You know there’s something going on in a city’s dining scene when the NYT’s gets wind of it. This week’s travel section highlighted the Chilean port city of Valparaíso where, with over 40 new restaurants in Cerro Concepción and Cerro Alegre alone, the city’s foodie scene is firmly in resurgent mode. “Unesco made Valparaíso’s historic […]

Athens: A Must See City Once Again

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Greece has always been on my list of places to get to. Athens conjures up so many images in my mind. Say it with me, “Athens.” It must be the ancient legends, the great thinkers, and the lightning bolt-toting gods walking around town. Besides, my fondness for toga parties really goes without saying. Apparently, Zeus […]

Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Countries For 2010: And The Winner Is . . .

Friday, November 6, 2009

Lonely Planet’s doling out accolades to these ten countries as being very topping, with El Salvador being the toppingist of them all. Okay, they don’t really elaborate as to what this list mean, other than being the “hottest countries for next year,” but I assume they mean destinations that are, or have been, under the […]

What’s It Like To Travel To Singapore . . . In Five Minutes?

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Whenever I’m doing my own videos (next to come on Monday!), I’m always thinking, “How can I really immerse a viewer in the experience of the trip?” Well, one way to do that, would just go ahead and make a video where the viewer sees everything that you did. And I mean everything. Like David’s […]

Which Tacky Souvenirs Found Their Way Into Your Bag?

Thursday, November 5, 2009

We’re all guilty, don’t feel too bad. It could have been the gold, waving cat from Hong Kong that you bought for Aunt Mabel, the “I Love Hawaii” picture frame from the resort gift shop, or even a certain wooden toilet seat, complete with Spanish flag and a certain male appendage. We’ve all bought them […]

All Of The Whistler At Half The Price

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Today marks 100 days until the Olympic torch gets to Vancouver. Happy Olympics, everyone! Personally, I’m stoked, and I’m in a state of constant scheming to find a way there. The problem I run into, are thoughts of “Whistler, snow, mountains, mmm . . .” that usually vanish quickly because of, “Olympics . . . prices jacked […]

File Under Reasons I’m Jealous Of Londoners: Weekend Trips To Damascus

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Nothing frustrates me more than when I read about Londoners discussing simple weekend trips to such places as southern Spain, Morocco, or as is the case here, Damascus. (Why isn’t my my house in New York a few thousand miles closer to the European continent?) Though perhaps a little tougher to explore a few years […]
