blues

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Now that the World Cup is officially over, outside of Spain, the world is feeling quite a void right now. One spin through your Facebook statuses will prove that. So when Team England bowed out of the tourney, the UK-based Wanderlust had more than enough reasons to create a list of destinations specifically focused to […]

Strippers On Rickshaws: Absolute Brilliance

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Yup, my first post after “tying the knot” is likely to land me on the couch by new wife. During a neverending search for the ultimate bachelor party — which ended up at a martini-soaked karaoke bar in the middle of a cattle ranch — my friend happened to come across the PoleRiders blog and […]

The Rise Of The London Cycling Cafe

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

The FT is reporting the latest trend in the London coffee scene: bikers! No, the Hells Angels have not taken to sipping Mochachinos and chai lattes in their free time. We’re talking about the old-fashioned, manual kind of bikes, the ones that have become oh-so-popular with the coffee-drinking, Millennial set. As the paper notes, just […]

Say Goodbye To Cheap NYC Lodging?

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

A new law was passed this month in New York that could potentially be a big headache for apartment renters and the budget-conscious travelers that love them. The New York Assembly passed a bill that would make it illegal for homeowners to offer rentals of their property for less than 30 days, essentially deeming such […]

How Many Of The Top 21 Modern Structures Have You Come Across In Your Travels?

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

I enjoy tasting new, unique food. I love meeting new friends and getting to know the local culture. But, if there’s one thing I’m guilty of taking more pleasure in than anything else while traveling, it’s in seeing buildings. Guess what makes up about 90% of the photos I take while on the road? Yup, […]

Happy Canada Day: Long Live Kraft Dinners

Thursday, July 1, 2010

As 20% of is Canadian, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish our readers a happy Canada Day. Also, did you know Canadians call Kraft’s “Macaroni & Cheese,” “Kraft Dinner”? True story.

UPS Luggage Box: 1, Airline Luggage Fee: 0

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Jaunted is reporting that almost $800 million dollars of checked baggage fees were handed over to the airlines this year. In a money-strapped industry, I can’t see them waving those fees out of the goodness in their hearts anytime soon. So the masterminds behind UPS saw an opportunity, and they came up with a little innovation that will give […]

Not In Town For The 2010 Travel Blog Exchange Conference? Some Alternatives

Friday, June 25, 2010

This weekend marks the second annual Travel Blog Exchange conference, where bloggers, writers, industry-insiders, and two confirmed Eskimos (I know, weird, huh?) will be in New York City for a weekend full of scholarly lectures, liquid-fueled mixers, and almost certain World Cup-viewing excursions. Unfortunately for most, the conference sold out months ago, but fortunately for […]

Your Guide To Dodging The G20

Friday, June 25, 2010

Yesterday there was tension in the air. Riding around downtown Toronto, doing some errands, it was clear that drivers and transit-drivers seemed to be in a foul mood.
