With its half-ruined castled dominating the heights above the university-town on the banks of the Neckar river, Heidelberg is a pedestrian's dream. "Picturesque" may have become a cliché, but this German city exemplifies the meaning. I'd been here...

Maria Luiza 131, 1202 Sofia Center, Sofia, Bulgaria
It's not until you go overseas do you realize that things are just that little bit different. This room at the Sofia Princess Hotel was on the smaller side than US rooms and with a "firmer" mattress; the room card was needed to run the lights in...
During my time in Sofia I took a drive south to the famous Rila Monastery. This surprisingly colorful building was established in the 10th century, but experienced multiple raids during the Ottoman occupation and suffered a fire in the 19th...

I was driving down Highway 6 when I spotted a local carnival. I pulled over, parked, and stayed for several hours watching traditional folk music and dancing, wrestling (big in Bulgaria) matches, and general merriment. I love that the festival...

I would say this happened at the height of our enthusiasm for voluntouring. We spent 6 weeks in a rustic little village, tending to animals and farming, in central Bulgaria. It was one of those old farm villages where all the houses are clustered...

Momofuku Milk Bar is one of those places in NYC that's always being raved about. Its desserts are incredible, it's worth the wait in line, best place to get your sugar fix...... It's all true! Ok, maybe not the 'best' part because I still haven't...
1005 W Burnside St, Portland, OR 97209, USA

The JP Morgan Library's grand, old-world elegance immediately transports you to turn-of-the-century New York. And at that time, there was almost no one more powerful than financier JP Morgan. He launched U.S. Steel and even served as the...
One of my favorite things about London is the mix of old and new architecture. Take this view (from the Tate Modern Museum) of the Millennium Bridge and St. Paul's Cathedral. If you're an architecture buff, a walking tour (or two...or three!) will...
