- …where to eat and what to order in Singapore.
- …why Venice, Italy reminded me of playing with model trains.
- …cooking classes in Italy.
- …and much more!
A recent visit to Venice, Italy got me thinking about the model train set I had as a kid, and how it taught me the meaning of scale.
“In Tavola is a cooking school in Italy where I took a brief 3-hour lesson, designed not to make me into the next Barefoot Contessa, but to make me believe that whipping up a delicious 3-course Italian meal is not only doable, but also fun.”
“When I wrote The Human Race, I wanted it to portray something I had learned on one of our last excursions to Iceland: that this mesmerisingly beautiful country is being torn apart. Literally.”
“It was exactly two decades ago that a young man built a tribute in Florida to a musician he revered. It was no statue, though – no lifeless representation of what had once been. This young man decided to build a youth hostel as his tribute, and through the energy and vitality of the community that grew within it, he created a heaving and breathing monument that captured the spirit of his idol.”
“Frolic in these attractive out-of-the-way beaches with your friends or loved ones and immerse yourself in the culture of each city. With these 7 destinations, you are sure to satisfy your craving for sun, sand, sights, and savory dishes.”
“Throughout recent years I’ve been traveling mostly by car; the cars of those who are kind enough to let me ride with them to be exact. Many people often ask me whether that’s dangerous, time consuming, or challenging. In fact it’s none of that, but rather I find it exciting, refreshing, and also definitely cheap.”
“After 7 years in Singapore, I moved out but visited frequently and found myself religiously visiting a few places every single time. If you ever find yourself in Singapore, this is where the money is…”
“They were two great big sticks. Maybe six inches thick and four feet long. OK more like small tree trunks but to Matt they were dawdle sticks.”
“The ‘top 10’ list I have compiled highlights a variety of differences between each tourist attraction, but hopefully through the pictures provided you will be able to see why these places are very popular landmarks.”
“A twelve part journal of a 2010 hike on the Camino de Santiago in Spain.”
“I visited the magnificent Côte d’Azur and a few other spots in France this year and the sceneries and landscapes blew me away… These are a few shots I took during my travels.”
“Fancy going abroad this Christmas to experience something a bit different? There are plenty of places across Europe which will provide you with a very special and unique Christmas break, so take a look at the following destinations and see if one of these sounds like a good place to spend the festive season.”
