Ski Chalets: To Cater Or Not To Cater, That Is The Question

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Your legs are still burning from the days last run. You’re finishing up an après drink waiting for the rest of the group. You’re hungry, it’s cold, and you’re exhausted from flailing around the slopes of Chamonix, France. The last thing you want to do, now, is look for, or worse yet, cook your own […]

See For Yourself What Draws People To Nepal

Thursday, October 22, 2009

For a little inspiration to travel to Nepal, check out Warmeye’s (I assume that’s a pseudonym or he had very hippyish parents) amazing video from his trip to the “Roof of the World.” Anyone else get that creepy Twin Peaks sensation when you see that guy at 1:35?

Tour The “Other” Paris

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

I never understood why people take those tours that lead you to all of a particular city’s most popular attractions. Do you really need to shell out 20 euros to have someone point you in the direction of the Eiffel Tower or Vatican City? That’s like four bottles of wine you could’ve spend that cash […]

Kenya’s Flamingo Park Recognized

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Pink is the new black. That’s what the trend setters are saying, right? Honestly, fashion sense said goodbye to me long ago, so I’ll stick to sharing news coming out of Kenya’s Nakuru National Park. That way no one will be mixing argyle with horizontal stripes (unless that’s cool now). Described as “greatest bird spectacle […]

When Has Your Meal Had A Story Like This?

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

So much more than the “leeks, onions, garlic, and other greens” that swim amidst the odd presence of sliced hotdogs and Spam, one of Korea’s favorite dishes, Budae Jjigae, is a stew with a backstory not likely associated with most meals, as’s own Jon Wick finds out in this piece. Arising out of the […]

Who Are The Worst Airline Passengers?

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

O.K., we’ve all been there: the nightmare transatlantic flight with the bad food that makes it even worse. Brutal, right? This Travelocity online survey was conducted recently (the results can be found here) to finally let the cat out of the bag as to who the worst airline passengers really are. Their results? Smelly neighbors and […]

Experiencing Norway’s Winter Sports And Living To Tell About It (Barely)

Sunday, October 18, 2009

What do you get when you mix dog sledding, .22 rifles, and Norway’s most famous liquor? How about an unforgettable weekend experiencing the best of Norway’s winter sports. Emerging onto a 3,000-foot plateau in central Norway, the moment freezes. To the east, hundreds of miles of virgin tracks glide enticingly away through the countless conifers […]

Meat City: Copenhagen’s Up And Coming Art Scene

Friday, October 16, 2009

Yes, Meat City. More specifically, a still functioning meatpacking district of Copenhagen. Finally, artists, club goers, and butchers are together at last. The city owned, Kodbyen District (literally Meat City — I didn’t come up with that), is undergoing an innovative change, to say the least, where all of the abandoned butcheries are now being […]

Where Are This Winter’s Hot Spots In Latin America?

Friday, October 16, 2009

The NY Daily News ticks off some of their favorite hotspots this summer in Latin America. A few may not exactly be terribly insightful (it’s a given Buenos Aires and Rio are great to see come late November), but there were a few good suggestions here I’d take some time to check out.
