One of the most fabulous shopping destinations in the world, New York is overflowing with designer fashion boutiques and gorgeous stores brimming with accessories. Whilst many people are familiar with the big name shopping complexes, such as the Rockerfeller Center and the Walden Galleria Mall, there are loads of lesser-known independent shops where you can pick up unique items.

Sweet Tooth Traveler: Whitby, England

Filed under England, Food Culture, general

Whitby, England is best known for its stunning sea-side views; gorgeous abbey ruins; and links to Braum Stoker’s Dracula. But let me tell you, don’t leave town without sampling the sweets. In particular, I never miss a chance to eat cake at Marie Antoinette’s Patisserie. These sky-high cakes and super fresh scones are worth the trip.  Last time I was there I got a slice of chocolate brownie cheesecake and a slice of banoffee. Delicious! The cafe is tiny, but charming. With only a few tables downstairs and a few more upstairs, it makes for an intimate tea-time setting.

Daytime Eats in Portland, ME

Every time I go back to my home state of Maine for a visit, I try to rediscover Portland. This seaside city has an easily walked urban center that feels both homey and international. Better than that, though, are the abundant options for dining. It feels like every other doorway leads into a cute cafe, brasserie, bar, sandwich shop, or restaurant with a different spin on cuisine. Here’s where to go if you find  yourself with a day in this cheery port city.

Road Trip Australia: Ocean, Wine and Wilderness

This article is dedicated to you from carsales.com.au


One of the best ways to see and experience a country is by car.  A road trip is idyllic, and also very practical.  It’s a go-at-your-own-pace way to tour, and since there’s so much to see in Victoria, Australia, you’ll want to take your time!

Here’s a trip itinerary that can take you from Melbourne south though the Yarra Valley, to Philip Island and the Mornington Peninsula.  The trip is under 600 km, or less than 400 miles, and you could take a week or only a few days, depending on your agenda.

Filed under Singapore
No Gravatar

Situated at the end of the Malay Peninsula, Singapore is the gateway to the east and Australasia. As a city and a state, it recently celebrated its 42nd anniversary of independence and now attracts millions of tourists a year.  Singapore is the hub city for many airlines and is a great stopover for visitors going to Australia or further east.   It has an amazing amount of shopping malls, but it also has some interesting architecture, botanical gardens and a beach resort.  For a 48 hour stopover, there is more than enough to do.

Maine Beer for Maine Lobster

Filed under Food Culture, general

I’ve been enjoying a few glorious summer weeks in Maine. Perfect weather, good company, and all the sea breeze I could want. What I haven’t had yet is lobster, but that will be rectified (steamed, never grilled) shortly. But what to drink with my summertime seafood in Maine? Grab a growler jug and let’s see which of the local beers I tried will go best with fresh crustacean.

Top Sights on Isle of Skye, Scotland

About a year ago while browsing photos of beautiful travel destinations on Pinterest, I stumbled upon a place that looked like it belonged in a children’s story book. The combination of blues, purples and greens in the Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye, Scotland looked too good to be true. I marked the location as a future destination and waited for the timing (and weather) to be right. Last week, that time finally came.
