My second installment in my "A-Z of travel" takes readers on a trip to a French country house transported to New York City, a palace made of corn, and on a ride guaranteed to get a song stuck in your head:

Most people don’t like their passport photo but mine is worse than yours, I guarantee it. It was taken a few years back when I weighed 30 pounds more than I do know, no doubt a result of my ongoing donut fetish. There was more hair but it was…Continue

We’re pretty excited for summer 2012. We’ll be staying two weeks in the French region of la Dordogne … for free!
We have managed to secure a spot at a lovely bed and breakfast or chambre d’hôte in this culinary mecca known for their truffles and foie gras. Alas, no grey poupon.

This was the message that I received from my body about 9 months ago. (Well, I had to clean that up a little. “Shlep” was the most offensive blog-friendly word that I could think of.) My shirts felt tight, my face looked doughy, and the less said about the time that I split my pants at the fancy cocktail party and everyone saw my polka dot boxers, the better.
Caro and I had been living in Toronto for 8 months and the local Pizza Pizza was our best friend. Seriously, I wanted to tell…Continue

I'm not a professional photographer, I do not have a black and white camera and yes, I may have enhanced some of these with Photoshop. But sometimes color just doesn't capture the drama of scene; and sometimes draining out the RGBs and CMYKs just looks cooler. For cities like London and San Fran, where a gray day is as common as a gawking tourist, it's almost natural to view the cityscape through fog-colored lenses.
To see some of my favorites, check out…Continue

Traveling the world can seem a daunting task if going alone, which is why many people don't travel until they can find a travel partner. Unfortunately, finding a travel partner who shares the same travel dreams isn't always easy.
For this reason, I took to traveling solo, regardless of my fear. Here is a little post I cooked up on the topic explaining both the benefits of solo…Continue

I was lucky to get the chance to see some of these eagle hunters in action when in Kyrgyzstan last November. The eagles are trained from birth by their owners who grow a special bond in the process. This has been a practice in Central Asia for around 6000 years.
See more photos of the eagle hunters >>…Continue

A lot of people wonder how would they know that the faint streak that they sometimes see in the sky at night, is a cloud or a faint northern light.
The answer is : look for the stars. If you can see the stars through the faint light then it is the Aurora. If you can't then in all probability it is a cloud and in a cloudy sky, it is difficult to see the aurora anyway. You need a clear sky. The micro climate of Abisko actually promises a lot more clear nights than some other places. …Continue

The Napa Valley you dream of is not in California, at least for those of us who don't own a boutique vineyard. The Napa you dream of exists halfway across the world, slightly north of Rome, nestled quietly on an Etruscan hillside where grape vines stretch as big as Yountville, strung across undulating greenery from one ancient castle to the next. Don't go to California expecting the Napa of your dreams; because that's Tuscany.
Napa is something else altogether. The bits and…Continue

I survived! No-one is more surprised than me....but let me explain. Japan, to say the least, was an impromptu trip. As of mid-January, I'd been on crutches for almost two and a half months, which had whittled my social life down to the movie nights, dinner parties and booze fests that I could host in my shoebox. Gone were the dinners out, the nights dancing,…Continue
